San Francisco (CA) – It has become more difficult for Sony to make its case for its Playstation game console as the competition from Nintendo and Wii is heating up. At GDC, the company revealed several aggressive approaches to make the PS3 more attractive, including a “next-generation” 3D user community.
The company promises Home to include a “sleek, modern environment” that integrates common areas, custom spaces dedicated to specific games and personal apartments. Each user is assigned an apartment, which can be personalized for example with furniture. Users can also invite others to join them “as they show off their own style,” Sony said.
Home will go into a closed beta test this spring.
