Sony: PlayStation Home Is "Close" To Realizing Potential

We haven't heard a heck of a lot about PlayStation Home since it launched late last year, but it was encouraging to hear SCEA president Jack Tretton's confirmation of 6.5 million users during Sony's press conference at E3.

Furthermore, SCEA's director of PlayStation Home, Jack Buser, says the time has come to realize more of Home's potential. During a recent IndustryGamers interview, Buser called the total account number "absolutely staggering," especially when one considers the fact that Home is an optional service. They ran into a few legal issues concerning user downloads, but everyone is pushing forward and as such, Home continues to "blaze new territory." Said Buser:

"We are blazing new territory, not just with the technology, but also with the business rules and the legality of what we want to do. And it's that progress as well that's really giving us an advantage, that we're getting our heads around these truly next generation concepts and actually sorting them out."

But at the same time, Buser wants to keep taking large strides with the innovative social online service, and he wants Sony to really start an aggressive marketing campaign. As most of you already know, Home already features plenty of new spaces designed around the concept of big-name exclusive games, and Buser believes that soon, gamers of all ages and preferences will have a place to go within Home.

"This will be another milestone for us. That will probably be the time when you'll start to see Sony stretch its wings and say 'Ok, now there's enough stuff in here that, I don't care who you are and what you're into, you're going to find your space, where you want to hang out'... that'll be the time when you'll start to see it marketed big."

But Peter Edwards, head of the HGG development group in London, has expressed the need to bring Home into the limelight from the designer's point of view, and only then will it become what they've envisioned. Said Edwards:

"We need to get to the point, and we've very close, where we stop talking about potential and start talking about how Home is Home and people are no longer saying 'Home is going to be really good' and instead say 'Home is really good' and I think at that point, that's when you're in a situation where we can start doing those sorts of pushes and bringing everybody into Home."

Well, that much, I'm sure most people will agree with. We've been talking about the potential of PlayStation Home for quite some time, and although it has made tremendous strides, it still needs to solidify itself as a "must" for many PlayStation 3 owners.

I'm really enjoying Home these days. The EA Complex is the best place to be IMO! Those poker games are really entertaining.

Can't wait for more places to open up.

OMG, speaking of favorite home spaces... I'm a big fan of Texas Hold Em, and what EA has done brings the fun of online poker to the PS3 via Home. While I'd love to see EA's poker become more intricate, I have to give kudos to EA for updating their format (at least) once already.

True fans of Texas Hold Em, take note: EA is on to something. And the sports complex is where it's at...

Haha, I sound like such a tool, but I gotta give credit where credit is due. :P

I want to watch movies with people. Maybe like we both have the same disk or download and then we both press play in home then it syncs them together to play at once.

Personally I think the Resistance mini-game is the best of them all. I want to see more stuff like that. Plus that darn trophy room, now that I think of it! The Siren mini-game is refreshing too, if you can get into it.

I've been clamoring for that since it was supposed to launch in 2007. I wonder if that's a part of the "legal" red tape they've had to hurdle.

I imagine sharing pictures, videos and music via Home might have infringed on copyright/trademark rights. Well picture frames are finally there, so maybe virtual televisions and stereos isn't far off...

Then let me install a pool table and bowling lane in a private space. Picture me rollin'...

I think home is right about where "home really is good".
I mean.. If they keep making games/places like XI and EA-complex they're getting there pretty soon!

Worldendswithme - I would like to see that too.
Maybe a little "casuals space" would fit in - Hell, they could make a whole bunch of half-hearted sportsgames and call the place Playstation sports! :D

i have a really good idea, put a music studio in Home. Be able to use a singstar mic. or the Playstation eye for karaoke. You could sing songs on your hard drive or if you have your own song, write it down on paper and hold it up to your camera and it would copy it to the screen, you could have the option to either create music in the studio or have you or friends play music and record it. You could record it with your lyrics, and even make music videos and save your songs and videos and share them online.

Guys, not completely convinced yet!

Some points:

1] Spaces for games such as GT, Killzone2, LPB etc etc are needed... I guess the spaces idea works if the spaces within represent "more" of the top flight games that are out there and that I currently own.

...the way I look at it is a space for a top flight game, such as Infamous for example, should be made available the same day the game launches... there is a cyclical mismatch happening... if you want a coherent combined "ONLINE game launching" and "hung-out" space strategy to build excitement in that particular game... for the big exclusives at least, the spaces should be developed and co-launched on launch day of the title in question...

2] Generally, mini games are "ok"; fun to some extent. The worst one I have played so far is the Kart racing game in the EA space

3] The GodFather space is "meh"

4] I still feel entering HOME takes too long... Your starting point, when turning on the console, should permit to incorporate your XMB menu items and 3D menu system within "your" personal HOME space... which typically is your apartment.

The apartment XMB component should be downloaded to the the hard disk and you should start off in there - if you want to jump out of it or walk through door to the plaza, then you engage the ONLINE HOME engine... but the basic idea would be to have a "3D" type stacked XMB menu system... with your avatar appearing in your apartment from the outset... with all your media available, projected messages from your friends being shown on the wall... other nifty holographic stuff going on... feeds, what have you... SONY HAVE STILL NOT SPARKED THE IMAGINATION enough for me yet...

5] USER SPACES!!! USER SPACES!!!

There should be tools, similar to ModNation Racers or LBP, where users can submit spaces and people can experience them... LIKE AN ART FORM to some extent... they are checked and then released by Sony to be rated by the community... you release the ones with top 10 votes; the non-popular ones drop off - so you keep a continuing string of interesting commercial and user generated spaces for people to experience... not difficult really!

Still quite a bit to do... I visit HOME only once in a while!

I would say that, in regards to point 1, have a space available for a high profile game (ie Killzone, inFamous, Uncharted 2), 1-2 weeks before it comes out.
Have trailers of the game, billboards with screenshots, and mini-game(s) in its home space. Surely this will be better marketing of said title and increase anticipation for the game? Once the game comes out, you'd be able to game launch (be it single- or multi-player) from the game space.

I think you are right WorldsEndWithMe... sadly so... I still don't get the coherent vision that Sony wants for the service... for me the service is not integrated enough with the XMB experience... your starting off point... which should be very personal from when you switch on the beast...

But we will see... Sony is slowly trying to mold it into something really useful; they really are taking their time though. Their were some basics that could have really been implemented from the outset...

As said, we wait and see what they do with it.

Stickemup; yhea, it was a legacy statement... getting excited for the release of HOME. I still feel HOME is not "bad" essentially, I just think the way the service is modeled and they way you navigate it feels rudimentary for me. Even the HOME spaces menu (top down view) is very drab and "meh"... really need to improve that to!

The "i am home" statement is part of my trademark here... used it ever since I joined... and in some was expresses the feeling that yes, "HOME" is HOME, but so is PSXEXTREME for me. This site is like HOME too, because of you guys :)

Making it accessible will attract new converts to the platform!

Good points Qubex. Much agreed. Home should be an integral part of your system on boot up of your PS3. Your apartment should be your virtual xmb where you pick up your messages and see which of your friends are online. Home is a great idea, but Sony could light the fire with it in much better ways.

I go on home once in a while and do find it impressive from a tech/marketing point of view. It is one huge advertising gallery for Sony/game companies to get the message out about all the upcoming products appearing, so when you think about it, it is a great way for Sony to advertise. Unfortunately by incorporating Home with the XMB like I said earlier would help much better in that regards.

Also Sticklife made a great comment that was supposed to be a feature in home like watching videos and movies with your friends. That is something 360 owners will soon experience on Live that was announced at E3. Sony's got to step it up a little bit.

They also advertised at past E3's and video campaigns that you would be able to have a flat screen tv, or use a picture frame on your wall, and even listen and share your tunes with your friends with the virtual jukebox. Where are those items? I know they are on there way, but makes you wonder why they didn't have these things on day one as they so heavily talked about.

Plus the ability to only have a private voice chat conversation with only 1 of your friends at a time is really piss poor. Why not incorporate something like Live's party system where you can voice chat with up to 8 of your own friends at once?

Like you see my point? Home is a great concept, but it needs to start moving now. It's been out there for over half a year and needs to compete with some of the features Live offers now and will offer in the future. They have the ability to just blow your mind with what they can do and offer in it, but it still hasn't completely blowed my mind to make me want to be there on a daily basis.

Now I'm sure we will get to that heartbeat of a time, but afraid it's gonna take them a long while to get there. Even the XMB needs a overhaul update to freshen things up a bit in my mind. It still needs voice messaging/cross game voice chat/game inviting features. Funny that it took over a year and a half for that ingame/xmb function to finally come sometime in 2008. Before, while in game to read your messages you had to exit your games to find out what your friends were playing and get your messages. Hated PSN then. What a pain in the ass. They should of had that feature on day one. what a frustrating time that was.

I guess Sony is more on a learning curve this generation with their xmb apposed to MS and their Live service. And I guess if Sony offers it for free, the downside is we have to wait for the features we want to see.

I still feel that online gaming performance is way over the top for PSN over Live tho. Much larger online games/player support. Way smoother experience with way less lag and disconnections/lockup. MAG is gonna be a testament of massive online gaming experiences. I guess that is why the word is now out in the Xbox forums that they're new dashboard is performing so poorly with much increased lag performance because of all the junk they are adding to their dashboards. Takes long to log in to the system, the friends/message section almost takes 12 seconds to pop up. They're service runs really slow now and PSN downloading content is faster in my opinion now then Live. Seems like Live runs at the way slower rate to migrate around and perform functions.

I'm getting off topic here, but I guess you get my point.

Same as Quebex above, I want Home to be a success, but I'm still not entirely convinced by the whole thing.

I live in the UK so we're still behind the US when it comes to spaces which is something I still feel Home is sorely lacking, and the one time we get a really good one (Buzz) its pulled down within a few hours due to errors.

We don't have Uncharted or Warhawk yet (2 of the first spaces I believe that were launched in Home), and I'm still failing to see why? Have seen the Warhawk space, but not the Uncharted, and while its "ok" it's the fact that after 8 months of Home "beta" being launched that they are still not available thats not acceptable. If Sony can release the EA sports arena in all areas at the same time (I believe it was English only language based, with other languages to follow), then why can the other spaces not follow the same way?

When I first saw Home presented, I think, at E3 last year, I was impressed by the look of the streaming to TV's in your space and the trophy room. However, now that its likely that one of those we'll never see, whilst the other has been put on the back-burner, there's nothing really that warrants me going into Home more than the usual every fortnight just to "catch-up" on anything new thats been added.

Regarding Home spaces and regionality. This is one area where Sony needs to get off it's rear end and do something. There are at least four different regional Home instances, possibly more. It seems that each one is ruled by one of the SCE companies, either SCEA, SCEE, SCEI or SCEJ. Each has it's own Home team, and apparently just because a Home space has been debugged thoroughly in one locale, it doesn't automatically mean it's made available elsewhere. Not sure why. Seems pretty dumb to me. Japan has Namco Arcade games in their Home space, for example. There's zero reason for those to be unavailable here, or in Europe, or in Australia/New Zealand.

Personally, this corporate inertia and the whole copyright material issues are the only things that are in any way holding Home back.

And this is one that's totally within the control of Sony.

Hoodge and w3r3w0lf... thanks for your support guys, much appreciate the feedback too...

I must say I do agree with the points raised by both of you... no doubt Hoodge there is a mismatch with HOME integration and XMB... they have to get this right... I must start my PS3 within my virtual space... make it feel cozy with all my information, friend, rss streams, everything I want in there... Its RIDICULOUS Sony is charging for a picture frame and TV object... I mean come on... you should be able to invite friends into your apartment without having to go into the whole HOME application... all I want is to share a movie with a friend; ridiculous.

Hoodge, you were mentioning how effective HOME can be used to advertise SONY marketing material... yes that is true, but think about this for a moment... if Sony gave away the TV for example, as soon as you enter the apartment, there may be an advert for Infamous playing on it; or just before your begin streaming, Sony pipe a 10sec add through the TV if they want to focus your attention on something... that would cover the "cost" of giving away a 3D object such as a TV.

They could be doing so much if they wanted too...

I want to project information on the walls; make that space really feel like mine. Similar to someone setting up a personal website, your apartment is like a 3D space for you to display things, stream things and do things in... and to make HOME jump out at you and really be part of your experience; it needs to be integrated with the XMB to some degree... I don't see it any other way...

Ya for sure and if you wanna follow some of the new features that were announced coming for Xbox Live like Twitter and Facebook, why not integrate that into the Virtual TV as well in you're personal Home space.

Like cmon Sony were on a roll here, please acknowledge some of these amazing ideas and implement them. See how amazing Home could be? And i'm sure every PSN member would get into the Home action then. There would be something for everyone.

I'd say that for anyone who has ever owned a PC and a MMORPG will think that Sony's Home is far, faaaaar from being anything even remotely useful.

The lagging, the awkward menu system, the never ending loading screens, the tiny spaces between each loading screen, nothing but the promotion tools and cash registers being functional for a very long time, I honestly don't understand how so many can put up with that... They obviously must never have tried anything better to compare it with.

To me, Sony Home is nothing but a blunt marketing tool - a tool we should be paid to use.

I have to admit I did find the race track on EA are in Home great fun. I won the 2nd race without even really trying 1st go was awful kept hitting the barrier.

I like the idea of Home now at first I wasn't sure but I do like the bowling too not had time to try the other areas yet but intend to as soon as I can.

Home can only get better it is going to take time. :)

Home linked with the XMB? No thank you. I like it the way it is. It's an application that I can chose to go into. I don't want to be forced to go to HOME because for the most part, I don't really enjoy it. It's fun every now and then to go in and play poker, or bowl, or whatever, but it's not something I want to see everyday.

Not to mention that it seems every time I go in I have to re-download all the rooms.

I don't know maybe it's just me, I was invited to join Home before it launched (Pre-Beta?) and I keep going back to try it out to see if it's gotten better, but it's still not doing it for me.

When people used mic's it was annoying to listen to, it takes too long to type out a message unless you have a keyboard, You have to wait around forever to be able to play any of the games, and I'm not going to be dropping my hard earned cash on fake clothes and furniture for my fake apartment and summer home...

For some people the whole social networking thing is what they look for, but for me while everyone is at HOME, I'd rather be camping.

I know that there is lots more to come for HOME, and I applaud Sony for appealing to the networking crowds, but for me, it will never be an important part of my gaming routine, it will always stay as an after thought, something to do when I'm bored, or if there are no new/good games out.

I agree with the thrust of this article, Home is getting close to the point where people can no longer look at it and express cynical expectation. However I believe that Home suffers from a lot of people holding even higher expectations than Sony with regard to what it may or may not do.

So many of the folks here say (or express thoughts that are along these lines) "I want Home to be a success, but I'm still not entirely convinced by the whole thing. "

I always want to ask people what more they think Home should or could do to satisfy their expectations and there's always a list, as there is in this comments section. But that list is nearly always full to the brim with things that are typified by the following comment "The GodFather space is "meh"".

For a start I really don't like "meh", I think it's a lazy comment. It says more about the ennui of the person giving the opinion, than it does about the thing being commented on.

I think that people are stuck on this thought that Home has to somehow deliver a world changing, or at least game changing, experience. My friends, that is not what Home is about. It CAN be that, but it can't do it on it's own. Home is a platform, it's an application platform for things like the game spaces, mini-games, commerce and the like. However the primary focus with Home is bringing gamers together.

Home is not about someone else delivering entertainment to you, it's about you bringing that entertainment with you. Your personality, your interaction, that is what Home needs more than anything else. We get so used to just consuming the entertainment delivered by our console that we seem to have a hard time remembering how to deliver some entertainment ourselves.

Right after Home became an Open Beta people started bitching about there being a lack of content. I mean the thing was barely 24 hours old and already people were complaining that Sony had better do something or they would just stop using Home. Home at the time (the US instance) had Pool tables, Bowling, Echo Chrome, Carriage and the IceBreaker game. It took less than 24 hours for people to be bored with 5 mini-games. There are so many more mini-games available now, tons more customizations and spaces. But, even with all that extra content, people are still not content. But, is all that content really the point?

Home is not intended to be a Solo gaming experience, it's meant to be a social experience with you and at least one friend. I never did understand why people were unsatisfied with pool, for example. You're playing humans, not AI. It's just like playing pool (or for that matter bowling) at a physical location with friends.

Basically Home can be fantastic, even now, as is. Because fundamentally, Home is as good as we make it. Home can deliver more if we put more into it, ourselves. If all we do is demand more and more from Home, it will always lack.

I do agree that there are certain features of Home that are lacking from the original concept, such as game launching, and elements such as the video and music sharing appliances. But as we all know, there are legal ways to do things and then there are the ways that get you sued. So with regards to sharing copyrighted material, we have no choice but to wait for a legal way to be found. Other than that, Home is pretty vibrant these days, we just need to use it as it's intended.

Home is not a game, it's a social environment.

I still think the Godfather space is "meh"; just did not want to bother articulating why I feel this way looking at its visual appeal and quality of model :) At the time I posted my comment I was busy thinking of other things that were more important I believe.

Now, the Resistance space is "good", for obvious reasons, texturing, lighting, appeal, atmosphere etc... also, the Warhawk space is "good", look at the detail of the modeling, texturing and lighting... The Sony Podium space is "good"... nice work on that space... etc et al...

The day when Home stops evolving will be bitter sweet. On one hand, we'll have everything we ever wanted. On the other hand, we won't have anything new to look forward to.

Just my 2 cents,
I doubt that it will ever stop evolving, and I don't think it's even meant to ever stop.

Nor do I think Sony will ever let it stop evolving.
