    PlayStation Home-esque Experience Coming to XBox Live?

    Sponsored Links
    Today Joystiq (linked above) received some interesting info from a reader, who claimed to have taken part in a survey run by Microsoft which featured avatars playing classic arcade games in a virtual arcade setting.

    If that sounds familiar, you probably played PlayStation Home before.

    To quote: If a consumer survey sent over to us by a tipster is to be believed, Microsoft is looking to bring a virtual Avatar arcade to the Xbox 360. Some of the potential names listed in the survey are "Game Room," "RetroCade," "Tower of ROM," and "Classics LIVE." Yeah, we're partial to "Tower of ROM" also.

    If the proposed service sounds familiar, that's because it's nearly identical to PlayStation Home's arcade spaces - like Namco's virtual arcade - just replace the dead-eyed dopplegangers of Home with the scrunchable avatars of Xbox 360.

    The second survey question sent to us asks, "Which of the following names would most compel you to purchase the product?" indicating that the "Tower of ROM" might not be a free space but could instead have a fee associated with it.

    Imitation is the most serious form of flattery.
    Microsoft has been known to let other companies take an idea and fail at it...then they come back and copy or improve upon the idea and call it their own.

    I know why I pay so much for their stuff, though... they're always in court for some patent infringement crap.
