    Well that's bad timing. My activity on PSN has drastically reduced in the last two weeks since I bought a 360. Not that I think it's bad, it's just not my newest toy. :) 

    Maybe I should take this opportunity to download Pixeljunk Eden and start playing that.

    Application to join beta.......Sony, this is bad comedy. Gawd, just release it! Hell, release something that you have been talking about since the dawn of man.

    My online time on the PS3 is practically nonexistent. Hardly anyone in my friends list is on when I'm on, and if they are, they either never respond to my chat invites or I have no idea if they even have a game that I have that we can play together.

    Sounds like my 360 experience, truth be told. I don't have Halo 3 anymore and skipped the whole COD thing. One FPS a year is enough for me. Caslte Crashers will change that. But it's still an arcade so it won't last long.

    I downloaded the Theme. Was easy enough. I wish they'd release it, but I also don't want them to "rush" something out that isn't ready, either.

    Hey Trail, if I get Beta, we have to go Bowling.

    I hope Sony make good on their claim that the PS3 will have a ten year lifespan, because at the rate Home is going it won't be out until mid '09, maybe even later.

    I have 2 PS3 games.

    My "online play" is non-existent, as everything I want to play is on XBL with my friends.

    I got an invite for Home yesterday but didn't see it until this morning. How long do I have to get it downloaded Trailbreaker?

    i got invited too, downloaded last night and started it up.

    tried to customise my character but due to it being INCREDIBLY slow and lack of options, i quit straight away :S



    i think sony should have just made this feckin beta public about 2 years ago, the whole thing seems kind of pointless now.

    I don't even have a PS3 (yet) and even I find the whole "Home" idea to be a bit pointless. I mean, all it is is basically Second Life, but on a game console.

    Are they going to Beta this thing until PS4 comes out?

    It's also nothing like second life until you can walk around naked with a massive cock and push people off of cliffs with it.

    I got in this most recent round of beta, which is somewhat perplexing since I don't think I ever signed up to get in. Regardless. I messed around in it for an hour or so last weekend, and I'm just not feeling it. If I want to chat with a friend I would rather just select them from a menu and start talking; I don't want to jump into a world that exists primarily to advertise to me and talk to their avatar. Maybe I'm missing the potential here, but I can't see myself ever using this.

    It would help if there were more options. I was looking forward to redecorating my apartment, until I realized that the only option I had was the same furniture that was there by default.
