Sony PlayStation Home is Cozier When You Watch Movies with Friends

There isn't much to say about PlayStation Home that hasn't been said before. For most, it's just a big space that feels like you're the only one in it. The movie theater seems to only play "C" movies and the slushies at the ice rink are luke warm at best. After three redesigns, it appeared that Sony was really just missing the mark. However, the PlayStation Home may have some life still left in it, or it at least will go down kicking and screaming.

Sony announced that it will be offering full length movies for free, streamed by Sony's Crackle network (no Snap or Pop), with the ability for others to watch with you. I do recall Netflix and the Xbox 360 having that feature for a while now. However, with Home, you will now be able to watch with 60 other users publicly, or in private parties of up to 11 friends.

Crackle's movies and shows are available for streaming pleasure right now and users can access live Ustream broadcasts and RadioIO music channels in December. Want to know more about Crackle? We have a short video and the press release below.
