Horny dweebs will always find a way to introduce sex into any 3D experience and make things insufferable for female avatars. Sony's virtual world "Home" has been around for only three days, and it's already happening.
This is written by the same "writer" that wrote the now infamous CNN article.
And xbox live is full of foul mouth, racist, homophobic screaming little brats. Is that better? Offending users in Home will be banned from using the service. There is also a blocking other users option build into Home.
I've never been on XBL, but ALL online communities have this, be it WoW, PSN or XBL. Speaking of XBL, I saw this a while ago, same thing and kind of funny: http://www.youtube.com/watc...
i been on home and believe me, xbox lives users are alot worse than psn users. i seen so many underage foul mouthed, "your mom this, your mom that", "f*** you f*** you" when playing halo 2. i never met so many americans online before being so rude. home is different, so many variety of peoples from across Europe, few from Australia, few from america. the abuses are alot less than xbox live's abuse. "grief reporting" is the reason for punishing these wrongdoers. Since home is still a beta, things happen.
This sort of reminds me of my last play through with Home, some kid was being followed by some random guy. I kept hearing the 12 year old kid "Stop follooowwwing meeee!" funniest thing I've seen on there lol
also keep in mind that while the other article was bull, this has a suprising amount of truth unfortunately...
There both different though. Your avatar is for show to everyone so it makes for easy pickings than being anonymous in a game. As a girl in home you probably be harass in about 10-20 seconds, unavoidable unless you dress up as a guy,
this is the same guy who wrote the CNN article? lol maybe he is making up for what he wrote because i dont know about you but saying somewhere is FILLED with sex friends will make lots of ppl come a runnin hahahahaha but really I find myself enjoying HOME maybe its a bit sad that i meet a girl from Ireland maybe its sad that i have had more then a couple converstations with adults anyway FUK DIS GUY I guess Spore was filled with GAYS because everyone made a penis i dont see ppl having sex in HOME and if thats what you see maybe you need to divorce your wife and go fuk some strange
There is a commentary about the guy here: http://playstationarmy.blog... People should also understand things like this are only possible because users of Home have actual freedom to do something with their avatars.
The thing is though, there is a wide range of blocking and reporting options when you press select so if you really don't want to be around these people, you can arrange it. That's not an excuse to do it though and I think these people should be permanently removed from Home and maybe even the PSN.
just press select,report and chose sexual harassment.mods check him out. this is what ted the dog the home community manger said on it "A very interesting and topical discussion. I'll explain a few things about our approach to moderation in Home. Firstly, even our moderation policies and practices are in beta. We've got both in place and we'll change them if need be. For example we're looking to change a couple of things to better deal with certain types of harressment. I cant go into further detail, its simply not ready yet, but the point is we're adapting. Another thing is that all moderation will be done by SCEE staff. We will not be recruiting volunteer moderators. Its a job with customer services, business and legal ramifications and not something a volunteer force should be asked to do. Our moderators are invisible and the grief reporting mechanism alerts us to people we should be watching. However grief reports are not something we take at face value, we always treat them as an alert that something needs to be investigated rather than a call to zap someone just because a grief report was submitted. Although invisible our moderators will be showing themselves occasionally to let people know they're there but moderating whilst invisible brings us a powerful mechanic and a huge efficiency at the same time.Thats probably stating the obvious but its worth saying anyway. Suspensions and Bans are not from Home, they're from PlayStation Network and we have more control than I could mention (or can discuss i detail) and certainly more control than I think most people realise and we can do that without mac or IP addresses getting involved. With regards to "bad people" we like to consider the intent of their actions. Some people can annoy others through innocent actions and some people just set out to annoy. We like to think we'll seperate those out and educate one group and moderate the other. Obviously something on the scale of Home will need public education schemes rather than 1 to 1 pep talks and we'll work on that too. So, I'd like to reassure you that we will endeavour to tackle problems and we've got plans in place that we're working to right now and that we can adapt if we find improvements. Its early days still, this phase of the beta has just begun, but we're making progress and will improve over time." http://community.eu.playsta...
So one guy happens to bump into a group of about 4 people stood around a female avatar (which could be a real male person). So now obviously that means Home is 'Plagued' with sex fiends because of 4-5 people out of the millions.. What a douche!?! This really is the weekend for dumb articles. Is there a prize going for the dumbest? Writers really have it in for Sony and the PS3 these past few days.
It's called "Block User"... It also takes literally 2 seconds to block someone. Faster than I can do it in Counter Strike and COD4
Has this guy played Uno?
wtf. Thats a lame video. Anyway, everybody is expecting this. This is nothing new in this kind of "game"
Just hafta bring up xBox Live, eh? Typical. "Given Sony already gave itself license to police its virtual world, it best get to it." What does that exactly mean..? o.O If they find you doing anything.. "wrong" they can do with you as they wish?
Lol. That's funny, the girl pwned them in most of that video.. Anyway, that stuff happens everywhere, as you said. I was at a friends house and my girl was playin the PS3, on Resistance, and was gettin hit on by some dudes that sounded like they haven't even hit puberty yet, as well as some older men and one female. There was 7 total. Ha. I don't even pay attention to stuff like that when it happens. I simply mute people on my x360, unless I think it's funny, which half the time it is because some people are stupid and it's fun to laugh at em.. ;)
Home is still in beta testing thing about how bad this will be when (if) they ever release the full verison of home. Oh and all the ps3 fanboys trying to make home sound better by saying how bad XBL is are idoits. 1st off no matter how bad xbl might be it never make home or the psn any better. 2nd 95% never even so much as used XBL. I've been on XBL for over 2 years and have only run in to a hand full "foul mouth, rude and racist" player. 3rd the raeson you dont see more of them on psn is cause no one uses a mic this completely defeats the purpose of any co op or team games. 4th psn is a very small when compared to XBL so you more bad and more good players on XBL.
Can be found in the report option they have included for each of us to use while in Home. Use it and move on.
I love these types of people being online. They make me laugh when I play with them.
Wow, Chris Buffa and Brian Crecente use Home?
Most people do this crap to have fun. Something you laugh at, if you dont like it dont watch it. Nobody told you to go their.
sh!tting on the PS3 this weekend?
I tried making a ''hot'' female avatar to see what would happen and nothing happened. If you're surrounded by dancers, well you can just go away or block them. Yeah it happens, but it's not much of a ''problem''
i saw it, its pretty funny but wrong guys were going up n like 'your so not a chick, i bet your really a fat old man, you scary pedo you'
Sony has created a New place called HOME to breed peado's .Mark my words Home is a Massive Flop I can't understand how Sony is loving digging their own GRAVE. have they gone mad who's running day to day business at Sony .....Monkeys looks like. Also their should be AGE restriction on purchasing a ps3 because instead of fun for all family friendly ps3 console they have made it a console for enticing poor kids to get into HOME which is Plagued By Sex Fiends.
I thought ps3 user was mature ahahahahhahah damn they worse then kids on xbox live damn. sony got a problem i can c now on the news 15yr kids playing home and them bam mom they rape me mom we gonna sue sony.
Has it's share of little kids, and some adults that act like kids. Get over it.
. Now how in the H3LL do I get this permanent marker off my LCD? . DAMM YOU PP ! ! ! . P.s. This happens in EVERY online chat environment. Check your menu, because "Ignore Sex Act" isn't in there but "Mute, Block, Report" - ending in - Ban . . . IS! ('Ignore Sex Act' hasn't been in the menu since Phil/Home Beta 0.63 ;)
hey pp or should i say "proud p*ssy". when's the last time you got laid? You wish you could have a shot at those teen boys on home to grope and whisper all your pro xbox nothings to. oh it makes you just droooool to know they're having soooo much fun without you.
oh i am SO there!!!
half fun now ...
how much ca a person hate on sony? this is the same guy that wrote the CNN ship sinking for PS3 yesterday.
its very likely he is looking for a job at Microsoft, and there is no better way than with the viral campaign he has going on. He seems like an unhappy dumb ass that spreads lies and misleading information in everything he touches
Yeah it's amazing how much hatred some people have for a console that is a reliable high quality product. Some people are just haters though.
Can't live without the haters, though. Haters make the world go 'round..
all i can say is smh
what... i've been using Home for a few hours now and i've yet to find anything particularly incriminating must be the US servers (surprise!)..... the EU servers are civilized... no-one is saying anything racist or sexist and generally everything is relaxed and social
Now let's not make this into some sort of a "oh well my nation is more civilized than yours" pissing contest. It can happen to anybody at any time of day on any social networking program or game. And when I play COD4, I had some rude british guys saying stuff like "you yanks don't know how to shoot for shiat" See what I did there?
at like gone 12 it gets really bad, my m8 dressed up as a girl and got 5 freind requests within seconds of being in the home square and he always had atleast 3 guys folling him, which isnt bad its quiet funny but there was 1 pev who folled us for like an hour and kept asking for pics, should of reported him but we waz having a laugh its not that big a deal, every1s done it, it never gets old going up to a girl and saying "Hi im Ben Dover"
Read the article at Eurogamer. EU is more civilized, BS. "Female avatars get attention everywhere, but in Home, they're absolutely mobbed, relentlessly shadowed, danced at and messaged. It doesn't help that most people don't have keyboards plugged in and aren't brave enough to use voice." http://www.eurogamer.net/ar...
wrong with this guy, did SONY retrench you....? Edit: @Ashton, SONY wouldn't do that, PS3 users are a bunch of gentleman, only the 360 users do that. They rape themsleves apart.
Hard,,,that's why he's got so much hate for Sony
This dude really, really hates Sony.
He probably loves them but couldn't think of a better way to generate hits. So he's douching it up... speaking of douche anyone notice how when you say "Hello" it shows up as "****o"? Yet you can still say douche all you want. The censorship in home is ridiculous when you can't say the pre-typed Hello without it being censored for having "hell" in it.
BOTS, only BOTS would do this : -------> Horny dweebs will always find a way to introduce sex into any 3D experience and make things insufferable for female avatars. PS3 users are all civilized grown up gentleman.
says the shemale i bet u probably one going around with a female avatars sucking people sack boy
Oh did i piss you off....? You must be one of the uncivilized BOTS that pray on some unfortunate 360 female users with nasty words. Don't be angry, it a great thing you admit you're one of them, what great courage you have.... You should be proud of yourself to be a Horny dweebs.
sad litle boy
@freak What happened to your face making too much fun of pigs eh? Mommy never told you not to make fun of people. Btw read the damn headlines atleast it is about Home not live where the f!k did u come up with the ideo of bot doing it? Bots would rather throw the ps3 from 3rd floor than turn it on.
I've tried Scope, Dentine, even a Tic Tac, and I still can't get the taste of burlap out of my mouth! . So . . . SheMales, Horny Dweebs, Sackboy's, Females & Sex? . . . and 90% of readers just thought: "Where do I sign up again?"
Oh, look who we have here, it the infamous cheater, (You know what i mean), didn't told you not to cheat on ppl....? Or the little beast in you being acting up again...? Lol..... Hahahahaha. Bots would rather throw the ps3 from 3rd floor than turn it on. Oh so you rememeber the vid, but you forgot it the 360 that is being thrown down from the 3rd floor.... *_*
i see guys dancing by themselves of groups of guys dancing or guys and girls dancing when i'm on home. i don't see the point of the dancing but they aren't hurting anyone. i also (while in home) had a guy call me sweetie.(and i'm a guy!!) but it's no big deal. so what's the authors problem?
isn't a good enough reason?lol
While i was on it i expected to see huddles around the female avators but no, All looks pretty normal to me. You see them wandering about on there own or in groups no different to normal.
=.= the world is also plagued by sex fiends go do a report on that instead...Seriously I guess anything with avatar interaction [Secondlife, home, anything else imvu or something] someone is going to say sex fiends. Still waiting for Chris Hansen to appear and say something >_>...
Can't get girls in real life so they make virtual one's... One of the saddest things I have ever seen.
someone feels insecure about themselves if they have a hard time viewing anything sexual.
damn, i suppose the majority of home users are ps3 fans from N4G...
also known as d-bag retards
you are a very sad person, you are judging someones character and personality by the console in which they bought/play insults to gaming (let alone humanity) dont come much closer than that comment Civilized people are good people, and you are not a good person
He is just a hater does he even have a PS3? From what I have seen in the open beta...home is awesome....
Please! Do you realize how stupid and childish you ps3 nutters sound when you blame MS whenever a problem about your system is brought to the public attention. This guy in the video is gutter trash and seriously lacking in common sense when it comes to how to act around other people virtually and probably I would guess by his "urban venacular" in public as well.
Go play your gears of war 2 and get out of here my friend. Home is awesome...usless you been in home then you have nothing to say... peace!
ps3 cant be marketed to the casual market. i mean, you got a flying penis in lbp and now this on home. sony is such a joke this gen..
i know a way sony can sell some system tell homos we got a home for u
There are a lot of guys running around as girls. But there was this one real girl and she had a sexy voice. We were all talking to her and dancing with her, LOL! She was in the middle and everyone was around her dancing doing the running man,LOL! Home will be a hit! Anytime you can get homos, pedophiles and horny guys looking for girls people will come. Expect MS to copy it when Xbox 720 comes out even though they stated that it's so 2005..
homophobia is a mental condition, you need to get yourself checked out m8! i lolz at your pitiful life btw, its funny how a single person can have such a f*cked up perspective. I know for sure its not because your such a M$ fanboy, I dont JUDGE people by there console (in fact i know people with 360's who are very nice sensible people, even some of them are here on N4G) you need to take a lesson from some different people and stop idolizing PP panasonic.
OMG, im so sorry panasonic, i was thinking of the wrong person so sorry!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!
wait nvm, i did mean panasonic...jerk
