Here's an excerpt:
Imagine a three-dimensional avatar-based socializing sim like Second Life. Now cross it with the online gaming and matchmaking features of Xbox Live. Leaven with dynamic streaming in-game advertising a la Massive, throw in some Pogo.com-esque casual gaming, and add a dash of Sneak King-like merchandising. Heat, stir, let cool, serve, and--voila--you've got Home, the new online service for the PlayStation 3.
Gamer first, Member second, Retired Moderator third.
No, I'm not a Moderator, but I did stay at a Holiday Inn Express last night.
But the graphics are much better, gaming is incorporated into Home to a much further extent, you can launch straight into a game from Home, and Playstation Home is on a gaming console! That sets it apart from the many massive online communities on computers
I think everyone that’s saying Home is just like secondlife is forgetting one small detail the original EQ which has been out way longer than Secondlife and still has a loyal following even with the release of EQ II and all the other MMO's out there Sony has proven themselves extremely competent when it comes to the online world. So IMO Secondlife should just be called Secondrate I recently downloaded it just to check it out. And I must say.......It's **bleep**
the similarities between Home and Secondlife end at the fact they are both of the MMO type and that is all they have in common Buying and selling virtual real state. WTH maybe its just me but if I am going to spend real money to buy land I am going to buy Real Land in a Real World not on my PC. Just remember who one of the first kids on the block to have an extremely successful game of this type . SOE so if anything I feel people are just ripping them off (for lack of a better description ) so in closing Thank You Sony for giving us something else to shut the Fan Boys up with ….LoL like the PS3 wasn’t enough already.
Clothes are free, and some furniture is as well, but you don't have to buy stuff. You don't have to pay money at all...
