Ripten: "The stars continue to align… Following the dubious 20th March countdown on an unknown website, a somewhat reliable Japanese news source has revealed that the Home Open Beta will begin on March 24th in Japan."
This will mark the beginning of what will pave the way for each online portal across each and every Playstation console and competing console. With the release of Home, Microsoft will finally be forced to concede to the superior designs and infastructure of PLAYSTATION® 3's online network. XBOX Live will finally be offered to their slaves at no charge. By that time, many will have "jumped ship" due to the betrayal of what Microsoft has done to their customers. When the smoke clears, only PLAYSTATION® Home will be the withstanding online platform where everyone can enjoy themselves, have a good time. All you will need to do is purchase a PS3 and Play B3yond. $niper
one person's post on a board of the internet is reliable??? then a somewhat reliable Japanese news source(me), sony is going to release a new firmware patch next Tuesday.
refuse to get my hopes up. Will accept it as soon as i see it on the playstation BLOG>.
The source is as reliable as you can get.
Better open up a Japanese account.
what i was thinking (loads up ps3 for japanese account). oh noooo its in japanese i dont understnad what its saying
thats my b-day
lol guess even birthdays can't be trusted scottie i doubt it will be releasing in Japan only. Considering its an SCEE prodution if it is going to hit Japan on the 24th of march then US and EU should get it either before or around the same time or slightly after. + or - one week both ways
good thing i opened a japanese account so i could get GT4... now Home.. Sweet... to bad i won't understand anyone on there.
Honestly I could care less when Japan gets it; when do we get it?
When Japan gets it could be a very good sign of when the rest of the world gets it.
True but it could also be months after Japan gets it that we get it. I mean good news no matter what if it is true but knowing when Japan gets it doesn't necessarily mean anything for those of us in the U.S. or anywhere else for that matter.
well its unknown website and not ecxactly came from sony the annoucement so im having a doubt about this, but its cool if home is going to release that early in japan
is gonna be huge and I dont mind waiting if that means them getting this right. Patience is a virtue that not many gamers have....chill out peeps its coming and its gonna be great.
When you think about it... Sure, it comes out on the 24th in JAPAN. But there's nothing saying that it won't come out earlier in US or europe? Or at the same time? This is a japanese source, he dosen't know anything about SCEE or SCEA.
good for you
With all the rumors on the net, with the countdowns, releases and open beta... why Sony don't give a real date or debunk the rumors? It would be simple if the rumors were'nt true. So i guess there's a little truth in all the rumors. Let's hope.
I'll be glad when SCEA gives the word on when the NA open beta will start.
That would be really great. I wish they'd stop dragging their feet on this and give us some damn information.
dude, you work for ripten or something? you seem to always get their stories first! Eitherway, hope this is true but ive got my hopes up to many time already.
So does this mean those not in Japan but have a Japanese account can participate in the beta too?
Perhaps.... but still rather useless if you dont speak/read Japanese.
Normaly you should be able to use it with a Japanese account, the home beta will be on the japan-Store. You wont be able to read everything, but u still can play the mini-games, make yourself an appartment, play chess and bowling, etc.
It would be a challenge in itself to get it to work in Japanese but I'm hoping there will be a language option somewhere.
Its developed in londom so maybe we will get it then or sooner!
I just hope that this will be released in all regions at the same time, could only imagine what it'd be like if it turns into another GT5 Prologue, out in Japan for months before anywhere else.
hopefully its as good as they say, it'll b better if u could attack sum1 or hav a boxin match with them at a gym of sum sort, or if u could hav sum 'HOME'-less xbox fanboys livin in cardboard boxes outside shop doorways wishin they bought a PS3, i better stop there, my imagination runs a bit wild sum times, if i had it my way itll be called 'MANHUNT/HOME', Quality...
Woot its on my B-day What a suprise :)
