sweet.. I'l be checking out the new Stapler puzzle and playing some poker in the Godfather 2 space today :)
Yeah, I gotta say, the poker's not too bad. I won my first two games! ^_^
please sony keep dis suport up for psHOME!!
Well, Sony did say that we would start receiving 3 new game spaces per month and this isn't a bad start at all. I was pleasantly surprised. =)
I logged in last night to play around with Xi, both the games they put up are very simple yet are incredibly fun. Texas hold em Don style, I'm in. Plus I unlocked some stuff from RE5 for my summer house. They are offering tons of great content as of late, and its all still FREE.
I have no clue how ignorant idiotic gamers are, actively trying to find ways to dogg on HOME and try to limit developers from bringing extra content to gamers. No other console is offering 1/10th what the PS3 is offering via HOME. The wii hardly has DLC for it's fanbase and the 360's fanbase has DLC like the PS3 fanbase but the PS3 fanbase are the only ones that get more more extra content for their favoured games via HOME Game Spaces. Not only can the PS3 fanbase enjoy a game and it's DLC but also enjoy extra content where they can meet up with tonnes of other gamers - that aren't on your friends list - that love that game, discuss and have fun playing the game's specific HOME game contents, listening to music and watching trailers all while chatting with each other. I mean look at RE5 and God Father 2 for example. The PS3 base are the only ones that have a dedicated space for these games with addition content that the wii and 360 base will not have PLUS a great way for fans of these games to have access and talk with the developers of the game live in space. ... AND ALL FOR FREEEEE! If MS had something like this YOU KNOW they'd charge at least $79.99 per year to access this and the 360 base, that diss HOME for 49cent DLC, will fork out the money and justify it the same way they justify paying an extra $250 every gen to play games online. I truly believe gamers this gen have got to be the dumbest gamers of any generation. Addition content for free and you still complain cause HOME is not a game. HOME isn't a game, deal with it and get over that, damn.
"I truly believe gamers this gen have got to be the dumbest gamers of any generation." ......................... After reading that Im gonna agree, LOL. But in all seriousness, if people dont want to decorate a home and say thats stupid is their opinion wrong. If you like decorating a space thats fine also. But to say people who dont like it are stupid is just nonsense. I guess people who dont like Killzone 2 are stupid also? What about people who hate Halo 3. Or love Viva Pinata? Its all an opinion. IMHO I dont see the draw to home. I tried it for a week and didn't like it and will probably not go back. I still haven't deleted it yet though. But I understand that people get into social sites like myspace, facebook,pedo's (lol) can be drawn to it. But Im not into any of that stuff so for me, home is a drag. Does that make me dumb?
Please tell me they fixed the text so it is readable on NTSC SDTVs
You know What Sony should do to support home and attract more people to home? They should enable trophies for Home as I'm sure that will attract quite a lot people especially trophy whores such as me. Not that i don't go on home anyways,but it would be nice to have the feature there along with the trophy room.
Sony's biggest mistake with home was releasing the beta to the public too early. Many people were left with a bad taste in their mouth and may just avoid going back. I haven;t evened updated but if I continue to hear good things, I may check it out.
why is there no godfather space in the UK home?
Well, the US and UK Homes are pretty different. It most likely has something to do with licensing and/or testing and just has to be confirmed for you guys. ALTHOUGH, I know Jack Buster, the man for Sony who talked about the 3 Home spaces per month was part of PlayStation Home STATESIDE. Whether or not that has anything to do with it, I'm not sure.
and d great thing is its still only in beta!! any idea on what will hapen to take it out of beta???
Well, I for one think it will be quite difficult, at least now, to rip the "Beta" tag off as Home is constantly changing and being updated. Perhaps when Sony gets a firm model for the look, feel and features for Home we'll then see the "Beta" tag come off, but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
Honestly, it might as well stay in "beta". That would mean it's always under the mentality of a work in progress.
I hate it that people say Home will always be updated, so it will never be out of Beta. Windows is also always updating, and so is Firefox, but they are out of Beta. They will release themselves from Beta, when the system is stable. Stable, meaning, they can add new places without it bringing down the house (see what I did there). Because they are always receiving updates is not a reason to stay in Beta.
I'll have to reinstall Home again soon and see what all's been added since the last time I checked it out.
Someone disagrees with me? So, what you're saying is I shouldn't bother to reinstall Home? It's a bad idea to check it out? OK, thanks for the advice.
is full of disagree ghosts... BOO!
ur not serious rite?? dont tell me they left us out again!! have dey even given us d uncharted and farcry spaces yet??
@Irish-Cliche Yes they have given us the Farcry space but not the Uncharted one. By the way, you're not texting on a mobile in here so why not try write a full word instead of phonetic abbreviations..its good for the head. "Rite" and "right" do only have one letter in the difference after all. :-)
are we allowed swear in d open zone??
the run dmc outfit with gold chain and kangol bucket hat and glasses? hilarious ! Im really thinking about getting the resistance 2 black ops uniform and maybe a ninja suit. i cant lie they look pretty cool to me. Has anyone seen the text adventure games at XI ? Thats exactly the kind of games I used to play when i was a kid. See how far games have come? If anybody remembers then maybe you can remember one text game adventure called: Jack and the Beanstalk. You know what Home desperatly needs? Better Ambieance ! Its too quiet and plain in home. Sony or cydonia x needs to raise the volume of background noise and put some kind of RPG music or something.
thanks for d advice
yh dat wud b cool. do u know y my madcatz headset would nvr work in home?? EDIT: bubles plz EDIT2: i know but b4 dat. mayb it wasnt available 4m d start at least not in ireland!!
They disabled voice chat.
@Bren86 They disabled voicechat but you can still phone people in Home and voicechat with em' as well as have open chat in clubhouses and your personal spaces.
Voice chat is still disabled?? How lame is that? Any word on it ever coming back? I stopped checking out HOME when they disabled it.
Open mic voice chat is disabled, and I for one am thankful. I got tired of listening to some random jackass's idea of music.
Still not worth going back Home.
Im wondering how many people are in there? I try taking a headcount sometimes and I lose count. It really feels like a gigantic universe of virtual reality and I can lose hours there. I never played second life and this application is completly amazing to me. I just really cant believe this is all possible on a playstation 3. Yeah N4gN4gN4g, if we could play our own playlist it would help a whole bunch. Sony took out the voice chat to sell chatpads. They think they are slick.
Home Managers Locust_Star and CydoniaX have confirmed that they're working on an Mp3 type item in Home for users to play music from their HDD. Also, the reason they disabled voice chat was because of constant verbal abuse, specifically towards women.
I'm pretty sure the only confirmed reason for disabling voice chat was for stability purposes. Once they removed it from public spaces connections started giong through consistently. I'm sure there's a post in the PSHOME Forums but I'm too lazy to look. They've also said they're working on bringing it back. Doubt it'll be anytime soon though.
it seems always pretty empty to me
I sorry to say this but playstation Home feel like a rip off from second life it need to be more content to stand on its own, more like a RE shooter with in gameplay or something new that make its stand out not just a house were you just put all your trophies, I mean make it its own game
Just curious, have you been in Home lately? Have you checked out Xi?
.... IT'S NOT A FREAKING GAME!!! Is N4G.com a bloody game? damn, what's wrong with gamers this gen? it's like most of the community insist on being ignorant to hell.
Just got into Xi... that alone makes Home worthwhile.
oooo let me decode Jess's secret document. Then what?
Why play games at all? Get to the end... then what?
It is called using your imagination.
Like this guy above me,Spike47. Ive seen dudes begin thier quest and they dont go about finding the anwsers for themselves... no they rather ask everyone in the room what the answer is. Eventually they get to a quest that no one in the room has the answer to so they have to figure it out themselves and thats when you see it, Total Meltdown. Lol! Like Spike47, they say this is dumb!, this game sux! youre all GHay! I hate this sh!t! Everyone go to hades! Lol! Cydonia should really shouldhave a height chart that says you should be this tall to get on this ride. Thanks n4gn4gn4g, I always lose count at about 42-55 people. Njshadow, that sounds hot. I hope its sooner.
how dumb they really are . i agree completly Xi is neither dumb or hard .You just have to think a little . Any normal human can do it ..the only real challenge was the jess video quest that needed real teamwork ... other than that xi is a fine event and the true dumbs are the ones unable to solves these little quests
Yeah, I actually really enjoy when a challenge arises that is based on skill like the new expert challenges today. Makes for a much more fun AND competitive atmosphere IMO. =)
yet someday you may get your wish like... oh idk, going into the resident evil space and launching a co-op party. duh...
You're allowed to get heated, but I wouldn't take a chance with cursing. I don't think it's permitted. And those lighter words that are permitted are usually frowned upon.
some people speaking just to show how stupid they are...
but theses spaces should be in the EUR home as well ... the EUR Home has not even the guitar hero space.. BUT the regular spaces got updated but it don't know what has changed . anyway i have some cool free items to buy ( got 9 free clothes today ) so i won't complain much .. also 2 xi items since i've retrieved the 6th fragment .. More spaces in the EUR Home !! that's all i ask
Chucking good money after bad.
these updates are cool
LOL! who do you wanna flame? PM that punk that pissed you off,LOL. I have a hard time figuring out why its bad that home could be a second life/sims rip-off. if it is then so what? Big whoop. What's the problem? I like it & so do many others. Had I been forced to accept 360miis I probably would have shot my ps3 for being homo.
Home's coming along nicely. Infinite possibilities for future content.
being irish i dont understand how he slaged me but he wont be getting any gold 4m me or drinks 4 dat matter!!
Poker is enough of a killer app for me.
chess was kewl when voice chat was working
as a inital beta tester, I had my doubts since content was lacking and removal of some key features had me let down, but this type of new game related content and minigames, really shows Sony has future built into their hardware and software. Home being free totally rules, if you dont like it dont use it
Checking out Home as soon as I get home. ^^
yes finally.... i gotta check this out today. i hope they make it competitive with some prizes to win. any kind of prizes would be cool.
Texas Hold Em Poker? I'm sold. My visitations to HOME just jumped up.
we only have one space :( the resident evil one. I dunno when we are going to get all these other cool spaces (uncharted ect.) I havent checked the one out for today yet tho.
since im bored i wud like to ask do u like irish!!
hmmm my check up on home for the 1st time in 5 months tomorrow
we also have far cry
We all have access to a plethora of free to access Texas Hold 'Em games. How is it that the one in Home just happens to be the worst of the bunch. And its really not even a contest. This is not Texas Hold 'Em. No headsets, but get this you can't even use text chat at the table. I have a 60 inch 1080p TV and have to squint to see the cards. Let's not even get started with the general population of Home you have to play with. These people spend hours upon hours trolling Home looking for women avatars when they know 99.9% of the women avatars are MEN like themselves. Let's pretend for a moment and say that one of those women avatars does happen to be a women. I GUARANTEE she looks NOTHING like the avatar that represents herself. These are the people that have turned Home into a useless, boring, broken paradise for the segment of the Sony Defense Force that likes trolling for guys pretending to be girls. It feels like using a rest area restroom when you log in the 5 mintues to see the new stuff. I literally have to wash my hands off each and every time I leave Home. The only thing these new poorly constructed rooms are doing for Home is making it feel even more disjointed. By the time you have downloaded the respective rooms and them redownloaded the other areas needed to access those you just don't care anymore. Then when you get into these rooms and see how poorly built they are, you just want to rip the eyes out of the guy trying to act like he is performing oral sex on you for all his friends to watch.
Damn, I missed this. Poker now integrated into Home? That is freaking awesome!
