Sony delays PS3 virtual world Home - again

"Sony has pushed back the release of Home, the PlayStation 3's answer to Second Life, yet again, pending 'refinements' it believes it needs to make to the service."

Better than releasing a pile of junk to be honest. I'd much rather have someone actually get things right instead of just shipping with a "that'll do" mentality.

I guess I'm a bit behind on my PS3 reading, I wasn't even aware of Home, much less that it has been delayed. I'm pretty much limited to slapping in a game or a movie and forgetting about the day with my PS3. My online play is still done with the PC.

Same here...But have they seen the state of my virtual furniture! I'm using an old bicycle seat stuck in the floor as a sofa!

(sorry I'm still stuck on the idea that they intend to sell virtual furniture, they must have researched this! They must have some reason to think that people will trade real money for make believe furniture....

I realize we all pay real money to have make believe adventures...but furniture? ":O}

Honestly, I think that home is supposed to appeal to a very specific demographic. Seems to me that it'll appeal most to people who are very casual gamers or people who otherwise wouldn't play games. I've been following the Home news a little bit, but I don't think I care too much one way or the other when it's released.
