The clock is ticking on Sony’s
to release an open beta for its PS3 social network Home by the end of the year – and a report in yesterday’s issue of
suggests that December 17th may be the day.
The piece reads: To try Home, which is slated for release in the next 10 days, players must download a piece of free software from Sony’s PlayStation store onto their own PS3.”
Whether or not the date is true, it’s certainly the case that the Home bandwagon has picked up considerable pace of late. And were Sony planning on slipping the release until 2009, it’s certainly waiting until the very final moment before dropping the bombshell.
