    PlayStation Home closes today - bothered?

    I never did play around that much with PlayStation Home. It had great promise but was more about the social connectivity than the great social games that I expected. At least it was when I stopped mooching around.

    Still, they'll be some sad folk around today

    I played it at first but then very quickly grew bored of it, never played it for years, not going to shed a tear so will move on!

    I thought it was already shut down. It was a neat idea but a lot of the things weren't followed through. I think only Everybody's Golf 5 used Home's features properly which included matchmaking from within the Home EG5 lounge, plus more - it was so well done, just a shame that no other developer followed suit.

    I always forget this thing exists until the one or two articles a year remind me of it.

    It's a neat little idea but was extremely impractical.

    Game Room is no where anything like this, and is still running today. Its just like a virtual MAME emulator for old arcade games.

    Amazing they did not port this over to the PS4. PS Home brought in so much revenue. Crazy how much money people spend on fake $#@!.

    Is this just anecdotal because I cant find anything about it making serious dosh for Sony. Quite the opposite, it made money for a lot of third party sellers.
    I couldn't believe they would close something that was making decent amounts of money.

    I was one of those people. I saw the 2007 GDC demo and 2007 E3 demo and I was sold. I knew about Second Life too and all the things that does, so I thought Home was gonna be a step above Second Life. It had so much potential and the social factor of it was huge, but when it came out, it was just meh. I was kinga hoping I would find my future girlfriend on playstation home, but I can't cheat on my right hand.
