Sony prepares to close the doors on the Japanese version of Toro’s Friend Network this coming March, and we’ve got the details on how it’s going down.
With the recent announcement of a worldwide shutdown of PS3’s PlayStation Home app this March, it seems like Sony is cleaning house on some of its lesser used and run-their-course services. The newest of these services to reach the proverbial chopping block is the Japanese version of Toro’s Friend Network.
A PlayStation Vita launch title in Japan, this December the sale of currency for the title will be suspended in the region – though there will be a last promotion to let users grab the last items before the doors shut. Then, this coming March 31st the social networking app will close its doors for good in the Land of the Rising Sun.
While no note of the Western versions coming to an end has been made, if the way the PlayStation Home closure announcement went down is any indication then it won’t be far behind (Japan came out with it first, but they had the same final closure date in the end).
