It’s official Ndreams have finnally gave us those most epic of details of what to expect in the Aurora 1.1 Update for Playstation Home.

So without a further of a do here are the goodies to expect once this update for Aurora Launches

Just before that though I would love to say that Aurora has had over 1 million visits  in the very short time of 6 weeks so I would love to congratulate ndreams on this very proud acheivement

Ndreams had this to say on the matter.

We’re please to announce that in the first six weeks, Aurora has received over a million visits; more than the Taj Mahal and the London Eye combined!

nDreams CEO, Patrick O’Luanaigh (@patrickol) said, “We’re very proud of Aurora and the success it has had so far. We certainly didn’t expect to have so many visitors in such a short timeframe. The space itself is still in a very early stage; we have so much more planned for Aurora, and we’ll be adding to it regularly. We’re huge proponents of virtual worlds and believe they offer a great way to escape from the stresses and strains of real-life without having to jump on a plane. And we believe that the next decade will see rapid growth in the number and the quality of virtual world experiences available online.”

As part of the launch, nDreams ran a competition called ‘Aurora War’ which pitted over 300,000 players from different countries and continents against each other. North America beat their European rivals in the battle of the Atlantic, but Portugal and Switzerland the top two individual countries, narrowly beating a spirited fight-back from Canada.

And the future? nDreams will be revealing more about the surprising history behind the floating archipelago, and they have new areas, games and events coming up in Aurora which will be constantly evolving. And they are looking into allowing visits to Aurora using a browser in addition to PlayStation Home, opening up their virtual archipelago to an even wider audience.”

Now back to the Aurora Goodies enjoy.
