Sony Unveils “Home”; Kotaku Vindicated

Posted: March 7, 2007 by Kendricke in Uncategorized

Per Reuters:

“Sony Corp. will unveil Wednesday “Home,” an online network for its new PlayStation 3, which supports streaming video and advertising and will host virtual characters in common areas and private rooms.”

What’s astounding to me is that Kotaku was dead on when they posted rumors of this announcement last week.  In fact, it would certainly seem that Sony knew Kotaku was dead on when they threatened to pull all contact from Kotaku if they ran the story.  Sure, Sony eventually made nice with Kotaku, but it still leaves a lot of concerns in my mind regarding the whole drama. 

After all that tempesting in teapots, it would seem that all Kotaku did was to post a rumor about a possible release…a rumor that ended up being pretty close to right on the money.
