    OG is raising money to form a non profit community interest company enabling us to preserve more history than ever before!

    Unfortunately, like most things in life this is going to cost money and we're asking for some help from the community. All users will be given donator status, along with early updates and depending on how much you help us with we'll try to chuck in some free merch!

    This will cost us roughly $850 for two years including business address/phone number etc which is needed to register a business bank account within the UK.

    You can help us by making a custom pledge, or by making a general pledge as it all helps us greatly. We're happy for a one time donators via Ko-Fi, Patreon asks monthly so please be aware. To prevent charge backs we're unable to accept Paypal at this time. Although once live this will be sorted too!

    One time donations can be sent via our Ko-Fi,



    Or for monthly please visit our Patreon, Ko-Fi is preferred as they charge us less fee's. Become a Patron of Obscure Gamers!

Hi eveyrone.

Today is a special day for PS3 users, some very talented PS Home enthusiast actually successfully bring Home back to life using an offline mode.

Look the results:

It is compatible with RPCS3 and DEX PS3

For now we can only loads beta version of the Harbour studio, the square home and the theatre.

All of those improvements comes from a tool named: HDK (Home Development Kit)

But the version we have is outdated and can only work with .BAR files (which is a tiny baseline) and as such, can't load the contents present in the archive that was taken in 2015.

That's why we need your help.

Having a more recent HDK would allows us to load ANY maps and have a complete offline HOME experience.

Hope you will help us to bring this fantastic experience back again on PS3s and PCs.

The curent HOME version working with the HDK we have is 0.89.

Good to hear and look forward to more progress, I'm keen to have a tutorial regarding the existing hdk and home builds that work if possible. Cheers

AMAZING!!! I have the most recent version of Playstation Home on my PS3 as well as a bunch of the game unlockables but I can't really mod my console without the risk of having my main account banned. Any ideas on how I could rip this stuff for all of you? (If it's even something that you guys need)

There are a few ways. You could do a system backup. Then install HEN and use an FTP app to dump everything. Then after you have dumped everything you could reinstall OFW twice, then restore to factory defaults, then restore the backup.

TBH you would not even need to do all that. While FTP is running you could just go in and delete everything related to HEN on hdd, that will not be much as you will not have used it for anything. Then remove the FTP app and reinstall OFW twice.

Also you could make sure to never sign in or even use the important account during the whole process.

Eh, I got locked out of my original PSN account, (which I played PS Home with back in the day,) and had to make a new one and I had worked on my PS Home Avatar a lot on the old one. Also, it was fun cuz it was online and I hung out with a friend on it a lot, especially when they had the E3 room every June. Unfortunately, it wouldn't be the same for me...
