[NEW CONTENT] Coming Feb 20th, 2013

Happy early 3-day weekend everyone! President's Day is on Monday, and our offices will be closed then, so let me share a nice chunk of preview content for next week's publish. I will be on vacation until Wednesday, so this is the only preview chunk I will be able to share until then.

 

I do have a special event though to announce coming to Home next Wednesday. As I'm sure many of you are aware, PlayStation has a very special event planned on 2/20 (Wed), and we are more than excited to share that it will be live streamed also into Home. If you're not able to join us in-world, it will be available via other channels including the PS Blog and these forums. So set your reminders, as the event starts at 3pm Pacific / 6pm Pacific wherever you might be watching from. 

 

If you opt to enjoy it from Home for a shared community watching experience, it will be hosted in the Community Theater itself (theater auditorium 1). So head there right after it starts and let the streaming begin! (If you don't see it, just walk out and back into the auditorium, and it will reset the stream). 

 

For more info on the event, check this link: https://us.playstation.com/meeting2013/

 

And on with the good stuff...

 

x7 (Exclusives and Early Access):

  • value bundle #44 exclusive to members
  • Lockwood has some fantastic Locomotions coming for a week's early-access (Ex.: Flame Flight, Superpowers Value Pack, etc)
  • VEEMEE has some cool Billabong clothing coming early for members (Ex. Billabong AVX Fedoras, Statik Fleece, boardshorts, and a couple ensembles for the ladies)

Digital Leisure:
The Casino will be getting a new reward tier soon, with a very special new reward.

 *Note: This is just a sneak peek, not confirming a date from Digital Leisure.

Heavy Water:

Dragon Riders and companions! This collection includes 6 dragons and companions to choose from (rideable versions that coming in the form of Active Items for your personal space enjoyement and companions that follow you around anywhere). Each Dragon Rider Active Item has a breath attack that is unique to its nature. Which is your style? Fire, Lightning, Golden, or perhaps the Garden Variety? Avalon Faire will not be the same...

...drum roll please...

 

SNEAK PEEK:

So... we might have something special up our sleeve (no release date set, so not necessarily coming this next Wednesday). I'll just leave this right here with no further comment to tease ya with.

Do you think we could have our wardrobes and furniture storage in order by the time of the next update? As is, most new any content is tedious to find and sometimes impossible to use. I think such a fix would be a boon to new item sales (to say nothing of placating many disgruntled users).

I don't have any concrete info, but I can state that all of these little issues that are bubbling up and affecting a few folks are being monitored and worked on. We know that those who are our core users simply just have collected the most stuff over time, and it obviously affects you guys most. We're very mindful of that and appreciate your patience while we're working on it.

So you're stating that the furniture storage, wardrobe and disconnect issues (which we are supposed to ignore for the feedback thread) are minor issues affecting just a few folks? I was led to believe that most, if not everyone was having at least some of these problems. The support forum certainly seem to paint that picture as well.

 

The core users would be some of your best customers, yes? I will exhibit some patience, I would also appreciate further updates on this situation. I'm sure many others would as well.

Correct. That is what I'm saying. I'm also saying that the platform operators are monitoring and ensuring things get smoother / faster / better, and I'll update as I learn more (or in my absense, Joystick_Warrior in the Home Support forum will).
