While the wait for Sony to confirm a long overdue release date for Home, it's just confirmed that PS3 owners in Hong Kong, Singapore and Taiwan will get access to the online virtual world this autumn.

Sony will also begin closed beta testing in the region in mid-September, the release confirms (via http://kotaku.com/5042768/home-hits-asia-in-fall-2008), with details of how to get in on that appearing on the official site tomorrow.

As it stands, Home is expected out here in autumn too, and SCEE president David Reeves promised that it was well on track for that release.

However, both E3 and the Leipzig Games Convention have passed without a mention of Home's release. More PlayStation 3 News...
