Jersquall: Any new news on Home on PS4 yet?
Tempest_Fire: Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014.
I've personally been through so many different stages on home. I started home way back on closed beta and fell in love with it right away. We didn't have game content or anything, all we had were 4 spaces and people. People to me is what can really make the BIG difference on home.
I originally found a group of 5 or 6 people and we all became the best of friends. If we hung out with someone, it was usually from someone within our tight knit group. Over the years though 1 by 1 they stopped coming on home until I was the only one left. I tried to make new friends that met my expectations, but I never seemed to find anyone quite right for me. So between a few bad experiences and lots of effort put into finding new friends and it never working out, I gave up. It was a bit lonely at first, but I became a reward hunter. I found a lot of satisfaction in getting every reward that was available and soon it became the norm.
I'd say I did the reward hunting thing by myself for about almost 2 years, but I was getting particularly lonely, so I decided to start reading/posting here in the forums. I mostly just read what everyone said as on here people are a bit easier to read than on home. I entered a lame contest or 2 and then LT held that street fighter vs tekken tournament. I hadn't planned on entering but I was a bit bored and I really enjoyed the game so I entered. It was so much fun. I got to meet so many of the different people that I had just read about on these forums and it was fun to put a name with an avatar.
Since that contest I've befriended many of you and I'm so happy to call you my friends. I knew 1 or 2 of you before this and I've just gotten to know you even better . My experience on home has changed a lot since before that contest. I'm excited to come on home again. I look forward to coming on everyday. One particular person I've grown quite close to and I'm proud to call her my best friend, on and off of psh. She really has changed how I view home as a whole, and I look forward to seeing and spending time with her everyday. ( you know who you are )
At a time where I really just needed good friends, I found all of you, so tysm for changing my home experience and my life.
Kitty your post is very moving to me on a deeply personal level. For reasons I won't share. But I just hope everyone comes to realize that your friends are friends no matter if they are behind an avatar or standing in front of you in the flesh. Real humans are those avis you see, and the bring soul to the PlayStation universe period.
I agree, while this is on a game system, I know there's a real person sitting behind a tv somewhere and try and treat them how I would as if they were sitting right here with me .
