Mia, do you know If we link our Pottermore account, will we be in the same house than on the website ?

    If you link a Pottermore account that’s completed Chapter Seven on Pottermore.com, then your House sorting will be maintained in PS Home. Linking a Pottermore account will also enable you to trade cards with other people :)

Finally! A reason to boot up home, I’ve loved Harry Potter since the film series’ inception; it’ll be wonderful to relive the iconic locations from te films for once! Can we go in Gringott’s Bank inside the Diagonal Alley set?

Really great. I will definitely check this out on my SCEE account. There’s never too much Potterverse for me. I’m currently pursuing the plat in Book of Spells. For all the naysayers, you might be at least interested in the easy plat.

 

A little off the topic but when will we be seeing Secret agent clank in the european stores? U.S got it a long time ago, and such good game is something I don’t want to miss on my PS VITA.

If anyone replies thank you.

Comment one of two
ok . What is the point in having all of these new movements and dances IF WE CANNOT SEE WHAT WE ARE BUYING IN STORE? Take the new World packs. I saw someone doing some new mooves that I liked in Home yest. So I came here after seeing it was too early in youtube for any one of the community to have posted therein as of yet(and I should not NEED to go and look there, it’s not their job is it). So I arrive here and click on the picture above hoping to see which move is called what to reference what I can get in-store & hey presto I’m taken to an impotanr silhouette on FLICKr that does & show nothing. Commonly the filmlets if they are up there anyways are too busy trying to be hip and fashionable to actually be of any use HELPING as clear reference. (cont. next comment box)

& as for what is in the very place I want to buy the thing from that I possibly THINK I might be getting(and this has cost me a load of packs I never use and DON’T want), it would just be too darn EASY to actually SHOW us IN-STORE what we would be getting wouldn’t it Sony. That’s like giving firemen running water in-situ isn’t it? I think you have made ALOT of money from mistaken purchases here in the past Sony because of this & your unhelpful no refund policy this is just dandy for you isn’t it. You need to put brief clips in-store SHOWING each moves that come with each pack. A silhouette sadly does not cut it..
