As of January 2009, Sony Computer Entertainment handed out 24 licenses for PlayStation Home development. Just because a publisher has a license doesn’t automatically mean they have plans to set up shop and hock virtual items. A license means they can do that kind of thing or utilize the PlayStation Home reward system.

 

Nippon Ichi is doing exactly that by selling Prinny decorations and avatar items based on physical t-shirts. Namco Bandai used their license to integrate a collection of classic Namco arcade games into PlayStation Home in addition to selling Pac-Man t-shirts. Paon who holds the rights to a handful of Data East intellectual properties haven’t done anything with theirs.

 

Here’s the list of approved PlayStation Home developers so far:

 

Acquire
Activision
AQ Interactive
Atlus
Capcom
D3 Publisher
Disney Interactive
EA
Game Republic
Genki
Gungho
Hudson
Irem
Koei
Konami
Namco Bandai
Nippon Ichi
Paon
Q Entertainment
Sega
SNK Playmore
Spike
Tecmo
Ubisoft

 

Notice anyone missing? Square Enix isn’t on there so don’t expect a Final Fantasy XIII lounge yet.
