E3 2009: HOME Gets Picture Frames Feature
The highly touted promise of picture frames in Home has finally come to fruition, but at a price...
Yes, you can now display pictures from your PS3 HDD, in the form of picture frames, in your personal spaces in Home.
The only downside is that there are no starter frames whatsoever, so you must drop $2.99 for the initially released frame in the Home Mall.
Here are a few limits to consider as well, regarding the amount of frames which can be used in each personal space:
Harbor Studio - 4 Frames Max
Summer House - 2 Frames Max (Why? I have no idea.)
Lakeside Cabin - 6 Frames Max
Chamber Apartment - 12 Frames Max
Loot StageSet - 0 (!?)
Also, for some odd reason, this feature was not implemented into the club system, at least not yet, so you're confined to only using them in your personal spaces. Guess that club logo will have to lay low for awhile, eh?.
Overall it's good to see this feature finally hit Home, but c'mon Sony, you could have at least gotten us started with a freebie frame or something because $2.99 is a steep price to pay for a static image that few people will probably end up seeing.
