Other "game-type metaverse" projects in the works
Would love PlayStation Home 2 on PS5 with seamless transitions between different areas.
Yeah, although I’m worried if it does come back idiots will say it’s jumping on the metaverae trend not realising it did this years ago
They'd have a hard time doing that if it's called Playstation Home 2. That raises the question of what the first one was.
You’ll enjoy life much more if you stop worrying about what other people think :)
...in VR2 would be awesome as well.
Given you're talking about online speeds and connectivity, not the PS5 itself, you're not escaping loading screens.
SSD speeds so quick you could open a door in PS Home to walk your Avatar through a portal to launch a game. They could do something like Peach's Castle in Mario 64 and your library of titles are the portraits
That and a new Modnation Racers
Agreed wholeheartedly. Playstation Home was amazing!
You’re being silly. It was stupid as shit.
Second Life did that before everyone.
@ Jin:” Would love PlayStation Home 2 on PS5 with seamless transitions between different areas.” I second that plus a vr option added to it
it really was. miss it. it had alot of potential.
There's still IMVU and Second Life but they're not quite like PS Home. Btw folks the Home restoration project is still going and they have brought Home back online through the PS3 emulator. So if y'all interested in goin back HOME there's that.
I'm interested! I was wondering if that project was still live or not.
If he praises it why did Sony shut the app down.
He just said it was ahead of its time. Super slow HDD made it awful when traversing areas.
It was trash 🗑️ and it still is. Walking around to go into stores etc is cringe and makes no sense at all. The hype around metaverse is totally overblown
@OptimusDK You don’t speak for everyone. Many people enjoyed it. But I do agree with the Metaverse being overblown.
@OptimusDK You don’t know what you’re talking about. This was a good place to meet people.
As good as it was It missed the opportunity of becoming huge... Imagine if just eat or similar and you could order food from within checking out menus of local restaurants, Or items direct from Amazon etc whilst in shop in game checking out the items in real time, or even clothes from your favourite shops. The thing could have been Enormous ! I realise it could be dangerous in over spending but hell kids max out parents cards on fortnite, just need to keep control of them.
I had my nice apartment set up lol. Right by the water lol. It was pretty great lol
Jim Ryan is right when he talks about PS Home being ahead of its time and it's sad to see that Sony missed the boat with bringing it back for PSVR2. It could have been a good alternative to Meta's world and would have been a hub that created a BUZZ for PlayStation products. Something that Meta can't do due to not having lots of established IP.
Now Playstation Home was amazing. Truly ahead of its time. There is still a very dedicated fan base even to this day that wants to bring it back. Some guys even brought it back through emulation servers.
If I wasn’t playing actual games I would always hang out ind PS shone. Most of my friends list is from Home, and still speak to some still to this day. All the personal spaces you could own, the public spaces like the beach, and games you could play like bowling. Watching movies in the theater or in your personal space with friends. Truly PS Home was ahead of the times.
I definitely agree. The thing is Sony has always been ahead of the curve. Playing music CD's on PS1, DVD, PS2 Eye Toy, PS Home Blue Rays on PS3 hell even 3D games but everyone looks the other way when Sony innovates and never gets the proper recognition I believe they deserve through all these years.
Playing music CDs on the PS1 was not ahead of the curve. The TurboGrafx 16 CD was the first console that used CDs and it played music CDs too. The Sega CD was next and it also played music CDs. The Eyetoy doesn't get credit, because it didn't work well amd once the novelty wore off within 30 mins, all 8 games that were released in N. America in its shortlived life were boring and terrible. PS Eye was worse in terms of support(I owned it). At that era, the Xbox Connect was far superior in tech and games(regarding games, that makes it far worse since Connect games were not great either)
Sega Saturn played music CD’s as well. Released a month before PS1.
