Home Sweet Home: 25 Minute Tour of Playstation's New Online Network

Via Ripten:

"When do we get to go Home? Christmas is a time to be at Home with the family, so we can only hope that Sony gives us a present too. Wishful thinking maybe, but Christmas would be the perfect time. What better way to get away from the trials and tribulations of family bother, than to bury your attention into perfectly creating Father Christmas or Gary Glitter in Playstation Home and then making him dance like a numpty!"

Awesome vid, Chess would steal a lot of hours out'a me, though this may be called off the rails but, it would've been cool if we would be given the option to control other characters other than Humans, like a Ratchet, Jak, Drake or any other character skin would be available for even a small purchase and would be fully customizable just like the humans.

techie3431d ago

There is a Ratchet skin for Home...we all saw it at GDC.

Chubear3431d ago

No I think you'll have options to dress up like gaming Xters but not the actuall skin of the Xter. Get it?

having my gamer score in 3d for everyone to see is a step up from text based achievements.. it makes you people think wow whats that that you recieved... and then the examine it and they are like oh you got that from doing 10 stealth kills in uncharted. or you got that medal from blowing up 5 warhawks with the RPG on land... it's gonna be interested.Epic even has some plans for home with UT3 so it really will be awesome. the achievements thing worked for the 360, hopefully developers will be encouraged to do something like this once the resources become available in form of devkits. it'll be interesting what devs show out in 3d for for there games.

Mark Rein has PRAISED HOME. Does he have to? NO. He just knows how revolutionary it wil be. 15 million or more users on PS HOME by the end of 2008. ITS FREE PEOPLE. AND ITS SO FREAKING COOL.Its gonna grow to be so huge.

Sorry to PWN you 360 fanboy in denial but the PSN already has "over" 5.5 million users online. NOT ACCOUNTS. Each USER can make different accounts but Sony still register each USER. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...

Now? What makes you think that afer 2 Christmas seasons of sales...with how PS3 sales have picked up and how they will even be selling better... that the PS3 can't sell 9.5 million or more. You sir, are a bafoon in denial. IT WILL BE MORE THAN 15 MILLION.

BREAKDOWN FOR THE XBOTS (and anyone else who wants to know):

If the PS3 was able to get "over"(Sony said very recently) 5.5 million users online with over 60 million downloads already.... in 11 months in the U.S. and Japan and 8 months in Europe.... what make you feel that they cannot get ONLY 9.5 million more.... with November's sales added... With this Chritmas new users(millions) and next holiday seasons(will sale even much better next year in reality)....With Playsation Home being released with heavy advertisement... with really big online games like Little Big Planet, Killzone 2, Metal Gear Online, Haze, Unreal Tournament 3, Gran Turismo 5, Resistance 2 and really those just sale systems. EVERYONE gets online on PS3 because ITS FREE. That wht 5.5 million out of 6 million already have a user account. Did you also forget the PS3 was lowered 200$? LOLOLOL Lets be realistic... it will be MUCH MORE THAN ONLY 9.5 million more by the end of next December if it already had 5.5 million 2 weeks ago. LOL Playstation Network is catching Xbox Live at 8 million VERY VERY FAST. ITS FREE. I smell Xbots in denial. PS3 is the KING. Realistically it will out number XBL by MILLIONS in 2-3 years and we don't even want to talk about at the end of the PS3's lifecycle.

NOW: PSN: 5.5 MILLION USERS http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
junkbox live: 8 million paying subscribers

LOL ZONE TROOPER GET WITH THE PROGRAM AND STOP LISTEN TO YOUR NAIVE XBOT BUDDIES. They lie.

Aren't I being VERY REALISTIC GUYS? How is what I said not true. I fvcking provided a Wikipedia link. PSN will surpass XBL .. and at this rate^^^^^^^^^(link and numbers) IT WON'T TAKE LONG.

zonetrooper53431d ago

Lol, 15 million users on PS Home ahaha. reat for a laugh HarryEtTubMan, The PS3 has only sold 6 million wordwide. Even if the PS3 does sell 15 million consoles by next year, do you actually think all of them will use it and do you think that the servers would be able to cope?

I'm going to try out Home on my PS3 to see what its like, I'll doubt I will like it. Just feels like a Second Life/Habbo/Runescape rip off and no this won't kill XBL.

In B4 Home kills XBL.

beast3431d ago

when games went from 2D to 3D... Enjoy your 2D XBL especially since you are PAYING for it.
