Time- A First Look at PlayStation Home

"I've been playing with Home for a month or so, and I think it's the most realistic-looking implementation yet of a 3-D world - more startling than even Linden Lab's Second Life. (Though in fairness to Second Life, Home is far more limited in scale: There's not much more than a shopping mall with a theater, a bowling alley and an apartment complex. That will change over time, of course.)"

Its a fair preview, even though I disagree with "opening the Platform" for users. This isn't Second Life, were people make porn and post it in their space, this is Home, it is a Service were people of all ages gather together, socialize and game, with the integration of PS3/PSN games on the side.

If they do open it up a bit, they would have to find a way in which they can moderate such material. Other than that, the content within Home is going to update every week, heck, maybe everyday.

They need to add some more sliders for the avatars as far as the bodies are concerned. The proportions seem off like the old Entropia Universe models were. Also some of the skin textures are blotchy.

Skerj3655d ago

Well then, if tonight what I said has not changed then you shall never question what I say ever again for the rest of your natural life. Deal? Deal.

he says 17 million ps3 owners and "a scant 200,000 of whom live in the U.S." WTF!? 200,000 PS3 owners in the US?! What is this guy smoking?

darkdoom30003655d ago (Edited 3655d ago )

wow, the US hates the PS3 more than i thought!!!


either that a bad typo, or the editor skipped out 5rd grade maths.
