Microsoft: Second Life On XBox Live?

Microsoft's Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Game Studios - Shane Kim - has revealed that, among other things, he doubts that Sony can achieve its online Home network for PlayStation 3; that third-party exclusives are a things of the past; that Windows Live is the most important thing he's working on.

Speaking to Shacknews at a Halo 3 event, Kim let slip he has, "spent some time with the Linden Lab guys [developers of Second Life]. To try to build Second Life on Xbox Live --or YouTube, Facebook, any of those big social networking services and sites--it's a lot of work".

Seems like Sony is going to pull it off. 'HOME' is here to stay.

Black Republican3847d ago

home will be a novelty that wears off quick

gta_cb3847d ago

although i do see HOME as being fun, its not something that will sell loads of PS3s. you need good quality games for that, and yeh they will come, but for now ... your out of luck

that must be MS's motto!

EDIT: @wurwag (below)

hmmm... but i don't think he met them because there's an island there... it just goes two ways from here... if MS comes out with "Home"-like feature for Live, i will be right, if it doesn't come out then, i'll be proven wrong. fair enough?

but i still think they copy!

Saint Sony3847d ago (Edited 3847d ago )

Just for your info, if there is already MS island in second life, do you think they came up with this JUST NOW?.. these things won't happen in 1 week or 2. If you have the exact date when they started to dev this, please tell it.

Xi3847d ago

ever heard of the wingman? how about the hdd in a console?... Maybe you head of sl, garry's mod?

Thats where the ps3 controller came from - microsoft and logitech
thats where the ps3 hdd camefrom - xbox
thats where home came from - linden labs
thats where little big planet gamefrom - garry's mod
Sony is the master at copying, and hyping. Sorry.

gta_cb3847d ago

omg! everyone copies! you think PSN choose to put up there own online network with downloadable games etc on there own?... i bet they looked and LIVE and thought thats good we could offer something like that.
fanboyish comment or just stupid as everyone copies

pshizle3847d ago

sony copied everyone from ms to nintendo to second life nuff said!!!

BitbyDeath3847d ago (Edited 3847d ago )

1.The PS3 controller came from the PS2 controller which came from the PS1 controller. The Xbox controller came from the PS2 controller. Deal with it.

2. I didn't know the Xbox invented the HDD i swear i've seen these things called "Computers" that use the exact same thing!

3.Home came from Second Life, which came from Sims 2, which came from Sims, which came from likely a billion other things, Big Brother? It's innovated it's not the same thing and the goals are not the same either. You might as well say Halo copied everything off Wolfenstein 3D.

4. Same goes for Little Big Planet, read point 3.

We'll have to see how this plays out.

- When MS said "We can't wait to see Sony pull of a world-wide system launch" - Sony didn't
- When MS said "It's good to have 2 SKUs" - Sony did that too
- When MS said "Rumble is cool" - Sony's bringing it back

Only time will tell;) I hope it rocks because my PS3 is collecting dust at the moment:(

When Sony's Playstation 3 had an HMDI port, microsoft chucked one right in and jacked up the price.

NextGen24Gamer3847d ago

I agree buddy. And in regards to HDMI...Ms always said prior to the 360 original launch that when the market called for HDMI...they would impliment it. They said that prior to the 360 launch and prior to the ps3 launch. When the original 360 launched there were little to NO Tv's with hdmi connections...

I think MS's stratedgy is perfect...and it obviously irritates certain fanboys...I love it. Good Job MS.

gta_cb3847d ago

do you own a PS3 and an Xbox 360?

@ Counter_ACT

well just like EliteGamer said

"in regards to HDMI...Ms always said prior to the 360 original launch that when the market called for HDMI...they would impliment it. They said that prior to the 360 launch and prior to the ps3 launch. When the original 360 launched there were little to NO Tv's with hdmi connections..."

@ EliteGamer
you said

there is one thing i DIDNT like about MS's stratedgy, i dont know if something went wrong, or if they planned it this way, but one thing i thought would have been great is if the 65 chips would have been released when the Elite console came out. now i know they needed to release the Elite so i dont know if the chips got held back, but i feel as though they needed to be in there when the Elite launched =(

other then that, i think MS's stratedgy is quite cool =D

TheMART3847d ago

What is stated in the article, is just that he would think it's hard to get some sort of Second Life on the excisting great Xbox Live network, thus it would be extremely hard to get it on Sony's less quality network that's already there, if not impossible.

It's not at all that they will implement some sort of Second Life on 360. I hope they won't. I am into the game console for playing the games that I like and buy and get them as easy into multi online playing circumstances and features. Not to go walk in a world dance like a moron, and play some arcade games but having no unified friendlist, not playing co-op on the newest game like 360 owners can.

I think overall he is very clear on this matter. Home, nice gimmick, good to draw some 'positive' attention to the PS3 again, although they still first have to release it and make all the promisses true.

Lets see: Sony said they would offer something equal as XBL @ PS3 launch. They clearly didn't. Have we seen any game that offers instant jumping in co-op with your friends in the story mode from any game on the PS3 up till now? Have we?

Do you got all the downloadable demo's that the 360 had?

GRAW 2?
Blacksite: Area 51?
Others?

Nope Sony fans you didn't. So it's far, far off the XBL network for sure

AudioRage3847d ago
