Sony Playstation Home
PlayStation Home finally opened worldwide on Thursday, December 11, 2008 after almost 2 years of delays. Playstation Home is a virtual world, similar to Second Life, for the gaming community. It is also free of charge.
We have a Playstation 3 (bought in Japan as I had blogged about earlier this year) so I’ll have to check this out soon.
The full news story can be found on Japan Today.
Sony was also in the news earlier this week when it announced that it was trimming 4% of its work force, or 8,000 jobs, as the global downturn erodes profits, with another 8,000 temporary jobs cut worldwide.
