The launch of a virtual universe for PlayStation 3 users has been delayed once again as manufacturer Sony Computer Entertainment takes almost a year longer than expected in development. 

The virtual universe will allow PS3 users to set up virtual apartments which they can furnish and populate with avatars who can be dressed from virtual shops.
These avatars would be able to interact with other avatars, sharing pictures and videos and playing online games.
The virtual universe, initially promised for late 2007 and alrady pushed back to early 2008, has now been delayed until late in 2008.
