The End of PlayStation Home?

7 posts in this topic

PlayStation Home in Japan and Asia will end March 2015. I wonder how long they'll keep the service operational in Europe and America.
 

Sony hasn’t supported PlayStation Home with new content in Japan for quite some time, and yesterday it announced it will shutter the social service come March 2015.

The service will go out with a bang though, as “large scale events” are planned for those who still use the service.

SCEE and SCEA will remain up and running, according to the announcement. The only regions affected are Asia and Japan.

 

I only used PlayStation Home once, but I kind of like the Xbox and Wii U avatar system better.

I never got into Wii system of doing avatars. The Miis never inspired me buy more Mii Games.

 

The Xbox 360 avatars I at least bought an outfit for, but that only happened after I got A World Of Keflings from Games With Gold.

 

PS Home out of the 3 was the one I liked the most. However my interest began to die once PS4 was announced. I guess "The Quest For Greatness" on PS Home was either cancelled or will continue at TGS. But I expect the former over the latter at this rate.

 

On the bright side I was probably going to replace PS Home with DCUO (If Lobo is ever added) ESO (if it hasn't been cancelled for PS4 by now), or EQN (if it comes to PS4).

I tried playing DCUO on PS3. It was such a pain in the ass just trying to meet up with friends, that I quit even trying to play it because it would literally take over an hour to meet up with someone. Maybe they fixed that issue.. Hell, we'd even go to the watchtower and it would take another hour to find each other, only to find out we weren't in the same phase.. and even getting on the same phase still didn't work most of the time. :crap:

I didn't think DCUO would make PS Home sound better when meeting your friends. On PS Home you could at least follow them to their location & their name might blink in black & white. There is also always the locate option if you lose them again while still in the same space.

      Uncharted 4 is $20. I just bought it. I might have to put Mass Effect on the back burner.

      The new PlayStation 4 firmware update will include external HHD support for game installation. Finally. I honestly didn't realize the original PS4s even had USB 3. They are also finally adding custom wallpapers via screenshots. About damn time. The wallpapers in the online store are complete garbage. I'd still prefer to use my own .jpg files like on the PS3, but modders used that feature as a way to hack the system which is why we never got the functionality in PS4. Using a screenshot is completely fine with me.

      For only $150 the Hori’s Tactical Assault Commander (TAC) Pro will give everyone on ps4 a huge advantage with mouse and keyboard controls. According to the box art of the product it is officially licensed by Sony and it's being sold at Gamestop and amazon. But if this is actually officially licensed then why doesn't Sony just allow keyboard and mouse input directly to the console so people don't have to pay $150?

      Sony officially announced the "PlayStation 4 Pro" today:
      No longer called the PlayStation Neo, the PS4 Pro will give us 4k gaming and HDR. I don't have a 4K tv so I'm in no rush to get one of these myself.
