Sony Pictures wants to let us know about Loot, which is a newly formed group of developers that will create experiences and products for PlayStation Home.

The first Loot release is the Living Room Stage Set. This is the same Home Space we mentioned earlier in the week. It lets you work with a full range of movie production props and equipment like cameras, lights, backdrops and furniture. With these things you can direct and even act in your own production.

“PlayStation Home has one of the most engaged communities with more than five million users, and there is a tremendous appetite for virtual goods and social experiences,” said Jack Buser, director of PlayStation Home at SCEA.

“We’re always looking for new and innovative ways to grow the PlayStation Home community and believe that Loot offers cutting edge social tools and experiences for our users to further communicate and engage with one another.”

Get Living Room Stage Set now in PlayStation Home at the mall, in the Estates store for $4.99. Has anyone tried this out? We'll see if we can't give it a spin soon and maybe make some dirty movies.

“We saw an opportunity to expand on the PlayStation Home experience for users who wanted additional collaborative and creative experiences,“ said David Sterling, Vice President of Business Development for Sony Pictures Entertainment’s Digital Authoring Center and General Manager of Loot. “Loot is dedicated to using state-of-the-art technology to bring the entertainment world to gamers through interactive virtual products like Living Room Stage Set.”
