New footage from Home.
Alot more interesting than looking at the xbox gamer's card. All Sony has to do now is link that Home trophie room trophies in 'text format' or "small icons" and have it accessible via a united friendlist (same friendlist as Home of course), and have it viewable on the go as well as games launchable on the go as well on the XMB as well as Home. That's all it needs now then i dont see any reason MS will keep up with the monthly. I think competition is good, and if this goes on, i think current xbox owners may not need to be paying for Live for very long, which is good for them.
ill hold off on the homosexual remarks until this is a finished product
...and for the record..i am not homosexual..so dont throw that in face
What is so amazing about Home is that we are just seeing the very basic hub of the online world. Home is designed for third party developers to create their own custom spaces for their games and companies.
It is trivial to create customs spaces since all it takes is standard game art in Maya and tagging surfaces for video streams and images. So game art from a company's games can be leveraged to created customs Home spaces for that company that are all decked out in the theme and look of that company's games.
Sony will be updating Home constantly just like a normal MMORPG. So just like the PS3 is getting monthy firmware updates more and more spaces and features will continue to be added to Home over the next five years. Think back to how much stuff Sony has added to the PS3's firmware over the past year.
Video streaming and watching movies with your friends right there in Home.
Custom spaces for all developers to show off their games.
All the minigames for you to play while you are getting together with friends in
Home to play online games like Warhawk, Resistance, and SOCOM.
Custom clan spaces that are all decked out in your clans theme and a place for all of you to meet before and after matches.
Your own personal spaces where you can invite friends to stop by and share all of your media you have on your PS3.
Meet people in Home and being able to both jump right into a multiplayer PS3 game you all have right there as a group.
Just like a normal MMORPG Home is going to be the place everyone logs onto each day to meet up and hang out with friends before and after gaming.
Along with free online play for all games and dedicated servers Sony has nailed online gaming like no other company. The next five years is going to be insanely cool for PS3 owners.
Actually, it's coming together quite nicely. My biggest concern was that Sony was not going to have all of these features in place when Home launched publicly... awesome to see they've already put them in place before the end of the beta! I'm looking forward to pool, the arcade, chess & bowling... and of course tricin out my apartment.
Think it's going to be awesome too that I'll be able to put a movie on my hard drive and my friends can watch it from anywhere in the world. That's just hot sh*t.
This is living.
woah that looks crazy. before it kidna looked lame cuz the environments were so bland but now it seems like an actual world. cant wait.
ps: for some weird reason i am reminded of disneyland when the person walked around the courtyard area where everything is
couple of things.. I can see that relocating thing be pretty annoying, but I like the hang out chat aspect to it, and play a game of chess or something. I really want to see the getting people together and jumping into a game aspect to it.. do all of you have to have the game ready(on disc), or the game on your hard drive, if not that would be sweet, you can pull people into your game.. kind of like the psp does with some games...
Anyone else notice that dude hella stalking her, too funny
I'm already in the beta <3
EDIT: Also, there's something about the profile card. there's a black strip. I wonder what that space is for. O.o
Is someone jealous because I am in the BETA? :O [Too funny]
my friend is in the Beta and he's says it's Boring and it sucks i even tried it out for Myself, this will not bring poeple to Buy PS3's
If home linked up with The Agency
wow no one is on that just sad
It's a closed beta, moron.
haha just playin
looks entertaining i wouldnt mind if there was a extra feature like HOME on the 360 its not xbox live but it is cool
its a place to customize your place with pornos and i like that but it is not as quick to use as xbox live but i like it
note i am a xbox fan but still come on if this was a extra feature on xbox live in the Media blade...as a place just to customize for fun dont tell me it would not be cool...
EDIT: idk why people disagree with me BLADES ARE FASTER just face it!!!
why dont you think they make 3d OS yet come on 2d is always faster than 3d
Actually, it's just as fast as using Live. All of the locations and options that Home provides will also be available from the XMB for those ppl that don't feel like interacting with other players.
I think ill create this chick.. for an animated character shes got a pretty nice a$$. hopefully there' something to see under there ;) Actually this does look pretty cool. It'll be fun to explore and see what options sony comes out with later down the road
You can run now? When did that happen?!
Every time I see videos of Home beta is walking really slowly and it seems like it would get boring having to always go so slow, thank god they added the option to jog/run *phew*
but can you run and shoot at the same time? LOL
Actually, the walk / run thing is not really an issue as you can go to any location within Home almost instantly using the menu on the virtual PSP. I'm not in the beta, but I believe this to be true.
Actually it would be cool if sony think about adding a virtual Segway into Home...that would be awesome!! Imagine evryone riding around the Home areas with a Segway machine LoL.
Rofl escape from the stalker guy XD "Where can I change my face?"
"I like your hair"
The girl has a nice ass.
exciting part of this video was just watching the chicks ass. The rest was boring.
All naysayers be damned, the video was interesting and shows off what to expect from the hub and personal apartment.
If there's one reason I hope the PS3 install base picks up, if there's more PS3's out there, third party efforts to establish their own lobbies in home will increase and we'll get an experience found no where else, with an unprecedented connectedness with developers and companies.
Damn I wish the PS3 was cheaper and had more appeal, it has so much potential that may potentially never see day.
It looks awesome, I just wanna know what the trailer was that she walked past after she finished bowling. It looked tight, and she barely gave us a mini glimpse.
where you don't have to USE it,is just a demented fanboy.
the community aspect of gamers,retailers and developers coming together in a 3D environment is sick.just SICK.
it blows "miis" out of the water.and makes the 2D text of live look OLD.when all those retailers start adding their portals for real purchasing of products(not just virtual),and devs setting up game demo centers and hangouts,and gamers sharing pictures,movies,music and games together.
it's just mind boggling the potential this is if done right.but so far,it's on the money.haters can say what they want.but it's just another ps3 exclusive that can't be done on any other system.
just awsome.and FREE.to NOT use if you don't want to.
........................mag lev super train................
cant wait, looks awesome
Wtf is with all of the loading? I hope they sort that out by the time its finished.
can't wait,this is only a beta,and its only the basic part of Home,they'll be adding more contents,games,etc.
The loading didnt care much for me its just a few seconds anyway.
But i see they have aded some new feature and the graphics are even better now good job sony. cant w8 to try out home looks awesome.
and that chick have nice ass ;). Lol she had a stalker xD
If anyone can't see this video now (as its gone) try this link instead.
That strange girl sits in an armchair like it is a toilet. She breaks at pool by aiming straight at the front ball and she cannot play video games. She also wonders about aimlessly staring at stuff.
She is a 2D version of my Ex but with a better arse.
Interesting how the other video on the same page states clearly public access by October 2007. That is cool if it is true. I tend to avoid online social networking but I may give this a go.
can't wait. they keep talking about gradually expanding the beta instead of a big release, I just hope I get to dive in soon.
