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

400°
316w 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...
 

PS3 Home 'Open Working BETA' Still On Track for 2008

300°
318w ago - Sony's long-promised PlayStation 3 virtual world Home is still on track for a 2008 release, although it'll likely stay in BETA.

While talking to senior director of PlayStation Network Susan Panico yesterday about Sony's new online PS3 magazine Qore, we got very briefly onto the subject of Home.

Saying that the software is still due for release at the end of the year, Panico noted that the "rollout will be similar to Gmail," describing what will launch this year as an "open, working BETA."

I certainly hope it's not that similar to Gmail, or it'll never get out of BETA. :P
 

PS3 Home BETA Ubidays '08 Extended Video available!

50°
319w ago - Here is a video (over 10 minutes long) that I recorded of the Ubidays 2008 event in HOME BETA.

I think this video will show more of the space than the first video that was posted earlier here.

Enjoy guys!




 

PS3 Home BETA Update v0.8.6 includes Media & Events Space

50°
320w ago - It seems Home has updated to v0.8.6 with a new space... supposedly a Media and Events space. My thought would be more along the lines of giving the Home testers trailers instead of fixing the launch of a game from Home. Sadly, the article linked above had to remove the new images due to a copyright issue.

To quote: A tipster who choses to remain anonymous sent us in these new screenshots of a new update to the Home closed BETA. The BETA is now at v0.8.6.

The new space is called the Media and Events Space and it seems to be a harness for all PLAYSTATION related events.

The update also came with a new survey asking questions such as your thoughts on the new space, it's presentation area, your opinion on the photos and video in the gallery, and what not.

They want to know if you would like to see more events similar to PlayStation Day, what kind of content you want to see in the Media & Events Space to make your next visit more compelling, etc.
