Home is a mixture of Second Life and Xbox Live; gamers create an avatar and are given a home in which to keep their virtual possessions and throw virtual parties. Other areas will allow you to socialize, play simple parlor games, or set up multiplayer sessions of PS3 games.

Sony has provided some details regarding the game spaces that will be available at launch. "For users in North America, Sony Computer Entertainment America (SCEA) will launch game-themed, high-definition virtual environments, including the Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Far Cry 2 spaces and the soon-to-be-released Warhawk, Resistance, Guitar Hero, and SOCOM spaces," the company stated. "In these environments, users will discuss specific games, plan strategies, and access content and clues that will enhance their gaming experience."   [Comments...]
