Playstation Home Poker

Dear PlayStation Home,
I would like to send you this message to request that Home please bring back the EA Sports Poker room, or if not, something similar to it. I really love playing poker on Home, but I find that the newer poker rooms, from Sports Walk, are very frustrating for a few reasons.
For the lowest stakes table, the games never have a definite start and finish, they are never ending, so the player is forced to leave the poker table only once the endless game becomes tiresome, or when all the other players have left and no one else randomly joins, there is no clear winner or loser. Also if you are winning, and you try to clean someone out of the game so they run out of chips and must wait until the next game to play, you can't because they automatically get another 400 chips to keep playing in that game. The base bet is only 2 chips, where before in EA sports I believe it was 5-10. Two chips I find is not enough, after a while it feels like the players are just nickel-and-diming it. Lastly, the sports walk poker rooms seem to go at a somewhat slower pace than compared to the older tables.
I know I am just one person, but I know several of my PSN friends feel the same way about the updated poker rooms. If Home brought back a similar space to the EA Poker room, I would be so happy.
Thank you for you attention,
-Katie

There is tournament style poker similar to EA at the Casino. That isn't free however.

Yes that's true, but yeah you can't play it over and over again with your friends if they run out of casino chips.
I used to play EA poker a lot with my friends, it, pool and bowling were the most fun.

Actually, if we win more often than we lose, the game is free.

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

Say If you want to play 10 games with your friends, the chances of you and your friends not winning every game and runing out of chips to be able to play are greater.

Many of us miss EA Poker, Racing and Golf. I know I even miss Club Fight Night. We've been there for so long hoping to get it back. That isn't going to happen. They are least did provide a free poker venue although it's certainly not the same format.

 

We've lost lots of nice spaces over the years. It's a shame because many of them were special.

Kind of unrelated but I found it strange that a video of all the old EA spaces including poker rooms, racing, golf etc. shows on the vid screen in the new Audi apt in EU. Was like deja vu when I noticed it playing......I like it. 

 

....and I think I spotted Jo in the poker segment playing in high heels and a bikini O_O j/k
