If Home is carried over, it'll be the same Home. Rehauling thousands of items isn't feasible and 90% of Home's userbase wouldn't stick around if they lost all their stuff. Home would only undergo visual changes through core updates and new clothing items.

OMG Really another one of these threads? There is a little program when you load into home. Verify purchases guess what that does? Why would they not honor items what we have already have paid for? Has sony themselves said any of this? NO this is all speculation coming form people here. The very last thing they would want to do. Is too really anger their customer base with this release. Because if they did then their console sales would be hit real hard. If you remember they are still having lackluster sales for the vita. So there not going to do this for the obvious reasons.

 

They have however hinted there would be a new paid subscription service that will replace plus. Maybe just maybe home will be out of beta. It may be part of this new subscription service. If they do that they would hardly not let us keep what we already paid into this..

Now it would be a dumb idea to drop Home, but it seems clear that the project we call Home will not last much longer.

Even if Home dies with PS3, they won't pull the plug as soon as PS4 comes out. The majority aren't early adopters and will wait a year or two before moving on. If Home's servers are shut down, I imagine it has another 2 or so years left. Sony wouldn't be updating Home if they planned to abandon it anytime soon.

 

If Home is moved to PS4, sometime in the future there may be an update that renders Home inaccessible to PS3 users, to take advantage of PS4's superior hardware.

IMO they did the cloud thing to prepare for testing Home on PS4

 

I don't believe in coincedences

Personally, I would spend less time worrying about if Home will be available on the PS4, and a lot more worried about Home not even lasting on the PS3 in a year or so from now.

 

Based on Sony's official statements about how Home is no longer a priority (yes, they said that - Google it)...

...and how they have largely stopped creating any new content for Home (its almost all from 3rd party devs now).

...and how they have largely stopped running events (most have been from other devs, like Lockwood).

...and how the stability of Home has only gotten worse, not better.

...and how their support and communication for their customers has been increasingly worse over the last couple years.

...and how they have done almost no promotion for Home over the last couple years.

...and how they have made no statement reassuring customers that they have no plans to end Home any time soon.

...and how more developers and sponsors have left Home than have been added.

 

All of these things strongly suggests Home is closer to ending than many of us thought.... That or Sony is doing a horrible job managing Home and communicating with their customers.

 

Either way we are suffering because of it.

Sony's PlayStation Home updated mission statement...


"Like it never happened"


- Stand for something better than mediocrity and don't disguise it as adequate, when clearly it is far from that to anyone willing to be objective and unbiased. -

Still providing core updates contradicts that.

Events and the such are handled by the SCEA. Sony's central office is in Japan and Japan Home has no shortage of events. I think it's a case of SCEA being neglectant. SCEE has way better communication too.

Now I know Home will be on ps4.  Thanks for clearing that up.  Anything you say is just the opposite of reality.
