PlayStation Home has been open since December 11th 2008, providing over 7 years of service to many dedicated fans of the platform.
By way of a post on the official Playstation Forums this announcement for Playstation Home’s closure was made.
“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 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 would like to thank all of our fans for their support of the PlayStation Home platform over the years.”
So, it’s going to come as a shock for the hardcore, faithful Home users that Sony is following up from the closure of the Japanese version of PS Home, and is closing the American and European Home servers on March 31, 2015. That’s right, Playstation Home will be no more, and all that content you purchased will be gone forever.
