If PS Home is gone for good, what about for the users who never played this game?

If PS Home is gone for good, what about for the users who never played this game? 

 

I know that Sony closed PS Home somewhere on the 31st of March 2015 (I don't really remember when)

 

My cousin's PS3 still has PlayStation Home under the "PlayStation Network" section, which means that he never ever played PS Home since he got his PS3. 

 

If he downloads it, will he still be able to earn trophies or is that the end of PS Home and its servers?

I really don't think that it's gonna be happen. 
SONY it's closing a lot of PS3 services and PSHOME it's one of them.

Just don't bother about that.

It's dead. I doubt it'd even load. 

 

Try it and see.

If you try booting up PlayStation home you will get a message saying the servers are shut down and a thank you to those that played.

It doesn't work anymore. I've always felt like it was a huge missed chance...

I remember always playing Home with my cousin back in 2008. All we did was sit in the square and play chess mind you.

Verified. This is all you'll get:

It's not like it was worth trying out anyway. But if that's your thing, you could always play Second life - if that still exists.

A "lot"? All they closed between 2015 and 2016, IIRC, is Home and the Facebook integration. I wish they removed that SingSpam icon (urgh), though.

There is actually The Sims 3 on PS3, But was really meant for PC (EA Origin) like The Sims 4.

there was also many sims games on the ps2, psp like sims 1, sims 2 (the ps2 version had the best gameplay of all platforms IMO), castaway, etc and some others for ps3 but i think he was talking about a ps4 version, which its been rumored that its coming out some time soon.

 

anyways getting back on topic i have so many good memories about ps home, it was so fun to play mini games with other people and that the environment changed every week with new stuff and mini games about upcoming games and movies, also having your own apartment and having the choice to decorate it with prizes that you won with mini games you played was also amazing!!

also seeing things like trailers with other people in the "theater section", visiting actual game scenarios taken from actual games like the african village from resident evil 5 and visiting the virtual E3 every year was also really cool.

 

i miss it so much, i wish sony did something similar for the ps4...

The Sims 2: Castaway was pretty good too. But I found it hard to find all of my friends after the boat wrecked.

yeah i actually never finished it lol i was too young when i played it and i didn't understood what to do next, but i remember it was fun.

 

if they do a ps4 version i wish they have the option to play it with the same gameplay as the ps2 games, i played every version of it and the ps2 was the most fun to me because the gameplay was so different than the pc version and to me it was way better controlling the characters with the left stick and moving around freely, instead of the somewhat restricted point-and-click gameplay from the pc version.

It baffles me that they still haven't realized that was a terrible idea. Especially considering it's on the bloody "Game" section.

I can recommend you The Four Kings Casino and Slots, it is pretty much the only thing that resembles PS Home on the PS4 and it is free to download. I miss PS Home even with it's flaws, made very close friends there that I still talk to to this day!

I remember playing it to a lot, i met a guy who spended like €2,5K on that game. can't imagine how he must have felt when they anounced it was gonna be shut down.

Anyway, i always had a blast playing it and had lots of nice conversations. and even though the game itself wasn't all that stunning, there was still lots to do and new updates came out a lot.

At least i can say i'm one of the persons that got this on a 100%. cuz no game, is no trophies.

I knew someone who had never played this before and they tried to start it after the servers closed and if I remember correctly it displayed a message saying the servers were down and then it stopped loading and that was it.
