PlayStation Home Not A Business Priority

Despite users spending extended time and money in Home, Sony isn't currently aiming to develop it as a marketplace.

During the London Games Conference last night, Pete Edwards, director of PlayStation Home, said that Home users are spending money on items through microtransactions in Sony's virtual world.

"It's been a long road," he said. " We've proved there is a market out there and we've got a lot of people that spend a lot of time in [Home]. It's not a priority right now but there is a business model there."

I never spent time in Home.
I did spend 3 hours just checking out the content when 1.30 home rolled out recently. But then never thought to look back.
I rather play.. Demon's Souls then roam there.. (sry that i keep bringing up demons souls.. its the only game that I want to play for the time being lol)

That is because Home is a flop, even Sony knows this. That is why they have given up all hope on it.

At least Home isn't a rip-off like the 360 avatars. Seriously do you get off in your basement thinking "Today's the day Sony will fail,"and then when it doesn't happen you cry yourself to sleep? I'm sorry, but most 360 fan-boys defend the 360 by saying it has games, and yet I see a good portion of the comments on PS3 games, and there by 360 fanboys calling them a flop. If you have games then I don't know what you are doing trolling the PS3 articles. I've only said that ODST was an over-priced expansion pack, and I haven't played it, so I don't know if it's good, or not in my opinion. Have you played Uncharted, and if so how is it a flop? Seriously, if you never played, or touched Home, then you can STFU, and go back to your cave where you belong. I'm glad that you waste your five bubbles on trolling. Why don't you actually try and make a decent comment once, and for all?

It's pathetic it didn't get more attention here on N4G. "News for Gamers" indeed.
