I agree that once Home shuts down, SONY will be useless. I only stayed with SONY this long because of Square and now that Square has destroyed themselves Home is the only thing left.
Plenty of my PS Home Friends stopped using PS Home, removed me from their friend's list, or I have eventually removed from my friend's list due to PS Home drama. So the idea of me having 0 friends once I get a PS4 doesn't bother me as much as it use to.
In concept I already have plausible plans for a PS Home substitute. And so far they are
- DCUO - I haven't joined DCUO yet & may never will at this rate. In concept though I'll be joining once Lobo or just Lobo's Space Motorcycle become available.
- ESO - If they ever fix the problems once it releases for the PS4. But even then I might settle for it. This all depends on the Khajiit, Argonian, or Nord I ultimately decide to make.
- EverQuest Next - Assuming it comes to the PS4 & not just the PC. But that also relies on that they won't remove The Kerra from the playable races.
Saints Row Online- Okay.... It doesn't exist.... Yet.... But Volition loves to copy GTA.... They also love their sex jokes.... So if this does happen my character will be a Female. Because there is no way I'm watching a Male on a "fitness pole".
But I won't really be making the switch untill I get a 4K TV, Steam Machine forces me to get a 1080P TV, or PSN is removed from PS3.
Home wasn't a big part of my PS3 experience, It would of been if Sony followed through with what they promised. I'll just keep play my games. I only have like two people on my friend list that I meet through Home so I can just communicate with them through messages or if we play the same games I'll be able to talk to them there.
