Dress is an expansion for the PlayStation Home service. It attempts to bridge the the gap between real life fashion designers and the digital fashions that you make use of in the virtual Home world. Sony refers to it as a "premium avatar service."
something for the girls.. okie dokie
We get to play dress up!!!!!!!!! (did i say that out loud)
I dont want to buy another PS3 just for that..
hope SONY make enough money from this service (advertising and other stuff like this) and keep it FREE for ever..
I wonder how fast this will be copied or knocked-off by other platforms?
you should get paid for your PR work....if your not then what a waste.
and what games are you playing madden raider...since your busy putting up crappy news posts?
Well atleast you can finally fulfill your fantasy as dressing as a girl. ;)
I didn't know know Second life is another platform titwanker. Now go back into your cave and play Haloalldaylo retard.
Maddens Raiders -
Wait, did you just actually say "Haloalldaylo"? I mean, as a form of an insult? Seriously, mate, you are in no way improving the image of Sony fanboys.
^ (4.4) has a point.
I'm glad to do it. Someone has to I suppose.
Look eclipsygraph I simply borrowed that wonderful "term of endearment" from one of your fellow "comrades". So if you want to blame anyone for use of it -- this is where I got it from:
SDS Overfiend - 17 Hours ago
Ignore66 - No you did''nt maddens Raiders, No you did'nt?
You actually posted this flamebait?
Fuk you man!!!! You's a b1tch and the fuking clowns who created it.
After Halo 3 drops there is so much negative themed reviews and analysist etc is a shame. I guess it goes to show what a great game it is. Anyway while you Sony fanboys search for Negative press I'm playing Halo all Daylo. I guess that is what you do when you wait for BBB titles.
BTW to All my Xbox Comrades
If you ever play Halo on the Map Sandtrap Have a Mongoose race across the sand. It controls and looks better than Motorstorm.

Now considering who the author is and his 'witty' assumptions and conclusions I can't simply lump all _Bots in this same lot, but this is the mentality I'm used to dealing with and what I'm dishing out.
lol, anyone who uses the phrase "Haloalldaylo" "schooling bots" and promotes dress-up is obviously confused in their sexuality.
actually... commenting on another persons sexuality, is pretty much the smoking gun (pun intended) of someone questioning their own. Just to let you know buddy. Take the people screaming about people being [email protected]
its a program too make clothes....for a avatar in a chatroom/social arena...that you guys are honestly defending the idea...calling this "cutting edge". granted sony is taking chances on this but what happend too making games everyone wants too play instead of working on a social platform. You people cant honestly tell me you will be interested in this for months too come. Seriously...someone please explain too me how someone who would never purchase "barbies dress up adventures" but turns around and thinks dressing up their avatar sounds cool. You just cant sit around and glorify every idea sony comes up with and think its gold because there are people like me who just sit and shake their heads at the absurdity of it all.
this sounds pretty dope. I hope they include Affliction, Doctrine, Jedidiah, and Manchester Ltd. (my fav. clothing brands).
I don't want to wait till 2008.
how long it will take before the usual suspects come in and try to derail the good news?
@ Lightning, I hope you're right...it's getting old by now. It still remains to be seen though. This sort of thing seems ripe for the pre-pubescents to run rampant with their standard homophobic quips.
@ First Knight, I do admit, it is pretty humorous, but regardless, I can see where some people might value something like this. Personally I think I'll just stick to whatever is the default, or maybe a shirt of the current game I'm playing, but again, I think this is a cool idea for those that would be into it.
I've said it before and I'll say it again. User customization ftw. Certain things may not appeal to everybody, but the more in the pot then the better for the majority.
not on this article.
ah lightning.. never underestimate the power of a fanboy
you have to admit that this is pretty funny.
OMG!!!! Are you guys serious? Dress??? Good news??? Oh man, thanx for the laugh guys! :)
How can you not??? This is just to juicy! I'm sure you guys even knew how corny this is since you didn't say anything productive but try to play "defense" with the "how long will it take for a fanboy blah blah blah." You just proved with that statement that you think this is a silly idea.
Couldn't resist, right? Nothing more constructive to say?
EDIT: And that's where you're wrong. See my post above for what I think.
Yeah I spoke too soon, That green hulk dude had to show up and ruin the party.
but whats with the simple titles to it all...home, dress, next it will be eat, and play...lol
don't get me wrong.. this is definately not something I will be looking into, but its nice to see sony going after a different demographic, you know, something other than "teenage douchebag who wants to kill and destroy everything" demographic. Actually the more I think about it, the more I want sony to implement things like this and singstar. Think about, you're in home, walking around, playing some mini games and checking things out. Do you want to be surrounded by dudes? or girls that are going to be into dress, and singstar. Go sony, bring more gamer girls into the mix, anything to bring the female aspect into HOME.
sorry, but i can think of a whole lot of things they could have used those resources on to better their current service.
i read a couple comments about how this would bring more girls into the mix. you pedo's. honestly, how old of a chick is gonna be playing virtual dress up? the kinda ladies i'd personally like to see are the ones that aren't to fond of clothing.
Hardcore gamers are not gonna be interested in this service (they might even ridicule it) however casual gamers, the fashion industry and other groups will find this highly appealing.
There are several advantages to be seen in this move by sony:
1) Getting sponsors for psn to keep the service free aside from Game companies and inner resources.
2) Attracting attention from different sectors to invest in the industry
3) A reason for fashion entusiasts gamers to get in the wagon
4) Aumenting the virtual comunity aspect of home
5) Sounds like part of the idea of selling cloths in dual format to your avatar and a delivery to your home
6) Doing something new to stop the "companies interest only" that seems to be dominating the console gaming arena lately.
i also want to see companies add other things.like:
CAR CLUB PORTAL
bring your tricked out car from say,GT5, to a hot rod type show and talk about the technical things,how the car looks(like the new nissan) and how fast you drove it in a quarter mile.what type of modifications you did and such.even see concepts from car companies.
sectioned off to those who like soccer,football,basketball,bas eball,etc.see upcoming games for ps3.watch highlights.have ESPN coverage right in a theater for sports gamers to watch and talk about together.shoot some baskets and toss a football around in 3D on a football field.enter an arena and watch a real boxing match streamed,or watch a virtual boxing match like in fight night.
MOVIE AND MOVIE BASED GAMES PORTAL
go to cybertron and watch the autobots and decepticons fight,watch the cartoons or movies,play out one on one matchups.see silent hill movie clips,enter together in a silent hill portal simular to resident evil outbreak.
VIDEO CHAT PORTAL
the sky is the limit on what HOME can have and represents.video chat portals discussing politics or todays news.since CEll can show thousands of thumbnails,you could see everyone talking and click on their video streamed thumbnail to private chat.even have moderators.go beyond youtube because it's all happening in real time.
REAL TIME EYETOY GAME PORTAL.
play pong or tennis using your hands against another online opponent.you see your face in the background on one side.the opponents in the background on the other side.kids can see who pops baloons first onscreen.play hot potato,lock the camera onto your finger like eyetoy antigrav does to your head and draw with your finger.realtime DDR dance off portal.see your partner dancing the same time as you.doesn't matter.
if i can think this stuff up.you had better know that devs are thinking the same thing on what HOME can do.
wii can't do that.360 can't do that.yet anyway.
can't wait to see what else drops besides fashion.
And more options is always a good thing.
If this had'nt been implemented,users would've asked for it anyway.
btw gamers do wear more than T's and boxers.I for one like fly Sh!t.
Uh-oh.. Sounds like pay for DLC to me.. You want your avatar in Home to have the latest Levi jeans, well it will cost you...
Still the concept is interesting and you can't knock Sony for trying new thing's in the console space. Not sure how many PS3 owners would be interested in this(I'm not) but as the user base grows this could have some real appeal to the casual female gamer.
i'm all for anything getting the female gamer into the home space
Dreesing up or playing AAA games......decisions, decisions.
If they add stuff like that, ppl can make their own stuff, build their own furniture, dresses, toys, houses, interior designs. It feels like a more polished version and cleaner and better looking version of Second Life, some ppl may get PS3s just to play Home primarily!! and for ppl who wants to 'create' and sell things, it would be an awesome environment.
Man and these can be carried over to PS4,5,6,7, this is a brilliant idea.
Did you playstation fanboys know that their is a brittney spears game?
you should check it out if your interested in playing barbie.
This is really gay... really gay...
I don't know how you gaylords can justify how gay this HOME is...
it is sad how PS3 is shaping out to be...
a homo waiting station.
You win the most infantile comment award.. and on this forum, that's saying A LOT!
uh oh, double edged got caught looking at other dudes packages in the gym shower, now he has to vent on an internet forum.. its ok double, you'll learn to go with your urges.
People have been customizing clothes in games for years now but since Sony put this feature in Home it some how becomes gay? I guess San Andreas is a Homo game. You fanboys can keep trying to Downplay Home but this "dress thing goes to show you how much features and cool ideas can go in Home. Plus if you don't want to you don't have to use home, you can just jump into a game.
im glad sony is attempting to break the standards and try new things.
risk is what seperates the boys from the men
and i dont mean the board game
How when something new comes along that doesn't appeal to one person, it's given an arbitrary label. A community driven/related service at that.
Yet at the same time, some of these people tout community related stats such as sales, attach rates, game libraries, online service, etc.
Brilliant, no? All of you hypocrites need to shove it. Half of the stuff you brag about you'll probably never give a try yourself, it's just your way of fanning the flames.
If you don't like something yourself, fine, but not at least appreciating what it can do for a certain demographic or the community as a whole is just despicable. Of course, if something that doesn't appeal to goes to your side, it's all good, one more weapon for me to use, right?
But if the other side gets it and I don't like it(Hell, if I do half the time), it's garbage. Love that mentality. Can't believe it's escalated to the point where different groups must be referred to as "sides".
Listen, as a Playstation fan myself and someone looking forward to Home, I'll admit that I'm not fond of this idea myself, and I don't see myself putting it to use. I can see where it can spark creativity within the community though and how much it may appeal to a substantial group of people. I feel the EXACT SAME WAY about rumble. I hate it, but it's good that it returns so it can please those who do like it. Selfish bastards.
Some of you, beyond just being elitist hypocrites, are some of the most narrow-minded fools I've ever come across. Keep that head deep underground though, once each system has a large enough library that the majority of the gaming community will be playing, you fanboys can keep floating around the internet bragging about the same games you'll probably never play, because believe me, it will all be falling upon deaf ears by then. the rest of us will be entirely too happy to either listen or dignify it with responses.
not surprised by this. It does fit in with Morgan Webb describing Little Big Planet as "adorable", and all those androgynous characters in most of the PS games.
Coming off this halo 3 hype i have seen peoples say its garbage..the worst game in history...and not even worth the hype. the hyperbole has been quite ridiculous but after playing both single player and multiplayer I have too admit its far decent then most people say. My point is if your happy with your ps3 then to hell with what anyone says about features that they will never try...their loss. You shouldnt take it personally. this is the internet..there will always be fanboys, flamers, and people who critique every move sony does...and vice versa with microsoft.
take any of this business personally. It's the ones who try to make it personal is who I have a problem with, and it's not even that serious tbh. I spend no more time thinking of the goings on of this site than I do when I make such a post, make no mistake about it.
Anyway, in regards to critiques...putting one's homophobic nature on display by calling something gay or saying things arbitrarily suck is hardly a critique. You know as well as I do what these folks are trying to do. To be honest, though, mor eoften than not, I leave the fanboys alone. I'm more provoked by boredom than anything else..secondary being the hypocrisy.
All in all I felt like stepping in to talk some sense into those who would degrade something for the simple sake of furthering their childish agenda...I just think it's ridiculous and enough is enough. I'm all for critiques and opinions though, they make for good discussion. Thing is, someone parading around forums spouting "gay", "it sucks", "how gurly", "noob," etc. is hardly looking for anything constructive.
Again, you're absolutely right, and you basically summed up what I said. Those of us content with our systems don't care, and I was saying that I imagine in the near future that the number of us who have this stance will grow, so fanboys...just quit while you're ahead. I think the lions share of you vampiric opportunists have gotten enough laughs in as it is, move on.
but like the flamers they will always be around...im glad your not taking none of this too the heart...there are just some people on here that are just terrible with expressing their feelings and some are just plain azzholes...belive me they are easy too spot...lol
.....but i would kind of prefer more of the first party Sony titles truely showing the benefits of blue ray released this year instead of 2008. At first i was really interested in Home....but its getting more gimicky with every news story on it. I wish they would just focus on the games for their games console.
