After Sony announced PS3 Home, Nintendo deems the service “an example of Sony's 'Mii-too' approach.” According to a story on Computerandvideogames.com Nintendo’s Miyamoto says Nintendo considered the approach Sony took years ago and rejected it.

Nintendo has a similar but much simpler system to PS3 Home called Mii that lets users create carton like avatars and save them to the Wii internal memory. The avatars can be imported into video games and shared online.While it is simpler than PS3 Home Nintendo is happy with their Mii system stating that “Miis have become a cultural phenomenon in their own right, appealing well beyond the traditional core gamer audience, and the process of populating them across the Wii universe is just beginning.” Story via Computerandvideogames.com, image via Nintendo.
