The PS3 had a rough start, but things are beginning to look good this year as Sony has announced over 15 exclusive titles for the system by years end. On top of that their Home online service is gearing up to what could be a revolution in online interactivity.
"When Kutaragi was designing the PlayStation 3, his biggest failing was that he (unlike Microsoft) did not seem to understand the importance of a robust and compelling online service to the 21st-century gamer. The version of the PlayStation Network that made its debut alongside the PS3 felt clunky, tacked-on and a far cry from Microsoft's sleek, powerful Xbox Live service.
Sony, however, has an ace in the hole, called Home, a three-dimensional virtual world that will be available later this year to online PS3 users. Home functions as a meeting space and customizable virtual identity, sort of like Second Life meets MySpace."
