Playstation HOME

Playstation HOME a new game that will be released sometime this fall on the playstation 3 has been the object of my curiousity for the past few days. I'm not really a big fan of the sim games mostly because the graphics aren't that interesting and something about it just screams waste of time, but this new-to-be-released game is definetely really interesting. The game apparently will feature with public hangouts, personal apartments (to show off those fancy prizes you've been racking up in recent frag fests) and voice chat. It will also include 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.
