Sony Insists PlayStation Home Can be a PS3 System Seller

300°
310w ago - SCEE's PlayStation Home service manager Dan Hill has stated that in time PlayStation Home will definitely become a reason to buy the PS3. He added that right now the service is evolving, and no one else is doing anything on the same scale or ambition.

To quote: Speaking to CVG, Home service manager for SCEE Dan Hill stated: "In time I would say that Home will definitely become a reason to purchase PS3. Today, we are at the beginning of a long journey - now is the time to start its evolution. No one else is doing anything of this scale or ambition.

The PlayStation Network is getting better all the time. Home is integral to our online offering. If you buy a PS3 and you grow with us, as Home evolves, you are going to become part of something very special, something unlike you can experience anywhere else."
 

Sony's PlayStation 3 Console is Where it is Because of You!

310w ago - When people were clammering about how they don't care about backwards compatibility, then when it was cut and people whined, we kept our mouth shut.

When 360 announced they will allow games to be copied to the hard drive, much like the PS3 has done from day one, we didn't say anything. But, we feel it is time to speak up.

The Game is Called "LET'S COMPARE"

So you think your 360 is great? Ok, we can agree with you. But lets compare apples to apples here. What does it take to get your 360 up to par with the PlayStation?

Price

First off, the 360 has dropped its prices considerably, the least of which is sitting at $199. Not half bad. But to truly enjoy the services Xbox 360 can offer you, what do you need?

PS3

Base price: $400
WiFi: Free
Online: Free again
HDD: 80Gb Included
Component: $25
TOTAL: $425

360

How Sony Can Improve the PlayStation Home Experience on PS3

250°
310w ago - So, the Home Open Beta has launched, and while it's another step in the right direction, I still find little to no reason to fire it up.

Here are some ideas that Sony should be considering, if they already aren't.

More Character Customization

What's there already is good, but it's next to impossible to create a character that looks even remotely like me, especially in the face area.

The sad thing is that the underpowered Wii can make a recognizable Mii of me, as can in-game editors in The Godfather and, what came closest so far, Fight Night Round 2. In fact, Sony should look closely at the Fight Night character creation, because I'm convinced that it can do anything.

In addition to this, allow our Home avatars to be used outside of Home - maybe in games like BUZZ! Quiz TV, or sports games, etc. just like the Xbox 360 avatars and Wii's Miis.

The limited options that currently exist for PSN account icons are ridiculous. There are 23 pages or so, most of which are crap. Allow us to set our PSN avatar to a headshot of our Home avatar, and this would solve that problem in one fell swoop.

Complete XMB Functionality

The XMB is fast, sleek, and simple and really, pretty bloody awesome. But Home is supposed to be this new...
