Hey guys, I was just thinking about some really cool stuff about how Home, or something like it, could be implemented into the PS4 when it comes out.
Imagine this, you turn on your PS4, and the console's logo pops on the screen for a few seconds. After that, instead of fading to an XMB or some other menu, you're dropped into Home. Your avatar is in a virtual beachfront house. if you press the PS button, your Avatar takes out a PDA-like device, and from here you can choose to launch a game, customize your character, play a movie. It would be like the XMB, except built into this virtual world.
Another cool idea would be having some sort of computer in this house, that you could sit down in front of, and this would launch the web browser.
Since Home would be built into the system from Day 1, Sony could mandate that trophies you earn in games would be required to have little statues you win from them, that you could display in your beach house's Trophy room, or elsewhere.
Also, if the PS Vita goes heavy on the download stuff, we could possibly see an in-Home version of the Vita, and you could launch Vita games on it, provided you have them saved to your PS4's HDD.
What do you guys think? cool ideas? or totally crazy?
I personally think it's a step forward for getting in to Virtual Reality.
