    Good news for the PlayStation camp, full details of Sony's PlayStation Home have been revealed, and it ain't no slacker. Alongside those avatars and achievements we heard about earlier, the "service" seems to be a new-gen Second Life killer, with public hangouts, personal apartments (to show off those fancy prizes you've been racking up in recent frag fests) and voice chat. The seeming-MMO even includes casual games such as pool, bowling and arcade machines embedded into the world, but at any time you can invite a fellow resident to join in on any PlayStation Network-capable game. As for user-generated content, PS Home allows you to hang your own pictures on your apartment walls and share videos with friends. You can of course dress up your avatar in assorted virtual clothings -- for a price -- all while enjoying "dynamic advertising" of some sort. A large scale beta goes live in April, with the full product to be launched this fall. Make sure to hit up the read link for a gallery of the beautiful scenery and idiotic conversations you too can be enjoying in a few months.

    That is awesome! A bit gimmick'ish but it definitely looks interesting. Far better than just screens with tabs.
    Putting your own pictures up wont last long at all though.

    Good job to sony. Maybe they aren't done just yet.

    Second Life in high def LOL. You can watch and listen to media from your hard drive on virtual screens?!? That's some insane bandwidth! How much is this gonna cost me per month?

    online is, but all these extras I'm sure will have a price tag. If not, that'd be sweet. Microsoft is all about charging, and I'm surprised the demos are free.

    Let's say that you had a movie that you were going to show to all of your "Home" friends on your virtual tv. Would you think that the MPAA would get a little mad with that? Also, streaming thousands of videos to virtual tvs in Home would take up some major bandwidth. I can see that costing an extra fee. We wouldn't want to "clog the tubes." :grrhee:
