Sony Home: Second Life except with the PS3

In case you haven't heard, there have been various rumors about some kind of PS3 network. Sony has finally let out some details as to what this Home thing is. Basically, take Second Life, stick it on the PS3, add cops, and make everything cost something. Every PS3 owner will have their own house, with various forms of decorations. PS3 owners can then make/maintain their avatar, walk around public places, and visit other PS3 owner's houses. They can communicate with other people via various chat clients (instant messaging and voice chat clients are feasible). Sony Home will allow users to block other users, if they must, and also has police to watch over this community. All the goodies in the game need to be bought with some form of points, which can be acquired either through gaming or actually buying them (sound like Xbox Live points, anyone?). This service is available for anyone with a PS3, all they have to do is register in the online community.Source: Reg Hardware

Yeah, sorta like moderators on TPU. They aren't REAL cops, but they watch over people as if they were cops in that pretend world.

And no I'm not a real cop either :p.

Before you can use it you'll probably have to agree to a licence agreement where you sign away all your rights.... always happens then people moan when they don't read these things
