What is a Playstation 3 or PS Home?

Sony has finally updated the Playstation Home network to allow users to use their ingame camera device. They also added more spaces for you to visit along with more payware content such as Homes, avatar wears, shrink potion, and etc.

How do I use the ingame camera?

If you have PS home you can simply press “Start” – “Personal options” – “My Inventory” – “My Camera” – Activate”, and you will then gain access to take images that will save to your Playstation 3’s hard drive.

How do you upload images?

Hook up a USB device to your Playstation 3 and copy them over (individually or in bulk)  from the photo’s section to your USB device.

What is that mecha in that image?

My guess is that its from the Lost Planet 2 co-op demo that is able to be found on the Playstation 3 Central Plaza. Never played it so that is why I gave a vague answer :p.

(If the images seem low res’ then that maybe from the two demos I was downloading. Entering each space in a random order.)

The Masked Red Samurai :D. I believe I was the first one on the US servers to wear both the Samurai suit and the mask before I started seeing three appear a few weeks after. How I bloody hate copycats. I used the spare change I had left from the $50 Cad prepaid card after I acquired the Fate/Unlimited Codes (PSP) and the two add-ons for Valkyria Chronicles (PS3). I wouldn’t buy ingame content otherwise…..

Animated PSP Go! Don’t know why but Sony disabled the camera to capture videos. Silly Sony, tricks are for kids ^_^.

And Uncharted 2 freebies. Fat Princess’s throne chair can be barely seen on top right.

Red Bulls Space
My current flight record: 0:51:32

Theres no waiting in line for this. Simply walk around until you see the Red Bull’s tag on the bottom and play, just weave through people as they tend to get in the way.

This one is a bit weird but welcoming. To the left of the first image is where the mini-games are held (old text based one and some old Nes type games). To the right of the image are net terminals where you can surf the web inside Home. Like I said, weird. This reminds me of some sci-fi Anime/Movie where the people are 100% slaves of society.

I like how there are new spaces coming onto the Home space.  I dislike how small some of them are or how they lack in some way. I hope they add some kind of Gundam material as I seen them in the Japanese space, me wants! Actually, I want the Gundam home space that the Japanese have already…..

My favorite spaces are:
– Red Bulls racing (Love the flying in it)
– Namco/Bandai
– Uncharted 2 (It actually looks like a village, expand it!)
– EA’s Racing complex (Expand it, it has potential)

From the Japanese Home (though my account has perished now):
– Central Plaza (This is far better then the American/Canadian Central. Have it hook up or something.)

And I hate what Sony did with the Picture frames. $2 for a frame? Greedy (I knowits cheap but I dislike buying digital items). Thats the only thing I dislike Sony for doing as I wanted to hang some images up on my Personal home space. Whoever had that idea needs to be hit with a frying pan once each day until that gets turned into a free choice. :D. Well, Guess this will conclude part 1 as 55 images are overkill. I’ll keep it to 20-30 in the future parts.

Thanks for reading/viewing and hope you enjoyed this. If you have the Japanese or European space do let me know how they look like at this point. Do share, if you have the ingame camera as well.
