- According to Gamezine (linked above), gamers have already spent $1 million through purchasing the virtual goods available in Sony's PlayStation Home.
To quote: That's right, Sony's service hasn't been out for long, but it's already made Sony $1 million from the priced goods available.
T-Shirts, furniture and plants have all been enough to cause PlayStation 3 gamers to open their wallets. Intriguing that the "nickle and diming" tactic has already worked.
According to Kaz Hirai
at Sony's CES conference, 3.4 million people have downloaded the PlayStation Home Open Beta. Plenty of people to spend some pennies indeed.
What have you done folks? Spending money in Home!? It's meant to be free! Stop encouraging them! I don't think this was what was meant when Bethesda said it could be the industry's defining moment. :P
