Sony: Home focused on games, not a social network

During the Develop in Brighton conference, SCEE's Darren Cairns and Liam Wickham reiterated the purpose of PlayStation Home, chiefly how its intentions are focused on providing a 3D representation of the PlayStation community.

"Home is not a social network - it's focused on games," said Cairns and Wickham. "It's a visual representation of the PlayStation community."

With the heart of Home being a system for users to meet friends and create parties to launch into games, Sony wants people to differentiate Home from social networking "games" like Second Life. Sure, the options to create and customize a 3D avatar or use your interior design skills to pimp out your pad are present, but the main focus is to be on games.
