I wouldn't be surprised to see this scrapped. Does anyone really own a PS3 that doesn't also have a home computer? Why do you need a Second Life type interface to interact with other PS3 gamers?

I think I saw this on a demo PS3 in EB this weekend, but I wondered what in the heck it actually was. What I saw kind of looked cool but I don't think I would have ever used it.



Holy fuck shit motherfucker shit. Read comics. Fuck shit shit fuck shit I sold out when I did my job. Fuck fuck fuck shit fuck. Sorry had to do it....

Revenge of the Sith = one thumb up from me. Fuck shit. I want to tittie fuck your ass.

I notice Mr. Matisic did not post the XBOX 360 burns your house down story, hmmm!

I think they're going to end up finishing it up, because they've spent too much money/time on it not to do it. Even if they end up disavowing it within six months.

You don't need a Second Life interface, but PS3 games need something to allow you to know your friends are logged when you're playing a game - you can only see that information now when you're in the PS3 Main Menu screens.

But no one's buying a PS3 for Home and no one's putting off buying it because it's being delayed. It's really going to have to be free for it to reach the level of audience that'd make it worthwhile, so I figure it's a bonus if it ever shows up. It's more frustrating if they're throwing resources at this that could be used in better ways.

Wow, I did not see that 360 story actually. How can a company that big be unable to make proper power cords after all these years? I remember having to replace the cord on my original xbox for similar reasons.

I'm sure someone said something in a planning meeting that used the phrases: "player interaction", "virtual world", "on-line store" and completely failed to include, "useful interface", "seamless integration", and "user orientated".

I'm having flashbacks of trying to explain why a submarine should have controls like a car instead of 4 joysticks... "Because your average arcade visitor hasn't flown a jet plane!"
