Sony's New Second Life Clone

Check out Home, from Sony. (The article calls it "Third Life" which is misleading at best.)

Briefly, it's like Second Life, without the user-made content, without creation tools, but with voice, great HD graphics, a free house, and doubling as a lobby to access multiplayer games. PS3 only.

It's not out yet, and while the video looks great, I have to wonder if people will actually choose to visit it as an end in itself. There's certainly not much scope for a thriving economy without third-party development. I'd like to think the graphics provide a sneak peek at Second Life v3, though.

It's nothing like SL... SL has a whole world for you to explore, while in home, you are limited to... get this, 4 places.

The loading times are horrible, and you can't do even 1% of what you can in SL...

well of course, this is a console version of a computer mmorpg. besides, it looks more like Keneva, (another crappy SL clone) then Second Life.
