Yeah I saw a PS home advert on the TV (kind of) Sony sponsor or used to sponsor Films on Channel 5 I think (might of been itv). Anyway just after the adverts started a little thing came up showing home footage and said "your family movie sponsored by Playstation home" I nearly fell off my chair when I saw this.....

It's had a full length commercial on UK television, and some "sponsored by PlayStation Home" mentions on Sky show intervals. I think there were also posters for PS Home up as well as Xi ads which is sort of viral Home marketing.
I remember them it took me by surprise that Sony actually advertised Home outside of Home because until I saw that ad every add I saw that involved Home was actaully streamed into Home it's self.

I've never seen an ad for Home on TV, or other media for that matter. Kinda glad of it too TBH. I like being in the minority and I'm quite happy for Home to stay under the radar. I mean, sure it'd be nice if more normal people used Home but it's the crazies that keep it fun! How boring would it be if EVERYONE you bumped into was a "normal" person? Half the beauty of Home (to me) is bumping into that normal person once every blue moon and adding them onto my list.
Its been a real struggle finding where the boundaries in this kind of environment lay for Sony, in fact for all these social networks. I think though Ed the cause of all these people who *seem* like social outcasts, is really because of the freedom applications like Home afford the end user. It's just a typical reaction to being able to say, act or do as you please without consequence and some people can't handle it. Put it like this; imagine you had the power to stop time. Now, how long would it take for you to get bored of pulling peoples trousers down in public then un-freezing time and watching the chaos? Maybe a few months, or maybe even never! It's the same thing really, it just depends on the individuals ability to become accustomed to the environment.
Ok, I'm erm, taking this thread for another ride it seems so I'd best just stop now. You'll all be in Home yapping to each other by now anyways so... KTHANKSBAI!!!
I do agree with that.
Although I loved Home getting a mention via E3 I wouldn't want it to be thrown in your face from every media outlet going.
I do like the fact that Sony are seeing Home as something now instead of sweapping it under the rug at gamer events. I do like the fact that Home is now apart of these gaming events but that's where I want the advertising to stop.
The way I see it is if more advertising is pushed on Home then the more hardcore gamers are going to wake up visit it then ask for it to be more gamer focused. Just like what's happened when they gave us New Home Experience.
