I'm going to go a little off topic. Rockstar Games releasing GTA V to next generation consoles. And we are going to be able to transfer our character to any next generation consoles. Including all our stuff in inventory (clothes, cars, every progress). My point is, if Rockstar can do it, so can Home. Home would run a lot better on the PS4. I even have suggestions if it ever comes. Like Music Unlimited. Those who have can play music on Home and ppl being able to view what you're listening to and join along and dance. I think that's possible. Idk. Imagine how great Home can be on the PS4. It's possible all regions become one and Home going to the PS4. The things that's going on makes it seem like it's game over, but I get this feeling a good surprise is coming
The problem with this is Rockstar has full control of it's content. Home is worked by multiple devs (even those that doesn't exist anymore), so if any problems comes up, without the help of the devs, it can't be solved.
Another problem is the regional differences and legal stuff. You can make an example with EU's Home with it's conflicts of releasing items (couldn't get photo frames, no Quest to Greatness 2, etc). Adding more regions just makes it worst. It's possible to make it all region by handing out a long list of restrictions from the beginning to what can be released, but that probably ruins what we call Home. Also with more checking clearance needed, if one region objects to it, it needs to be reworked and go through the process all over again. Until the world becomes ruled by 1 or comes up with a universal standard this won't be avoidable.
And to put another example, GTA online for JP is isolated from the rest due to it's harder censorship of the game. If the other regions have set their standard to the JP version, that might have solved it, but if you delete sex, blood, violence from GTA, would you still enjoy it compared to the full version?
The majority of PSN users own a PS4 me included so no surprises other regions will follow suit. Good Riddance to it
Actually the majority of PSN users are still on PS3 and that balance won't change for several more years. Moreover, the PS4 has been selling very poorly in Japan (the region that's shutting down Home), so please get your facts straight when you attempt to troll here.
Annouce for SG by SCEa -EN
"march 15" mean march/2015,maybe.
SG- none write in announce
JP- intend to do,announce
It is unfortunate to hear the JP Home region is coming to a close in March 2015. Although we're plagued with errors and exploits here in NA (and constant sales can be worrisome), I'm adamant that PS Home will continue to strive for SCEA for a while longer -- but not forever. I've been around since Nov. 2008 and feel I have already seen Home's best moments.
There's a fog surrounding Home making our future unclear. With each step, we're fearing the end.
SCEE/SCEA, must shed some light on where Home is heading in the future. Not as a reply to forum post, but an official announcement to all Home fans. Regardless if Home is dying on the business side, Home is dying on the community side.
joanna dark. in her first message. could not have more elegantly made my point about vets of home being bored. and how its just become a virtual selling machine.
home was not like this in the beginning. people will buy stuff. we dont need all the advertisements.
a new home sony will bring the vets back. its just very old to us. and yet we still go there on occasion. we love our OUR home. yes ours lol. its the sony gamers HOME! its our community and we would like a new one.
i know management reads these. if your a vet like me. who wants a new home. TELL THEM. even if there is a new one being built. they will be glad to hear there work is important to us.
hi.. why do you post here? your not a home fan. not being critical or rude. just a legitimate question. this is for home users.
home is old.. it has a very low capabilities to change without completely being rewritten im told. i believe it to be true. to make clear idk if its true or not. but sounded logical to me.
sony home is wanted. we need a new home. we desire to keep our community. its just archaic and is poorly run on its original principles. ITS A COMMUNITY.. not a game. not a place to over charge folk in the casino. not a place to sell advertisements to. we can find the mall lol.
try running your new releases from your movies you make sony. i mean why not. you have theaters. charge folk to enter certain theaters to see new releases. advertise that. not virtual clothes. advertising virtual clothes is tacky and sends negative vibes.
im being honest. im very sorry if anyone gets upset. i apologise now in advance. but home is poorly run. its not the community's fault if trolls run home. if jailbroken ps3s hurt honest home users. its management
glasswalls messed home up. now its way offf course. sony will you please hire someone who loves home. who understands home. if so it will grow. it has potential to be bigger than any game. its a social platform. so 500 million users is possible. especially if you add home to yout tv's.
