    Sony will launch its much-anticipated virtual world, Home, for the PlayStation 3 on Dec. 11. The service will still be in beta testing but it will now be freely available to all 16 million-plus PS 3 users.

    The Home experience, which resembles Linden Lab’s Second Life, is meant to draw all sorts of new users together into the world of the PS 3 and to unite users in a social network where they can talk about, buy and play games together....

    ...While Home could have been many things, Sony decided to focus the content around playing games and the culture around them, said Jack Buser, director of Home for the U.S. game division. The price is free for PS 3 owners. It is the flagship piece of the PlayStation Network, which already has 15 million members from the PS 3 and PlayStation Portable fan base. Home will let players collect trophies, decorate virtual rooms, hang out in game-related bars such as one for the games Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune, and Far Cry 2. More game spaces are coming. You can also create your own nightclub.

    I'm so damn excited it's kinda sad to be honest. I've been wanting it since 2006.

    It was cool for about 10 mins but it seems pretty lame. Maybe that's just because I'm old.

    Playing pool was kind of fun. And watching all the guys trying to pick up girls was entertaining.
