It's fine if people hate it. The point is some people enjoy it. And really, not every owner of a Ps3 is gonna like it.
I haven't and I've had my PS3 since 2007. I haven't because, well, it looks like shit. Sorry Home developer, but I'd rather not go online bowling, thank you very much.Tom Goldman said:I would think that anyone with a PS3 hooked up to the internet has tried Home as some point, explaining the first figure.

That's pretty much what happened to me, except I plodded around a bit.Julianking93 said:It kinda is.
I tried it a couple days ago, but got pissed off that I couldn't get my avatar to look anything like me, got bored, then deleted it and I'm never going to bother with it again.
Is there some conspiracy at work here? It took me forever to design one that didn't look gay or very feminine on my 360. (It's not just me. All my friends hate it for that reason too.) The avatars don't walk much, but the way they stand sure is gay. I hate 360 avatars with a passion. I ended up with one in a hat with the crazy skull make-up. It wouldn't have been so bad if it were at least optional like Home is.Neikun said:Faster movement speed and a less gay walking animation would take Home a long way forward.
Let's be honest. For someone to be able to say "there are 1.7 million repeat users..." it may just mean that a lot of people have used it more than once because it has been out for a little while and they keep going back to check if it has become any better. They stick around for 50 minutes, realise it is still naff, then quit playing again. The repeat users may be "regular" but they'll be regular the same way eclipses are regular. Occurring at fixed times. But not often.Tom Goldman said:Somebody must be into Home, as Ewing says that "one in three PlayStation 3 owners use Home" and "there are 1.7 million repeat users each using Home for around 53 minutes on average." I would think that anyone with a PS3 hooked up to the internet has tried Home as some point, explaining the first figure. The second figure can only be explained by the addiction people seem to have to virtual dancing and harassment of female avatars.
