No, they have been advertising HOME on TV since November of 2007.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SgHZ2xaigwk
No stupid fanboy is going to fool me. I'm too smart.
Don't address people as stupid! (You know what it leads to)
The advert is a general advert for the PS3, it is not in any way and out and out advert for Home. But you know this.
A whole six months. My goodness how dare they. It has not been on the TV over here and certainly never advertised anywhere as ready to roll.
If your comment about fan boys was aimed at HotKnife, then you don't know the guy. he has both systems and is not a "fanboy" by any stretch.
Let's deal with your comments
You really want this rushed out? It is simply another feature that some will like some will not. It's not a make or break thing. Would you not rather have a stable product? Konami rushed out PES2008 with horrendous consequences. people like myself who stumped up £40 for the game would rather it not have appeared on the market and waited.
On top of that, Sony is not talking about bringing in-game private chat and messaging to the PS3.
They said they would aim for this by update 2.4. Would you rather them talk about it all the time or perhaps advertise it on TV as in the above example you gave? You would then be saying they keep promising it but don't deliver. Rather difficult to please you in that scenario.
No one talks in multiplayer because the PS3 did not ship with a headset. So no one will go out and spend the money for a blue-tooth headset.
Newsflash the 360s don't all come with a headset either. Even the Pro console in some regions has no headset. From a personal view point it is a bonus as I don't wish to listen to kids who are not old enough to even be allowed to play a game, constantly cursing and using racially offensive language in order to look like a gangsta. A lot of players on XBL complain about this happening. People who wish to talk in co-op will buy a headset.
Sony is selling blu-ray, not a gaming console and when I look at my PS3 I know that's it's best feature, yet in reality it shouldn't be. Gaming is supposed to be priority on a gaming console.
This nobody can help you with. There are plenty of great games available now for the PS3 and the old " No Games Argument doesn't hold" If there is nothing that suits you now or on the horizon, then I don't see how you are ever going to be happy with it. Have you tried the haze demo?? I am no FPS fan but I will certainly be buying this having waltzed through the demo in Co-op mode.
Sony never sold the PS3 on the premise of a games only machine. They (like MS) wanted a complete multimedia solution. The console at the moment is well under way to achieving this.
The whole waiting for things to be released and the build up is part of everything we do and I can certainly be patient for Home.
