MySoti Starts PlayStation Home/Real Life Crossover
PlayStation Home already skirts the boundary of reality, and in some ways, you can even make the inherent fantasy a real...um...reality.
MySoti shirts will soon be ready for purchase in Home, and as an added bonus, MySoti will recreate the shirts you already see in Home, so you can wear 'em around town. Want to design your own? Go for it, and if your design is chosen, you will even see a portion of the profits gained (depending on sales of the shirt, of course). You may be looking at the start of a definite trend; what's next? There's some beautiful property for sale in Home, and maybe we'll start seeing residential architects recreating those virtual spaces for real life use. That may be a bit of stretch, but you never know. Besides, think of all the cool content Home users might be able to create; using the concept of LittleBigPlanet, Sony might want to increase the variety and diversity within Home simply by tapping into the brains of Home participants. We're just looking into the future, but for now, the shirts are a definite start to a real-life/Home crossover.
We know some of you out there fancy yourselves clothes designers. Yeah, just speak up. We know you're out there and we won't make any assumptions.
