Home Delayed, Closed Beta Expanding, Open Beta for Fall
"We understand that we are asking PS3 and prospective PS3 users to wait a bit longer, but we have come to the conclusion that we need more time to refine the service to ensure a more focused gaming entertainment experience than what it is today," said Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. "Our overarching objective is to provide users with new gaming experiences that are available only on PLAYSTATION Home. Spending more time on the development and on the Closed Beta testing reaffirms our commitment to bringing a quality service, maintaining the PlayStation(R) tradition."
Home continues to be one of the PlayStation 3's most ambitious projects in development and has already suffered numerous delays. Coincidentally, LittleBigPlanet, the game revealed side-by-side with Home, has also suffered the same amount of delays. Let's hope that the open beta of Home is large enough to get a whole bunch of us in.
