Sony saw how great the turnout was last year for their PlayStation Home virtual E3 booth, so they did it again this year. It was a success, with over 500,000 users popping in to check out what Sony has in store for us in the coming years, says VentureBeat. Compare that half a million virtual attendees to the 46,800 people that attended in real life!
Sony had some really cool stuff going on during E3 online. They had the press conference, game demos, floor coverage and even a virtual hands-on (kinda?) of the PS Vita. I bet a lot of the traffic to Home was just to see the Vita.
