Dress Expansion For PlayStation Home


Dress was mentioned at the TGS keynote, but wasn’t explained really until now. Basically there will be a virtual space for Dress where you can dress your avatar, most likely separate from the Home avatar, and you will be able to purchase those clothes as well. Or even trade them with other people. Details are below.

Dress Studio lets you create your own fashion, selecting color, material, patterns and logos. It appears that the game will let players make their own brands. Sony is even looking into letting players send their designs away to have them transformed into real life clothing.

Dress museum is a museum of clothing history. It has some interactive elements where you gather famous scenes from movies and famous characters.

Dress park is a community space that’s meant for players to communicate and exchange gifts, including clothing. Sony will hold official events and fashion shows here, giving players the chance to appear as models. Players can also organize their own shows based around their original brands. This is something that Sony hopes to actively support, Shichisawa said.

Dress should arrive in early 2008, hopefully in time for the public release of Home. I like the idea, I’ll definitely try it out. Wonder how much the clothes will cost.

    “separate from the Home avatar” ? I certainly hope not. If this is the case, I won’t be using it.

    This is a very interesting idea… I like the fact that Sony is actively supporting content creation within the Home environment. I wonder if this would attract more female “gamers”.

    come on, guys.. This is the perfect way of making your own unike avatar.

    This is where Henning goes into the fasion biz with his own PS3Blog.net collection.
    This is where Tosh makes his Nuke-Clown-at-Leipzig-T-shirt.

    This is where Home became GangLand Online..

    Lol, I surprised you remembered that photo :P

    I’ve always wanted flame pants like Jin Kazuya in Tekken 3, but I could never find a pair. Maybe with this I could get one, lol.

    What i’d love to see is games using your home avitar.
    Of course it wouldn’t work for all, but imagine playing skate with your home avitar, then dropping into dirt using the same guy, obviously dressed in race gear, then jumping into GT5, with the exact same uniform. Or even starting up a game of resistance 2, dressed in WW2 gear of course, but playing as your avitar, with everyone around you playing as theirs.
    That is what i’d love to see.
