    The thing I don’t like about console games is that they require my complete attention. Sometimes I bang virtual skins on Rock Band and it has my undivided attention (or I lose), but most of the time, I like having a lot of things going on at once. Console games just want too much out of me. While I like decorating stuff as much as anyone — I like my home in Gorowyn — just having a game where all you do is furnish your home with Sony appliances doesn’t sound all that compelling.

    Console games haven’t yet figured out how to fit themselves into my lifestyle. I wish they would. I liked them back in the day.

    The link sends you to a talk this guy gave about how modern life is becoming ever more full, and we’re beginning to learn how to live life now that network television has lost its power over us.

    Well, there’s quite a bit more to it then just the furnishing (it’s just what I focus on) such as arcade games, a trophy hall to present your gaming accomplishments (since a lot of PS3 games are online these days) restaurants and museums to hang out where your screen shots become your ‘pictures’ on the walls that others can view. It’s not really a ‘game’ in my eyes, so much as it is a social network for people to hang out in / meet other gamers. The other half is already talking about how a few of his guild mates own a PS3 and have added him to their friends list. This way they can all meet up some place before playing whatever game it is they’re all going to be playing, and have an online avatar to do so with.

    Plus being able to watch someone else’ HDD through this means just seems cool to me.

    Home definately looks cool. It basically seems like Sims3, myspace, facebook all rolled into one.

    If i had a PS3, and if I had time to console game (I will, when my son is old enough to play!) then I would definately get Home.
