Is the average user actually gonna buy furniture and such?

25 replies 1 views Edited Jun 22, 2007
I know Sony is just giving everyone options and it is another way to make cash, but who in their right mind would spend money on a virtual couch? Who is gonna buy stuff from Home, i'm just curious. Maybe I'll buy a mini-game or something but not furniture.

Describe average.....

I consider myself over-qulaified average....

It depends on the price. I believe that unique items should be priced to where the 'average' Joe can't afford it.

Then we will have the cry babies who wine that it is too much and that everyone should be able to afford it..... blah, blah, blah

Anyway.....

I read that nothing will be over $10, but I don't have proof with me, so don't quote me on that.

Depending on how things are priced, I may purchase some of the stuff for Home. I am really interested in larger living space, for one thing.

I'll definitely be getting a tv and a CD player/sound system for HOME. Some pool table games or stuff of that nature too. And some sports-related couches just to give it a sporty feel. I'm not going all out, but I figure I'd spend a couple bucks. I think that's what the average person would do IMO. That's provided you're only spending like no more than $5 for any single thing of course.

I don't know why anybody would waste real money on a sofa. A lot of stuff is going to be free, but why would you pay extra just to get a bigger apartment or another sofa in your house? People complain that $600 is too expensive, then they're going to feed Sony with money for "virtual" items.

I think people will purchase larger aparments, that seems like a nice feature, but besides that, I see the cinema being the big money maker in HOME (besides Ads, of course)
