    This is a PlayStation Home first! The first space to be released as a Clubhouse as well as a personal space—so you have options for what you prefer.

Absolutely LOVE the fact that those 3 new apartments being available as clubhouses, I will be buying all three when they release! The look absolutely fantastic! Though Hillside could be bigger, and will we be able to walk onto the bridge at Plum Tree Pavilion?

So if I am reading right, there will be 4 open ‘houses’ this coming weekly update, right? If so, does that mean the Mount Olympus and Oak Retreat will go away this Wednesday maintenance?

And The French Chateau will go straight to the Real Estate store (no open house)?


    Locust_Star's Avatar

     

    + GlassWalls on February 27th, 2012 at 3:02 pm said:

    This is correct. Just to clarify, here’s what will be available to check out as open houses:

    Oak Retreat,
    Frozen Peak Palace,
    French Chateau,
    Mount Olympus.

    The three new personal spaces/Clubhouses (Moon Forest, Plum Tree Pavilion, Hillside) will not be available at this time as open houses.

    The French Chateau will become available for purchase this week. The Frozen Peak Palace is a Home first of sorts—a space we’re releasing as an open house first, specifically seeking feedback before we release it in its final form. We like it a lot, but felt it needed community input before releasing it. Look for my Poll in the Home forums on Wednesday covering it.

    WHEW! Lots of private spaces to check out. Enjoy!

Firstable i want to ask, why is it that when someone gets BAN for 7 days , or a month , and that person doesnt get in trouble anymore, lets say for a whole year, why isnt His or Her PSN record CLEAR of all past Ban History. As a member i think is not Fair that many people LOSE all the money they have put into their accounts due to past History. We ALL have bad days , and people in Home, even though they dont say a bad word, they act like total tools, and sometimes you forget you cant say a bad word, and just so happens a MOD is there to Ban you, for a normal Human Reaction . Just like in real life, when you do something lightly bad , after certain time you have the chance to clean your record, Why PSN does not implement this for US , instead of being 1 sided .
The Ban Rules need to change, to give us the chance to have our PSN History CLEAN , after a certain time we Do Not get in Trouble .
Please, show a sign of good Faith towards your Members.

As i Mention before, 1 member i know got banned for a whole month for something someone else Provoked, my friend totally forgot about the rules and said 1, only 1 bad word that started with the letter A, and he was Banned, while the other party that started the whole thing got a jail free card.
Change the BAN Rules, it needs to be updated, accordingly .
Now onto the Wardrobe Wars, i tried it and its pointless, People take pictures of themselves , with clothes that have nothing to do with the Theme of the Day, and then, they go around voting the lowest on people that DO have theme of the day garments, so you tell me , whats the point ?

+ Longshanks367 on February 27th, 2012 at 2:08 pm said:

Sorry L_S the wardrobe war game is already a fail. Families are controlling the winners. Most people have given up on it.

Question; Moon forest and Plum tree Can you walk in the woods or over that bridge? Having park like areas where we can walk around would be a very good idea. thanks…

    + GlassWalls on February 27th, 2012 at 3:17 pm said:

    The voting mechanism is designed to offer everyone a slew of random choices to vote on, and there are thousands and thousands of photos to vote from already. My point is, no one controls it, no matter what they might say. ;-)

    Just as a reminder, every time you successfully submit a new photo in Wardrobe Wars, either as a voter or a model, you get one more chance to earn a trip to E3! For more information: http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/4669473 (plus Locust_Star and I will get to meet the lucky winners!)

Locust_Star or Glasswalls, can you tell us the price of how much them new Iron Fusion costumes will be? I’ve looked on Lockwood Publishing Facebook page and website. Nothing is there to display the price. Overall I love the Home update this week – Thanks fellas. Also can you tell me the price of the new Obsidian Bladewalker, as I already have the Obsidian Pilot outfit and totally love the animation and special remotes I would like to add this one to my wardrobe also. Thanks once again – KamiKaze.

I have no idea how hard this is for the Development team but , i went to the Hidden Oak Retreat , i tried the Long Lounge Chair, hoping i would be able to LAY DOWN , just like in the Desert Clubhouse one and it was dissapointing to only be able to sit sideways looking at the back of the person sitting on the next chair , i mean why not just put a normal chair, instead of a lounger you cant Lay Down .

Also why the heck isn’t it remote play? It’s your property, you can turn on remote play really easily for Home.

So in short I love my Vita and I like Home and I think it is stupid I don’t have access to Home on my Vita.

@ erickafollie I agree with your A word comment like its been 10 months you think they would get over it. But then again it all depends how your friend phrased it. Did he/she say it as a threat say like ” If you dont shut your mouth right now im gunna go Anonymous on your account and you wont be on SEN for a year” ? Because if so that’s just a little much but if the A word wasn’t made out as a threat then ya that’s complete malarky.

Oh dear hate to be negative but what a complete and utter fail wardrobe wars is,a complete waste of everyones time that participates,initially i thought what a brilliant idea but i should have known what to expect as already mentioned no one followed the sports theme,you just vote yourself a 10 then vote everyone else down,and it seems that the last pesron in before voting closes gives themselves a 10 and lo n behold next day thay are announced as the winner.previous winners for sports theme,guy in a suit,a clown,a leg etc etc,considering the effort put in by the devs just a liitle more thought was needed,anyways rant over,oh and part of the reason i believe home is now on a downward spiral is that its way to big,go visit a space like pier park and you will be lucky to find 3 other users there same with most other spaces too.

@burnlife308, The whole thing happen like this, my friend and i went to the Lockwood showcase during the Valentines Day week, you were to get 5 Free Rewards each day, and 1 of them consisted of you seating on an specific chair and the reward would pop, We got there and there was some guy sitting on the chair, we waiting for 2 mins, and my friend asked him if he could PLEASE get up so he can sit and get the reward, the guy said NO, my friend told him , let me sit for 5 seconds then you can have the chair all to yourself, and the guy said, the reward is not here anymore, so why should i ? my friend said, well, let me sit just to check , and the guy said NO, im here on a date with some guy that was sitting across the table, my friend got fed up and said, What an A hole and walked away P.O at the guy that wont let anybody sit to get the reward, and of course, MODS are never there when you need them.

But oh so quick to Ban you, and let you feeling like they are being 1 sided and not looking at the whole incident .
Both Parties were at fault, each should of gotten Ban , not just my friend , specially not for a whole month .
And now i came to find out that your Ban history never dissapears, it stays there forever, which is totally and utterly ridiculous, considering in real life you have the chance to clean your records, after a certain time you dont get in trouble , but here, something that its made up and virtual , it stays with you forever, just waiting for you to say the wrong thing, to Ban you and take all the money you have put into your account.
I understand PSN wants to “protect ” children, but the reality is 90 percent of people that are Home Members are in their late Teens, 20`s , 30`s 40`s even 50`s . Children are not running to the store and getting PSN cards to pay for all the stuff WE buy , money that at one point or another goes into their pockets.

+ erickafollie on February 28th, 2012 at 8:29 am said:

The Ban Rules Must change and they should be more open minded and understand that as a human being, you have human reactions, and sometimes people drive you over the edge , no matter how polite or well behave you try to be .
They should implement the option to delete or erase your BAN History after a certain time you dont get in trouble , not have it hanging on you forever , that is just ridiculous.
Just like they want us to to shop and buy more and more stuff they come out with every single week , i want them to be more flexible and make us believe they are not the money hungry people , a lot of Home members think they are, Change the Ban Rules .

Thank you .

I went to the Frozen Peak Palace, and it looks more like a Ghost castle, it Sadly reminds me of LeChuck`s Pirate Ship , whoever created that Frozen castle should go back and make the castle out of stone, real looking stone but frost and snow in the inside ( make the roof snow all over the castle ) , right now the castle looks Too Literal .
