Great idea poorly executed and launched well after the horse bolted!

Excerpt: This was a concept that I was genuinely excited by, let's face it, since we all played our C64's or spectrums most of us have considered the idea that we would have our own avatar in our own social world where we looked how we wanted and acted how we pleased within reason of course. Home looked like this could be a launch platform for this somewhat childish escapism, if it was brought out prior to MMOPRGS like WoW or other social platforms like Facebook!
Excerpt: PS3 Home has to be one of the biggest anti-climaxes that game out of the gaming industry. The hype that came with this new and exciting feature when it was first released via an update for the ps3 a few years ago was massive and I remember not being able to wait for the list of features and exciting functions that Home would provide.
Summary: The public had been starving for a new way to socialize online, and with the promise of endless entertainment and customization, Sony gave us Playstation Home. This is a bit like giving a man whos starving to death grape vine seeds. Its a gift that has all the potential in the world to exceed his needs, but so little effort was put into it that itll never get off the ground. Entertainment value is 0, and undeserving of even this 1 star that my review forces me to give.
Summary: who cares if you were involved with the beta ... if you were really that involved you would have told sony home blows and do something different with it. I personally would be ashamed of being part of some sort of closed beta and ended up the way it did. i walked around for 5 minutes ... turned it off and played pain instead. why do i mention pain? its a very very simple game ... and has hours and hours of entertainment ... and its 10 bucks heh.
