Re: Need opinions for controversy

May 6, 2013

I see PlayStation Home as a social 3D network where you can play mini-games and socialize with diverse gamers from different backgrounds. Also it is used to take a break from playing their PS3 games. Everybody is entitled to their opinions of what Home is all about and its main purpose.

 

There are some rotten apples who give others a hard time on Home saying "it's just a game" to justify their bad behavior when it's actually the other way around that made them act out negatively.

Yeah, I only posted about it because I saw opposing fams going at it over what home is just sick of it didn't know it was posted on the forums before I'm not trying to resurrect any dead threads though as they do with the freezing threads, I just wanted a few opinions. I understand though and I'll be sure to check this out, thanks.

As the title says, I just need a few opinions on what they think PlayStation Home is. I see users arguing within PlayStation Home all the time about whether or not it's just a video game and I'm sick of it. So, my question to everyone is what do YOU see it as? a game or something else entirely?  


You're sick of it, but want to hear more? lol How about....it's whatever you want it be.


lol no no perhaps I should've been more clear, I'm sick of fams fighting over it I am interested though in learning how others think of it  without having harsh words thrown at each other, which was my main purpose in posting it.

It is a social platform, not a game in and of itself. I would compare it to IMVU or even Gaia. It has games in it, to be played socially for the most part.

I work at  very stressful job. Like most folks I sought something to relax with. Having a PS3 that initially was for playing Blue Rays movies and a few games. I clicked onto the home icon out of curiosity and my journey began. I try to stay away from labels when I can. I think arguing about what home is or isn't just turns out to be a pointless stress builder. I knew I was a home addict when one day at work I had this one guy really giving me a hard time. From instinct I broke into the laugh emote then followed up with the gun emote. The guy might of thought I was nuts but we both had a good laugh and things went smooth from there.:womanvery-happy:

Home is Sony Computer Entertainment's virtual world/Community-based service for PlayStation gamers. A social/gaming platform.

Home is a place where magical little friendly pixels called "users" gather to make friends, play games, and just socialize! -Axel voice- got it memorized? :smileyhappy:

I see PlayStation Home as a social network, It has many uses like meeting new people, playing games, customization features, enjoying spaces, viewing advertisements for games and most of all having fun.

I use Home mainly because I find it a better way to interact with others, I find playing when games with other users it's really difficult to attain any communication, so there are many uses of PlayStation Home for each of us and perhaps you should try to find your own use of it as well.

If you're sick of people mischaracterizing Home, argue with them there if it bothers you.

As mentioned, there already are numerous threads about this where you can gather whatever it is you're looking for and a nifty site called Wikipedia where you can gather facts from trusted sources and come to an already established fact that, by very definition, Home is a social gaming platform.
