    The link I posted below is the Playstation blog Ultimate Game list for PS4 2014. Ther is no mention of PSHOME on PS4 even in the "TBA" (To Be Announced) section. Some people have mistaken the listing of Benjamin River's Indie Horror game called"Home" as a PSHOME listing but it's not. Sid Shuman replied to posted question #15 if you scroll down the blog pages message board under the list. All I can say is,"Sob" :arghh:

    Thou doest realize that ANY mention of Home on PS4 on here is PURELY speculation and a Homeling's Dream? Sony has yet to say whether or not they will be releasing a 'new' Home or will port the current version. Until they decide to tell us one way or the other, we can only presume Home WILL NOT be making the transition to 'Next-Gen'.

      they have a new freebie out, just like the page, click ok, select your region and get your very own Unique PSN code.

      [NOTE: this is a one time use only code and says its a Hand Item, LKWD HQ dropped the ball on editing the redeem part of the page. it's really a head item.]

      Here is the reward from the pic thread in NA and EU. If you submitted a photo it should be in your inventory as of today.

      A whistle, booing.....and the red card! Kind of a cool little LMO really.

        OMG!!! I finally get the red card that I didn't get for NA and EU! XD

        (Too bad, I didn't get the chance to get the red card in Japan either. Ran out of points, but it was okay. I had all yellow cards for every region I had during the event. Home Asia though, I got the red card from their last quiz.) :p

        Hi Everybody....Being new here I'm not really sure what Threads are really relevant at this time :) So I just am picking and choosing the ones that look interesting to me.....What I am wondering most of all is Why would Sony choose to keep spaces such as the "Community Theaters" up and running especially when Nobody is ever there....In My exploration of the core Public Spaces...I noticed most of the screening rooms are always empty....Is It that people grow tired of Spaces So quickly? I mean I'm a new Member Of Home and am enjoying the "Single Player" experience so far... But if Home is Truly a Social experience I'm either not seeing it or Maybe am just to late in the Grand experience Sony had hoped would be a resounding success a little more than 8 years ago..... Mind you I'm enjoying it as I said...but with so many Spaces empty... Could the End Be Near?

          Many of them used to go to Community Theaters if rewards were on hand, but ever since that many people have already got them, and minus Sony putting in newer content, as like new PS3/PS4 trailers on games, movies, and E3 stream events as such in the past, it had a terrible decline. Only those shows like Crackle, Platinum'd, and PST's Community Theater movies still runs the theaters.

          Interestingly enough....It seems like Sony Has Abandoned Home to some degree then....Because if I'm reading your response correctly....People usually go to places where there are Rewards available for the time being... Get them then it's See ya around Charlie Tuna!....That's sad really.....Even looking on the Home Cross media bar it looks like certain spaces lose prominence and are literally buried at the bottom of the list..If I were one of the Digital Media People At Sony...I would be thinking " Okay....How can we as a company keep older spaces relevant and exciting?" Maybe less rewards and UPDATED CONTENT Each Month or so....

          This is a complex subject. It starts with the question, "Is Sony going to continue Home on the PS4?". Most seem to think not. However, no one knows for sure as Sony is dead silent on the subject.

          We can, however, look at the facts.

          - The frequency of new public spaces being added has slowed.
          - Some developers, who used to push out weekly releases, have either stopped entirely or slowed dramatically
          - Innovative feature-rich personal spaces have disappeared
          - Problems that discourage new users from staying around are not being fixed (purchases from the store, lag, freezes, etc.)


          As to the theaters, my opinion is, the only reason anyone went to them ever, was to get rewards. The content was never that compelling. It's too easy for us to go to YouTube to see the latest game or movie trailer. The "home grown" content (videos made by those favored by Sony) has never been good. And that is all that is left there now.

          Spaces made by developers to push a new game seldom have any shelf life past the initial release. When there is no money in it, a developer isn't going to update it.

          So while the future looks dim for Home, all those of us who love it can do is enjoy what we have while we still have it.

            That's very true Karen.... What I think is the saddest of all though is That Home for all intents and purposes as a viable thriving product has seen better days....Do I personally Enjoy it?....Yes!....But the Open Minded Skeptic in me Says is it worth spending x amount of dollars for clothing housing furniture etc and so on just to years on down the line lose everything when Home has it's swan song? I feel sad for the older members such as you and Carla and others who have invested so much just to lose it all because of Sony's bad business foresight... Where do we go then?....Second Life?...IMVU?....

            I once loaded Second Life and after using it for 10 minutes, deleted it. Never went back. The UI was confusing. I'm sure if you use it for a while, you can learn it and get used to it. However I also found the graphics to be of lesser quality than PS Home.

            Also, at one time, SL was the darling of the corporate set. It got some big names on it. They have all since gone.

            I still have Second Life, but haven't used it too much. I usually use it to watch stream movies or gambling, or meet my online friends from fur conventions. I still need to update it though.
