Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

No I didn't get one.

Did you try it ? is it it actually any good?

There will be an open beta before the end of the year anyway so don't mind too much if I don't get on the closed beta.

Got it as I was going to bed last night, so haven't had a look. Will have a look when I get home and let you all know.

It was announced a couple days back. They were going to send them monday and there email filter took it as spam so most failed to get through. They resent them lastnight with thursdays planned invites. It was around 500,00 invites I believe.

Its to stress test the servers. Open beta for everyone is just a couple weeks off now to.

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

It does also say you aren't supposed to discuss it with anyone outside of Home or the Home forums

---------- Post added at 18:11 ---------- Previous post was at 18:10 ----------

But I did get one

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

Had it for a few days. Pretty boring at the moment, since there's nothing really available.

But I like what I've seen, and the potential is huge!

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

So what does everyone think? Personally, pretty, but bland. Glorified chat room with money-making possibilities for Sony as people fork out money for furniture & appartments in a virtual world. Nothing in the shops at the moment, which is disappointing. Maybe they should have given us all x amount of points or whatever and let us buy some things. 1 good thing is the echochrome game in the bowling alley. Ok, that's my hour on the PS3 for the next 3 months!

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

The thing is at the moment its easy to become bored. Its not so bad if you have your friends on and I believe its really good for getting groups together and launching games. Not Home game PS3 games.

It is only small at the minute and even then alot of the features are not yet being used but I think it has massive potential especially with the club's that you can join of your favorite games etc etc.

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

I've had it since Saturday.


Found it very boring so far, & rather lifeless & pointless.

There simply isn't enough to do. All a bit "meh" at the moment.

While I understand that it's just a Beta, & there is certainly potential for it to be a whole lot more, I really don't get why it has taken them so long to come up with this...


Still...Open Beta by the end of the year, plus allegedly a "big update" within a week or so...

I just think that even when they've put things in the shops and added more arcade games and some movies, it's just going to be something that people skip, unless they want to chat with friends. It's just a huge amount of effort to create this 'thing' that everyone will tire of in a week or two.

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

So how do you explain Second Life?

Personally I agree with you. Why do I want to sit online pretending to be at bar/cinema/bowling alley

Re: Playstation Home Exclusive Invitation

What people seem to be missing is it will be used to create groups and launch games with friends all from the same place. You can join clubs for your favorite games and I would expect with this you can run compertitions and challenges with friends and other fans of the games etc etc

These are all things that will help it. At the moment is very basic as its only a Stress Test. The clubs etc etc are what I'm looking forward to. If its done right it could be great.
