Sony's Home still on track, if you count beta


Word around the blogosphere is that Sony’s PS3 version of Second Life, known as Home, was promised to launch in 2008, and it looks like that may be the case, though it might only be in beta.

It’ll be an open beta, meaning anyone with a PS3 and an Internet connection can log on and try it out, though it should be pointed out that they might crash your system or reset your characters at any time.

The question remains: will anyone play it? There are many PS3s around the country, but are PS3 players the same type of gamers who’d spend time in a virtual world like Home?

We’re not sure, but we doubt it While Sony’s said there will be tie ins with certain PS3 titles, we still think this is going to be a very nice party that nobody will go to.
