Here is a preview of Home. Home is a real-time online 3D, networked community available on the Playstaion Network(PSN). Continue
I will simply add some dirty gestures :).
Desperate times (the ps3 lagging behind the competition) call for desperate measures and I must say this is a nice "measure", it reminds me of the game phantasy star online from sega. I'm sure that if it becomes popular Microsoft will create something similar for the 360 and it will probably have better graphics like most 360 games seem to have.
Thats a possibility, remember because of the Linux functionality included on the ps3, possibility extend very far on the console.
yea possibly..anyways when is this HOME coming to the ps3?
looking forward to it :D
it's supposed to hit in either late September, or October. i'd go with October.
I can't wait for the open Beta. I really hope I get in. Home FTW!!
C'on! I want to go Home.
head sets, if they want home to go any where... I own that stupid Madcatz headset and half the time it doesnt work.
warhawk (a game all ps3 users should own) comes with a headset
jabra bt125 works great and it costs 30 bucks... not too bad for a bluetooth.
I doubt that they will but this innovative feature is too awesome to be let alone.
Seems very tedious. For example, Do you really have to walk around to your different areas or can you push a button and instantly look at your trophies?
There's some sort of a PSP thing that works as a directory and it shows places were you can/want to go. If you want to go to your ciber home for example you can with the PSP directory, just open the menu and you can go anywere. In the beta, they updated it so that you can run like a crazy person.
They better not charge for Home and PSN in the future. That would really put me off Playstation and online gaming.
I'm not really positioned one way or the other on the aforementioned question, but it's still something to ponder about. Are there really tons of people that are going to say, "A free version of Second Life, a free game, included with a PS3? Now that's worth $600."
It might be a way to snatch some casual gamers, but at the same time it looks like a lot of them will be turned off my the sheer amount of features and complications.
What do you guys think?
I just hope they keep PSN and Home free. That way it could attract more people to buy PS3s.
Everything that makes something unique and pleasurable promotes sales.
If you ask if the results justify the cost, i don't know, time will tell i guess.
And its NOT 2nd Life, 2ndLife looks UGLY compared to the material we see from HOME, and the optics are the important part in an 3d powered virtual world/chat.
To the one above: Phil Harrison stated multiple times that HOME and the PSN are supposed to be free (as in no set subscription fees like Xbox Life(gold)). They plan on making money on the additional stuff people will buy and on the downloadable games and via advertising in the world .
If you feel the need to disagree i would appreciate a comment on what exactly you disagree with. Cause i always like to know where people think i am wrong so i can use that feedback.
Home will not sell many consoles alone. Not many things besides Halo could sell consoles alone. There are people who loke the PS3, but what it offers now is not enough to warrant a purchase. Home as an added feature/service to what already interest someone in the PS3 will promote sales though.
Maybe it won't REALLY sell a lot of console, but it's just something that people will take in consideration while purchasing there next gen machine. It's like another "It plays Blu-Ray movies and also has a cybernetic Home feature that let's you customize your house while interacting socially with players around the world" thing.
It's nice to have this feature, but I believe that the games is what really defines a system, that AAA title that everybody loves and makes you want to buy the console regardless of the price. (MGS4 for me for example)
Sony keeps on delivering the goods, damn gotta love Sony!!
Hom3 = awesome.
this put water to my eyes, im so happy to be a multiconsole owner.
I hope theres is lunch area hahaha jk.
This must be by far the best idea Sony has every made.
Have you SEEN the Play B3yond ads?
Hurry up and give us home dammit!!!!!!1
I f*cking hate this site. I'm deleting my profile and never coming to this battle zone for flamers ever again. I remember when I used to go to xbox360news.com but now that is gone because it merged with this N4G. It should be renamed Sales Stats 4 Gamers or Flamers 4 Gamers because this is all it has come to now. Every PS3 owner and 360 owner battling over a retarded subject like video games. This is not Politics people! Videos games are a form of entertainment. Goodbye flamers and good riddance to this f*cking site.
this guy has posted this same crap on every article, I guess he just wants some attention..here some get the [email protected]
AWESOME, love the fact the menu is a PSP!!
the translating sentences is awesome
whao thats one big ass trophy room!!!
Home Home Home Home Home I traded in my xbox 2 weeks ago cause me and my friend are hardcore sony and gears was getting old i loved the games so i bought it i love and i no its gonna have better online updates and fall realeases and KZ2 omg but when i heard of home im so happy i traded in XGay and got ps3 Go Home and ps3! hit me on xriotmanx
This yet again maybe another reason to own the PS3. Slightly like Sims, with playable arcade games and other stuff (pool, bowling etc).
The possibilities with this are endless, it is also better than just meeting ur friends for a chat through the head set.
I do think they might keep it free or maybe have an option for more content for a price. As I remember reading somewhere Sony said they would get revenue from advertising in the game (billboards, ads on the TV etc).
I hope this is as good as it looks and they keep updating it for a long time.
I wasn't too bothered about home when I first saw it but I think its going to be a good way of setting up online games with people.
Having a 3D person to move around and interact with other people will make it easier for people new to online gaming (most of the PS2 users) to find friends quicker.
I doesn't look like it has too much content at the moment but as a free online lobby for gamers it looks very good.
I didn't get into te closed beta that already started but the open beta should start soon.
about this idea? I think it's great and will be a wonderful way to waste time at your real HOME when there's nothing going on.

i like the look of that huge trophy room :)
(i noticed the killzone one off to the side...)
You don't have to use it but it is a choice. For one thing you can have a radio and and you could use Home to play music or a movie. Also I think its a cool idea for clan members if you're a hardcore gamer. Also they placed running in Home. I'm waiting for chess and other boardgames to be placed so it would sorta like Yahoo Games
