PS Home Special Private Beta Being Sent Out, Adds Teleporter, New Hub and More

TheParanoidGamer: "Well looks like PS HOME is about to launch a special Beta. Today, Sony sent out some invites for a Special Beta that Home will be offering." (Home, PS3)

If this is true will anyone be leaking footage of what is likely for the new Home layout?

Edit:
Footage man! I need footage!

Not like I can't wait until they actually release the thing :p

(Unlike some people who only say "Can't wait" for something that doesn't even have a release date...)

It's nice actually. Only started it and had to turn it off, but there are some changes.
Nitrowolf2  +   1171d ago
I think my BETA messed up :( I don't have Teleporter option like the message said

Check your storage...it's likely in there...it's an appliance you have to place in your home space redecoration menu.

Nitrowolf2  +   1171d ago

Once a time ago i got a secret beta invite to PS Home, i was like 1 of 500 or summin, it was for testin some new interface, it was a year or so ago, anyway, i mentioned it on N4G (comment section) and b4 you know it some slag grassed me up (to who-ever i dont know) and i got denied access to that feature on PS Home

If you think im lyin troll through all my comments, itll be there somewhere

So i wouldnt recommend openin your mouth OR leakin any footage, Sony will f you up man

@ God... it's true. Got my invite. Thinking about buying the camera and uploading footage to youtube.

I've gotten a PSN message regarding this with an attachment. Haven't looked at it yet, but will research it a bit more since it's not from the usual PSN user, but a user by the name of Locust_Star.

Edit: Looks legit considering Locust_Star is the face for Home on PS Blog.

Update: Downloaded and installed and went through the instructions. Currently loading the new beta environments. Will see if there's anything of value here. Normally Home just hasn't been for me.

Update #2: Tried out the new area, still wasn't into it. It's like a much smaller hub with few stores and games. Looks like a bit of a step back, but perhaps they are going to release more over time. There was an activity board that gave out quests, but it broke while I was using it (not a coincidence, I tell you!), which could be neat. The way it was designed, looks like players can create quests for the activity board as well.

Yeah that's what kind of got me. Normally when I get messages from PSN from Sony they are actual names. IDK maybe Locust is his last name, but seems odd. It's definitely real though as the HUB in home been change for me (it didn't show the huge menu) and from what I understand no more loadings now when going to other areas.

I was a bit iffy on the message too. It said I visited PS Home recently... maybe if recent was 2 and a half years ago.
rebirthofcaos  +   1171d ago
well, I got it, was worried was some scam, that why I wait for more confirmation.

well time to download.
darfreeze  +   1171d ago
I want to try it too. :[
Myst  +   1171d ago
Let me in!

Can anyone confirm that the bubble machine is in the private beta?.
Redempteur  +   1171d ago
why would you want that ? don't you want to try the pets instead ?
ScubaSteve1  +   1171d ago
why didnt they add people who were in the orginal beta
Kurisu  +   1171d ago
A Beta of an already existing Beta?

I'm in it. Played around with it a bit, but haven't had time to really dig into it. Looks good, thus far. The FPS runs fairly well, but still needs a bit of work.
mindedone  +   1171d ago
I don't know how I'm a part of it, does having things automatically download count as me visiting Home?
Nitrowolf2  +   1171d ago
IDK I suppose your PS+ then sothat prob.got you in. You get a message?
mindedone  +   1171d ago
Yeah, I don't think I dl'd anything tho, maybe that's why I didn't see a difference
AstroZombie1  +   1171d ago
*sigh*
Sithlord-Gamble  +   1171d ago
I also got invited. Its not bad, there r some changes: some good, some bad but any change in home is potentially a good change bc its long overdue.
