Sony announced today during its Tokyo Game Show Keynote that Home won't be launching this year like previously planned. Home is now planned to be released early next Spring.
this sucks, but hey if its not done then well its not done, guess we will just have to play the waiting game :(
I have resistance,motorstorm,lair,hea venly sword,uncharted,ratchet and clank,GT5 prologue, Ut3,haze,wowhawk ,folklore,minna fold and DW 6----just enough games to keep me happy for 2007
i dont need HOME but i need the new PSP
PSP games on a 72" TV screen at 480p
wow just woooooooooooow
@ BOTS below
there are just too many games to keep the ps3 owners happy this year.
Think about ur garbage box 360 and its toon games
90% of ps3 exclusive games look far better than CARTOON HALO 3 which has 0 preorders in JAPAN and EU
i guess not many people will be Buying PS3's this Christmas what with HOME being Delayed i never thougt they would Delay something with so much Hope and Anticipation...but hey it's SONY they can Delay anything
With the 72" TV remark. You just totally owned yourself. @480p would look like....
As a sony fan (ps1 thru ps3) I can admit all this delaying is getting old.
It's almost like sony doesnt care anymore, I think...?
Luckily sony packed the ps3 full of good features, but i hate waiting for the great ones.
If they didn't care they WOULDN'T delay anything. They would rush out an unfinished piece of crap just to make money. If a game isn't finished then it needs to be delayed to make the final cut. I would much rather wait a couple of extra months to play something spectacular then get an unfinished version a few months earlier.
STFU already with your constant ramblings, you make PS3 owners seem idiotic. Your not helping in any way.
Home could become the biggest MMORPG ever if they get it right - all for free.
It should be like a city where you can drive vehicles, fly, play sports, buy and run shops, design and build homes etc as well as be a link to video games.
I've seen glimpes of of this but there's alot to be done. I hope Sony sees the vision that I have for home.
I don't mind waiting. Just get it right Sony.
didn't i flush you down the toilet yesterday?
"Halo 3 has no pre-orders in Japan..."
It's playstation, buy it!! Please sony, get over yourself. Yeah, breaking news, your plan for world domination backfired. You didn't put gaming first, you janked everyone and put your new tv,movie,and money skam ahead of what gamers care about most, quality gaming.
Thanks for your astounding PR department sony!! Otherwise average people couldn't figure out for themselves that the Cell processor was built for video decoding(even though the ps3 is $100-200 too expensive), with blu-ray. BTW, how is Toshiba's new line of hdtv's fairing with the spectacular Cell processor? Game devs know your bs.
Pleeez buy a ps3, pleeez, pleeez,pleeez...
NOOOOOOO is correct but does this mean that us PS3 owners are now "HOMELESS"? Get it "HOME"-"LESS&qu ot;. HA hA.
more waiting :/
I ALREADY GOT IT!!!
I ALREADY GOT IT!!!
na na nana na!!!
just kinda, guys. don't worry. truthfully you're not missing much right now. there's still alot you can't do (upload video, pictures, music) and i've been VERY active in talking with sony about HOME and things that need to added, deleted and wants of the PSN community.
some member of this site can tell you i even take suggestions from them that i think are good and put them in writing for sony. if you guys have anything you'd like to see that hasn't been announced yet, let me know.
Hey scotty! I want to be able to fistfight people. Tell them to implement that!
hey scottie i want to have a pet monkey ;) or better again an apartment full of them *drifts off thinking off all the hilarious antics they would get into*
The best things in life are free.
I was a little bummed but, you're right. It's free and as long as it gets done right then, 3-4 more months aint gonna kill me. Just make sure you keep bringing the games. I'm stoked on HS. Great game. Then it's back to warhawk until drakes fortune hits.
not really a good 90% of the time free stuff is tasteless, stupid, and cheaply made.
Actually isn't that saying focused more towards things like Love and Happiness? Not items...
Xbox 360 guys now have a reason to flame, yet I totally agree with them. Sony, you annouced a CONTROLLER AND A DELAY. That's NOT a Press Conference, that's a PR disaster.
I'm a PS3 guy but no spin will make this good.
There is never a justified reason to flame. This is just news.
but do you think that will stop them?
Hirai says they want to have a worldwide service. They want functionality for all users throughout the world -- all users have different requests for the service. Want to make sure they have range of services that can be satisfactory for users throughout the world. So, decided to delay the service launch date.
The thing is he was straightforward with the info in his address. Sony seems to have learned a lesson about giving it fast and hard and not dodging bad news.
It isn't a PR disaster in fact it was a boon that they set the record straight and bit the bullet. Now BS attackers have no place to go.
And Sony also says another price drop is possible this year.
All I can say is that I am disappointed. Home and Rumble delayed. Why even announce it? I'm sure it will be delayed again.
These are the things people complain about. Now, consumers know rumble is coming. There are plenty of people who will say, I'll just wait until rumble comes out, their may even be another price drop, double bonus.
SO guess what, by doing this, you only hurt your sales. Home being delayed is just another disappointing setback. We're promised ingame everything, and yet we still wait. Delaystation 3 ftl.
People will wait for rumble, price drops, and New/More Games. I know i will.
well i really didn't like that conferance nothing big ugh oh well.
disappointmetn to me the whole keynote was cuz almost(Almost) nothing in it is coming out soon i love sony but cmon
40 titles are playable on the TGS floor.
EDIT: Some people don't know the difference between playable and showing. Sony is showing more than 81 but 40 are playable. Get a dictionary next time.
40 titles for Sony... and MS is showing 81
Is it delayed in Japan only or does this apply to everywhere
The article says Sony doesn't specify a specific region. But it is more than likely everywhere. Hopefully it doesn't delay the beta America was supposed to get this Fall.
sorry ps3 owners, i guess you're going to have to get used to delays.
First it was...
Wait till the PS3 is released, it will blow the 360 out the water!!
then it was...
Wait until the devs get the hang of it!!
Wait until LAIR comes!!
Wait until Christmas 07, LOTS of titles and HOME!!
Wait until next spring!!!
Get the pattern?!!
D3LAYSTATION!! PLAY B3YOND!! yeah.... play beyond today!! wait for 10 years...
I know, everyone gotta WAIT!! hell, ppl gotta wait for HALO 3....
I gotta wait 15 more mins till i get my copy of HALO 3.
HAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHA!!! Im calling in sick tomorrow...my assistant MGr at the SONY store in SF, CA. can run the store byhimself!! He can also explain WHY we gotta wait for HOME, when we already started telling ppl its coming out this year. Poor guy...I hope he doesnt quit!!
Why does Halo 3 have crappy last gen looking graphics?
why does halo 3 have better graphics then about 90% of all ps3 games?
Wasn't it supposed to be a year ago? I know the PS3 has had some delays but, so has the 360. You're just enjoying a year head start.
Thank you for telling me exactly what store and location you work at. I can now file a formal complaint.
Another idiot fanboy. Yes the 360 has more titles out right now. They also have a bigger recall including the new problem with the steering wheel.
You are too stupid to realize that right now game features are being cut so they can fit on DVD9.
You are too stupid to realize that MS has broken their word about not requiring the HDD. Damn the list goes on and on.
Both sides have made huge miscalculations. That is a fact. A braindead paperweight like yourself can attempt to dodge such facts that incriminate the console and company you worship but you won't be able to get out of the way before being run over by the truth. Another dumb fat kid hit by the factmobile.
actually putty i dont remember halo 3 having a delay, it was all ways it will come out when its ready when you asked bungie.
LOL and hatchet, Last I checked...Nearly every game on the ps3 REQUIRED THE hard drive, Oh and last I checked the only games that require the hard drive on teh 360 are......OH MY GOD MMORPGS! which we're all ways requireing hard drives on the original xbox, and the 360 oh my god! so last i checked thats not a lie.
Oh and I love how you bring up the ol'cow ace card....but but but but teh 360 has high defect rates.
P.S: I love how you incapable of posting a comment with out insulting him, Dumb fat kid? rightttt thats an insult an 3rd grader would use.
Damn Baker, every PS3 has a HDD. Sony never stated something wouldn't be required that comes as part of the system. You do realize how foolish you look don't you. NEWSFLASH!!!!!!!!!EVERY PS3 HAS A HDD.
P.S. I call them like I see them. A dumb fat kid isn't a mentally challenged less than normal physiqued child. He is a dumb fat kid. Euphemisms may make you feel better and in a country of free speech you are welcome to them but I won't use them to make YOU feel better.
He's a dumb fat kid, okay.
Edit: Keep changing what you said and you may get it right Baker. Saying a PS3 caches data to the HDD is somehow wrong - like Bungie said they wished they could do this time as it promotes seamless level loading - is attacking in the favor of the PS3.
Speed of the Bluray has nothing to do with the fact the games load faster and better from a HDD. Developers this time around lamented the fact the 360 can't depend on it. Bluray isn't fast, that is true. But it doesn't need to be either. Having an HDD built in is a plus and needed regardless of drive speed. And Bluray has a lot of data to share. Games like Uncharted are using 5000 animations he he.
Here is what you call doublespeak:
"Every game will work with every Xbox 360 system...But just like some games will require you to have a Memory Unit to save games, some games will require you to have a Hard Drive to experience them.
Ahh. So "save" is now synonymous with "experience"? And "hard drive" is synonymous with "Memory Unit"? Just come out and say what we've all seen coming since launch—we'll need the freakin' hard drive because it's too irresistible to developers. (Of course, it's the exact definition of "need" that's in question here.) "
You see here is your mistake Baker. I am not a fanboy of any system. I am a fanboy of the truth. I play both consoles and a PC and have things I like and dislike about them all. The fact is MS made a habit of saying all games would work with the CORE but downloads would require a HDD. Then they changed their tune with a UK title - Football Manager (it bombed).
Now they have made a statement about MMOs and the best part - No HDD limits. Have fun dumping your videos and such when you have to make room for a game. The 360 was built, but not to last. Hell my first one didn't make the 1.5 year mark. The sad thing is the technology in the 360 wasn't built to last either. But of course MS only supports a 4 year life span.
damn hatchet, I never said sony said that, I said that nearly every ps3 game requires an hard drive because it has to cache files becuase the blu ray drive is so extremely slow load times would be like 30-50 seconds multiple times a level.
*above is fact*
And Last I checked Microsoft never stated MMO's wouldn't require the hard drive.
P.S: I love arguing with fanboys, even though i dont give a damn...lol *goes back to playing heavenly sword for the 5th time*
Goddamnit. Open the freaking floodgates for these damned flame wars.
i don't think you take an opportunity like tgs to announce delays. They should have announced a beta or something. I mean the game was supposed to be released in less than a month and instead got pushed back by at least 5 months. Bull sh1t. I wonder why they are releasing rumble in japan 1st. i think am gonna have 2 import that if i can since uncharted already has rumble programmed in thats 1 game i would really like to experience with rumble and dnt wanna do it the second time cus it wnt feel the same
NBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO COME THE **** ON SONY WTF I AM BORED I NEEDED HOME GODDAMNIT WTF.....
Thats what i think. Maybe its just japan...
I hope this is only for Japan...Xbox fans are already celebrating and they don't even know if it's for all regions.
edit: Wow...it's for everywhere, this freakin sucks. Yet another thing not to look forward to soon. I was hoping to get Home, rumble, UT3, Haze, Uncharted...just a bunch of awesome PS3 stuff this year but...damn this just dimmed the spotlight I had on PS3.
3-4 months isn't a huge deal. But you guys should be used to the waiting game by now...
I'm a little disappointed.
I won't lie, I wanted both Home and Rumble by November.
Sucks that I have to wait more.
At least I have Uncharted and Ratchet to keep my spirits up.
Still no news on firmware 2.0 though...
Unfortunately for me my excitement for 2.0 just got shattered it was Home I was looking forward to. I'm sure 2.0 will have some great features ( well it better after the last 2 were completely useless to me because I'm in Europe) but at the moment I'm just annoyed that home wont be one of them.
This is disappointing but what's important is that sony is taking time to give ps3 owners quality. I will rather wait then get a unfinished product. I mean, people complain when companies rush things, then when companies take their time they complain even more. Come on here guys make up your mind.
Spring 08 is no problem, We have a good amount of games coming out to keep us occupied.
I agree to a point. For example Conan. One of my favorite franchises since I was a kid... I feel they are gonna screw this up with an early release. Home... It can be patched and fixed if its released early. It's not like they can't expand it. I'm sure it will mutate a ton over PS3's life cycle.
All I personally want is a schedule that can be stuck too. Why not just say "It will be done when its done but we are shooting for XX/XX/XX"? Makes it easier. GTA4, Home, Halo and a ton of games have been pushed back so many times its disheartening... I thought the beta was going well for Home.
I dunno... Guh
The Delaystation 3 & I really hope this is only for Japan.
Honestly I am sure everyone is upset. I am. I love the console. I hope they release something juicy soon. This is gonna fuel flames like mad.... I am so upset I wanna punch babies... and drown kittens and Xbots all at once... TGS isn't over yet. /pray
This blows. I've been waiting for this to launch in October, but now I have to wait until March or later :( Oh well hopefully everything will be perfect when it actually ships this Spring, and maybe they'll open the beta up again.
and games come on xbox360 haves all the best games in any gender
XBL DL: Carcasonne, Bomberman, Space girrafe, Bejewelled... Am I missing any cool DL games?
XBL: Gears of war, and..... uhhhh..... Halo2?.... Hmmmm....
PSN DL: Warhawk, Tekken5DR, MK2, Flow,
PSN: Motorstorm, RFOM
If you wanna look at the horizon.
360: Halo 3....NG2.... ME?
PS3: UT3, Haze, Echochrome, Ratchet, Uncharted, KZ2... More I'm sure....
Point is GTFO go back to 360 forums and QFT.
QFT? Are you sure you know what that means?
"Point is GTFO go back to 360 forums and QFT."
Someone want to help me out here?
HOME, real controller, lower price, some good games... all coming in 2008. Seems that Sony's PS3 launch was premature to me.
Now y'all have to wait some more.
Guess you guys are use to it by now,sighhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
2nd verse,same as the 1st...........I'm Henry the 8th I am..........
Over promise. Under deliver. At least it is free. BTW, is this offical. When I get a PS3 home is not something I wanted anyway. But for Sony to say it will launch this fall sucks.
everything keeps getting delayed.
Why the hell did they even come out with this thing.
son of a d!ck, that is all I can say, son of a d!ck
There better be one hell of a very big open beta sign up to make up for this. Sony needs to get their acts together when it comes to Delaying Games.
