Re: Is BigFest Sony’s New PlayStation Home?

Jan 30, 2013

This sounds like a Game content Hub and 'Facebook for Gamers' more than Home Redux.

Interesting Information, but I don't see the need to completely rebuild another Social Network when there already is one, unless it's a project due in a long period of time, and Sony is planning to make vast changes.

I just hope that Sony themselves keep up with this if it is to be released, and don't just give up on it in due time.


I think what some are assuming is that BigFest will be part of the PS4 and Home will stay and die with the PS3.

 

Back in the Closed Beta there was talk about a FaceBook like page for Home (only) users.  You would be able to play games post pic's right from Home onto your "HomeBook" and chage your status/profile.  Just like Facebook but only for Home users.  It was said to be ready from the first day of the OB but that never happen.  This sounds a lot like the Home webpage.

One has to wonder if Microsoft has anything planned for it's upcoming console generation that might be similar to Home. Phil Harrison does work for them now.

I agree.  My very first thought was "sounds like a Facebook style", which I think is a fantastic idea.  Something like this with Home could make social gaming more...social.

Not really a fan of the whole "facebook style."  But yea, if it allows Home to be the social network that it originally wanted to be, then Im all for it.

I'm thinking it'll be a website that will allow everyone with a PSN account to make a profile, and to use said profile to search for likeminded gamers.  Being it's a Sony product, they should be able to use it to link directly to games, and it may offer more options based upon what games you're into.

I may be totally off base here, but I don't think this has anything to do with Home.

 

It sounds to me like this will be either a new lobby like system for, or even the next iteration of, the Little Big Planet Franchise.

The Juggernaut Valentines Pack and the Atom Party dance moves were instant buys for me.
