Sony announced at the Gamescom 2009 that there will be a new Playstation Home update. The Sony Playstation Blog now details the Playstation Home update which is supposed to be launched next month.

Playstation Home 1.3 will allow users to launch any PS3 game directly from Home. Titles that fully support game launching (like Street Fighter IV, Resistance 2, MotorStorm, and Far Cry 2) will be identified by separate icons that appear over an avatar’s head and will have varying degrees of additional multiplayer functionality built in.
The Shopping experience in Home will get an in-store item previewing option and new portable objects like cameras and bubble Machine will be available.
There are several minor improvements in Home 1.3 as well. I am not sure if the improvements will get Home to gain critical mass, but maybe the new push to get more developers to buy into Home will get the most advanced 3D community platform into over drive.
