    I love it. me and my family meet at home on regular basis.

It helps to stay connected with people if you are the kind of person that is shy and doesn't like to connect by other means. I can't wait to see the announced update to this feature and how this will improve the xperience. I heard they will add the ability to create your own space and characters. Anyway, this is a step up on the right direction and an experience that is worthy of trying at least once. If you are like me you will absolutely love it.. Expand

    Ok, a rating of 10 may seem odd to some of you. PS Home is a social network of sorta, similar to second life where you walk around meetingOk, a rating of 10 may seem odd to some of you. PS Home is a social network of sorta, similar to second life where you walk around meeting people, playing games, party, run clubs/Families and participating in events that happen in PSH.
    It is also good that I waited this long in order to review home cause if I had done this review back when home had very few locations and almost every avatar looked the same, this would have more than likely had a rating of 4-5 out of 10. PSH now has more variety; you now have TV available in your apartments (must purchase TV's & Radios), more clothes, portable items, pets/companions, mounts (bikes, motor bikes, creatures & the list goes on), you also have a decent selection of animations you can purchase, tons of spaces to visit and way more games available.

    On another note, home adds another way to interact and get to know people which is not offered on any other platform outside of PC. I am one of the many who's sunk in over $300.00 in less than a few months on PSH items, clubhouses, clothes, mounts, apartments, furniture, arcade cabinets and well this list goes on as well. Home is still in beta and will always he a beta as it will always continue improving. If you have not been on home since when Central Plaza was around, you might as well try it now as it is way better now with abpot more to do. Home also has free rewards on several mini games, some retail games offer home rewards as well just in case some of you did not know but that practice is dying off.
    PS Home is part of what makes owning a PS3 worth it. I have met some good people but also met some serious trolls, this is something that happens even on games online so trolls will be trolls, at least you can ignore & report.

    Home does have lots for users to do so once you're in and manage to purchase items and meet new people you will be hooked automatically… as I said, if you own a PS3 a highly recommend trying it out.

    Hello everyone,
    It's been a long time since Home came out. Envisioned by Sony as one of the main driving forces behind it's home entertainment it didn't excell very well up to this point. However, I can really see the potential. This feature can easily be as popular as the top social networks out there. It is a very fun place to be. You can interact with your friends, check cool places, follow up on AAA releases like Killzone 3 and so. However, it seems that not a lot of people have been behind it to drive it to succeed. But I can really see the potential. Personally I am one of the regular visitors to the PS Home. I will continue to be. I am sure in the future it will have more cool features that will make people visit it more often and be a great gaming Hang Out.

    With so much to do, you can easily get lost in this online world. There are many Locations you can visit, each with their own uniqueWith so much to do, you can easily get lost in this online world. There are many Locations you can visit, each with their own unique activities. There's racing, shooting, Texas Hold'em, bowling, billiards, mini-games tied in with PS3's staple of games and more. A great way to meet other follow gamers with like minded interests, you can easily join other parties and jump into a game through Home.

    There's a wide variety of downloadable items for your avatar and living space, free and otherwise.

    If there was only one thing wrong with Home, that would be the lack of explanation of what to do and where to do it.

    This was a great idea by Sony, i'm a little surprised that microsoft did not think of this. a place where you can hang out with your friendsThis was a great idea by Sony, i'm a little surprised that microsoft did not think of this. a place where you can hang out with your friends play games and even watch some MOVIES! in the loot theater, although i don't think alot of those are interesting. its still pretty cool to do that on a virtual world. although i think playstation home should have its own in game currency instead of using real money.

The43/100: PlayStation Home is actually Sony's own Sims game. You can customize your own home, buy other homes and visit community spaces. The sad thing is that almost all of the community spaces are crap, the games you are able to play in PlayStation Home are not that good and making a nice sweet space you can call your home doesn't work that great. It's fun to try out, but after you've played it once, twice or maybe three times, you're done with it. Expand
