PlayStation Home: Fans have resurrected Sony’s community space! [VIDEO]

Not many people remember PlayStation Home anymore, but there are those who do, and there are those who have done it to resurrect it.

PlayStation Home was the online community space for Sony Interactive Entertainment’s London studio, then still known as Sony Computer Entertainment. It was launched in December 2008, after nearly four years of development (as early as the beginning of 2005, with the launch of a platform requiring only a PlayStation Network account), but Sony did not push the cart further: it remained in beta until 31 March 2015. closed its gates, it was still in this condition…

A VGC wrote that Destination Home, a group set up to resurrect PlayStation Home, was able to get the community space shot six and a half years ago back on its feet with the help of the PSOne Emulation team and several PlayStation 3 players providing PS Home data from their hard drive. Proof of this can also be seen in the video below, the team says it will be possible to join public and private lobbies by the end of the year. Since Sony’s servers are no longer live, this is certainly a serious job.

The team writes, “Today was a monumental day for Destination Home and the PSOne Emulation team, as we have finally reached the point in our development that full lobby sessions are running on the original PlayStation 3! This means users can join public / private lobbies like in the good old days on PlayStation Home! In this teaser, you can see that we have some of our favorite spaces, e.g. The Hub, Bowling Alley, Playground, etc. which are ready to be rediscovered by our regular fans. Since you guys have provided much-needed Home data on your personal PlayStation 3 consoles, the team would like to thank you for making this possible! ”

We already wrote in August that the Sony has updated its PlayStation Home trademark, which might be built next to the PlayStation VR 2 (or whatever it is called…), so you can enter virtual reality “at home”.
