Users have embraced 'PlayStation Home' with unexpected fervency, AfterDawn reports. According to PlayStation Home Director Peter Edward, the application reached an impressive figure - 6.5 million downloads.
"We do have a profit and loss on Home, and obviously revenue is an important part of it, just like with anything else. But our belief is that if you make the community happy, and get good content on to the platform - if you get a platform that people want to keep coming back to - then the monetisation aspect of it will almost take care of itself,” explained Edwards.
"It's certainly not something that should be the driving force - not something that's the driving priority at this stage of development.”
Edward went on emphasizing that Home is a strategic platform for PlayStation and that the company while is considering some monetizing systems for it wants to focus at this moment on user interaction.
"We're at the point now where we're starting to see our active user base go up, and we're getting more people coming back than are leaving, so we're at the tipping point of where the platform starts to gain momentum," Edward added.
