    PlayStation Home - Do we need it on PS4?

    Plain and straight - Do we really need this on the PS4? Was it even necessary on the PS3?
    I'm curious if anybody even uses this at all...

    then don't play it? o_O

    what's the big deal? why are people getting uppity about something you need not even concern yourself with?

    PS Home has potential next gen if it utilises the same tech PS4 games use to let you play whilst they download, throw in some smart HDD management and the overall size of Home is kept relativity small.

    no big deal, don't want? don't download!

    i've been in home a couple of times over the years and it wasn't anything like the video suggested o_O
    some of the minigames were full and unusable as a result.

    to add to that, Sony make money from PS Home. why would they discontinue it?

    People use it. I didnt, but it did interest some people so why not? Not like theyll be forcing us to use it.
    PCs are very much like Air Conditioners.
    They both become utterly useless once you start to open up Windows....

    Yeah, if folks still use it then they should bring it over to PS4. No need pissing off Home fans. Plus, the gaming media would jump all over it.

    Even though I dont use it alot of other people do so why not have it on PS4? Its just another option open to those who are interested.

    I used it the first time and thought, how sad does your life have to be and what do you get out of a SECOND LIFE type online thing

    It is pointless and freaking useless

    For sure it'll be there, makes far too much money to ditch it. That'd be like ditching the PS Store.

    I first hought "no, I don't use it so why care?"
    Then I thought "that was an ass#ole way of thinking"
    So if some people have fun with it, it should stay for the PS4, perhaps with Gaikai or other thing it can become insanely fun, so yeah, everything that can make our life better must be preserved.

    I used it for the first 3 years I had my PS3, I pretty much thought it wasn't to bad I mean I get the whole idea of a social world aspect in it.

    The things that made me use it where :

    Mini games
    Prizes
    Meeting new users/gamers/people
    E3 Space/free clothes
    Cinema Trailers/redeem codes for free movie tshirts.
    The mini arcade

    but what I didn't like is the pay options you have to use, to get those things for the apartment an clothes an other silly things users bought into, but when you got a group of users who don't want to meet other new users rather than say he or they to busy trying to flirt up a girl user, that was annoying, I like to socialize with a lot of new ppl but you got some arrogant users on there who just mess around or stalk girls!! so in that state its pretty much usless.

    A new way to needs to be found to socialize with meeting people on the PS4.

    No, I was in the beta and just found it boring. Really don't think it has to be apart of PS4.

    I've used it for awhile the games were fun, but what's getting on my nerves now is this whole Family Bull**** and I mean Mafia style crap going on, and honestly that was a load of crap. So I up and quit because people kept asking you in a family, and then they called themselves trying to bully folks. Which you already know where I'm going with this, but trying to be a bully on PS Home YOU FAIL!

    If it's on PS4 good if not I can live without it.

    Plus the prices are a little on the outrageous side of things.

    I think PS Home has a potential to be something very cool, but on PS3 it takes forever to load and constantly loses connection to the servers. Also they still don't have most of the features they teased at Home's announcement.

    I think that there might be a lot of disabled people who use Home taking it away would probably suck for them and with the power of PS4 Home could be so much more. There's nothing wrong with roleplay unless its real life roleplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qTVjjYsH92w

    just kidding or am i

    "I think all those developers who are saying, "We donít want to do a PS3 game," or "Itís really difficult to do it," should shut up and make their games. If you have time to complain about it, then you should be spending your time working on getting the most from the hardware."

    I never use it.. doesn't really have much of an appeal to me still. A lot of people like it though, so I don't see why they shouldn't carry it on over.

    A newer version could work but i wonder if it will be left behind when there are so many other social interactions planned for PS4 such as the video sharing and the like.

    A new Home could integrate the new ideas but i suspect it will be swept under the carpet next generation.

    As soon as it started I thought it was good, but when the females joined all the blokes started behaving really immature and they were acting like flies round **** so I stopped using it.

    Home seemed like a massive waste of time and money to me. Drop it entirely, including from PS3.
