    Playstation Home shutting down March 31, 2015!

    Not sure how many members here use Playstation Home, but Sony have announced that Playstation Home will shut its doors March 31st, 2015.

    From November 12, members will not be able to make in-game content purchases. Until then, players who stick with the service will receive free content as a token of Sony's gratitude - according to Sony.
    "You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall.
    But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders."

    I spend an hour or so in PlayStation Home in like 2008... It seemed pointless. Anybody here have a more recent opinion of it?
    BizarroGoogle It's like a weird, backwards inefficient Google Search.

    I used to go on PS Home back in 2008 as it was quite cool and kind of reminded me of the sims a little but it was also kind of a one trick pony kind of thing.

    I might log into it though just to see what its like.

    Last I logged into it was probably a couple of months ago. It has gotten better, but the community kind of kills it as it's just a bunch of 20-30 somthings hitting on 14-15 year old girls.

    That's kinda making me wish it was ALREADY closed! It will not be missed.

    I'm guessing a lot of people were in the same boat, honestly. There was no point to it other than that.

    I did try to find one on Youtube but so far I haven't found anything other than a distrusting set of comments.

    Pardon my ignorance but in all the years I've owned by PS3, I've never heard of this until now…

    I can only presume it's another one of these online things – which would explain it. I've never taken my PS3 online…!

    From the looks of things, it doesn't look as though I've missed out on anything anyway.

    Oh well...!

    A Playstation attempt at Second Life I would call it.

    I might have a rough idea why i think it's because of the hackers everyday PS3's are unfairly frozen the fake moderators that's pretty disturbing Sony couldn't fully stamp it out patches for PSH would be released they just go on sites apparently so they say they claim they do hackers would be back on PSH within hours days freezing yet again they should make hackers pay for every PS3 to get fixed that is frozen by them then damaged the system

    To be honest it wasn't all that bad, on any media where you give people open chat access to thousands you're going to get weird and perverted people.

    Granted I've only spent a few hours on Playstation Home over the course of 3-4 years, I've had an ok experience. When people use the virtual world right, it can be great. I remember a time when me and a group of people all hung out at one of the player's virtual house. And we just spent the whole time talking about games and such. Sounds boring, but had a great time.

    Unfortunately the perverts seem to out-weigh the casual PS Home "player". Especially over the past two years. It's probably best for PS Home to shut down.

    But it seems like the people behind PS Home want to "start over" again with a very similar project for the, you guessed it, the PS4: NEOTOPIA!

    I tried PSH a couple times. I didn't get what the point was or what it was for. From what I saw, it looked kinda dumb so I stopped going. To this day I have no idea what it was actually for, lol.
    PSX4Central.com Quite possibly the oldest PS community on the net

    PlayStation Home will be missed by the PlayStation Community if Sony minimized the hacking activity on PSH i probably would return to it's last months of service
