Sponge Interviews Sony's Phil Harrison - Beyond Home

What about uploading porn...?

There was no doubt who the star of the show at GDC was: Sony Computer Entertainment's President, Worldwide Studios, Phil Harrison. Harrison managed to blitz a goodly part of the generally-held disappointment and even downright animosity meted out to the botched PS3 launch by unveiling Second Life-like 3D avatar-based online service Home and the innovative user-generated content game LittleBigPlanet.

Directly after Shigeru Miyamoto's keynote – slightly later than planned, as Harrison was given a seat in the front row for Miyamoto's rather lacklustre address, then trapped in crowds of Nintendo-lovers for a while afterwards – Sponge managed to catch up with Harrison on the Sony stand, for an interview in which they could drill down a bit deeper into Home (which was indeed running on a PS3 in the interview room, and Harrison launched it several times during the interview to illustrate different points) and LittleBigPlanet. This is what he said...

The story is too old to be commented.

COol interview.

"users will be able to extend their visual experience to customise their apartment through buying items from the store, by being given items through playing PlayStation 3 disk-based games or through items that we ourselves donate into the community." - not everything is micro-transactions. Trophies extend your home:P

LBP: "We’ve got some interesting ideas on that which we’ll share a little bit later, but we hope that star creators will be recognised and rewarded for their efforts." - I want to be rewarded!

home is going to be great.
the possiblities are endless.

i`d be nice to have a casino in HOME where you can gamble for ps store points, or place wagers on pool, or online races

Since the announcement of Home there is alot that can be expanded on in the future with it. Phil said that so many people have come up to him after the announcement with ideas of what could be done that its simply amazing that this has spawned so many creative ideas that I am sure we will see implemented beyond what has been announced. Its only the beginning!
