PlayStation Home And The Sims 3 Screenshot Comparison

Cinemablend writes:

"I already know a lot of people are going to complain about the screenshot comparison and how ridiculous and trivial it is. Okay, point taken. But for everyone else out there who seems to think that these two software titles share a similar taste in visual style, here's a comparison to show you just how close their visual appearances are."

without even looking... is there a point? ¬¬

CIO Caveman Trolls3464d ago

there is.. Home is destined to be failed, not the other way around for Sims 3

ultimolu3464d ago

Lol @ Descendant. That was some major ownage, o.o

Though...I would inform everyone that they need to ignore Nai because he/she has no idea what they're talking about.

gaffyh3463d ago

Home looks better. But the Sims is more of a game.

Yipee Bog3463d ago

and its not even a game, its a free social networking service for a games console. cool

CommonSense3463d ago

Figured it would of been more appropriate to see it compared to Second Life. I see $ony has even hired ex-Second Life staff for Home.

Not surprised, they used all the ideas of XBL for PSN so I can see why they look to other online sausage fest's for Home. Another original idea from $ony.. LOL

Danja3464d ago

dude give it up , and if M$ hasn't copied enough ideas from the Playstation hardware and implemented it on the 360....360 is a wannabe PS2...but it fails miserably

if Sony didn't enter the game industry im sure you wouldn't have a Xbox 360...

NaiNaiNai3464d ago

same goes for sony idiot. how many ideas do they have that they stole from nintendo and sega. you sony fans have your eyes shut, and your asses open.

keep in mind, A. sony did not make the first analog, nintendo did, the first ps1s did not ship with it. sony and nintendo where working to gether untill true and noble sony said, "nope" we are going to screw you and make one our selfs. same for there customer support. if it was so great then. A. why do they have to take items out of home. B. shut down your game servers.

also Home is just a cheaper version of second life. and if you deny that your a idiot.

and last. the ps2, is a cheap system in its own, new systems dont have backwards compantabily. so what your paying 400$ to play MGS4m LBP, and KZ2, and thats really it. nothing else that is major or cant find a similar experience, and dont go, its a cheap blue-ray... they just had blue rays at my hastings for 189.99 and they where sony brand, not cheap ones.

Danja3464d ago (Edited 3464d ago )

you need to STFU if you dont know what ur talking about...everyone knows that Nintendo was the one who screwed Sony over by announcing they were gonna work with Phillips instead.

Home and second life while they share similar characteristics they both have different agendas set....so in the case Home is obviously influenced by Second Life but it's so much different also...so there you go again blabbin away not knowing wat ur really talking about.

The PS3 might not have BC right now but who says Sony wont emulate BC through a Firmware update later down the road...? thats the thing PS3
can still get BC ne time....

I didn't know KZ2 was out already ne ways...everyone knows that the PS3 has alot of great EXCLUSIVES..so I wont even waste my time listing them.

The PS3 is far from being a cheap Blu ray player it's actually the best Blu Ray player on the market..

ur entire post wreaks of envy that u dont own a PS3....dont worry a Price Drop is on it's way..XD

"A. sony did not make the first analog, nintendo did, the first ps1s did not ship with it."

I agree with you, however, isn't it sony's style of business to always improve on their products through iterations during the products lifespan? thus the ps1 got the "dual shock/2 analog stick" controller after being out for a while and then getting slimmed down with the psone. also, the ps2 had constant improvements in hardware where they would rework the innards of the ps2 (thus there were different sku models...it also explains why modding a ps2 depends on what model you have). it's generally sony's way of improving on their product line that is already out. there seems to always be a newer version of their hardware that is slimmed down or have slightly different features added/taken out. (i.e. the ps2 slim, psp-1000/2000/3000, ps3 models with different hard drive sizes and less usb ports and without memory card readers)

"same for there customer support. if it was so great then. A. why do they have to take items out of home. B. shut down your game servers."

i don't know...i guess their support isn't so great? you should really ask sony that...i suppose the fact that their online services are free allows them to do as they please. i mean, i guess that can really suck. it's a double-edged sword and you get what you pay for.

"also Home is just a cheaper version of second life. and if you deny that your a idiot. "

i have to 100% agree with your statement. why? because i don't want to be an idiot. =( and also, because Home as a service is completely free as far as i know...so that makes it cheaper right? i mean...cheap means less money...and Home doesn't require money unless you want to personalize your experience, therefore it must be cheaper! =P

i'm not arguing that sony has "copied" other companies of the past. why is it so wrong to copy anyway? i mean, yea they've "copied" a lot, but at least they try (keyword: try) to make improvements on it. okay, they may have copied nintendo's analog (i don't know if it's fact, but i'm going on your word on it) but didn't they try to make the anolog sticks feel more comfortable and add 2 of them while the N64 had just one? i'm pretty sure i read that sony worked with nintendo to make their next console after NES/SNES, but ditched nintendo because they didn't want to go with a newer format which was the CD-ROM...thus the playstation was born. i guess you can even argue that sony copied nintendo completely by just entering the console market. i mean, didn't every console copy the console that has existed the generation before it? i mean...just to be even more cynical, aren't we all copies of past generations due to our genetic make-up? seriously! what is so wrong about copying? i suppose copying may be very useless and stupid if it's done just for the pure sense of doing it (without making any changes) and hopefully making some sort of profit off of it. but dude...i'm sure sony, microsoft, and nintendo have all copied SOMETHING and tried to improve on that copy, right? if i'm not then please just tell me that whenever i play my ps3, that i'm actually playing a nintendo system because it has dual analog sticks on a controller that rumbles for a system that plays games which happens to be similar to previous consoles because it too plays games.

anyway, my point is...dude...there can be no way to improve anything if you don't take something that already exists and try to add to it. and yes i mean "improve" in a purely subjective and relative sense.

NaiNaiNai3464d ago

tell me, if i have to put up with all your moronic ps3 owners, why would i want the system, tell me. i would rather have to deal with the 360 owners, at least they know how to take jokes, or have fun, you guys are so serious. its pathetic. and tell me again, how is second life not like home.....also what are some other ps3 titles. that will apeal to a mass group. yea theres other great exclusive titles. but every system has great exclusives. so tell me, uncharted is amazing, but does everyone, or even alot of people want it....no. what about GT5P...nope theres alot of hardcore fans, but do you really think, they all care about a fancy demo.....also so your telling me that KZ2 is going to be crap. you guys are pathetic. when someone insults a game you like. you bash them, when they use the game you like and you don't like the person. you bash them anyways.

so tell me, who would want to join the sony circus....not many people. you guys even have people who go on XBL and go. i have a ps3 and you dont. so tell me again, if its so great, why not play it instead of insulting the 360 all day.

FYI i could really care less about being called a fanboy. i own mutiple systems, and i enjoy them. i only say crap, cause its so fun pissing you guys off. not to mention so easy.

"same goes for sony idiot. how many ideas do they have that they stole from nintendo and sega. you sony fans have your eyes shut, and your asses open."

So then I guess Nintendo stole the CD disc idea from Sony too? Companies use ideas if they work even if they didn't think of them themselves.

"keep in mind, A. sony did not make the first analog, nintendo did, the first ps1s did not ship with it. sony and nintendo where working to gether untill true and noble sony said, "nope" we are going to screw you and make one our selfs. same for there customer support. if it was so great then. A. why do they have to take items out of home. B. shut down your game servers."

Sony might have used the analog idea from Nintendo, but guess what? Sony did used it a lot better than Nintendo did. N64 controllers were horrible. Also you need to read up on the Sony/Nintendo collaboration. Because last I checked it was Nintendo who abandoned Sony behind their back and teamed up with Philps soon after.

Also Sony has as much right as taking items out of home as Microsoft charging you money to play online with your friends. Also to my understanding all those items werent items you paid with your own money. It was just free items. As far as servers go its still a beta..hence the "Beta" logo next to the Home name.

"also Home is just a cheaper version of second life. and if you deny that your a idiot.

Never even heard of Second Life until I started using this site. Of course Home from what I understand is free....so what is your problem exactly? As far as the 400 dollar price tag; I honestly don't feel like listing all the things why. In fact the same could be said about the 360 and Wii with the way you critized PS3's price.

Here let me show you... the Xbox is a cheap system in fact so cheap you can't even find them new at any retail stores anymore due to it being a failure in Microsoft's eyes. Also the 360's has limited backwards compabilties, so what your paying 200 dollars for with no harddrive just to play Gears and Halo and that's really it.

Little contradition their Nai. Your above statement states you don't own a PS3 yet, and then your bottom statement says your not a fanboy because you own multiple systems. Hmmm I am guessing out of your multiple systems you don't have a PS3; in which you critized. Thus complaining about a system that you don't own makes you a fanboy in many ways.

Also i love how you defend yourself by saying your just saying crap. Although I do agree that you are you then claim your doing it on purpose, in which its so funny because I know that isn't true. So your wrong, a fanboy AND a liar. Wow sucks to be you right now.

HAHAHHAHAHA LMAO LMAO LMAO LMAO!!!! BUTT HURT 360 fanboy LMAO!!!! That was sweet sweet ownage Descedant! Nice one!

PLiPhaze3464d ago

Ouch dude you owned him DIFFERENTLY!!!

acedoh3463d ago

At first it was a threat to SEGA as Nintendo would have a disc based add-on to compete with the Genesis and SEGA CD. It was a great idea for Nintendo fans as it would bring SONY innovation with Nintendo games. Instead Nintendo felt threatened by a company as big as SONY and duped SONY for Phillips. Of course this propelled SONY into creating their first Playstation. This also kept Nintendo from getting CD rights. Some may agrue that point but there is a reason Nintendo has never actually had a CD based format. SONY could have did the same thing with Microsoft with Blu-ray but that would hurt SONY.

rockleex3463d ago

"tell me, if i have to put up with all your moronic ps3 owners"

Umm... you and all the other 360 fanboys CHOOSE to put up with PS3 owners.

You spend so much time TRYING to bash the PS3 on PS3 articles I wonder if you even read 360 articles. -_-"

But of course, I wouldn't know whether you read 360 articles or not because I don't go on them 24/7 like you are doing with PS3 articles.

Looks like The Sims is a fossil of the 90's while Home is a social application perfected for the 21st century gamer.

VMAN_013464d ago

You know some people could just say XBL copied Steam but know its Sony copies this Sony copies that you fanboys act like only Sony copies other companies.

Woundedpeasant3464d ago

LMAO your a f*&%ing Idiot ive seen you rant on here a million times, if you want to talk bad on Sony then fine but make valid point.

"sony and nintendo where working to gether untill true and noble sony said, "nope" we are going to screw you and make one our selfs. same for there customer support"

lol..its called google, use it. nintendo pulled out because they were afraid that if they joined with sony and the direction they were going they'd just become shareholders in the company, because sony's ideas were to innovative...OMG a disk based game....that'll never work...too expensive...errr nintendo missed there shot huh. so if you want to bad mouth then make some good points. By the way Xbox 360 is a hunk of sh*t, they still have 30% RROD after there, new chips, so if your going to defend a system, again STFU until you get your facts straight.

aznfrankie3464d ago

i just wanted to piggy-back with what you said.

you know, if microsoft has so much money, why do their consoles have a significant failure rate with the RRoD? i mean seriously...you would think after 3 years, they would have the hardware configurations down and reliable enough. i mean...is it THAT hard to perfect their system with all that money they got?

i suppose one can say that microsoft specializes in software whereas sony specializes in hardware.

haha...if they combined forces they would make one crazy monster of a console and service.
