DLB gives you a view of the New Updated Home Beta as well as showing how the game lanucher works. Video 1 of 3. More Coming Soon!
that HOME is turning that corner speaking of turning corners If your into the whole LAUNCH a game from HOME thing then GT5 should be the reason why we see HOME in 2 months. If your down with racing The True Driving Simulator then look me up. I race clean but Then again the MS crowd will say its second life and Sony does nothing but lie to us all If HOME hits with GT5 Prolouge i think its going to be very cool. I have had no hope in HOME but if they get it working with a few games ppl will then start to see the impact its going to have online gaming at its best plus its free
all games on disk, all games and demos saved on the HDD can be launch from anywhere in Home. i'm in the beta so i haven't watched any of these videos. do they show that we also have a second home space? its a "summer house" that can be purchased from the real estate in the market space. we can also saved mutiple avatars so that if you want to switch clothing you can put together the outfits you like, saved them, then load which ever outfit (or person) you feel like "wearing" that day. this makes it alot better then having to go through all the menus just to change your look. i think you can save about 9 or 12 different models. this update has done wonders for my confidence in this venture. i've haven't been convinced Home would be special, but seeing it from the beginnig (since last summer) to what it is now and is becoming, i think they're on the right course.
free XBL? 3D XBL coming? yea right
That's kinda weak that it makes you log in again after exiting a game, I hope Sony fixes that. In any case the game launcher is the truth, I can't wait but I hope the bugs are fixed for the most part before I'm in.
this looks very good, and I know it is just the beta, but Sony still has a lot of work to do. I am as excited as anyone for what Home will eventually be, but the lag and getting booted problems from this meeting in the video makes me nervous right now. I think Sony will figure it out but I hope they do realize that this closed beta is having these problems and that they are going to need to be ready to handle a ton more people than who are on there now. I mean when Home launches, whenever that is, there is going to be a mad scramble to get in for a LOT of gamers and I hope they have set up everything to handle this. Do you guys think the main area is going to be over packed? Anyone know if there will be multiple of these places for like different regions in the world? I am guessing they will have to do this, I just wonder how many there will end up being? And if you can switch to another regions place if you have friends there...etc?
I was also sceptical about this but it looks really good so far, i'd like to think that in the final version when you quit a game you'll go back to Home, instead of being kicked out. Does anyone know if there are shortcuts to the different areas ?, or will we be made to walk to them all of the time ?, that would get tiresome.
You can warp to places from the virtual PSP.
You can tweak pretty much EVERYTHING! Cheez
Home just isn't ready... I didn't watch all of the vid, but off my own experience with Home. Before and after the update... It's just not there, man. the shop zone/market place/store... They're not set up for transactions yet and the items placed into the store aren't new. This guy should've made that clear. They're all the items condensed down to show you how the store will work. The communication in home just isn't viable right now. The launching of games from your sofa isn't working out how it needs to be. I mean, if you had all your games on your HDD that'd be sharp... since you don't, you have to get together with everyone... Get up off your ass, go pick a game, put it in... relaunch. It's a lot of steps, more so when you're already connected into this virtual game-like world to begin with. You'll know what I mean when you experience it. I love the idea and concept behind home... I just wish Sony would've took more steps to ensures its quality up to this point. they should've released it world wide back in October and let the public make the calls in an open space as to what needed to be in and out. Now, to do a public beta... as I've said all along... It's going to hurt Sony. the media will kill 'em if this thing gets opened up. Trust me. & I say this because it's suppose to be completed by now and still isn't. then, to add to it... when the media and other users get ahold of it they're going to be ripping on it every time it crashes... Everytime they can't do something they thought they could. It's a train wreck.

Get real man.
You don't understand what I'm talking about, obviously. Are you in the beta? ... Let me answer that for you... No. You're not. Let me make myself perfectly clear here. I'll break it down in steps for you... 1 - you turn on your ps3 2 - You sign into your account 3 - Launch from Home itself or XMB, your choice. 4 - You're in Home 5 - You meet up with some passing people. You talk to them. They want to play Resistance. 6 - You have some messages to respond to and other such task you wanna do before you play. Tell them you'll meet 'em in the game. 7 - you go on about your business... You wanna download a vid, watch a trailer, answer some messages... whatever. 8 - After you're done with all that. you get up... Get your game. Put it in. 9 - You launch it from home. 10 - You search the rooms or you spot pick from your location and game you've set up earlier. -- What that does is this... It takes you out of the mood. It's not about being lazy. It's about being in the mood to do something and not in the mood to do something. You might be all amped up and ready to go until you get up and pop it in. Hell, by the time you finish everything you need to do, before you even game, you might just be done with playing for the day completely. the thing about Home is total emission and that's how I know you're not in the Beta. You have no opinion whatsoever. you can't tell me, someone in the beta, what it's like when you're not in it to begin with. It's like telling a boxer how to throw an upper cut or block when you've never boxed. From my experience and a lot of the guys I talk to in the beta, it's not fundamentally sound yet. Launching your PSN games is awesome. Launching your PS1 games... will work too. Launching Ps3 just isn't as accessible, sorry. Argue all you want... You're wrong.
Well, how would you solve this? You're saying launching PS3 BD games from HOME can't be done in a good way regardless. I understand what you're saying, but I do not agree with you.
Finally i will cancell live and play more with Home.
Just fix that exiting game back to home thing and things should be good. I think that will happen most likely after home comes out when more games implement it.
As much as he made it clear it was a beta, like clockwork the same a holes as usual will be in here talking about how HOME will suck. Looks like they have a lot in place and just need to refine and release. I still hope they take their time as XMB works fine right now. Very good video.
I mean come the 'uck on. This is the level, this is brutaly insane.
