'Most Wanted' Feedback

57 Replies 1,095 Views Created 14-03-2013

Right guys I've got a list of feedback from the Home team in regards to your ideas posted in the Most Wanted Suggestion threads.  It's a big of a long read so grab a cuppa tea and make yourself comfortable and as I'm posting the feedback since December, I will post each months feedback in a seperate post to make it easier to take in for you guys. :smileyhappy:

 

MOST WANTED DECEMBER 2012

TOP 5

  1. To be allowed to use their wardrobe in friends' apartments: possible with client 1.75.
  2. Doc Martens Boots: Released by –Atom Republic.
  3. Waterfall Terrace Apartment from US –It’s been requested.
  4. A kissing/hugging locomotion but maybe with a feature where you can accept or reject –Available only as a temporary mini-game for Valentine’s Day.
  5. New free dance moves –New and different dance moves will be released.  

 NOT POSSIBLE FOR LEGAL/TECHNICAL/REGIONAL REASONS

- Increase the number of invited people allowed in apartments and clubs. 

- More than 100 slots for furniture.

- Make the personal spaces a bit higher so you can fly high with your active flying item.

- Wallpapers for in apartments

- Changing the colour of your clothing (there will be some particular items that include the possibility of changing their colour, but it is not possible to implement this as a general feature)

- Home localised in Dutch (for now Home will remain localised for EIFGS)

- Couple dances (technically a very complicated feature)

- Store organised as the Japanese one

- A house to share with another person

- New music: really difficult to get new music due to legal issues. 

- Space where users from different part of world (US, Japan etc.) could meet up.

- Free LOOT Radio that plays real music available in US PS Home: not possible due to legal issues.

- Device like TV in the apartment where music from you tube could be accessed/played: really difficult due to legal requirements. 

- ''VidZone in TV's'' Could be made the same way Crackle/Radio IO works!

- Locking furniture items down once you have placed them 

- Typical Spanish Christmas stuff such as grapes, the 3 kings

- To be able to change the size of picture frames and also the height where to hang them (further up or down on the wall). For example, If I take a bookshelf out, I should not have to worry about it falling down when I’m trying to fill the shelves.  Likewise for placing items close to each other.  The only item that should move, is the current item you are trying to place.

 

MAYBE

-          A Victorian themed Christmas space for next year

-          To have a PS Home game similar to Minecraft

-          That your hair doesn't change if you wear a certain hat (user mentioned wearing braids and having short hair suddenly when wearing a hat)

-          New sitting positions (free)

-          Gran Turismo public space and items, e.g., furniture and clothes

-          Items from games such as GT5, FF (GT5 apartment, Sackboy outfit, FF clothes...)

-          Navigator Map

-          CLUBS: Increase the number of Clubs you can be part of, and the number of members in each club.

-          More modern clothing, haircuts ¿? That’s a very subjective suggestion. New items and haircuts are being released on a regular basis, so could this be more specific?  

-          Might be nice if 'sub-leaders' of clubs could also place a certain amount of items in a club house.

 

YES

Discount for PS+ members as it is made on the PS Store and a regular update of the PS+ public space: This is included in the client 1.75.

Faster loading of personal space: hopefully happening with the new client release 1.75.

Regularly renewing the new items, there are items under 'new' that have been there for 3 months: will happen with the new client upgrade.

Really want to see the old Reaper costume from inFamous in Home again for sale this time: we will include this reward in the Twitter International Competition we are currently organising.

Re: 'Most Wanted' Feedback

MOST WANTED JANUARY 2013

TOP 5

1. A competition where the user is allowed to invent/create an active item for in Home, together with the Home Team

2. More game related content

3. Disney items, such as t-shirts with images of Disney characters

4. Coffee-related items, such as cups, coffee maker, etc.

5. New jewellery and necklaces

 

NOT POSSIBLE FOR LEGAL/TECHNICAL/REGIONAL REASONS

- More clubhouse decorations

 

- Increase the limit of items within an instance

 

- More functionality related to interactions with other players (this is technically very difficult to achieve)

 

-Vidzone stream for the apartment (or a similar solution)

 

-Be able to organize Items by folders and a bit personalised

 

- Dutch localisation for PlayStation Home

 

- Combine the two shopping centres & turn it into the old shopping centre, or a shopping centre with 2 floors

 

- Making Home like GTA, not killing each other though, but meeting each other, and diving Home into neighbourhoods, perhaps an idea for the PS4?

 

- I'd like the Groovytron music from the Ratchet & Clank space for my personal space. That's the best music in Home, but the R&C space is being ruined by...well have a look for yourself

 

- Apartments inventory

 

-Possibility to rearrange one's apartments in a list based on personal preference: this is not very clear, more information would be useful.

 

-A coat similar to The Crow's (movie) one: any pictures of this item?

 

- Interactive couple dances (technically very complicated and no good results)

 

- Being able to buy items and to offer it to a friend, directly from the Stores: will not happen for different and varied Legal issues.

 

- A new machine, like the LKWD machine that everybody could own.  That allows you to trade old unwanted items with your friends. Even if we each had to pay a small amount like £1/$1 for the privilege each time, I'd still be up for that. 

 

-A play, create and share concept where users can create furniture, apartments etc that they can share with other users.

 

 

-Fix wardrobe so that saved outfits are pictured in such a way that the user can actually tell what outfit is being worn by the avatar.  Currently seeing just the head and neck for the most part really doesn't let one know what clothes are being worn. Perhaps a small icon with the larger view of the outfit or better yet let us press R3 or L3 and have that icon enlarge to show the entire avatar and the outfit saved.

 

 

MAYBE (means that these suggestions have been already requested to HPG or Devs)

- Creating your own folders in the wardrobes so you don't have to look for a certain item for ages

 

- Feature that would allow a clubhouse to be active even while the host is offline

- God of War and Formula 1 related content

- In Navigator: every shop having their own floor to shorten loading times. (this is already the case in the US, so why not here?): this has been already implemented.

 

- More divisions e.g: hats, necklace, arms, hands, jackets, shirts, trousers, socks/leggins, shoes so this gives more combination possibilities.

 

-Harbour Studio update: Environment settings: (nights and days).

 

-Update the voice chat

 

- Faster rollerblades - like the paid for ice-skates that are faster than the free ones.

 

- Apartment clock linked to PSN clock and locale of user. Then you know what time it is in the apartment/country of the user you visit.

 

- A locomotion item that is a video recorder, like the camera function now. To be used from the avatars point of view. Then you can easily upload to Youtube via XMB. Besides Lockwood also make video cameras already.

 

- Having a software like Blueprint Home but for clothes and which would permit to create your own clothes.

 

- Metal Gear Solid -related items

 

- A cruise ship public space. The ship could have different destinations that rotate from week to week so the scenery is always changing and could feature all the amenities that cruise ships are known for.  Swimming Pools, Jacuzzis, Dance Floors, Casino, Theaters, Shops, and Activities of all kinds.

You could have Shore & Land Excursions that can be public spaces that can be added over time.  Luxury Suites on the Cruise Ship can be private spaces that can be purchased that would give you access to additional content.

 

-Olympus personal space: will be released soon

MOST WANTED FEBRUARY 2013

TOP 3

 

  1. Arcade Space
  2. Vespa Scooters
  3. Creek Falls apartment

(Please note that from February 2013 will be Top 3 suggestions)

 

 

NOT POSSIBLE FOR LEGAL/TECHNICAL or REGIONAL REASONS

- A permanent Universal Global Space

- New couple dances (technically very difficult)

- Add home pics to the photo frames, since you cannot upload your own images, this could be an alternative (not happening for different legal issues)

- Being able to return items if these are not liked for a limited time after the purchase (will not happen because this may cause many confusions, mistakes, etc. And there might be many users claiming for items they have already given).

- Different Football Teams t-Shirts: there was a try in the past to get different Football Team t-shirts, and it was not possible due to multiple Legal issues.  There might be Sport or Football t-shirts but no team-related.

- Add report function in the submenu that appears when you select a name from the list in the chatlog, to make it easier to report someone: As for HPG understanding, reporting someone is already something quite easy, and make it easier will also increase the amount of unnecessary grief reports we receive.

- Function that allows becoming invisible on the pictures taken by other obsessive user: technically and legally not feasible.

- Link Vidzone and Music unlimited subscription with multimedia Devices in PS Home: this is one of the most popular by the Community, but we have to remind them than unfortunately there are many Legal/music issues the Home Team can’t deal with, so there might be a solution, but it will not happen any time soon.

- Companion customizations: we can launch a competition ‘Design your own companion’ though, but not a feature that allows users to customize their companions.  

 

MAYBE (MEANS THAT THESE SUGGESTIONS HAVE BEEN ALREADY REQUESTED TO HPG OR THE DEVS)

-          More furniture slots

-          Tuscan Villa

-          Mount Olympus

-          A companion you can interact with

-          Add more emotions to avatars or being able to customize the mood sentence of the avatar (they are only default ones for now like sad, happy etc).

-          Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles costumes

-          New poker tables (Texas Holdem, Omaha (High / Low), Seven Card Stud or the classic Five Card Draw.)

-          Being able to be a member of more than 5 clubs

-          PlayStation One item was given out 2 and a half years ago in NA Home. Can we have one and a fat PS2

-          Storage option for unused hair styles

-          Active items (music items for example) should be still active in a club even when the owner of the item is not in Home anymore

-          Create folders in order to have more organized your items

-          Have a different category in the inventory for companions and locomotion items

-          Add a search function for apartments and location, for ease of navigation

-          Mythical creature - Centaur

Re: 'Most Wanted' Feedback

"NOT POSSIBLE FOR LEGAL/TECHNICAL/REGIONAL REASONS" I remember Sony saying this in the mid 90s about digital music distribution.

 

I think the real reason is they don't have the resources to pursue these ideas; so it all goes into the too-hard-basket and dubbed not possible.

 

Saying that, Sony's business model was never to "do the impossible" and I may as well not go on about all that as it falls on deaf ears here.

 

On a more positive note, at least they got back to us. Thanks Rossy :smileyvery-happy:

This is just SCEE saying they wont do it. Other more open minded and creative developers (might) be reading this and give a few of those "impossible" things a go.

 

 

- Apartment clock linked to PSN clock and locale of user. Then you know what time it is in the apartment/country of the user you visit.

 

This already exists by the way. I have a couple of clocks which do this.
