Updates for Asian territories to cease in March 2014.
As an interactive social media hub of sorts, PlayStation Home allowed players to create avatars and interact with each other in a sort of virtual online world. For all the flak that its received, there are still plenty of Home users out there. Regardless, Sony has announced that updates Home in Japan will cease in September. It has also revealed that the content will end for all Asian territories in March 2014.
Because we couldn’t get enough of it as it is. However, markets where Home does see its fair share of users will remain unaffected, as the US and Europe will still receive updates. Considering that there has been some clamouring for Home on the PlayStation 4, it remains to be seen whether this will affect chances of the same. Will it be long before Home is phased out in the West as well? Time will tell.
Sony’s PlayStation 4 launches on November 15th in the US and November 29th in Europe.
