After Reading and hearing some news a few mins ago... Im not only dissapointed, yet a bit sad and depressed too... nothing lasts forever, even in the virtual world...
IDC for most rewards / free items. I don't feel the need to demand any either. And any rewards I have / had enjoyed I would've paid for anyway if it wasn't a reward. Some days I'd love to wake up one morning & find all the rewards were removed. Just to get rid of anyone who solely uses PS Home for free stuff.
I still however hate the card game & wish they'd stop using it in the story.
Enough of that rant. But onto Spoiler Tags.
The bomb was Real. Axiom couldn't or wouldn't deactivate it. (Bad) Stapler is now in more or less pieces than MST. And we now have to wait till AS0 makes another statement.
The most interesting or frustrating thing that happens now is the debate who's the Greater Evil between Axiom & AS0.
I still say its Axiom since if MST wasn't torn apart the whole bomb situation might have been avoided.
Rest In Peace Old friend :'(
I'm hurt to see that Stapler is gone...
I'm standing in front of his pieces... really depress...
This will hurt the entire Community. Stapler was Home and Home was Stapler.
Our old Robot Smart friend from Xi is now in pieces :'(
Good Bye my friend, and thank you for everything
i would rebuild stapler if i had the ability. i would also install a hover disk so he could move around freely. our robotic buddy deserves it ^.=.^
BEWARE OF THE SPEEDING WHITE SAUSAGE!!!!!

OT- I would have to agree with Patchex and Jacked-Assassin. The main reason Xi 1 was so fondly remembered (or even early Home for that matter) is because the users were experiencing something new and even with the limitations of Home saw potential for more and made the best of what they had.
It's like every time I read someone say, "Bring back CP!" If they brought it back, it wouldn't change anything. What made CP so important to them wasn't the space itself, but the experience they had. Back then, there was less. Of EVERYTHING. The Home community made the best of what they had and pushed to show what it was capable of. These days, we've all gotten so caught up in what new items and spaces are coming out that we forget to enjoy any of it.
Honestly, I think if we had no more new items to buy or trinkets, we would see a lot of people leave. But the ones that stayed would find ways to make Home their own. And make the best of what they have.
So, yes, I may be a bit disappointed in Xi2. But no more so than the early Home users were in the limitations they had. That's where constructive criticism and our own innovation come in.
I know Joey is reading our posts and he's taking notes.
I will most likely getting chapter 2. Not because of expectations but because I've met a lot of people through Xi2. A lot. Just looking over this thread, I can see many people I've met and talked to. Heck, this thread is as much of the game as anything nDreams or Joey has done. It's built a foundation for a niche community. That is what people who miss the first Xi or CP are really missing. And we should take advantage of that.
Just fyi, a lot of people have posted spoilers about today. I know I came to the thread and knew that:
before I did the mission. I kinda saw it coming, but just saying...
No, Rare items are from like limited time events, theres nothing rare about the stuff in the exclusive store unless they plan to take em out within the next month, I could see them being rare that way but not when they're still in the store. Its just a away for Sony (or whoever) to leach money out of the community.
ANYWAY lets get back on topic.
Well that's your definition of what a free item is, but that does not make it true. A rare item can be anything in Home it does not have to do with an event at all. To the rest of us a rare item is any item that looks cool that not many users have.
Now can we please get back on-topic.
