$7.50 for an outfit you want and then another $7.50 for an outfit you dont want. HUZZAH!


I know, but it's best to think of the other $7.50 being spent for permanent X7 access and all benefits along with it.

Actually one is 7.50 and the other is 7.49 :-P Think of the penny saved as the bundle discount even though they don't sell these items individually lol.

Okay so today I was looking in the exlusives store for the first time. I then saw one diamond suit and one gold suit for $15 each. Now I'm not trying to start a war here but don't you think at the least that's a little overpriced? Believe me I'll buy virtual items for $0.99 or maybe up to $7. But never 15. Leave your thoughts below on what you think is overpriced or your opinion on  prices for items.


Some item's are other's not so much.

There's always people with more money than sense. While the Exclusives are overpriced and tacky, they make useful "I'm stupid and unloved" signs. If you happen to come across one, smirk and keep walking.

 

I feel worse for the schmucks who paid $50 to play No Man's Land or Home Tycoon.

 

 

 

 

 


If you're having fun on Home that doesn't make you a schmuck, now wasting  $300 a month on cigarettes or drugs, that's a schmuck - anyway if people have disposable income to spend on Home, you shouldn't feel (worse) for anyone who can blow $200 or more a month on Home, because obviously they aren't hurting in this economy.

I notice that anything on Home that is made of gold or diamonds costs a huge amount of money. But they're only textures to me. Are they trying to make Home feel like real life by having everything made of gold or diamonds outragously expensive? Is it so some wannbe's on there can feel like they're really rich? You'll never catch me buying that crap. Although I have considered buying a golden toilet.  Man LOL

In my opinion yes items are over priced, as well as the fact that Home never fixes any issues from broken items and all the other issues that have been stated here in these forums time and time and time again! From the bugs to the lack of customer service for Home I deleted it! Best decision I ever made!

Pricing is escalating and so is the amount of content. We see it with many clothing separates now at 1.49 instead of .99. Apartments are coming in bundles and are now often closer to 6.99 when sold separately.

 

Purchasing of items in Exclusives has been discussed to death. Those who enjoy the diamond suits and more are certainly entitled to spend their money as they see fit. There is certainly a market for them given they are very common in world so they are selling. 

 

X7 does have value given all the bundles sold there now for a dollar and they are starting to have free exclusive items that are pretty interesting.

Overpriced! Those pantherbots definitely are....I won't spend more than $5 for a single item.
