What would you pay for?
A huge sticking point with PS Home with a lot of people I've spoken to
is the issue of being nickled and dimed to access new content in Home.

I understand that the cost of keeping things running must be monstrous
and the purchases can ease that, but I wont be paying $1.50 for a virtual lamp.

I would however gladly pay a few bucks for an arcade cabinet of something like
Gradius, Pool Tables or extending your personal space with something
along the lines of a tennis court.

Basically anything that will allow me to create a space that I can invite my buddies
over the PSN in to run around in and play a few games.

What about the rest of you, dead set against opening your wallet or just waiting
for the right piece of merch to roll by?

A fishing minigame would be awesome, if they made yardspace that is, the initial apartment
is a bit cramped

Without realizing, I've spent quite a bit of money in Home when you add up the Summer House, clubhouse, business suit, tuxedo, and some furniture here and there.

It would be nice to see some cheaper content, especially since they're making quite a bit of cash off of Home, not only from microtransactions, but also from advertisements and the music they have in Home.

Home is a great concept and i love it but i dont think its played out enough. I know the nickel and dime is a good thing for sony as PSN is completely free but i wont buy anything on home as i have no use for it. I rather go to the PSN store and buy things from there, i know sony doesnt profit as much from that, but its more worth my money.

What would i buy if home offered it? maybe early access to some movie or something special event like that, id probably pay 1 or 2 bucks for that. Home just needs something other than "networking" for me to want to jump into it every now and then.

What would be cool is if Sony offered an MMo in similar fashion...Free and its just on every ps3 via update so thousands of people are playing. Then nickel and dime people there.

You know, I've been racking my brain for a few minutes and besides the few bits
of interactive swag you can share with buds, I really cant think of anything I'd
want to buy...

Surprise me sony.

Count me in the group of things being too expensive, why would you pay $1-2 for an outfit for your virtual avatar, it's not like you will ever get to wear it and it's just for looks. Give me something worth while, like the ability to build a race track or some similar activity outside my Home apartment kind of like in the EA Sports Complex without having to step in there or a television to broadcast things on my hard drive. I gladly pay $5 for that.
