PlayStation Home Will Soon Be No More
For almost six years PlayStation Home has served as a fun little social hub for PS3 owners, allowing them to customize avatars and living spaces and meet up together in a virtual world for dancing and lewd behavior. Soon, however, that will all be coming to an end.
A new post that popped up on the PlayStation Home Updates community page last week shared the bad news: "Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on November 12, 2014. Gamers in the U.S. and Canada will be able to download content until December 3, 2014. As a token of our tremendous gratitude to the community, we will also be releasing a series of free content prior to the platform's closure on March 31, 2015."
We imagine that the "shifting landscape" means one of two things: either the PS Home userbase has dropped since the PS4's launch, or games are now able to offer just as much social interaction as Home on their own, making Home obsolete. For example, why dance with strangers in PS Home when you can do the same on the Tower in Destiny before completing a story mission or fighting in the Crucible?
If you were a fan of PS Home, you better go take one last look around before the service is shuttered for good.
