Sony’s ‘Home’, a ‘SecondLife’ on steroids has been delayed until 2008. It was originally due to launch Fall ’07 after being in an invite only beta for several months. Sony has decided to delay it’s launch for quality reasons.
Home is expected to be the PS3’s HD, multiplayer, virtual-world, online community, which is fully integrated into the PS3. This will allow users to browse a virtual world and interact with other online users, but also in addition allow users to publicize and browse their game achievements like a virtual trophy room, and interactively browse and share their multimedia content hosted on their console, as well as participate in online multiplayer games hosted within the Home virtual world.
