It might take too long on home..

17 replies 48 views Edited Mar 10, 2007
... to do simple tasks. Like getting into a game. Say if you want your friends to play. Will you have to walk all the way to each of your friends houses just to ask if they want to play a game? That'll take a while to do so if true. Does anyone really know?

Well, you can do it that way. Biut I'm sure you could also use whatever sort of in-Home Chat system they have set up. Also, you can pull up the World Map on your Virtual PSP and move around quicker that way.

And if that's still too slow for you, then you can do it the old fashioned way through the XMB. :smileytongue:

The virtual PSP has navigation, so if you want to go to your friends room you just click and it will take you there. Maybe you might be able to run too?

voice chat is available to friends...
home can be selected as meeting spots...
game lobbies can be used
- all of which are instanteous (outside of load time) transitions

You don't have to walk anywhere, that is a choice. I honestly don't think you can walk to your house or your friends house or whatever. I think you will have to select, go to my Home or something from a pause menu or something like that. And if you can wakl to houses, it will only be yours, and everyone's Home will have the same location on their own PS3. I seriously doubt there will be just rows and rows of millions of houses for each user.

People need to understand the Home is a social network.  If you want to play a multiplayer game do it from the XMB.  XMB would be much faster and easier to do all your gaming.  Home will be for Socializing.
