So. When can we expect the population to keep people from harassing girls on Home? This has been OUT OF HAND FOR TOO LONG. If my friend spends a ton of money on items on Home, she gets tons of kiddies going after her with pickup lines and then profanity and insults when she says “no, I don’t date online.” Can we discuss what can be done better? Can we see a section of Home where you have to be at least 18 to enter? (or at least you have to be mature about what Home is really about- NOT A DATING SIM.)

Last I know the Casino was supposed to be free and part of the welcome back package. Is it still planned to be free?

Eh, I’ll pass on using the Dead Island shirts, though that pre-order bonus sounds juicy. Looks like I might be doing the runabout again.

That Frogger, stuff, though… I don’t really care for the mascot’s look (I only really know the game from its Intellivision incarnation), but the T-shirts with the dynamic arcade screen on the back and the companion… Am tempted. These aren’t limited-time-only, are they? Might grab the companion before long… How ’bout a blocky retro companion? Kinda like the mascots that float around in Game Room (X360/GFW), though hopefully more than a flat arrangement of blocks, eh?

Oh, and I know it’s not related to the stuff in this post, but I’ve read that IREM is gonna be taking most of their stuff down from the PSN. Will the North American Irem Square, Seaside of Memories, and Gathering Place for Explorers be swept in the purge, or can they be salvaged, along with their related stores/items?

I’ve been busting but to grab everything in the eventuality, and, aside from non-free items, I’m down to one ring (I assume sapphire) for my own person, a handful of rings for my sister, and…well, the Square and Gathering Place are covered for my other sister and to-be bro-in-law, though they’ve hardly ever used Home.

@hollywoodceleb

Stop with the marketing propaganda already, you’ve already been told that your propaganda isn’t beleived. Your marketing hyperbole isn’t wanted or needed. The person who is fundamentally clueless here is YOU. glass & locust put in positively no effort into their jobs at all and its been showing for a very long time. The new items which are typically overpriced and of low quality (ie. very buggy for the most part) are designed by other developers not glass & locust, they have no real part in new items showing up in home. They’ve also failed at thier jobs in so many other ways its impossible to list all of them in the short comments here.

+ PirateHarlock on August 4th, 2011 at 9:50 am said:

(continued) The main issues are 1 – the absurd number of bugs that show up weekly on home and nearly all of them go ignored even after being reported many many times. 2 – the unbelievable amount number of violations of homes rules that occur on a daily basis and its not limited to the sickening sexual harassment of women & children on home. There has been no enforcement of the psn rules or state & federal cybercrime laws in over a year & a half, nor has there been any mods present in that time, thats right NONE. When Glass does make an appearance its only at a promotional event and even then he ignores even the worst infractions taking place right in front of him. For you to defend the incompetent mismangement of home is laughably absurd.

I should point out what many others have been reporting a long time, even in this weeks comments. the missing itmes people paid for but havent recieved. This problem has been going on a very long time and on a massive scale. Its yet one more problem that needs to be fixed pronto. It shouldn’t take a good criminal lawyer to point out that something payed for online and not delivered or refunded can lead to wire fraud charges. It wouldnt take a genius to show a clear & concise pattern either. With sonys previous track record and the current number of massive lawsuits against them ongoing, another one along with criminal charges wouldn’t be a smart move for sony as a whole, nor for the people currently working for them.

WHAT! MISSING purchased items? Really? I better not have anything missing! And I have to say I was really disappointed with the Dead Island stuff today. From the picture above, I thought, as one would, that the 4 reward items would be the 4 zombies in the pic. Y’know, costumes. But all it turned out to be was t-shirts! Biggest letdown EVER! I was all excited for nothing.

Another thing, the mechsuits are ridiculously overpriced! REALLy, 9.99?! It`s especially unfair when some people were able to buy it for 2.99 >:( Why the HELL are you makin the rest of us spend over half our $20 cards on one flamin item when others can get it for a couple of dollars? Change the price back, please!

I used to love Home, but now it`s all about money and encouraging guys to harrass girls. I`m tired of being asked out online by complete strangers and their crude comments, then getting trashed by them when I say no, and nothing gets done about these guys.

I don’t like how home is getting. all you do is make money. i miss the old days when we get free stuff all the time. but now if you want free stuff you have to pay for something to get it now. I stopped putting money on home now because of this. unless you change it up a bit ill start paying for stuff again.

For all the whiners and complainers, no one’s holding you at gunpoint to make purchases much less use Playstation Home. If you don’t like it, constructive criticism helps in some cases. But if you feel that you got “suckered” into doing anything in Home, then go look in a mirror and blame the person looking back at you. I was in the next to last closed Beta, and I knew where the whole thing was going and for anyone else to complain that Home is becoming more and more of a promotion gimmick clearly doesn’t know the nature of the business. Because that’s what this is: a business. Geez.

Home….I’m seriously loosing interest. It could have been so much more instead things stay broken for months and years. How about fixing what people have paid for. I have received nothing for home as part of PlayStation plus. I’ve spent most likely thousands of dollars in home in hope it would be what it once was supposed to be. My waterfall terrace is still broken. Clubs have never been added too I can’t even get excited about new active items because I have to remove other ones in order to place new ones. The Frogger stuff looks cool but I think I’m about done with Home. Wish I could sell some of my stuff back even at half of what I paid.

I got two of the mechjets hoping they would do different things as an incentive to buy them all. Sadly, they all do the same thing so I wasted a little bit on them.
