After reading this, I have to reconsider my take on telling people that the PS3 crowd are more mature. lol
Yeah a lot of weirdos have come out from the shadows, revealing themselves through PS Home. I just laugh at them.
You're guaranteed to get desperate pervs hitting on you if you use a female avatar. Always happened in the closed beta. I don't respond to people or accept friend invites when I'm on one of my female characters.
Click over to the male avy when you get hit on by some perv. From what I hear, it is perv repellant when a chick whips out a male avy with a fat gut and mullet. ;-)
I've got a couple guy avatars, a "hot" female avatar, and a really ugly fat chick avatar. If someone comes up and starts dancing at me, I usually switch to the fat chick.
i find 2nd life to be full of psycos ,pervs etc.Ive never been there,so what I know is from here,n4g.Now,I hope Sony doesnt get on that negative hype.Home is so diffrent,its COMPLETLY different in fact.I dont want people to think Home is some pedo heaven.And Sony,you better start throwing the ban hammer at perverts and pedophiles.etc. P.s as quick as you were deleting LBP levels ;)
Z'omg their be perverts on home...o___o!? I--I can't log on this service anymore!! All joking aside it was funny in closed beta, but now...I seriously don't know what to think being that it's open beta. Problem will more than likely be worse, but perhaps still funny at the same time?
Exactly my sentiments. Excellent blog post. Home is, in a single word: meh. ..Precisely what I expected. Now, if only they'd taken a hint from LBP and made the Home apartments something for the user to design instead of decorate...
I do see that a ton of people will most likely end up being kicked out of HOME as you can report users. A lot of the guys there just don't know how to act around females. But then again the young ladies in the closed beta thought it was funny to get these looser types to follow them around. Funny, I know. I give it a week before people start complaining about Sony kicking them to the curb.
i made exact copies of my friends with tiger woods home creation tool just seems lame and looks nothing like me, and the lack of clothing is a joke there should be an option to add words/sentences to the quick responce menu they should have added some water sports / pool volly ball / jet skis / and a shooting range and a virtual zoo with different things happening at different times and a giant football pitch with cars and a giant ball i know its a beta but i thought sony would have set there sights a bit higher
...considerably over the next year or two so you may get some of your wishes. However, I would like to say that the engine used for Home Ten Pin Bowling is pure and utter crap. Why did they not have a VIP room that leveraged off the High Velocity Bowling engine for those who purchased it. The one used in Home is about as good as the ones you get on low end mobile phones. Other than that Home does look good but its not much fun at this stage.
LOL. great blog post. made me laugh. i think Home has its potential, i just hope Sony play it right.
LOL...this is the same with any online multiuser environments. You're gonna get the pervs and the guys who pretend to be girls (hell, i've even done that once!). I havent tried Home yet, but unless theres tons of things to really do on there, then what the author wrote is pretty much what to expect.
