ok guys. im not on the up and up with all the stuff that Home will provided, but after seeing what the new fall update will provided the Live customers, what will HOME bring us that Fall Live will not have? other than an apartment/house and a vrtual world to walk around in?

The bigger question is when will Home be released?? Its been in beta test for quite some time. It seems as if sony has lost focus with Home, trying to accomplish too much.

other than an apartment/house and a vrtual world to walk around in?Thats like saying what does BMW offer over Kia, apart from luxury, power, and prestige.

no im not saying that at all. Im not educamated on what all HOME has and wanted to get some more info. and im sorry if you feel that the PSN is like owning a KIA. its sucks rolling down your windows when you can simply hit a botton and have it done for you :)

Home is live, but you walk around and have a house and whatnot. Kinda like the Sims online, but you can meet up with friends at someones custom decorated 'house' and join games like that.

Possibly even show up unexpected and ask to join the current game.

Much bigger deal than a new GUI IMO.

HOME has been delayed once too many times; something is up. IDK if it's due to complexities in programming, expenses or like I read elsewhere, trying to get sponsorship.

At the end of the day though, something major is up. No executive in their right mind would ever make a comment that the end product could be two years out without something being FUBAR’ed!!
Anyway, my :2cents

My Favorite part: "I don't think that 'just you wait' is the message we wanted to deliver though I could see how you want to intepret it that way," he said. "We wanted to lend a little historical perspective. What is selling PS3s today, to your point, is not where we're going to be in years four, six or ten."
