Dogs vs. cats, water vs. oil and now PlayStation 3's Home vs. Xbox 360's NXE.
Home and the NXE are not even close to being the same thing. One is a 3d, interactive world and the other is a graphical browser!
Home for the win ! :)
but flamebait is the fuel of the internet....
Water vs. oil? Since when was water a propellant and lubricant? WTF? Find some better contrasts.
The question is how many casual gamers will actually want a PS3 in the future with this? I think HOME is the future. Right now it is still the beginning. I do have high expectations...
i also dont get why people keep comparing the two, they are not the same. the 'NXE' is the 360's equal to the ps3's 'XMB' Home is simply a community 'mmo' style application.
Home shouldn't be compared to NXE...one is a dash-board update , the other is a 3d online interactive community.. ne thing for those hits I guess
Home shouldn't be compared. If anything, it should be Mii's vs. NXE.
Its an insult to Home to be compared to NXE.
That's all i'm going to say;) Well i'll say 'HOME' is better than anything on other Consoles;)
Agreed what a dumb comparison. I guess I should make a list now of how the NXE is better than Home. First one being I can check my achievements. Can't do that in Home unless you call up the XMB which heaven forbid we compare apples to apples.
GiantEnemyCrab for onces your right, I cannot check my Achivments on Home, But I can sure check my Throphies and the Throphies of others [=
sure i can... i can just go right into the trophy room but of course thats when the room will be available
And, um...you CAN still use that XMB by just hitting the PS button while in Home (I have done it before) while you wait for that trophy room. It's just like the in-game XMB.
but....sitting? I mean..sometimes I like to sit in like Oblivion after I ran across the whole place (idky, its a habit i guess? lol) but...thats not a plus. lol
Actually Crab, you don't need to go into the XMB to view someones trophys in Home - it's just as simple as walking up to them and selecting to view their profile.
Fúck you game daily. We know you're doing this only to look credible. Go to H3LL.
Shut your fat pie hole Kim. Woot!
i saw Garbage today 1st time and he only spam Garbage comments on ps3 news
ughhh banned to the open zone... I'm telling you I think droids run this site
Home is for fat ass droids who don't have girl friends or friends and sit around playing in virtual world with their gay avatars chasing boys.
You should feel at home then, since all you do is sit on your fat arse and troll on here. You have mental problems wanker?
lol best comeback i've heard all week
i mean you really must be a loser/idiot if you pay to decorate your playstaion world
complete your Gaystation Nation experience. Sonyboy circle jerk parties here they come. I guess if I owned a PS3 and barely had any games to play,I would also be looking forward to this pile o sh1t Home thing LOL.
who says we have to pay?
ehhh did people actually read the article before approving this? Some of their Top points: -BBQ at Sony CEO Jack Tretton's Pad -Talking With Strangers -Load Time -Sitting If thats not making fun out of Home ..then dunno what is
talking with strangers is actually one of the best things within home. I've increased my friends list in the last month from 9 to 27 most of which came from people in home. All it takes is one comment on a video in there or one game of bowling... 1 tiny little thing and you interact with people more and more. I can't wait for the game launching to be made mandatory in home.
sitting is the most pointless feature in home
you have to sit to begin playing chess or draughts
Really? Home and NXE are nothing alike; why was this obvious flamebait approved
Because whoever runs this site has their noses so far up Sony's Ass.
wtf are you talking about? my comment has nothing to do with home.
funny that, because after playing on a friends Xbox360 the other day I'd say that now NXE is much less conveniant than how it was before, especially cycling through friends, it takes ages to go through and find certain friends ( in comparison to back when it was blades )
actually your wrong. before you would click friends and the friends list would pop up in the guide. you can still do that, only here they added in a friends list on the dashboard as well.you can use the friends list from the dash (which is slow to load up all the friends) or use the guide method wich is the old way.
Bob Dole liked the blades better. XMB is more user friendly IBD'SO.
Agreed Solid. I will compare the NXE to the XMB any day. XBL has been out for 5 years and has learned much and it's superiority is clear. Just the fact something as simple and taken for granted on XBL as doing cross game chatting that the PSN still doesn't do is just one of many reasons. Anyone complaining that they like the old blades better can just click the guide button and you have the old blade interface in a mini-menu. Did you read the article? It sounded to me more like it was making fun of Home vs actually making good comparisons.
There is nothing like the truth. People forget that the old blade system is still there. "Magically" depress the guide button....AND voila! Still there. For everyone criticizing the NXE, they know very little about it. The story should be comparing XMB and NXE on account Home has nothing to do with a graphical interface. Apples and oranges folks.
Talking with strangers? Loading time? Aren't those negative aspects? And why hasn't anyone realized this is pointed towards a community aspect? Not competition towards an entire online service?
he probably means that you can actually meet new friends outside of games and stuff, you can socalise without worrying about getting shot in the head. load times? donno. im sure NXE has better load times cause its a friggin graphical interface. i guess its jst outlining the face load times arent that long
1 reason why people will use NXE but quickly get fed up with Home. NXE is integrated, Home is a standalone detour.
Yeah and NXE is FORCED upon you, Home is optional.
If I want to use the old way of navigating I just press the guide button. You are FORCED to install updates that don't do anything on the XMB once a week. And install demos. And games.
You know Gamedaily is a joke when one of the categories is "sitting" Wtf. What a bunch of losers.
What an article: Sitting Loading Times BBQ at Sony CEO Jack Tretton's Pad My god MS better shut down XBL NOW before HOME launches because there is no way they can top those features NO WAY!!!!
HOME = 3D Interactive Environment that showcases PSN functions. NXE = Front-End/GUI/Dashboard that showcases XBL functions.
Oh wait no cuz the only features a 2d nxe has is rrod rrod mii avatar with cartoon characters and all Lame 2D features Honestly tards like u get excited with avatars too. HOME is very cool.Get a ps3 from someone and try getting inside it
First off, XMB was a rip off of Windows Media Center's interface. To say NXE is a copy off of XMB is incorrect, and even still Microsoft topped them BOTH with NXE. It's discrete left side placement is much better than to have to navigate left AND right in a center based scrolling interface. You'll see all of the menu options cascade to the right, which puts them in a better view. It could work either on the right or the left, but in the center it's just not as aesthetic.
Wrong ApocalyPS3. Windows media Center is a rip off of Sony's PS2 - PSX Hard Drive based TiVo like console/multimedia system http://uk.youtube.com/watch... http://en.wikipedia.org/wik...
Bob Dole remembers reading about that beast of a machine. How much did it cost??
PS2X was shipped in Dec of 2003. "PSX Main article: PSX (DVR) Sony also manufactered a consumer device called the PSX that can be used as a digital video recorder and DVD burner in addition to playing PS2 games. The device was released in Japan on December 13, 2003 and though a U.S. release date was never set, it is believed the system was sold in select locations for a brief amount of time in the U.S. The PSX was poorly received in both areas, some major features were absent from the first revisions of the hardware and experienced very weak sales in spite of major price drops. The system is considered a rarity and is now selling for around $500 on ebay (currently more expensive than the PS3)." http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... Media Center (XP MCE) shipped earlier that year, to promote systems that had Media Center functionality. Actually, its earliest version was in 2002. It was later revised in 2005, its last stand alone version. Its latest version ships with Vista in its Premium and Ultimate versions. http://en.wikipedia.org/wik... I remember because I bought an MCE PC back in 2003. XMB in its earliest form was launched as part of the PSP in 2004. MCE predates XMB by about two years. The time it took Sony to copy it, no doubt. And NXE beats them both.
Oner: You got owned on that XMB comment. XMB was after MCE and while I'm sure it probably wasn't influenced the similarities are striking. $ony get's a pass while MS is crucified for doing an avatar. fuzon: Your comment was so childish it hardly deserves a response. I suggest you try the NXE and see what you are missing with the PS3. XBL is hands down more feature rich and integrated than PSN. I'm sure PSN will get there but leave your borish RROD comments at the door or goto the Open Zone.
So I guess the lead time to actually create either has nothing to do with it then huh? (and that is also meant in agreement for MS as unlike others on this site I can admit when there is fault)...anyway the point is there is no way to actually prove one or the other "copied" each other...I highly doubt a side to side interface actually started only in 2002-3
a "fresher" approach,lol or more simple which is just dumb.
Youll see tomorrow. If you can cross game invite, 8 man private chat, etc, etc... ...then Home will definitely be better. Bowling can only be so much fun.
you know its kinda sad,even xbox 1 had voice messages. xmb still dosnt. xbox1>xmb lol instead of doing thise whole home bs, sony should of just put that team to work on XMB features like cross game chat and invites voice messages.. you know, the stuff xbox 360 has had since launch 3 years ago.
Yeah, but then Sony would be "copying xbl" right? Round and around we could go. Those are the only reasons you think xbl is better? You're digging way too hard. And to say Sony should've abandoned Home to focus on those features is pretty ridiculous.
Wow Home is such a Train crash.
But the whole Xbox 360 console is a train crash.
No,the X-box 360 is a collapsed star system.
Home is miles better than the crappy NXE and its avatars Hey man, i have both, in the home beta and got NXE when it came out, i say got but in reality i had no choice did i.
Do my eyes deceive me?
when you read the article (unless you were sarcastic ^_^), you'll see it's thier usual flamebait BS. Gamedaily and Kotaku. Birds of a terrible journalistic integrity feather flock together.
...that the 360 doesn't. It's becoming very clear that the PS3 isn't in the same category as the 360. The 360 is just a games console. End of storey. The PS3 is exactly what Sony has always said - A computer entertainment system. It's the crown jewel of anyone's Hi-Def home theater system and it's always evolving. It just so happens it plays kick ass games as well.
Makes zero sense. One is a software application/game you play in the onther is basically the interface to the OS for the system.
and it depend on who you are. If you have no life and chase girls that are actually guys on HOME all day you will find it boring. If you wanna meet people or friends and show them a little more of who you are and play games than HOME is perfect for the job. Sony keeps delivering without having to charge.
"...and show them a little more of who you are" How does HOME allow for that? By letting you dance in front of them or by inviting them back to your 'apartment' which will likely look quite similar to your own? (Of course unless you pay for some more unique items) "If you have no life and chase girls that are actually guys on HOME al
