For the new content & rewards on the Acorn Meadow update, does it mean there will also be new ways to level up? It’s a bit tough with just race/photo missions since majority of the challenges have a certain capacity until it maxes out.

@FeddeCampo

Wait, how do you get free items for being active in Home? I visit it at least 3 times a week and the only free stuff I have gotten in months was from the E3 booths. I got nothing by just visiting places.

That is just awesome. I asked for a 3D Dot Game Heroes Costume on the forums official suggestion thread years ago. I’m glad nDreams took up the project by designing the Retro Knight costume. Thanks nDreams. You guys rock!

Playstation Home needs to be taken down and re-built from the ground up. Its just completely inferior to its original vision and that’s about a decade old. Seriously. You should consider it the free to play MMO for Playstation, with classes, guilds and really put some long term development into it. I’m picturing a GTA V like world but more futuristic. You should be able to customize your home, your avatar(using pics for the best likeness), customize the you walk, sit, lay, crouch, dance, ect… and interact with virtually everything. When your in your Home, you can invite friends to play pool, darts, cards, mini golf, volleyball, PS Games, or even listen to our own Music, or watch anything you have including Netflix, Vudu, Hulu, DVD, Blu Ray, etc..

I can’t seem to get an answer for this. Is Home planned to happen on the PS Vita? Even if I could remote play it would be nice.

Can someone please answer?

I just completed all the E3 quests, but I’m not seeing anything for the free month of PS+ or the dynamic themes anywhere. Are those still available, or were they limited time only even though the booth is still open?
