Home>Mii-rip offs for the 360 poor x-bots..
Ha ha, that's right ITE. I have met a lot of good fellow gamers in Home so far.
this is what i want i want HVB to be the bowling game in HOME! If they could do that then HOME will blow doors open in the next 5 years! besides that game themed rooms should be kinda cool just to check out! I wonder if they will give trouphies for playing mini games inside HOME?
....its been delayed so much i thought it was a figment of my imsgination, lets hope my neighbours are on the curvy side and like to party
I'll bring the Hpnotiq and Hennessy. lol, anyway I can't wait for Home, it sounds like it's going to serve it's purpose well.
... lets make it a moving in party to remember sexy gurls RSVP
I'm currently in the HOME Beta and I'm afraid that many of you are going to be really disappointed when it is finally released. Its just so...... boring and uninteresting. I really don't mean to be so harsh but I don't know of any other way to describe it. Unless they amp up the content in HOME by a significant amount (and I mean a really significant amount) then HOME will more than likely fail miserably. Its a shame too because there are so many things you can do with it. It has the potential to be the defining piece of software for the PS3 but at the moment it doesn't look like that will happen. Lets pray they can turn it around. Right now there are, I believe, 4 main locations (plaza, theater, game room, & mall) you can travel to besides your 2 personal spaces (studio apt & summer home) and not counting the Far Cry 2 and Uncharted spaces. For HOME to succeed you would seriously need to up that number up to 10-15 main locations not counting any new game spaces. And with game spaces try to keep at least 10 up at all times. EDIT: Let me clarify that locations alone won't do it but new locations with new activities would. The mall needs to be bigger with more outlets. Let me buy mp3s at the mall and then download them to my hard drive. Incorporate the PSN store into HOME so I can browse the content at a store and select what I want to download. The same with the video store but also let me stream the content into my HOMEspace so that others can view it too. Let me go to a cafe and read the news. Create new mini-games just for HOME and have rewards for doing well. Have unlockable trophies in HOME to give incentive to stay there. Lastly, give developers free access to do almost whatever they want in HOME. Give developers incentives to creat HOME Spaces. And it would be nice to give everyone a full detailed profile with pics & custom avatars. Maybe something akin to a MySpace profile.
I respect your opinion because you are in the Beta, but I think that is why at TGS Sony annouced all of its partners in Home. I think they will release it once a few more of those partners add the content they want. I see this as like when the sent out the trophy kits to the developers they just sent out the home kits to developers to add special rooms in home. We will see, but I think once home is released they will call it the open beta and make improvements to it throughout the year.
@the used version I respect your analysis and I believe it is genuine. What you've stated as lacking in the beta we hope they rectify in the final release but kudos for your honesty.
Bob Dole's got tha cake and ice cream... and strippers... don't forget them.
OFF TOPIC: I got an extra Resistance 2 beta Code. Dont know what to do with it.....Any takers??
Oh how I hope this is coming soon. PS3 is about to become the online leader.
november 17th im in the beta
Oh I hope you're right! Can't wait for home since I can't afford to pimp out my real home, I'll pimp out my ps3 home. Then I can invite all my friends over to check out my pimp pad! Online of course...
...sounds about right. I just got the new P:ToM and it talks a lot about Home. The editor talks about how we'll be trying out Home for ourselves very soon. He also talks about how new features will be added to it 3 months after launch, 6 months after, all the way through the PS3s life and beyond(PS4 Home?). This was in the editors note. In the end of the separate article on Home he says that Home will finally release and soon. He goes on to say that if we're messing around with Home on Thanksgiving, he wouldn't be surprised. So I'd say we'll all have Home by Thanksgiving.
Home is a perfect example of gaining a stronger hold on your user base by keeping them into something that can be transfered from one console to the next. Imagine a day when the PS4 comes out and all of those that have entered into and created lives in home. They will definitely want to see their digital selves in the new format when the new PS comes out and Home is still alive and well on that platform. It will be pretty cool to see how they make the transition.
Not that I care much but t will be nice for those that do when we get the actual 3D trophies. Are they still doing that? They should have super realistic textures like all the treasures ( <---is that the right word?) you find in Uncharted?
its definitely coming out by the end of this year, count on that. LOL at phanton disagree. Are you in the home beta to disagree with me? When Sony announced that Home was releasing by the end of this calendar year, they mean it, cause they promised it, Their investors would start selling their stock if it doesn't release by the end of this year, even if its beta, they have to release it.
Sony is competent. They know that they need to get the ball rolling. They know they have a line-up that can compete for the next year and half or more. They have some momentum. Even with the 360 price drop the PS3 is selling almost as well. Microsoft will have a big holiday season, but so will Sony, and Nintendo. And in Sony's case, the best will come after Christmas. Home is going to be a huge part of that success.
bubbles up for that statement.
i like sony products but as for their promises go.....this gen ive learnt to take them with a pinch of salt
True, but their investors are expecting this to happen this year, or else they wont be happy. Edit: these phantom disgrees dont stop, someone probably likes me here.
pwnsauce, I think it's also because someone hates certain people around here... Anyway, Home all the way!
To all PS3 owners .
Whats you're source for that date?
There is no Demo for Home you liar, stop coming up with dates that come up from your *ss
its the 17th or 19th of Nov 2008,all I remember watching G4TV saying its coming the same day when the New Xbox live is launched....Im not sure if its the demo or the real Home but its coming for real in november..
Home won't be a demo. It will be the full release. I'm in the beta right now and when it hits in less than a month you will get the full package.
thank you for the update.what is the real date?
no one knows the real date, Ted hasnt told "us" yet.
home sweet home XD
And though it's really wishful thinking on MY part, something STILL tells me to not put anything past Sony to bypass the open beta stage altogether and release Home final 1.0. Judging from what we've seen from SOCOM (which wasn't the best move), and LBP (which is close to being an awesome move), I'm seeing a trend from Sony to go from closed betas to gold releases. It may be the same thing here, though it's a longshot guess...I'd put 99% of the opposite happening and 1% on my prediction happening. And 100% either of them happening before the end of the year (hell, maybe by the end of October).
<insert "im homeless" joke here>
I just made a European account and I noticed that, the sign up looks really good and smooth
Smart move by Sony, this kind of advertising, will definaly make people who "dont care" move back into the fold. Sonys sheep dog might be lazy, but when it comes up in gear, thoose bloody ships ran for their lifes :D ...
November 17th, 2006 - PS3 releases November 17th, 2008 - HOME Any correlation? You bet.
I guess we can only wait and see :-) .... but I have a good feeling about this
ONLY A FEW MORE WEEKS UNTIL YOU ALL FIND OUT THAT HOME IS FUN FOR ABOUT AN HOUR THEN IT'S WORTHLESS AND ALL THAT WAITING WAS FOR NOTHING! CAN'T WAIT :D
You have the Beta? I freakin' love HOME. It'll be much better than everyone is in it...but I still find it pretty awesome.
im on home beta ;) love it. believe me, when home releases to public, it going to be awesome.
^^ dude .... you dont know whats comming your way ...
Im in the Beta, right now yes its boring. But if they just amp up the content of items and spaces then it would definitely be on track. Maybe they will do that when it launches or just before
what's coming my way id like to know? There's nothing in home that you can't watch on youtube. So where is the good part of home? Go to every video and the person in the beta no matter who they are complain of not only how little it is but how boring it is... NOt only that but most of the people they try to talk to don't even have mics... That's what I base my opinion on maybe you can point me to a video that shows something good in home because I can't find even one.
It's just a beta, meaning not fully featured...we'll see once the full package is released, here's hoping it would be a ton better than the beta.....
i wonder what excuse new xbox owners will use to justify their purchase. And if price is one of them you really are stupid. like a jew once said. "I'm not rich to buy cheap stuff" thats why jews own us all and we shouldnt complain or hate them cause they are smarter than 99% of the world. anyway peace out and have fun. emotions are useless just drop them. haha
Most people just dont want to be bothered. PS3 has an older gaming crowd then the xbox. I have like 3 mics and a pseye. But i'll only use them if i'm playing competitive or I need help etc...
ya i really don't use my mic either unless it requires strategic based gameplay or i'm really drunk which i'm more of a toker
I love the morons who tell people Home is going to be boring and then talk about it as though it were a game. Newsflash, it isn't. You can't judge Home the same way you judge a game because IT ISN'T A GAME!!!
Im going to guess its coming out sometime in nov. This pretty much just proves its coming this year.
my roommate's PSN account yesterday. my buddy is in the Home Beta, but he says it's boring because we aren't in there to socialize with him, and not enough people socialize. i'm still looking forward to Home (how can i NOT be, it's FREE, why complain?), but it's the least of my concerns over the next month or so(finding a new job, getting married, and being able to afford all these new games coming out are top on the list). i actually DO believe that Sony will release it this calendar year, but it'll happen when it happens, no need to flip out about it whenever there's a hint of possible release.
I hear you man, I work full time, married with a kid, news junkie and game junkie, and i am in a band. I vote we move to all days becoming 48 hours. Anyone with me.? Seriously in one week I will be playing, Fallout3, LBP, GTA 4(still working on it) and to boot I finally checked out Call of Duty 4, and now I am all hooked on it. I have to say I wish I would have bought it much earlier.
I'm really sick of hearing about this wait-in-a-virtual-apartment-fo r-virtual-games-to-come-out-jus t-like-in-real-life vaporware. I understand that online is the only place you ps3 dorks will find friends, but come on, this is getting ridiculous... Maybe if you're really lucky, it will come out a few years after the launch of the PS4, that is, if Sony doesn't fold before then.
