(PrisonPlanet)-Sony is preparing to unveil a simulated reality world in which Playstation gamers can create a new life for themselves, complete with their own apartment, friends, movies, shopping and entertainment, bringing the reality of an actual matrix a step closer.
"Sony has unveiled plans for its own virtual universe for the PlayStation 3 where users will be able to socialise, shop and even go to the movies -- all without setting foot outside in the real world. The service -- a kind of MySpace meets Linden Lab's Second Life meets the video-sharing site YouTube -- will become available for PS3 users worldwide in late 2007, Sony announced in a statement available here Thursday," reports AFP.
(CNN)-Sony: No place like 'Home' for PS3 gamers SAN FRANCISCO, California (Reuters) -- Sony Corp. will unveil Wednesday "Home," an online network for its new PlayStation 3, which supports streaming video and advertising and will host virtual characters in common areas and private rooms.
Sony also will preview "LittleBigPlanet" -- a game where users play, create and share what they build with other worldwide PS3 users -- at the Game Developers Conference this week in San Francisco.
A full-featured sample of "LittleBigPlanet" is slated for release on the PlayStation Network this fall, with a full version expected in early 2008. Game pricing will be announced at a later date.
Sony's new projects, incorporate elements from a crop of innovative Web sites, including Second Life, a virtual reality site where players create and own content, from representations of themselves to homes and businesses; Google Inc.'s video-sharing site YouTube; and News Corp.'s MySpace, a wildly popular site where users create profiles and share everything from music to photos.

Come on, while the Home idea is anything but original, comparing it to making Miis on the Wii is like comparing the statue of David to a barbie doll. I may very no interest in Home, but it's light years ahead of the Miis.
