What the hell is the meaning of this and why was this decided ?

 

No one reply, this question is for an SCE offical to answer only.

Does this mean 3rd party content like Granzella won't be added to Japan, or just that Sony will no longer produce content for Japan?

Either way, it's not good news and can only worry how long it will be before the same happens here and in Europe.

Seems this is another step going in the wrong direction for Home and eventually won't see it coming to PS4 and end it's service in a year or 2.

^ I asked myself that same question, but since it isn't exactly specified, I think they mean all content updates will be halted for those regions completely, whether third party or first party.

It really isn't good news. The weekly content updates have become the oxygen for the service. You take away that and....yeah...

Also I might I add, "SCEA and SCEE will continue to fully support their PlayStation Communities" doesn't mean exactly what it says. I see it as "We'll let them decide to tell you when content updates stop rather than break the news to you ourselves"

Over the years I've met Home users from Japan who said that they prefer being here rather than Japan. I've also seen people post how wonderful the content for Japan Home was, but they also saw less users.

 

So this news makes sense.

 

I wouldn't be surprised if we had a very minor population explosion.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.
