;^) Of course, I'm not saying it's terribly likely....
Getting rid of old items will never happen as GM said they are tied to your account forever. Also, you bid in this auction (in increments of 1 lkwd token) not sell. There are a few items in that area (fountain for example) that will probably be the first theyll auction off. This is a lkwd showcase, hence new items of theirs to showcase. Im betting they will auction off different colorways of exisiting lkwd products.
Like the Trap O Matic rewards??......................
If that is the plan, to auction items, I can say with 100 percent certainty that I will never win one.
Yup. You and me both. I bet people will throw $20 at $0.99 items and crazy stuff like that.
Add me to that group of not winning a bid
I think the items being auctioned will probably be one of a kind original designs.
Anyway it kind of has me excited to see whats going to happen.
I just had a chat with Steve at Lockwood and the first auction will be a dinner date with Joanna on the Dream Yacht... Guess they forgot to tell Jo first.
I just added a large sum to my PSN wallet just in case... Next step, convert it to Lockwood tokens.

"Like it never happened"
- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -
Auction in Home? That's just silly.
There is two ways to this. SCEA wants us (users who actually spend money into home) bid on new rare items, OR items that are marked down, but that wouldn't make sense since you would be paying more in the long run because it's been in a store forever.
If it's limited time only items, SCE might just screw us over again. Remember those "limited time only" items during E3? I don't think I need to go into that for regular members on here to know what I'm talking about. They can always bring them back and you would feel foolish months later thinking it was limited time only.
Anyways, just another way for Home marketing to get money from us. Well, not me.
I'd wager that it's going to be a LKWD Token auction, as that way the money is already in the system for LKWD currency.
Limited-time, special discount(at first bid compared to usual price), unique copies of items(gold anyone? -.-), etc. of their products will probably be put up with token bids.
Basically... a money-grabbing tactic, unless the items are limited-time unique, it'll mostly be a chance to get a lil extra money for the least effort... like making a 256token item get boosted to double because it's red instead of blue, and someone REALLY wants it enough to bid $10 in tokens on it. :/
Granted, this is a guess, I can HOPE it's Sodium Credit or other freemium points system that even the noobs can bid on to get some nice gear, but I'm not holding my breath for any auction system in this bloated price system.
I don't budlist-add on forums, and blank PSN requests get ignored!
Missing Rewards -over a year old, still never fixed! 3-4 months worth of items still MIA.
I'm guessing that the auction will work like this.
There will either be an item created by LKWD were you'll have to bid using Gift Machine tokens. The auction will probably end in 24 hours or end on next weeks update. The person with the most bids gets the item. But the item will only be an item you won't be able to get anymore.
That is how I see it.
