Wow, I guess I'm alone or in limited company in my appriciation of Home. I won't deny that the complaints are many and tightly wounded but I guess I'm all too eager to look beyond all of that, hopefully it'll improve that people with genuine concerns will grow to like it.
In the mean time it means I have less people to contend with when trying all the stuff that's there.
Not entirely sure why I'm willing to overlook the teething problems but I guess it's down to two things.
1: I'm used to people saying Sony promises Big but delivers nothing/little, with that in mind, I NEVER listen to their hype instead judge for myself and from what I've seen, Sony aren't Software experts. Again folks on this site will remind you constantly that XBL>>>>>PSN simply because XBL is like spreading butter on a crumpet and PSN is trying to chew nails. Assume for one moment that's 100% true, why am I willing to accept this crap on my plate? Well I think it's because I've yet to accept the jump from ps2 to HD.
It just seems to me that people are a little too spoilt these days that they expect Crysis beaters (in terms of graphics) in every single game (I still can't understand why people ragged on MAG but that's another story.) As a result they expect everything to be inch perfect straight out of the bag but as this is a new venture...it won't be the case.
2: Which brings me to my next point, Home is unlike anything on any console EVER as a result, it's venturing into uncharted waters so why everyone is expecting perfection from the word go is beyond me.
Sony once again have attempted something much bigger than they can handle and once again its bitting them in the ass, however that doesn't mean it shouldn't be commended for what it's attempting.
I know this won't help matters but I believe in a year's time, Home will be a lot closer to what Sony is imagining, I use the difference of November last year and today as a point of reference.
Basically Today's Home>>>>>>>>>>November
Almost everyone agrees EU home is the worse of the bunch but yet I counter by saying, compared to November, this is perfection.
I know the "Have patience" line is worn out but I still think it holds true, give Sony enough time (i.e a century :D) and they will get there in the end.
