Exclusive Look at Home Beta 1.6
Posted by XanTium | 25-7-2007 12:43 EST
First let me point out that this is all done in "Home Beta 1.6" and Sony is continuing there updates to Home for more content and also with much feed-back from users through the beta. Users start out with there own "Home Space" where they design the inside of a pre-made house. The customization within these houses are endless as you can take 50 different objects and place them ANYWHERE in your house. Make a tower of chairs or a movie theater type seating arrangement. Anything you want can be done here!
Next, Users can go to one of many other locations via a portal or there "Home PSP's". These locations include the Game Lounge, Central Lounge, or the Theater Lounge. These locations offer many different things to do in them such as in the Game Lounge you can play pool, bowling, and five different arcade games, but more is expect in the next updates to follow. The next spot in the Home journey is the Central Lounge where users can just go and chat and offers a lot of seats. The last location is the Theater Lounge where users go to watch trailers and movies and game previews that are soon to come out and they can watch in a theater or on a preview screen in the halls.
Much is to be added later in these different lounges but as of now, the beta is working out many of the glitches for the main game. I have had to reset the PS3 several times when relocating to a new lounge or when playing pool but that is expected in betas. Aside from the few bugs, Home offers great things and much more is expected in the coming months to the first public launch.
