Europe and United States joint Home BETA Release this Fall
David Reeves has confirmed that the PlayStation Home BETA will arive with the same specs, same support, and same time in Autumn 2008 in Europe and the US. An exact date for its released was also promised to be revealed 'very shortly'.
To quote: During a press conference in Santa Monica, SCEE President, David Reeves, said the online 3D community service would arrive "with the same specs, same support and at the same time in autumn 2008." He went on to say that an exact date for its release would be announced by SCEI "very shortly."
Home has been delayed by almost a year from its original launch date. The service creates a virtual social environment to interact with other PS3 users, launch online games such as Warhawk, play mini-games such as bowling and pool, share private content and show off your personal space customised with furniture, wallpaper and other items.
Jack Tretton insisted that "your patience will be more than rewarded" during Sony's E3 press conference on Tuesday.
