PlayStation Home continues to expand, with 24 companies now on board supporting Sony's online platform
The PS3's growing on every aspect! More content. Bigger user base. Better support!
Now this gonna be huge!!! Bigger, Better, more fun!!!!!!
Didn't know they had so many companies till i saw this
Yeah those are a lot of companies :o
Everyone loves their PS3 but does everyone love Home ? I know I sure dont. I think they are fighting a losing battle with Home. I just dont think anyones interested in walking around in a virtual world. I just wish they would continue to work on their XMB. Its so much better and accessible. Home to me just feels like running up a hill carrying a Sack of potatoes. Its a struggle to use. @ Deviant Thats the only reason Sony created Home. To make money, they didnt really think of how boring it is. But if people are willing to pay £1 for a virtual t-shirt then more fool them.
Well I'm sure theirs plenty of people in Home that can disagree with you :). That place is always full and Home isn't for every one ^^
Yeah i love home :), that's where i got my LBP friends :)
and I hate home, I log in once a month on it. So I can agree with you.
"I just dont think anyones interested in walking around in a virtual world" ...you shouldnt think that much :). Nah srsly neither am i using Home all the time but other people do. Sony earned some millions in one months.
My friend, your comment is EXACTLY what HOME was meant for. It's a place to find new friends to game with. That is the real goal of HOME. Too many people treat it as if it's a game. Treat it as what it is, a social platform And for those that say HOME is only about making money because they charge you for items, that is incorrect. If HOME was only there for money, then buying items on HOME would have been MANDATORY. Instead, it's a choice
I thought you sold your PS3 after playing the Killzone 2 demo... a tangled web of lies slowly comes unfurled?
pimp: "I sold my ps3 after playing this demo, so I don't have it anymore." http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... "Gears of War graphics are much much better then Killzone 2." http://www.n4g.com/NewsCom-... mhm :D
Great work guys. Now sniff out the other 1 million liars of N4G
Should be clear by now that pimp614, whythis and agent x are all fan boy's
u can tell all of his comments are negative against the ps3 and positive for 360 do us all a favor and go to the 360 section and let your lies go with you ps3 is stepping up and is moving foward it will be the year of ps3 i saw it my self in 30 minutes at a best buy i saw 4 ps3 get sold and one of the guys said he has enough of his 360 breaking down and took a reserve for killzone 2 .
I'm still wondering what the heck they're going to do with Trophies. And Trophy levels? What's the point of that? What do I get for being level 6? Nothing, apparently... @ The gaming GOD: Um...actually, advertising is the other reason (next to $$$). I can't see all these developers signing on to Home just because 'it's a great place to meet people'. Business is still business - it didn't turn into altruism when you weren't looking.
I never said it wasn't A reason. I just said it wasn't the ONLY reason
Hmm lets see Home's cool but ill like log in only when cool new stuff comes out lie when the EA sports lounge and casino and golfing and racing and basketball thing comes out ill be in home for a while plus it wont have lines. They already said their wont be lines.
Still no Square Enix...
I do expect they'll try to be there eventually since they've been losing profits like nobody's business.
Yep, no SE! You have Hudson and IREM, but no SE! But yeah...wouldn't hold my breath!
It's too bad, I would love to see something like a Home flavored Gold Saucer with FF mini games or something. Ah, dreams..
Well,i love home...
can't wait for the new content :) i hope it's more game spaces than items... we need more interactive activities on Home
I can also point out that lotus one of the home community managers was hinting at more home love next week. i'll go get the link "IGN: Chris, why was Home something Capcom wanted to support? Chris Kramer: Home is an interesting way to stay connected with players and fans outside of a game experience. Home allows us to provide a touch point for Capcom fans as well as open a new path to reaching other gamers IGN: How do you plan to do that and with which titles? Chris Kramer: We're looking into several different possibilities right now. Currently, we have plans for Street Fighter IV and Resident Evil 5. We're still in the early planning stages, but we're working towards having avatars for both games, a themed environment for RE5 and items for players to put into their Home "apartments". At TGS in October, Ono-san, the producer of Street Fighter IV, talked about a Chun-Li Home avatar, and showed some early concepts of SFIV trophies. Takeuchi-san, co-producer on RE5, appeared on the Soyn stage to discuss Home in a broader terms. Right now, there's work being done on a RE5-themed environment, as well as a Chris Redfield avatar IGN: What were some of those terms Takeuchi-san spoke about? I mean, is the goal to have these additions out just before launch, at launch, or after the game is out? Is Capcom approaching this as an advertising tool or something to keep people involved after a game has been released? Chris Kramer: The goal is to have our Home stuff ready by the launch of both games. SFIV is out on February 17, while RE5 is coming to North America and Europe on Friday the 13th, 2009 [in March]. We're not looking at Home as traditional "advertising." Instead, we view Home as a unique way of building, maintaining and growing a community. For the hardcore fans, hanging out in a Resident Evil area in Home will be cool, in the same way that they'll be excited to run around Home looking like Chris Redfield. For those PS3 players who haven't picked up RE5 or perhaps don't know much about the series, it's a great way for us to showcase some of the themes and imagery from the game" http://ps3.ign.com/articles...
Can someone tell me what games support in Home Game launching? I'll reward bubbles! Thanks, cause I can't find a list.
game at this moment in time is Warhawk. From what I've heard (rumour), support for other games will be introduce by the end of the summer. And, I've also heard that Sony is going to really make the big advertising push for Home next Christmas season (again only rumour). Take my comments with a grain of salt please, I'm just being honest.
Yep, Square Enix inconspicuously absent. No surprise, no support.
Impossibible! The PS3 is supposed to be ded! :o But seriously, awesome news. :3
Home is great if you're trying to learn new languages. You can chat with real people and you can tell who knows what because each different coloured speech bubble stands for a different language. I don't use Home every day but when I do I have fun. It's not a game. It is something that lets you socialise with other PS3 owners out of game, but still virtually. I still think it's pretty cool.
Oh yeah. This is just further confirmation to the delusional Xbot butt-buddies that Home is a certified flop! More third-party support and increased expansion of an online service like Playstation Home are all symptoms of a flop, right Xbots?
Thats great news =] It has been a long time since I entered home(my connection sucks =P)Anyway,that should really get more people to use home.
Nice. I know I'm probably being impatient and Home's only been out a little bit, but speed it up a bit. I'm not sure what exactly, but Home needs something in order for me to pay attention more to it more. Also, the EU Home needs more fleshing out.
Can Prinny costumes be too far behind?
someone on another forum keeps moaning about HOME all the time. i noticed that he keeps saying that all he does is play chess every day and nothing else... well, in that case, clearly he is enjoying HOME. that's what he enjoys doing and that's what he does on a daily basis. it's a social site just like N4G. what do you do here? type... er... type... but people still keep coming back for more
