Rumor: Home Hitting "Very Very Very Soon"

We learned late last week that the next update for Warhawk (v1.3) will include PlayStation Home integration, and as you can see, the game's creator is pretty excited about the online service's potential. Basically, this news hints at the possibility of Home launching earlier than expected, but the latest rumor says it's coming out much, much sooner than expected.

According to QJ.net, one of those mysterious "insiders" has popped up with more information that says Home is right around the corner. The excerpt in question comes from a PlayStation forum member, who apparently knows this insider as a contact, and here's what Deep Throat had to say-

"A game must be able to integrate into Home, a game must support "Accomplishments". Right there, two important things, the PS3 system for achievements is called "Accomplishments", and Home is coming out VERY VERY VERY Soon."

Previously, we had heard Sony would be implementing an Achievement system similar to that found on Microsoft's Xbox 360, so this rumor supports that theory as well. But what is most intriguing is that "very very very soon" bit, which could imply any number of things. Could it arrive as early as next month? Well, we'll see what we can find out, and we'll also keep an eye on GDC to see if Sony makes any announcements concerning Home.

As I've been saying since Devil May Cry 4 includes this, if games are starting to include it, then it's likely coming very soon in order to compliment these games. Also with the advertisements late last year that included HOME in their advertisements, it would be good to get these products out even in a beta form instead of delaying them for months on end. Customers want results, and teasing customers is never a bright idea. Delays can be good in some case, but a 'beta' never promises to be the final perfect problem free product. I want HOME as much as anyone else, and I've lived and can live without it. But... Sony needs to step up and deliver simply to maintain a reputation for their ads.

Personally I'm still waiting to hear even the slightest news on WipeOut HD. I could almost believe the project was dropped.

Also, Fatchad420, I think there's a common saying with Sony... Sony doesn't announce anything until there's something to announce. LOL, ie, they probably won't say anything, it'll just appear on the playstation network.

I'm still waiting for the open beta to start. Surely it should be due soon?

i have a feeling there wont be an open Beta, not after the last few weeks and all the information thats been seeping out.

seems theres a lot of reports on HOME and how close it really is, they might just give it to us. ..i'll be happy with that!!

Fatchad420.. how many are in your closed Beta? I know you say you havent heard anything, but then that wouldnt be too unusual if HOME is out 'very' soon.

How much info are you told about the game youre testing? i mean would you know if it was coming out soon or not?

also.. is there a site that you sign up to to become a beta tester, i would love to do that sort of thing!!

anyway, lets hope HOME is on its way!!!

Seems like with the format wars over technically but not "officially" now would be a very good time for Sony to announce how soon we should be getting HOME. I for 1 can't wait to try it out. Hopefully at the GDC they will drop a launch day or something for it :)
