With Wii, avatars on console became fashionable. Xbox had its own puppets and Sony created a kind of social environment where friends could interact. We refer, of course, to PlayStation Home, a hub that worked for years on PS3, but was closed more than five years ago. The offline version is now available through an emulator, but the group Destination Home now assures that they will reconnect the game before the end of the year.
“PlayStation Home was one of the first social games on consoles, which we all loved and enjoyed,” you can read on the official website. “Unfortunately, It was closed on March 31, 2015. Destination Home tries to recover what has been lost to preserve the game in a playable state ”. They explain that they do not accept donations or charge anything, since it is a free video game.
Mythical spaces have come to life
Destination Home has just released a new trailer in which they claim that players will be able to connect online to Home, both in public and private rooms. The users themselves have donated information about their personal Home data, which has allowed the team to resurrect spaces that were within the official application, which includes the Hub, the bowling alley, the park and the possibility of personalizing apartments.
The project is not supported by Sony, as there is no link between the project team and PlayStation. Home was launched in December 2008 with the idea of creating a interactive and interconnected environment between different users.
It has also been confirmed that the PSONE group has just reactivate the Motorstorm online mode, another of the games in the historical catalog of PlayStation 3. The servers have been dead for more than a decade, since the Japanese decided to close them in a distant year 2010.
