Home and Avatars

7 replies 2 views Edited Oct 25, 2008
We have all seen the famous 3d community known as Home. Well the xbot is also releasing something like Home but crappier kinda like miis. Do you think Home is gonna be better in the long run or Avatars.

Well, of course. Personally I think Xbox Live is the worse feature on the xbox. I mean screw paying for it. Get a PS3 it's all free. But back to the avatars, Yea, Home is way better.

The reason that MS us using Mii like Avatars is because they are trying to make it big in Japan where Nintendo Miis are like anime' characters, even Sony Worldwide Studios Head likes them because they are more like the Japanese culture.  So when he said that it is obvioust that Sony has a wider and more mature audience in mind.

 

MS is competeing for the "casual gamer" hopefully trying to turn them into "hardcore gamers", but that will fail.

The title of this topic brought a question to mind: Can we use our in-HOME avatar as our friends list avatar? That would be pretty awesome.

Avatars will only be better is there is an Avatar parade like the Mii parade. A parade of avtars or miis will always beat an entire 3d virtual community with tons of great features and interesting social elements hands down.
