Loads of stuff currently in the works for Home has been revealed by Sony during Japan’s CESA Developers Conference – one of which is a Pet Robot.

Sony’s Masami Kando said that a future Home update will allow direct access to the PlayStation Store, allowing users to download demos and go into online play sessions. He then went on to show two tech demos featuring net radio broadcasts, podcasts, and television commercials allowing for synchronization between multiple users.

The robot bit came in when Kando showed a demo of a robot which could move through your Home space and react to your calls, which could be done without using a keyboard.

Keep in mind that all of this is still a work-in-progress, but it proves that Sony is determined to make Home more fun for users in the future.

    Downloaded the update and had a go. First go in a long time and it’s certainly improved a lot. Loads more areas to explore and muck about in regarding mini-games. Gettin’ there.
