Sony’s recently redesigned PlayStation Home project has always been about bringing online social experiences to the PS3 that mirror their real-world counterparts: hanging out in your apartment with friends, window shopping at the mall, Quincying. Now it can add one more notch to its virtual world experience belt by offering the ability to view full length movies for free, streamed by Sony’s Crackle network. If you’re a frequent user of Xbox Live’s Netflix Movie Parties this may sound like old hat (were we the only ones using that feature?), but now all PS Home users — in North America — can do social viewing with up to 60 users or private parties with up to 11 at a time. Crackle’s selection of movies and TV shows are available today, while live broadcast UStream events (Engadget podcast party anyone?) and musical stations provided by RadioIO are scheduled to debut in December. Press play on the video above for a quick preview or check after the break for a celebratory press release.
