Home will go into a closed beta test this spring with a full launch targeted for later this year.
Screens look awesome can't wait to hear more about Home. Hope we hear a release date soon though. Edited.
stop doing that. No good ever comes from hyping up rumors. But these screens indeed look great.
Hear more? I am tired of hearing I wanna use it already...
Am I the only person who is bored of seeing Home screens? Screens should only be shown for something which is graphically impressive, although Home looks good, it's not a game, it's a social network and doesn't look good enough for an N4G story every 2 days about "new Home screens".
It should just be released already, I will download it when it comes out on PSN, but I expect to be disappointed, I just feel like there is way too much hype around this.
Am I the only one who thinks HOME wont live up to its hype? People get too exicited with some screenshots.
Dont get wrong, I own a PS3...but im not too sure about HOME
am honestly impressed with the incredibly clean look of home.....as I was almost expecting it to look a lot like the Sims in terms of graphics as it is constantly compared to it.......but it looks to be of much higher Graphical Quality ...and all this for FREE ??? WOW . .. ....."The JOEY has Spoken"
it seems like HOME just keeps looking better and better each time we see it. It's gonna be huge!
It's free too. i need this now its going to be sooo cool,
Im going to put my headset on and run into the cinema and start screaming lol
....."The BEN1054 has Spoken"
to Create a REALLY White Zombie looking Character, with really sunken in eyes, raggety clothes, etc or stretch the facial features out in a crazy way to just to have fun with it and make a unique "Monster" like character?
There will be mishapen avators no doubt. I'm just wondering what Sony will do about X rated user content. I mean people made D*ck faced Mii's on the Wii check mii out channel. You know people are going to do some crazy stuff in Home. haha
I wonder how much you will be able to change the physical look of a avatar, I mean most i've seen are all about the same hight, weight, and body type. I want to see the limits to which you can take it.
home looks better then some games....
we or know Wii glaphics are raffable
ronery, so ronery
war will be over before we ever see HOME it seems. I'm a big a Sony fan as the next PStriple youtube video creator, but I've grown tired of this policy of SOny to release vids and/or screens w/o any concrete information on when it's actually coming. I know you want to get it right, but this is ridiculous. It makes your claims of "we've been working on this for years" seem misleading at best. At this point in the PS3's life cycle we should have at least in game XMB. We don't. Congrats Sony, you've baked and iced a giant fail cake thus far.
Seems like everyday we get more "fantabulious screenshots and videos" but with no freakin release date or a freaking clue.
Thank you for being an honest Sony fan.
Before the Sony fans declare victory they might want to at least know when big features like in game XMB and Home are being released.
Sick of waiting. More screenshots just make it worse.
more like a place for perverts to hang around
GT5 screens: boring, next Home: perverts... never satisfied huh well that's fanboyism for ya
What like xBox LIVE??? ;-D
BOTS can't stop crying, your "HOME" is coming:
when E3 is this year? Or where they're going to hold it?
e3 is most likely an invitation only 'event' again, the e-for all is from 3-5 Oct in LA
so we ll be seeing you guys there then?[lol].peace out.....
I'll be there;)
nowhere,but dont cry 360 dudes you ll always have halo2.5 sorry i mean halo3[coughs].peace out.....
I think this games graphics are at par or even better than GTA4...
"Home will go into a closed beta test this spring" Does he mean open beta?
It's already in a closed beta, is it not?
WTH.. Home isn't coming out til summer at best, fall at worst. This is infuriating.. SONY, YOU DESERVE TO BE SPAT ON AND PISSED ON. I've been waiting since october for this "supposed" answer to xboxlive.
^^^ is when i got my ps3... selling points was MGS4 (obviously), LBP, Resistace and HOME!!!!... i expected Home in October 07 :-(
although the delay sucks ass (especially cos it was a reason why i wanted my ps3) it doesnt matter to much... i mean we all want it to be the best it can be on release... + its FREE!!!... now that exciting
looking snazzy wow now there's a word i haven't used in some time
Home will be Cool no matter what u Use it For.
Especially if you use it for being an Emo who makes female play house avs with 'special unique' earrings and hits on other weirdly-modeled av characters who walk like they got some brown banana up the ass???
::looks at your avatar:: IRONY!!!
I agree, but the games that Sony have released are far from TOP NOTCH. I bought my ps3 when it was 600 and i want to feel as if i got the most for what i paid for. Home is an exclusive application to the ps3 and it was promised in october. I've been more than patient with Sony yet they keep losing my loyalty everyday when i see more exclusives going to the 360 and game delays. The best game Sony has at the moment is a multiplatform game. Call of Duty 4. I want to see SONY'S guns now so that i could justify buying a ps3.
I have been an avid suppoter of xbox live for a while but having spent more and more time on my ps3 im starting to evaluate my previous posts.
If Sony can pull this off along with XMB this year then i will cancel my xbox live subscription as i won't feel that the fee is justified.
While i think xboxlive is easy to navigate and does what its supposed to do i am starting to feel a bit ripped off.
While £4 a month or so isnt a lot if Sony can do the same for free then what exactly am i paying for.
Come the end of the year i have a feeling alot of 360 users will be asking the same thing.
While this isnt a dig at the 360 ( i am happy with the games and service) is it a question that isnt being answered... just what am i paying for?
It's one of the things I asked myself when I was debating which console to get first. I just asked myself why should I pay to play online if that's the main thing I'll be doing and it's free on PSN? My decision to go with PSN worked out great. If you're into all the fluff of XBL that makes you feel it's justifiable of a fee then props to you, but if your main focus is online gaming then FREE always beats subscription.
ps3 games apply the home achievement system which contain trophies. looks good!
Looks better each time;-P
HOW LONG ARE WE GOING TO BE HOMELESS!?
these screens don't look so new to me
home is like a 3D version of live and the nintendo v.c. Its gonna be great! Yes it will get perverted like those games you find in japan but so was UNO for xbox live. Wasn't that cool? Oh yeah! This virtual world will create a brand new type of addiction. We want it and we need it now!
...PSN in NZ/OZ then all you'll get is access to a lot of doors featuring a sign of "coming soon". PSN in NZ/OZ is dire with only 1 good release every 3 or 4 months.
put down the banana slowly and just walk away,and see sense and go buy a PS3,it will do more for you than your 360 and banana put together,and if you dont take my advice you are seriously beyond the help of the sony faithfull.peace out.....u know it makes perfect sense
The hair, shadows, and clothing look downgraded compared to the leaked beta shots and footage.
Enough with the screen shot fetish! Just release it!
