    Does anybody actually use Home?

      Its one of those ideas like voice commands that seems really cool in theory but in practice is a thousand times slower than using menus. I did like the E3 booth they setup in there but the only reason I used it was to get a DUST 514 beta key.

      I check it out maybe once every six months, and there seems to be a fair number of people online (many speaking other European languages in the chat).

      And it seems there is new content added to the in-world stores every week, so presumably there are enough people who buy things to make it worth while continuing (in Europe and US regions, at least).

    Yeah I believe one of the big failures of Playstation Home was how sluggish it felt, load times were incredibly long, if they did a bit of a revamp on ps4 that was lightning quick for making parties in games or had some actual benefit like sharing data (screenshots/gameplay movies)with users it may have a use.

    I use playstation home to hang out with my sister and brother who live quite a bit away......Facebook would be easier if I had a facebook thingy....but I kind of like going to the casino or the fun park with them.

    Its odd and not very efficient but with a bit of fault blindness it all works.
