Sony is now recruiting beta testers for PlayStation Home, the virtual world that PS3 users will use to interact with each other-and try to have virtual sex. They will invite 10,000 users from today to August 11, with the beta starting later in the month. The beta will include only a limited number of places, including a Game Venue developed in collaboration with Namco, where you would be able to play Pac-Man, Galaga, and DigDug. All of them look very nice and polished, however:

The locations include:

• Home Square, the central plaza that gives access to all the places

where users will be able to customize their house.

• Your apartment.

• Theater, to watch videos and trailers.

• Bowling and Billiards.

• Marketplace.
