Nice, PlayStation Home won’t load.

I always wondered what kind of person uses Home? What’s the point in buying virtual dress up items and running around in what amounts to a huge advertisement? It’s looks socially creepy and awkward. Especially some of the dress up items.

I loaded it up a few times and my impressions were… what is this… I don’t even…

Can someone enlighten me? Perhaps I am too shallow minded to understant all the awesome.

When can we edit our posts for stupid typos? And why is my completely inoffensive post above awaiting moderation?
