There has been plenty of speculation on PlayStation Home
and how it compares and contrasts with Second Life
as a virtual world. Heck, the creative director spoke about it months ago
stating that Second Life
players would probably not find much of interest in PS Home
. Well, Kotaku has stepped in to explore just that subject.
For those not wanting to get too down and dirty with the full tale, Second Life
has much more personal customization. Everything from outfits
to dance moves to land masses
can be user-generated and added to the world. On the other hand, PlayStation Home
allows for minimal add-ons, focusing on creating rich, stable environments - even if that means sacrificing little things like avatar diversity. But with much more content promised, PS Home
may well become a better contender for virtual world time.
