    I just got my Home Open Beta today and was really excited. So I clicked on Home and downloaded and installed. I clicked on Home again, excepted the user agreement and was ready to begin my Home experience. But I pressed "X" to connect and it got as far as "signing in" when a window with this message popped up:

    Request timed out
    /HUBPS3_SVML/account/SP_Login_Submit.jsp

    Any ideas on the problem and how to fix it?

    "Timed out" usually implies that the search for a connection has failed. It may be an issue with your PSN connectivity.

    I have a problem with Home as well, it's boring. Booted it up, browsed around, and turned it off. What an overrated piece of crap.

    It's having a hard time with the servers. At first I couldn't even sign in. Then once I did, it said a server error occurred and then logged me off.

    I have to say I saw this coming a mile away though. Way to screw up the early servers again Sony.

    Never playing Home again. Not only is it boring, but you have to pay REAL money for stuff in it?! Never again.

    Yeah I got the same thing, this is still beta afterall. btw Home is not a game, so I don't know how one would 'play' home.

    Its people that over criticize everything that makes Sony (or any dev) not bring demos and betas out. Seriously its free and optional.

    You are still playing it, Home isn't moving and thinking for you. So I guess under your determination of "play" then I guess sitting in a town, playing an RPG, and talking to townsfolk is not "playing" the game. No, guess you have to be fighting.

    Yup. What was the big deal about Home before? It seems like a neat concept, but the whole transition falls flat. To whoever says "it's just a beta," big deal. A beta is still a large part of the final product.

    Well then I should go ahead and play with my NXE and consider it a game I have to pay yearly for.

    You use the programs, not play.



    btw, finally got through in Home and its alright. A nice free expansion on the XMB is the way I look at it, and really its nothing more than that.

    Yup. That's what kills it. I want to play with all this cool stuff, try out dozens of shirts and new furniture. But it's just so prohibitively expensive.
