Another Home rumor: Home BETA to end in May?

100°
353w ago - A PlayStation Home BETA tester's account page states that Sony's closed beta will be ending on 5/15/08.

This has sparked rumors that the open BETA or even the launch of Home could be around that date.

To quote: Either way, we wouldn't hold our breathe for Home to magically appear any time soon in a firmware update... especially since 2.4, expected this summer, has not been rumored to contain Home.

PS3 Home BETA gets huge update next week

50°
356w ago - The update will bring the version number to 0.8.3 (taking us ever closer to its release at v1.0.0) and the information comes from the beta message board on the official PlayStation site, so we're certain it's legit.

Playstation Home BETA update version 0.8.3:

New user interface:

The UI has undergone a major change (our graphical artist calls the new interface "Home CS" [Home Chip System]) and it's not just there to look good; we also believe it improves the logical flow of your interactions.

Other UI changes include a new vector based font system that improves text clarity and improvements to a range of different icons (for example the loading icon under your character's feet now gives a sense of something happening).

Another nice addition is that people on your friends list in the virtual PSP are sorted by three different states: "Offline", "Online" and "Online in Home" - these are colour coded too.

The Virtual PSP has undergone considerable changes. We have changed the structure of the menus to try and make it easier and more logical to navigate. There are also new icons for all of the options and new backgrounds available to customise the look. In the past an option that was unavailable to you was simply invisible; but now the option will remain...

Home Beta build v0.7.7 out now!

50°
369w ago - The newest build of online communication hub Home has been released.

According to members of our forum, several new options are now available in build 0.7.7:

-There's a new building in the world, although it's currently not able to be entered
-You are finally able to enter your Home Space's patio
-You can now use your own pictures in your Home Space
-A game launching option has been added, though it is not functioning completely at the present time
-The cinema's movie theatres have transferred from the second floor to the first floor
-America, Japan, and Europe each have their own server now

It seems Sony is working hard to implement all the features they promised for their virtual world. From the other side of the spectrum, it's unsurprising they delayed the full product until 2008 if they are just implementing these key aspects now.

Stay tuned for more on the Home Beta and Home's ever-changing release date.
