Its official the biggest chain games retailer in the UK now support the PS3 first and foremost. I mean they will now push PS3's so people in turn will visit there HOME space and see their ads. It's called business sense. You will see PS3 sales in UK go up because of this.

A cool thing that Sony should possibly consider with these retailers is allowing people to purchase the games through HOME. For example, place a pre-order online and if there is money in their PSN account, it would deduct the total amount and the retailer would have the money in their systems. This way the person could either have the game delivered to them or can go right in, pick it up and walk out. Similar to how some places allow you to place orders for food online and you just walk in and pick it up.

I guess with that attitude, you must hate games in general then?

GAME could do something smart here...
And provide a full store with added discount.

I can't see why they couldn't get a way for Home users to see their entire PS3 line up through this system and allow users to order games there. Each game could have a trailer and gameplay footage.

Will home ever move past beta stages?
I jump in every now and again to check on progress, I wish there was a way to make this more popular.

Will N4G ever move past beta stages?
Have a look in the upper right corner of your monitor, what do you see there? I see

beta 2.0

So what does it matter if Home ever comes out of beta?

I am not trying to belittle you, but apparently many do not understand that being in beta indefinitely is not a bad thing.

People seem to think that some kind of magic ought to happen automatically when they enter Home.

Home is what you make it. If you enter just to stand around, waiting for something to happen, then you're guarenteed to hate it.
You need to get in there, talk to people (about things other than "boobs") and get involved with groups - If you do, you should have a blast.

How Sony get Home detractors to realise that, on the other hand, is beyond me.

EDIT: And I mean "you" as in everyone, not you, Schommerc!
