Re: Is Pottermore the beginning of Home Segregation?

Apr 5, 2013

I think people always hang out in their favorite spaces. For me it is Edo, Hexalon & Uncharted 3. You usually find the same people in the same spaces. When I visit Siren, Midnight Glade, Casino and other spots, I usually see the same people. I think this is the same thing. Each space has it's own group of people.

 PS Home won't segregate because of Pottermore. I cant see a lot of people sacrificing their virtual individuality just to go to a Harry Potter-themed world.

 

If there was a place that would have segregated PS Home, it wouldve been x7 when that space first came out. And we all know how "popular" x7 is..

Ahh ... yes!!  I guess I didn't realize because I have been a plus member since plus came out and I just thought x7 was just there.  lol  I do like the preview items.

Re: Pottermore is Great! except....

If you enter Pottermore and don't change the outfit, when you leave, you get your previous outfit back, but if you enter Pottermore and start changing your outfit around, then you have to manually change your outfit back when you leave. I basically stopped changing my character's look once I go in, so I don't have to reload my previous outfit again, so basically, I run around in default Potter clothes.

 

I do have an outfit saved for Pottermore, but I wish you could set that once you enter Pottermore, you enter using that outfit instead of the default Potter gear and once you leave, you get your previous outfit back.

I look at Pottermore as its own little world under the Home umbrella no different than Novus Prime or Mercia despite the wardrobe, chat and LMO limitations. But like Jo said I actualy like that they relegate you to Potter only there. It changes you back after so its no big deal. Remember Home in its current incarnation is a games PLATFORM meaning mamy different games exist here. 'Zones' so to speak. Pottermore isnt personally my favorite space (never read the books or saw the movies) but I enjoy the advertisement its giving Home. I met like 20 new users there and alot on the younger side. Some playing with their parents to discover Pottermore. That was really cool because I dont remember the last time a Home event actually brought in a family friendly crowd. I dont feel segregated I feel like we got some extended family now. The type that like magic wands and magical owls (:

It hasn't changed me back anytime I left the space.

Enis - it works like this
- if you change wardrobe while in Pottermore, you will need to manually change once out of Pottermore.
- if you stay in the clothes it automatically puts you in, upon leaving Pottermore you will be returned to your previous outfit Smiley Happy
