If this is true then home just lost 1,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 cool points
Sony have made alot of withdrawns lately.... first the transfer and recording isssue in PlayTV and now this ? i mean comon.. wtf..
I just got my US Home Beta invite a few minutes ago. They said they liked my wall paper. Check your emails you may already be in.
I didn't even know that those were major promised features lol. It's kinda obvious that they would get rid of them because it could easily lead to piracy.
They just gained them for me, since I just GOT IN!!!! See you in Home. PM for my PSN.
I think Sony is doing the right thing if this is true. This will keep Home from becoming a "den" of perverts and pedophiles, which it surely would have become. Although they promised these features, and are now breaking that promise. I respect them for taking the high road. Judging by the demented behavior of the Sony fanboy population that has infected this site(imo 100x worse than Live is allegedly). I think they made a good decision.
Really? I room with a guy who plays on live constantly and if he's an example of people on Live I think I'd rather stick around here. I dont think we have any racists here or on PSN for sure. Although COD 4 does attract alot of annoying people...
Didn't they say that you won't be able to do that for home just yet. If they do take them out then they will most likely up security and have "cops" or mods. Fanboys only fight with other fanboys so ya I guess that makes you the fanboy thats not on sony's side.
Quit fishing for responses from sony fans.
@Bangladesh, You ain't fooling anybody with your comments. Open zone is ===========> Yeah, follow the line.
THIS BETTER NOT BE TRUE. this is one of the biggest features i was looking forward to for the ps3. i want to share music and videos it would be like a virtual youtube. oh well the new xbox live experience looks cool, guess its time to sell my ps3. disclaimer:would never sell my ps3 for an xbox.
Is it that hard to realize that Sonarus is an xbox 360 "fanboy"? Looking at his previous posts all he does is bash Sony, the PS3, and it's games. It's no surprise he would post something like this.
Am I the only one who can't read the site properly? Could anyone fill me in on what features were cut?
What I understood about it, is that you will no longer be able to use content other than what is on the psn store. Hence you won't be visiting peoples "homes" with "Gay Cowboy 9" playing on their virtual Bravias, or listening to "Confession's of a Middle-Aged Crack Addict" on a virtual sony stereo.
u fail again!! u r most probably bloodmast,theMART and other that we dont know!! i mean come on where did bloodmask go?? he is on this site 24/7 posting news so its no surprise that he will make new account to unleash his fanboy thought on ps3!! u r a oure 360 fanboy so stop with that [email protected] acting and show ur real self!! u wont get any bubbles by trying to act normal! on topic: well if they will remove some features that could ruins HOME experience and with them, other wise am not!! but we dont need to worry, in the beta and final version we can always demand them for new features, its not like they cant add new features any time they want! so if there is anything missing the people that got the invites should demand them from sony as a feed back, and on the final version we shall get more features!! HOME will only grow bigger by the time along with LBP
Bangladesh might have just grown old of the same typical fanboy response center answers. At least he's trying to prove himself, and it's true, just like the big scandal of X rated icons on XBL -- this could pose a problem for family entertainment. What's to stop a 16 year old kid from coming into my apartment where me and a few of my buddies are crackin open a few virtual brewskies chillin in my hot tub watchin a nice Cap'n Stabbin video on my 42" Bravia LCD Widescreen tv if I invited him in? I'm sure his parents wouldn't be too pleased.
these arent the most important features, but wtf, can we at least get music?, thats wht we were promised, god, phil needs come back and sho these fools how its done
Being in the BETA they do have a music zone with real music. Although the selections are very limited right now I can see it being like a dance floor in the future... I don't know about actual streaming of music off the harddrive...
Why should we be forced to listen to what they want us to listen to? I still don't understand how streaming music off your harddrive is a security concern...
Lol, Home fails. It begins.
i hope ur xbox gets repaired soon and ull finally stop trolling :)
I wasn't even thinking about those two things they said that might?/will be dropped!!! ;-D No one heard of 'Copyright Laws'??? (Hmm...maybe not!!!With all this File sharing and stuff on the internet!!!) ;-D 'HOME' will be BRILLIANT!!! ;-P POOR POOR xBot Lemmings...HOMELESS ;-D
jealousy is a Bad medical condition go see a Doctor. On topic. Sharing Music / Movies taken out? Sure its Most likey to do with "Copy rights" so meh..its a legal thing....Oh Noes!!!! but Home is still going to Be a killer Ap for PS3 Retards...err Xbots. Just like the Kids err brainless Xbots like 1 that seem to think its the End of the World for Sony...because they Removed features. and M$ has what? Oh Right NOTHING!!!!! Your Homeless. please shut up.
Ha-ha, the 360's going down. Gonna be laughing my ass off when I see some lemmings cry.
I don't why you people could complain about something that's FREE... It's like...getting a free pen or free porn...OMFG IT SUCKS, I HATE YOU; DARN YOU BLACK BAR If anything, complain about LIVE charging 50 USD (lol even to download "demo")...so STFU
You always say that you're going to get a 360.. yet, you always say you want the 360 to fail.. what the fck? @Dyingduck - Just because something is free doesn't mean it should suck(I'm not saying HOME sucks). So what you are saying is, if you're watching porn(one of your examples), and the people weigh in at a total of 1500lbs, you're not going to complain are you? And, remember that is the ONLY video that you can get for free. You're not going to complain, eh?
"You always say that you're going to get a 360.. yet, you always say you want the 360 to fail.. what the fck?" I changed my mind f*ckface and decided on a Wii indefinitely. Even if I had the 360, does that mean that I will have to kiss the very ground Microsoft stands on? Does that mean I'll have to praise Microsoft because it's the best corporation ever to exist? I'm glad I finalized my decision because I would have been a blind ass bot. Holy sh!t, you lemmings are so damn brainwashed that it's mind boggling. Oh, and the fat jokes are getting old...seriously. You don't know what I look like outside the internet so I suggest you take your 360, shine it up reaaaaaaal nice, and shove it up your asscrack. I knew you would say something relating to me-you can't resist taking cheap swipes at me. It shows a lot about your character indeed. Bots are very strange creatures...
Reminds of song specially written for juerkin by weird al yankovic. Not gonna name it just one verse... "I got more chin than china town ..." @dying duck With juuken u can get free crablice so go ahead its free cover her face and f..k her big base.
"I changed my mind f*ckface and decided on a Wii indefinitely. Even if I had the 360, does that mean that I will have to kiss the very ground Microsoft stands on? Does that mean I'll have to praise Microsoft because it's the best corporation ever to exist? I'm glad I finalized my decision because I would have been a blind ass bot." Yo, what the fck that btch be talking bout.. Ya sure as hell be layin yo fat ass down for Sony ta walk all ova ya big ass! ha "Oh, and the fat jokes are getting old...seriously." is he gettin to ya? aww you poor baby.. you gonna go cry some more..? ha but you right.. they be gettin as old as dem rrod jokes huh.. ha
Don't mind them juuken. They are only sad that the only time they came in contact with female genitalia, was when their mothers squeezed them out.
If something is not delayed its canceled.
This home thing has been one debacle after another. First a delay then another delay then another delay then no video sharing then no music sharing will there ever be an end to the Home disappointments? Come on Sony... wake up and smell the coffee!
yeah, sadly you can take out videos in home :( .... But really not music how can that be bad ?? dont take that out
How could they allow "sharing music" anyway wouldnt that be the same as peer-to-peer networks like bittorrent and limewire, just think of the lawsuits Sony really shouldnt make promises they obviously cant keep
Example "IPTV will be available this January (2008)." Where is Iptv now? "We will continue to support and make games for the original xbox and won't abandon our fanbase when the 360 hits release" Name 10 games that came out for the original xbox after the 360 came out. "We won't abandon support of our games" Tell me, how much support has Shadow Run had.
OMG SOMEONE ACTUALLY GETS IT! lol Seriously though M$ really let me down with SR! It was the only real competitive game on the 360 (and if someone says Halo then you really don't get good gaming). Way to totally let a community down M$! On topic though: I think that by them axing these features is not a big deal because you will see that once they find a way to use only PSN Movie content this feature will be back on. That's a promise!
Well by "sharing" I hope they just mean sending the actual files from 1 person to another...I mean I hope we'll still be able to stream music and video off our hdd, those were the 2 features I was hyped for, come on Sony don't drop the ball here...
We have innof s#it to deal with its just a rumor.
? It's news/rumour. Whether you like the content or not. Breaks no rules = approve.
Breakes duplicate story rule = not approve http://www.n4g.com/ps3/News... people should really USE the duplicate search that is MANDATORY before posting news
it was too good to be true! I had my worries about these two features from the start. Way too many hoops to jump through to make that a reality. -Black
The first thing I said to myself is no-way that will actually be there... if you could upload stuff from your hard drive and anyone could watch it, then what's to stop people from uploading all types of stuff that they shouldn't be..
Exactly. For one thing there would probably be porn flying around everywhere. Something you can already get a ton of the PC. To many kids with PS3's. File sharing music is illegal I don't know how they thought this would work. I still think home will be great.
There is plenty of ways to actually stop illegal stuff from floating around..
Over promise and under deliver.
Yep that's microsofts motto alright. http://forums.gametrailers....
no... Microsoft is promise crap and deliver crap Sony is more like over-promise and under-deliver, but still deliver something 10x better than what MS does there we go, fixed
So...where's IPTV and Alan Waitathon? IPTV is still waiting for a provider and Alan Waitathon was lost in action since...2005? And Microsoft promised you a working console with allllll these games and allllll these features! ...Instead, they gave you crap.
OMG that post was epic man, i never seen so many lies together of microsoft representatives saying whatever come from their @sses to dish another company, thats why they are hated globally, but thx god cos vista sucked, google is eating that crappy company away, and apple crush the zune and Sony will crush their puny 360(not that is not being crushed by the wii right now)
CanadianDruggie: Funny many of those were comments and not promises and many of those were actually true. To think some PS3 tard had the time to go thru and compile that just shows how little gaming you people do. Should I really go and compile a list of all the crap $ony has said? Things like "people will work 2 jobs to buy a PS3", "next-gen doesn't start until we say", "games will be in 4D", "rumble is last-gen". Crap I could trump that list with their 2006 E3 press conference alone. So face it: $ony overpromised and undelivered. So why don't you stop trying to deflect this failure and just accept it like a good fishhead. $ony loves you lemmings. Juuken: I'm going to call you two-face from now on. Ms. I want to get a 360 but bash it every change you get and hope it fails. Wow, you named 2 things MS talked about and hasn't happened yet. Alan Wake is being worked on and IPTV I believe is canned. Again: 4D, HOME, 8 USB ports, Dual-HDMI, XMB, Trophies, Cross game chat, fully supported custom soundtracks.. There is a reason they say "this is waiting..." so don't try and deflect it. Nothing more to say to you that hasn't already been said in the above comments about you.

Makes me wonder what else is out there....
Big Cojones, your mental age is about 2 1/2 years right?
Do you really think Sony (or any company for that matter) would all video transfer? If by transfer They mean copying and sending the file to a friend.. I mean Bit Torrent a movie and send it to a friend... No company would allow that.. Now They didnt say Streaming a video to a friend is cut out.. So they are prolly just doing what any other company would do.. Protecting their investment.. I bet you will still be able to stream video and Music.. Also they will prolly have something in place to protect against Dirty movies.. Its also funny to see people complaining like this is all home has to offer or something.. Its 2 features out of 100s maybe 1000s
"The first, sharing video from the HDD may, it is true, bringing a number of abuses...the second, namely the sharing of music between friend..." NO DUH, it's good to be true to begin with.
Also, has anyone thought about the massive possibility of Youtube integrated in Home? Google is slowly integrating with the PS3 nearly every recent update and game. Presuming that; Video piracy problem sorted, legally avoided and censoring of content already done.
I already see the writing on the wall that Google's Chrome will be replacing the PS3's Web Browser...
...is turning out to be more like a dilapidated old trailer.
A rumor explaining that Sony as a respectable electronics manufacturer don't condone piracy on a FREE social service, its the end of the freaking world. Same case with Play TV...I think the BBC wanted iPlayer to actually be used time to time.
Rumors get taken as fact. But that's not new. This is N4G Sounds like some people are mad because Sony might now allow the possibility of piracy through their game console.
why not just have the videos stream only in your room and not downloadable or transferable. Or have it where the only movies you can stream are movies you pay for off PSN or rent. I'm sure those are locked to keep from being copied. This is a huge part of Home and for them to just take it out sucks.
I know everyone will disagree with me but I kind of wish that Sony would save Home for launch of PS4. That way they have plenty of time to get to where there trying to go without having to rush and pull things.
No, I agree, I think it has potential, but saving it for the PS4 and letting it run as part of the OS rather than a standalone application would be a better idea. I think the Home for PS3 will always be in "Beta".
Music, movie, and game companies do not offer up their wares in a timely enough or convenient enough format, so we turn to their warez instead !
Not surprising, those features cannot be done without the possibility of lawsuits. They may still allow your own video content and music for your personal area, you just won't be sharing it via download. It's a bit disappointing but it makes sense, I'm still looking forward to home.
so... no porn?
I'm not to keen on watching Porn with my Friends online!!! ;-D (Not that i know what Porn is!!!) ;)
Whatever, I'll still get Home when it comes out.
a bit of a given since the thing is free... but thanks for sharing :)
Just got it.
