Now a few months later, seeing what they're doing with it (or lack thereof), it's rather embarrassing really. You can't even use chat features in one of their PURCHASABLE apartments for Christ sake. I've lost interest at this point.
Come check out my Twitch TV channel, will be streaming various PS4 games from time to time http://www.twitch.tv/reddaxel
The Pottermore spaces are certainly among the most beautifully designed environments in Home. The attention to detail is quite impressive.
I'm not entirely sure why they exist or what I'm supposed to do when I visit...but they are very beautiful.
Agreed, and the games can be a lot of fun, and also visually much nicer than most games in Home. It's just a shame this promo was not better planned, and that the severe restrictions and very little incentive to keep coming back and stay in those spaces for long clearly turned *most people off and have left those spaces mostly deserted.
* Yes, I understand there are some who do not mind not being able to receive or send any messages other than local, and don't mind having to wear only Pottermore clothes and only use Pottermore LMOs & companions, even though there are countless non-Pottermore items in Home that would fit the theme and allow users to create more individual looks... But clearly these people are the exception and not the rule.
Sony's PlayStation Home updated mission statement...
"Like it never happened"
- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -
I did complete the first few tasks of the Charms activity. It doesn't seem like much more than a clever demo of the Sixaxis controller...six years too late. Not exactly an engrossing game.
