PlayStation Home is closing


PlayStation Home is to close.

The service has been running since 2008 and while it never took off with some, according to Sony "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, although 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," says Sony.

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

Here's a FAQ for those affected.

I never liked it anyway so I never got into it. So glad now that I had the good sense to see it for what it was, just another Sony money making machine with overpriced tat! Not good news for the poor saps who did invest a lot of time and money in it though. Shame on you Sony. FAQ Q: What happens to all of the PlayStation Home content that I have earned and bought?

Oh hang on........

It made Sony a profit over it's lifetime, so clearly it was at least some level of successful.

Please describe the nature of the abuse:
