Review of Sony's PlayStation Home for the PlayStation 3 Console

500°
299w ago - To start off, I would like to say that overall I like PlayStation Home for PS3, but I did find quite a few gripes about the overall scheme of things.

The Problems:
The biggest problem I have is the Hard Drive space it uses. When I first downloaded it and saw the "77MB" Download, I was relieved to find out that it only used a small amount of space. Not true, after downloading it asks you to "Dedicate 3 GB of storage to home".

I didn't have a problem with this so much, but to my surprise almost immediately when you start it uses a good chuck of that space. So I strongly wouldn't recommend this to anyone with a 20GB Hard Drive, and would be against it with a 40GB one.

The other problems I have with Home are minor, but still annoying. One of them being because you're slower then a slug moving at top speed.

The next being that things cost real money (Not that big of deal). And that you can't play a arcade game someone else is using.

The Good Stuff:
With the release of Home, Sony gave us a awesome games room. You can play some Echochrome level's for free. As well as my personal favorite where you fly around in a flying saucer (Saucer pop). Other worth while games are... Chess, Ice Breaker (More commonly known as Brick Break), Bowling, and Pool.

SuperCar Challenge Announced Exclusively for PlayStation 3

50°
299w ago - System 3 and Eutechnyx have announced that they are developing SuperCar Challenge exclusively for the PlayStation 3, and that it will hit in spring 2009.

The game is a successor to this year's Ferrari Challenge and will feature 40 vehicles (including Ferrari FXX & 430, McLaren F1, Aston Martin DB9, Lamborghini Murcielago) and will also feature a more involved career mode.

To quote: System 3 and Eutechnyx are at work on SuperCar Challenge, a successor to this year's Ferrari Challenge that's to come exclusively to the PlayStation 3 next spring.

Key features are the inclusion of a wide breadth of supercars, in a response to criticisms of Ferrari Challenge's single minded focus on the Scuderia, and the introduction of a more involved career mode.

Ferrari Challenge received a favorable 8.3 upon review earlier this year - for more information on the follow-up, check out our exclusive hands-on.
