Xi is launching imminently in PlayStation Home, but what is it?
I think something big gonna happen I see this all the time,there are 12 xi videos at ps home X....... CROSS I ...... INTERFACE maybe? I can feel something very cool is coming... anyway,gdc is around the corner
GDC seems like it will be awesome for PS3 owners, I mean so much stuff has been announced it's unbelievable. I'm also hoping for some 360 news.
I wrote the same thing on my blog. People made fun of me for it >.< (What can I say? I was excited! I never said it's TRUE, I was just giving out my ideas.) But so far, it looks like a Home Space for a game. Maybe some completely new features and services Sony is offering? Who knows...
Mabye it pictures or videos in home.
I think it will be a game in Home. It will be a game that requires you to use your Home avatar to go around doing missions/quests. ^_^
I have high expectations for Xi, whatever it is. So, whatever it is, it will probably be disappointing. Hence the flaw of viral marketing this vague...
that video was a complete waist of my time
PlayStation Home meets Quake III Arena =D But yes, looks like an interactive game place, possibly tag or capture the flag (Crosses fingers for Deathmatch).
That's actually a really good idea. Giving Home a free shooter game would get a lot of people to go back in. Home paintball would get me visiting a lot more often. That's probably a bit to difficult (or would be poorly done due to limited budget, etc...unless an advertiser did it), but it could be awesome.
The symbol they show in the video is similar to a letter in the Greek alphabet that is conguous with X in the English alphabet. The letter makes a sound like Xi and is named that way as well. Check out the Wikipedia page if you don't believe me. So based on that it could mean nothing at all. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
That was a weird video!
Agree ^^^^^... It's look like a new futuristic city in Home..... That will be great!!! :)
or I'm going to go crazy!
I just don't care. Home = FAIL
people that pretend they wouldnt care about somthing but then need to say it all the time = fail
If you don't care then why did you feel the need to post that pointless garbage?
Home right now = fail. That's not to say it could do something to get better. I'm not impressed with Home, but I'm NOT going to say I will NEVER be impressed. That would be fanboy talk. Anything in this environment CAN improve. It just depends heavily on the fanboys admitting it's not already perfect and allowing those improvements to take place.
Unless something meets my expectations and gives me what I want, when I want it... then it FAILS! /SARC Home is fine. It's not my cup of tea at the moment, but it's free, it's different, it'll have more features over time... in my opinion, that's hardly a fail. But eh, some ppl can't be pleased.
"What? you can walk around talking and meeting people, play games, change clothes, go bowling and all you do is switch on your PS3? It must be alien!" My Nan doesnt understand it either.
its prob just another home space with....benches to sit on
you can stay still and your character won't be tired , right ?? i mean if you don't realise home is for meeting people ( or maybe you don't want to meet people ) , why don't you deleted the 3gb of space home takes on your Hard drive ... they are bringing content into the home space that's great news
That's great news if the content is worth consuming. If not, we are just going to see it as more wasted development time that could have been spent on something more innovative. I honestly hope for the former, but I have gotten accustomed to the latter.
Xi??? Maybe it's a Room for the xBots??? i.e Xi = Xbot imbeciles [ROOM] ;-D
That Symbol on the Wall Last Night Its in the Main Square Its Says "you Cannot Enter Yet"
its another space on home with a lot of fail.
Look at post 3.1.
Look at how many bubbles you have. 3. You're getting awfully close to 1 bubble. Now go to your user page and look at your comments and try to find out what it is that makes you lose bubbles, then fix it. Kthx.
or when you get to one bubble just create another account and keep doing the hating over and over again for the rest of your meaningful life.
Another post with a lot of fail.
Do any of you think it could be a Home Space for a game Sony hasn't even announced yet? Now that, would be KILLER SWEET.
That video intrigued me and creeped me out at the same time.
I was so looking forward to home, but at the moment is very pointless I feel, not to say I don't think it has potential but at the moment I'll go and say it sucks. But I can see it becoming better. Looking forward to seeing what this is. PS: Don't flame me for saying that, I love PS3, its by far the best system out there, with so much more potential. If u disagree say why first.
the robot like figure at the last part? maybe it has something to do with the rumors about sony making a PS3 robot.
remember those secret messages that were going around a few weeks ago, didnt one of them mention "xi"? EDIT UPDATE: Here this is what I was talking about... http://www.n4g.com/tech/New...
Yeah, still none the wiser about this Xi thing.
Would be cool if they blur the clear distinction between chat-and-nothing-to-do-space and game space. Give people riddles, fun tasks, or whatever to resolve cooperatively, a clever twist with a fine storyline, something Lost-esque, Portal-like, anything. Doesn't need to be zombies running round the chat room, but e.g. an invasion of the chat world would be fun, something that makes Home more interesting. You could then choose between this or the 'just-stand-around-or-sit-on-b enches-and-chat' version. I think that would be interesting and PS3 really deserves an outstanding Home.
i want to say Xi is a train station which allows you to connect with EU and JP home. Im just guessing
damn good guess haha that would be awesome
Then again, it could lead to a new server where everyone can meet. Now that would be interesting as well.
That or a paid "underground."
It's a virtual Dance club!! Full of bubble making machines!! :)
and you can buy drinks for $1.99 and carry them around. Can't wait!!! Edit- even better, a Gentlemen's club!! Pay a little and enter the VIP area!! :)
Hopefully its better than the GTA4 "strip" club :P
I can't wait to find out what XI is, been tracking it for a while now. Here is my theory; 'X' equals closed, 'I' equals Eye...'Closed Eye', 'Eye Closed', Eyes Open...'Eyedentify'. Yeah, I'mm not letting go of the hope of Eyedentify, I think it still exists in some form, too good a concept to throw away also potentially a PSEye seller.
it looks more like superjail
I should sue for copyright infringement! ._.
Make sure Sony makes lots of money from Xi, then sue them 10 years from now. That way you'll get more in the settlement.
Maybe a virtual reality room with booths your avatar can climb into? Then different games that you can play through it. Although as the symbol plastered everywhere had a kind of sinister dripping look to it, and the avatar is seen running on a grainy cctv monitor, maybe its a scenario you can start where home has been invaded and taken over? Whatever it is though it looks interesting so it would be cool to get some stuff to liven HOME up a little.
this looks interesting. they should announce a game in Home.
I've just logged in to Home, and when you walk up to the symbol painted on the wall next to the waterfall in Home Square it gives you an option to teleport, but on pressing X it just says area restricted.
thats the old home square from the closed beta and thats the europe home square i think .... but the train is new never saw it before soo that means they are making something bigger
HOME sucks anyway, i bought a PS3 for games not for some lame crap that takes up my HDD space, its like flipping 'ClubPenguin', imagine popping in GTA4 in your PS3 and then just standing in one spot looking around not doing anything, its basically the same in that sense...Boooooaaaarrrriiiiiinn ngg!!!
home avatars will feel like something is watching them(insert suspense music)
Xi is greek for X, and x is pretty much the standard variable in basic equations. It's a variable, big dip.
another huge waste of time? I think so...
No offense but it does! Only went there twice, and I wont be going back. Sigh I love 360...
Jones Miller is right lol
it would be pretty cool to have a go kart game in home while using your own characters to race in it or even basketball game or soccer, or how bout darts? lol.... beta faster please
Why did I get a strange sense of deja vu watching that video? I'm certain I did'nt see it before, or did I 'hear' it before..... ...whud'deva... :/
Very interesting, I wounder (hope) they announce what all this is at GDC
my guess is that there will be a HOME make-over. Anyone notice everyone's running away from the old home? There was 1 dude left leaving HOME. Just a guess.
It's BETA guys remember it's still in BETA heh
Anyone thought that it might be the full launch of Home and finally away from the Beta
Could be A way to show your home video's in Home. Some sort off You tube ?
now that was uberlame! lol .. Home .. lol
Does anybody know who were the characters that were briefly shown at the end of the clip. I think Xi will be some type of link or transportation device
