I expect better from the Hone development team, Home will be open beta 4 years next month and as far as I can tell the only ones that have been doing a decent job are Lockwood, Granzella, HeavyWater, Loot, Konami, NDreams, and other developers like them. the main Home development team, I have to say I am not impressed with them.
I hear you, I realized about 3 years ago, ever since the TOP GUN contest they ran.
Oh its not just that , the main Home development tean has disappointed the community on many occations, for instance before open beta they talked about letting users play music & videos from their XMB's on Home, that never happened, another was a hall of fame space that displays trophies that users earned from games.. again, nothing. Holliday event it took them 3 - 4 years to come up with a thanksgiving event that didn't involve chasing stupid turkeys. oh I don't get me started on the bug problems & freezers.
Yea it wasn't all that bad as far as being a Holiday Event, but really 2 - 3 years of the same event with the same turkey outfit reward over & over. the least they could have done was add different rewards.
I'm still fighting for more rewards for Hudson. I know they made money off of it and yet, they shafted us and wrote off the space. One of their stores in Hudson, doesn't even work anymore lol. Racing dolphys is still very popular. Tiss of them, I say. People will still buy the space today and they will always have new users. We only get two updates the first two weeks it came out back in 2010 and that was it. HELLO Mcfly!!
Home is Home. Just don't get your hopes up too high and don't display HOME, like it's your best friend and put it on a trophy case. It's not the greatest application in the world.
So this is just me but, i think sony should add handshakes and hugs and etc.... to Home. It'd be kinda nice to give hugs and high fives to random people.
They could just add a Kissing booth, for those who want to suck face.
This way, your given the choice. (Prize included)
Kiss the Turkey for Thanksgiving. Ha ha..
I'd like an interaction where when I get disconnected from Home my avatar becomes a flesh eating zombie and terrorizes all in that instance.
If someone misspells too many times it triggers an option where my avatar will grasp their avatar's neck and will violently shake their head back and forth (controlled by shaking the controller) while my avatar screams out, "Learn to spell!" This will continue until either I stop shaking the controller, or the targeted avatar is laying on the ground in a heap with the words "I am ded" floating above him.
If someone takes more than two minutes to type less than five characters, that person's avatar will magically pull a custard pie from the air and hit himself in the face with it, and is now silenced by the pie for 10 minutes.
If you "Back soon..." on me for more than ten minutes, I should be able to draw a moustache and/or apply makeup on you.
