The Lack of Creativity. . .

54 replies 54 views Edited Apr 9, 2010

So... This AvsP 'event' is the 5th or so dance off on NA Home. I think a dance off every now and then is fine, but the majority of ALL our events have been dance offs. Not to mention all these events are only being held in Central Plaza, when Home has a variety of spaces to choose from. Even if home was prohibited to only use core spaces of Home for events... we have the gamers lounge, the mall, the bowling alley, numberous theaters, etc.. We even have the presentation podium, that can make its return during events or something.

 

Most of these events were given rewards for participating. Kudos. However this 'event' doesnt. So not only are we particiapating in an event that is basically the same thing as most other events on NA Home, we're encouraged to buy these $$ costumes for the event with no reward granted. Hell... I cant even be with my friends at this event because my PS3 just froze up 5 times after accepting an invite to different central plazas. This is damaging my hardware shutting my system on and off like that. Please, make events worth while, The lack of creativity really has me wondering 'Why'.

 

Suggestions for future events:

1. Events around Home in different spaces, not just central plaza.

2. RPG style events like that of our friendly neighborhood Japan Home. (April Fools Day event)

3. Events that dont consist of Free vs Paid/Paid vs Paid items by "dancing off"

4. Something BIG, like the Xi event. That event had the forums active and more users involved.

5. How about an event that requires us to obtain unlockable items from the games around home, and use them to access other parts of home, to complete another challenge. For example, you need the echochrome outfit to access theater 5, which gives directions on what to do next, etc...

 

Get creative Home! Dance-offs are getting played out, seriously. At least give us more dance emotes if we have to endure more 'dance-off' events than something more creative.

This one is a user run event unlike the others, reason that there is no prize. But I agree, there could have been maybe a little more creativity in it. They probably did what they were able to being how its the first user run event.

I'll take Japan's April Fools Day event any day over these. I agree totally with the OP.

When Sony hires community managers the quality of events will go way up. I'm guessing that Sony is holding off until Home comes out of Beta. Kudos to Sony and their 12 million beta testers.

We also thought people were tired of dance-offs, but YOU the users wanted to throw them! As long as people are having fun, where's the harm? No one has to buy anything to participate.

 

That said, we do encourage everyone always to "think outside the box" and throw different types of events in different spaces. And until we get an events space, Central Plaza IS our best events space! But keep throwing out your ideas, we love them!

Presentation Podium is EU only, apparently we had it at a time before, or was that Events Landing space? Either way, I would like to see a space made specifically for events such as these.

i thought the gamers lounge was suppossed to be the event space (thats what was said when it came out), and then the presentation podium after that (but i think thats more of a special event space more suited to E3 and TGS)
