Sony's Second Life-esqe avatar MMO social networking experiment Home has had a shaky start. When the open beta launched back on December 11th, reception was mixed. Countless people joined the online persistent world and made the most attractive and bizarre human-like avatars they could, bowled a few games, watched some trailers, and danced...a LOT. When users started having connection problems, Sony pulled out the voice chat feature, presumably to maximize bandwidth while they worked out the kinks. Well today must be our lucky day, because Sony announced that Home patch 1.05 is available today and brings the voice chat feature back to the game. Users can enjoy the feature in their personal space and clubhouses, allowing them to actually talk to their fellow gamers, rather than text chat and use canned animations to express themselves. I predict there will be a huge spike in complaints and invitations sent to female avatars starting today.
