PS3Life is a website with a lot of inside contacts. Today they reported that an anonymous source linked to the Sony camp told PS3Life that Sony wants to release Home and LittleBigPlanet simultaneously. Click on read more for the full details.
Really? Or are they just speculating from the Home Managers comments on the PS forums saying he believes FW 2.5 and Home 1.0 will come in Oct or more precisely he guessed at late Oct, exactly when LBP releases. A good time to make a big brand push when MS have their new dashboard releasing just a few weeks later. Maybe they have a source I dont know, but we can all put 2 + 2 together. Guess we'll just have to see but if I was a betting man, Id say late Oct is going to hold a lot for the PS3.
Agree, I wouldn't be surprise if Home is released with LBP. Imagine giant sack boys running around in Home. That would be great.
I agree. I was thinking the same thing when I read the Home producer comment on the release date.
Holy shi_t. R.I.P Xbox360. No price cut or games can save that system now. Still getting Fable 2 though.
How the hell am I suppose to play LBP and Home at the same time sony? god damnit! xP
sweet cant wait =)
I wanted to use that avatar.
Sorry bro, nabbed it as soon as I saw it :)
so this is ps3's 1 & 2 knock out combination home + lbp.... and add an uppercut from resistance 2, a right hook from motorstorm 2, a left hook from socom confrontation and finally a straight from hd wipeout.... xbox 360 your out for the count....
Wow October is going to be crazy so many games crammed in to a couple of weeks. OCT 14 Socom, Dead space, Saints row OCT 21 Littlebigplanet, Home, Fable2, Bioshock, Farcry2, OCT 28 Motorstorm2, Fallout NOV 4 Resistance 2, Naruto, Endwar, Quantum of Solace NOV 7 Gears of war Nov 11 Cod5, Mirrors edge Then to end it off with a bang have the killzone2 beta in November
i know, my wallet is hurting in advance. this year is one of those years when i wish i only owned one system so id have less games to buy. oh well, i dont and im gonna fail all my exams thanks to the next 2 months.. woohoo!
It's just like Comic Book Guy - I mean Sev - at Playstation Lifestyle. Make predictions that anyone can make, and then brag about how good you are at predicting.
And when that happens it will be the down fall of the 360 and the PS3 will probable rise to the top b/c both HOME and LittleBigPlanet are the most amazing things Sony has ever come up with. :)
Oh My God that will be sick to play Little Big Planet and Home day one oh my god if that's true it's a wrap everybody check out the hiphopgamershow it's on N4G right now www.hiphopgamershow.com aight 1luv and god bless
I'm not so confident that it's the truth, but it may be a good way to do it. Releasing in front of M$ and with a surefire win game would be smart, and not out of the realm of possibilities. It is a rumor though, so take it with a grain of salt.
Makes perfect sense. Both of Sony's juggernauts launch in the same time frame.
Great strategy. No doubt about that. Well, if it's true anyways.
LittleBigPlanet enforces the motto, "Play. Create. Share.", and Home does exactly that, but not to the extent that LittleBigPlanet offers. Both services released at the same time will definitely gain new customers and it'll be a good move for Sony. ...but I think it's too good to be true. I'm done waiting for Home. I won't be surprised if it actually comes out next year (even though the release date was slated for late 2008).
That would be amazing if that was true, but I highly doubt it. That's a little too good to be true
I'm done holding my breath for Home, that's for sure, but I'm willing to cross my fingers for this one.
[[xbots are such losers]]
Indeed,the Xbot Species are the Shame of Planet Earth
...once i get 'LBP' i'm not gonna have time for 'HOME'!!! ;) Bring out 'HOME' before Please! SONY;) Or stick both together and bring out erm 'LittleBigHOME'!!! ;-D SOON Only on xBox 360...'HOMELESS' ;-D
Home is far from done. You cant even use your bluetooth mics too talk. I doubt this article is telling the truth. Millions of people cant talk unless they have a ps Eye.
that's what patches are for mate- applications like Home and Life With Playstation always ship a little on the shallow side, but expand into greatness Home is at ver 0.98, it's very possible that ver 1.00 will ship simultaneously with LBp- as that would be a good strategy for Sony to undertake
well, sony could just release patches when it is released. Wait isnt this open beta or are they talking about the big deal?
...We already know that the full version won't be released. It will improve just like Google. Google is still in beta phase if I'm not mistaken.
Wait are you saying that the mic doesn't work in Home? Because in all the previews I've read it says there will be proximity chat using the mic. Or is it just that there are issues and it only works 1/2 the time (like many games I have played, PC & PS3)?
But get a Playstation Eye There a nice piece of kit And save a lot of hassle
if it's true then it's a 'gamers paradise'
It's a LittleTooGood to be true................get it! : ) J/P It would be perfect though If they could pull it off. And Sony please for the love of God......... ADVERTISE YOUR PRODUCTS!!!!!!!! That and a price cut is the only thing holding your system back!!!!
They still advertise the hell out of MGS. TGSI
i'll believe it when i see it.. it was rumored that trophies and Home would be out together first with GTA4 then rumored again with MGS4.. neither proved to be true..
I remember that.2007 was not one of Sony's best years at all
Home and LBP...the one two punch for Sony for the holiday. Nice!!!
we're all skeptical of course due to Home's development history, but it really seems about time to release it.. and let's face it, with Microsoft's persistent price cuts- Sony could do with a one-two punch of a couple of juggernauts
But that is just a little too good to be true. Truth be told, LBP is a community driven game so Home coming out at the same time makes perfect sense since HOME might be vital to LBP's growth. But still, I'll believe it when I see it
then i would need to sh!t out 60 bucks for LBP EDIT: i meant home along with LBP, but yea thanks for the explanation XD
No, the rumour is their release dates correspond. Not Home comes WITH LittleBigPlanet. Home will be a PSN DL made available to everyone. Probably accompanied by a FW update (well that's almost definite).
This Would Be Amazing...Im Not Sure about LBP i Defo Want Home!
LBP and HOME. That would be sweet. I can see it happening, but question, isnt HOME still in closed BETA? Then it would be HOME OPEN BETA wouldn't it?. Well anyway, it would be real sweet if they had 3D Trophie support ready when HOME AND LBP come out.
that would be the best strategy EVE-A
Wow. sony is really going for the kill
whos gonna be on home?! everyones gonna be on LBP!
I think (not facts) that they are looking to HOME to rapidly build LBP's community. If you looked at LBP's trophies, you can see that people HAVE to socialize. And some of the trophies require you to socialize with people NOT in your friends list. So I guess the idea is to meet people in HOME thereby expanding on LBP's playability (which is already infinite)
why is this article approved and the Resistance 2 Beta Impression not? Both are from the same site!! haha
That's what was said about the whole XBOXPure thing. Let's wait and see, eh? If sony are releasing Home this year, you can bet it will be on the 31st December.
Considering it is version 0.98, they've been considerably expanded the private betas recently with more invites to come and the director of home has posted on the ps.blog confirming a fall release...I'd say it's fairly likely to be true with or without a source to back it up. Its most likely that sony are aiming for late October but can't be sure to get all the bugs fixed by that time, therefore aren't committing to a more precise date.
...If it's true that is.
no thanks. fable 2 comes out on the same day.
no-one asked you if you wanted these releases..
...Then get FableII. Why should this matter to you then? :/
a ps3 but i need money the only games i want is R2 and KZ2 is there anyother games recommended i like shooters mainly (i have and xbox360 and it has yet to fail me ;)
yea man theres more shooters on the ps3, warhawk (to me the best online experience in the console so far) and socom(this is gonna be my first socom man, i can honestly tell you the gameplay is incredibly addictive , i love the tactical teamplay, now i know why people call it socrack) and im looking forward to R2 and killzone2 as well but if i have to recommend a ps3 game i'd say MGS4 (one of my two greatest games of all time),other games i love ,ratchet and clank tools of destruction and quest for booty, uncharted drakes fortune,gt5p,motorstorm and heavenly sword
Well StrikingDMC, there's WipeoutHD, and Little Big Planet, Motorstorm: Pacific...you have your choices.
No thanks kid, name something better plz
good thing because home and lbp mix well together, lbp needs home pretty much to have its full potential !!! cant wait!! psn and ps3 servers will explode on this day!!!
around the same time theres even MORE I havnt played Bioshock b4 so im lookin 4ward to that, Dead Space, Far Cry2, Lbp and Home Its gonna b a gamers dream next month
Dont forget FALLOUT 3 - thats the one I want next, along with LBP
to be released a week or so before LBP ships. This would allow me to get acquainted with HOME and focus more on LBP a week later.
LBP is going to smoke Fable 2. I'm sorry buy the first fable was a really big let down. I cant see the 2nd one being any different. Fable 1 was supposed to be the best game ever made. It was just really average. The game talked about choices but I couldn't find any. The only cool thing in the game was when you kicked a chicken everyone from now on would call you chicken chaser. Dont believe the hype for fable 2. Its going to be good, but not as good as they say it is. LBP is going to be amazing. The videos and screen shots alone make me want to buy it right now. I think user creativity is the big thing right now. All praise littlebigplanet!
...the ripoff of Miis and the XMB?
darkpower, the XMB was Microsoft's Media Center, get over yourself.
I think LBP was build alongside Home in terms of functionality. Strategy with LBP could also be to drive the demand for Home with tight integration.
It would be ultimately funny if the LBP commercial said, "Now including Playstation Networks Home." The net will crash like the stock market in the 40's. TGSI
Bit if true. OH YEEE
