PlayStation Home - The Deep Throat Report

In Sony's move to bolster the success of its online presence with the PlayStation 3, it decided not to simply copy Xbox Live's Achievement Point or GamerCard system, but rather take the online space in a new direction with PlayStation Home. The concept is simple: You log in, create a character and roam about the world, interacting with other users and various entertainment outlets (movie screens, arcade games, etc.)

While the concept is simple, the implementation is anything but that, and so a short while back Sony opened up PlayStation Home to a select group of beta testers. The number of testers is small and currently only taking place in Europe, keeping the flow of inside information to a minimum.

Though IGN doesn't have direct access to it themselves outside of controlled event showings, one lucky insider (who shall remain anonymous for fear of losing his or her access to the beta), gave them just that.

The story is too old to be commented.

Europe only? I'm fairly certain I'm in the HOME Beta, and also sure I live in Virginia. They need to get their facts straightened out.

"it decided not to simply copy Xbox Live's Achievement Point or GamerCard system,"

What an idiotic article.

Sony's Home online service began it's development all the way back in the early PS2 days. LONG before Microsoft started their crappy bilk Xbots out of 50 bucks a year crap.

What is amazing about Home is Sony has been talking PUBLICLY about it for years and people either too stupid to have paid attention or are simply acting stupid to try to spout BS about 'Sony is copying'.

Hey you stupid Xbots, the PS2 project was started back in 1997...

Idiots.
