Will There Be A City In Home???

23 replies 29 views Edited Mar 21, 2007
Iv seen all the videos from gdc about home....but i was wondering if you think there will be a big city for everyone to walk around in, like say there's a store e.g circuit city,,walk in to there and you could pre-order stuff from there and it would come to your door, etc
Because from the videos i have seen theres a games room, big lobby, apartment, trophy room, thats it  ( i think)
anyways if any body knows if there is gonna be a city please tell me???

anything is possible  in the future but at present Home appears to not have those features. We will have to wait until the final release of Home this Fall to see if this is even possible.
 
If the majority of residents/players/users, etc  in Home, want a city then I'm sure Sony will make it happen.

The video plays as part of the introduction. Imagine Mad Max movie with Mel Gibson and that pretty much sums it up.

Sony should increase the number of people in a server at once because therer are at least 5 rooms (lobbies) to go in and they are all located in 1 server....i'd get pretty lonesome when i am the only person in that room ya know

Hard to say if Sony uses a server per lobby 
I believe each lounges or lobbies are set to 64 concurrent users for a good reason - To reduce lag.
 
Basically, from what I read and heard from interviews with Phil Harrison, SCE will have it done in a smart and user friendly manner so you won't be in a lobby by yourself if the other lobbies are maxed at 64. Assuming only 64 people plus 1 will be in Home. Highly unlikely these numbers will be so low when Home is released.
 
I'm curious how developer and publishers will handle this situation for their themed lounges. If 64 AVs per lounge do they expand their lounges to 2 -3 servers or longes so everyone gets an opportunity to get in?
