Checked out the Gryffindor common room. It's kind of small and not really much to do in it (possibly same as other house Dormitory rooms?). The Charms class Levitation game is ok but I always sort of hated (six axis) motion control(s) gaming so I stopped playing after Lv...6 or 7 i think.

 

 

All in all, it's more like a 2/5 for me Smiley Sad

Im better off playing my old Harry Potter Sorcerer's Stone PS1 game Smiley Wink

The Flying Grayson, Nightwing, Robin, They were about more than fight moves. They were about inspiration, comfort, trust, family. I gave that up to become a spy. a Spider man; A Tsuchigumo. I have changed.

Update so far Regarding the personal space apartment $6.49: 

You can't change outfit but Pottermore clothing line ( Ranging from $0.99 & up  or default clothing you get when you arrive at Pottermore)

You can't use any other furniture but Pottermore furniture line ( at $7.99 each pack ) I believe there is 4 packs available.

You can't use your Observer camera,BBC camera or Loot camera.

You can't use group chat Only local chat.

The place is a duplex which inside is a much smaller knock off of the Bramblenook Farm personal space from Juggernaut without having access to the outside & all the activities to do


Yikes, thanks for the heads up. Sounds more like a storefront than a proper personal space you can freely decorate. Since you have to buy their furniture anyway, they probably should have made it a reward for stuff you do in the public spaces.

I don't like to use this term but it really applies in this situation... OMG!

 

This is totally ridiculous.  The restrictions are bad enough in the public spaces, but to have the same restrictions for a personal space is asinine.  Do they even warn propective buyers of these restrictions?  If not, I'm guessing Sony is going to have a bunch of very angry customers demanding their money back.

It's nice for the fans of the movies and books but they aren't really trying to expand beyond that it appears. I suspect there are many even hardcore fans who aren't happy about the personal space with it's many restrictions.

 

I thought the space looked good from the video but I don't even need to see it now to know I'm no longer interested. 

 

They've put a lot of development time into these spaces. Hopefully for those who care these won't suffer the same fate as The Magic The Gathering.

No, people just crave for anything that is 'new'.  For the last month the Pottermore spaces have been practically empty, and I predict in a few weeks the same will be said for these 'new' Pottermore spaces.

 

If they did not have so many restrictions and the games had a much better incentive for playing than just collecting cards, and those games actually worked most of the time - then these spaces would likely be a lot more popular.

Yea I'm on a HP forum that's pretty much been the same as of late too Smiley Sad.

 

As for the restrictions, they seem to be pretty rediculous -- how's anyone supposed to do anything if a lot of it costs money to do? Heck I'd be without a place to stay -- at least for now Smiley LOL. Wish that they had more to do in terms of mini games and that kind of thing.
