We all know that PlayStation Home will close on the 31st of March, and with that news Home Dev Madmunki set about trying to bring a new "Home" to the PS4, this was no small task to try and take on and after missing out on the Kickstarter total that task only got even harder.
After many months of endless sleepless nights trying to bring Neotopia to life, Dave of Madmunki as posted the following blog post.
The last Christmas and New Years in PlayStation Home. Yes, it's sad, however, we are all hoping that it might be the beginning of something better. So, it's Christmas Eve, and I can't help reflecting back on the years we had together on Home and YPSH.
Personally, I am proud of what we accomplished here. It wasn't all perfect, but we did manage to pull off a lot of "firsts" and fun times besides bringing you a place to chat, read up on all that was new and share tips.
I also can't forget the wonderful support we got from the developers. You all were terrific.
So I lift a glass and toast all of you for making YPSH the huge success it was.
So on behalf of Carla, Stacey and myself, may you have the merriest of holidays and may you find much happiness in 2015.
