    Default NO room for PlayStation ROOM

    Sony closes door on PlayStation Room

    by JC Fletcher { Apr 15th 2010 at 11:45AM }
    At TGS last year, Sony introduced PlayStation Room, a Home-like social networking service for PSP that allowed players to create cute avatars, decorate virtual spaces, and interact with friends via chat and blogs. Today, following the end of a Japan-only closed beta, Sony announced that it's ceasing development on the service. That infinity symbol in the logo just got nicely ironic.

    In the announcement, Sony thanked beta testers for their feedback and said that it planned to use the data gathered to enrich PlayStation Network services. Mind you, if said feedback resulted in the immediate closure of the project, it could't have been easy to read.
    so Room is DEAD,


    PSP 1.5 got on USA first day is was 1.5 NOW 4.01 M33-2 -> 5.00 M33-6(1.50 addon),

    It a good idea to have "Hide extensions for known file types" in Folder Options(under Tool) unchecked (turn on extensions)

    I wouldn't have used it and I think that a lot of other people wouldn't have used it either so I'm not surprised that it got cancelled

    Sony needs to focus on a predecessor to the PSP, one with more security and more emphasis on gaming and not social media.

    Don't they know they they've already messed up too much with the PSP to the point where they're probably not going to save it?
