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.
