Yeah, had to knock out the two of the big anchors for this week's update (Kikai and Serentity Park).  Sorta trimmed down the post more than I expected.  Then again, this is part of why I want to keep a daily dialogue about content with you all, so that we're not just hopping in the forums once adn the blog once per week and letting you speculate through the rest of the week.

Can't say for sure, but I'll ask soon. Typically when things get removed it's due to a lapsed contract that didn't get renewed for one reason or another.  On rare occassions it's due to a QA issue that's discovered after an update.  But I'll check.  I can't promise that I'll return with an answer, but I'll try to learn what happened there.

In that same vein... Do you have plans on having a dialogue with us about the MANY issues that have been brought up about the service that your predecessor nor anyone else at Sony has ever responded to?

 

As it is, it seems all we hear from our Sony reps is "pay no attention to the fire, instead, look at all the shiny new stuff"!

 

Can you address issues like item management (so that it isn't so bloody hard to use the items you all keep pushing us to buy)?

 

Can you address issues like the character save slot folder which can take a long time to load before allowing us to even close the folder?

 

Can you address issues like the organization (or lack thereof) of the public and personal spaces in our nav menu?

 

Can you address issues like the still missing option to save multiple layouts of our personal spaces (which if we had that option again, it would likely result in more sales of items to use for those multiple layouts)?

 

Can you address issues like why Home is still plagued with so many network disconnect errors?

 

Can you address the issue that is the obvious elephant in the room, and answer why Sony has not made any mention about the future of Home, even on the PS3?

 

 

It should be painfully obvious by now, Sony's silence on these issues is causing a tremendous amount of dissent among your customers, has likely caused many to give up on the service, and those that continue to hope things improve to argue amongst each other due to the total lack of information coming from Sony - which has led to excessive speculation (something you appear to at least admit isn't ideal).

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. -

D, 

 

Full disclosure: Some of these questions I simply don't know the answer to, yet.  Others I can't directly address. Others I'm concerned that my data is old (from when I was a Home Lead Moderator). And others don't have any new answers at all.  I fired off a few of these to others for clarification.  If I can, I'll update you with what I find out.

 

For now, I can say that there's no news on the "future of Home" question.  For the rest, I'll ask those who would know best, and return with whatever information I can.  Even if it's another bit of "no news to share".
