It debuted at TGS 2009 if I am not mistaken.

Sony should rather just make Home available for PSP users and allow PSP users to interact with PS3 users (thus possibly increasing the usage of the app).

But, keep the animation feel for the PSP version (easier to process the graphics I assume)

Its the inevitable fate for any console based network.

Its why i love PC.

A dacade later both the games i love CS1.6 & Warcraft 3 still going strong. With no threat of anyone taking them down.

Good news is Blizzard is good to their customers, bad thing is Activision is in the mix.
