Virgins AWOMO service will make PS3 Home look prehistoric

The boss of Virgin's new digital download site A World Of My Own (AWOMO) believes that the venture can outclass Sony's much-lauded PS3 Home project. Users were invited to register for the Beta of the site this week.

And now AWOMO?creator Games Domain International has told MCV that the download speed of the site will put next-gen consoles to shame – and that it can reach half a million subscribers this year.

"We have had a few emails from people who have already registered and are impressed that we seem to have pulled off a 'me too' model of PS3 Home for PC. But they will have to wait and see how good this will get. In terms of download speed, Home is very much what we have got used to in the 21st Century. AWOMO will make that look prehistoric."

Who cares and why is this news? I'm sure that you can't instantly jump into a multiplayer game from this virgin's AWOMO. Stop comparing things that aren't even available to the public yet!

gta_cb3524d ago

your having a laugh right?!

hahaha since when has there not been news about comparing stuff which isnt even available yet? yet, there is always comparisons on games which arnt even same style art, same gameplay etc so yeh dont expect it to stop.

HOME is a community service that's all. Its a game-service, not a game
in itself. Yes you can play a great number of arcade games, snooker
and maybe bowling it there but its just not about competition. So,
HOME's appeal just can not be denied as a full-on "next-gen online"
service.

HOME's edge will be Sony's great influence on market and their
inter-relations with all the movie studios and game-devs. This means
exclusive and unbreakable chain of content supply. I don't see Virgin
getting all that support and attenion. Virgin's world might kill
second-life but HOME is an integration and extention of PS3 itself !!!

So don't be so quick to count them out, the bad part for sony competing with this new IP is anyone who was planning to get a ps3 just for the community aspect of it will consider this over the ps3 especially if virgins hype machine go full force
