Playstation Home

Its been a while in the pipeline, but it looks like Home is coming into open beta within the next 10 days..

PlayStation Home is a community-based service for the PlayStation Network which has been in development since early 2005. Home will be available as a piece of free software from Sony’s PlayStation store. Users must create their own avatar; then they are then free to explore Sony’s virtual lands complete with shops, apartments and cinemas. They can also meet and interact with other avatars from around the world, exchange ideas and play mini-games such as chess or 10-pin bowling.

Anyone excited? Bothered?

What a load of cocking shit. Still, it seems like people have finally seen the Emperor's New Clothes tale that is Second Life.

Don't think I'll be using it to pick up young boys, but some of the content could be promising, such as the game and movie trailer streams. Be interesting to see how developers use it to promote there games too.

Yes because in addition to my initial enthusiasm, I think it'll be just fantastic to have to log onto a console and sit down in a house that doesn't exist in order to then pay to watch a low quality version of a bluray movie.

I don't think anyone would stream a movie, but its not so bad for free trailers. Apples trailer site is certainly popular enough.

Let's be honest it's just Sony shitting their pants having pretended XBL doesn't exist for the last two years and coming to the table late with an idea someone who gets paid far too much to talk far too loudly has somehow managed to get funding for, despite it having fuck all value to PS3 users.

From what I read it isn't very seamless either, like having to download stuff every time you change rooms etc. I presume once you have all the content that might work a bit better though.

I doesn't really appeal to me at all though. I just wanna watch a movie or play a game - The PS3 is bad enough as it is for this wanting you to download huge patches every time you try something new!

True, and thats when the servers are working too.. it took me two days to get the patches for littlebigplanet, and nearly a week for GTAIV.

It's out. It's crap. An open environment for socialising it is not.

I hate the illusion of an open 3d environment. I want a genuine environment. I want to be able to walk to the end of the pier outside my apartment, turn around, and see hundreds/thousands of apartments belonging to everyone. If i go to a plaza, and there are lots of other people there, i expect to see them all in that environment, not just the select few that happen to have been dumped within the same particular plaza that i was.

I was hoping for so much more.

I have no idea why it took them so long to develop.
