Europe and United States joint Home BETA Release this Fall

50°
341w ago - David Reeves has confirmed that the PlayStation Home BETA will arive with the same specs, same support, and same time in Autumn 2008 in Europe and the US. An exact date for its released was also promised to be revealed 'very shortly'.

To quote: During a press conference in Santa Monica, SCEE President, David Reeves, said the online 3D community service would arrive "with the same specs, same support and at the same time in autumn 2008." He went on to say that an exact date for its release would be announced by SCEI "very shortly."

Home has been delayed by almost a year from its original launch date. The service creates a virtual social environment to interact with other PS3 users, launch online games such as Warhawk, play mini-games such as bowling and pool, share private content and show off your personal space customised with furniture, wallpaper and other items.

Jack Tretton insisted that "your patience will be more than rewarded" during Sony's E3 press conference on Tuesday.

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

400°
345w 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...

200°
345w ago - So much for Nintendo's attempt to block the homebrew-enabling Twilight hack for Wii. Once again Wii Dev'ers have updated it to version 0.1 BETA, complete with support for the recently released Wii System Menu 3.3.

Essentially, this means you can now update to latest Wii firmware, free of homebrew annihilating side-effects. A changelog is below, courtesy of developer Marcan.

Download: Twilight v0.1 BETA for Wii

Changelog:

* The Twilight Hack is now compatible with version 3.3 of the Wii System Menu.
* Improvements in video configuration. The entire console should now be visible in all video modes, and scrolling has been improved.
* For the USA version, the two variants of the hack have been packed into one save file. Just select the save slot that corresponds to your version of Twilight Pricess when you start the game.
* New savegame icons by drmr. The new icons now show which region that version of the hack is for.
* This version now tries to load boot.dol, and falls back to boot.elf if boot.dol is not found.
* ???????
* Many, many bug fixes.
