  • @ambino79 i got that message too. mine didn’t error though. you go into home in a personal space and place the beta tester train statue. then go to it and press X. the new Home actually looks pretty nice.

  • Okay, my sister’s account still cannot access the Community Theater. Restricted all the Sub Account settings, tried again, laxed the settings, still nothing. It just pops up info about what’s going on, but no prompt to enter. Even if she doesn’t care about the items, this is more than that. Why can’t she access a part of your service?

    As for other flubs, my account hasn’t gotten the CT coats, my other sister’s and her boyfriend’s accounts didn’t get the Central Plaza souvenir, and, though I know it’s not really your jurisdiction, I redeemed my Extra Life code and got the emoticon only for my male avatar (is the code tied to our gender during registration?).

  • Haven’t gotten the free coats yet. The date on the video is still September 29th. Probably a server syncronization issue and I watched all videos and waited for over an hour. Nothing yet….And the constant freeze ups, as Plaza slowly disappears and Hub coming, bugs are gonna happen along the way I guess. When Hub and districts come, and the bowling alley/theater/mall still gonna be still present, the exteriors and interiors of these spaces will be updated to fit in with the style of the Hub? They need a new look anyway. Continue to do great work guys!

  • need help i cant play the skijet race anymore…an the lag is so bad i cant even write a simple word like hi with out freezn..

  • So i know this doesn’t have anything to do with this specific update; But please, hear me out..
    I’d like for you guys (playstation home employees) to please update and fix a problem that not only myself have been experiencing. Most of the time i purchase something in any store, i get booted out or “network error”. This has got to be the most irritating thing, i have to log back in and have a “downloading…” box stuck on my screen until i log off and back on, if it lets me.

    I’m not the type to complain but when it’s been occurring for over a year now i really feel the need to do something about it. Now i just have to hope you’re going to even look at this and take it into consideration and Actually DO something about it instead of just skimming over it. The reason i say this is because i’ve seen numerous people say the same thing; obviously after the most recent update, you guys didn’t solve the problem. Thought this would have been fixed by now.

    And no, it’s not my connection. It’s Home.

  • I’m so frustrated!
    I love the look of the new coat and I haven’t been able to recieve it! :(
    I can see I’m not the only one with this, particular, problem.
    Is there a reason why this is happening, Locust_Star or GlassWalls?

  • What is up with Central Plaza? Because for 3 days now when I start up Home & go there,I ended up sinking into the ground & falling in an endless white void.All of the other spaces seems fine.There is other people on that space,but they’re not falling into the floor.I did remove & re-installed home,that didn’t help.

  • Ha,problem solved.Just had to clear out the cache.

  • when is the hub debut?

  • hey locust star, just bringing this to your attention but the aurora space adn plaza arnt working . ever since the update to 1.2 for aurora, i cant get into play the orb runner game, and thers been no bonus exp given out . i hope i will be compensated for the week i havent been able to get anything from there. and its not just me , iv seen over a 20 ppl standing at the portal at aurora , not being able to enter. if they want us to play their game they better fix it .

  • Okay really happy about the sodium one update and the rewards…but i stiil can’t get my coat please can’t you guys take a moment to fix this? Or at least tell us if your going to fix it.

  • Yeah PS Home has been very buggy lately :(
    For me it’s been:

    1. Not being able to receive the fall coat in the community theater # 10

    2. Granzella and Aurora 1.2 doesn’t load up properly, either missing backgrounds or unable to access the spaces fully

    3. UFC space the card game works, but you can’t sit in the area or else the game will freeze; also the UFC rewards board does not work.

    4. And some jerks are back freezing servers again–please try to end this malicious glitch, it is not good for our PS3s!!

    5. Have been freezing lots lately and needed to power off and on again.

    Hopefully these issues can be resolved by Thursday’s update…looks like the developers have their work cut out for them starting midnight, good luck.

  • Vita owners will be limited to downloads of 20MB or less over 3G.
    Is this for ATNT users (free) or everyone? What if i pay a additional charge for unlimited data transfer, will i be able to transfer more? Will this limit bi integrated in the software it self?

    Will i be able to connect the VITA to my Bravia or play games on may TV trough my PS3?. I would like to si the quality of the picture on the big screen. (you can connect the PSP 3000 to a tv easily, way not the PSP VITA?)

  • i have a question what happen to my rewards like my e3 suit, my uncharted 2 pants, jacket, and my hat from it and im missing a lot more. its like it got deleted or something?
