I call BS.
When rumble first came out, it was a cool thing for the PSone. But when the N64 had the rumble added, did people claim they stole it from Sony? No.
If you really think Sony "stole" this idea from Nintendo then you have another thing coming. This "Home" scenario has been around for quite some time via online MMORPGS. Take chat services like IMVU, or Second LIfe and you'll be familiar with a lot of the supposed "Home" features already. Thomas Edison was a great inventor, but there were several things he didn't "invent" he just improved upon them. Sony is improving upon the idea of a 3D social environment.
I swear, some of these people have the nerve to just make up to rally support against Sony, when all Sony is doing is improving upon and perfecting already existing technology.
Personally, I can't wait for Home to come out. All the systems have something similar to the PS store, and in the future, all game systems will have things like PS Home or Mii. Why do people insist on bashing, when this is just a natural progession? They didn't bicker when when all the systems had online stores, or started using a different format. But when Sony decides to use a 3D social environment, that's where we draw the line!

That's about where I stopped reading...
Home isn't what I was expecting and the first thing that comes to mind when I see the screenshots is, "How did those chat bubbles get there? Is everyone getting a keyboard with the upgrade?"

chat bubbles for quick chat and virtual keyboard (or real if you have one)

"Playstation Home is REVOLUTIONARY!
First off, ignore all the Wii and 360 fanboy crap. Most of them know little about this new feature, and all they want to do is bash it to give themselves the smallest piece of happiness from the negativity they already have.
This is going to be amazing. Come Fall, we'll get to create EXTREMELY customizable characters, chat with friends in mall-like and outdoor lobbies, and play golf, boxing, and dance in clubs. This is a world in itself. I could not play any of my PS3 games, and live off of Homes for the rest of my life."
