    I tried Home on the playstation3 for about 3 minutes and decided it was pointless. I can see the thought behind it but can't see it becoming anything that I will use.
    The PSP is not a multiplayer console in anything like the way that the PS3 is, and having to be connected to the internet all the time, coupled with the huge amount of storage needed (on the PS3 at least) means I think the whole is pointless.

    Playstation Home would be far more entertaining if you could buy guns

    I am glad I am not the only person who thought this.

    Right after starting in the apartment I thought this would be a perect sniping point...... The engine seems quite good as well, its just a shame home is anything but.

    there is a game in PlayStation Home called Sodium One that allows you to pilot a mech and destroy other mechs in vehicle combat. There has also been quite a few new spaces added with shooting games and other types of games. Home of the past was way worse then whats available now.

    PS Home is very successful for Sony, apparently there are plenty of people paying for crap to put on their avatars or in their apartments. It probably doesn't work that well on a mobile platform that is hacked beyond repair.

    Don't see the point of Home. I'd rather chat with people who share general interests/game's which I can do, by playing those games. Home seems to be for the socially inept who can't go out and speak to anybody at all.

    It has nothing to do with people being socially inept. Plenty of people put their entire lives online, Facebook friends, Twitter followers, etc. You can't tell me all these people are socially inept. It;s just another platform to interact on.

    YAY!!!! I wish they canceled it on PS3 too.



    and no, it's not being socially inept. it's called social retardation.

    i cant stand some people at school sitting in the cafeteria at lunch playing with their stupid ipods talking about their wifi connection strength and each others facebook pages the whole time. :wallbash:

    they are in the other class for my course luckily. now me and the guys from my guys dont sit with them anymore.

    Intel will still need to provide USB ports (although they could stick to USB2) for years if not decades. Do they expect me to replace my USB keyboard and mouse next time I build a PC? Because I won't. Hell, I still know plenty of people using PS2 connections for those.
