Eurogamer: PlayStation Home Feature

One of the stranger things about PlayStation Home - and there are a great many strange things about PlayStation Home - is the experience of being in a virtual world without the slightest hint of fantasy about it.

So everyone looks like a 20-something male in bland, high street casual fashion, because that's who everyone actually is.

How Eurogamer got a spot inside home? I appreciate their honest review despite working closely with Sony on some of it. But I'm just curious in general about how a gaming site would get involved in the Home content, above and beyond simply making clubs.

how does one travel to different regions? I have been in the world map and can see an uncharted space but I would like to go to japan home or uk home.

Eurogamer: "A particularly glaring omission is the ability to whisper"

Not being able to IM or whisper to somebody in Home is a good thing. I dislike that feature in Second Life. It can be quite intrusive and sometimes just plain creepy.
