Some Totally Hatin' on PlayStation Home

Kotaku is pretty excited about PlayStation Home. Theoretically, it sounds cool, and Kotaku are keen to see how it plays out.
Kotaku writes:
" What does Japan think? Dunno! We do know what readers of Japanese game mag Famitsu think and they're hating on it. In the most recent issue of the mag, the question was "What do you think about member services like PlayStation Home?" Here's the breakdown:
• 27.3 percent are interested in trying it out
• 37.3 percent don't care
• 35.4 percent dislike such services

based on the article I know exactly what the problem is. Misinformation and that is mostly Sony's fault.

Home is not a game.

Home is a service that extends the functionality of home. It's not simulation where you will waste your life, unless you like to socialize with people all the time. In the same manner you do in Myspace and youtube.

yea and als not too sure they are aware its free. who passes up free stuff. home can take gaming to new heights so 4 sure there will be skeptics but i honestly do see crazy success in home.

Korosuke3371d ago

agree.
I guess average ps3 owners don't know what the HOME is.

BobDog3371d ago

lol
the average ps3 owner dosnt know what home is, and the ones that do think that home is game

Mr Marbles3371d ago

most don't know what home is, and don't care.

It's not misinformation - it's a a result of a lack of understanding from those who see it as pointless. What Sony is trying to do here is unique and highly intriguing, and will result in an immersive, entertaining, and dynamic way to commune with other gamers and share information.

It's free for PS3 owners, so nobody should have cause to complain. Furthermore, it'll be a major selling point for the PS3, but I'm sure Sony doesn't intend to hype it too much before it's ready.

Wtf are they talking about? Kotaku have hated on PS home from the very minute it was announced, as they did everything else related to the PS3, and now they're saying "hey, we like it, but japan doesn't". Complete BS, they seriously need to stop with their crap agendas.

Home really just takes a lot of 2d websites/programs and puts them in 3d. I don't see why everyone is hating this so much when it's free. Sony isn't forcing this down anyones throat.

It's going to be a free download from the PS store, trophies will have a 2D layout and in-game XMB is coming. This isn't an "Xbox live killer" or does it define the Playstation Network.

Whats to hate about this? I don't get it.

Korosuke3371d ago

to tell the truth.
Japanese PSN already has similar service.
So I don't think they(including me) dislike this type of stuff.

daous3371d ago

I bet the Japanese gamers prefer a more "anime" or "Cel-shaded" style of PS Home. Japanese gamers don't dig Western or realistic styles that much (unless it's Final Fantasy style realism).

PS Home is being made by SCEE, so of course the designs will be based on European gamers mainly.

and home is one thing i dont give 1 shlt about

gamesblow3371d ago (Edited 3371d ago )

Sony isn't forcing anyone to use this... That must be made clear in this thread before all else. This isn't Something Sony is forcing your to use or even download. It's an "option" Sony isn't going to charge you any money for it. They're not going to break your arm, either. It's up to you if you want to experience it or not. You dont' care about it? That's great... don't download it.

People don't need to ruin the experience for others with negative naysaying is all I'm getting at. Not directed towards you at all. Just in general.

sonarus3371d ago

well if you truly do own a ps3 you will more than likely try it since its free and then you can decide do i want to miss out on a lot of things that will be available only thru home or do i wanna jst take a peek inside. if u dnt like it u dnt go in. wnt affect gameplay of games wnt do diddlysquat. all it does is extend the psn service in a big way. dosent affect those who dont care but to the rest of us who do its a glimpse at where ps3 might be going

Blankman3371d ago

i find it hard to believe individuals with 360 in their name or ps3 or even wii own the opposing console. so yes i am calling you out. you dnt have a ps3
