Sony has put online the official homepage of Playstation Home on their Japanese site, and Gamersyde of course extracted all the images they could find there.
Home=Consoles Myspace,nuff said!
HOME will DEMOLISH XBL;)
shouldn't you be farting on people in Super Smash Bros. Brawl? you know that just released in Japan this week, right? you're late! get to Japan asap! oh yeah, and i agree; Home is looking rather fantastic.
Between LBP and Home, I can't wait to see what devs bring to the table. Can you imagine a Rockstar designed environment where they unveil a new GTA trailer live on Home? Like the room would be packed with everyone's avatar and then the trailer would come on. Can't wait. P.S..the PSN id is Lifendz and I invite you all over for a pool side BBQ featuring cool sounds and cool vids once Home comes online.
They made a big change to the character customization and outside living environment. looks MUCH better but the arcade building is blegh still. Needs more games and other developers need to jump in there too to make something!
One of the great things about HOME, you dont think theres enough arcade games to play, well YOU can make more.
there's only four.
Well they have bowling, pool, chess, golf and basketball shootouts. Go to Ign to see some pics.
don't need pictures. i AM in Home Beta ;)
So have you tried out the basketball shootouts or were they not available?
That was in the "Lounge" of the video but it's not available at all for us.
im really, really looking forward to this. I really love this generation of consoles because of all the non-game, or completely original titles coming. Things like Home, LittleBigPlanet and Afrika are among my most anticipated. And Home isn't too far away now. I can't wait
Me Want. The game seems to have gone through major changes. Example, the lobby is much more different now and the buildings look a but more realistic as well. Hope we get to see more of this at GDC.
Glad the Beta testers are providing good feedback.
i'm glad someone mentions Afrika. that game doesn't get enough attention! might have something to do with the fact that they haven't shown us much yet, heh. seriously, that game has so much potential, imagine how many types of species and stuff can fit on a blu-ray disc. and all the different areas, huge safari lands and perhaps some rainforest etc. i hope they make it absolutely massive.
thanks for the images! Home is going to be awesome!
That's starting to shape up pretty well now.
For sure looking good
Till MS makes XBL free to try competing with PSN and Home.
yeah I bet...funny how MS has been pulling features for the free service ever since Home was announced though...
XBL will never be free...Too many investors and other parties interested in the service being profitable...the entire Live service is treated almost like a seperate entity from the Xbox division, and is doing better overall (much more growth) than the games division is showing...
but they will have to do something...there will always be a premium of somesort...but hopefully MS does see the PSN grow exponentially this year due to massive amounts of innovation...and at least gives XBL free online gaming or something...Anyone can admit that paying for XBL and seeing what is going on with the free PSN...doesn't really make a lot of sense...
The graphics are better than GTAIV LMAO!
i kno, its funy how home has better graphics than gta4 and its FREE.
It is starting to look very impressive but remember. Home has limited to no AI because most of everyone is real. Smaller areas none the size of GTA. When you take into account all the background components you don't see you could imagine the amount of extra resources Sony has to use. Now is Sony added guns and a like warehouse to go in and shoot each other that would be cool!
hahahahhahahahahahah nice joke guys gt4 looks far better than home in every way conceivable
HAHAHHA home looks like crap sim city clone it would never be as great as xboxlive remeber its just a gimmick software
say what you want, if you dont like it, dont use it, if you do then well, do. Eitherway, its FREE so what difference does it make.
Hate on little buddy and while your at it, keep lining bills pockets with your $50... the only person laughing here is Bill @ you suckers.
in-game XMB and Home and XBL is finished. Complete. Destroyed. Free. XBL, the only advantage is that you can message your friends and have voice chat durin games. THERE ARE NO OTHER ADVANTAGES. Home is a 3D realm for communicating, and destroys anything Xflop not-Live can come out with. Imagine going into Home to watch a concert with all your buddies and you can talk to them with the headset. Oh, but you're a useless fanboy who doesn't have any friends except Bill Gates sperm. Imagine meeting game developers and talking to them and seeing their lounges in home, its going to be revolutionary. So stop hating on what you're never going to have, and go back to playing gaylo 3 if your Xbox or Xbox live isn't offline.
You mean we're not gonna find Mesh1 in home? That's even more reason to get it!
haha yeah...the absolute best part of Home is that it will be a huge online community free of douchebag 360 fanboys...
no mesh...no mart...no zhuk...no Icewake...no POG...no FirtKnight...no lawman...That in itself would be worth what they are charged for XBL...
Man, this looks great 'an all, but we've all heard about this for so long now, the anticipation almost hurts.
Home and LBP seem to be so far off in the distance.. I hope we can be pleasantly surprised one day, and get these games AHEAD of schedule.
It's just wishful thinking though, not likely reality.
is that Fabio Capello (England Football manager)?
lol it looks a little like him.
but all i want its the achievements. i can be social in real life better than in home.
You don't get t he idea of home do you? Forget the social part, with being able to chat and play mini games with your friends. Now, on to the solo part.... 1) you create your own place, and you can "PIMP your crib out"; decorate. 2) Achievements? You get a whole room full of trophy's in which are all unique. Aren't these better to show off to your friend? 3) Say you are really good at say Warhawk, Ut3, or some other game right? well go into the courtyard and talk SMACK. People will have the option of challenging you. Personally for #3 I look excited for. Because of HOME, some older games might get a extension on life.
When you say "talk smack" that is interesting. Isnt this text-only? Ie: no voice chat?
Like, put your controller down, pick up your keyboard and "type smack"?
There is voice chat.
there is voice chat
You can talk in a general area, i.e. about 50 in game meters radius around you. You can also mute as well. Since I am very competitive, I will probaly get muted once Home hits. I like to talk smack (noting personal of coarse) to get people riled up. I do not resort to a 14 year old boy or use profanity. Telling another team that they,"suck" is not my style but telling them," Do not be jeolous of my skillz, b-word" I find better. Yes it may still be immature, but I have gotten alot of friends request actually from being funny and making the game more enjoyable. I do hate that however some people join in on my insulting and take it another level using deflamatory comments, racist, or just start cussing. They are not cool, and make me want to mute. These types of people need to stop eating paint chips.
I hope to see you doing that, that would be hilarious.
When I first heard about Home, I wasn't really impressed but, now that I've seen a couple of screenshots here and there...you can't help but get excited. I'm glad Sony went this direction -- very cool concept and it's free!! You'll see me 'whoanellie' on there!!!
I'm a believer!!!!
I want my HOME space! Those pics are awesome. nice!
1 question - can you go into someone else home and chat, i dont know much about home.
Yes; if someone invites you to their home, then you're allowed to go there and hang out and chat. I don't think they've released how many people can fit into one homespace at a time yet, but they've always implied that clan meetings could be held in one, and that you could meet there and then have everyone get online together, etc.
If worse comes to worse, there will always still be videochat still.
impression that once in someones home, you could actually stream media from that persons PS3 to yours. This would be super cool.
I love the look of the Home 'world.' Its futuristic yet Earthy. Modern and idyllic. Open spaces, sun shining, great vistas, massive windows, so even when your indoors it looks like you are outdoors. Coming from a grey London suburb I have to ask 'Why cant the real world look this great?'
it looks pretty good
esecailly downtown near the horton Plaza, and the convention center. ^^
I would expect a project of such a scope to be somewhat of a downer in the visuals department, but some areas of this...heck a lot of areas look breathtaking. You may not like Home, but you've got to give it up to them for this one...it looks great.
Yeah, when I saw the image for this story I had to take a double take. That image alone of the docks with the yachts looks stunning. I can't wait for this, if they can produce anything anywhere near as what's been hyped, PS3 users are going to be in for a treat!
But I hope there will be shortcut options to go from one place to another. I think I'd get sick of walking/running all over the place after a few weeks of fiddling with it.
I'm sure they will have this option, but I don't remember seeing it through the menu's I've seen as of yet.
If you don't want to traverse everywhere on foot, there is a virtual PSP that you can use to "teleport" yourself to any part of Home.
Hmmm... it'd keep you fit! Well er no, maybe not. I agree with what you saying though. I imagine as you say, there will be shortcuts littered throughout Home. The flight to Japan each time for me would be a killer LOL! If you've played Monster Hunter 2 on the PSP then you'll know the shortcut system they use (obviously that's Capcom not Sony) but anything like that would help with time saving and getting to a place quickly. EDIT: Gah! LOL. You got in one minute before me Siesser. Thanks for the update though
This is going to be sweet. The possibilities seem endless with home, and remember, theres always gonna be updates for home, therefor, it will always be evolving.
The only ones hating are obviously blind fanboys that dont even own a PS3 so just STFU!!
This is even more reason for me not to renew my Gold subscription to Xbox Live, it just isn't worth it.
There is a picture with eye of judgement displayed on a big screen (NOT THEATRE PIC). And there are several what look like virtual EOJ Machines in the front.
HOW SICK WOULD that BE? If we can freely walk up to a machine and it'll take us into Eye of Judgement to compete against the person next to us (Virtually in HOME) while the rest of the people in the Room can cheer us on?
I'm sorry but this has to be the silliest thing I ever heard. Decorating your room and dressing yourself sounds fun if you are 5 years old. I can seriously see people that have horrible social lives excelling in this kind of environment. A place filled with shy and insecure people that don't have what it takes to meet real people in real environments.
lol, sounds like you'd fit right in! Thanks for the comment (more FirstknighT drivel), at least you made it in the right section.
@dark knight Yeah...but that also applies to people who believe that XBL is better than PSN because XBL allows them to socialize more!
Hey macalatus you're forgeting that xbl users are PAYING to be social recluses and meet people online because they are to weak at meeting people in real life. So in conclusion boys and girls, this makes XBL better because after all you get what you pay for!
These type of virtual worlds cater to the shy and insecure who doesn't have what it takes to meet real people in real environments. I'm sure some people will use HOME for just casual fun but I'm betting the majority will actually use this as a substitute for real life. To me Home looks to be a silly gimmick. I mean cmon....is there going to be a virtual laundromat so you can wash your virtual clothes?
someones looking a bit green with envy =P
jelous much lol
I now you like it and once you buy a PS3 you will on and on about it will see a new green man this year when he buys a PS3.
You always troll on PS3 topics. Even know because of the forum you are in, you toned down your language to not get your comment deleted. Seriosly grow up and buy a ps3. Perhaps then you will feel like the biggest hypocrite, knowing on what you missed.
know that Home's features can be used without entering this virtual workd right?
You can break in to other home users houses and nick there clothes and stuff lol that wld make it interesting. Im not all that into virtual worlds to be honest, between work, playing games, homelife, social life, i doubt there wld be much time left for it. Does look good tho, cant take that away from it.
"Gimme that custom t-shirt you bought, or I'll dance like an idiot around you for hours"
j/k.. that would suck. ;O)
a virtual GTA world lol ;)
