Locust Star. A Home Community Specialist gives a update on future plans for Home.
Wow ! Some seriously good news! Picture frames coming,more music,more avatar gear,plenty of game spaces.And EA sport centre coming sooner then expected? wha? wha? wha? /Excited Still no t.v's or stereo's for the apartments tho :(
"A proverbial boatload of game spaces - including spaces for Warhawk, SOCOM, Resistance, and many, many more (we’ll announce more spaces in the coming weeks)... Of course, you’re all aware of the EA Sports Complex. But let’s just say that is coming sooner rather than later. And it’s cooler than you imagined. These spaces will usher in the next phase of Home. They will begin to utilize this uber-powerful platform’s true capabilities. We’re talking unlocking items in the games you play from Home (and vice versa), mini-games that take full advantage of the Sixaxis controller, game launching integration. The whole shebang! " NOW THIS The Home I am talking about!
Wow very nice!
omg im soo siked omg im happy
I want my own pool table, bowling ally, chess board etc. Not a barbecue that is purely decoration.
I can get a stripper pole for my apartment. How can such a b!tchen pad not have one?! Everything else sounds really cool though.
only the beginning... HOME will be a completly different place by this time next year. I think we will be looking at something that just about everyone will enjoy in the future. Picture frames did exist during the earlier beta. I was thinking they removed them to keep people from putting inappropriate pics in. Game launching also did exist in the earlier beta for all games. So I am thinking when these things are added back HOME will be one of the best extra features of the PS3...

Also he said is not only US but Eu too ^^
You do understand Sony thinks all you ps3 owners are a bunch of sissy's who want to run around in a virtual home buying virtual furniture now you do understand don't you. How old are you do you need a virtual doll to run around with to dress it up. Seriously droids wake up your being laughed at.
Funny you mentioned dressing up a virtual doll. How did you dress up your 360 Avatar by the way?
He probably dress up like a girl.
will a mod please remove his comments so my feelings can be unhurt? i mean i could ignore his comment, or ignore him, but i would rather have a mod try to protect my feelings for me. i would report him, but what if my report is ignored? then my feelings would be more hurt! oh please, please delete his comments so i can live my life!
home will huge. it will be the next level of online everything is becoming in full circle now home update,spaces+game launching+KILLZONE 2 OMG PS3 WILL BLOW US AWAY CAN YOU FEEL THE STORM
i agree i can only imagine what home will be like a year from now.
I'm hoping some of that "very very soon" means soemthing for tomorrow... and Killzone II HOME Space in time for it's launch.... AMD SOCOM Home Space too?!?! *spazes out with information and excitment over load*
freakin freakin happy like freakin happy
have a reason to get on home again
yea i haven't really touched it, for me its only good when i want to play a good game of chess or bowling or pool, other than that its still a beta with not too much to do yet, sony got me f***** up if they think im gunna pay my money for a grill or a teddy bear. : /
I i dint't read anything about party systems/party chat or cross game chat. Thats disappointing. I had high hopes for home but then they removed the best feature home had, which was the proximity voice chat, then I realized that all of home could be experienced in 10 minutes. Hopefully these spaces and rooms will add some much needed entertainment to home.
"See, we weren’t lying when we said we were going to make good on our word to you all. We appreciate your patience while we make the final tweaks to ensure that all of this is smooth as can be. And we appreciate you diehards keeping the faith while the naysayers pretended like the Beta launch was the be-all, end-all of Home. No way, no how." ------- I'm overjoyed to hear that major progress is around the corner - I've been doubtful about Home's value as an addition to my XMB, let alone a social network, but I would love to be proven wrong. And that's a valuable contribution of 'naysayers': we provide a foil for the unbridled optimism of the blindly brand-loyal consumer and give developers and companies a good reason not to get lazy. Just because I bought a PS3 does NOT mean I will blindly accept that Sony is infallible in everything they do, and happily consume everything they are pleased to spoon-feed me. Because while many people point out that Home is a free service; I also note that over a million dollars has already been made in profits from the Home stores - from a beta, no less. Home was never an altruistic enterprise - corporations are not charities and they will only give you something for free if they think they can make money doing it. So anyone considering Home as though it's some kind of reward to loyal Sony fans (and this Home manager obviously wants to frame it that way) clearly isn't a fan of rational thinking. It's another product, plain and simple; and if doubting its relative value to me as a customer makes me a naysayer, so be it.
that guy seriously .... home and very nice but the sony take long to do it, and also had plans are now nearing the end of the ps3 ... home: fail (and sad to say this but the truth)
The only thing that is failing is your english please stop commenting.
you can't judge on home yet home cannot be reviewed it gets updates constantly am afraid you will eat your words(sorry for the expression) 4 or 5 months from now still it's a DAMN BETA
It's just the end of year 2. The PS3 has another 5 years to go before the PS4 starts making it's waves.
Your Grammar: Fail
Very exciting indeed. So how's your stiff avatars boys?
i didnt know that that home is fail, especially when there are a bunch of people buying fake clothes,which sony made $1million out of it in a month.
I don't care what they do with home, if they plan to charge good money for it, I wont be interested. Now, if half of this stuff is actually free, maybe there'll be something to it...
Why are you complaining? At least home looks cool unlike some other companies avatar system.... Once the EA sports complex comes on like maybe this month...everybody Company will flock to the PS HOME to create spaces...it will be like MySpace...
The Avatar system is free, though. Free is the thing that a lot of PS fanboys state that makes PSN better, so why is it that Avatars being free doesn't count?
"It's coming down the road." announcement.
but still its news wich we havent got latley besides the EA Room.
when can we get a better party system with game invites and stuff, that alone will make psn be on par with XBL
I would pay $1 for it.
Obviously not the whole movie but something is coming and he ruled out just trailers so it should be something beefy.
Hopefully sports themed outfits will be available soon. I want my Liverpool FC alt. black jersey in Home. Make it happen and Sony will get even more of my money.
This is a huge update and the year has just started, Home will grow into something awesome. I just wish they would add in a fishing place like in Zelda, and some kind of collectible fighting game, like cards or bugs or little monsters.
Home is da sh!t!!!...yeah, my home that I live in. Playstion home on the other hand is just plain ole sh!t
ouY kcus ssa ta ginllort.
And you suck a$$ at stalking. You've like commented a few times about me right after me on a few articles...imma get a restraining order on your a$$
Aweome sony im ready for some awesomeness, yea screw everyone that the year of the playstation was 2007 or 08, 08 was the taste of whats to come and now 2009 is here and well be getting our $600 meal, see they keep there promises just people get all ansy pansy and cant grow up and learn to be patient, got to wait for your checks every week or 2 weeks or maybe month to have money right, sony will deliver, EVerything SONY and PS3 killzone, Uncharted, infamous, GT5, God OF F CKINg WAR, AND EVERYTHING I CANT THINK OF BAECAUSE SONY IS JUST OFFERING TOOOOOOOOO MUCH THIS YEAR.
Why go Live why you can use Home and be friends with people who aren't creepy and weird and who aren't all mouth breathers.
Awesome news, I don't use Home much right now but always knew the addition of content would spark more interest with me. Looking forward to seeing how this stuff turns out.
