Game 3.0???

http://www.playfuls.com/news_06448_Web_20_Is_Old_News_Sony_Gives_You_Game_30.html

Thanks to Joe B for sharing this on a listserv that I receive. This is the next step in gaming software. Here's a quote from the article:

"The power of consumer creativity via Game 3.0 leverages trends such as online collaboration and user-generated content with the goal of creating an engaging new experience in interactive entertainment and new streams for creative game development. In contrast to the current game development and publishing paradigm, Game 3.0 reverses the trend of “pushing” content dictated solely by the developer, and puts the spotlight back on the consumer, encouraging them to become part of the game creation process. What is different is how this can be applied to an even broader degree creating new business models that expand the audiences and scope of interactive entertainment."

And, "
The new service, 'Home', puts users into a real-time, networked 3D community, where they can interact, join online games, communicate, share content and even build and show off their own personal spaces. Home will be available this fall as a free download from the PS3 Store."

Think about the possibilities! Project this out another 5 years. Ten years! Holy mackerel!

Also think about this, "Where will all this stuff be stored?" Do you have stock in companies that build hard drives?
