Next month, PlayStation Home will undergo quite the change, as you know.

But before that happens, Sony has prepared an update patch for the virtual social service; it's update 1.55 and it has been fully detailed at the PlayStation Blog .

Available today, the 1.55 patch delivers all sorts of upgrades, including an improved layout, design, and color scheme, new menu options for your wardrobe and furniture browser, an option to manually clear the cache of data that Home creates on your HDD, etc. Here's a brief look:

— There is an option to view “Help” from the carousel on the Menu Pad. This is only available to new users.

— There is an option to “Redecorate” on the carousel on the Menu Pad. This is only available when you are in your Personal Space or a Clubhouse that you own (i.e. somewhere that you can place furniture).

They also say they continue to work to improve general stability, which is always a good thing. Home will shift to a definite gamer focus in October, as the new Hub and corresponding areas dedicated to various genres should appeal more to those who list gaming among their primary hobbies. Oh, and we're supposed to talk to Sony tomorrow about something else involving the PlayStation Network, but it may not be Home-related…we'll see. The info will probably be emargoed until next week, though.

I would spend more time on there if I didn't have so many connection issues.

I am aware that some the problems is on my end, but here is to hoping these newest version helps!

Hey Max! I had a lot of connection problems in Home. Just ask Fane, we talked about it for a bit. However, I needed to change my 6-year old router a couple of months ago (busted internet port) and that seems to have cleared the problem for me too! I didn't know a router change would fix for me but it did. And it wasn't a setting problem with my old router btw. Home worked perfectly with it before until crap started happening.

Great news, I've already told a few of my buds and I know one of them will definitely be purchasing that deal. I appreciate that heads-up STAY3R.

I'll be downloading this Update when I get in tonight, I enjoy home, but the one feature I'd love to see is an auto-lauch into home when you turn the system on.

I don't mind the teens, though admittedly a lot of them fall on the doofus category. What I hope I could do in Home is to "ignore the presence" of idiots regardless of who they are.

I remember this one time when I was on my way to one of PSXE's Home meeting when a group of people were talking about how "noob" I was with the simplistic clothing my avatar had on. It's one of those times when I really wanted to school such people that not everybody has the time to do customizations, but then I realized that it will be a colossal waste of time to do so. I then hoped I could permanently ignore them so that they won't appear on my Home instance. Just like banishing demons from your world!

Sadly, they are not all 12, many are a good deal older…
