Why?   What harm is it for others to know what the items someone is using are and how to get them?  Why would you not want others to know this, other than your friends?

 

Frankly, I'm glad they are adding this as it will end some of the elitist high school attitudes some people in Home have regarding how they got some of their items.

I suspect ISE content that one might be wearing would simply show "not localized". That would also apply to rewards legally received by visiting friends personal spaces in other regions. 

 

I don't know why another user knowing that I'm wearing Peakvox legging/shorts and Lockwood shoes and a GZ tube top would matter to me. Many of us know what they are anyway although I was at an club event yesterday evening and a friend there had a really cute outfit on that I didn't recognize. I would have loved to have had that ability to find out where it was from.

Why would you care if people know what you're wearing. I don't see that a big issue at all. 


Yea this should help w/ ppl finding out instead of asking the person to go into their warbrobe & get the store info.

I know right.. Unless people have something to hide?

 

Anyway I can't count the number of times I have asked someone where they bought a certain top or shoes and they refuse to tell me, now I can see for myself and go buy it without a big hassle.

General Improvements

 

  • A feature has been added to allow developers to choose what emotes they with to use with specific outfits. This gives developers more freedom when creating outfits as they do not have to ensure that every default emote can work.
  • Players you have interacted with as you journey through Home will be added to your Players Met list on the XMB.
  • It is now possible for the client to display user presence information on your Friends List that can show where or what you and your friends are playing while in Home.
  • Developers can now specify specific spawn points for users that have been invited to a scene so that you will always appear in the right place. 

A feature has been added to allow developers to choose what emotes they with to use with specific outfits:  This sounds really interesting, but also terribly vague.  When they say "more freedom when creating outfits" does this mean we will now have more avatar categories, like separate left and right hand item choices?  Hmmm - just not clear what this really means.

 

Players Met list (on Home) on the XMB: This could be really useful.  I know there are times I met someone in Home, we are talking and then *poof" get one of the many network errors that boots you out of Home or freezes your system, and thus the chat log is wiped out, and unless I remembered their exact PSN ID, I am unable to contact them.  Kudos for adding this!

 

Display user presence information on your Friends List:  This could be really useful.  Yes, it is a tad Big Brotherish, but then you have control over who is on your friends list.  Also, many online multiplayer games now display where in the game your friend's are in so you can decide if you want to join them or not more easily.  However, I also think they should include an option in our PS3 privacy settings that allow us to deactivate our activity info, as some might not want to advertise what they are doing.

 

Specific spawn points for users that have been invited to a scene:  I'm not exactly sure what this all means, but I will be curious to see how this is implemented and what it really will do.

I can see how this could make you feel like your privacy is being invaded and I think that is a very good idea.  As of right now we don't know how this feature will work, I mean what if this draws other avi's all day inspecting your outfit?  What if you find yourself being mobbed by people inspecting what your wearing?

 

 We don't see the harm in it yet since we don't know how it will work, what if whenever you targeted another avi it started showing you what they are wearing?  I hope this is not the case since that would be annoying to me, I guess we would have to see how this works or how close do you needs to be, but it does seems a bit creepy if people just started hovering over me just to see what im am wearing.

When I'm on my PS3 I'm usually wearing white socks and my whitie tighties. Whomever can see me is their problem.

Oh, and Target is my goto store for wardrobe.   Smiley Happy

One of the benefits I see with the Player Inspect is when you have the question as to where something was purchased, but the wearer chooses to either outright ignore or troll the person inquiring.
