Uh, there are dozens of free games inside of home.

As far as being "offered through home", it's probably the first game offered through home that I am aware of.

Here I thought it was going to be something awesome like a profile page for each gamer.

I never really got into this whole HOME thing. I did enjoy playing pool but besides that, I found it pretty boring and time consuming. It's been a loonngg time since I visited HOME so I'll try to give it another shot. Regardless if I personally like it or not but Home's community is growing. 10 million users is a lot and even if half of them are active, you got yourself a pretty damn strong virtual community. Good luck Sony! :)

Sodium One is pretty good, well the Salt Shooter that is open for free, dunno if I'd pay for it ever though. Imo, they should completely cover Home with ads (although some of it already is). That way they can keep most of it free.

Home is now an application worth using. But the whole downloading and loading process of Home scares me away every time.. one big open, streaming world would of been one of the best things that could of happened to Home.

I agree with that BUT it'd cost too much for the servers etc.

I am enjoying sodium a lot it's addictive as hell... you just want to upgrade everything!
