Is "Home" coming home on the next PS3 update?

A juicy rumor has just surfaced on the internet, (you know how much we like rumors around here) and says that the upcoming firmware update, v2.00 for the PS3, will include the "Home" virtual community software.

According to the article posted on, an insider source says that the update will include things such as:

New drivers for surfing the internet and browser improvements
Updated flash player
Two versions of v2.00 - one with Home and one without Home.
Moving icons for movies and games can still move while accessing other content.

feels old, but let's see what the hawks say. *_*

a/w If it flies though, I am looking forward to wasting massive amounts of time with this app. I just hope we don't have to wait too much longer for 2pointOh.

I'd like to set up my virtual streaming VAIO and read and submit articles on N4G from my PSN apartment. That would be so cool, and I'd never turn off the PS3.

However this would mark the end of x360.

poor MS

you think this will be the end of the Xbox 360?... haha your having a bubble!

yeh i admit it is a nice thing to have available on a console, but come on! this kinda thing has been available on lots of websites (aka the PC) for AGES! it doesnt interest me much, and to be honest things COULD get out of hand if parents dont be carefull as i dont expect this even has an age rating, and ya know you cant stop weird people playing it. anyway hoping this kinda thing never happens on the PS3, i have to disagree with you that it will be the end of the Xbox 360.

my friend . You are like Big Ben. The tower not the QB.

This is just a very short speculation on the same rumor. It qualifies as duplicate to me.

Here is the original content from the news:
"The article did not state when firmware v2.00 will be released, but it sounds somewhat genuine since Sony has already set a launch date for Home sometime later this year."

I know I do remember reading that a while ago, hence, that's why I thought it felt a little "old". Sorry man.

The tower is St. Stephens clock tower. The 13 and a 1/2 ton bell that hangs within the tower is called Big Ben.

All i know is, Home will be coming in the next big update, am not talking about the minor updates and the regular scheduled updates every now and then, I mean the update that will require PSN to be down a few hours for all the new features to be available.
