Relentless boss Andy Eades has told VG that PS3′s Home is a dog that’s apparently about to have its day.
“Only now you’re starting to see that it’s realising its potential,” said the developer.
There’s still a way to go, though.
“Even now probably not quite as much as everyone would like to do,” Eades added. “But Sony has to build the tools to allow people to create content for it.
“The stuff coming through now is more compelling than when it first launched. It felt like a bit of a gap in the beginning when there wasn’t enough cool stuff happening. It always seems to be quite busy.”
More through there. Thanks, Joystiq.

This week on PS Home, the first full episode of Fullmetal Alchemist’s second season will be playing at the 10-Screen Theater for free until November 19.
There’s also a never-before-seen Final Fantasy XIII video airing tomorrow, Friday the 13th, which is more than likely the same video we mentioned to you yesterday. Probably.
Hilariously, A&E’s reality series Lawman gets an advanced screening on Home and you can even get a free virtual item – a Lawman Vest – just for walking your virtual self into the 10-Screen Theater. Never heard of the show? Well, it’s about policeman/actor Steven Seagal enforcing the law in New Orleans’ Jefferson Parish district. We’re snickering now.
One last thing, virtual Assassin’s Creed II items like hats, shirts, hoodies and wristbands are over in the Home Mall this week.
More information can be found over on the US PS Blog.

Sony has gone on the defense over a report from Edge quoting Home director Pete Edwards as stating that Home was “not a top priority”.
According to Sony’s PlayStation Home Manager, Edwards was misquoted and misrepresented.
“Edwards was saying that monetizing Home was not as big a priority as building a great platform, with a compelling environment and a strong community. Home is still a top priority for Sony and will continue to release quality content and provide a positive experience to our users,” it was explained on the official PlayStation forums.
So there you have it.

EU PlayStation Home community manager, TedTheDog, has admitted that the game space lacks the content offered elsewhere, but promises it will get more soon.
“Let’s be honest, SCEE Home is behind the other regions in the number of spaces we have to offer,” he said on the official forums. “That’s not to say we don’t have some really good clothing and furniture, we’ve actually got some excellent partners in the shopping centre.
“In isolation we don’t think this makes SCEE Home a bad place but we fully understand the regional comparisons and why they’re made.
“In the spirit of openness being requested of us, and that we’ve committed to, we’re going to say what we’re going to do about this and in short, we’re going to switch our priorities to the production of spaces for the foreseeable future. We will continue to support our partners in the shopping centre but our primary focus will be to improve our output and range of spaces.”
He explained that Europe’s version of Home fell behind due to lack of staff resources, but more content’s on the way thanks to a new hire.
“The timeline for this is probably about the next two to four months and there is likely to be a drop in output before it starts to really pick up and improve,” he said.
SCEE plans to introduce 17 new Home spaces along with the Uncharted, Warhawk and Resident Evil 5 themes already present in other regions.
