So it looks like the launch date for Home has been set and October it is. That is after they have had a large Beta including 50 000 people.
They are currently finalising the in-Home advertising which they promise will be subtle which would be a very good thing.
They are also trying to make the environments persistant so that when you are offline your online apartment is still there. If they get that right how long do you think it will take before someone squats in someone else’s house 🙂
Sony plans to launch its ambitious PlayStation 3 Home environment – announced at GDC last week – this October, and expects the initial free download to weigh in at “under 500MB”, with subsequent patches “hopefully” integrated via a streaming solution “that makes them negligible”.
A closed beta phase for around 15,000 users will take place between April and August, with an open beta for 50,000 or so operating between August and October.
