My impressions of Playstation Home

A few days ago I got an invite for the closed beta of PlayStation Home and i thought i would share my thoughts.

Home looks great but being only in its beta i find that you are very limited as to what you can do. The in game ads is a awesome way for Sony to make money off of this project There is really a limited amount of people but i look forward for this to come out of beta. It has plenty of potential.

Anyone else got an invite ?

you need to have applied for it.. i did so a few months back and got an email with an invite code.

In the PS Store you must download the Home Theme to apply to the beta :)

hope it helps

Indeed it does. Thanks for clarifying.
A friend of mine got a beta key too, but he never uses his PS3... I think I'm gonna go over and try his, maybe get some good input ehre.

Be careful with disclosing too much information on your HOME experience. We're still in the beta phase, and, as such, there's still a lot covered under NDA that we really can't talk about yet. The good news is that the beta is gradually opening to more new users and that we're actually into Version 1 now (rather than 0.98).

Vague impressions may be all right (like the new arcade games in the Bowling Alley fare better than the ones in v. 0.98), but specifics are kinda taboo right now.

I got in and i must say as a community its great. Im not too sure how Sony is going to play it out but if its done based on community to compete with Xbox Live then its going to be amazing. I think if they start taking the sims or Second Life rout then it may not do as succesful because it just turns into a game at that point and as a game this fails. As a community its friggin great and blew my expectations away.

The look is clean and very well done. It needs friends though. Without a buddy walking around with you, you will get extremely bored and possibly annoyed by all the idiots running about. It is fun to meet new people, and i even added 2 or more people to my friends list thanks to home so thats all great.
