    Default Home?

    Anyone else highly disappointed in home? It seams like a pointless program. If they eventually get some games connected to home and give me a purpose for being there it might redeem itself. As it stands here is a list of things you can do:

    - Bowl in a low quality bowling game
    - Play pool with horrible physics
    - Watch a loading bar in the theater
    - Fly a UFO over a pond
    - Pay for items to decorate your house and avatar
    - And best of all, you can dance.

    This penny arcade comic sums it up, http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/12/12/

    So what do you guys think of home?

    I've been laughing to myself for quite a while now about Home. Sony makes it sound like its the greatest thing ever, the killer app for the PS3. I look at it and I don't see much of anyone spending any great time dicking around with it. Delay after delay and its still going to be lame no matter what.

    It's a beta.. more like an alpha. Give it time.

    Grand Theft Auto, Everquest, Second Life, World Of Warcraft, etc. They all had their Alpha stages.

    That's true. Does anyone know when they are going to release the full version?

    Just got done playing it.

    Yep 30 minutes and I was done. It is also really important you have a keyboard otherwise it is nearly impossible to type.

    Characters where very generic, not going to buy fake clothes. Just the whole thing was very awkward, almost creepy.

    I was in the closed beta for months and I was really hoping that they would add a lot of improvements when the beta opened to all users. Boy was I let down, all they did was change the central plaza which I think was the one they were using over in Japan and add price tags to a bunch of pointless stuff. Fortunately those who were in the closed beta got everything you can buy for free which is good because I wouldn't have spent a cent on their current offerings.

    Home seems to me, to be a very basic idea with a world of possibilities ahead of it. It is kind of fun to play around with (for not very long) right now, but i suspect there will be an entirely different and much more evolved Home in the near future. It is nice to see that Sony is offering a new and innovative idea such as Home, free of charge.

    I recently checked it out and it isn't terrible. You've got to remember, it's not a game. It's a social network for video gamers. It's cool for what it is. I'm sure it will continue to get updates and add-ons to improve it. Also, IT'S FREE! If you don't like it, don't sweat it. You didn't pay anything for it. For a free social networking program, it's about what I expected. There's some good potential there too.
