Posting over on the PlayStation Home forum, a Home community manager by the name TedTheDog has announced that the roll out of the Open Beta has run into technical problems.
NXE says hello... ;)
the final product will be bug free when it's finally released ... in 2014
dont worry they been doing that since who knows how long. WAIT B3YOND
That your only ignored by 115 people?
This was very expected. Just like 360 owners expect a dead console, PS3 owners have to expect delay. Sony obviously isn't as organized as they should be.
awesome comment... suprises me that a service that was set for release over a year ago is still not released and only being made available in beta form lmao... The fact that its not even running perfect a year after sony's original release date says something about sony this gen period... when they said Oct 07 Playstation Home they must of obviously knew it wouldnt be ready if its taken this long... The fact NXE was released before this is even more epic LOL and pure fail for Sony... And NXE is out unlike Home which will still be in beta phase rofl
n4g runs on Beta2.0 see above in the corner my friend...
Yeah, lol, and it still has its own fair share of problems.
But NXE isn't an actual online social world, its just a new OS based on the previously used interface of Windows Media Centre, basically, so I'm not at all impressed that MS released it before Home, or the fact MS had hardly no problems.
wasnt the nxe killin 360 consoles?? also anything thats online to this scale takes a lot of testin by beta users. thats why when home does launch it will run smoothly. nxe doesnt even come close to home on a technical level so do not compare them
NXE caused the RRoD to flare up again for many people Just google it. http://www.engadget.com/200... http://www.absolutegadget.c... http://www.reghardware.co.u... http://www.destructoid.com/...
You xbox fanboys have to realize that home is coming whether you like it or not and its going to really screw u guys... This of course was expected... if you didn't see it coming then well your not the brightest light on the "holiday tree" Don't anyone forget ROME was not built in a day so why should HOME?
nxe caused my 360 to freeze and resulted in data loss (lost all my save files)
This doesn't surprise anyone. We are used to this. Anyone remember Socom?
Yes, because heaven forbid this was the final product. This is nothing to have a massive heartattack over.
And you PS3 fanboys need to realize that 360 is here to stay and will continue to dominate this generation over PS3 in software and services. Now it's great home is finally seeing the light day but ashame it's going to be playing catch up for awhile.
You know you 360 fans should do? Stop bragging about how ya'll are in the lead and play your many, many games you brag about on the daily basis.
you do realise nobody but 360 fanboys takes you serious. you have made yourself a clear fanboy so now nobody will even respect anything you say even if it has some truth. nothin wrong of havin a favourite console but jus keep the fanboy sh*t to yourself.
yeah it's hilarious and im mad at sony because i pay good money for the PSN... oh wait thats right...no, i dont... its free. whats more epic is the fact that live costs money and its gonna be the one playing catch up. lives on par with nintendo wifi now. gotta love those mii's!
You can't just take a beta, throw it out for 14 million subscribers to "have at er" and not expect there to be some bumps. Hell, XBL, a service you have to pay for and is already established was down for a month and a half last year for some people because they couldn't handle the Christmas traffic (thanks for the diving game, by the way. It sucked.) And I seem to remembers delays in NXE's launch as well. It wasn't that long ago, I still remember that far back. By the way, my 360 Mii doesn't do anything. Is it supposed to?
it doesnt bother at all, i mean the they killed the hype due to continues delays, am just looking forward when ever they release it, i am expecting HOME to come sometime before ps3 price cut!
I never said you guys were going to go anywhere i am just letting you guys know that this is new and that its gonna affect xbox sales... I USED to own a 360 but decided that paying for something that i can get for free is not worth it so I sold that White LOUD thing so a nice sleek playstation 3
For a free title that never actually had a official launch to start with, countless delay's is quite the exaggeration and I don't think it will hurt sales of the title. Oh wait...it's not being sold so it doesn't matter. Did the numerous Halo 3 delays kill the anticipation? Gears 2's delays? Bioshock? GTA4? NXE's delays? Mass Effect? How about when Forza 2 was delayed or games we're still waiting for like Halo Wars, Alan Wake, or Duke Nukem? Or how about the delays of every single game Nintendo has ever released (I swear it's every one)? Face it, if delays killed anticipation for games there wouldn't be a gaming industry because no one would buy anything.
SUCKS! Unless you like dancing with a bunch of [email protected] I'll wait for the game specific areas to appear to see what they have to offer. I think i'll just stick with the sorry XMb instead.
Home has arrived :) FINALLY!
i've had the beta for 3 weeks, and no one is missing anything. except alot of weird stalking and gay dancing.
Home is what you make it. If you create the environment and you are the one who interacts with the people in there and you think it suck? Then what does that say about you? That you don't have any imagination to create an environment and your too antisocial to hang out in public because you keep going round calling everyone c0cks. I'm glad you hate it, it means I won't see you in there.
Is this shouldn't be happening at all.. the crap that is going down for HOME should be considered the Alpha stage.. not Beta stage.. and how long has it been in development? It's just a freaking 3D social application. It really isn't that difficult to do for big companies.
A bit of downloading involved. I'm looking forward to playing about with this for a while. Different console experience this. Sony could be onto a winner here.
It's a beta what do you expect in a beta, they did an open beta to work out the kinks for the real release? In a beta you release it so you can resolve any problems that the developers over looked. For those who think it's an easy task think again, this is design in my opinion very different than your typical persistent online games. First of all whatever is in your HDD can be pushed into the 3D space, something not seen in online RPGs would be one example. In the end it's just a beta as Halo 3, Crysis, or Resistance 2 had, just in a larger scale. There is no other online service delivering anything close to PlayStation Home and yes NXE was released before Home. At the same time XNE is a menu system with added features this is a whole new application made specifically for social networking. Yes, you can compare the two in features, but not in a technical stand point. Plus, I'm in it right now with no problems so this must be a region thing.
SOFTWARE could NEVER cuze HARDWARE FAILUR. your samrt enought to say that.
If you didnt expect anything released on the PS3 to not have problems then you have been living under a rock! Anthing released on the PS3 and uses PSN has problems! Warhawk, COD, LBP, Socom, MGO, Resistance, Motorstorm etc etc... But hey at least its free so no need to complain when your getting it for free..
Right... because Gears of War 2 has NO problems whatsoever with matchmaking. And Halo 3 DOESN'T take 2 minutes for each matchmaking and just when its about to be done, it suddenly restarts the whole process all over again for another two minutes. Well at least Xbox Live is free to play online. /major sarcasm
Please Sony have problems at launch, i don't believe it.
"This was very expected. Just like 360 owners expect a dead console," - Kamikaze135 the thing is Home is just having technical problems n errors which is normal on a launch with like 15 millions ppl tryin a get in. lol n we ps3 owners dont expect home to be dead. *sigh*
Hopefully still put up by tonight.
I'm shocked. No, really, I am. <yawns> I see the majority of comments on here are from people who probably haven't seen more than screenshots or articles. They're the ones being all apologetic for Sony and saying Home will be the best thing since the Playstation was first invented. It's also easy to tell who actually has the closed beta - they're the ones basically saying "I'm underwhelmed; what is this crap?". I've said it before, and I'll say it again: it should have been LBP-oriented (design your own Home space); not Simmish (decorate your own Home space). Maybe I'm completely out to lunch. Maybe in another year or two, when Sony FINALLY decides to unveil a completed product, it'll have changed so radically from the beta that I'll have no choice but to fall on my knees in utter awe of how wrong I was. ..But I wouldn't bet money on it, and Sony shouldn't either.
The point of BETAS are to find bugs like this. Looks like they found a few before the general public did. No big deal - Sony will just continue to delay this until they get it right. Personally, I expected as much. Their release date *did* seem a bit overly-ambitious. Here's hoping this issue doesn't take long to rectify.
Surprise. but this was expected hopefully they get it fixed asap as loads of ppl are gonna be pretty pissed
what are they doing for 2 years, are they sleeping? technical problems is not an excuse when they delayed home for more than 2 years..
1 year actually It was announced to be released fall of 07 It is winter of 08
i hope yyou know it's now open beta, and before was closed one? I think you don't get how hard it is
there will always be problems at first be xbox or ps.......So stop tryin to spread fudge.......So grow up.....
Jenzo was taking a jab at HOME's technical issues. NXE bricked and RRoDed many 360 systems. Both online communities were met with problems. This is for those who would like to excuse one or the other from their faults.
proof ? show me a solid website that ran that story it was made up by n4g fanboys
NXE did not brick systems, ok grasping at straws it MAY have bricked modded consoles but theres absolutly no proof of that either, if there had been an issue with NXE there would still be articles about it on N4G, it was nothing more then unfounded rumour, dont try useing that excuse as a fact. as for home having problems, well thats life folks, with the technical nature of home theres always going to be issues that need to be ironed out, give it time, it is still in beta form.
relax folks ... it will be sorted out shortly. You will be HOME soon enough flying Red Bull planes and picking up guys dressed up as chicks :) OK, I kid ... I kid!
This is why it's an OPEN BETA and not the final release build.
You've got to laugh!
Face mother fcuking palm.
that's why you have one bubble because your face looks like a palm..
Look What Happened when MicroSucka's Rushed the 360 Just to Beat the Competition It was out of Date 2 Days later And Every Single Xbox Blew up a Day later So take your time
Gee, letting open the flood-gates for millions of users and they're having technical issues? No one here (who isn't a fanboy) thinks Sony walks on water. It'll get fixed soon and we'll all be socializing and chasing fake girls.
THAT IT IS STILL AN BETA!!!! It is called a Public or Open Beta. NOT THE ACTUAL Service. So calm down people. jeez
You forget, people don't understand what the word "beta" means this generation. They think, "OOH, BETA = FINISHED PRODUCT DEMO".
Wow, I'm really surprised... Not. It seemed like a sudden decision in my opinion. Doesn't make it any less annoying however, get it sorted, and quick.
i can't even sign into PSN Network
same to me
Same I could earlier but they must of brought log in servers down.
Lol, wow. I can see the headlines now 'HOME crashes on the first day. Can Sony save Home from certain doom and destruction?' It's a beta. It's not the final product so there will be some issues.
they need to hurry up, i wanted to play pool before i want to work..and some more ice breaker..but this is just a beta and we really cant complain, i want to try out the red bull thing though..
Good luck with that. My experience has been that you can sometimes wait for hours to be able to play some of the games in the bowling alley.
Aye, this was expected - I'm not surprised in the least. And as someone else pointed out - this is an open beta and NOT the finished product. I'm sure there's not long to wait now though.
I thought Home was supposed to be available this evening?
It was planned to coincide with the weekly PSN store update, or so I believe. However, they have run into some technical hitches whilst performing testing, so back to the waiting game I'm afraid.
