Got questions about Sony's new online service? Games Radar has all you need to know
First I've heard of live sporting events and concerts. If they can make sure it's full of exclusive content that comes to Home before any other media out let first it will be a hit.
I am looking forward to being able to stream my movies/pictures/music to my friends. It will be really cool having access to friends virtual media libraries.
I don't know about streaming it so they can listen to it period but they ARE supposed to be able to view anything in your "home". All pictures posted/ on he wall, all music you have saved there to your radio/sound system / whatever. It's gonna be cool, but like a myspace for PS3 users.
Can`t wait for this. PS3 needs some better form of socialising with fellow gamers cos at the moment kinda sucks. The wholle thing sounds right on the money so bring it on sonny.
it does sound like it's coming along nicely.
[email protected]#K THE QUESTIONS RELEASE IT ALREADY!!!
hahaha I agree
I also agree.
Honestly I think most people don't realize just how nice having HOME will be once its released. I am in the beta but, its an excellent idea and will hopefully be successful. That is to say if people use it, the beta is almost useless since there are only a handful of people on at anytime.
can't wait. That live sporting event thing sounds pretty cool.
I am sure they will be using the Divx encoding to push the events to the various screens in home, but will it allow you to switch it to full screen...now that would be great, bandwidth intensive, but great!
Step 11 take over x box live
I agree,HOME is going to be revolutionary,HOME can possibly become the next myspace and XBL will be losing a ton of customers due to HOME,which is a good thing;)
Take over live? Why do you even need to bring up live? Just like the guy that did the article was lame in saying xbox live gets more dated looking by the month. Why not just talk about the fact that you are finally getting some decent online experience hopefully. Why you gotta hate? Live is a great service and those who don't think so are jealous. Easy to navigate and get what you want.
....wish that they would just release it. PS3 needs this, i want to be able to get achievementson my ps3 games and show them off as trophies in Home in my personal home space.
I also think the virtual concert is a good idea, does anyone know if you can use a real psp instead of the virtual one?
They have to released HOME soon to all the million PS3 user out there...I bet you its going to be a big hit...
I want this to be great when it's finally released, but the wait is killing me. I just wish they wouldn't announce stuff so early. It wouldn't bother so bad if it hadn't been announced almost 1 YEAR AGO.
Can't wait. I wanna have framed porn on the walls of my Home Pad. What a good month to release it too. Was worried they were gonna put it back. Again.
this will be sooo nice. can't wait.
As the article says, it has a "release date" sometime in March... I'd rather have it released when its ready, so i know i have a 99% bugfree environment to run around in. There's no need to be impatient, besides, its free. with that said, look at the more positive sides of this. We just got an article with alot of brand new information: House Pets in your space. (thats news to me) Small application size. Playstation Store availability from inside home (read nr.7) Sporting events and online concerts. If this thing comes out in march, the PS3 will be ahead of the other consoles by August.
Didn't Home have many other release dates before the most recent one? They need to hurry up and release this thing now. I understand they want to make it bug free, but nothing is perfect. I just hope this doesn't become something on the back burner for Sony.
to get more replay value outta my games tryin to make the hall of fame, now thats even better than acheivements to me but cant wait to get those also
I forgot all about this, actually. When's it due out now... October??? Please.
The releasedate is set to sometime in march... Atleast that's what the article states. "Home was originally due out in October 2007 but has since slipped to >>March<<, as Sony puts the finishing touches to its online virtual world."
My main "most wanted" feature within Home is to actually set up all of our store bought (PSN games and PS1 games and so forth and so on) in Coin Op cabinets inside our home or something like in the lounge maybe. It'd be awesome to just walk up to the game in question and play directly inside home. for instance, placing High Velocity Bowling inside a custom arcade cabinet and playing it directly from inside home.
home will rock!
my most anticipated feature for Home is the one where you can watch streaming video in virtual cinemas imagine stumbling into a cinema only to find an interview with sqeenix about ff13 that spills the beans on the gameplay features- and then you can voice chat to discuss what has been said this will be great- i cant wait to start unlocking cool trophies
Haha!! good one :P yes. But really i want HOME a lot and thx to thsch67 i feel better knowing that it will come in march or near it.I want it mabe just to walk and explore the place first, and see all i can do and and!!! i am going nutz!!! Thx a lot for the news :3
this is great news i hope it does not get delayed again ...an wow if it for sure will be free this will be the end of xbox live
Even if they charged for the initial download i'd be fine with that. You know what i mean, like a charge for Home as if it were an online, 500mb game but NOT a service charge, which is something that is recurring like Xbox live. I hate service charges and i kinda think home will be a game purchase though i have no idea how much they'd charge $4.99 maybe. Then again, they said Home is free way too much so there's really little chance of there being a charge at all.
Why must you think the end of xbox live? Do you hate it that much? Have you even tried it? Millions of people around the world find it to be a great online service, that does and has done a great justice to gaming consoles.
Awww, look everybody! It's the Xbox Live knight defender! Well guess what: I fart in your general direction, your mother was a hamster and your father smells of elderberries!
