PlayStation Home has been a success for Sony, and it looks like the momentum is just going to continue to build in its favor. Director Jack Buser recently let loose some interesting facts about just how well the program is faring.
It seems that the Home system just keep getting better every year.
What a useless feature.
Grapes that you can't eat are sour anyway, eh? It is there, it is free. No need to complain.
I'm not a fan at all. But hey, if other PS3 owners are enjoying it, who am I to spoil their fun?
If you delete home, it will save you from accidentally clicking on it and you get a bonus 3.5 gigabytes of extra space on your hard drive.
That right there tells you people like HOME. For all you people that come to each and every HOME article with "it's useless", "it's a waste", and whatever else, there are 14 million people that obviously feel otherwise. And make no mistake. the minority of N4G that feel HOME is useless isn't even a blip on the tiniest radar when compared to 14 million users and counting. Keep that in mind
lol they keep coming these people trying to say that it's useless ...yet home is printing money for sony and so far 14 million of users are happy
People defend Natal ( example ON TOPIC ) because it's not for them People attack home because it's not for them Home is pointless for me, and many people, it has it's uses but generally speaking I wouldn't use it.
sony made millions off of home in the first few months in profit, the fact that sales have tripled is a great sign. People may never use home but if it keeps improving and provides a revenue stream which can be used to offset other costs such as online dedicated servers then its only a win win for a free product any ps3 owner can use.
People never use Home? I know people who dont even use their ps3 for anything but to get on Home.
@da shredder i said people never use home on purpose, how could something nobody ever uses as stated by the haters create a constant revenue stream which has three times its original ammount?
I played home for a couple of weeks last year, and I had the impression that it was very full of unused potential. What I love about home's concept is that if you enter a game room, or find an avatar who is sharing some of your interests, you can talk to him, and jump into a game. This I'd great, because you get to know people who are interested in the same games as you, and you can find multiplayer buddies ( people who are always online willing to play a multiplayer game with you. One feature though, which I an absolute MUST for Sony, is reward PSN users Home Points everything they buy something on the playstation store. This can introduce new people to this great social software, and reward the loyal ones.
What's great about HOME is that I don't have to use it.
and its still garbage without voice chat. without voice chat its just a stupid avatar game where youre supposed to buy digital crap. give me a break. give us back voice chat so it can be a real social app.
blabla ... yet another hater ..voice is back since ages . you can, talk with you friends everywhere and voice chat is fully active in personal spaces ..in public space you just have to call your friend to enjoy voice chat. see how uninformed and stupid you sound now ?
I was in Home when voice chat was enabled and all I heard was racist, sexual nonsense. Thanks god they got rid of it.
Good to see Home is working out for Sony!
the only thing I dislike about home is the stiffness of the avatars(very limited actions), other than that I login an hour or so everyday meeting friends or just messing around.
what were sales last year? can't really scope the meaning of this unless we have a base number :/
And the Game Room on Xbox 360 was hyped you can go around and chat with other and was hyped to destroy Home via Greenberg, worst man in gaming history, never see so much hate coming from that troutmouth.. As a all console owner see all the hate coming from him is too much.. Home ive used for quite some time, using now these days if only someone of my friend are online in Home with keyboards and mics :)
"And the Game Room on Xbox 360 was hyped you can go around and chat with other and was hyped to destroy Home via Greenberg" Source? Game Room was never hyped to be a Home-killer. It's in the fucking title: Game Room. It's meant for playing classic games.
You really get out of Home what you put into it. Put forth an effort to meet people, and you'll generally meet decent people. Kinda reminds me of something...Oh yeah real life! :O
I've met more nice people than morons on Home. I usually just try to stop buy and see whats new , and what do you know im there for 2 hours! It's alot of fun and there are so many things to do, i can't wait to see what new things Home has this year and the years to come.
Good for Sony, more money means more games for me. xD
