Yeah, hell people get all happy and positive on other platforms when something free comes out and isn't even great, 'oh well at least it's free', and this thing is HUGE and its free, there's nothing to be whining about since you aren't even paying for it nor are you forced to use it... though im pretty damn sure everyone will.

By the way, the downloads are only a one time thing. Once you do it, that's it, it's on your HDD.. and the loads aren't that bad tbh with you, usually they're around 10 seconds loading from one space to another space, which I rarely do unless a group of friends want to go bowl or go to someones space or something, other then that there isn't a big reason to be hopping from space to space constantly.

PS- What the videos on youtube always fail to show, since they really can't, is the social aspect of Home, obviously they aren't going to sit there and talk to their pals about the news and games, they're just touring the place. But for me and many others the main part of Home is the social community side of it, and even that is just one side of the coin.

I thought Home was alright in theory, but I could never grasp any good application for it. I highly doubt that Sony would make a line of top-tier titles for your Home people to play in, which is what Nintendo did. It's the same thing that I don't get with the Avatar system. Are there games that support it?

i got into the beta tonight...

its incredibly social thats a huge plus, but more psn users NEED to buy mics, go and find a free cell phone blu-tooth headset or buy Socom NOW that game is awesome once you download the patch, very very fun


home looks beter than i expected, just none of the stores are open and the celebration thing planned tonight with all the new features never happened. i can't find any game lounges either. 

i will post pics and updates of anything i find i guess.

it doesn't im in the beta now. its listed under the playstation network icon on the xmb. 
you don't have to ever use it at all if you don't want to. its jsut a place to socialize and have fun with people. its like a 3D myspace just like they said.

The thing that I find most problematic is the fact that you can't play bowling/pool/chess/mini-games whenever you want, you have to wait for the guy who is using the machine to be done with it. I mean wtf! that takes quite a long while right now when we are in "invite only" beta, when it becomes an open beta you will NEVER find anything unused and all teh rooms will have 5-6 or maybe 10 times the normal amount of people right now. I wonder hwo does Sony plan to  address this when it becomes an issue, because it WILL. Other than that I like the whole thing, the way videos play on screens, and the general feel of it, but it needs more work, I feel like its designed for maybe 3000 people simultaneously, and its supposed to accomodate ALL of the ps3 users with an internet connection in North America, a low brow estimate would be 100000 users online in Home in North America at any given time.

I... absolutely agree. Also... sometimes I just want to play pool... on my own. I just want to knock some balls into pockets. I don't want some asshole coming along fuckin' with my fun.

I figure the best thing they could do... is if in the arcade... you just... enter the area... and you get a prompt going "HEY What game do you want to play?!" and then lets you choose something to play.

Another thing that would be... nifty... would be the ability to see your opponents pool cue moving... or if you could watch someone play the arcade game... instead of just watching their avatar staring at the start screen for hours on end.

I honestly hated the pool in the game...and I don't like the fact that anyone can just randomly join your game. What if I just want to bowl by myself instead of bowling with some obnoxious moron? ...I can't do that and I find that quite annoying. The character customization is extremely lacking too.

Now that I think of it, they most likely have some way of fixing these issues, I mean they employ pretty smart people, and these are pretty obvious problems. We'll probably see it when it goes live.

Completely forgot about it until yesterday and saw a Sony commercial pimping it.  Either way still want it more out of morbid curiosity.
