GameSpot writes: "Sony's Home is one of the most highly anticipated titles on the PlayStation 3, and it has the potential to revolutionize the way users interact online. However, there's no doubt it's taken a long time to come to fruition. At the Sony E3 2008 press conference, the company reiterated Home's importance to the platform and promised that it would release an open beta in the third quarter of 2008.
Home is designed to bring together Sony's three key interests: gaming, music, and movies. The home square is the embodiment of this intention and houses a gaming arcade, a movie theatre, a music zone, as well as shops and meeting areas."
