    Default HOME will become the new venue for online GG

    I've been beta trialing Sony's "HOME" and it is just like "Second Life".
    Brilliant for GG's.
    I could see Avalon having a "Club House" real soon...there is a max amount of people that can be members of one "Club House" atm.
    Same amount the amount of bits as the Nintedo --,hope that gets sorted.
    Can't give much away.
    But if it works as it is designed to do ,well SONY is on a very BIG WINNER.

    Sure makes the new XBOX's new updated look truly Toyish and more suited for 5 to 10 year old's.
    HOME is FAR slicker than that.

    One problem is the resolution is defaulted to 720p so some switching will occur if you are using higher video resolutions,just thought I'd mention it.
    Also have 6gb free space on your HD at least otherwise forget it.

    It will become an open Beta trial within the next few days.

    oh yeah can't wait to try that -damn more virtuality lol- . Klax75 mentioned here http://www.wipeoutzone.com/forum/sho...89&postcount=1 he founded some kind of zoner outpost, but as he said it would be great to have an "official" wipeoutzone club house in the near future (when everyone could be involved).

    I'll probably take a long rest after that week-end, but yeah, why not an avalon club house too one day lol

    Meh give me a friends list and the option to invite peeps to a game and then I'm happy. All these added extras just don't do it for me.

    The club house seems cool, but isn't that the same as these forums? Well I will try it, but I'm not holding my breath TBH.

    I like the fact that unlike the forums, you see the person you invite as there Avatar, you can talk, then it will launch the game from within Home itself. So you can all hang out in your club house (a Instance) and then talk WipeOut and invite people and go directly to the games from there. Once you are done it takes you back to Home.

    So far I've set up WarHawk games using Home and launched it. Wasn't even the PSN version, was the disc one.

    As far as I know you can be in more then one club, so WipeOutZone could be one, Avalon could be another.

    On my WipeOut Fans club, I've got about 20-22 people joining. I've had people invite requests every day when I log on.

    Ill be waiting for the fee for the club house before I get excited about it. If it is too much or monthly well... :/ But I've already said that on the other thread.
    One thing's for sure though, I will gladly meet up with you guys for some WipEout games once it is available.

    Well somebody has already taken the AVALON name,I joined that as I thought that was the one Klax75 had started ]I'll find out more about this group and report back] and I joined another group just called Wipeout that has a club house.
    I'll have to ask Klax75 if he managed to launch WOHD from within HOME,some games will launch others not.
    You don't need a club house,you can have a party and launch a game anywhere.
    Already abusive morons there,I don't think they realize that everything they say and do is being monitored,and I can see it getting very crowded when the public beta goes out.

    I've been using the beta for about a week or so. It's cool but it must be a young guy thing. Actually because of a glitch with my account I can't log into it since it says I'm too young but my 10 year old kid can and he loves it. To me it seems like more work than anything.

    I remember a few years ago I got The Sims free through some promotion and I loaded it on my Mac and that was about it. A couple of weeks later my whole family was totally addicted to it. Finally they got me to get on it and set up a person. Way too much trouble. I told them that there's no reason to play the Sims since I live the Sims everyday. My life is a big Sims. I have to worry about all the crap that the game has but it's for real.

    Anyway I digress... I suppose it would be great for a meeting place but I don't really see the advantage. It's just as easy to go to the game and see a game/tournament and join.

    I know what you mean,but I'm not a young pup myself anymore and I still found the whole thing intriguing.
    But it's early days with HOME,who knows where or which direction the whole thing heads.
    Anybody that has just got the beta code is basically only testing the internet loading, I'm under the impression that the long term beta testers have already got most of the known bugs/glitches listed.

    Klax75 I searched for your group and whichever way I spell it it doesn't come up,I'll try again later.

    I'm just wondering if they will wipe the slate clean with all the beta test input and re launch it afresh, or if they will leave what people have made and just add another more definitive patch for final release.

    My club is called WipeOut Fans with the tag Wip3Out. Not sure which you have to search for. Since WipeOutZone isn't my website I didn't feel comfortable using that name. I do have a posting on the on the message boards in the club telling people to visit WipeOutZone.com

    So far I have gotten WarHawk to work with Home with out any trouble. As it goes right now I can't see WOHD yet, but I am assuming since it is beta it will be added. I will try the original Resistance with Home

    Hopefully soon you will be able to customize your club more. So I can put Cold Storage playing in the club, and have the Behind the Scene WipeOut Video going on the video screen would be cool. And have all the team artwork on the walls.

    If the release works like the beta. I only had to download a small program then I had to allocate 3 gigs to Home. But it only downloads things I go to. The Central Plaza it will ask me if I want to download. Same with the Movie Theater, Bowling Alley, Mall. So you can choose not to download them, and the downloads can also be done in the background.
