I can imagine it becoming a Mall type area, with apartments. Imagine a really big mall with multiple stories of apartments above.

Guys, you're not just confined to rooms so get it out of your head
 
There are massive lobbies to interact in, as well as the massive, almost Star Wars-like Hall of Fame, and most of the lobbies have an outdoor look to them. As you get further into Home, you can upgrade to a huge house, and escape the boundaries of a primary, confined apartment

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?


as far as I understand it Sony will be providing the server platform and just like regular lobbies other companies lounges will autospawn to carry the load.

In reality we've only seen one small area of home called the main lobby. Phil himself has stated that Sony is working on bringing actual products within home, but of course at this point we don't really know.

Also if you think about it, anything is possible.

When Attack of the Show covered Home, they showed a video of you being able to walk around and chat with others in what seemed like a city. They also said that it's pretty much like Second Life.

otoh AOTS missed the point of Home entirely....
I suggest you read up on what Home is (check the sticky at the top) rather then use AOTS as your source.
 
There are games rooms and publisher lobbies and what you saw was a publishers lobby

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???


i read & heard that the game will get new features during the months!!!

Hopefully they'll have more than just the main lobby for socializing.
