'Windfall 2014'

^_^ like it?

I bought some tokens and sent my other avatars things from the machines, including sending the Vip room to UK, I was debating that one for a while. I also have tokens that I am holding because I owe 64 tokens to a friend( he won a private contest) and I owe another friend a christmas gift


Thanks Asuka424 for the Signature

Like many I believe SONY should swallow the cost of the mistake they made & most likely we will keep the places that we got for free   

I use to work in retail & if a product was wrongly priced we still honored it.

If not it's consider as a false advertisement !

I even told some costumers to enjoy our mistakes

This error has increased the traffic flow in all of Lockwoods spaces. It's good to see too, as i'm a "fan" Heart

It's good for business so if the Home staff play this smart, they'll eat the cost and compensate Lockwood. But at the same time, we should be prepared for the well known fact that the words Home staff and smart are very rarely uttered in the same sentence.

Well, I noticed while on Home they re-added the spaces and Tab with the 50% off promotion.  I didn't see it mentioned on here so I figured I post and let people know its back with the prices adjusted.

I do not think those who got the free stuff from Sony should be punished since the items said "free" and if they got it they should be able to keep it.

No one will be punished if the spaces were taken away. Everything will be back to what it was before.

 

But we will have had time to "test drive" the spaces and decide if we would like to buy them this time.

 

And we shouldn't feel bad if the spaces were removed. After all, we didn't buy them or earn them, and they weren't ours in the first place.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

We didn't screw up and make them free either.

Bottom line, from a business point of view, they should just let it ride. If they do not it could be considered false advertisement wether it was a accident or not, and could also ruin a couple if not more relationships between customers and Sony. Most of the people who got them for free would never have bought them if they were not free, so in the long run they lost nothing. Most of the people who would not have bought the spaces could end up purchasing some of the added features tho because they are a lot cheaper. Taking them away will not only discourage people from buying them back but it will also void their reason to buy the additional content from within the space.

Business 101, did anyone there ever take that class? Time will tell.

Actually, the spaces became yours as soon as you hit confirm whatever the price was.

Tranny thinks the Home staff were busy counting sheep while in Business 101, well that and every other class they ever attended.
