Sony announces Asia's release for PlayStation Home.
so shouldn't EU and NA get it earlier? Isn't Home being developed by a SCEE dev?
Just let's hope we get it shortly after
...or shortly before
I'm guessing they want to start out small first to see if they could handle those territories and then move on to EU and NA later. Theuy want everything to go well when it comes to the states.
yes! that means it will come to NA soon!!!!!!!!!!!! woohoo!!!
I think they are probably gonna release in Asia first because of the low user base there that are using their PS3 online. With the lower user base the less strain on their PSN networks so they can work out the kinks before they release it in the bigger markets like NA..
My guess is that they want to comfirm that Asia won't be left out without a home this year, by this announcement.
I thought it was a simultaneous worldwide release.
dun dun dun!!!
Asia first, then the world.
at least its ready! cant wait. congratulation's ASIA. enjoy. oh man this is gunna be like an early Christmas for them. and me if it comes out b4 Christmas! : ) : P
Home is the perfect Christmas present for PS3 owners along with LittleBigPlanet.
I think that even with all the hype surrounding the title, it's still being overlooked by a certain few. Personally, i'm really excited for it!
october brings socom, bioshock, and littlebigplanet, november has R2, then some sweet little multi plats, then killzone in feb. home sometime before the end of the year. man i can't be happier.
I forgot how many games Sony has coming our way. So much for the "no games argument"...
so i guess USA and EU will come soon too
I wonder what Microsofts comeback to Home will be.. Probaly something lame like "Hotel" where they charge you by the day to use it.
ahah "Hotel" yeah that is what they are gonna do.
LMFAO!!! That made my day. But back too reality, Judgement day nears for the 360. Can't wait to display that ol' Uncharted Platinum trophy of mine in my trophy case, Sweet!
I'm a 360 owner, but that made me laugh.
who doesn't know Micro$oft ?
hahahaha yeah, and they will charge extra more $$ for HOTEL and parking garage. and they will let u pay TAX !!!! for water use and electricity. hahaha
we are releasing a completely useless piece of crap named avatars, this is just a completely useless attempt at getting back at our rival, Sony.
and when is europe getting it, they better not do to us what they did with the dual shock pad!!! (-_-)
NORTH AMERICA?! i hope it comes out soon.
They said it will be here by the end of the year. You've waited this long, what's a few more months going to do?
I seriously am not excited about Home. I really do not see what the big deal is. Think about it, if this were say some 3rd party software, no one would give a rats ass about it except maybe some teenage girls. I've seen the beta and all I can really say is "So what?"
Well why don't you go be homeless with the Xbots, if your not one already. This isn't the place to be the Negative Nancy, but one where all PS3 owners alike can rejoice!
I am there with you. Just give me good games and dedicated servers to play online. I don't care anything else.
I think its going to be great! They could stream live events like E3,TGS etc..right in HOME Advertise upcoming movies and games.The theatre sounds so cool. There will be 3D throphies Rumors of adult only areas And its a great way to talk with and meet new freinds on PSN. Unlike second life it will be ONLY gamers,and PS3 gamers at that.None of these dumb as f*ck 360 fanboys like here on N4G As well as the game rooms like Uncharted,warhawk,Killzone2,Li ttlebigPlanet etc HOME has endless posibilites.And its free.How could you not like it?
It not about liking or not. For me, its more about do i need it ?? My simple answer is NO. I don't need features what home offers. I rather have less lag server to play online game. On my preference, community is on second place after gaming. I would love to see dedicated servers and minimum issues with online play and i might appreciate home.
you aint seen sh!t
Seriously. Not trying to troll. What do you guys see in Home that makes you so excited? I've spent some time in the Beta and felt rather underwhelmed. Seriously, what are you so excited about?
Like for example, cross-game stuff?
Different strokes man. I don't particularly see ANY value in achievements and trophies personally, but it's obvious others do. So I don't bother to ask them why they like them, they just do.
It has to do with social networking. I know how people will react to that, but look how much more vast the landscape of competitive gaming is because of the internets, and look how much more vast the entire world is now in making new friends. As much as the real world is, the internet IS the real world. It's only making your real world much bigger and is letting you reach places that you wouldn't otherwise be able to reach. You would be able to meet those people you compete with online in a much more social environment than is there right now. This is something that the 360 cannot do on its own right now, and that will give the advantage on that front to Sony. Until this point, the 360 has had the advantages, and Sony has been playing catch up. However, they are really neck and neck as far as network features go. With Home, that will all change. Sony will have more than just avatars, but full on Sim-like characters with a Second Life influenced world with alot to do and full-on customization of your condo that you will have. This will, if nothing else, make MS have to answer, and that will be the first time in the console war that Sony will have the edge and something MS doesn't currently have. That, my friend, is the big deal. A one-two punch with something that changes the landscape of social network gaming.
Asia? I will never cease to be amazed at how confusing these companies can make thing.
You do realize that Sony is an Asian company (Japan is part of Asia) and all the studios, no matter who develops them, are funded by Sony. Why are people surprised about Sony confirming Home for Asia before US and EU?
because people are whinny greedy little b1tchz
I hear lots of people comparing Home to XBL and I find that rather amusing because the time I've spent with the beta has shown me the two aren't even in the same ballpark. XBL is like playing wiffleball with a bunch of kids...yeah it's fun but it's still wiffleball. Home is the Big Leagues. Don't get me wrong I'm not one of them this is better than that, I'm just giving my opinion. On the surface some people may not like Home and be quite dissapointed in it, but for the gamer that delves deep into his or her games, plays online more than 10 hours a week, or just loves to play with something new...Home is that and much much more. Just wait until you sign on, you'll be messing around with things in your 'living space' for hours and it won't be at all a waste of time.
Well, I guess HOME really is coming this year after reading this HOME announcement for Asia, I just hope the Japanese can learn to embrace Online and community gaming more. I think that it could be possible for HOME's release date to coincide with LBP's release date or to follow shortly after because LBP will be heavily integrated with HOME and it would make a lot of sense to me if Sony released both within the same time frame.
erm! how do you say that in Japanese? oh I've got it, sweet home Osaka !!!
Su wee to Ho u mu Ala ba u ma!!!
WOHOO home!!!!!! Here I come!! *put on a mask*
but wut about the states?
I think us Americans will be homeless for awhile. ='(
We will be homeless for awhile (3-4 months MAX) WHILE X-BOTS ARE HOMELESS FOREVERRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR RRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR! LOL! Until they get MOTEL 360
lol That was funny, I'd give you a bubble, but it seems I've already given you one earlier today, shame. =/
Doesn't fall technically run right the way up to one day before December? We could still be waiting a while. Hope not.
after we get home what else are we going to want from sony? thanks sony for giving us a good ending to this year
will it be region specific? iv got a euro ps3 but i play on us so cant i download the us home?
I think i might die if i don't get it this year
Home will Hit EU and US on the same day, so theirs no reason while it won't hit Asia on the same day, also HOMES console locked, not PSN locked meaning you'll have to DL it from you're country's PSN Store. Also, the latest info I have on a launch is along sind Bioshock.
don't worry guys...i no home will be here this mouth.
who is worrying? Disagree because i think we have all come to the reality that it won't come in the next 2 days [email protected]
Another reason to buy a Sony! http://www.squidoo.com/doug...
@themyk - 4.2 - october brings socom, bioshock, and littlebigplanet, november has R2, then some sweet little multi plats, then killzone in feb. home sometime before the end of the year. man i can't be happier. true that my friend but, what about our two racers with clones attach to them? wipeout HD> fatal enertia and Motorstorm 2> pure. those two games are also coming out this fall as well u know lol. also blu ray will be attending this party as well, in their transformer sept 2, iron man sep30th, hand c.o.c.k, incredible hulk oct 14, matrix: ultimate collection oct 14, zohan, and the dark knight dec 9 suits. all coming this fall as well. but back to the games now. im pretty sure M$ will have rockstar launch their exclusive dlc on killzone 2 launch time, but sony also got sucker punch making sure, M$ doesn't try to ruin the party with the launch of infamous of course. also the agency, afrika and a slew of Ncsoft ps3 exclusive MMorgs are also set to join the party as well. fallowed by heavy rain, twisted metal, wardevil, god of war 3, syphon filter and many more. team ico project and white knight chronicles, tears of blood, MAG, Uncharted 2: on the trail of Atlantis. should also attend the affair as well. a few others i forgot to mention but well you know the deal.
Reminded me why i chose ps3 over the box Bubble up
This will probably happen here in the states within the next few weeks then. Welcome HOME fellow PS3 gamers
Damn, I cant believe it's almost here after all these months and years delays lol. Cant wait.
Betty was wrong then she said 29th which is tomoro. .... (sigh) Damn You Betty.
Many people thought that PlayStation Home won't be coming out this year but things look different this time. This can still be delayed but that fact that they're setting a date should mean something.
