Is "Home" coming home on the next PS3 update?

55 second read

Well that is the rumour at least. The next PS3 update (v2.0) will include browser improvements, moving icons for movies and games (?) and a choice of getting Home.

What I don’t understand is if Home is such a great new feature for the PS3 why is it optional? That has never been Sony’s strategy before and personally I don’t see it happening now.

I am guessing Home will be released with the version 2 firmware update but I don’t expect the next update to be version 2…. Hedging my bets so to say 😉

So who is looking forward to downloading a couple of hundred megs so that you can dance around a virtual world?

    Well to me home looks like a pure online thing , and at the moment lots of ps3’s arent even online , so that is probably why it is optional.

    🙂 But I would take a guess that 100% of all PS3’s that connect to the internet to download the update are online…

    Oh wait you can download from a pc and transfer the update as well…. Okay so 80% then 😉

    Coupla hundred meg, Lazy? The way downloads on Live and PSN are at the moment with just demos is suggestive that it may lean towards a gig or two. Oh, well, it should be interesting…now if only more South African’s got on PSN…
