the trouble with game spaces in HOME is that if they are disc based, you may have to insert the disk to take full advantage of that space; however, PSN games offer a much neater alternative. if you look at Drake for instance, there is going to be limitations on what the devs can do, but with Warhawk, which is on the HDD, then the sky is the limit. for instance, i can imagine an Echochrome room or a RAC room that requires you to own the game to gain access to another 'special' room with extra content. that would encourage people to buy the game as a sort of membership fee. the RAC room could be set up to bring people in who haven't got the game and have videos playing of the gameplay. there could be mini games and items for HOME available. when you talk to others and see them disappearing into another room just off the main room, that would get your interest. after seeing the footage and talking to fans of the game you decide to download it to find out what is in the other room. on entering, you are greeted with pods and more videos. these pods contain purchasable offerings for HOME, like furniture and T-Shirts... and even extra levels. within this new room you notice another room. this one not only requires you to have the game, but also ALL the Trophies from the game (note: i know RAC hasn't got Trophies, this is just an example). in this room there are extremely rare items that show your dedication for the game. the potential here is incredible.
