Yes it's complete piss to be fair if this is what they have been hyping for so long then god help us.

Downloaded it a while ago and what a pointless experience the whole thing is.

You either go bowling or chat with the 40 year old men pretending to be little teenage sluts in mini skirts.

After around 2 hours messing about with it i deleted my from my harddrive quite quickly.

That's strange, I would have thought it would have been right up your street, not being on an Xbox and all that.

It's a case of Sony missed the boat and didn't want to be left behind.
Wii has Mii's.
X360 has NXE.
Sony had to do something and fluffed it with "Home".

IMO they should have concentrated on improving XMB and creating partnerships with video download providers, much like MS did with their NXE. PSN Store is pretty good, but Sony need to see about expanding the range of products and services if they want to be a contender.

You're talking shit because Home has been in development LONG before Wii or 360 was even on the market.

edit: lol you even mentioned NXE as a reason for Home? christ... you do know they've been working on Home since 2005? right? RIGHT?

Sadville for consoles. Snow Crash has a lot to answer for.

And yet it is still a poor imitiation of both, despite all that time in development. Sure, Sony might have had the original idea but Nintendo and Microsoft brought theirs to market first.
You seem to be under the mistaken impression that I don't own a PS3. I've tried Home out extensively and it comes across as a Sony sponsored version of "Second Life", without the scripting options. It isn't a show-stopper for me as I'll stil be using my console. I just won't be using that part of the "experience".

Its shit, its pointless, its a waste of bandwidth downloading the thing. Only the dimmest of sony fanboys can possibly have anything good to say about it.

But then a 3 week old dog turd with a sony badge on would be the best thing ever for some of the forumites in this section.

Fucking LOL. I can't believe you're accusing Sony of copying MS, when NXE is pretty much a carbon copy of XMB with some Mii's thrown in for good measure. The only way MS ever have original ideas is when they buy them from somebody.

Anyway for us to decry PSHome as being shit is kind of missing the point - I don't believe its aimed at us gamers. It's more to give the spouses and girlfriends in the household something to do. The average X360 user has already got their girlfriends involved. They need them, as holding the controller one handed wouldn't work, so they need to get their right hands involved as well :)

I'm not mistaking anything. You said Sony copied their competitors when in fact, they never.

And everyone else: I'm not saying it's good. It's a social network for people who own PS3s. If you're disappointed, I have no idea what you expected it to be, cos it's been obvious since they first showed it.
