The powers behind the Pottermore Universe on Home completely understand the "hows" and "whys" of people using Home:
1) Segregating the community so that people can't hang with their friends unless they are in the same fam (whoops, I meant House, sorry!)
2) Limiting communication options so that people have to be in the same space and within range to public chat with someone else (except in the Hogsmeade House, where you can't communicate at all)
3) Stifling individuality and creative expression:
a) Severely crippling people's ability to use their imagination in wearing unique and creative outfits while anywhere in the Pottermore universe (without using exploits)
b) Severely crippling people's ability to showcase their decorating skills by forcing everyone to use the same furniture items in their OWN apartment
c) Not allowing people to use their cameras to make creative films showcasing the Hogsmeade House
Nothing captures the spirit of Home more than segregation, limited communication and stifled creativity.
Well done, Pottermore! Well done!
(The above was sarcasm, just in case anyone missed it)
Jersquall: Any new news on Home on PS4 yet?
Tempest_Fire: Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014.
:-/ Sad thing is that's the equivalent of just sending an XMB to a friend who's playing a different game with the irony being you're both in the same game in the same room staring at each other.
Somewhat surprised there's been no comment on the chat issue by Joystick yet. This couldn't have been what the space was supposed to do.
