so i got into playstation home closed beta.. it was quite interesting at first but got boring VERY fast. everything is so limited at the moment and there isnt much to do. for any of you interested in home read further
the email with the key said to be in the central court between 6-8 pacific to meet with a sony rep. after waiting 2 hours AFTER the deadline the sony rep never showed up. there was no notice to let us know that we should just leave. (really pissed a lot of people off)
if your a female DONT BOTHER with home. over the course of a few hours being logged in i ran into 3 females (not sure if they were really female) but they were harassed by SWARMS of guys. it was really sad to see that the females in question had their first experience totally ruined by a bunch of immature jackasses. and when i say harassed i dont mean oh hey baby your cute kind of crap im talking seriously offensive graphic and sexual comments being made.
surprisingly the home beta had VERY little lag.. almost none at all and i found that to be really shocking as i expected a ton of lag especially with my crappy comcast connection. movement is very fluid and the controls are great the only gripe i have about it is that you cant make your character jump i know that seems silly but hey.. i like to jump on stuff damnit!!. the custom character options are great and will be AMAZING once they allow more things such as more clothing, hairstyles, facial hair, accessorys.
in home its possible to visit several areas. your apartment where you can change the appearance anyway you please (with limitations atm). a movie theatre to watch some game trailers with surprisingly good detail and the sound quality is fantastic. there is a shopping mall type area with several different stores to buy furniture, clothing blah blah you get the idea. from the look of things it seems that all of these items will be purchased with ACTUAL funds through the playstation store and i honestly do not like that idea. when your done shopping and harassing the few females in the community you can head over to the bowling alley and play a few games with others. this is actually pretty creative and cool. you can play pool you can play a few arcade games such as echochrome, icebreaker and some other piece of crap i cant recall cause its always taken haha and you can even bowl a game with friends on one of the few lanes available (6 i think) also in the central court there is a small stage area with some stereo looking thing that plays music for everyone to dance too… kinda silly and the music sucks but has potential.
after checking it out i gotta say im impressed. BUT some things need to change.. and hopefully there will be someone taking care of the abusive people in the community on a regular basis because a lot of people were trying to be downright rude annoying and offensive and they should be removed quickly. i really cant wait to see what kinds of awesome things they make available in the future. home has soooo much untapped potential and i will def be keeping my eye on itNovember 22, 2008 at 11:28 pm #19555parnakasMember
yea man i was surprised with the no lag thing cuz im in it too
its really good and with more stuff it will be awesome
the bowling is better than some bowling games like high velocity lol
i was very impressed
i met no one to be rude everyone was polite and funny
overall HOME is just awesomeNovember 23, 2008 at 2:54 am #19558

im not too sure… i was just on a few minutes ago and heard some talk about home coming to euro in a day or so.. but as far as i know that was just rumor
as for the rude people… today i ran into a LOT of them. while just sitting trying to have a convo with a female friend of mine.. we both were constantly being humped in the face. walked on, caused to lag by idiots using their mics to blast music at us. and im not even gonna mention the onslaught of dirty comments about her pixelated body haha
god damn pervertsNovember 23, 2008 at 4:33 pm #19562
unfortunatly i have some bad news for those who didn’t get into the closed beta: Sony has annouced tht due to a lot of closed beta invites they WILL NOT be submiting an open beta anymore:( all i wanna no is how many closed beta invites were there given out. but i suppose it will allow Sony more time to work on the actual product:). I didn’t get the closed beta (i live in the UK) but if what u say bout the rudeness is true and if the purly brilliant company tht is Sony don’t suspend the b***ards that are doing it then i don’t know if i really want it:(. Unfortunatly i’ll probably be compelled to download it anyway what bout u guys lol:).November 23, 2008 at 5:41 pm #19563
anyone have an actual release date in the ukNovember 23, 2008 at 5:58 pm #19564

i got in the closed beta, and it truly has potential! given, there are a bunch of immature jack@sses right now, but thats the world for you.
i see the possibilities as endless. there's a “club” option, not dance club, but like a meeting place. you get a spacious clubhouse that you can add furniture to, bulletin boards to post messages, etc. you can search out by tags or keywords. also, they just added summer homes, new clothes, and other crap. it is limited overall, but the potential is limitless. pretty much everything has been covered in previous posts,
on another note, i've checked out several forums, looking for the true home beta one, where you report bugs or add input, if anyone in the closed beta has that url, i would appreciate it.
other than that, if you're on, look me upDecember 9, 2008 at 10:54 am #19814jamesb5374Member
This is the URL given in the open beta that I have.December 9, 2008 at 10:59 pm #19819PhillyBwoyMember
Don't be telling women not to sign up for home as it would be a MAJOR sausage fest if they didn't!! 🙂
Errm yeah anyways, did you see how the trophies are going to be used in the home app while you was playing with it? As in is there a room in your apartment where all your trophie information is kept, or are your trophies on a shelf OR i wonder if you get a choice of which trophies you want to place on show? like ten of your best or something?
I think that ten of your best idea is a pretty good idea actually!! pat on the back for me…
