Another thing I’m not sure on. Home was designed to be a money sponge for either very young people who later get in trouble and/or regret it, or for the really lonely person. (There is a third type however that unfortunately happens regardless of social media type.) You get media portals like this everywhere now (bin weevels etc) but I never thought Sony would make a place for it. These portals seem to take advantage of vulnerable groups of people and can often leave them in debt.

Sure all the purchases are optional so I need not complain, and it must cost a lot to run. However from my experience it takes an age to load areas, people sometimes stay as white mannequins and typing your conversation into a virtual keyboard is exhausting. You can use mic chat but the hodgepodge of voices and different languages makes that a mess as well.

Home looks amazing, it’s just a bit useless.

Looking forward to the new My Bedroom content. :)

Normally don’t really care about PS Home, but that Rainbow Killer outfit looks pretty neat.

Now I just wonder, what the price for it will be.

shadowflex makes a point, Home is a bit useless, sure it can be a great place to virtually meet your friends but then again, Skype is faster and has less rabble from surrounding players

it would be good if sony could either, add function to the game and give some sort of objective (perhaps an alternative reality home with zombie survival aspect to it?)… or better yet release an API for people to develop the game further as mods that can be installed onto the game (for free seeing as it is a huge money sponge already).

I bought the harry potter outfit and owl companion & now I do not have it anymore, What the (CENSORED)?
