    This is an article about a rumor about PlayStation Home. Users of PS3 can create 3d avatars. The avatar gets a room. Everything a user gets an achievement or beats a game, he/she gets something to decorate the room. Doesn't sound too bad, even if it sounds like Sony copied Nintendo (which is debateable).

    Now here's the clincher:

    Wow, smart move Sony. Bravo. Way to punish a website for exercising its freedom of the press. For those who wonder why I boycott the PS3, this is the reason. And really, I can't see how even Sony fanboys can side with Sony on this one.

    They were warned and went ahead with it anyway. I guess im missing the point? Who cares if they blackball them? They shouldnt have published the story. Even though they had every right to, they knew they would hurt a business relationship and did it anyway.

    This is so pathetic...I swear they must have not a single creative ounce within their brains. Its not enough to copy Nintendo's revolutionary controller scheme they are now going to make Playstation "avatars". I hope Sony rots in hell for this. Piece of ****.

    Yeah what the hell? they can't be unique or original? noo they have to copy every damn thing that is getting attention and it just makes me really mad that it was Nintendo they copied! Sony and Playstation 3 should indeed rot in hell for all eternity

    Ok, now that's taking it too far. It's not even close to a complete rip-off. Settle down, Big N fanboy.

    Uhh its close enough. Basically Sony saw the fasicination with Miis and decided they would "create" a "brand new avatar" system. Please what a load of bullsh*t. I'm glad Sony keeps making these idiotic mistakes even they piss me off so badly. It just proves over and over again why Nintendo and Microsoft are the better companies. They actually can create something new and listen to their customers. Just reading that letter makes me sick to my stomach.

    Same here, and it's hard to believe it's a Japanese console but of course it's influenced by alot of Unitedstatians.

    It's funny that you say it's a better idea, seeing as the idea was all Nintendo's. All Sony did was add 3-d and a room, trying to be original. And you said the Mii is stupid...but isn't this avatar the same thing as a Mii? So basically your contradicting your self.

    uh...first off, I believe the term is "Americans", and secondly, that's because the United States provides a great portion of customers for countless companies, obviously including Sony.

    I think that too, all though taking achievements, one of XBox 360's best things, is taking it a step to far..
    hopefully it will be dumbed down, like how ps3s motion sensing was to the wii's

    There's obviously something wrong with this comment, because this is the 4th post that's quoted you thinking you're an ass....Listen, you've been cornered and you're at gunpoint, give up.

    Microsoft is a great company (never even owned a Microsoft console, so i'm not biased). Nintendo is an awesome company (owned plenty of Nintendo consoles, still not biased). PS3 is the best....failure.

    Microsoft = tries

    Nintendo = does

    Sony= don't

    Sony constantly rips off of other company's ideas, then tries to make it "Sony Original". It's just tweaking on the idea of the other company, and barely tweaking at that. Deal with the facts.

    And if you same i'm a Nintendo fanboy (or any fanboy), you're horribly wrong sir.

    well you did say Microsoft = tries
    nintendo = does

    and saying youve owned plenty of ninty consoles would make you more biased
    and saying youve owned no M$ consoles would explain why you say: tries
    making your conclusions...
    biased

    Actually, i'm not biased. I've read up on all the consoles, played on two (360 and Wii). I said "tries" because I don't think they're as innovative in the ways that Nintendo are. PS3 is just not innovative. They were, however, completely successful at making a computer, congrats to em. :)
