Submission + - PS3 to get "Trophies"

Pojut writes: "It appears Sony is not only copying Nintendo, but Microsoft as well this time...Gamespot is reporting from the GDC that Sony is going to be implementing a trophy system for it's players. Not only is this going to be avatar-based (Nintendo), but players will get a literal trophy room that displays their accomplishments in games (Microsoft...with the addition of something other than points, of course.) It will also include almost a "Second Life Lite" kind of thing, with various meeting places and such.

From the article:

At a press event last night in San Francisco, Sony Worldwide studios president Phil Harrison unveiled Home, a new online service for the PlayStation 3. Besides avatar-based social networking, Home will sport three-dimensional meeting places, movie theaters, and minigame halls replete with pool and bowling. The service will also give gamers virtual apartments that PS3 owners can decorate with furniture, wallpaper, and Sony-branded electronics.

Do not simplify the design of a program if a way can be found to make it complex and wonderful.
