New screenshots have been released for Sony's PlayStation Home Beta. Check them out after the jump
I think the more "new" screens that come out of Home are counter productive. Think about it, 3 years on and only a select few have it. I think this is only making people more agitated towards Sony. I don't get what the hold up is. Not really. Sony acts like they're working on spliting the atom or something but really the fundementals are all inplace of what they want to achieve from Home. I've played around with it on several occasions now and as of late launching games and such is in tact. Toss up the store fronts and lets get going. Nothing new will be added to Home from now to whenever it comes out that will make the wait worth it. Trust me. Home is as good now as it will be when it drops. Sony is being stupid about this whole thing and trying to cause a "wii" like anticipation by supply and demand and in Sony's court they have the ball and we have no favors. Way it goes.
3 years on? Home was announced early last year. Thats not even 2 years. Silogon just has a natural habit of making himself look like a jackass.
Jackass is abit harsh ,they should just release it already then update it while we have it .Its starting to annoy me the title of this page might as well be "Look!! At what you cant have!!"
The PS3 is out for less than 2 years. Home was announced in 2007 which is about 1 year. So by Silogon's Fanboy math, that equals 3 years!!! lol
I'm sure many would agree that even though select few have access, these new screens continually show that progress is being made. At least its not a Duke Nukem "It'll be here when its here" thing, nor is it a situation where fans are just keeping a myth alive. (I won't name an example for fear of the "F" word)

Careful of what you say because I think you're implying that you want developers to release broken games early and allow patches to do the work, while we wait with a broken game, which is even worser than just waiting.
krauley, one of the best posts I've red here on n4g.
this is coming from wikipedia, so dont blame me "PLAYSTATION Home(also marketed and referred to simply as Home) is a community-based service for the PlayStation Network which has been in development since early 2005." "Home was announced at the Game Developers Conference on March 7, 2007 with a scheduled global public release in September or October 2007." So if that info is correct, then silogon would be right in saying that it has been in developement for 3 years, BUT was only announced last year
the PS3 isnt even two years old! WTF are you on about? btw Siligon Sony is smarter then you by a long way
lol, when critiquing someone else's intelligence, you used the wrong form of "than".... Bahahahah!
By that logic, PS3 games started development the day PS3 came out, because you can't work on something that the public doesn't have, right? Or maybe Sony has had PS3's longer than us? Nah...
When are they ever gonna send out the invites into the beta for downloading the home theme? That has like died..and it would be really interesting to see how home is moving along now.
The graphics seem to have taken a hit though!
Have you seen Second Life's graphics? If you're gunna flame the PS3, at least know what you're talking about...
hahahha It looks better then too human.
lol, way better
'HOMELESS' Forever!!! ;-D
what did u disagree with? Your smarter then Sony or the PS3 isnt out two years yet? lol hahahahahahaha
I didn't disagree with anything cause I don't use the bubbles or disagree system here. It's stupid and it's broken... Like Sony's Home.
How would you know? , How would any of us know its broken we haven't ****ing got it yet !!??
How would I know? Cause I get hands on time with it daily. That's why. It's broken and anyone who isn't biased would/should tell you this.
lol i have you added on the PSN your never on
Playstation Home will energize the Online Gaming Space like never before http://celinediontoohuman.y...
looks awesome, cant wait to get my hands on it
I just thought. Wouldn't it be cool if your trophy level determined the size of your house or where it is(View and scenery)? I think it would be cool =P
You're correct, it would be cool.
the more options or money in home u have. I wonder if they actually thought of that at sony becus its actually a very good idea. Altho it wud be an isuue if they dont stabilise the trophy system becus to me at this moment in time it seems a bit all over the place.
yeah but money is kinda a "Meh" thing to me. Status would be better imho... I agree with the whole Trophy thing you said but at the same time it is just new and may just take time to get used too is all...
Why? The droids never understand what they flame. Why should I play by different rules?
so you say you dont understand what you posted lol haha
hahahah nice one, bubbles ;).
2nd life is for child rapists, home is for normal people. 2nd lifes graphics are really bad. I think the PS1 could rival it.
this is a huge! home is a virtual shopping mall! home is for socializing & check out whats hot! if you happen to see a crowd getting ready to play warhawk home is a hang out! home is infinitly customizable! home has a movie theathre! home is the 3d myspace of online! home is a technical marvel! home is high definition! home has mansions & lofts! home has a hall of fame leaderboards! home has your trophy room! home has voice chat, text & independent streaming hd videos! home let's you change the height of your avatar! home is a mmo! home is free! home is the future of digital distribution! home is xbox live in 4d! home is coming soon! home is limitless & ever expanding! home is more than just a game! home is the best creation of a social network! home is where I'll be! home has no rivals! home is the future! home makes xbots convert! home makes xboxes avatars ridiculous! Much respect to nintendo for paving the way & to Sony for doing it right! Home!
You know that Second Life, Haboo, Runescape etc have done the same thing before, I'm waiting for the disagrees.
hahaha don't compare that Sh!t to home.
Apparently this guy got his invite today. http://forums.gametrailers....
that dumbass left himself to getting hacked what a tard haha
That one was fake, like the last time the same user posted a pic showing "him" to have the beta, only it was a picture already posted on a newspage ... This time he fcked the date: 'Monday 12th of August" ... 12th of 08.08 = tuesday ...
Droids be slappin' penis pudding to this!
I can't wait. I want to have the ultimate beach party...xD; Okay, okay...so that's far-fetched but seriously this is going to be amazing.
Invite meee! xD hey Juuken whats your PSN?
Check my profile. :]
ok, im adding you today! xD
they look great @Silogon: they revealed Home last year not 3 years ago, although i think they did say (and this was later when home was revealed) that they have had plans on releasing it on the PS2 console but could not
Now give it to us! Please? :)
"PLAYSTATION Home(also marketed and referred to simply as Home) is a community-based service for the PlayStation Network which has been in development since early 2005."

From what I understand of home the holdup is they are trying to better define it, and find ways to make money off the thing. The Pic with the Theater in the background is very telling they may have a vertual movie theater as opposed to just showing trailers like they originally thought. Would be cool if you could watch movies with your buddies for an admission price. We will see though.
wow a disagree...well then that could only mean 1) i DIDNT get those bits of info from wiki 2) being in developement from 2005 till now (2008) ISNT 3 years 3) that if those bits of info was correct that siligon STILL WOULDNT be right with the "3 years" statement so which was it? yes i know that wiki isnt the best source for info...but i like i said in the header of my post "this is coming form wikipedia, so dont blame me" also, i dont have a ps nor will i get one...but HOME does look much better than avatars...lol
Im tired of all these screenshots they need to hurry up and release sony need to stop hyping everyone up and letting them down in a way i really think i wasted money buying the ps3. They need to step things up and come with some more games xbox has loads we need more.
hey are there any suits available in Home?
haha u mentioning suits just gave me an idea they cud do all different events in home like music gigs, massive balls, lol or some massive rafel were the selected person at random cud win new stuff for there apartment or just a new apartment lol.
How the hell you know what Sony itensions are or what is ready for Home. You'll be the same guy when it releases bashing it for not being ready so just stfu. Is the trophy room up and running ? No so to me its not ready because that is the only thing I care about I dont care about no 2d Icon I wanna see that trophy room thing with Home and is the only thing I care about. If thats not up then Sony is not ready.
closed beta expands at the end of the month for anyone who doesn't know by now.
Holy s*** even the beta looks f***ing amazing. Home is gonna break the online boundaries forever. I'm so glad Sony gave us all a chance to sign up to the beta that's hella cool. Only a month to wait until I'm in baby.
i want to killzone 2 spot and littlebigplanet areas!! this is going to be effin sick man!! walk around talk to some random people!! and play some games with them!!! ahaha i love sony !! 30 vs 30 only on resistance only on !!!! PLAYSTATION®3
