Home boss Jack Buser, speaking at GDC to GI, has claimed that all large publishers are now actively looking at the service.

“Every major publisher is interested in Home,” he said. “Here you can speak directly to the PlayStation audience on the platform that your product is on.

“You have publishers and brands coming into Home looking to engage with an audience, but they also have the opportunity to generate revenue. It’s a model that makes sense for everybody. It’s kind of a perfect storm.”

Home has been used by more than 4 million PlayStation 3 owners so far.

There’s a full interview with the Home team here.

    kinda makes you sick to hear them talk about making $1 million in the first month. I bet that’s slowed some now, but really people buy that much digital plastic chairs and tees? Oh well, it’s not a terrible service and I have been there to see what’s new to do, but I usually wait for every 2nd or 3rd ‘new thing’ before visiting again. And therein lies the problem. Too often they are changing it and each time I login to see whats new I’ve had to download it all over again. I know it’s a beta but are there really that many bugs that every 3 weeks you have to revamp the central plaza? OH well it’ll get ironed out. And I have to say that I am actually surprised at how many people are online when I go in. After all the talk of it being a ghost world I find it as full as most forums at any given moment…
