Interesting speculation over at IGN. Smiley Happy

Is BigFest Sony’s New PlayStation Home?

 

The trademark describes a service that involves “hosting on-line web facilities for interactive game play; hosting web sites of others for video and computer games or parts of video and computer games created by others on a computer server for a global computer network.” It also mentions “introduction and social networking services, namely, introducing video game players to each other for the purposes of playing multiplayer games online, participating in online games communities and competitions, and online player networking and social introduction.”

The trademark specifically mentions Sony Computer Entertainment Europe (SCEE) and lists the address of its London office. The original PlayStation Home was developed by SCE London and served as the PlayStation 3's avatar-based social network hub.

 

Interestingly, visiting bigfest.com currently forwards to PlayStation’s official UK site. The Whois data for bigfest.com lists Sony Computer Entertainment Europe as the registrar.

 

We’ve reached out to Sony about BigFest and will update this story with any additional information we receive.

They do, Jo. This is interesting though and it falls in line but a lot of patents and urls are gobbled up for future ideas that sometimes never see the light of day. lets see how this pans out.

I think they meant to register BigJest.com, but it was a typo. Smiley Tongue

Somehow I don't think it could be the new PlaySTation Home, but I don't know could be,  and the link to hte site took me to the offical PlayStation Website so it totally seems somewhat believeable

It sounds nothing like Home.  Sounds more like the Home website that they told us we where going to ge in the CB but never got.  Yet another CB thing that has still not come out yet.

Interesting Information, but I don't see the need to completely rebuild another Social Network when there already is one, unless it's a project due in a long period of time, and Sony is planning to make vast changes.

I just hope that Sony themselves keep up with this if it is to be released, and don't just give up on it in due time.
