I remember not getting the point the first time I saw, downloaded, and installed Home. I didn't have any friends that played, so I looked around a while. Nobody spoke to me. I deleted it and went back to my games. 6 months later I reinstalled it to see what had changed. Deleted it again afterwards. It was not until I bought a Playstation with a larger hard drive that I left it on, and so the Icon would occationally draw me in to look around. Once I attended an E3 event, I got hooked on hunting the free rewards, and I played the Demo of Mercia (a role playing game! My favorite!) That's when I was hooked. I've been here almost every day since then, like that friend you can't remember who invited over, but he just won't leave.
Speaking of which...ahem...if you sleep on my couch at Hollywood Hills another week or so, I really am going to have to charge you rent Julian. The maid bills alone are starting to add up and well, she asked to file some sort of complaint.

lol The first time I came on home was like the first episode of lost. We all crash landed in CP. People walking around disoriented, others standing around just watching, diff groups were sitting in circles around cp just chatting. I looked for my friends, sat down, and started chatting. The rest is history.

LOL @ Jo - I bet you did!
My first day at Home...
Well, I had been looking forward to Home for a LONG time! I was so excited when I got in! As excited as I was to actually see Home, I ended up spending almost 2 hours mucking about with my Avi's appearance! lol When I finally got in, I was surprised to see that there were no NPCs, and that there was a real person behind every face. I was shy and didn't want to appear stupid by asking too many questions. So, I quietly watched, & explored every area I could find. I really liked the arcade games in the Bowling Alley (back when you had to wait for one to be open because everyone was trying to play)! I didn't even decorate my Harbor Studio until the next day!
I can't even remember when/how I got them, but I remember I wore the Star sunglasses ALL the time back then. I was also fond of the DigDug shorts.
I didn't really talk much to anyone, until Xi came out. - Wow, so much has changed, now you can't shut me up!

late beta, downloaded the 77 MB and loaded up a funny tile screen that clicked. you member!
Getting to the plaza and seeing the holographic "Home arch'' and walking around seeing the big screen across a cement pond that reminded me of Sea World. We had "open'' mics so Everyone talked to everyone. Wasn't long after that I was Rick Rolled We lost open mics a few days later to ''technical issues'' and here we are.
I remember a small area near that had a crude dance area and I remember the first time selecting a casual dance.
Funny now thinking back because of all the changes and friends made along the way. Through good and some bad I wouldn't have had it any other way.

I remember getting SUPER mad at the character design part so I told myself I'll invest the hours necessary after I decide if its worth it. So I wandered into the pool hall all noobed up, played ice breaker and while I was playing some dude came up to me and told me I was ugly... standing there until I got out of game and read it. i said to myself "well this game is full of jerks" so I turned it off and didn't touch it again until the welcome back package came out almost a year later. At that time I was crammed in a small house between moves, all surrounded by boxes. I had more stuff on ps home than unpacked at that moment,
so fiddling with the character design was much more worth my time. And I found out not everybody was so bad.
That's right. I don't think many of us would still be here if it wasnt for a few people we met early on. I know that's certainly the case for me and why I continue on Home today.

Everything has a beginning.
looking for your first day experiences in PlayStation Home. What do you remember about your first day in Home. Thoughts, impressions.
I will chime in a bit later.
Well, I remember exploring all of the Public Spaces and finding the stores. I always liked Central Plaza becuase it was a fun place to relax.
