Goodbye PlayStation Home

Well, it has been a while since my last post. Life enhancements. Enriching experiences. Continuing this trend with the deletion of the PlayStation Home community site and associated files from my PlayStation 3. My physical memory is liberated and my emotional/mental memory does not have much to say about PS Home. Interactions were minimal. Start a conversation. Minimal response. Commercialism. Unnecessary complexity and increasingly useless content. It's like they tried for the Sims (a much better experience) and took all the fun out of it and replaced it with real money. I can watch game previews, movie previews, mini games, etc. in several other media. Eventually PS home never gave me a reason to come back.

My ultimate decision was based on freeing memory from my PS3, but also just not getting much back from the time I put into this experience. Let's start a ROM (return on media) and break down how much we are getting from specific media experiences. Music and movies still rule the roost in my mind. Tal and Acacia are a recent music discovery (thanks to my wife) and the film Courageous (about 2 hours and 15 minutes) did more for me personally than my entire PlayStation Home experience (14+ hours total since I installed it).

PlayStation relaunching Home...I won't even be at the launch pad.
