How long until MS anounces thier own "HOME" program?

5 replies 1 views Edited May 31, 2007
Wanted to do a poll but I don't know how on this forum?????  Anywho, Im sure Sony tried to keep Home under the radar for as long as they could and I'm sure that they will beat MS to market with such a program.  Im also sure that if the PS3 is successfully, Home will be as successful.  I also believe at some point MS will have to do their own version of it.  So I wonder how long before we hear something from MS copying Sonys Home.  My guess is we will hear something by the end of the year, and they will start it in 2008.   Once there are 5 or 6 really good online games  plus Home going all for free online, people with 360 will start to revolt from having to pay to play online.
 
PS.....  I know that Home isn't really an original idea by sony.

MS is currently looking through all of it's back dated patents to halt Home and even make money from it. They are already going after Linux, and that is free....

They'll probably buy Linden Lab and redevelop Second Life to work on the 360. THAT'S how business works my friend.

If you were smart enough to read this sentence forward, put it in your sig.

If it proves successfull, I'll suspect all of the major companies will atempt it in the future or on the next set of next gen hardware.

I don't think MS will move over to this online gaming. Sony is taking a huge risk by creating Home, MS is already rolling in the money from the 360, It would be all together to move over to something totally different when they are already doing so well. They possibly could lose tons of money by moving over.
