The online virtual world called "Home", allows PS3 users to interact, communicate, join online games, shop, share private content and even build and show off their own personal spaces to others in real time
Home is a real-time 3D, networked community that serves as a meeting place for PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) users from around the world, where they can interact, communicate, join online games, shop, share content and even build their own personal spaces.
Home will be available as a free download from the PLAYSTATION Store and will launch directly from the PS3 system's Home Menu.
The finished version of Home for the PlayStation 3 is expected in the fall, and a full beta in April, but there's something to look at now.
Sony is expected to launch music, movie and TV services through its PlayStation Network, and “Home” seems like one way to reach out to this community. The movie theater in “Home” features trailers for Blu-ray Disc movies, but there’s no reason a full feature couldn’t be streamed through this avenue.
