TIME Magazine Names Home a Top Gadget of 2008

TIME magazine has named Home as their #10 "gadget" of the year. They state that Home allows "Users create their own human-looking avatar and get a virtual apartment near the 'town square,' a base of operations from which to socialize, play games and purchase an endless variety of Sony goods and services (think games, movies, music and more.)" As well as saying that Home is a "A cross between Second Life and the Sims". (Culture, Home, PS3)

Nice
Nothing like free publicity to the MILLIONS of readers of Time magazine.

Who are probably 40+ years old and have no interest in creating a virtual doll and hanging out in a virtual space full of teenagers.

Way to hit the demographic!

@Crabby
For someone who's not in the Home beta, you seem to "know" a lot about the people that are to be found there.
Trust me, you'd be surprised by the varied demographics found in the beta.

therefore home =/= a gadget

It`s an APP that can be found on a gadget, seemingly they got there categorization obviously wrong but meh, Home is still awesome.

It will fail..........................
just like everything has for Sonys PS3 pretty much this entire gen(MGS4 aside)LOL.

Sony Home will suck(a lame ass virtual world..WTF?)....OK N4G....along with it's army of Sony fvckboys.
What a bunch of deluded pr1cks on a mundane deluded video game site.

MSs 360 and Nintendos WII are whooping your Playstation brands @ss this gen........so
basically......you fail miserably hehe.

The only victory you dorks will achieve this round,is bubble removal on N4G......enjoy.

Did anyone else happen to read the Troll's post on his blog? If not, don't bother. The internet has an infinite number of poop-chutes; that blog is one of them.

I read it.
He actually tried to act like there is noting to do in HOME. Funny, because I know a lot of people including myself that have spent hours having a great time with the application.
GiantEnemyCrab  +   2088d ago
Huh? I was confused enough calling it a "gadget" but to say it's one of the Top of 08 considering it hasn't even been released yet and there is less than a month to go in 08.

That Christmas bonus came early for somebody.
