PS Home, a service that is only good for generating profits for Sony and nothing more. I love it sooo much, take my money!

You do realise that everything is based on generating profits.

No matter what reasoning you add the main purpose is for profit.

I was really excited for Home, but ended up being very disappointed. However, Sony aim to generate profits. For Home to generate profit it has to have people who are interested in it. By the look of it I would say Sony are providing a service that many people enjoy. I see plenty of people enjoying PS Home. So yes, it is good for generating profits, but it is also providing entertainment for many people. it just isn't my thing in its current state.

If its creating profits then people are buying stuff there. And they keep signing up outside devs to make content with some growing to notable status, so they have to be making something as well.

In short your statement is invalid. Would have been nice if you mentioned some reasons to support it.

you do kno xi launched 3 years ago right? this is just a continuation of the first xi

Yes, I know that. That's why I said its the one thing that could get me in Home again.

Home has turned into another Second Life, regardless of what its fans want you to think.

Unfortunately, I just go in for the games, which most of the time, aren't that great. Virtual worlds aren't my thing, I prefer socializing in the real world, and when I get time to hop on my PS3, it's to play those things called games. I was in Home since closed beta, and when the flood gates were opened, it just turned into another Second life.

Is that such a bad thing when you don't feel like playing the average game. Just wanting to do random stuff on Home isn't as bad as some would think.

Can't wait to see what Home will turn into with the PS4.

Nes_Daze: "Virtual worlds aren't my thing"

I'm sorry, so why are you commenting here? JPRPG's aren't my thing, but I don't jump into articles about them to say "Listen to me! I don't like this because it's not something I'm interested in." Out of curiosity, why would you feel compelled to share that?

Of course you're entitled to your opinion, but I'm not sure what point you're making. It'd be different if you had a point, or wanted to add something relevant to the conversation or your experiences with Home, or something...but "It's not my thing?" Isn't Home supposed to be like Second Life? You act like it's a bad thing.

I'm not a truck guy, but if a table next to me full of people enthusiastically talking about trucks, if I were to blurt out "I don't like trucks! I don't like to drive them in the city, they're too big!" they're rightly going to look at me like I'm some kind of nutter. Have I added anything to that conversation?

I don't mean to pick on you, but I see this behaviour all the time and it just baffles me. Home didn't grab me either so I really have nothing to bring to the table in these conversations, that's why I stay out of them.

Edit: Sorry, I meant for this to be a reply to Nes_Daze.

Why am I here? Because I can be, because I can criticize something that I expected more of, I actually use to enjoy Home, when it had more to do about games. I don't think it was supposed to be a Second Life, not as much as it is now. Is it a bad thing, well more people who have PS3s that don't play games isn't necessarily a bad thing..I guess.

I was a bit vague when I said that about virtual worlds, so that was my fault, but no I'm not fond of a Second Life rip-off on the PS3, as harsh as that sounds, and I say this because there's absolutely almost no emphasis on any gaming in there.

LMFAO does anyone even US home?

I logged in a few years ago, and it f**ked up my hard drive.

Have not logged in sense..what a DISASTER and COLOSSAL waste of money by Sony..yikes talk about a FLOP

And yet
HOME has been profitable for them. And if you think it's a "flop" why don't you Google their return user rate.

Flops don't get new content AND new developers week in and week out.
