Playstation Home sees real-estate boom


If you've ever worried about the size of your apartment, chances are Playstation Home offers a solution-a larger virtual apartment to accommodate all of your friends at once. According to senior manager of Sony's developer support group, Justin Cooney, "People are wanting to do things in Home – they're spending a lot of time in Home."

And a lot of people at that: Cooney reports some 14 million users of the virtual space, 85% of whom are repeat users. Personal spaces are one area of note, and Cooney says lots of people buy apartments for their very own Playstation Homes-by the hundreds of thousands.

The most popular is the Summer House. Says Cooney: "This apartment did over $350,000 in [North America] alone."
