Submission + - Sony Details Home, Microsoft Responds

fistfullast33l writes: "Via PS3Fanboy/Joystiq, Sony has released a new PDF document detailing for developers what to expect with Home. The bombshell being dropped is that not only will it appear on the PS3, but it will be available for the PSP and Mobile Devices (iPhone anyone? Probably not). Other details include more fleshing out of how the advertising will work (advertising will fund HOME, not users), and that players will be able to "auction" off user-created content for money, but it's not detailed whether it's real money or play money used for something else. Also on PS3Fanboy, Microsoft has responded to HOME's announcement with pretty much the most obvious point they could make. "I think they've definitely taken some concepts that we originated like achievements, but I think they're pushing in a different direction and we've sort of fundamentally got two different approaches going on here," says Chris Satchell, director of Microsoft's Game Developer Group. In terms of LittleBigPlanet, Satchell says "I can't see a big portfolio of games at the moment that do this. I don't think there's a whole load to catch up.""
