NEW YORK–It already has one of the most valuable brand names in television. Now MTV is hoping it can repeat that success as a marketing leader in virtual worlds.

That was the cable giant’s message during a three-part keynote address Wednesday morning at the Virtual Worlds 2007 conference here.

The company is calling its new cross-platform strategy “4D.” Essentially, the approach will attempt to combine content from MTV Networks’ television shows with fully 3D virtual worlds and then put it all through a feedback loop in which people can interact with TV personalities and create content that becomes part of the shared experience.

“We really believe that this is going to profoundly change the ways that brands like MTV interact with their audience,” said Matt Bostwick, senior vice president for franchise development at MTV Networks’ Music Group. “There’s no tight storyline you’re following. It’s an open experience.”

Introducing…BlurbMe.com – itSreal

It is amazing how a simple question can uncover so much…

…after being speed around Senotosa on Todd Murray’s (founder of activedeals.com) pride and joy BOAT I asked someone what they did, and proudly the revealed they are behind the blurbme.com website.

Upon arriving home I checked out blurbme.com and what an awesum site. Upon registering you are able to login and review a restaurant, nitelife venue or spa & beauty salon. Currently only available for Singapore but wow how it makes life easier deciding where you want to go and live it up a little. The reviews are done by you or me so they are REAL reviews. I did a quick test and found a restaurant which I think is a cool idea but falls badly on service and most important of all – the food. As with my opinion the reviewer also thinks the place should take a close look at what they are offering. Can you guess which restaurant I am bloggin about, check out www.blurbme.com and send me your answer. (Hint, I am an Australian)

Well Done to the founders of BLURBME …you have an awesum site !!!

“home” Sony’s Virtual World, coming to PS3 soon…MASSIVE news – itSreal

Watch the trailer, which just went up on GameTrailers.com after being shown at GDC. It shows a PS3 service from Sony called “home,” which is, yes, a free 3D online space where you’ll be able to customize your avatar and your own private home, hang out with other users there and in various common spaces, stream your media into your virtual pad (as in Kaneva), and chat via voice, emotes, short pre-loaded phrases or with a USB keyboard, as well as hook up with other people and follow them into PS3 games. In terms of pushing the metaverse out to the mainstream, this is pretty huge news.

beta testing starts April 2007

• virtual real-estate sales
• in-world interactive games
• latest Havok physics
• in-world HD video
• dynamic lighting
• customizable avatars
• VoIP
• downloadable furniture and objects for purchase
