A video of the new Playstation 3 Home in action. Hosted by Gametrailers.com
That was simply amazing. If it actually works as well as they say, Sony's knew community will go unrivaled for a very long time. The interaction and the match making and the .... etc. etc. so much offered. But i won't get to hyped yet. I must see it in action personally. If it does work like in this video, it would truly be better that what XBox Live offers now.

I'm sorry but I think the "home" idea is the gayest thing ever. Do you get to decorate you lil home with flowers and fancy curtains??? Well atleast the females will get a kick out of this. Good for them.

3 - Why wait...?
For something you can have, NOW! ...Oh yea, cause it's gonna blow the 360 away...just like Sony's 'worldwide' launch, just like the PS3's launch titles, just like the games and the system itself and just like the Playstation network! : 0
GaMr: So tell me guys.... How does foot taste. Would you like some ketchup with that?
I haven't been this excited about a console for a LONG Time. Gamr this is definitely the hottest news for the year until PS4 is announced.
Now you Gay Sony Fanboys have Gay little Houses to go hangout and do your thing!!! LOL KIDDING!!!!!!
It does look pretty Sweet tho!! Props to Sony for Finally making something worth having for the PS3. Now, let's see if they can actually deliver. Hmmm?!?
It's definitely a cool concept, but more of an MMO than an online gaming hub. I don't see how this is going to help me have my "unified" friends list and hop online to play multiplayer games quickly.
On that screen where they placed a chair it listed furniture that was "owned" does that mean that this "free" service will require tons of micro-transactions in order to have anything in this world. That's how all the PC versions of this are so it wouldn't surprise me, have fun in debt hell.
I think i just pee'd myself
Looks really cool, playing your music to others....wouldn't that be illegal though.
Yeah, with the RIAA now cracking down on internet-radio and fair-use policies, who knows how that'll work.
F*ck the RIAA.
You only have legal issues when the file is moved from it's original source and shared entireley, not just listened to by others. The same way you can legally share songs from one ZUNE to another, but only for a couple of days before the temporary license expires
I was about to post it :P
This... this looks f'in incredible. I wasn't expecting such a thing when the rumors came out.
Btw, there's also a video of an example of game Home will allow you to play (shortly shown in the Home trailer)
Here it is.
That game doesn't really look like much fun. It seems like it was just built as a platform to show of advanced textures and lighting. Looks pretty.... but also pretty boring
Didn't like that game. Looks cool. I can see the arcade games working but why would anyone waste time walking around on this instead of playing games is beyond me.
AWESOME!!! simple awesome. Where did I left my jaw?? Ohh the floor
That is the most interactive online experience I have ever see in my life....They may have the best online service out there if thye do it right...which looks possible
That sure beats the friends list on my xbox 360.
Indeed, my friends list is nothing compeared to this. (just preordered my Ps3 in the UK)
I wonder if Microsoft with no follow suite and use the money from XBOX Live subscription to develop it :P Now we know why sony were quite 2006 :P ahah.. this is to good to be true... BUT ITS TRUE! hah
I thought it was phantasy star for a second.....but its cool how you can have your own house and decorate it (ala test drive unlimited).
That is, indeed, VERY cool. And they have unlimited potential to add to the virtual world, as well. I wonder what kind of things can come later . . .
That looks freakn cool!!!!
That was pretty cool. I wonder if games that in development currently will be using this or will it be a 2008 thing.
this is it!!
That looks really, really cool, and its great news for the PS3's online experience, though personally I don't think I'll be using it that much, or at least to the extent that they show you can. I will be using my PS3 to just play games I imagine, so maybe hop into 'Home', find some people for a multiplayer game, and hop out.
I really don't think the phrase "infinitely more exciting than anything on other consoles" was necessary either.
considering all the slander they get from M$
GDC 07: Killzone Debuts in July
Worldwide Studio head, Phil Harrison confirms major E3 appearance.
by Jeremy Dunham
March 7, 2007 - As a "special thanks" for the media that attended his pre-GDC conference last night, Sony Computer Entertainment's President of Worldwide Studios, Phil Harrison unveiled the first in-game footage of Killzone ever seen. However, we did see it with a few caveats.
"Please remember that we're showing you this footage as an example of our technology," stated Harrison before running the b-roll. "Keep that in mind when looking at it and don't think of it as looking at the game directly."
The technology that Phil was referring to is "PlayStation Edge," a new advanced graphics tool that's meant to simplify PS3 development. The package comes complete with RSX performance analyzer and GCMReplay.
Following his brief statements, the footage played on multiple HD screens and showed off both ISA and Helghast soldiers blasting the bejesus of each other. The best way to describe how the aftermath looked is that it's "BLACK" for the next generation. There was a high level of destructibility as the bullets flew, and some seemingly-purposeful moments of slowdown (as in bullet-time, not a technical hitch).
As the footage came to a close, the word "E3" flashed on the screen followed by Harrison's confirmation that July is when we'd see the game next.
I was shocked to see how envolved this is. It is way beyond my expectations I had when this news leaked before. I am plesantly surprised.
AND IT IS FREE.
a little phantasy star
a little nf2k
a little sims
a little second life
a little mii from wii
a little xbox live
sony is about to kick some @SS.where are all the haters?i don't see you mart.
you might have to pay for some things for "HOME",but sony just let out the first WAMMY.where's the GAY comments?it just leaves you speechless.................
this is why sony is the leader that has to be dethrowned.not following,leading the way.
no offense to 360 gamers but MICROSOFT WILL HAVE TO OFFER LIVE FOR FREE
Ok... so im an Xbox Fanboy.. thats obvious by my posts...
But this just sold me on a PS3... This is the sort of thing they needed at launch but this is also the sort of thing that would bring me to buying their system. I want a record of what ive done, I am a stats whore . The video does not show much of how they will keep track of all that but I am very impressed with the vibe of this video..
Its not at all like LIVE and I dont want live to be like this.. I enjoy the instant satisfaction of Achievements and how you can compre with friends... so I like how Sony didnt just copy the idea... they went in a new direction.
Color me impressed.. and thats not easy for me to say since I normally cant stand the crap that Sony spits out.
That's very big of you and I respect that. Giving credit where credit is due. Positive feedback for you!!!
I'm not a fanboy of either. They both make great products.
lets just see how it is, when it's released.
We all know Motorstorm/Killzone ordeal, but saying that, it does look fresh as fu**.
looks like sims of the future.
This Looks AMAZING!
i can see chat rooms becoming a thing of the past.
Now link this up to my PSP and we are Golden
Watching the keynote live now loving it hopefully you guys will see a much more detailed version of home from the keynote, the video rocks tho!
Linkage to PSP confirmed! Phil's going through all the premium parts for the house :)!
How are u watching it?
And S@REW it everyone else has been taking shots at sony its about time the took a few back!
where are you watching it?
You'll be able to own pets, jacouzi confirmed and trophies.
Digital buildings in the world to do with certain games like temples etc...
AMAZING! lol i like the little dig at live- 'infinitely more exciting than any other consoles'. but yeh, kudos to sony, looks sweeeet
I have to say this looks really good. I think it looks like a cross of Sims and Second Life. Plus seeing as Second life brings so many different things from real life into the game this could really be a big hit.
Holy Moly! That is exciting. Wow I can meet some of you guys!!! And invite you back to my house for some bears and a play on some cool looking coop game. And we can invite some Ladies toooooo. Sweeeeet. Very impressed. Tickled me pink that has. Looks like I'll have to get properly connected with fast broadband now....Hurrah!
...but Sony is the king of broken promises. IF, and it's a big IF, Sony actually does what it claims, this could be really great. While it's nothing new (almost completely borrowed actually), it looks to take a bunch of good things and put them all together in a really nice package. Personally, I don't think I'd spend much time with it as I'm more into gaming, but I applaud Sony for finally going in the right direction on something. However, the comment 'infinity more blah blah blah than other consoles' makes me worry that this is just more Sony hype. Additionally, if this turns out to be what is claimed in the video, it's going to need a fair amount of servers, which cost money. I'm also afraid that if it's free, it will not only be low quality, but take an extremely long time to actually develop into something. Here's to hoping, though.
Will believe it when I see it. It does look promising, though.
I think its fair to say that it will be funded by advertising.
and by people who buy premium products (Not sure why anyone would actually want to do that but i sure many will!!!)
I just hope they don't plaster ads everywhere to pay for it. That would ruin it.
Thats right Dusk fight with your last breath.
Cmon Captain Tuttle, you cant expect there not to be product placement and still want it to be free. Its a fact of life. And i can see people lining up to have their products advertised, if it keeps it free its fine with me.
Why is he being a fanboy? Those are legitimate questions. Blindly believing everything a company tells you, THAT'S being a fanboy.
Of course you're right about ads. But it can be overdone. Some flashing neon Coke signs in windows like in the real world? Hell, that'd make it MORE immersive. Pop-Ups everytime you walk into a room? Not so much. I guess I should have been clearer. Sorry.
this is quite impressive to say the least. i really really really am feeling giddy just thinking about this. the possiblity are just magnificent. they are really beging to show why 600 dollars isnt bad for a gaming console, with all these features that are coming it's making it more appeasing and wanting to many. they now need to get this out to the public and show, that the ps3 is the console you want in your "home". this just about did it for me. i'm even more glad i'm a sony fan now than i ever was. now sony follow through and dilever like you have been doing
Almost like a game to itself. The only thing I can find wrong with it is that it may get old fast. I like the whole community aspect of it, but most of the time I just want to play a game. Although, I do see this as a good way to meet new people to play with... I just don't know how effective it will be in the long run. Would this spark the same sort of competition as Live's gamerscore? "Hey, my house has a cooler couch/nicer architecture/etc." I could definitely see myself enjoying this. But I said the same about Sims Online, which got old fast... hopefully they do better than that.
this faking sick ultimate, jesus christ this is well good. Anyone want to come back to my place when this thing is up and running lol.
Got to admit that's pretty sweet ^^ I'm sure it'll work it's just like a MMO but for a console home page. I'll be looking forward to when this is released
that was funny violater.they are grasping for air trying to think up something,anything to pull down great news.
they can't.there's nothing they can say anymore.sony is taking care of it's fans and moving forward with their plans.not for the haters.
Im pretty sure this is how it began,
I think you're right... this has robots taking over the world written all over it. THE END IS NIGH, and Sony is bringing it.
"And lo, thine eyes shall see the world lit by flames,
demons of steel shall rule men with visions of joy,
the sun shall not be seen nor warmth felt by thee,
the name of thine enslaver shall be the same as thy dwelling,
beware of 'home', beware of 'home', beware of 'home'"
i can't believe my eyes. i'm calling everyone to tell them what i just saw. i just came from buying Motorstorm and i haven't played it yet because of this video. this may change the videogame world as we know it.....that is of course if if Sony delivers which i think they will.
GaMr, you just got my vote for Best News of the Month......or year or whatever the hell its suppose to be, great news.
Video is amazing. But I aint paying £425 for that!
I'm an Xbox fan but, I got to admit that this Sony Home is awesome... good for you Sony fans... XD
I believe they will succeed. They have ton of experience in MMORPG experience from SOE. Everquest, Everquest II, StarWar galaxy and Planetside. This is probably pretty piece of cake to them.
Cant wait for this to happen .. looks amazing .
its like an awesome sims type MMO, im very impressed
much better than wii,s playskool atempt
I really hope that Sony's version of "Achievements" is integral to the Home experience (i.e. completing game Achievements gives you Home currency to purchase virtual items)
Just wondering as HOME seems to be an Application correct? Something you will have to go INTO before seeing anything that it offers. How does this work if your friends are NOT in the HOME and are in other games or just on the cross media bar.
My point is... will HOME be more like a Game within a game or just a matchmaking system? I dont think the options HOME offers will be available to things outside of home. YEs you can launch with friends into games and thats cool.. but how do you get your friends together at the same time through the PS3 dashboard?
Thats why i think this is more of a matchmaking system than anything that will compete with 360's achievement system. Everything is running at all times on the 360 and thats what makes it a great setup. Home seems to be an application you launch to hang with friends and then go into games from there... which is cool but having to launch a software and hope your friends also do so at the same time might be a pain.
Also their trophys... I have a feeling it will be multiplayer based as in win tournaments or something like that, I dont think they will have standards as in 50 trophys per game or anything like that. So I doubt you will be able to get 50 or more per title... and I think thats what makes the 360 achievement system so great. Being told often while you play through a game that you are achieveing something.... I am interested in the details of sonys plans for their trophy room
I am excited for it but I think it shows that Sony is not trying to copy LIVE and MS should not try and copy this...
Sorry... I guess I'm one of the few that just don't get it. I guess that's fun if you're into the whole SIMS thing.
Ok sounds great, I have a few questions which i havent seen answered:
- will a unified friends list be visable in Home?
- will you be able to see where your friends are in the world?
- when you start a game from within Home, will you exit to Home?
just wondering :)
I am looking forward to this feature when I eventually get a PS3
hmmm interesting, it does seem like a game more than a match making system. kinda seems like myspace/match.com meets the sims (winning formula btw!).
it doesn't excite me too much because i play games not meet new people, if i meet new people i want to chainsaw them. but i can see were some lonely dorks would be getting all excited about it. just remember most people who buy the ps3 are dudes no matter what character they have.
just remember everyone, although it does seem cool and will be at first it will end up like halo 2 multiplayer, a bunch of 12 yr olds running around cussing etc.. the problem with freedom is there will be a ton of people who abuse it and ruin it for alot of other people. i can't wait to see stone phillips and dateline to get ahold of this talking about the dangers of internet preditors with the ps3 now. i did think it was kinda lame when they said you had to pay for certain clothing items, make it all free damn.
i think sony should just do away with the OS that runs everything now and just have Home. that would solve the questions that people have about knowing when friends will be online, matchmaking, and actual usage of this program. of course people that don't have internet access wouldn't be happy, but they couldn't use Home anyway so who cares.
IT IS NOT XBOX LIVE.so to compare the two is mute.sony doesn't want to go the route of microsoft.they might use some ideas from nintendo and microsoft,but it just won't be the same thing.you want live,play your 360 or get a 360.but it is not live.
i do see some good questions.it does look like an application.but it seems that it will save what you are doing in games offline and online.i also think things will have to be purchased(micro transactions)to have a great place to live in.or hopefully some of your achievements gain you money or points to buy things or you can win stuff for your home.
but to say this is cool is an understatement.sony is taking:
and the great ps3 and putting them together into one great package
rumble(it's back baby)
BC for old games
and creating a future system that will last beyond 5 years.
It's Mii's for depressed people! Nooo! Looks kinda...neat, actually.
