Sony unveils its new 3D universe RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sony is hoping to replicate the success of social networks and Second Life with a feature called Home.

    Playstation 3 gamers will be able to meet, chat and share content with friends inside a 3D universe.

    "It's about community, collaboration and customisation," said Sony's Phil Harrison at the Game Developers Conference, in San Francisco.

    Gamers can buy furniture and clothes, while publishers and retailers are also expected to offer 3D spaces.

    Mr Harrison said the games industry had to learn from the success of the web 2.0 movement

    "We want to start a movement called Game 3.0. It's about emerging entertainment, powered by the audience at the centre of the experience."

    Home is similar to Second Life, the popular 3D universe for PCs and Macs. Gamers can create avatars - online versions of themselves - and buy new clothes and create their own homes.

    Mr Harrison described Home as a 3D social networking service.

    This is not just about Sony brands and Sony games - it's a much wider network of connected spaces

  • The biggest advantage of this concept is to involve a high degree of 3D animation and effects, which sounds very lucrative. This concept is surely worth a try.

  • This is a great idea to let the masses imagine themselves in a whole new world where they can fulfill all those wishes which they may not in the real world. I am quite thrilled by the idea.
