Forums - Sony Discussion - PS3 online "myspace"-esque site to be called "Mezone.com"?

 

Check this out, Sony just filed a patent for a very suspicious site:

Would be funny if it is. That's about the best cheap Chinese knockoff name they could have come up with.

Well, maybe a "facebook"-esque site called "visagetome.com"



Wow, when is Sony going to do something original? I thought Home was going to be the new myspace...

 



Home is the new Second Life. Mezone is the new Myspace. I don't think originality is a relevant issue.



all you guys are forgetting that this may be a placeholder name for the actual domain. Trying to not risk the same pre-mature revealing that Home got.

Compared to what the other rivals are doing in this category, its more original than you think.
