I'm the farthest thing from a console fanboy so this isn't a bash. But after attempting to get into Home on the PS3...I just don't see the point of it. Sad thing is, I see a LOT of potential there, it just falls terribly short. The constant, beating you over the head with advertisements, lack of replay value, and paying real money for virtual items just really bugs the hell out me. The only saving grace is that it is in Beta, so it could get better. What are some of your opinions on Home?

its ok, i like home in my hong kong account. you can download the namco demo they got on the hong kong playstation store. then play the demo and you can unlock alot cool stuff from the demo, like a pac man t-shirt and a dig dug hat. plus ya get a arcade tower of pac man,dig dug,galaga and one more but i forgot which one it was, then you can put them in your owned spaces. but ya they need to do more. and i hope they start givin more stuff for free like they do in the hong kong account. i like playin pool in the bowling ally but hate all the loadin needed evertime they change somthin.

I downloaded home, its a waste of memory, paying Real money for clothes?, and there's really nothing to do there unless your a teenager and hook up with friends to chat, but I really see no point in using Home. I downloaded it, played it and deleted it.

It has a lot of potential that is completely untapped. That said, in its current state, its a great cure for insomnia!

I feel sorry for anyone that chooses to interact with friends or attempts to make friends in home. The idea that anyone would want to hang out in your apartment that you spent real money on to decorate is as far fetched as the idea that anyone reads what you put on myspace beside yourself. Why would anyone need to look at a dancing avatar while voice chatting? It does seem like an exciting new frontier for sexual predators though!

Oh come on now, whats not cool about seeing 30 dudes doing the "cabbage patch" dance together in a bowling alley?!?
Total waste of space. Adver-gaming at its worst. Considering that Xbox is killing us on exclusive DLC, you'd think Sony would be spending time and money on actual, oh i dunno, VIDEO GAME content?!?
How about paying Bethesda for the new Fallout 3 DLC that xbox and PC are getting? Nahhhh, they'd rather try to sell me a "clubhouse" in Home where me and my friends can all do the "cabbage patch" together.

Sony's had their heads up their asses since the PS3 came out. It's still the most expensive system in the middle of an economic crisis with no sign of it dropping, they pulled the BS move of stopping making it backward compatible so they can sell more PS2s, and the game selection is sparse at best. Then there's the PSP. Somehow it's selling more than it ever has, despite the severe drought of games this past year. I love it, it does EVERYTHING, but the only reason it does is because of the custom firmware and homebrew applications that have nothing to do with Sony.

Also, Blu Ray has announced price drops on a movies in the upcoming months which will allow more people to get those movies they want.
I still don't get the love of the Xbox as it utilizes an already obsolete video player and has a strong history of locking up. Oh, but don't worry, Microsoft knows this and will happily replace the door stop with a new one.
I am still waiting for Microsoft to make a mandatory download of Vista onto the Xbox to be able to run any software, utterly killing xbox like most of the PCs out there.

My reasoning for not liking Sony and Home may be circular but they work for me.
SOE sucks major ass as an MMORPG developer. They did and still do have the worst customer service and incompetent game developers I have ever seen in my life. Last year I read that SOE was moved under the same division that produces the PS3. This means the whole Sony gaming division now sucks ass.
The whole, paying for virtual items just wreaks of the same smelly (Smedley) ass policies implemented by SOE in its online games like EQII and SWG. God I wish that company would just go down in flames.
