Sony scraps PSP’s PlayStation Room

Having announced in September last year that it was developing a portable version of PS3 Home for PSP users, Sony has now confirmed that it has scrapped the project.

Dubbed PlayStation Room, the service was supposed to offer a virtual world that allowed for portable interaction on the go, sharing pictures and blog posts and creating avatars.

It was scheduled to arrive by the end of 2009.

However, Andriasang spotted an update to Room’s official site stating that all development of the service has been cancelled, bringing the closed beta to an end. No reason was given, though Sony added that it would be using the feedback gained from the beta for future projects.

The natural question to ask is whether its demise is linked to the performance of PSP or the performance of PlayStation Home?
