PS4Home: "One of the greatest things about the PS3 was the fact that it offered direct access to PlayStation Home"
And as yet Sony hasn't said anything about PSHome. Whether they'll just patch and port it as is, which could keep things like loading times, or upgrade it to something far faster but wiping out everything ever bought on the old version.
Home wasn't really all that great. Sounded good on paper, but in practice it was lame. PS4 will be fine without it.
Sony gets asked on a near weekly basis if PSHome is coming to the PS4 so if it were not you would think they would have addressed it already. I'm still expecting this will get the VR treatment so may end up at GDC.
Home is free and optional with revenue for Sony. I enjoyed Home but With the public. I'm sure the hate ensues...
It wouldn't, Home was boring, it would still be boring on PS4.
maybe for you :)
If Home were more like the marketplaces in Remember Me, it might work better. I actually like Home, but it needs a lot of work to draw in a larger crowd.
I really don't see why everyone hates home. it's free and an easy way to meet new people. way better then what Microsoft and Nintendo came up with.
Why not? Home is an online, 3D interactive environment for PlayStation users to explore, meet up with other players around the world, play mini games and interact with a social community. It's only equivalent would be Second Life, currently on PC....which also has a pretty big community. Believe it or not, there ARE people out there, who enjoy life in an online world. Watch Life 2.0 on YouTube and see for yourselves. http://www.youtube.com/watc... There's something personal and captivating in...controling an online, avatar based representation of YOU and shopping in virtual malls and stores. Buying the latest virtual clothing, outfits, furniture and apartments. Decorating your houses with virtual furniture the way YOU always wanted to...or dreamed of, and inviting your friends (other online avatar based people) over to your apartments for a social gathering or gaming event. Learning how to be a glitcher and defying the virtual construct by finding ways to glitch outside the maps to go places and do things you wouldnt otherwise normally be able to do. For some, it's a way to make friends. PlayStation Home was the first ever avatar based 3D, online, social/gaming community to ever appear on a home gaming console...while being a unique breed from the MMO genre. Something that has never been done before. It has potential and plenty of room to develop and grow, over time. It certainly doesnt hurt being on the PS3...and it clearly wouldnt do any harm existing on the PS4, either. If it wasnt a successful platform, it wouldve never made it thru 5 years, to date. So, it's clearly doing SOMETHING right. It's free to enjoy, it generates revenue for Sony and it's affiliate supporting developers, microtransactions are always optional and you dont HAVE to install it, if it's not your thing. Seriously, if PlayStation Home bores you...youre not doing it right. LOL. Theres a ton of people and things to interact with in Home, tons of things to do, things to buy, things to explore. Theres always some kind of cyber drama, online gangs and wars to engage in...or laugh at. LOL. You have to immerse yourself in it, take it all in, be a part of the world they've created for you. Interact with people and join conversations. Make friends. You wont get far on Home, if you dont play a good social game. If you just aimlessly wonder around, expecting stuff to just pop up for you to do...of course, youre gonna be bored. And a bit disappointed. You HAVE to go out and interact. Be a part of the community. Play the games. Get the rewards. Buy some virtual bling and be popular. Believe me...if ALL THAT is too hard or complicated for you to do in an online environment..then IDK how you make it in the REAL world. LOL. That being said, there is no real point to Home. No high score. No trophies or achievements. No master boss at the end of the level. No end game. No plot. No story. Instead...Home is what you make of it. It's based on YOUR experiences, in an online environment. Like an MMO, except without the battle mechanics, lol. We NEED a platform on the PS4 like Home, if not Home itself...for people who enjoy these things. To say or advocate otherwise, would be to deny a community of people their venue for existence...and that's not right. PSN and the PS4 can satisfy ALL gamers, be it casual...core, hardcore, and even the social gamer. Yes, Home SHOULD be on the PS4...and I hope someday, it finally gets there. ^_-
Well said. +1 Sony made a lot of cash with Home. I'll be pretty surprised if there isn't something like it on PS4 eventually, especially since PS4 is so much easier to work with than PS3 was.
I met a few friends in home but after playing DC universe Online and FFXIV which let's you have your own house home becomes somewhat irrelevant. Think about it. In DCUO or FFXIV you have lots of players trying to do certain goals. The fastest ways to make friends on them is party up, chat a bit and then help them out in a certain area or have them help you out. Boom you just made a friend. If you get to the point where you guys talk about stuff other than the game invite them to your house or meeting place and just chat. In home you're just randomly talking to people. It's like real life where you have something in common with something and a few hours later he/she is on your friends list. That's fun and all, just talking and interacting with people and playing mini games/ hanging out. But to me having a driven set goal like "Hey, wanna help me clear this dungeon" or " Let's explore the new area that was added in the last update" is better and more socially rewarding and more importantly it's more fun! And if you meet them at a rather low level you can help each other level up which is always fun with another person than by your self. It's in my opinion to complete goals and task with people and helping them out or vice versa than just talking and hanging out. Just my ¢72. Back in 09 there was NOTHING like that on consoles. But Now with DCUO, FFXIV, Destiny, The Division and hopefully Everquest Next there's no point in having basically a MMO with no combat or goals and just talking. I can do that with my school friends lol. However I can't slay a dragon or raid a town full of bandits in real life.
Would be interesting with vr headset
Home will come and I bet we will see it with vr eventually.
