PlayStation 'Home' open beta launches
Sony's long-delayed PlayStation Home opens its doors to the public.
If all goes according to plan, PlayStation Home will be opening its doors to the public later Thursday. The
Nintendo's Wii launched with support for that can be used in many of its games, and the Xbox 360 added avatar and enhanced community features with its November 2008 New Xbox Experience makeover. But PlayStation Home looks to be the most sophisticated virtual world to date available on a game console, with realistic graphical renderings of people and environments. The Home world features minigames, in-world music options, trophy rooms, and--of course--advertiser-supported destinations and stores.
What do you think: Is Home a game changer for the PS3? Or is it yet another environment to sell you "virtual junk" you don't need? Share your comments below.
