Just found another PS3 user, in-world ..who was also ,ironically.. a Home-user as well. We had a light chat in Western Thanalan about how PS Home "died" in 2011.
Very interesting world , indeed.
*still sees PSHome Icon on XMB*
Why are you posting in this thread, al?
When they pulled Life With Playstation...at least they removed the LWP Icon on the XMB, indicating that it was indeed...indisputably dead.
Home isnt dead....in ANY way. People who say this, are just brain dead. LOL
When I said died in regards to how PS Home "died" in 2011; I used quotation marks to indicate that it was a figure of speech and not literal. IMO, PS Home died when it shifted its focus away from PS3 Games and Gaming culture/community and redirected its focus on Pay-To-Win games and strange "virtual life" aspects (Getting married, virtual bars/nightclubs, modeling etc.).
I thought everybody here would be keen enough to pick up on that subtle inflection. But alas,.. I stand corrected.
So far, I've been enjoying what the beta has to offer.
I didn't get into FFXI, so this is a pretty interesting territory for me. Though, I'm no strangers to mmos. I'm fond of others, such as the Guild Wars series.
I've yet to experience any lag, but there was a bug where my chat started randomly typing Japanese, and I couldn't change it.
Though, it seems to be fixed now.
I'm currently level 7, and I believe this is just a weekend beta.
So with grinding, I might be able to reach level 15 or 20 by the end of Sunday.
I also find it strange they don't allow teleporting to friends, if you have them added.
Just the weekend!? Are you sure??
I heard it from PinkJulia, but I can't be a 100% sure.
Though, this is a beta, and they tend to do them in phases.
So I'd say if we're in, that means we're the first phase for the PS3.
But I'm not worried about a specific timeframe, I'm just enjoying the game.
According to this...phase 3 is supposed to run 1-3 weeks. (Subject to change tho) Unless I misunderstand? I've never known ANY Beta to only run for 3 days. Wish someone could give us an exact end date for phase 3 tho. Before I get too addicted to it. LOL
