Summary: Sony's Playstation Home feature on the PS3 console is a virtual online world, a bit like Second Life and is a great idea in theory. However, I don't feel that enough has been done with it and the whole concept seems to lack any depth on Sony's part. The one thing I found very annoying about Playstation Home is the fact that you have to download and install different parts seperately.
Pros: Playing pool or bowling
Cons: downloading and installing, not much to do there
Summary: Well this is meant to be a social hub, for a start, noone actually speaks to each other. Personally i don't see the point in this program, theres not much to do, other than play many pointless mini-games in the attempt to beat people who have played the game for countless months before you. The graphics are fairly amazing, although considering its not in a proper game, its a bit of a letdown, good graphics and a bad game.
Pros: Its got good graphics
Cons: A poor community, nothing to keep you entertained, items cost a lot of real money for anything good.
Summary: Home was supposed to be one of the main reasons to buy a PS3, sadly it has taken such a long time to come out, still at least they have perfected it - WRONG... Firstly 'Home' is an open virtual reality world (much like second life) you get to create your own avatar right down to customized body shape, picking your eye, hair, facial features as well as a variety of clothing and accessories. You also get your own pad which can be fully decorated.
Pros: great graphics, virtual community
Cons: lack of things to do, feels quite empty and not tha much fun
Summary: I find it quite boring. It has/had lots of potential....but it comes off as slow and boring. Plus there are too many kids that do stupid stuff. Besides, there is something spooky about paying money for fake clothes and furniture and meeting people in a fake world.
