Mod of official EU Playstation forum commented on one of the thread (line #44):
This is totally rumour and speculation.
Home will not be available to the masses tomorrow.
That is confirmed.
i respect that. Some idiot started spreading rumours and i know it is not true.
Rumours can cause miserably impatient people, blame it on sony. Sony didnt start the rumours. they only announced the version update.
I never listen to rumours and im always patient.
Yeh, please don't ask for it to be rushed or anything. I want a quality <game> when it comes out.
Theres more than enough to keep entertained with until then anyway...
If it gets rushed out, 360 fanboys will jump on the slightest problem with it, and try and discredit the entire thing, which could lead to Sony losing potential players.
That asshole was Phil Harrison, though.. If you'll remember. He said in direct correlation to the guy who asked him about the delay "Yes, but the experience is still going to be there this year. that doesn't change. We're just not launching until the spring officially. The core, basic, gameplay is still going to be enjoyed and experienced by everyone who wishes to partake in it this holiday season"
That is damn near word for word what Phil said at TGS this year...
And of course by my reckoning tommorow is the 1st of January
If Phil said the beta was coming out this year for everyone, then the beta most probably will be out this year for everyone. It doesn't have to be this Thursday
He said it would be out late November Early DEcember do it should probally be out next week.:)
This year could mean any time upto the end of December 2007.

way to use your powers of deduction *claps*
Good things come to those who wait!
kids don`t understand that.
you are completely right.
but then again, he said MASSES.
It's a smart move if the core functionality still isn't up to snuff. Otherwise we'd have a million people who don't understand what it means for something to be in beta complaining about broken things and spreading it out to the rest of the world.
you just explained the reason.
Haha yeah man I've seen it happen far too many times with PC games, people running around "OMG the game crashed this game sucks I'm not buying it!!". Then going everywhere telling everyone the game sucks because of some issues they had during beta. Sony's doing right to delay it until everything works at LEAST the way they outlined it in the trailers. We'll get over the delay but buggy half implemented features in the actual launch will leave a bad impression on people.
this is waiting
Wow.. typical (below) sorry mate my 360 has never broken down.
Waiting for your console to come back from microshit?
..most people have no idea what a beta really is...you test out software fore bugs and should report them...there's already probably loads of idiots who don't help the beta process by never reporting bugs and don't care because they're the first on their block to try our home. It's really a shame that theres loads of people on the PS3 forums waiting for "home open beta". There will be no open beta to everyone, if they did that they might as well just make it a formal launch. It's better that they take their time with this rather then rush to get it out the door and then everyone will complain about a shoddy product, only to be patched up periodically. (Much like the PS3 itself, although I don't think the PS3 is a shoddy product, I think they rushed it and should have fine tuned it before it's release).
It would be nice to try a beta version before the year is up but really i think roll it out when all the features and bugs are sorted out then you wont be put of by an incompleate product.from what ive seen so far its looking good....
BORED OF WAITING FOR IT! :-/
I rather wait for it so that they can deliver the best experienced ever then to rush it out and it will suck. So i have no problem waiting for it, and plus 08 is just around the corner.
similar to PES 08. They rushed to quickly and now people moan.
best to let sony do their job.
A public beta is actually a good idea, yes many people will not know what to do but it tests the server, there will be bugs and many people can report them.
Home beta right now megh. Even after the update. Sure, you can go outside on the patio and put furniture and stuff. and you can tinker with the In-game Launcher [and it totally crashes Home and brings you back to The XMB] it's not as "fun" but hey, I can report bugs/glitches. That's super!
i got WarHawk and Home betas, so hopefully i'll get that one too
you're not missing out on anything too much right now by not being in the beta.
there's still alot that you can't do that we're suppose to be able to do. like loading our personal pictures. when you try to upload them it freezes the system. there's a option to launch games from within Home but it'll just restart the system.
besides designing your character and apartment, and playing a few games (pool, bowling, chess, checkers, and four arcade games you've never heard of), thats it right now.
it's getting better and i'm very vocal on what i think they need to add and improve, but you guys would probably be kinda disappointed at this point because all the features that will be there in the end aren't working properly now.
just be patient and give them time to sort things out.
have you noticed in the videos that the avatars walk like penguins? they waddle. if home is meant to be realistic then i think they might have to work on that. i wouldn't mind home being a lil less developed if i could have an avatar that actually walks like a human being. i hope Sony works on it.
but yea i can wait till they get it right. If that means April of 08 so be it. Its not like its a AAA game. This is just a FREE online service that might turn into something very very big
they do surf and some are born with Happy Feet.
what does he know....
Who the hell started the rumor in the first place?
Amazing how the word "tommorow" failed to make its way to the title.
