31 people including you so in total 32. Here in Europe it is €4,99. So i don't mind also to create one. Or maby bram wants to make one himself.
Don't I already pay enough to keep this site running :P Nahh I don't mind who creates it.

I'd like to test this some more to see what the functionality is for people across countries. It looks like maybe the bowling alley is dependent upon sending an Invite if you want to see people in a country other than your own, or perhaps region. Also, because the club can only have 32 people, these are permanent Invites. So only the same 32 people could be able to use the club, so that limits the membership for that one club.

You can talk with a mic or with text. For the text, you have an option of using the controller to pick the letters, or you can use any old PC computer keyboard that has a USB connection, assuming your PS 3 has a USB input. I got an older computer keyboard at a secondhand shop for $1 and it works great.

If your using the mic don't forget to press R2 to talk (i made that mistake the first time). And about that 32 people limit, i read somewhere that its possible to get a second clubhouse so you can get more people. Don't know if this is true, but worth to check out. Also i went ahead and checked for existing FF-Clubs, most where for VII and even one was for Final Fantasy Radio. So FFTogether can't stay behind. So know to decide who is gonna run it. I just filled my wallet on psn so pprincess its your choice.

okay, well I guess you might as well go ahead and get one unless there is a monthly fee, because in the US we don't have monthly club fees yet.

no there are no fees right now. Maybe I should buy the Club then. We can see how it goes, if it's not getting used much, then we can always discontinue it when fees take effect.

The one concern I have is whether the 31 people are fixed invites, the same 31 people belong.

Well the public area's are region, but the private spaces like clubhouses and your own houses aren't. pprincess was able to get to my room so it shouldn't be a problem.

Playstation Home, at least in the US, has bowling, pool/billiards, two rooms of video game machines. There is a bubble game at the water pool/fountain the Central Plaza. Then, there is a Playstation Beta area that has a bar and dance club, and there is a game demo to try in there as well. In the Beta area, you can earn points for trying the demo, and for working at the bar serving drinks. The points can be spent on items. The mall features chess tables.

As for the clubhouse and apartment: you get a studio apartment of your own that comes with generic furniture. You can purchase individual furniture pieces or an entire themed set, like a Paris apartment, or a beach patio or a log cabin. There are pieces that are inspired by various video games.

For your avatar, you can purchase clothing, body parts etc. There are free standard ones to pick from, but the pieces you buy are more interesting. Most purchased pieces are 99 cents. You can buy all these things at the mall.

"FFT" is a short for almost anything. I bet that "FFTogether" isn't being taken ;)

As a tag? I am allready using that as the clubs name. cuz Final Fantasy Together was 1 letter to big. the "r" was taking away on the end so.

UPDATE:
Well this is what i am gonna do for the club:

Name: FFTogether
tag:    FF2gther

If i am correct everything will fit in the text field, if not i will change it here. I will wait 1 hour if no one is against this i will make the club.
