Beta Testers To Select Home's Theme?

The more we learn, the more we have to think that PlayStation Home isn't too far off. But they've still got some changes and tweaks to make, as they're currently in the process of surveying beta testers to get further feedback.

According to Kotaku (and a few of its readers), these pictures shown here are part of that survey. One of the more prominent questions asked was, if the user could pick, what would they want Home's central plaza/hub to look like? As you can see, testers could select from futuristic settings to tranquil nature locales, and it'll be interesting to see which locale gets selected. Early media of Home doesn't show any of this; we've only seen what must've been brief mock-ups of meeting locations within Home. We've also seen examples of what our "Homes" or apartments might look like, but obviously, the primary hub of this service is ultra-important. We don't want to be stuck with something hideous, now do we?

As soon as Sony wants to issue anything official regarding PlayStation Home, we'll be sure to let you know. However, we have the sneaking suspicion they'll be waiting until E3 to do this, so anything until then won't be much more than speculation and rumor. Still, something like this is worth talking about, because it's not really a rumor, and the beta testers really are helping to shape this virtual world.

From the Beta forums it seems most of the people either chose D or E. I chose D.

A is sorta future NY looking I guess, B looks like some sorta airplane hanger, C looks like some sorta Scientology building, D looks like any big city...at night, E looks like some place in England, F looks like some house in the woods that nobody really knows about, G looks inspired by Star Wars on Lukes home planet, H looks like a NASA building, I...I'm not sure what the hell I looks like, sorta looks like when you turn on your PS3 and you see the wavy stuff across the screen before your theme/background shows up, J just looks like a strip mall of some sort. I'm going to have to vote with A,D,E, or I. :-P

D or I. I'd prefer I simply for the fact it's not something you see everyday, it's almost futuristic, which is exactly what HOME is... It's out of this world :P

I like J. Remember this has to be a location you can see yourself navigating round. I can't see that with option I.
