Hi Carla, I guess you get to update this Interactives thread with the US region release of Pool and Darts and Trigger Happy-In-A-Box. Whoo!

 

Also, would it be possible to add more info on the following?

 

* Differences between the portable Pool tables and the ones in the Bowling Alley.

 

* The huge wooden 50's type "Mars Attacks" billboard you get with the Activate8 UFO.

 

* Are there any current functionality issues affecting the Loot MIB?

 

Thanks again Carla, you rock

Since I doubt an active item limit increase is forthcoming, what would really be helpful would be finding out which precise items cause an active item limit overload.

 

Currently when I place a dart game in a personal space and try to add another active item, like the UFO cow-snatcher, I'm told I'm over the limit.

 

After removing all lights and anything that has any movement in its design that might be construed as being active (Bioshock stuff, the "known" items, etc), I still am told I cannot have more than two items.

 

Ok. But please, those truly in the know (Sony?!), please give us an exact list of what items constitute active items.

 

Thank you.
