More info on the PS3 "Home" Rumor

An inside source close to Sony made a post on the IGN boards a few weeks ago talking about a new feature that Sony would be implementing. At the moment the feature is dubbed "Home", and Sony has even secured a patent and logo for the name. The poster commented that this new Home feature would create a virtual home located in a virtual town, populated by the people on your buddy. Your buddies can go inside your house when your PS3 is online, and you can go inside their house.

first great games like resistance,vf5,nba 2k7 and so on.then it's downloads like making ps2 run better on ps3, an enhanced tekken 5(just got it) and flow,and if true,a cool new feature.

i was thinking the other day that something like 3dna(3d desktop on pc would be cool)and if true......BUUUUUUYYYAAAAAAAAUU UHHHHHH!!!

I think this will go a long way to get people more excited about the psn community. I hope it works out well for them. Having multiple people in one house chatting sounds like it could be pretty cool. The Wii has already proven that people really get a kick out of creating their own lil avatar character, I think this is a step in the right direction for Sony.

BTW I am not calling Sony copycats. Any one of the three console manufacturers could be called that for one reason or another. There's nothing wrong with copying another company anyway so long as they can add their own little personal touches to it. It's how most other businesses work.

If this rumor is true, then this may be one excellent feature to look forward to. Instead of having the standard screen name and members section, now people can roam around within the virtual world.

Juno(an ISP company) once had something very similar to this. They had a virtual instant messaging system that allowed a members to create their virtual character and roam around to chat with other members.

It was suppose to be their big and special innovation to battle AOL with. Now Juno and AOL are partners and I think that feature might be long gone. I haven't used Juno since '99.
