PlayStation Home update: The Kikai Machine Empire event continues

PS Home will briefly be offline from 8.00am BST on Wednesday 5th June for routine maintenance. Here’s what to expect after the update…

Choose the décor from a large range of wallpapers, floor coverings and wall decorations. Hard rocking, or elegant sophistication? Set the mood with some music.

Looks decent good update. Also with E3 less than 1 week away will there be a E3 space this year? Also will we be able to watch the Sony E3 conference Live in Home again?

ps3 home content ps3 games wont transfer over to ps4 and dont say it will because it wont

& i just read that the ps4 you will have to pay to use online this better not be true IF PS4 ONLINE ISNT FREE il switch to xbox

@CoolRichy007UK I have a lot of RSS feeds going for the PS4 new. I have not read a single bit of news/rumors about Sony charging for PS4 network.

Where did you here about this? I would be very surprised if Sony do charge for PS4 network. I think they will keep the basic free you know online play, messaging friends ect that will be kept free I think. But they will most likely offer exclusives features with PS+.

Even if Sony do charge for online. Why on earth would you swap for Xbox One? Considering you got to pay to play online there. Always have to have kinect plugged in and have to connect online once every 24 hours. Plus DRM on there games.

MARK-146 4 June, 2013 @ 7:09 pm   4

CoolRichy007UK …..Just think what you just said, if you think xbox will be free, you have more chance plaiting fog! You have only got to look at the PS+ content we have received as part of our membership, on the xbox you get zero for your buck but if you want to jump ship thats your choice but rest assured, you will miss out!

@CoolRichy007UK
Do you have a link to where you where reading this? Don’t believe everything you read in the media. Most of them just feed you a pile of lies for attention. Here you see that little count down in the top right corner of the blog? The one with all the numbers and E3 Live Stream under it, well whenever all them numbers reach 0, you will get your news. But like MARK-146 says, you will miss out. Xbox isn’t even a proper gaming console. It’s about money grabbing not games. Beside, you will miss PS Home too much anyway to get an Xbox. You might say your sick of PS Home now but why are you on a PS Home post

I am Really looking forwards to visiting Home on PS4, it Has to happen, i mean sure, Home’s been very good anyway, but i believe it’ll come into it’s own next-gen, as i allways say the potentiol and possibilities for ‘future’ Home are just limitless, i really want to see Home integrated Fully with PS4, a sorta jumping/starting off point for us (well, our avatars/id) to both utalise pre game lobbies more, and, well i’m no designer or coder, but basically begin (if you choose) every PS4 activity From Home.. it’s going to be a massive part of everything, The Home icon should hopefully replace the singstar icons position.. i think i’m looking forward to Home new’s future even more than most of the announced games and other features. Just hoping the right people get to implement it all.

Just want to add to the DRM issue pointed out above, tbh, IF m$ Are going to enforce that, SCE aren’t going to be in much of a position to Not do same, i mean can you imagine EA/other publishers being allowed to do it on one (main) console, then quietly accept they can’t on others ?.. no, am expecting a similar deal from the Publishers regards both.. especially when m$ add their point/outlook to it all, am hoping i am wrong, but really cannot see just how sony will prevent same rules being forced on them.

 
Hexahedronaut 4 June, 2013 @ 10:28 pm   8

Well tbh if they do have online drm on the ps4 I hope they’re ready for the onslaught of p***** off playstation fanboys specially after the way they where trolling people of twitter about it.
