Doesnt he work for microsoft now?
Yup, he's been a Corporate Vice President with their Interactive Entertainment Team since March 2012.
It would have been different these days I am sure with him running the show. I would like to hope that Home would be coming to PS4 and keeping my fingers crossed. Maybe some day they'll shed so light on it.
Here's another interview with Peter Edward about the change in direction the home development team made in 2010.
Well I don't think Home has lost that edge by any means, but I do feel there is some lacking going on. Home has and always will have a lot of potential. There is so many things that can be done in a virtual world.
Even though I sometimes post negitive threads I still buy stuff in Home because I hope, just hope someday we'll see the things better, improvements, better stuff in the furture.
But we need to start seeing Sony themselves caring about there program along with the developers. Not saying they don't care, but I think they can do more.
That was interesting Brises_0000. It seems that Home development goes through starts and stops. That might be a normal corporate development cycle but it seems to have stifled development of the core Home application.
I agree, from what I've seen even people that have given up on Home in its current state have some hope that things will change in the future.
Home is still a unique community even with all its obvious flaws.
There is already a very active thread on yesterday's Xbox reveal located at http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/Off-Topic-D
Comments in this thread should be about Phil, and what if any role he had in building something like Home on the new Xbox.
We still don't know whether there will be anything like Home on the PS4, we'll have to wait until E3 to get more detail.
I had been wondering whether Phil would build something like Home on the new Xbox, but sheesh, that reveal yesterday was a spectacular failure in my view.
Can anyone say crash and burn? I read a few interviews with Phil after the reveal and he sounded like a deer caught in the headlights.
Microsoft's stock value actually dropped after the reveal and Sony's gained almost 9 points. Ouch!
Soooo, we didn't see anything like a Home interface during the reveal and we still don't know what is happening with the PS4 in that department.
Who knows, more detail may be revealed at E3 regarding Home on PS4 but so far it doesn't look like Phil has had any influence over MS in that department.
