267w ago - Sony's Home Community Manager TedTheDog recently replied on the Official PlayStation boards when asked if he could hint on PlayStation Home's launch stating:
"How about "this year" then? Sorry, you dont have too long to wait compared to the length of the project so far, but I know the lack of a date is annoying. If it helps v1.0 is in internal testing and will hit the Closed BETA in the coming weeks as will more testers by invitation."
Additionally, CVG (linked above) is reporting that the November issue of Qore will include invites into the next Home Closed BETA.
To quote: Meanwhile, it has emerged that subscribers of the US-only online PSN magazine, Qore, will get invites into Home next month.

If it helps v1.0 is in internal testing and will hit the closed beta in the coming weeks as will more testers by invitation. Something I mentioned to the BETA testers today is important to remember. 1.0 is a major milestone on our journey...

In related news, there several people are reporting that invites to the Killzone 2 closed BETA test went out today to a very limited number of European PlayStation 3 owners.
While there were no 'official' sign-ups being made for the Killzone 2 BETA, chances are SCEE is likely selecting users who applied for their BETA test initiative last July.
Needless to say, all details pertaining to the game are under NDA, and those selected are being asked to restrict sharing gameplay impressions only on Sony's European private BETA boards for the time being.
