I know what you mean monoliet I hope Sony remove it on ps4 I normally check back once a year but can never find anything good I never understood what people like about home.

thunderking1981 29 January, 2013 @ 18:36

wow what a very good update i like home a lot keep up the good work

ResidentSteve: Why would they remove it if people enjoy it? Just be cause you don’t like it? Nobody’s forcing it upon you. Don’t be the gardener’s dog.

Monoliet: Please, use spell checker – Chrome and Firefox have those built in ;)

monoliet & residentSteve is right ps home is boring sony only made it so they can take your money to make more virtual stuff that you dont actually own ps home WONT BE ON PLAYSTATION4 they need to make better games insted of wasting money on making home trash waste of money if i was incharge of sony i would make a rule so that if people want a refund from ps home when its boring id let them get a refund

oh and monoliet ignore anyone who tells you how to spell you can spell it how you want just ignore idiots

( and i dont care if sony removes this

Haven’t really spent much time in Home myself, I only have time for all my PS3 games. :)

But I think if Sony is serious about including it on PS4, they need to integrate it better in the XMB. Like for instance, if other gamers can see your Home avatar when they visit your profile, or that you will be able to use the avatar in other games.

Yes that sounds a bit like Mii/360 avatar, but at least the Home avatars don’t look so annoying that they make me want to punch a hole in my TV. :D


No mention of 1.75? Also, when will we be having another VidZone event in Home or a permanent VidZone space?

Playstation home is class!

I tend to judge things, people on my experiences with them. If there is more that I like about them or it than dislike then I’m happy with them/it. For me Home has a lot more going for it than against it, but that is just my personal opinion. Those whom are not happy and say so are entitled to their opinion and are entitled to state in commentary. That’s what it is for n’est ce pas? All I can suggest to them is give Home/us another chance. You never know, you might surprise yourself and end up liking Home. Just think also, if you were there you could helpmake Home a better place too :)

Home has loads of content now, mostly to buy coming in and the interface is vastly improved, ie loading. However, what needs to be looked at now is the actual social side of things in my view, make it easier for us to actually connect with with people. Give us more tools for the club system, maybe a dedicated website interface within home that can also be used externally perhaps and specific regional spaces for instance.

Tired of garbage from the orient. How about some American soil baby !!!

How stupid that people think Home won’t be on PS4. Users have spent hundreds in there, you think Sony are gonna say “hard luck guys”? Of course it’ll be on there.

Why is it still in beta?
