I'm not a huge fan of the direction Sony has been taking Home, but I popped in last night for an event and did some time in the joint. Sony needs to make Home more about gaming and less about turning it into a virtual shopping mall. It seems like they don't have enough people working on and money invested in this project. Sony seems to forget about some of their projects and systems like the PSP they recently rediscovered after the iphone gaming thing took off. The Buzz! Tomato Challenge Makes Its Way Into PlayStation Home
I tried my hand at the UK Buzz Event Quiz Area. The trick is you have to not miss 10 questions in a row
to win the prize. I ended up doing it quite a few times before I got 10 right answers in a row.
Earlier I did the U.S. Buzz home space and won a T-shirt for winning a round. It's probably one of the more impressive uses of the home space. They register your location and keep score in the event and switch camera angles to the winnners of each question.
I finished up in Japan at the Irem Bikini Beach. It's an interesting use of
the space, but so far none of the Irem areas have come to the U.S. or theEU.
