The U.S. PlayStation Home space has today received a number of new features, including the SOCOM Tactical Operations Center space and some movie and game-themed personal spaces.

At the SOCOM hub, you will be able to plot the next course of action with your friends by gathering around the Telestrator tool and coordinating your next assault. Chock full of maps and modes from SOCOM: Confrontation, the Telestrator is a powerful tool that the Home community can use to collaborate and strategize. On top of this, the Operations Centre boasts a regional leaderboard that pulls data from the SOCOM site and updates Career stats (such as all-time ranking, kills, deaths, and kills/deaths ratio) in real-time. And in an imminent refresh of the TOC you’ll also be able to purchase a slew of related virtual items to decorate your avatar with.

Today you'll also find a Ghostbusters Firehouse personal space available for purchase. This 3-floor space comes jam-packed with tons of furniture and assorted decorations at no additional charge (including your very own Ecto-1). The Ghostbusters Firehouse comes with full Loot Stage Set functionality (including move props and portable blue screens) so you can stage your own Ghostbusters machinima.

Electronic Arts is also freshening up their EA SPORTS Complex with additional Racing tracks, a leaderboards, Racing Boost Shop, and Poker updates (including bracelets for the ladies). y significant update to the Complex, so if you haven’t been over for a while, this Thursday would be a dang fine time to drop on by.

There's also some more game-related virtual items, including the free inFAMOUS Cole Costume.

Finally, there's also news that the Killzone 2 Visari’s Throne and the Namco Bandai Museum are indeed coming to SCEA’s version of PlayStation Home. A launch date has yet to be confirmed.

European Home roamers can look forward to a new Everybody's Gold space and a Rag Doll Kung Fu fish rug today. Cheers!
