Bring PlayStation Home to the PS4!

This petition had 574 supporters

PlayStation Home is a virtual 3D social gaming platform developed by Sony Computer Entertainment's London Studio for the PlayStation 3 on the PlayStation Network (PSN). It is accessible on the PS3's XrossMediaBar (XMB). Membership is free and requires a PSN account. Home has been in development since early 2005 and started an open public beta test on December 11, 2008, and has never come out of beta.

"Home" allows users to create a custom avatar, which can be groomed realistically. Each avatar is given a personal apartment that users can decorate with free, bought, or won items. Users can travel throughout the Home world, which is frequently updated by Sony and its partners. Public spaces are made for display, entertainment, advertising, and networking. Home's primary forms of advertising include spaces themselves, video screens, posters, and mini-games. Home also features many single and multiplayer mini-games, and hosts a variety of special events, some of which may provide prizes to players. Users can use won items to further customize their avatar or apartments.

For the last 5+ years, PlayStation Home has brought about exceptionally unique and integrative experiences that its users have come to value, and have grown with.  It's versatility of customization options combined with its chat features have created a wonderful medium and outlet to express individuality, as well as to connect with others in a way that is relatable and fun.

Up to this point, Sony Computer Entertainment, Inc. has remained quiet about the fate of PlayStation Home, not only for it's future existence on the PS3, but whether or not it will ever be offered on the PS4.  This petition is to help let Sony Computer Entertainment know that the users of PS Home are passionate and dedicated to it's continued presence on the PlayStation, and are fully supportive of it's expansion to the PS4, as well as to establish how grateful we would be for some sort of official statement on this matter.

PlayStation Home holds so much more potential to expand on what has already been created by excellent developers, as well as to maintain existing features that have shaped what could be referred to as the Home experience.  All signers of this petition are looking to Sony Computer Entertainment to take the initiative of giving PS Home users the attention and answers they are looking for and deserve.
