I was cleaning up my PS3 and came across some very old Home pics of long ago before we had a camera.
The first was the first public event I can remember. The Horror Bowl from April 09 if I'm correct. Most of these people have left home, some of you are still here. I see a few names that still use the forums.
Another would be the Hamsters VS. Humans
July 4th, 2009 - Bonus if you know where this is.
This is when the Buzz space first came out and we all helped each other to get the Buzz 100 shirt. This was a successful group pic.
Sorry if the quality stinks but again this was before the home camera.
Hamsters Versus Humans is always a personal favorite. It kept us very busy jumping from instance to instance, or returning to our default personal space (if the instance we wanted to go to was filled).
I also love the launch parties with game Producers and Developers. I do hope we have more of those in the near future.
Oh the censorships, the BuggieTechnica's, & the old chat boxes. I couldn't even type my own name without it being censored. ***usF.
I admit Home has a lot of cool stuff on it now. But I wish sometimes I could have been there and seen it back a few years ago. I only started on Home this year.
Being on Home for a few years, you start to appreciate it more.
Also, Home has came a long way since it's get go.
Most people these days, the newer Home users don't really see Home as some of us older Home users do.
The Home of the older days didn't have a fraction of the content that it has now. You couldn't do much besides using your imagination most of the time. I still miss public voice chat (not what we have now). Still remember everyone wearing default clothing. Everyone was noobish with the exception of the closed beta testers.
Some of who, whom had some different clothes from surveys & events, some game related rewards (Namco Museum Essentials, Ice Breaker, Echochrome, etc). Though, the testers who got rewards from closed beta for participating in certain events & surveys from different regions, temporarily lost those rewards when Home transitioned from Closed to Open Beta. They got them back later on after an extended maintenance period was completed.
