While PlayStation Home will be officially closing its doors on March 31, 2015 and will never make its way onto the PS4, PlayStation’s former Home Architect Oscar Clark said that he believes that the service was a “massive success.”
It was a massive success that everyone thinks was a failure. Although it wasn’t as successful as it could have been for a variety of reasons. Getting a clear strategy was difficult and it ended up being a compromise. That said, it was a pretty effective compromise in most cases. We did see a gradual evolution towards making a much more playable experience, a bigger range of games.
Clark continued to say that with its large amount of games and content, such as being able to “play bloody Wipeout in PlayStation Home” — he was referring to Sodium 2 here — that Home was an overall fun and successful service. He did note that it had its problems, however, such as not delivering all of the content PlayStation had said it would deliver.
Overall, what do you think of PlayStation Home? Are you sad to see it officially disappear next year?
