    I am buying a PS3, not because of home (decided on buying a PS3 ages ago!), but because of the games.

    Ridge Racer 7, Virtua Fighter 5, Final Fantasy XIII [and Versus], Heavenly Sword, White Knight Story looks pretty decent...wont see that for ages though, WarHawk looks pretty decent now [hated it at first, but now...!]

    And...LittleBigPlanet! Haha aww that game looks pretty good!

    Along with these games, Home is a good addition to the PS3. I have never played online before, so having a good service like Home...for free, is pretty cool!

    [gets ready for price bashers :crazy: ]

    Well the System is good and won't get boring. Home is free but I agree, im not paying £424.99 for a system lol I see it as too much. Worth it [Because of blueray player] which is usually about £400 alone but Meh.

    I agree, but the thread topic was "Are you going to buy a ps3 because of home" and that is what i was talking about....still I wont pay $500 or $600 for the system...I will wait and see what happens this XMAS, if the 60GB comes down to $499, perhaps.

    If... I mean IF IIIIIIFFFFF Sony doesn't micro charge for buying virtual clothing, furniture and other home stuff it could help Sony. If you could unlock this stuff by playing games, that would be neat. But I swear if they charge money to buy pants, this is just another flop. I want you to think in your mind how stupid it is to buy with real money virtual clothing.

    they basically said that
    its the achievement type system where you get stuff for doing stuff in games
    you havent even tried it
    and most people who have played sims knows its VERY addicting
    or any life sim game for that matter
    and that statement more describes the Miis

    I think it is even for when you buy a game.

    "When you purchase Heavenly Sword, there will be a Heavenly Sword T-Shirt in your wardrobe"

    The only difference is, now we get to create a character, meet real people, challenge them to online games, invite them to our "Home" etc.

    If that's not going to be addicting, I dont know what is!

    If you buy a PS3 in the UK (£475 with ONE game!) you better also put some money aside for the HD TV you will also need, other wise you could be looking at a blank screen! If you buy an HD TV make sure it's 1080p for the best image so in the UK that will mean another £1000+

    Or stick with your Wii which will run on a £50 14" TV OR the 42" Plasma (if you have one) in the living room!!:wink:

    a month or so later they brought out the slimline one with the network card already in it

    i spent heaps of $$$$$$$$$ setting it up to be wireless and then they go and do that

    well not this time ill be waiting for the cheaper better faster second generation ps3

    and i want to know if u can walk up to someone and pick a fistfight in home ?? :lol:

    You're an idiot. Why would you get a blank screen? Resolution isnt everything. The ps3 on an sdtv (480i) looks 100x better than any game on the wii at 480p. Graphics and resolution are not the same thing.

    While "Home" may be good, it's free which means it could have so many problems such as Nintendo may have with their Wi-Fi. However, it is a cool feature.

    Yeah If Sony do charge for the clothing on there little virtual sim thingy, then wii will prevail in that area. Which is better though? The mii's are so simplistic yet so life like and not to mention cute =], but what we are seeing sony do is take the same idea, give it better graphics and chat capabilities. I think if Nintendo gave us a channel where you can plug a keyboard to the wii (via USB) and chat to other wii lovers then Nintendo would still be on top.

    I AM SO ANGRY at sony for ripping us all off. True the PS3 graphics are awsome. But has anyone considerd gameplay? This is a big fault in sony because they always seem to bring out terrible games with a modern names and good graphics (this happend too much on the ps2) and still make a profitable amount out of the gaming industry.
    And even then! ALL of sony's Games are made by other companys (3rd party games if i'm correct) So sony are just the ones putting interest into the production of games and not producing original games themselves, yet they get all the credit from rockstar, for games like GTA! FUUUUUUCK! This is why i love nintendo because they create games like Metriod and Zelda, because they are original, made by nintendo! not ubisoft!, not rockstar!, not blizzard! etc.

    Hmmmm this seems like to much for a reply i'm going to start a thread with more on this subject!

    Flush your PS3 down the toilet!
