PS3 Home: I'd Rather Be Homeless

According to this awesome article:

PS3 Home, probably one of the most hyped features that Sony had to offers consumers who were considering, or regretting, buying a PS3.
Perhaps the most anticipated feature, for me at least, was the addition of trophies, the fabled trophy rooms, and the mythical trophy rewards. Sadly, besides the addition of trophies, none of this came into fruition.
You open Home, still having to look at that sad blue icon reading "Beta" on it. Then after an annoying amount of loading you enter your character customization, which might be the only fun part of the entire experience.
You check out some of the stores, only to find their wares limited, and costly. One could spend $100 without breaking a sweat to make your house and yourself presentable. Why not give us a few freebies? How much is a digital sofa or T-shirt really going to cost you if you give it out for free? Instead, you say forget the superfluous stuff, let me get to the real point of this...game isn't the right term...application? Go out into the main square, or the movie theater, or the bowling alley, or the few game specific rooms that are available, you are sure to be disappointed. There is simply nothing to do. There is no reward for "playing". The new Sodium Space is a step forward, but it is nowhere near enough to make Home worth even mentioning.
Overall, Home has been an incredible disappointment. We hardly hear of any upcoming news for it, and what we have right now is nowhere near entertaining. The question is, will Sony ever make an effort to correct the disaster that is Home?

  2. That was stupid. I go on Home to chat with my friends, and I'm not having any trouble doing so. This just sounds like another noob who overthinks the "beta" tag and expects everything to be free.

  3. sh*te article to be honest. has this site really been reduced to searching the net for negative Home articles from pre pubescent teens in order to put home down?

  6. For real, i just bought an xbox and im never looking back. Home is a failed idea, it will never be what it set out to be in the closed beta. They have totally switch objectives from making home worth it for us, to making it "$$$$worth it for them$$$$". the only reason they keep the beta tag is so they can shut it down without notice and tell you "it was only a beta, you should have read the agreement, thanks for all the money you suckers." Sony can keep home, the post said it best, id rather be homeless....
