Sony's Second Life-esque project for the PS3, "Home", has been getting as many questions as it has buzz. Gamers can now fully understand what's going to be in the online service via a PDF file that is aimed at third-party developers.
For example, it specifies that the closed beta beginning next month will only be open to about 15,000 users. It also details how payments will be handled for virtual content.There's a bunch of information in the file that was not necessarily made clear during Phil Harrison's impressive keynote at last week's GDC conference(see Playstation Home Video), like this little nugget:
"Currently Home is not a persistent world, so when you leave Home, all of your possessions go with you. For instance, it is not currently possible for other users to visit your apartment while you’re not there. We are working on the persistent aspect of Home, and expect to implement it in the long term."
