I'm gonna wait until the initial rush subsides and there are more games out. (And until I next do a couple of locum shifts...!) But will definitely be getting one at some stage.

both the links point to the same page... is that intentional .. i mean do i have to look at the negative bits on the same page.. or was the bad ad meant to be on some other page ?

one other thing.. i noticed the PSP in the picture galleries for Home.. and i had read someplace that u cud use ur psp to actually either navigate or customise Home... now i cant find that damn article. but if u come across it, pls post it..

complete plagarism [where did i hear that term being used???] from another site:

It looks like Sony has done their homework in the mmo genre. They have plans to institute an auction within Home so as to avoid problems that World of Warcraft has faced. Also accessibility is being addressed with future plans of Home being integrated into cellular phones and the Sony PSP.

Here are some interesting questions from both articles:

Press Release

* Q: How many Home avatars can I have?

A: The current plan is for each user to have one avatar. Home is the

human face of PLAYSTATION Network (PSN), and your Home avatar

is how you represent yourself. However, it will be possible to change

your appearance, through customising your character and adding

accessories, so you’ll be able to constantly re-invent yourself should

you so desire.

* Q: What is the policy on acceptable behaviour?

A: Within our public spaces, Home follows the same rules and guidelines

as the PLAYSTATION Network with regard to age stipulations and

acceptable behaviour. Home uses all the same age controls as the

PS3 System Software. Private spaces will not be monitored unless

abuses or violations to our policies are reported by a user.

* Q: How much control will we have over what people get up to in their

private spaces?

A: Our policy is not to actively police private areas, and a user cannot be

invited to another user’s private space until they have accepted an

invitation to be on their buddy list. However, the complaints process will

still operate in these private spaces, so if people feel that they have

been subjected to inappropriate behaviour while in someone’s private

space, they will be able to lodge a complaint by the usual process.

Third Party Developers

* Q: What is the timeline for rollout?

A. Closed Beta (appx. 15,000 users): April - August

Open Beta (appx. 50,000 users): August - October

Service Live (50,000+): October

* Q: How do I win Trophies?

A. Players will be able to win Home Trophies when they play games that support the Home Trophy system. publishers and developers will be able to support Trophies by building them into their games' architecture. Further information on how to develop trophies within games will be available soon.

* Q: When can users have / manage their own spaces?

A. Every user has a private apartment space that users can modify and change over time. The basic apartment is free and will offer users lots of options for customization and personalization. In the future we will provide tools that will enable users to have an even greater ability to create their own Home spaces and content.

* Q: When can I start to develop for Home?

A. You can register your interest to develop for the Home platform immediately at http://home.scedev.net

* Q: Is Home a PS3 specific service? Will users be able to access Home through other devices?

A. Initially Home will only be accessible via that PLAYSTATION®3, although over time our intention is to enable users to interface certain Home features and services via other networked devices such as PlayStation®Portable (PSP®) and mobile phones.

* Q: Will we be able to sell products (other than Home assets) online?

A. Eventually Home will not only support the merchandising of virtual assets, but also will provide cross-promotional opportunities for selling physical goods online.

* Q: How large is the download?

A. We're aiming for the initial download to be under 500MB. Subsequent

downloads will hopefully integrate a streaming method that makes them

negligible.

* Q: Will I be able to trade items that I have bought or won with other Home users?

A. Ultimately, an auction service will be implemented that will allow users to sell their Home assets and user-created content to other users.

* Q: In terms of user's names are they exclusive and different from their network ID. E.g. PSN account = PeterE / Home name = Tarzan123?

A. Your Home user name will be the same as your PSN account ID.

* Q: Can I log on to Home in addition to someone else from one PS3? E.g. at my friends and I want to log on...

A. This is technically quite an advanced problem. It effectively means logging in to two PSN accounts at the same time from one machine, which makes it unlikely.

* Q: Can I get media for my apartment from other devices such as PC?

A. Not yet; we are working on enabling this feature which is contingent upon firmware functionality.

* Q. How will sharing media work within the private space? Will users be able to distribute content?

A. Users will not be able to broadcast their media to people outside their private space, but they will be able to show their own media to invited guests. We have deliberately chosen not to allow users to 'give

A. Users will not be able to broadcast their media to people outside their private space, but they will be able to show their own media to invited guests. We have deliberately chosen not to allow users to 'give' media to other users as this opens up serious risks of piracy and sharing of illegal content.

And solodoc -- on that link -- as bachchan would say - is bar chor diya :)

Two neat ps3 maps :

one showing current users on the globe : http://ps3map.blogspot.com/ like the comment form the guy in icelan...

and another showing places where ps3 is being sold - dont think this one is correct though..
