Follow the link for the first video of Playstation 3's Home from the closed beta testing.
lol walking is boring.
Oh watch out for that last step. lol
Where are the girls??
For those who have absolutely no vision or imagination let me explain:
* if done right Sony could create numerous THEMED homes eg, set in the future, on a fantasy world, a city from a Movie, on the plains of Africa, back in historic or prehistoric times. Various creatures and animals can also be added eg. T-Rex in a prehistoric themed HOME or elephants, giraffes etc in Africa HOME.
* a multitude of functionality can be added eg, running, jumping, fighting, grabbing etc. In a prehistoric themed HOME you could go T-Rex hunting or simply go out on safari nature watching or play chicken with the wild life.
* whole communities, towns and cities can be created with streets, parks, and various buildings. There could be land you can buy to build you own dream home on with gardens - and show off, of course. Of course, decorate the inside expressing your personality.
* you could use cruise the streets on foot or vehicle, checking out all the numerous user-created homes & gardens or drop into a various cafes to meet different people or check out someone's business or hobbie shop to see what they have to sell or are into.
* they could make is so sim like that you will have the freedom to either stick to the rules of the cyber-community or be a rebel with a cause. Sneaking in some illegal street racing with fully customizable and functional cars in a Blade Runner themed HOME taking on users who have volunteered or been paid net credits to be Cops. Oh, yeah. I wanna be a boy in blue catching those hoons and giving out some serious net justice.
* in short, this could the start of something that could be huge - HUGE - whether free or not.
If you have an open mind and have an imagination you will know this to be true. So come on Sony, make it happen before Micro$oft copies like they always do.
Bring on the Home and the multitude of homes to follow. I'm looking forward to building a small bungalow in the jungle of a Jurasic themed HOME with a family of T-Rexes and other nasty critters in the back yard. That'll certainly make things interesting when visiting my neighbours. Now, where did I put my sneakers? LOL.
Yeah, where the hell are all the girls?.. I guess PS3 needs Viva Pinata and several other girly titles ;)
Sorry, no boobs for PS3.
Nontheless, pretty cool vid.
Girls don't come with the Beta lol
It was only a matter of time til a vid was leaked from this
there are two videos submitted. only one is posted at the source
that reminds me that 1 time my friend hit on a girl online but it turns out that it was a HE......
( I should have tell u be more careful...but how would that be funny? )
Could be worse, could hit on a girl and find out she's like 12 or something then have to face jail time.
Good times await
Can't wait to get accepted to open beta or if not then can't wait for the full release!
was pretty funny..
"ok this is the arcade..here is this game i never played before...wait yes I have"
Other than the virtual world, what is it that makes Home better and different than xbox live when it comes to playing games online in multiplayer or is it pretty much the same just with the added Sim features?
from what I understand it has all that xxbox live has, plus this sims stuff... oh yeah and its free
Well that sounds like a pretty sweet deal then if it's all going to be free!
Phil Harrison was quoted "we HOPE to keep this service free". Meaning that if the advertising does not pan out this will NOT be a free service. OR...they will hide the cost within micro transactions of items that might have been originally intended to be free. I am sure Sony will do their best to subliminally charge for this service while coming off as the white knight of free online. Bottom line...if you are being charged for ANYTHING online from them (movie rentals and/or avatar equipment) then you are paying for their service and just don't realize it, because they will adjust their costs to make it up.
PSN is NOT the same as Home. Just because PSN is claimed to be free doesn't necessarily make it true for Home. Best to wait for Beta to become Production before making those claims.
Actually he said it would be free. And he hoped it would remain free in the future.
Meaning its free at launch but in time with more features it might become a payable service.
This is nothing like XBOX Live. I don't have to walk around and waste my time trying to get to an arcade game or go see a movie I just downloaded. When i want to I just flip to the blade and do what it is I want to do. No gimmick necessary. I don't want to play a game to get to the game. Who has time for that? HOME is cool on its own, if your into walking around to get things done. For me I will stick to my 360, paying the $50 and get what I pay for. A service not a gimmick.
Windows does all the same things as dos except it's just more visual. Why click everywhere when i can just type in commands blah blah blah
Dude, clicking on stuff is way faster than typing in commands.
Just like the PSP Quick Menu is faster than walking everywhere.
But could you imagine if you had to TYPE all your commands into the PSP interface? Or TYPE "walk forward", "turn left" as you're navigating the 3D world?
Nothing against you... but your argument is weak.
Actually i found typing is heaps quicker
Depends how fast you type i guess...
Click Start, Click All programs, Click Wolfenstein folder, click link
Plus dos was way faster than windows overall in pretty much every area (including load times) as it was only typing in simple commands, while windows is more physical work
yeah.. i agree
even i prefer using "Run.exe" to open applications.
"windows button" + "R" and type "note" to open Notepad.
You can just ignore home and play games/demos/trailers without having to walk.
Yeah, typing can be faster in some instances, but not all (and yes, I can type very fast by the way, and yes, I grew up with DOS). In general Windows will allow you to get things done faster though (especially for the casual user). And especially navigating directories, copying files... and drag and drop is priceless.
Anyway, different people have different preferences. But if it wasn't faster (and most of all simpler)... then we'd still be using DOS, and there wouldn't be things like HP-UX.
Whoa. That looks fun.
Maybe some people might like the looks of Home... but I will in no way shape or form use anything but the PSP "Quick Menu" for everything (other than perhaps the first 30min of looking around).
Then we're back to a menu interface, and all the work put into creating the fantastic 3D world will have gone to waste. I think Sony could have focused their resources on something a bit more useful than this... but that's just my opinion.
If people choose to use the psp navigational system then that's thier choice. I think Sony delibritly put it in because they know that not everyone would want to use home, it's a smart move. But I think instead of just seeing an arcade game, you can see other people actually playing the games. It just seems like Home is realtime interaction. I love getting achievments on live but I think trophies would be alot more interesting. You can't say that Sony is taking a step backwards with Home.
Why is it every time you open your mouth Scarlett it starts to smell funny. Everybody who read your comment and believed it is a bit dumber for it.
Well, you don't even deserve a response. But I must apologize...
... I failed to realize that Home might be very appealing to little kids who don't actually have homes/apartments, and who have no social life / friends because they sit at home and play games all day.
And yes, I agree that Sony was very smart to include the PSP navigation... if they didn't, I doubt many people would use Home for very long at all. I'm just sayin' that they could have spent their time and money on something much greater than creating a 3D world like this. I just really don't think Sony knows their audience very well... but I could be wrong. I'm just not included in any audience that could see myself utilizing anything but the PSP quick menu.
the first video was taken last night, ah, some one is getting banned.
"The Sony Protection Group is a group built up of fans of Sony and the Playstation 3 unit. Our main goal and objective is to portray them in a positive light and help out Playstation 3 fans."
Sony Defence Force would be a better name I guess. Doesn't sound that positive, PS3 fans afraid for the PS3 being a failure?
Yeah fun, Home... We've seen enough promisses Sony. Xbox Live would be matched by the PS3 @ its launch. It didn't. They now made a nice looking gimmick, but just show the damn thing running games, a unified friendlist, jumping in co-op 2, 4 or more players.
Enough of the endless showing futured stuff but no delivering!
you're back already??? i was thinking we won't be seeing you for atleast a week! q:
Noones showing it except users. These aren't sony submitted trailers of HOME...or did you think it was viral marketting?
When HOME releases you'll see it, saying you should have seen it now when it's in beta is another idiotic comment to add to your list
Ah the man with the useless gibberish back for some more. DOn't you get bored of stalkishly following around Sony fans all day? Do you get some sort of cell phone alert? SPG are a good group of guys, and their fun to work with. Don't be jealous cause your only home is the 4x4 hole you call a house.
Nice video. I can't wait to be on HOME! it shows how powerful PS3 can be.
If ever Microsoft tried to copy Sony, better call it "Shanty town", HOME is protected.
where is deep
i think he is class
i only read his post and now he is gone?
Home is going to be class for gamers and none gamers.
deeps here. Just with a new name. "doh"....deep got in a bit of trouble last week with some news and felt he should change his name to show his stupidity. DOH!
Keep up with good post mate
i read on and u have put a few people in there place
oh pm me who you put in their place and what about. Im interested
A scarface set up from the movie
with his office
lets see if i can pull it off haha
AWESOME can't wait!!!
everything that can be done virtually can be done in the xmb.....its not like your forced to go on there... but if you like hanging out showing off your trophies, watchin peoples movies via their hardrive/ sharing pictures at their virtual house if you dont like it move on.... just use the xmb .... period ..no more unneccesary comments
i better be accepted into open beta.
