PSN Getting More Than Just A Facelift?

Giving the decidedly average PlayStation Store a new coat of paint may not be the only changes Sony make to their online services this year. Speaking with GameDaily, Sony's Scott Steinberg has said:

"On the network side, we've stated that we're in a closed beta now for Home, we'll be rolling out functionality later this year, both for the Network and making Home public to others. So 2008 is going to be the year where both on the service side as well as on a Blu-Ray side, you're going to see everything that we've got."

The story is too old to be commented.

enough with the home rumors. Yes it would be smart for sony to release it with GTA4 but since when has sony ever been smart?

Home will be out when it is ready folks so the release date remains a mystery. A public beta would be nice though.

George Washington3455d ago

lol. this news posts proves all the dumbasses saying gta4 will have home integration are indeed dumbasses. cause according to this home isnt coming out anytime soon. and gta is only 20 days away!! OMG

MrBii3455d ago

Well lets see.

- HDMI, HDD, WIFI, CELL included; check,
- Blu Ray victory over HD DVD; check,
- Outselling 360 with all their cards; check,
- 4 horseman debuting soon. GTA4 April 2008, MGS4 June 2008, Tekken 6 Fall 2008, FF13 Q1 2009; 3 out of 4 check.

Yea I can clearly see how stupid they are, boy. Crawl back in your hole. We dont want your kind.

George Washington3455d ago

mr bii.. im sorry but i think you just proved yourself retarded. saying tekken 6 is on pair with AAA games like GTA4 FF13 and mgs4?!? you seriously gotta be retarded. that game blows. the only good one was tekken 3.

perils3455d ago

@1.4 this really annoys me! "that game blows" referring to tekken 6 im not the biggest tekken fan (i prefer street fighter) but its not even out yet you chuffing moron. how the hell do you know if it blows? super douche time traveling powers?

MrBii3455d ago

Tekken was and still is AAA. Back in the days, this game was a huge system mover and today it still is albeit no longer as big as it used to be.

We arent talking about nothing bt hypoe Alan wake or other 360 crap here.

Tekken was and still is one of the 4 horseman that made the PSX and PS2 the greatest systems around. Youre a fool. How long have you been gaming kid. Get lost kid.

Tekken is a million seller and a system mover.

Sheddi3455d ago

Tekken is my favorite fighting game francise.

liquidsnake3455d ago

Tekken 2 is a big part of why the PSX has sold over 100 million units. Dunno if Tekken 6 will have the same impact but it'll sell units im telling you.

Pain3455d ago

oOooooOOOOOoooo000ooo0Oo

@ GW truth sucks.

LJWooly3455d ago

"super douche time travelling powers?"

That one made me laugh, bubble for you. However, I think we should tone down the insults in the Gamer Zone.

LeonSKennedy4Life3455d ago

So, that's why Tekken 5 got better reviews than almost any fighting game?

sonarus3454d ago

LOL. Tekken is the best fighting series imo. I see you playing online ksmooches. Next time we must battle.

@Mr bill. You seemed to have taken the sony not so smart comment a little to close to heart but let me inform you of some of sony's dumb mistakes

1. No rumble in controller check
2. Weak psStore check
3. No online innovation whatsoever check
4. Not reaching out to developers check
5. Allowing GTA4, Assasins creed and to a less extent DMC4 slip through their grasps
6. No in game XMB

Sure there are tons of others the 360 fanboys on here will be more than happy to point out. Sure there have done a lot of things right but before they started doing things right, they did a lot of things wrong.

GW Quote ^^^

You do realize that Warhawk already has home integration in it right... Its had Home integration since the last game update. Games can be Home ready even though Home is not ready for prime time.

Tekken is the best 3D fighter ever made IMO and not many franchises have seen Tekkens success its in the top 100 franchises list last time I checked and that was not long ago.

"we'll be rolling out functionality LATER this year, both for the Network and making Home public to others"

chaosatom3333454d ago

WILL win sony some huge props.

DRUDOG3454d ago

Meus, LATER could mean a lot of different things. Later this year, this month, this week, etc. I think that Home will go open beta sometime in May (maybe late Apr!). Two months before E3 and a plenty of time to get the bugs worked out. I've been in the closed beta and there isn't a whole lot more we can do IMHO. I wasn't a very big fan of or interested in Home until I learned of the possibilities. It's going to be incredible once they finally have a fully functioning environment with multiple dev areas.

George Washington3455d ago

...great. home has been officialy delayed again!

"we've stated that we're in a closed beta now for Home, we'll be rolling out functionality later this year"

DAMN YOU SONY!! this [email protected] was suppost to be out last year damn it!

Drekken3455d ago

later this year sounds far away, but it could be tomorrow too!

They will have to release an open beta to really test it out... No way will they roll it out without months of testing

George Washington3455d ago (Edited 3455d ago )

"it could be tommorow" dont kid yourself here. this is sony were talking about. i expect this thing to get delayed even more to the point of it coming out in november.

sony does not have a good track record at all when it comes to release dates. basically every game that comes out has been delayed or taken an eternity to come out. just look at how long its taken them to release in game xmb... a year and a half and still nothing. you think they woulda put voice message support in a firmware upgrade or something but no. all we get is bd live bs we dont care about.

masterg3455d ago

Of course later this year could be tomorrow.
Just like "We are not doing a price-cut" doesn't mean a price-cut will not happen.

drdre743455d ago

Home is a Myth. Until it comes out it doesn't exist. I'm just tired of them talking about it and having movies and music on the PSN. Just do it.

MorganX3454d ago

I understand how anxious you are, I want Wipeout HD already, but these things take time. They have to be stable, secure, and perform as advertised.

This could be a game changer. There's so much anticipation, they can't afford to release a dud. If they do, MS will be all over it.

DRUDOG3454d ago

If Home is a myth than where the hell have I been logging into since last June?!? Oh yeah, it's a closed beta and you weren't invited...sorry, but I will tell you that you are not missing much right now.

Just be patient it will be here in the next month or so...

Sayai jin3455d ago

"we'll be rolling out functionality LATER this year, both for the Network and making Home public to others"

Why didn't they say the public. I wonder if it will still be somewhat closed. A lot of people have been waiting for this so the sooner the better.
