Second Life

Second Life on the XBox, PS3 and iPhone

Speculation about the announcement due from Linden Lab at the end of the SL5B celebrations has run the gamut from a lowering of tiers, to a Mozilla-like open sourcing of the code, to “who cares, it’s unstable anyways”.

Now, a blank page on the Second Life site may hold a clue, or may be a hoax by some coder with lots of time on his hands or big dreams.

The following is embedded in the source code of a blank page:

“placeholer page for XBOX, PS3, and iPhone versions of client when they launch next real soon now”

Fun to dream anyways.

    No wonder they made voice a priority…your blog entry suggests that Linden is moving away from personal computers and keyboards altogether.

    I would love to have the PS3 version, the PS3 would rip it up compared to most people’s personal computers. Plus movement using the PS3 sixaxis? YES! A fall down to the ground and the controller vibrates? Don’t get me started… I’ve been searching “SecondLife” and “PS3″ for months now hoping to find any story like this with any plans for SL to hit PS3.
