The future of Sony's ambitious virtual world PlayStation Home looks very uncertain.
Kotaku reports that Sony Japan has confirmed that there will be no further updates to the Japanese version of PlayStation Home from September, with no new content being added beyond that point.
Support in other Asian regions will end in March 2014.
The platform holder says that PlayStation Home content will continue to be released in Europe and North America, although how long this will continue to be the case remains to be seen.
PlayStation Home has been conspicuous by its absence from any of Sony's PS4 announcements and it's looking like a safe bet that the platform will not be making the generational leap.
