The Pet Shop and Aquarium from Digital Leisure

29 Replies 1,303 Views Created 11-12-2012

I was reading an article on HomeStation Magazine about a new Pet Shop and Aquariam from Digital Leisure. It looks fantastic to be honest!

 

This is what Digital Leisure told them about it:

 

“The Pet Shop is the ultimate place to pick up the latest and greatest companions and aquatic items for you and your personal spaces. Just for coming by you’ll take home a free Goldfish Tank. This full interactive aquarium item allows you to feed your fish, clean your tank and rewards you for keeping them alive. Put it on display and customize it the way you want with more fish and decorations. There is a wide selection of aquatic life and ornaments to choose from. If that goldfish tank just isn’t big enough, there are even more tank sizes available! All of these can be previewed, and purchased, at the Pet Shop.

 

“The Pet Shop is not only home to our underwater friends, but there are cat and dog companions waiting for your attention and love. The shop also houses a Dancing Weasel companion that was created from The Casino’s custom home item contest.”

 

Have a look at the video here http://youtu.be/12M5CoLJgus

I was expecting this here aswell, DL normally released their stuff everywhere at once.

 

Seems a lot of stuff that is ready to be added isn't making it over here.

 

Still waiting on the nDreams Sci-Fi stuff aswell.

Not sure if it'll be here this week but if it's not, good question to ask them during the event. Figured it looked interesting and that's the kinda thing we can expect at some point so shared it. Really want it though!

This was posted on the North American forums by Digital Leisure. Prices are in dollars. Blocks refers to funiture slots.

Hey guys. We're glad to see some excitement for this item. I'm going to explain a few things that people have questions on.

 

Firstly, The Pet Shop is a Public Space. Everyone can go there and check out the fish, and see the rewards. You can also buy bigger tanks and certain aquarium related items from the registers.

 

The dogs, the cats, and The Weez are all sidekicks. The Weez was designed with the help of WEASEL182. These guys can all be purchased at the registers as well.

 

Now in terms of blocks that are taken up. I know we all hate it when active items take up a lot of space, but we need to take up some blocks in order for our aquarium to function like a living, breathing, aquatic ecosystem. Each tank has a different set amount of blocks it will take up. The bigger the tank the more blocks it will take up. The reason behind this is because we wanted to make it so if you had a bigger tank, you could fill it with more fish and decorations, nobody wants a half empty tank. (Well maybe somebody does but we think a full tank looks much better.)
 

Here are the stats: (We made them as small as we could!)


FREE Goldfish bowl: 18 Blocks

 

$0.99 Small Aquarium Bundle: 18 Blocks

 

$4.99 Medium Aquarium Bundle: 19 Blocks

 

$9.99 Large Aquarium Bundle: 24 Blocks

 

$14.99 Deluxe Aquarium Bundle: 30 Blocks

 

$19.99 Ultimate Aquarium Bundle: 33 Blocks

- Note: This aquarium's size can be adjusted

 

Each of the bundles come with fish or decorations, or both.

___

 

And this as well.

http://community.us.playstation.com/t5/PlayStation-Home/The-Pet-Shop-amp-Aquarium-PlayStation-Home-D...

 

This is what is inside the Ultimate Aquarium Bundle

 

1 Ultimate Tank

1 Pack of Fish

1 Pack of decorations

 

You must purchase all of the tanks seperately if you want all of the tanks. So if you want a small tank you must purchase the Small Aquarium Bundle. Then if you want the Ultimate Tank you must purchase the Ultimate Aquarium Bundle.

 

Here is a picture of the Ultimate Tank at it's maximum size. (NOTE:  the decorations and fish may not be  the ones that are included in the Bundle)

 

The Ultimate Tank

 

Sorry for the confusion. We know this aquarium was not included in the video.

Are the slots the aquarium takes up including the fish and decorations that go in it or do you need additional slots to fill the tanks?

Hmmm, does that mean that the biggest tank is a *possible* 33 slots rather than mandatory then? Could I say, put down the giant tank then drop in one little goldfish and that makes 2 slots?

Mmmm no. Once you place a tank in your space, even if it's empty, it will take up the furniture slots listed previously. So if you place an empty Ultimate Tank, it will still take up 33 slots.

Haha yes, the bigger the tank, the more fish it can hold. The Ultimate tank can hold up to 100 fish.
