Home = WOW

13 replies 6 views Edited Dec 12, 2008

Let me first say that I wasn't a part of the initial Beta, so when I downloaded Home last night, I was trying it for the first time. It's amazing.

 

What boggles my mind though are the people who do nothing but complain. I understand that it's taken years to launch, and it's still not without it's problems, but  Home is a HUGE endeavour, so of course there will be bumps in the road. Sony is thinking long term, just like any major company should.

 

Home is evolutionary, and it has put me right back on board with Sony's "10 year plan". I know that it's  pretty bare-bones know, but the potential is unbelieveable. 

 

If you do have a PS3, consider yourself lucky, and enjoy the ride.

There is much more to do than buy virtual items.  But I agree, they won't get a dime out of me for clothes and furniture in a video game.

Considering that the Home service is FREE and the simple fact that you're getting your basic home space and wardrobe, Pool, Bowling, SaucerPop, Ice Breaker, Carriage Return and an arcade version of Echochrome all for FREE.  It seems more than a little wrong to complain about paying for premium extras.

Home is free, but the drinks cost extra.

Home auto-reply text for female avatars :-

"I'm sorry, I cannot respond now, I am playing this game. My age is immaterial. No, I am much better looking than my Avatar. No, I won't do that. Leave me alone you sleaze bag. Oh, sorry, not you, the other guy. Please can you just let me play this game. No, I don't like that dance. No, you can't sit there. Oh, come on, would you just get up you immature jerk! Alright, I'm nearly done, can you please let me be so I can concentrate on finishing this game for now?"

Home auto-reply text for male avatars :-

"Dood!"

If this many people keep playing Home they will probably give us more free stuff.  Actually not probably they will give us more free stuff.  I think they will make it worth our while.

Actually it has taken more than a year. I have been beta testing since may 07. There has been little progress.

 

I hope now things change.
