    PlayStation 3 goes Home
    New virtual world opens to all PS3 owners


    Eat your heart out, New Xbox Experience. Tomorrow, all Playstation 3 owners will get a chance to experience Sony's own answer to online socializing and game playing: a virtual world called Home.

    There's no charge for the new feature, which will come in the form of a multi-gigabyte download that'll update the firmware of PS3s around the world. Once applied, the first step for new Home residents is to design an avatar, a process that's already necessary on the Xbox 360 and Wii, but one that will be new to many PS3-only gamers. Sony's avatar system, though, allows for considerably more realism and detail than either of its competitors.

    Once you're in Home's world, you can chat with friends, set up multiplayer gaming sessions, listen to streaming music, watch movies, and play minigames. It'll be a familiar layout to anyone who's played with other virtual worlds like World of Warcraft, Runescape, or even Second Life, the anything-goes social world that Home most resembles. Sony has already lined up an impressive range of partners -- including Red Bull, Diesel, and Paramount Pictures -- who'll be offering sponsored content inside Home.

    On the official PlayStation blog, Home director Jack Buser gives some useful advice from getting the most out of your new online life.

    "We have a tutorial built in that will get you started with the controls, as well as help menus for you to reference in the Menu Pad. If you don't have a USB keyboard or Bluetooth headset paired with your PlayStation 3, now is the time to do so -- either option will allow you to easily talk and meet everyone," he said in a post today.

    Officially, Sony's calling the much-delayed launch an "open beta," which means they're pretty sure it works, but if you break it, don't bother suing.

    just got done playing HOME, so far Ive noticed You have your own living space, when you leave your place you will be in the Central area where you can go to the bowling ally (which has Bowling, Pool, and Arcade games all which you can play for free) , Mall (different stores clothing furniture for your place all cost real money) movie theater (Shows trailers and music videos) there is a place where you can listen to music with other people and dance if you like in the middle of the central square there is a flying saucer game which you can play for free also.

    Thats it for now at least what Ive explored Oh Blue tooth headsets work there also Ive heard people talking like on vent
