Sony has updated the trademark for PlayStation home again, which makes it the second time this year. Soho Engine -- the engine used for PS Home -- trademark has been updated too.
Are they trying to bring it back or something 🤔
I wouldn't be surprised, if the making PlayStation Home for PSVR2
This could be huge. Just look at VR Chat and then go bigger!
Exactly make hime like vr chat combined with rec room style games. And personally id love sports champion style games in the home area that you can join and leave at your leisure while others are able to watch and commentate
I've said it before and I'll say it again. Home was cool but the big problem was constant long load times. The M2 drive in PS5 would eliminate most of that problem, so they might want to bring it back.
You got a point. That load time was ridiculous and outrageous and one of the reasons why I didn't go back to it
Yep. With consoles now, the actual dream is feasible. It wouldn't surprise me to see Sony launch it.
load times def played a bit part, but I also think a lot of the promise features not making the cut also hurt it. Like the trophy room, and I think had planned for shared viewing stuff. I think now would be a great time to bring it back though, tech has evolved and all
Agreed load times were long, anyone else think the future of playstation main conference events will be in HOME for Vr and non VR users moving fwd? I'd much rather spend time in HOME in VR watching the shows than on YouTube or twitch.
My issue wasn't really the load times. Home just felt kinda pointless to me. I tried to like it, but I never felt compelled by any of the features or activities. I think the idea is really, really cool. I hope Sony reboots it, but in a different way.
Exact reason why I couldnt play/use Home for a longer time. If the load times are effectively eliminated the world may feel very cohesive going from one area to another lol.
Even with instaneous access it stays the most stupid thing ever created... Boring like hell
I think it was cool too and having VR now could make it cooler.
The load time prevented me from ever clicking on it. So it was a no go from the beginning. If they make it snappy, they maybe unto something really cool for social gaming. Make it PSVR and its going to be amazing.
I think it's a given, non existent load times going from one area to another would be a huge plus this time around. Hope they bring back XI that was great in HOME plus great for chess and bowling etc. VR and HOME fits like a glove imo plus I heard they have eye tracking tech which regonises who you are looking at in HOME and will automatically engage chat with the mic? When looking at someone?
PlayStation Home was freaking amazing, I had so much fun with it especially back then with the Xi storyline! Hopefully they bring it back.
XI was awesome, met so many playsation friends helping each other out with puzzles, plus HOME 2 with funfair rides and funfair games like hook the duck, air rifle shooting at targets etc, big ferris wheel, roller coasters all in glorious gfx and RT funfair with all the lights 😊 I used to have someone on my friends list who worked on Xmas content for HOME
It was such a great idea. I love the idea of a virtual hub/menu instead of the flat tile UI we have now. It had so much potential but technology was lacking. Now they could definitely use it properly.
I sure do miss Watchung stuff in the theater or playing bowling or pool
I use YouTube now for film trailers but back on ps3 with HOME it was always the theatre I'd watch the new trailers on. HOME was def ahead of its time. I spent £30 on furniture when drunk one night lol, never did spend much time in my apartment though 🙄 what a drunken mistake that was 😂 🤣 and I was a sucker for odd t-shirt here and there lol. Apparently HOME was profitable for Sony just not billions in a not so user friendly MT world back then, imagine gamers today with there MT fettishes
i enjoyed playing bowling the most, pool was cool too.
Please bring back PS home it was awesome.
I'm fairly positive and I said this like a year ago, that PS Home should be the free game included in PSVR2. That would be pretty awesome and a great way to incentivise it.
Just make it free for all vr and non VR users. They'll make there money like they did with HOME Tshirts, furniture, hats and caps fun fair areas, casino etc
Playstation home was never a game and it was free on ps3 so why wouldn't it be now? Besides all you guy's who claim to hate MT's are more than willing to throw your money at sony for outfit's and furniture in home.
I never said anything about throwing money around, ps home would be amazing in VR. It would be like ready player one, especially with the haptic feedback in the controllers and headsets they announced. Yes, the ps3 version had micros, but it was a free game. That's different than a fully priced game with micros. Go back and pay your subscription for another month for game demos on gamepass.
EvertonFC who responded to you mentioned money. All I was saying is home was never a game and was free with MT's . And what does games pass have to do with anything? I never mentioned anything xbox nor do I even own one.
Umm… Are you all forgetting the thousands of dollars spent by individual gamers that was lost when they decided to close the server? I’d never put money into this.
This wouldn't be much of an issue of it's built apon the old HOME and if all that purchase data is still intact. People could log back in and have all their items available. I agree tho people spent quite a lot of money and it was shady for them to shut it down.
Yep I spent about £50 over 6 years or so, I've moved on now got my money's worth. So are you saying casinos should give you your money back at the end of the night?
That is also the case with many many online multiplayer games. Gamers spent thousands of dollars on weapon upgrades, amor and other items. Servers closed, money is lost. Thats the name of the game.
That was the Beta (that lasted like 5 years). This might actually stick around.
The PS5 specs and online infrastructure is miles better now, a 14 year tech gap. PS Home could be something special if Sony put the resources into it.
VR is garbage so was PS home, if you loved it enjoy
Thanks for the insightful feedback. Twat
Thanks for making me spit my drink. XD
If Sony does bring back Home, I would be happy if they gave you back all the things you initially bought back on thr PS3. Although I myself didn't spend a lot of money back then, I did buy myself a few personal spaces like the yatch with the whale. I knew of people at the time that spend hundreds of dollars on places and avatar outfits/skins. Giving some of that stuff back to the consumer for free would be a good guy move.
PlayStation Home was awesome
I know it wasnt great and all but it was a bit too early for its time. I had great memories of ps home. There were pretty fun mini games and a good amount of free prizes and such. Really cool maps too. If the annoying long and very often downloads can be rid of then ps home would be great especially on ps5. Oh God...I can imagine a vrchat like experience if this was vr lol.
Indeed, a bit like MAG, their vision was greater than the tech they used to implement it. I'd love to see updated versions of both.
It would load sooooo much better on PS5. Bring it back.
With improved loading and social features of today I would love for PS Home to return.
I was a pretty good virtual pool and bowler back in the day I'd love for this to return I can imagine the possibilities
It was always chess I used it for. For ten pin bowling, I couldn't see past the version they released that worked with the camera and PS Move/Dual shock controls. Great mini games though
Chess was great fun.
i had some good times on playstation home we use to bowl.
This could be a game changer with good VR support!
I won't forget the first time I visited Home on PS3 as a kid. A trio of people started chasing me in the square, and they wrote me messages like "die you bastard!" Very pleasant visit :D
I used to be there every day to play bowling. And that Xi treasure hunt was great.
