Kotaku Rumour Rocks Web

Kotaku.com caused a stir after receiving a rumour about a Playstation feature to be announced at GDC next week. PlayStation Home as they were informed would be "Sony's blending of achievements and Miis".

Their source went on to describe the Playstation Home, "Basically, you get to make an avatar for your console (like a Mii) and this avatar has a room. As you play games and accomplish certain tasks, you will receive items with which to adorn the room that are specific to the game (achievements). The kicker is that this is going to be a new requirement for every PS3 game."

Kotaku delved deeper looking at keynotes from last years GDC, where Sony said, "So we move from product based to service based, starting with packaged product augmented by downloadable content. We'll enhance this with social networks, the MySpace experience, this will be a key part of the PlayStation3 going forward. What brings it to life is the voice chat, the text chat, the video, the social features we're building in for the future."

At this point Sony cut loose all ties with Kotaku, for a day, but even more information has now been revealed. NeoGaf did their own research, and found a trademark filed by Sony, called Playstion Home.

All in all, it looks like Sony's keynote at GDC next week has got a lot of people excited.
