Default Latest PS Home update, anyone else crashing?

Downloaded the update and every time I try and log on my PS3 freezes. Anyone else have similar problems?

The fix on the forums is to delete Home entirely and redownload it. Problem with some systems from the updating of the client, but a fresh install seems to work.

Arg that's a lot of downloading. Not a huge deal but a pain.

Yeah I re-downloaded and it worked fine as suggested. The in home game launching makes home a whole lot better ( not that I ever use it much ). Basically you can walk around with a game you'd like to play above your head like "Tekken Dark Reserection Online 1 of 2"... then someone see's it and can join up with you. Your character then stays in Home.

Thats what I was guessing one would do to fix it. I had the same problem. I wanna try the game launching to see if it really keeps us together in games that don't expressly support it (ala COD4, Resistance: Fall of Man, etc).

Ehh, Home is a neat thing to just kinda explore every once in awhile. The mini-games (well a few of them) are neat and mildly entertaining. That being said, it's not really worth logging into more than a couple times a week, if even. It just depends on who you are.

No matter how you slice it, where Microsoft failed to ignite a "social gaming revolution" with the NXE, Sony has also failed to do the same with Home. I imagine it's because the people that would be all over these already have a Wii.

Home has LOTS of potential, but it's simply not being realized.

Wait...people actually log into and use Home?

Takes all kinds...

EDIT: Ha, just noticed grasp's post or else I would have just ditto'd him. In any event, I'd still like to express my surprise that people log into what is essentially a big advertisement with load screens and lame mini-games

According to the IGN anti PS3 thread, about 33% of users who have a PS3 use home. So its much higher % of people then I ever would have guessed.
