PlayStation Home
Entertainment | Games | On-off

While everyone has been busy calling the PS3 a loser, Sony has been busy working on something else. PlayStation Home (Free; 2007) is an online world where you control your avatar to interact with other gamers, join online games, shop, share content, and even show off your personal spaces. Think Second Life mixed with the Sims mixed with Xbox Live and you've got the idea. Is this the next generation of online console gaming? Perhaps, but it sure is another enticing reason to pick up a PS3.

We got to look at the PS3 in depth last night in PC assembly class.

Transalation:

We sat around for four hours, playing video games and watching Aeon Flux with Blue Ray Technology through the projector.

Some interesting things you can do with the PS3:

You can put you own OS on it. I'm not sure what it's compatible with, but the teacher put Linux on his.

Browse the internet and look at porn.

Log onto wu corp and fuck with people, for the sake of fucking with people.

It does a lot more too.

We pointed a few design flaws too, the obvious one was, it needs better air flow. The side was hot enough to melt a candle.

It was released two days ago at the GDC.

Kotaku dropped the rumour and got some flame from Sony. NY times even picked that part up their news about Home.

As you read this Phil Harrison is standing in front of a packed auditorium at the Game Developers Conference unveiling what I think is a pretty damn cool new, free application for the Playstation 3.
Playstation Home is essentially a living world inside your console. It's probably a flawed analogy but think of it as Second Life meets the PS3.
The free service, which will go into beta this April and hit consoles this fall, will become a new menu item in the cross media bar.
When you select it you will be dropped into a virtual world peopled by life-like avatars. From what we saw during a press screening, customization of these avatars is incredibly flexible, allowing you to create something that looks as much like you as you would want.
Home starts you out in a central lobby. You use a virtual PSP in this world to access features, but can also just walk around. The main lobby we saw included dynamic advertising on billboards, games you could just walk up to and play, like bowling or pool and even a mini arcade that featured some cool little arcade titles.
You can communicate with others in the lobby by talking, typing, using motions or pre-written phrases.
After walking around inside this home lobby for a bit, Harrison jumped his avatar to his private apartment.
Brian Crecente
The apartment, and there are lots of different types, look very realistic and can be customized with real-world furniture, wallpaper, picture frames that show images from your harddrive, even televisions that stream your own original video content.
The idea, it seems, is that your apartment will become the nexus of your Playstation 3 experience. It is where you can listen to music, look at pictures, watch video, invite your friends over to talk and even go into multiplayer games together to play as a group.
"This could become your clan heaquarters," Harrison said. "From within home you can launch multiplayer games directly. You can then come back into home afterward and talk about it."
Next Harrison showed a more sophisticated apartment. This one had several levels, an outdoor deck and a much nicer design.
Home will also have other public spaces, like the Home Cinema, a sort of virtual movie theater complete with a large front lobby and separate screening rooms.
It's also possible for companies or publishers to create their own spaces. For instance Electronic Arts could create a space that shows off their current and upcoming games in a virtual world that looks more like a mall than a store.
I think this is going to be one of those features that people didn't realize that wanted until they get it. But I think I'll really have to experience it first hand to decide just how well it works. Brian Crecente

The potentials there but, It's not creative enough.

I don't want to hang out and chat with mother fuckers in a mall. Give me a zoo at least.

Second Life offers much of the same space, only with a engine that's worse.

I think it's the first step. But I don't think it will be the substitute for the easy 2D text exchange. The hassle to just chat is too big now.

Yo, CS! Did you ever get your teacher to look at my thread?

I saw some video of it. It's decent. Very clean, industrial look. It's nice to know that my PS3 Home Me will live in a nicer apartment than I ever will :)

THey ran Linux on PS@ and DC and XBOX before. You should try swapping Hard drives. This could be done by taking same sort of HD with , for the safety of it, the same rpm. It would be instantly recognized, formatted and accepted. Although it is said to be rejected by later version of firmware.
