MCV: SCE's global president promises consumers will love online service... whenever it arrives
What the hell is that supposed to mean? Come on Sony, do you really wish for your system to go by the name of "DelayStation 3"? I know they want to get this thing right, but how do they really expect to compete with LIVE when they say stuff like this?
As long as i get to try out the open beta this autumn, then i don't care when it oficially releases. From the sounds of it, it is absolutley awesome. Waitings one thing sure, but being a european, i had to wait forever to get the ps3. But you know what, im glad they didn't rush that system out because otherwise it would have ended up like the xbox 360, and thats not a wrong comment
I might just be a really impatient person but how is it that you can be so calm about sony delaying everything flare ? Do the false promises and lack of products not anger you ? Sony has their hands down their pants while MS is about to launch their second version of xbox live on a single console. ;/
I can understand that they want to get it right, but it's just getting unreasonable at this point. Sony needs to get this out soon, or a lot of fans are going to start feeling alienated. @1.2 Seriously, your fanboy colors are so blatant man. Changing the dashboard and a few simple services are nothing like Home. I understand that it is taking them forever to release, but don't go comparing it to something completely dissimilar.
Is a great concept and Sony has even admitted that the execution phase of the project was more intense than originally thought. I'm glad they have at least provided updates and apologies for the delays. Until then, there's plenty things to keep us busy until the service launches =)
At this point, I think MS might even launch there own "HOME" before Sony. I mean, you KNOW MS is currently working behind the scenes on a world where their Avaters can live. Avaters are just the first step in what will be MS own version of "HOME."
it really doesnt, if they give us 2nd home (organized XMB with Game invites, voice chat in game with another in a other game, etc.) then i bet most people can wait for Home. I bet he said that the launch date doesnt matter because well Sony needs fix any Bugs that may brick your ps3, so they dont want to have a xbox problem in their hands then a lot of people bring in their machine to Sony and others are left without Warranty.
Do you guys remember when Update 2.40 was rushed? Catastrophe. I know Sony sometimes take a hell long time to do something that might seem simple enough (In-game XMB). But for me, I don't mind waiting if the results are great for HOME.
I think releasing this autumn is a reasonable time frame. Every time I see new footage of home it looks better and better. Improved Graphics Better Functionality Faster Load times More Content Added Features
i am so tired of waiting
you know what bothers me? the lack of products with quality control.
but when someone is giving me something as awesome as home for FREE i dont mind waiting for them to make it right
is how some people are so hard on Sony for what they have accomplished in just a couple of years. They are a large corporation for one, sometimes I think people imagine the guys working on Home as just a group of old men working on it a couple hours a week. They like making money, that I can promise you. They are working around the clock trying to make this thing jawdropping in every single way. I don't know alot about development but I do know how much bugs arrise when you change coding, or improve on it. Remember guys, this is Sony and they always operate with the future in mind. I believe Home is that future, and I believe when it's all said and done, Home is a service that won't be matched by the competition for even 5 years to come. They have a pretty good idea of what we want. They have people scouting what we like and don't like. Also, it's a work in progress...so just let them finish it and get it right. Once again, they didn't get where they are at buy letting other companies make them look like idiots. Home is the future of online interactivity.
I don't know about the rest of you but when Sony is going to come out with something like HOME for FREE i don't really give a sh*t about waiting. I mean come on, it's FREE! And HOME is going to be the most amazing thing to ever have come out for the PS3 besides Metal Gear Solid 4.
If this gets delayed again... ...I don't even know how to finish that sentence, that's how mad I'll be.
How do you delay that which has no release date? The beta drops in fall, as far as I know that is the only date regarding Home. Out of all the people who moan about Home sometimes I wonder how many have actually tried it, I have and it's certainly not ready in it's current build. 99.9% of the beta testers would agree on that. The wait is some what annoying but I didnt buy my Playstation for Home so....
Fall 2007 was the original aim for release (I think they even went as far as to say November back at E3 2007), restated recently when a head at Sony was interviewed about HOME and its year delay. When Fall 2007 was slipping I believe it was Kaz who declared Spring 2008 as the new target, which later turned to Fall 2008. People haven't just been assuming these release times for no reason. They've been spoken publicly by Sony. I'm also not saying that I bought my PS3 for HOME, but I do sincerely hate it when the PS3 lives up to the nickname "DelayStation". I would have rather not even known about HOME until a few months before actual release than have to keep watching it slip.
They can't justify that they are holding back because people will potentially complain about what's missing; people do that anyways. Look at what's happening with FW 2.40/.41: non stop whining how they want this in it now and that in it now. It'll never end, but you can get a majority to stop complaining if they have something. I'd rather have something half finished and working than sit around with nothing at all. At this point, they have only to gain not to lose.
id rather call it delay-station then failbox edit im sorry that wasnt nessasary
....................wtf....... .... Delay time AGAIN.
I've seen a lot of positive reports from people in the beta at how amazing home WILL BE. But can I ask, if home were to release today in its current state, how well-received do you think it would be? I imagine it is still glitch-ridden and feature-lacking. But I'd like someone to tell me otherwise.
its not ready yet. I dont know why but they need to light a fire thats for sure.
Of course it would be a bad thing to release it early, but that still doesn't excuse the massive amounts of delays.
Can only take so much bs before they get fed up and go with a rival. If Sony do really want to compete in the online gaming arena then they will have to put alot more effort in and get HOME out before the years end.
this freaking matters to me! I supported the ps3 since launch, been waiting long enough....
Looks like Sony is going to reward that loyality with more delays.
but they need to at least have an open beta for everyone.....i know its free and im grateful, but when they keep telling us when its coming out and then retract their statements consistently, it does tick me off, all you fanboys need to chill out and get your head straightened; sony, MS, and Nintendo...if they do something we dont like, we need to be critical
HE confirmed the beta was launching this autumn, calm down.
no.... it does matter... when you announce things, consumers expect it to come out NOW!!!
i think we all know what this means. time to packing it in boys i dont think we gonna see it this year(open beta). but what i dont understand is the guys at sony are always saying we dont wanna rush things. i understand that but for how long can you keep pushing it back a year maybe 2. guys who say they would rather wait for it to be fully functional please i ask you would you honestly be happy if sony said you had to wait another year or 2 to get home. i await your replies. Edit: and if you disagree please explain why i just wanna understand your opinion
WE ALL KNOW home is not coming out this year. Sony has never said home will come out this year (but they said last year LOL). They HAVE said that the OPEN BETA will come out this year. Which tells me that home is not coming out this year.
i meant was the open beta not the full launch. with the way kaz and the rest are talking about trying to make it RESONATE with the consumers, i fear they might push it back again. i could be scratch that i hope im wrong.
YES it is in beta form. they confirmed it.
i get what you are saying if your not gonna reelease dont say nothing untill you know for shure
This year september. well it would be nice fed up of waiting like most ps3 users
As time goes by the interest in it is dwindling. I love the Ps3 and Ive just sorta forgotten about HOME. Release it when you can I guess. Just better hope consumers are still interested otherwise it will have been a huge waste of time.
Maybe they should borrow some people from Microsoft so they can get the work done.
It's part of the goals of Sony's Play Beyond programme:
No its part of a plan to see how long sony fanboys will wait
Oh yeah its so terrible Microsoft just had to copy it... Oh wait they DID LOL.
t mac is crying deep down inside.
Tmac crying ass is a Hoe
Hahahaha welcome to Delaystation 3
Fony's new mantra!
Man how lame can you mother f*cking Xbots get. HOME is going to be amazing and i don't care about waiting as long as it comes out this year and lets not forget that it's FREE!
i feel very sorry for all the ps3 fans.
what do you feel sorry for? Its all about games for me,home could come out in 2050 I wouldnt care.
i feel sorry for your stupidity, you have no reading comprehension? He said the beta is going to be released in autumn.
Home looks like it won't be ready no time soon.
Hey Thor they also said the Open Beta was going to come out last year & the year & the year before that Phil Harrison promised at E3 an Open Beta in that year. They already ****** up two or three (possibly more) Open Beta release dates for Home & they will **** up another one again. The Home Open Beta will launch with the Playstation 4 at this rate
yes it does fuc**ng matter! more reason to play my 360 for a bit longer
Take your time Sony, this is just another FREE service you are giving me. I didnt buy my PS3 for home, I bought it for the great games and blu ray home is just another bonus.
It seems Insomniac are the only group in the Sony camp that understand deadlines. Ah well..I think only me missuz will reap any enjoyment out of Home.
honestly sony has made me stop caring about home y didnt they just not announce it so early so people wouldnt experience so many delays.
Because that's how Sony rolls these days - selling promises, hype and trojans. Too bad for the peeps that fell for it. Game on for the 360 !
All you guys do is beoch and moan. Home is the last thing on my mind. I just want games, I'm getting them and I'm happy.
100% agree,I brought a ps3 for the games.Home is just a bonus that I don't have to pay for.
Kaz says "it doesn’t matter when we launch – so long as it’s in a reasonable timeframe.".
As I’ve said on numerous occasions, I’d much rather make sure we take the time to have a great service rather than rush something into the market – only for consumers to say: “This is not enough for me.” I want to avoid that. If we have the right service, it doesn’t matter when we launch – so long as it’s in a reasonable timeframe.
2 years behind? 3 years? maybe 4? To some the wait so far has been unreasonable
Don't you just love these xBot Lemming RATS on here!!! ;-D “I’d much rather make sure we take the time to have a great service rather than rush something into the market – only for consumers to say: “This is not enough for me.” I want to avoid that. If we have the right service, it doesn’t matter when we launch – so long as it’s in a reasonable timeframe.” + 'Kaz Hirai reiterated that the service’s Beta was still on course for an Autumn launch' ;-P Sound right to me;) Don't want to rush it like the xBox 360 was rushed out and ALL those people got 'RRoD' all the time and still do get 'RRoD,!!! ;-D PLAYSTATION®3+XMB™+HOME+ LBP+KILLZONE 2 = xBox 360's DEATH!!! ;-P
Sir_Ken_Kutaragi = Chump
wasn't the release of MGS4 going to be the death of the Xbox 360?
Lol Did you not see how badly raped the Xbox 360 was when the NPD results came. OUTSOLD in Microsofts own territory.
Just kidding. Seriously though, there are times when it's better to say nothing. Why make this announcment when no one was really complaining about it anymore since it was last delayed? -Death
everyone will be happier
This is getting rediculous. At least when MS do something like tyhis you can feel confident they will deliver. I bet they could release a date now and thats when it would arrive.
...all the while cutting corners & quality to make the deadline.
I don't even know what to write anymore... Let's just forget about it. Home? What's that?
If Sony has never announced HOME until say 6 months before it was a concrete release then people would have been hyped for it and had something to look forward to. Saying that HOME is going to be free and doesnt really matter when its going to be released is kinda missing the point. PS3 owners see HOME as a way to combat the 360's newly announced intergrated party system and thus if HOME doesnt get released soon they are going to be left behind even more so. HOME does have nice potential but Sony should cut out the BS refuse to give anymore details about it and then hit us with it when its ready for release - this way they dont get cut down for making empty promises (anymore) and the consumers cant hold them to any release date.
