PlayStation Home Open Beta is Now Live!

550°
314w ago - Update #2: 51N15T3R has now added the US PlayStation Home .PKG File (76.9MB) to our PSN Link Database!

Update: It appears some are still experiencing a C-991 network error when trying to log into the service with a message that tells you the connection to the server was lost.

As reported earlier today, you may now download PlayStation Home. The tech issues are now ironed out, and it's download is under the PlayStation Network Icon in XMB, you can't miss it!

From Jack Buser (Director, PlayStation Home) via PS Blog:

Hi PLAYSTATION 3 community,

I am so very happy to announce that PlayStation Home has now officially entered into Open Beta. Restart your PLAYSTATION 3, and you will see the PlayStation Home icon under the PlayStation Network column of the XMB. Click on the icon, and you are in.

Getting to this point has required a tremendous amount of participation, input, care, and passion from the thousands of beta testers who helped make PlayStation Home what it is today. So to all of you that have tested, from all of us on the PlayStation Home...
 

Sony: PlayStation Home Open Beta Launches Tomorrow

350°
315w ago - To solidify earlier confirmations, PlayStation Home Director Jack Buser stated the following via PS Blog today:

The day we've been waiting for is here! And this is just the beginning...

Today we announced that PlayStation Home will enter into open beta, and will be available to everyone tomorrow. This milestone represents the very beginning of a long journey together, as PlayStation Home is an ever evolving, always changing, organic experience – full of new friends to meet, new events to enjoy, and new content to explore.





If this will be your first time in PlayStation Home, be sure to talk to folks that have been around for a while, as they can show you the ropes. We also have a tutorial built in that will get you started with the controls, as well as help menus for you to reference in the Menu Pad. If you don't have a USB keyboard or Bluetooth headset paired with your PlayStation 3, now is the time to do so - either option will allow you to easily talk and meet everyone.

One of the first things that you'll notice that there are always things going on - parties, tournaments, events - some of which will be announced, and...
 

Confirmed: PlayStation Home Open Beta Launches Thursday

50°
315w ago - Talk about down to the wire, what I speculated yesterday might happen in weeks if not days is in fact happening tomorrow.

When you turn on your PlayStation 3 consoles on Thursday, you'll have the option to freely download the 3GB PlayStation Home client, dash off an avatar, then dip your toes into Sony's shiny, neo-industrial digital preserve.

So much for speculation by some that the way you get the client "isn't going to be via a mere firmware update or PlayStation Store download."

Nearly two years of work's gone into creating this collage of areas which include bowling alleys, shops, nightclubs, billboards, a central plaza, and bars with game themes like Far Cry 2 and Uncharted: Drake's Fortune.

There's quite a lot to do, too. You can dance, play pool, chat, collect trophies, hang those trophies on virtual walls, watch videos, dance in front of other people watching videos, be sociable or socially awkward, even launch flying saucers from take-off pads and fly around popping bubbles.

If it sounds surreal, it kind of is. There's even a communal jukebox angle where the most requested song is what plays for everyone. (I don't know about you, but I'm voting for Iron Butterfly's "In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida.")

Some see this as resembling Second Life, except the...
 

PlayStation 3 XMB Plus Open Source Equals Awesomeness

350°
315w ago - The PlayStation 3 can probably be considered one of the most customizable consoles on the market. With the ability to upgrade you HDD, use external USB devices, Bluetooth peripherals, install open source operating systems (Linux/Unix) and freely customize your own XMB theme, the PS3 gives users a freedom of choice that was never previously established in console gaming until this generation.

Not to say that it's really "open" in the sense where programmers, like myself, don't really have the ability to access any hardware acceleration in the RSX because of restrictions by a hypervisor (software systems that run directly on the PS3 as a hardware control and guest operating system monitor) in the available Linux/Unix flavors; this limits any 3D operations that can be done on the PS3 whilst running Linux.

But gamers don't really need to worry about crap like that. That's reserved more for the bewildered geeks that get a stiffy trying to comprehend the internal workings of any system - let alone the PS3.

But what if Sony took off the shackles currently limiting user control of the PS3? What if Sony decided to give users the ability to fully customize and control their interactivity and interface?

To finally change that sonata chime at startup to something more you (not...
