These items seem cool and I like the retro diner a lot. I’m having a hard time buying anything else in home. here are some issues I have.

1.) not enough connectivity with the overall PS3 experience( the Killzone3 preorder was a step in the right direction) some games give thing in home with trophies more of those would be nice and in game items for in Home games. And that trophy room would be a good start.
2.) A better inventory solution. The storage is a nice idea but maybe we could get descriptions of merchandise or separate rewards from purchases.
3.) A buy back or credit program for things you may want to sell back in home. I for one was Kind of disappointed in a few spaces I bought that I wish I could sell back or get credit toward a new space instead. (the Mansion for just an example was sold as a connected space but really was 5 different spaces.)
4.) something at all for Clubhouses its been years ……
5.) some type of personal media playback in personal spaces music movies netflix even an internet radio option.
6.) some type of in home issue and status space for error status and problems.

what does the updated software do? 1.52. Also when will we be able to fit more in our personal spaces 2 active items is sort of ridiculous now and 50 total has too low for even longer. I know this isn’t the most optimal place to voice the issue but you are trying to sell items to us. If I can’t put but 2 active items per space for the foreseeable future there is little reason to buy any more of those.

I agree, I only buy new items or active items when they will replace currently in-use items. I’m also more careful due to the complete lack of consideration for broken space “Waterfall terrace”.

Go read the forum on that. Been broke for some since 2009. Just use the link provided by Glasswalls to confirm my statement.

How about putting some Trophies in HOME?? I think that would make more visited :D Instead of having trophies like (gold, silver, bronze) you can have gem trophies like ruby, emerald, diamond XD.
