I think we all saw this coming.
We haven't heard anything about Sony's virtual world, PlayStation Home, in quite some time. And unfortunately, this was indeed prelude to bad tidings: As Sony has revealed , Home will be shut down next year in the US, Canada and Europe.
Sony says this closure is due to a "shifting landscape," so there will be no new content for Home after November 12. Users have until December 3 to download any content they want, and the complete shutdown happens on March 31, 2015. Those who stick with the service until that time will receive some free, currently unspecified content (obviously not for Home). The news comes not long after Sony Computer Entertainment Japan announced a shutdown of Home's Asian services.
Home ran for six years and it was quite the ambitious project. It came a long way during that span of time but recently, I think we've all started to notice its dwindling popularity.
