PlayStation Home is, honestly, a place where nerds crowd around female avatars and act awkwardly. At launch, it was damn near desolate. A lot of gamers were turned off of the massive interactive chatroom because of the shear fact that there wasn’t too much to do at launch, despite the free access.
Sony swears that times have changed. They’ve put a lot of time into developing the atmosphere and making it more appealing and friendly to users that take advantage of the space. And now, they want you to get off your damn high horse and take a second look. Our words, not theirs.
PlayStation Home Platform Director Peter Edward spoke with Develop about the service.
“I hear all the time ‘I logged on when it first launched but there was nothing there’ – but I urge people to go back on there. It’s been two years. We were always very proud of what we had achieved for launch, but we’re the first to admit it was basic back then…
…Two years down the line it has come on in leaps and bounds, is vibrant, full of cool content and great games to play. It’s free – those who aren’t going in there are really missing out. If you think Home is what it was two years ago, do yourself a favour and have another look, you won’t be disappointed.”
