Sony shut down the PlayStation Home servers a few years ago, but fans decided to restore the initiative. Thanks to their own servers, they managed to revive the project and now players can spend their free time together.
PlayStation Home is a very ambitious endeavor by Sony that has been in development since 2005. The Japanese allowed PlayStation 3 owners to create their own avatars, and then those interested could spend time in the virtual world. Beta Home took place in December 2008, the project was in development until November 12, 2014, and the servers were completely shut down on March 31, 2015.
However, players decided to remind about PlayStation Home and, as in the case of Motorstorm, they set up their own servers – Destination Home Team and PSONE communities worked together to invite fans to PS Home:
“Greetings to Home Veterans!” Today was a huge event for Destination Home Team x PSOne Emulation Team as we finally reached a point in our development where the lobby sessions work on the original PlayStation 3! “
Those interested have set up their own servers, so now players can join public or private lobbies and then hang out in PlayStation Home. Below you can check the material that shows the return of the project.
