This is pretty surprising. I didn't realize people were this passionate about Home. Both inFamous and Killzone 2 pre-order exclusive Home content are pretty popular. Here are a few completed auctions I found.

inFamous Reaper costume - $29.99

inFamous Reaper costume - $27.00

Killzone 2 costume - $66.00

smh.

Honestly, for the price someone paid for that KZ2 costume, the person could have just, you know, pre-ordered KZ2 in the first place, saved a few $$$ and actually got KZ2 as part of the deal, Christ.

I wonder how SCEI thinks of these auctions...

As far as these items go, it is still people paying REAL MONEY for PRETEND SHIT.

Which is pretty dumb.

As an MMO, no?

Yes, that is correct.

However, an MMO is something that people might perceive as fun, engaging, interesting interaction with story and other people.

All the things HOME most definitely is not.

So everyone think as you then?

GAF aside, the masses love Home. It really is quite remarkable. I have nothing against it, although it does get a little boring sometimes but they're helping that with new Spaces all the time. And yeah most people you see there are wearing the pay clothing.

Home is for the Fackbook society.

People who dont / barely know each other talking about random shit and super poking.

Awesome.

Not.

I don't see any problem with strangers talking to each other. Better than calling each other racial slurs. I guess one problem is that with Home, a wireless keyboard is a pretty much a must. Atleast it appeared that way when I tried it out.

I don't think the masses are involved in any conceivable way. The masses don't have PS3s.

This is interesting and impressive, however.

Somewhere...
I think the reason they do this is to stand out among their peers? I mean there plenty of ppls that go and hack Home so that they can go to Japan Home and get all their free weird items and then go about showing it off to everyone else in US Home.

If ppls are hacking Home to do that then there will be those who spend tons to do the same. So theres the easy way and hard way I suppose.

It's not even a joke, when I wear my closed beta prize clothes I have at least 10 people ask me what store and how much they are. And that's from only logging in for about 15 minutes or so.

When it comes to most popular things that I have no interest in, I can at least see what other people see in it. But with home, I just cannot see it.

I don't think you're qualified to make judgments about the masses. Where's Pachter when you need him?

You hand out a free virtual shop to people who want it, and they'll buy virtual items from your virtual shop with actual money.

The concept of Home is awesome and sad at the same time.

Yeah, I noticed this a couple weeks ago. I had the KZ2 code, but I hadn't gone in Home in a long time and never bothered to enter it. The code wasn't working so I was looking to see if I could get it on e-bay for a couple bucks. Turns out KZ2 codes no longer work they expired 4/30/09 which is garbage since Sony and Amazon never said that.

So yeah, if anyone wants a discount on Infamous you should sell it pretty soon before those codes expires. Seems like a pretty good deal for 1st party games, I'll definitely be trying to sell my Home codes whenever I preorder from Amazon.

I started HOME not too long ago and god dayum at every single thing having to be bought. Half of the clothing looks like utter trash whereas Live avatars you get stuff for free and it looks better. I have to spend $7 in real world money in order to get an outfit for something I won't appear on often.

Yeah Live is awesome and never tries to micro-charge you for anything.

oh oh. the hate is still strong against home.
Sony also just could introduce rare limited edition items/clothes with only 5 pieces around and sell it for 100$. I bet they would be sold within a week.

People can hate Home for what it is/was/will be but in the long run Sony will make money (some day :p)

- Sony makes money >>
- more money for first party devs/ IPs /price cuts >>
- .........>>
- GAF happy ?

GAF will never be happy with Home. Similar reason to why there will always be random mind boggling hate for the Wii

I don't get why they aren't introducing arcade cabinets or other games for your house. THose would fly.

If that is the result, more power to them. It's not going to cost me anything. After spending an hour or so in Home, I just don't understand the draw.
