PS3 Home (Closed) BETA Patch v0.9.4.2 coming June 25th

400°
321w ago - PlayStation®Home closed BETA version v0.9.4.2: Welcome to the latest update to PlayStation®Home closed BETA which will be available from Wednesday 25th June.

Below you'll find information on all the changes and additions but we would also like to tell you about our plans for the next few weeks as we are preparing PS®Home for a larger audience and another change will happen shortly.

On about the 10th July we will be moving PS@Home to what will be its long term home and this will entail a new release of this code for you to download. This will also remove all your save data for which we apologise, but this will be the last time that happens and we will also be then setup to expand the beta soon after.

We will confirm dates for this next change shortly but now its time to talk you through the changes to PS@Home in v0.9.4.2

Patching
The first item we need to mention is our new patching system. When the patch is released the first time you connect you will be prompted to get the latest files as normal. If you decline the patch and then still try to log on to PS®Home it will crash. The new patching system is really built for v0.9.4.2 upwards and its compatibility with 0.8.6 is limited.

Targeting system
What your character targets when looking around is now...

329w ago - Kyle Schubel, senior producer at SCEA, has revealed that there will be a LittleBigPlanet closed BETA this summer. Schlubed confirmed that the game will "1 to 4 Players on 1 to 4 PS3s" which means "up to 4 player online and offline."

Schubel also said the game should see a full release in September or October.

To quote: Schubel confirmed the excellent multiplayer support - the game will support 1 to 4 players on 1 to 4 PS3s. That means up to 4 player online and offline. On the DLC side, there will be capacity for 1 million user-created levels on a planet, and the number of planets can be expanded.

And to filter through the inevitable mediocre (read: rubbish) levels, you'll be able to search by popularity, upload date, what your friends have been playing, other levels created by a user and ratings. Video below!
