Noel Silvia said in a reply to SLICKT8000 on the official PS Blog :
Despite what some rumour mongers would like for you to believe, no, Home is NOT a part of this update.
I am guessing that 2.4 will bring in-game communication.
Home will be a download or something.
I am pretty sure that after gtaiv, people will forget about home for a little more than a while.
man i just want updates really like it use to be every month so the ps3 can get better each time whether its making the online work smoother or adding something to the ps3 and Home let it come whenever it needs to and the in-game xmb too not really wanting those right now (but i want them) the last recent updates are the sh!t love them can't wait in till the next one
elvfam511 - psn tag
HOME can come with a firmware but it doesn't necessary have to be included in the firmware, it is purely optional, those who don't like fancy stuff can save some space on their HDD
and since beta testers are already running home on their PS3, i am guessing HOME will be made available as a seperate download instead of necessary download with the firmware
maybe people disagree because they don't get to be the first person to comment.
i was wondering that too, lol why have you got disagrees? don't worry, i'll give you bubbles!
Home isn't going to require a download. The PS3 already has what it needs in it's end. It's only a network addition that Sony has to put in place.
Do you really think home will just randomly appear in a firmware update. When home comes you will know like a week in advance. No matter what though it won't stop ps3 owners from waiting for it in firmware 2.301. 2.4 is also not confirmed. Only thing semi confirmed there is in game communication's whatever that is
2.3 Store PIMPing (April, days before GTA4 and GT5p for US) 2.4 In game communication (June, days before MGS4 launch) 2.? maybe 3.00... Home integration (July or August)
It does seem that July is when Home is coming.
so wot about that random surprise on monday? can it be Home?
we were suppose to get home in october, i wanted it so bad and then, its delayed i never understood why there isnt an open beta where anyone can participate. if some people have it why can't others? The products not finsihed but id be better if everybody reported bugs instead of less amount of people when it does finally release the servers will probably crash lol, everyone with a ps3 logs in at the exact same time.
Only a little more....
This is the first Home story I've approved in a while, and I only did because it's straight from the blog.
That and people talking about Home coming every week is just getting annoying.
Some of you people here make Home sound like that Weekly World News magazine and the cover stories about how the world was defnitely ending next week. Then the next. Then the next. Then the next.
EDIT-What a surprise. There are already posts in here about when it's coming.
It's good to know it's not coming. To many people get up their hopes only to have them crashed afterwards. I could only imagine how many people would be complaining if they had said nothing and then it not show up.
Home is coming when we least expect it! On the day of the week that ends with "Y"!
i just wish people didn't get their hopes up so high. being in the beta, i can say it's not the coming of Christ.
Do you think that might be because there are not many people using it? Aren't a lot of the features left out too? I'm mostly stoked on Ingame XMB. I want Home but, Sony is really dragging their feet on this one.
HOME will come when its ready.
thinks that home will come when is NOT ready LOL... he's probably gonna disagree with me too
Home will be a download!!
and also in game communication has been confirmed for 2.40 :)
I just want XMB. Home is dead to me right now
The speculation is making the wait worse. Until Sony says something as far as I'm concerned its not coming for a long time.
I'd much rather have in game XMB at this point.
agreed.. Home's hype was good, but it died since all those delays, just like Haze's (i think)
It is not gonna be ingame xmb it is gonna be ingame COMMUNICATION !
Sony is still oblivious to what we PS3 owners want. Ok, so HOME won't be available anytime soon as per the norm...give us in game xmb. Is it really that hard?
if there wasn't any problem with the xmb or it was raedy, dont you think we would have it by now? i dont know about you but i'll wait until its spot on. dont give me that we've waited long enough stuff either. if we were all impatient as some.... we'd have RROD's after every hour of gameplay *hint* lol
idk a lot people is saying it might crash the ps3 or what not but i think like putting with the games that came out already maybe affecting it i think (my opinion) is waiting for developers to update there game so it be able to handle it idk im just talking here give me some credit for imagination lol
filthy earth boy lies!
To good to be true about Home coming now. It will come in July, like that leaked release schedule had on it.
its been stated many times Home will be a download from ps store, yet you ppl scream home whenever a new firmware updates coming lol! ..anyways i heard in-game 'communication' will be in 2.40 so we getting closer
the 2.40 in game xmb rumors either, it appears that it may be a while before they give us any in game communication. :-(
Sony doesnt rush a product if its not finished they are not microsuck.
After E3 you'll be posting on N4G how its coming March 09 like everyone said last year after E3.
I really believe they're scared to release it because the PSN infastructure can't handle the volume. If they release it and its laggy and crashs it will be a MASSIVE hit to PS3.
I'd be suprised if its out by this Christmas.
Home is Sony's Duke Nukem Forever. Vaporware.
As for "Microsuck" releasing incomplete products... At least they release SOMETHING. With Sony all you got is millions of Sony fanboys speculating... ITS COMING IN JULY. ITS COMING AFTER E3. They're all praying and Sony is ignoring you all.
yeah vaporware correct me if im wrong, but "vaporware" does not have a closed beta, doesnt have a working build and hasnt have multiple public demonstrations and you complain about flip-floppers, jeez Home is a pretty huge thing, Sony have to get it just right and get all the key elements working properly and I BET that you have NO IDEA about the infrastructure of the PSN or XBL for that matter- just some BS you pulled out your ass as a means to bash the PS3
AWW Poor xBot Lemmings HOMELESS!!! ;-D
PATHETIC! HOME WILL be the Final nail in your sorry @ss Coffins!!! ;-D
delay station gay
this is wating
this waiting knob gobblers
It's funny how you never see these xBot Slaves comment on the story of how PS3 beat xBox 360 for the last 3 months! :D
SAD SAD xBot Slaves xBox360 is Sinking FAST!
we may b closer to 2.40 but it can still be off bar far
and home is a download not included with FW updates
is a new store not good enough for people? In-game XMB will be here before Home and both will come when they are ready for us to have them. If you ask me, the DTS-HD MA for the blu ray was a big enough bonus in this FW update:P Besides wishful thinking, did anyone really believe they were just going to sneak Home out to us?
i can't wait in till this day is over so i can see the new store man a lot people just greddy and sh!t and don't appreciate the updates sony is giving us (i was like that but i changed) man i can't wait to see the new store it looks amazing really organized man can't wait
home is a myth!
Home is peeing me off!!!
Yup I'm beginning to think that too. If home was a service that came _with_ the PS3, then it might be something to brag about, but here we are, 6 (or is it 7?) months after it was supposed to be released, and we are still not even at the open beta stage. I would be very surprised if we see the full realease of home before Q4 this year. And let's face it: most people aren't going to be _too_ interested in a beta, after all, it's buggy and not feature complete. What's more, they've only just started to add the features into home that people really want, like game launching. And it seems as though devs will have to actually implement something so that you can do that with their game. And because home has been endlessly delayed, I don't think that most devs will have bothered, meaning, that you will only be able to launch into a very limited selection of games from home when it first launches. Same goes for trophies. In all honesty, all I really want as a service is voice chat THAT ACTUALLY WORKS and a way to always be able to contact my friends and then launch into ANY game with them. I don't need some lame 3d world where I can buy clothes for a fee but I CAN'T launch into most games with my friends. </rant>
i couldnt have said it any better. i just want to be able to have a unified friends list, the ability to lauch a game with friends and also be able to chat to my friends without having to quit my game. if i had those features HOME would be worthless to me. my patience is wearing thin. everytime sony does not release home the hype grows stronger i fear that when home does luanch 1 either ppl lose intrest and it fails or ppl look for all the bugs and complain about it till they scrap the whole thing. either way it doesnt live up to its hype
Lol at the OC (Original Commenter) funny sh!t man, funny sh!t... Bubble +
I wonder if people stopped mentioning Home or XMB will it come sooner. I can already see it tomorrow: "OH NOEZ NO IN GAME XMB" "FAIL" The Genius has spoken
Sony Home CEO William Roll confirms Home to be released tonight with firmware update 2.3. Heres the video interview.
lol rick rolled again.....
holy crap this deserved its own article?
I think a bigger surprise would be that Home will actually come out one day.
we know 2.40 will be in game messaging and will be out in the next 2 months.
2.50 should be out around E3 and the could announce at there evemt that HOME is avalable to download.
so wats the firmware 2.30 gonna have anyone know
edit: i see. thanks for your info
a new PS Store and sum dvd audio thingi
a New PS store and the most wanted codec that video/audiophiles and PS3 users wanted since launch DTS-HD MA. the best codec when it comes to theater like sound. it can be used for games and blu-ray movies.
*sits down* Thats all I wanted to say (:
rumours are a good thing :)
you never know man sony might be looking at these articles and see the post and get ideas from our rumors so as long we keep having rumors i think the more chances we get what we want
Rumors aren't always a good thing. Rumors usually leads to false hopes and misgivings. I know rumors sometimes turn out to be true, but they're usually just BS.
yh rumors are good, keeps the hope of fanboys up
LOL!!!! Nice Jander02!!!
Thank you. Thank you.
i wonder if sony will sneak any hidden feature that they wont tell about like in last update
I'm sick of hearing people say "home will be out after this Xx/xx/08 date". Obviously Home is a big thing and is definitely not vaporware like the idiot above says. Thats exactly why it just won't randomly appear in some update. It will have a set date once it's finished and Sony will let people know that it's coming out.
go look at the blue PS3 on ebay it looks sick.
imagine if HOME was rushed it would end up crashing like the XBOX shag LIVE service..'and i know we dont want that'!!!
Rightttt XBL is stable and far, far better then PSN Home is delayed constantly, nothing more then a graphical gimick and you're glad you're waiting forever I guess...
Stop guessing! Sony will let us know when Home is ready for release. They will most likely advertise and have videos and blah blah on PSN. Stop throwing stupid random dates and firmwares around.
im glad that most people seem excited about Home. most people seem absolutely desparate for it to come out and its not even a game(well not strictly)! sony are doing something right. now they just need to release it before it gets to the stage where we become a lynch mob! "BURN EM!" (waves pitch fork!)
