...Home provides so many free mini-games. I'm really starting to get excited about Home again. Just wish the voice-chat feature wasn't so glitchy.

can't wait to get to my analog home and check this out.

Did they ever add voice chat back in? Besides checking out EA poker tables, I havent been there since they took away voice chat.

kapedkrusader3477d ago

...either connecting with someone on your friends-list that is in Home with a phonecall or when you are inside an apartment, there is full voice-chat.

I downloaded Namco Museum demo from the HK PSN so that I'd be able to access these games in HOME. The demo only have two levels of Dig Dug, Galaga, and Pacman :(

So awesome that hopefully more expansive versions of these games will be available in an arcade in HOME now. My wife thinks she can beat me in Pac-man now is the time to prove her wrong :)

Now all I'd really want in home is an option for split screen of multiple log ins to HOME like they've added to Resistance 2. Also I wish they'd add voice chat back to some public locations like the bowling alley and zones where you can play games.

I actually like home. The EA space is pretty cool especially playing poker. There is a ton of stuff to do in it now and the majority of it is completely free.

I find myself spending more time in Home lately. I've met a lot of great people on my friends list in it.

i'm also quite happy with this update ..
Buzz , new Ea content .. new things to do ...

and the servers are still packed with people ...

I like how they made their own Space dedicated to their company.

But they should include game-relevant stuff in there too. For example, Fight Night Round 4 was recently released. They should have made a small mini-game for it in the EA Space.

I don't like how there's a Resistance Space, does that mean Insomniac will have to make another space for Ratchet and Clank?

Developers should only need ONE space. From then on, they only have to update that space by including more mini-games, more rooms, etc.

@whoever disagreed:

What's wrong with wanting ONE developer space, and then within that space exists multiple rooms for their games, etc?

Chubear3477d ago

holy camoly that Buzz space is the $*%#! Got to be one of, if not THE, best HOME gaming space to date. All this and HOME isn't even a year old in open beta... what's HOME going to be like next year... 2,3,4 years from now.. what about HOME for the PS4? \O/

rockleex3477d ago (Edited 3477d ago )

I'm a dumbass for not reading the article about the Fight Night Space. -_-"

Anyways, more developers should follow EA's example in Home. Just ONE space, but multiple rooms, mini-games, etc.

Btw, when will the XMB version of Home be released? It will be LEGENDARY! O_O

jaysquared3477d ago

So has home become the next myspace/facebook yet? I remember many Sony fanboys proclaiming how big Home was going to be... Before it launch many SOny fans were proclaiming it was going to be the next big thing, gonna make people buy the PS3, will make Xbox 360 stop selling... Hmm seems like none of those have became true! silly fanboys!

EXCLUSIVEGAMER3477d ago

im going to need a tour now, i havent been home for a while

raztad3477d ago

@jay

Sorry dude you are the one behaving like a silly fanboy. While you are spouting nonsense about Home (getting better and more populated by the day) I'm sure MS is thinking how to replicate Home highly commercial success.

Btw, the console getting facebook is x360, I hope it gives you a clue about what is the real trend on social gaming.

thereapersson3477d ago

Wow, talk about pot calling the kettle black as night! Why are you even in this article? You scream your head off about fanboys, and yet here you are, trolling as if nothing is apparent about your behavior.
