Virtual MTV is a 3D online social experience where you can live the mtv life with all of your friends. You can create your avatar, design your crib, explore 3D worlds, shop and play fun games. Watch the video to learn more.

This new ALPHA version is browser-based and allows you to create an avatar, get your own crib, explore virtual worlds and play games.”
