Looks like the folks in Sony's tech department are having a few problems getting Home out to the masses today as promised.
yep I have the login probs also. Its a broken Home
It's also the beta and the first day. Dur ta dur!
fanboy quote of the day "Sony stinks, Home stinks, the PS3 stinks " lol we all know you have a PS3 right......................... bahaha mate you sound like a brat kid who doesn't have enough money to buy a PS3 and hence get Home, God of War 3, Gran Turismo 5, War Devil, Uncharted 2, New insomniac game, Final Fantasy Versus, White Knight Chronicles, Jak 4, Resistance 2, Little Big Planet, Motorstorm, Infamous, KILLZONE 2, Heavy Rain, Trine, The Agent etc....... lol poor mart P.S Reported your comment as offensive, that's the most ridiculous foto ever. I can't believe you'd go to all that trouble to go to your mates or get one of them to take a photo..........disgusting.
Mart dont put your 360 in the toilet. You're so RROD.
cough.... you sound like someone who disappeared some time ago because everybody hates him.
I understand that this is not the release of Home, but it does suck that it's not working quite yet. I was hoping for a little more in the open beta, but like I said it's still just a beta.
Hulk Smash! Did I piss you off? Home is in beta mode! What did you expect, a grand opening? Dur ta dur!
Home has connection issues (although im fine) and NXE bricks your console with RROD (im fine again) but i know which one i would be more annoyed at...
As you can see from the photo MART posted, he is full of sh!t lol.
Guys Mart DOES have a PS3. I have every reason to believe him. As far as I know, he bought it for LBP. He's probably just dissatisfied with Sony for their botched Home release. Well Mart, don't worry, just ignore Home and pretend it never existed. There are great games available for the system. Home having problems is not a negative for the system, because up until today we didn't even _have_ Home. Sony has overpromised and underdelivered with Home. FACT. If you disagree with that, show me where the trophy rooms, video and music sharing, and a wealth of other promised features are in Home and I will eat my hat.
Of course this is going to happen, it happens during the launch of any high profile event. Online games have problems every time they come out until it's patched. And this is worst because there are at least 8 - 9 million people trying to login to home at one time, so of course there's going to be some delay no matter how much Sony planned for this. This is like Black Friday millions of people scrambling for a few hundred thousand items nation wide = problems.
Can anyone name a major online related release that DID go well for PSN? This is the only reason to come to N4G anymore! Everytime something screws up on either side you can come here and see the brand worshiping apologists squirm. After R6V2, TF2, COD4, MGS4, GTAIV and SOCOM all having broken online functionality on launch day who would ever assume Home wouldn't shat the bed at every stage? I mean seriously. The hardcore brand sodomists will say free, patience, xbl failed that one time, say whatever you want at the end of the day the reason this is a big deal is that its now EXPECTED. You fruits on this site can call me biased for 360 all you want. I'll admit PSN does a couple things better like better original downloadable games and being free. Other than that PSN sucks hard. Weak in game text chat, slow downloads, online broken at launch, 3 of 10 people with mics etc. Just as the 360 has the crappy hardware stank on it so does the PS3 for crap online functionality. This is expected.
You know whats funny, standing in Home Square and talking about XBOX 360, PS3 fans going crazy!
Thanks for telling that it was you, I already reported you with some friends of mine for advertising and trolling, now that I know it was you I'm gonna call some buddies there :D
Home sucks, PSN sucks, Ps3 sucks, Sony sucks. It's time to sell that noob and buy yourself a new better than ps3, xbox360.
How much is MS paying you, shill. What a sad, pathetic existence you're living, think MS gives a sh*t about you and your pro-360 rallying. Go do yourself a favor and die in a fiery plane crash. Love, Goodfella
I knew it was just a questien about time before we would see theese articles
These gaming sites are so predictable. gaming media have just gone to such low toilet bowl standards and the funny thing is that, they're fine with it.
Like this want expected, well at least from me. Us PS3 owners have been waiting for this for years now, and now that Home is available to almost everybody, most of the PS3 owners are downloading Home and with the amount of downloaders downloading Home today, of course there is going to be technical difficulties. MS too have the same problem with their Xbox Live time to time.
I meant to say "this was expected" :)
STFU u pu22y ur just a retard that rly doesnt know anything then 360 sh!t hahahah loser..
An open one at that. Its not the real release.
Home director Jack Buser is excited. "I am so very happy to announce that PlayStation Home has now officially entered into Open Beta. Restart your PlayStation 3, and you will see the PlayStation Home icon under the PlayStation Network column of the XMB. Click on the icon, and you are in." When a Sony rep. says something like that you would expect them to have there stuff in order. Click on the icon for an error message and use the excuse that it's a beta.
It's just home beta!!!!! shut up it's free! Patience is the key!!!! (did I leave out any lame things that have been spammed in these articles?)
Patience since they promised Home to release Fall 2007? It's well over a year later and still its broken? NICE. N4G is free, but it works... Hotmail is free but it works... AVG is free but it works... Many other stuff is free but normally if things would be as bad as Home people would burn it to the ground. Why are you all still defending this? Sony just doesn't deliver period.
You forgot Mart... you want to burn Home to the ground. A 360 actually did. Gmail is free, and it goes down time to time. I'm sure Home will be stable once everyone isn't hammering it all at once.
Mart, I've lost count on how many times Live has gone down on me, so please shut up.
You must be having internet connection issues because in my experience XBL almost only goes down for planned and announce maintenance periods. The only time I can remember recently they had problems was after christmas last year. I believe that time is very similiar the probs Home is having. Too many log-ons at the same time.
Hell it took konami 4 extra days to get the Metal gear online beta up and running so in that respect I give the Home team props.
so when NXE launched and xlb slowed down the sony fans jumped on it...now home launched psn crashed and burn.. but teh cell
haha, it was also the hottest story on N4G. NXE hiccupped and then it was XBL sucks, 360 fanboys get owned, you pay for garbage, PSN > XBL. I'm looking for the links now to show the contrast. I guess no PS3 people can complain because it's free so you get what you get.
Eh, this happens with many major releases. Nothing will ever go perfectly and the issues will (should) be sorted out in due time. I don't see why everyone is yelling about how Home is a failure because of some technical problems during launch. Just have something that is starting to disappear now days - patience.
i prefer sony ps3 over xbox360 but hey that doesnt matter cuz u kno both are good for me been having lots of fun with both.But Keele doesnt have to open his mouth like that talking crap when he dont even kno.
just home. It be cooler if any of you had some tips & tricks.
I got into home on my USA account and theres a few changes here and there but theres still very little on there. You aint missing much at the moment. My UK account fails to login into home still though.
im at initializing and that's as far as i can go. what a waste of time. i shouldn't have downloaded this.
both sides need to relize not to get upset because when xne came out the ps3 kids were alll over the very small and rare problems, so be ready for back lash over little coments, but ignore that.
Bingo!!!! It's hard for some to take their own medicine. I even have a comment in the NXE problem posts that were overrun with $ony people telling me how much the Xbox 360 sucks. I said: "Home better launch without a hitch or it will be payback". Here we are! Except I don't feel like giving it too much sh*t, it's free, an open beta and I will just sit her with a smile knowing despite what many think none of these companies are perfect. I'm sure in a day or two Home's growing pains will be behind it. People on all sides are too quick to call things a failure before it has a chance to get worked out.
So busy playing all my games....HOME can wait.
That's exactly what I'm doing. Doesn't work now, no use crying over it just try back later or something Home will still be there tomorrow.
The Uncharted space is very nice. The locked doors lead to more spaces, the codes to the two doors upstairs are; Right door= 24312 and Left door= 41675, I could not get to the downstairs door the bar was packed. There are also some new arcade games in the bar, nothing better than free mini games. I would still be on but my wife came home from work early today, so I am going to have to wait until later tonight to check the rest of the new areas out.
What is their problem. What have they been doing. I read that they've redesigned the Home square. Yet again. Why don't they spend their time -Adding promised features -Adding actual stuff to do -Fixing their servers and network code Rather than redesigning everything so that it looks pretty? I'm sure nobody really cares how pretty it looks; if there's nothing to do there and it disconnects you half the time why is anybody going to use it? They've just barely got away with their claim that it would release this year. I'm glad to see it out the door just so that they can actually get off their arses and add stuff to it now. On a more positive note I'm sure most of these problems are on their end rather than in the Home client itself - it happens with any online game a few days after release and Home won't be any different. If these problems go away I'll retract hmm..... 45% of what I said.
They added a ton of stuff to do today. New UFO game in the new central plaza the Uncharted space has new arcade games, the radio in central plaza got updated, that was just the stuff I found in my 30 min. tour. And it is still all free. I am personally looking forward the Red Bull plane racing.
please 360 owners be quiet. you are going to look so stupid when HOME is running smoothly. we can't help it if you can't experience HOME so give it a rest and go make an Avatar
thank god its not working cuz otherwise i would be on it instead of studyin for my tests tommorow =p.
I really want in right now. You're making it tuff to cope when you telling me all the cooler stuff.
Home is packed to the brim with people. It was like going to a major sporting event in the shear number of people there.
40 cal is dead on! It was packed.
the picture that MART sent has been take in the wrong way, what he's trying to say is that the Xbox3sh1ty is the PS3's poo....HOW COULD U GET THAT WRONG!! hence why its called X-BOX-3SH1TY!! and its also called, if any of u remember from my past account this is one of my past comments: ''!ITS OFFICIALLY CONFIRMED!'' the BLOW-UP-BOX-UBER-EXTREME-ULTIM ATE-EXPLOSION-1440 (the successor of the xbox720, since the PS3 will beat and trash the hell out of the 720 on the first day it comes out, so MS's backup is xbox1440) will be releasing after E308, since the BLOW-UP-BOX will be officially dead and would have lost all its Exclusives to the PC, PS3 and even the wii LOL!! (i LMAO! when i wrote the wii), the new xbox1440 ( thats 720+720= 1440) after the fall of the CRASH-n-BURN-BOX and the NUCLEAR-EXPLOSIoN-720 will feature something completely new, YES! NEW!!, Microsoft have yet to unveil this new Furnace but rumors say the new feature is a built in nuke button, but this time it has 10x's the explosive power as the 720, the 1440 was tested on a distant planet, the end result was a non-existent planet, YES!thats right, it took the entire planet....LOL!
Uhhh......... what? As much as I disagree with Mart on most everything he has to say....... I really have to say...... what?
am having problem with home when it gets the intiashing it stops den says request time out start.jsp
looks like they already fix it if you couldnt get in b4 u can now
I have been online, in Home, with 4 of my friends all night. It took a while to get into Home at first but once we were all in, it was smooth as butter. I would go somewhere and I could either send an invite or they could "Go To" where I was and there were no problems at all! Edit: There was one problem. The problem we had was that the mics would have a problem but I would expect that to be fixed soon.
