HOME is still somewhat appealing to me, but all these delays are runing my interest in the social game.

I'd rather not have it at all...I don't know how anyone could find Home to be enjoyable in any way.

It's enjoyable in a lot of the same ways chatting in a forum on a website is. It's a 3D social networking application. That's it. People are talking about it like it's supposed to be Sim City or WoW. It's a way to meet other PS3 owners and maybe have some fun doing other things than just talking. It was literally only made for people to hang out. If you like hanging out with people (strangers or not) then you'll enjoy it. I'm personally a social kind of guy so I loved the 15 minutes I spent in home yesterday, standing in a circle with about 20 other people discussing Sonic games.

All the other stuff (lofts, character customization, arcade games, movie theatre) is just there to assist in the networking by making the environment more than a chat room. And all that stuff works so it really doesn't need to be recalled at all.

The problem is...I don't find this as a decent 3D social networking application. From what I've experienced I find nothing in Home that would ever make me want to use it.

I was amped 2 years ago, but Sony forgot to release any MMOs on the PS3, I got bored of EQOA and without a MMO deal on the console I see home as pointless.  I don't want to hear a bunch of kiddies bragging about their tea bag skills

Well I'm happy that you guys are having fun and I hope most people find some way to make Home enjoyable...I just don't personally see the appeal.

I've lost most excitement for home. I think its because at one pont I actually believed some of the false release dates people like to put up. Its just been so long since it was announced there seems no need to follow the hype until its released or I become a beta tester.

What good is it if it is free and I don't actually have it in my possession, or ever will. It's teasing us.

So am I one of the few ones that found Home to be above expectations?

I would probably guess yes, but I have no facts to support that.

I found that without a keyboard or standard headsets with every PS3 home is a little sparse.  People walking around aimlessly, no one knowing what to do or where to go, 25% of people communicating... It all just seems empty.

I know it's the beta, but I now am not looking forward to home.  I can't imagine with more people there will be more folks communicating.  And waiting to play the games in home?  Just silly.

I don't think I'll come back to it.

Comes out tomorrow for everyone. 

been using it here and there for the past few weeks since i got into the beta, its interesting but its lacking lots of features right now, hopefully once this public beta goes out, it will start to grow much faster and have a lot more to offer.

@twoonefive: Just seems like a waste of money for Sony while developing it. This money could have been used for more games. Seems like a very expensive feature that hasn't been appreciate very much on the PS3. Used it once and wasn't very impressed seems like a waste of time that I could be better using while playing actual games.

Honestly, I thought Home was pretty bad; it was certainly no Lone Survivor...

looking back, yeah, what an utter disappointment. its just one of those things that one paper the idea sounded very cool, but in practice came off pretty lame- not too mention how poorly constructed the whole damn thing was (insane load times, pointlessness etc.) Home seems entirely unnecessary now with all of this "share" integration, and the ability to watch what others are playing and jump in to help them out etc.. pretty awesome stuff on the PS4 that does sound both great on paper and will obviously be successful features.
