PS3 service taken down after seven years

PlayStation Home goes offline

Sony has officially shut down PlayStation Home, with the service concluding its final stretch run yesterday.

As previously announced by Sony, March 31st, 2015 would be PlayStation Home’s last day online. Indeed, the PS3 service has gone dark as of just a few moments prior to publishing.

The firm stopped publishing new content for the virtual world prior to the start of this year, and has stated on multiple occasions that it has no plans to bring any kind of successor to its current console or handheld hardware.

PlayStation Home launched in 2008, and was praised as a commercial success by nDreams – a studio that developed mini-games and more cosmetic downloadable content for PS Home before moving on to work on VR-related projects.
