500°
291w ago - A PlayStation Home BETA participant with access to a restricted PlayStation Forums thread has passed along a potential release month -- October -- for the next major PlayStation 3 firmware update (v2.50), PS3 Fanboy reports.

The date was suggested by Home manager "TedTheDog" who clarified, "late October is my guess." The update will supposedly include a bug fix for freezing and network errors currently affecting Home users.

Ted (just "Ted" is okay, right?) also hints that Home v1.00 could coincide with firmware v2.50's release -- Home is currently at v0.98.

Common sense, while not always a part of Sony's repertoire, tells us that Home 1.0 is the version that goes public -- we'll see.

291w ago - Per Mark Valledor (Marketing Manager, SCEA) today:

For those of you who've pre-ordered and are anxiously waiting, we've received great news from Media Molecule - the game code has gone 'GOLD' and we've started manufacturing the PS3 cases, manuals and most importantly Blu-ray discs.

Meaning, LittleBigPlanet will hit stores in North & Latin America on October 21 (With Europe releasing the same week). But trust us, you'll want to be there with us during the first week. Why you ask?

During the first week only, to celebrate "Launch", LBP fans everywhere will be able to download a FREE, Limited Edition Spacesuit costume for your SackBoy on the PLAYSTATION Store. (Get it...Launch...Spacesuit...o never mind)

In addition to the freebie, there will also be a rare "I was there Week One" T-Shirt available - to prove that you were... well... "there Week One."

Now for those of you that haven't pre-ordered, we would hate to think you went to the store and saw the dreadful "Sold Out" sign and missed out on the FREE download. So, if you want your spacesuit, you're best bet is to guarantee your copy by heading to your nearest participating retailer and pre-ordering your copy. Besides... you'll get additional pre-order goodies...
