New screenshots of PlayStation Home have been released. With "Closed Beta" running now, and Open Beta in July, more leaks are sure to be on their way up until Home's release this October.
The PS3 can see into the future!
These pics were added 6/5/2007
2007-05-06........ really means May 6th 2007.
that brotha's room is messy, lol crap all over the floor.
looks cool hopefully I will have a PS3 by then.
Did anyone notice that pic where the it said In Game Phone Calls by the end of June!
hopefully i get the invite from sony soon!! october is a long way!! but it be good time to release it that month since a lot of PS3 exclusive games to be droppin around the end of the year..
Now I'm starting to wonder how far they'll keep pushing this concept, such as having an entire Mall with thousands of people interacting. It would require people to have faster internet connections (maybe 8~10 years down the line), but it's a great concept.
Okay, you may have to buy a few knick knacks here and there but overall - FREE.
Home has the potential to be the biggest MMORPG ever - if done right.
A multitude of functionality(buying/selling net estate, building homes or estates, use of vehicles, planes etc) can be added as well as themed worlds(eg Future Home, Jurassic Home, Medievil Heme etc).
Potentially Home could be huge especially if Sony will be continuing with Ps4,5 etc.
I'd love to to build my dream multi-million dollar mansion inside/out fully decorated with impressive gardens etc and show it off and then take a drive around the city in my F360 checking out other's creativity or maybe dropping into a themed Cafe to meet someone new or join in a game of BB at the local courts etc, OR simply fly around - super man style to admire the views. I might even get together with a few friends to do some illegal racing. The possibilities are endless.
Again, if Sony does this right and they really develop and evolve the idea, HOME could be the start of something truly HUGE!!!!
A whole new world or worlds to escape to.
I cant wait to get in.
Say there's like 1 or 2 pool tables in the room, but 20 people wanna play it, hows that work out? And say that same person playing pool just uses the table forever and you can't get them off? Same for the arcade machines. I'd imagine id be playing pool quite...a...lot
looks really good though
I suppose it's the same social cues ;) as in real life. I doubt there are any rules. Maybe if you want to play you put a coin on the table as you would in real life...
there wouldn't be just one lobby, there aren't just a few arcade machines.
I think people have gone too far, they are releasing things that shouldn't have been published, I can see how some people will start to get banned from the PlayStation Network and HOME, too bad for them.
why would that be? Any positive leaks from something that has been announced would not be frowned upon by Sony...only if detailed information, or negative press about it would concern them.
what I mean is that the images should not have been posted specially the ones from the in-depth news. Who ever posted them can be banned permanently from the PlaySatation Network.
Overpriced xbox live R.I.P. 2007.
Yeah I duno how their gona manage people hogging $hit. Better be some kind of block feature, don't want little 12yr olds followin ya and shouting obscenities...
You can delete them from your sight...they merely disappear and enter a different lobby. Or you can report them. Pretty easy...they are beta'ing it...you think they'd forget about these simple things that you one person says, when they have thousands of critical people doing beta for them?
you can totally Ban em?
this seems to be going really well, cant wait for october.......
I've mentioned this before and I think it's a good idea.
To introduce physical contact into the world of home. Where you could actually GRAB people and PUNCH them! So if some guy from another Clan is in the lounge giving you greif, you and your clan buddies can pile on him and kick seven shades of digital sh*t out him.
If I had it my way I would have firearms included in a firmware upgrade and have a massive shoot out in the lobby.
Report people? What are there going to be Sony police avatars walking about?
I dont understand what is suppose to be so exciting about this. So you create a house and an avatar and everything and then you do what exactly? I dont know about you all but I would rather be playing games than playing house.
It's free, you don't have to use it. If you want to play games, then you can put in a game. You want to go online without going into Home, then its online features are right there integrated onto the XMB. You want to download and share content, you don't have to go in there. But if you want a customizable world and avator, and you want to "walk" around with the community and communicate, then it offers a different way to do that. If it's not your cup of tea to walk around, then you don't have to.
