Does anyone here use Playstation Home?
I guess only the votes of the PS3 users really count, but ever since this thing launched the general feedback has been poor. When I first heard about it I was kind of jealous and wished there was something similar on the 360. But does anyone actually use Home? Has new stuff been added to it since launch? Is there any point to it's existence?
It's got so much better recently, but the heart of it is pretty much the same. I think the initial impressions really hurt it, but I don't know another way they could have rolled it out.
Regardless, everytime I go on it's pretty busy, so it seems like some people use it. If it's serving its purpose then that's fine. I've always believed in a console just having as many options as possible for free -- 'cos even if you never use them (I've never used Folding@Home for example, and won't use the 3D stuff) at least they are there in case you change your mind.
I have it installed and used it last night when some of my friends invited to be play Bowling. Im not sure why they were on it because they dont really like it though. Ive only been on twice before though, once when some sort of tank shooter came out and when I first got a PS3 to try it.
I've used it once in a while but Rob tends to check it out at least once a week and with his ability to genuinely grind through games to find the cool stuff he nearly always comes out with some good thing about it. The fact that it takes someone like him to find it makes it a bit less appealing to the common folk like myself. Anywho, you can try it out next time you hijack my PS3 Sweep.... aren't you coming to play heavy rain soon?
" It's pointless. Anyone who does go on it just tries to go on there and hit on woman avatars who are actually men trolling them for the lulz. "Yea pretty much. When it first came out I made a hot girl and people would hit on me and invite me back to their place where I would change my avatar into a hideous deformed person and watch them disconnect. That was fun for about 2 days. I haven't been back.
The Playstation Home is not that bad in my personal opinion. Though I do have to admit, I do not like to buy stuff for customizing my personal space. I would rather spend it on buying DLC! That is unless, they got some decent attire that would make me look cool but that is definitlely a one time deal for me. Though I could get free stuff if I either win their contest, or should I play a certain game and receive an unlocked reward!
As for the social gatherings involved there. I do not mingle with them all that much. Though I do play chess withothers if I am feeling a bit bored with playing a game on a disc or something.
Dude, last time I went on there, that place is FUCKED UP. Seriously, there were gay dudes having a cybersex chat right in the middle of the area I was in, I was like "Fuck dude, this place is creepy" and then I was immediately asked where I'm from. That place is a horrible shithole.
I use it occasionally for a game of chess, since there will almost always be an opponent for me. I haven't really used anything else on it. I like how ugly you can make your character though. Mine's a fat old freckly man with a receding chin, big nose, and a pink afro in sweatpants and a pink wife beater.
