PlayStation Home shutting its doors March 2015

playstation-home-logoIt’s the end of an era folks.  Sony’s virtual world for the PlayStation 3 is finally closing down in early 2015.

It was certainly an interesting social experiment at the very least, and many PS3 owners actually dabbled in creating a second life there, but it was inevitable that it was going to wind down sooner or later. Seven plus years is probably longer than anyone expected, so kudos to SCEE and SCEA for keeping it going and the various PS Home inhabitants who stuck with it for that entire time.PS-Home

If you really are going to miss those wild avatar dance parties, you can always meet up in Destiny’s tower.

Read on for the official announcement from SCEE.

PlayStation Home has been serving the PS3 community since December 2008. During that time, tens of millions of users around the world have grown the social gaming platform into a thriving community of creative and enthusiastic gamers.

Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content on the 12th of November, 2014. Gamers in Europe will be able to download content until the 3rd of December, 2014. As a token of our tremendous gratitude to the community, we will also be releasing a series of free content prior to the platforms closure on the 31st of March, 2015.

We would like to thank all of our fans for their support of the PlayStation Home platform over the years.
