Sony has announced that PlayStation Home, which had been part of the PlayStation 3 since 2008, will be closing its doors in March next year.
“Due to a shifting landscape, PlayStation Home will cease publishing new content,” the developer said on the PlayStation Blog. The service will cease to receive new content on 12th November.
“Gamers in Europe will be able to download content until the 3rd of December, 2014,” Sony added, before confusingly noting in its FAQ that “PlayStation Home fans will still be able to download content until 26th November 2014.”
Sony have also announced that none of the money spent within PS Home will be refunded.
“Due to the progressive and innovative nature of the gaming industry, PlayStation is unable to refund on legacy platform or service experiences.”
This isn’t because of the release of the PlayStation 4 either, Sony wont be moving Home to the new consoles, it will be shut down completely.
