LittleBigPlanet renews our faith in Home

We’ve taken our fair share of shots at PlayStation Home, and for good reason. What should’ve been a living, breathing friends list started out as a place where only marketing, micro transactions and sterility came to thrive. Example: Would you like to meet the cast of Street Fighter IV?!

Above: “Can we make this quick? Ken and I have a meeting at 3:30.”

But the LittleBigPlanet locations that’ve just been announced reminds us of all that potential Home once held by flooring us with what’s creatively possible. Seriously, look at this:

Above: WOW!

Above: Hmmm... This is nice, but do you have a sterile mall I can walk around in?

Instead of relying lifeless androids shilling for upcoming games (Although, this was pretty damn cool) Sackboy’s two new Home locations are brining interactive experiences, Such as King's Snap Happy Photo Hunt Challenge, carnival mini-games, custom wallpaper creators, and unlockable rewards you can exchange for LBP gear in the clothing store.

Above: Just wonderful

Play.Create.Share. That’s LBP’s motto, and it’s one Home should really take to heart more often... After all, really they should share the same objective.


SPEAKING OF PLAYSTATION HOME… Head on in there tonight and meet our buddy Veronica Belmont and Audrey Cleo! The ladies of Qore will be hanging out in the PlayStation Home Theater for two hours tonight starting at 6pm (9pm EST) so have your marriage proposals ready!

    Home looks depressingly dull. What a waste of time.

    does anyone else find it kinda funny that the trailder/ad finishes with the sony slogan 'It only does EVERYTHING', just after all these lawsuits about them removing functionality have been filed... the actual Home stuff does look awesome tho

    Wait! can you start a ingame party from home yet for LBP?

    Sony is still trying to get people to use Home? They are either unrealistically optimistic or they just shut themselves off from the internet.

    I may have to buy a ps3 after all.
