If you didn't already know, the games in PlayStation Home go well beyond the fun carnival attractions found at the Midway.

The games within Home just keep getting bigger and more in-depth; the latest is Conspiracy by Jet Set Games. Dubbed a "social spy-based game," you will go undercover as a secret agent and "explore a clandestine world where secretive corporations engage in a daily war over intelligence and technology." You can ally with the organization of your choice and that decision will impact the missions that will be available. You're on a quest to nab "The Goods," which is the ultimate goal and the reason this daily war amongst rival corporations exists. You'll have to test your mettle against guards, turrets, security systems and other traps and obstacles, all the while solving puzzles to pick up valuable intel.

The coolest part? Players will combine that intel with info found outside the game via social networks and community forums, which will help them unravel the real conspiracy- who's really in charge of the whole thing? Said Jet Set Games president Rade Stojsavljevic:

"We’ve built an incredibly robust multiplayer online game to bring Conspiracy to life. It was important to us to create an experience that pulled the PlayStation Home community together, not only inside the game but also through social networking sites, to challenge them to use their ingenuity and work together to solve the puzzles and gain the rewards."

The game is up and running for Home users in North America, and will launch in European territories "in the coming weeks." Conspiracy is entirely free, although players can upgrade their gadgets by purchasing new abilities via micro-transactions on the PSN. Featuring everything from Puzzle-Based Raids to gadgets and outfits for your intrepid spy, this one ought to be quite entertaining. And the idea of expanding the experience beyond the game itself, into a "social structure" of sorts that exists in quasi-reality, is pretty damn inventive.

Give it a shot the next time you wander into Home. Also, feel free to learn more about Conspiracy at the Jet Set website .

Home needs a Kevin Butler commercial that highlights all the good things and then mentions how it's free.

these last couple of weeks i been in Home & then launching Gt5 from Home.

Home has so much content now its amazing i only took a break from it for a year & now there so many spaces & folks involved with Home now its like another realm of socializing.

if anybody buys a ps3 but cant afford a game they dont even have to worry cause its so many games in Home & community interaction is crazy. 1 day in Home you can establish atleast 5 friends…. im aslo seeing a large increase in females being involed in Home & im not talking dressups i mean actual females..

A lot of the really crappy problems early on for female users have been solved. Home really has solidified incredibly over the last year or so.

Wow that sounds pretty cool!. I didn't know Home had their own set of games. I should go on Home more often then I do.

Yep, they're growing in number. I keep wondering whether Sony will ultimately put a real MMO out that you can transition into directly from Home, as if it was a Home space.

FreeRealms on the PS3 for example. It would be so cool to be able to go to a Homespace for the game, use a locker or whatever to switch to your FreeRealms costume and then enter the game directly.
