    Playstation Home - Why Is It So Rubbish ???

    Just started using it and apart form it being pretty bland and threadbare I lose my connection all the time ! last about 10 seconds in the resident evil set but get kicked out of everywhere else eventually as well, also I cant quite convince myself £1.79 for a pretend table is a worthwhile investment......

    So am i , my ps3 has been in the box for over 6 months ,couldnt sell it tried for ages lol, decided to get it out and try home and killzone 2, as I say home is a load of cack, mind you cant see a lot of developers creating areas for it because why should they just for people to visit them once and realise theres nothing to do in them, the graphics are nice though ill say that much.

    SO true, as a media centre it excels, particularly as i now have a bluray burner. But as a gaming system, it's a distant second.

    Multiplatform games never run as well as the 360 versions
    online is poor
    very slow downloads of things
    voice chat is poorly implemented
    extremely tedious forced installation of some games
    trophys are a poor mans achievements and only available in some games

    as the other fella says, its a better media centre than the the 360 but not a better games console, im lucky enough to have both but the ps3 see very little action on the gaming front, ill buy the 360 all day long over the ps3 one.

    Beware, ps3 fanboys (usually asleep at these times) will wake to find this and they aint gonna be happy.

    PS3 fanboys are people who have never played a 360 ! ive yet to meet someone who has both and prefers the ps3, sad fact

    I have a ps3. Really happy with the online gameplay and never use the online chat utility.

    Do agree about the long downloads though, frustrates me quite a bit at times. Isn't there some kind of pojnts system on the 360? That sounds kinda cool but i'm bot bothered about trophies anyway.

    Overall, i've played on both and would still choose the PS3 over 360. Just my opinion thats all.

    Everyone knows someone who has had a broken 360 right?

    i do because ive had one !, no chance of my ps3 ever overheating though because its never on long enough lol

    Ex-box is the loser in every part, to upgrade it to PS3 standards costs way more than a PS3, its media is worse. have to pay for online, i could go on but everybody already knows this. peace

    First ps3 fanboy response goes too....

    *rises to the bait*

    you dont half talk a load of flannel mate, tell me about all these multiplatform games that perform better on the ps3 then ? orange box? oblivion ? fallout 3? gta? resi 5? lol

    They had to massively cutback GTA 4 did they? rubbish.

    Ill tell you why they have to install games, because the bluray drive is so slow it takes an age to load anything off these amazing bluray disc you seem to love.


    most of the back catalogue dont have trophys, the achievements on 360 are better and easier to view, you want to view your trophies and it has to 'synch' for five minutes lol.

    the download speeds are cack, nothing wrong with my connection,

    glad you prefer the silence of the chat in ps3 by the way, really pleased for you lol, nice work with the 'ex box' bit though, really clever

    lol....i had a 360 for about 3 year....then my warrenty ran out after swapping 4 360's i didnt wanna end upo with a brick so i swapped a ps3, never thought id like it more...but i do....yeah loading and installation can be a pain but so far thats all i find any different.....online on cod is the same for me on both consoles, i dont use online on any other game so i cant comment....anyway i dont get the fanboys, its down to choice at the end of the day....

    plus yeah i never got addicted to the achievment thing....

    Just to add a little something to the pot: Killzone 2 online is rubbish.

    Silence, thats another good point, hows your jet? lol

    About a month ago I left my PS3 on for a whole week without turning it off.

    Why did I do that?





















    Because I can. You can't do that with a tree sixty without it breaking.

    But anyway, I never have time to play on the PS3 anymore. I'm too busy earning money and clubbing VIP style.

    Easy for you to say the Playstation Home is rubbish when the Xbox has no such thing

    I have a PS3 and 360. I prefer the PS3 as it was much more ready out the box (WI-FI, rechargeable controllers, free online gaming). I also love the blu-ray. From what I read there are very few differences between the multi-platform games. I also hate to say it but I much prefer the PS3 games catalogue (Motorstorm, MGS4, Little Big Planet, Buzz, Formula 1, Uncharted, Singstar and Heavenly Sword - well kinda).

    Saying that I have gta4 on my 360 and playing that online is amazing.

    Its rubbish because Playstation home is for geeks and freaks and not the good or hip ones - the ones who play world of warcraft and get married online and in real life

    If you think its rubbish dont worry youre just normal - now go buy yourself an xbox 360

    Lol, I'm lucky enough to have all three systems (plus a dead 360!) and since having the PS3 the poor 360 has just been gathering dust, when I get round to switching it on (for old times sake..) I keep thinking the other half's doing the hoovering, its good but once you've tried both you know which one's really won the war...

    PS3 fanboys - The KFC is a PS3 fan.

    The 360 therefore wins by default.


    lol

    I love my PS3 as it's a cracking blu-ray player and it's easy to update the firmware. But as a games console it doesn't match up to my 360.

    my mate bought a 360 then a ps3 then sold the ps3 cos it ****

    I'm with you on the in-environment costs for virtual furniture & clothing etc, but it sounds like you have an issue with your connection. Granted I don't visit the PlayStation(r) Home (Beta) universe regularly but I have been online for hours without any issues. (I was last there 8 days ago & stayed online for well over an hour without any connection woes).

    Do you connect to your Internet Service Provider via a Router? Maybe check the firewall settings & if you have a log file see if any ports are being blocked whilst your are logged-in. Opening these (for the duration of usage of 'Home') may improve the situation.

    BFN,

    fp.

    PS. When you are disconnected abnormally can you use the PS3 web browser & the PlayStation Store without any problem?

    i dont understnad why ppl prefer 360....achievments are naff IMHO ....yeah some games like GOW Halo etc is a factor for some which i can understand. But the rest i dont get. The PS3 offers blu ray, an excelent media player, i watch all my dl films thru it etc... games play the same for me, i.e i had fifa 09 and cod wow on both consoles and see no difference.

    blah blah blah blah, I've got the biggest...... same old pack of poo!

    The ps3 is an amazing piece of kit and I use mine for HD movies, music etc.

    But as a games machine, the 360 knocks it into a cocked hat.

    i was happy with my 360 till i got the ps3 but for playing my games they were exactly the same for me....

    one thing i didnt like about the 360 was multiplayer was always online....hardly any games were made for local multi....

    but to me they are the same but ps3 wins cos of the media player....

    saying that, my brother has had 7 360's and he would rather buy 6 360s than 1 ps3....but its cos all of his friends play 360 online and he is on there 24/7....so i guess it just depends on what sort of gamer u are

    What a stupid argument why do you lot waste your time arguing about which is better?

    Besides we all know the xbox 360 is!:-D

    I actually bought my 360 2006 and Ive never had a problem as long as Ive had it, saying that guess im just lucky

    Just a quick note on what Dark Knight said on page 1 about the Xbox hindering PS3's GTA 4, just a quote from a link I found:
    "Rockstar product development VP Jeronimo Barerra has revealed that technical issues with the PS3 were partly to blame for last fall's delay of Rockstar North's Grand Theft Auto IV (PS3, X360).
    "It's really no surprise to anybody that the PS3 was definitely a contributing factor to that," Barerra told MTV"

    DVD - Max 8.54Gb for a single sided dual layer
    Blu Ray - 50GB for a single sided dual layer (up to Terabyte technology on its way)

    This is only one reason why Xbox holds back quality multiplatform games for PS3

    it doesn't matter what you say. Blu Ray is a better choice, and thats only part of the whole winning set up. there are so many better things with the PS3, and every time someone says Xbox is better i just laugh at their ignorance and lack of intelligence

    I assume these arguments will be running for ever more.
    Personally as long as you are enjoying playing your games who gives a fig what console its on.

    Original Poster

    The fact of the matter is no game has ever filled the 8.5 gig on a dual layer dvd, with the exception of rpgs with a lot of fmv, suggesting the 360 is 'holding back' the ps3 because it uses DVD is one of the most laughable arguments ive ever heard on the matter, and this is where my discussion ends lol.

    Insomaniac's knowledge of gaming = Epic Fail

    P.S - Get a better ISP or something because your internet connection is to blame for all your troubles

    Can't download PS3 games :whistling:

    Same none of my 360s have ever been RROD. My frst xbox got rid of it cos it got banned, second one got rid of it for a hdmi, hdmi one got banned lol, then i got a normal one, then got my elite. None of these xbox's suffered any problems.

    My ps3 doesnt do nothing, gets used for web browsing and the odd few demo , and the only game i have which is time crisis 4.
