Home: Exclusive For The Playstation 3 – Home beta for the Playstation 3 is currently out and being tested by several users. But what is Home? It’s actually quite simple: Home is a base where all PS3 players can interact with other players using an online system and invite other players to play in co-op multiplayer online games, such as Resistance: Fall of Man, or MotorStorm. Home will also be a big part in the upcoming: “LittleBigPlanet”. You will have your own space, which is known as your “apartment” where you can purchase and place your own furniture such as televisions, couches and such. Basically you can almost compare it to a PS3 version of Second Life, another simulator in which you can interact with other players online as well. While in Home, you can chat, with other characters in Home using a keyboard, or a simple tray, which you chose the letters with your controller. Bluetooth headsets are also supported with Home. Simply hold R2 on the controller to speak, and with the headset you can hear other people speaking around you also. So far there are 4 areas where you can go. First, your own apartment, where you can invite other players to come over, or simply play games with you. Second, The Movie Theatre which is an area with 10 rooms where large screens are placed and play various movie and game trailers and teasers.
Third is the Game Room, where users come to play with other players in pool, bowling, and in arcades. Last is the Lobby, which is a very large area about the size of a football field. This is where you can sit and chill out on various relaxing areas and chat with other characters. Inside are many televisions playing an assortment of videos to add a great vibe for chat. Along with the Game Room, the Lobby is the most popular spot and the “home” of Home. Creating an avatar (your character) is very easy, but detailed as well. Face creation is very in depth in choosing the symmetry, eyes, nose, and so on. There are about 20 sliders to change and design your face. One slider is for the Body as well. As stated before, you have your own apartment, which you can customize to your choosing. You can enter your apartment yourself, but you must be invited by another user to enter their apartments. Overall, Home seems like an interesting, but new and fun way to meet people and possibly friends to hang out with or if you just need someone to play with. Currently Beta is already released, but we can expect full Home system for the public on October the 10th.
In conclusion, Home Exclusive is one of the best things to have come out in modern times that has taken PS3 games to an entirely new level with intriguing twists and turns like Pokemon go accounts while playing Pokemon.
