A New Home for HomeCast

HomeCast gets a new home this week. Look for the weekly updates at, and be sure to check out all the other great shows that are part of their lineup, including the GamerIndepth podcast, Replay with Doc and HomeTalk with Mrs. Lochwood.

You'll still be able to enjoy HomeCast directly from your PS3's browser, and you'll still find all the reporting and commentary that you've come to enjoy.

As for this blog, this is pretty much the end of the line, but I will be leaving it up with the archive of older episodes, so that you can hear the horror of HomeCast's evolution from overproduced garble to something that you might want to listen to.

None of this would have happened without the tremendous support from the Home community and the fans, so I want to thank you for making this little podcast a part of your week. If you want to stay in touch, click that Twitter link on the right and Follow me.

See you in PlayStation Home, and on

Since you're online, take a minute to observe Breast Cancer Awareness Month and join the fight to end this disease. Just go to the Ford Warriors in Pink Facebook page and click the "Like" button. Ford will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen for the Cure for every Like they get this month, up to $100,000. Don't be discouraged by the number of likes already on that page; Ford started the month with more than 44,000 fans, so there's still a long way to go to hit the goal.
