Last week at the Game Developers Conference Sony announced PlayStation Home, a virtual world to be played on the PlayStation 3. Nintendo has a virtual personae creator with a bit of a virtual world baked into its Wii system. Gamers can create characters called Mii to interact in the world, and also become the characters playing certain games like Wii Sports bowling, boxing and golf. The creation of Mii characters is the topic of two Nintendo commercials. The commercials show functionality beyond the Mii channel, with unlikely gamers playing golf and bowling with their newly-created Miis. Nintendo also created the MySpace page How Wii Play. There’s more Mii fun to be had, flickr user n1c2c8 posted snapshots of characters created for NBC’s The Office last month.
