You've posted this in the PlayStation Discussions Forums, Stardust.

Sony does not actively participate here, never really has, probably never really will.

Occasionally, we get "official" notifications, but neither Sony, nor its representatives respond to the myriad of questions, accusations, or demands posted here.

All you will get, at best, would be opinions from your fellow Forum members, which won't amount to much except possibly sympathetic, "Yeah! That sucks!" types of replies...

How Sony runs Home, creates or removes content, does or does not make money is Sony's business, and based on their reactions to Forum discussions so far, it is not something they are inclined to publicly discuss with the userbase for any reason.

All we can do, is hope that whatever cheat was used in the past will not be able to be used in the new season...

My POV: Enjoy YOUR Home experience, without forcing it on those around you.
RESPECT is FREE. You will get what you give.

You're in the right place bud, just in the wrong universe, because the staff rarely respond here. -.-

The only active posters in any positive regards are our 3rd party devs, so if you remember who is behind the Hold 'Em rooms, they might be more productive if you PM them on the forum to their rep. ID.


I don't budlist-add on forums, and blank PSN requests get ignored!
Missing Rewards -over a year old, still never fixed! 3-4 months worth of items still MIA.

See this thing ^^^? Gettin alot of Forum-requests... look me up on PSN, not on here.
http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/3402531 <- Login/MissingItems issues, over 6 month old problem still never fixed! 3-4 months worth of items still unreturned as of current.

Ummm...They are the SONY Home hold' em rooms...

Nice try...lol!

And Stardust, I doubt you will get an answer from Joystick Warrior over in Support, but YES, your question would be better directed over there, than it is here.

Cute that you think I'm trying anything. But if you look at the Credits for the Hub's game spaces, there are third parties involved.

I think RC Rally is Hellfire Games, and Bootleggers is nDreams, I don't care much for digital poker, so I can't remember who did it.

Unfortunately the Home Hold'em Poker rooms seem to be plagued with errors.

After losing a lot of chips with a winning hand I haven't really returned since (yes I did put it in support), and fortunately the Casino arrived shortly afterwards so I do all my Poker in there. I prefer the play in there, and I also prefer Tournament Tables as opposed to the ring tables in the sportswalk.

Hopefully they can iron out these issues for the start of your season 2 as a lot of effort was put into that space and it really deserves to be a bit better than it is.

All of them got there by winning chips from alternate profiles that took advantage of an exploit (unlimited multimillion buy-ins).

I'm not surprised if this is true. I suspected there was some sort of an exploit being used for the leaderboards a long time ago. Hopefully the info. about how they are doing it, which I don't personally understand (alt profiles and multi-million $ buy-ins?), will eliminate those people from being recognized for season 1. Realistically, that probably won't happen, but it should.

Now it makes sense. I recently met someone on a private server that said she was stealing chips. When I asked her what she meant she said give her a second and she'd explain and suddenly I got the F-13. (This was back when the errors were rampant). I havent seen her since but I now suspect she had a method of gaining chips that were shady.
