SCEE's refused to confirm or deny a Times Online report yesterday that said Home's open beta was to launch in the next ten days.
"Not commenting" = probably not...at least for Europe. I'm sure the Open Beta will hit US on that day and Europe will get it shortly after.
Forget it. Expect SCEE to mess us all around some more and give us nothing in return except high prices and silence.
You guys do seem to get the shaft a lot in terms of $$$ and timing, but at least you will have access to PlayTV. We won't see that here in NA
I just think SCEE doesnt want to say anything cos things are getting really tight now, if Sony doesnt release Home in 10 days time then it probarly wouldnt be a good idea to release untill the new year. If it were to be released so near to Christmas and the servers went belly up cos of the overload wat with many ppl not working during the Holiday period it could seriously get stupid. The way it is now Sony have 10 days to make good thier promise of year end release or release it very late in the year & risk a ton of problems & embarrisment.
The Home community manager (Ted the Dog) confirmed launch prior to Christmas for the EU (15 days), so regardless if the rumour is true or false, you'll have a maximum of a 15 day wait, but Id expect it to launch on a Thursday to coincide with most PSN launches. Closest Thursday to chrismas (ignoring Christmas day itself) is the 18th, which funny enough, is 10 days from now o.O
and then start a trend each year where you give gamers something for free on Christmas morning.
Europe at least are getting their store update on Christmas Eve (Wednesday) instead so at the very latest we could see it then.
You know...if people would stop pestering Sony, they'll release information soon enough.
Like heck they would. If people weren't 'pestering' them, they wouldn't bother sharing any news at all.
No thanks :)
you don't even have a PS3.
Yes I do own a PS3...I own all 3 consoles and HOME is nothing but vaporware. I moved on.
like I would believe that. I own a Leprechan who grants me wishes.
LMFAO believe it or not.
I know you have a PS3 Patchstation 3 Lol man, people think you dont own one because your so pro xbox and seemingly anti-sony But hey man, people dont believe i have a 360 Elite because i bash the 360 SO much lmao people are too stupid to realise, im bashing the xbots and still loving my 360 (l4d and fable II FTW) but loving and playing my PS3 10x more Its aaaaaaall good :D
I tried to post some pics but this stupid website wont let me put JPEG formats. Oh well.
just take your time SONY, it fine with me cause i believe in time you'll be able to delivered an awesome Social Networking App.
but do understand the backlash they would recieve, their engineers must be working 24/7 right now so home can be released this month albeit in a nowhere near complete project, but as stated home will evolve and no doubt become an immense platform for sony its a free app so people should be grateful
We'll it's confirmed for launch prior to Christams (EU), SCEE probably are afraid to confirm the rumour for fear launch may slip a day or two and they face another internet backlash.
2see how HOME will handle the full load when it goes public i just want to play chess and be able to play my own music while i do so.....also....if i can play my own music when i walk around HOME that will make it much better for me. Over lay of my music is huge. i havent read much about HOME but when it comes im sure to check it out im really looking forward to seeing where it goes from here....or if it goes anywhere for that matter its a huge idea by Sony and i give them credit for that alone. If they make it work it will be somewhere for the fanboys to hang a hat
look at that someone turning down free stuff classic TOOL
Sony has been talking about Home for years now and to have it in December or sometime next year at this point is moot. I want to run around aimlessly as the next person but I'd much rather have a cohesive product versus something that is not complete and put out to quelch the internet fanboys would be bad. From what I've heard from people beta testing it, it's not all that. Take your time Sony and put Home out when it's ready for public use.
because i have asked atleast 4 ppl on my friends list what they thought. they seemed to like it and like most adults they understood things will come over time I learned about HOME myself around June of 2007! So for me thats a long time but in no way has it been years! When was HOME first talked about? I thought it was Phil E3 2007
why do you even own one if you talk sh!t about it all the time. You're one of the biggest dumb f!cks on this site. You're making everybody's IQ drop everytime you post. You dumb f!cking moron.
I talk bad about what is wrong about each system you moron...Unlike you PS fanboys.
went from a xbot to a droid in a week lol what a looser!! that is one pathetic fanboy right there lmao! @Magic_The_Celt yeah i just play the sims on my ps3rd instead of vaporware home.
Huh? i already got home (pssst its boring as hell to use)
I certainly hope not. Home is far from complete. It still needs lots more work and it being released in 10 days would be ridiculous.
i dont mind, im in the beta
home is the best thing yo console people who are saying they have home and it boring i really did not no u had the full beta man please tell me whats that red bull space like ?
They Not commenting because more then likely not coming... Will See Home outside of Beta when the PS4 comes alone maybe 10 years Dev time will be long enough...
If this rumor was just bullsh!t. Sony would say its just a rumor.
Yeah, Sony is trying to deliver a great product and not rush it
