  • Home Beta Still Launching This Fall

    PlayStation Home will launch into open beta at the same time in Europe as it does in the USA.

    That's according to SCEE boss David Reeves, who told hacks at the company's Santa Monica gathering this week that it will arrive "with the same specs, same support and at the same time in autumn 2008".

    According to Reeves, "The precise date will be announced by SCEI very shortly."

    Home, which has been in development for approximately 2 billion years, is a virtual world where PS3 owners can come together and enjoy one another's company, launch games and behave in a web 2.0 fashion.

    It's been delayed so often that it might as well be a train, and we'll have hands-on impressions of the latest build - and the current thoughts of its developers - on the site in very short order.
    Good news. It was starting to sound like Home wasnt going to come this year.

    Home Common Areas Region Locked

    We were given a pretty in-depth walkthrough of the current state of Home, including a couple of game spaces (images of those later), during which we asked the bloke as many questions as we could think of. Top of our list? Making sure that we would be able to meet up with our friends all across the planet in the various public spaces. Unfortunately, this is not the case. Home's public spaces are going to be region-specific.

    If you want to meet up with your pals from abroad, then you'll be able to invite them into your apartment, but warping into the game space to bowl or play chess is not possible. This is allegedly to make sure that each region receives an "experience most suited to their tastes" as well as, no doubt, to keep advertisers happy. The last thing they want is Europeans seeing an advert directed at Americans.
    It makes sense, i mean was everyone really expecting to have a million odd people on the same server running around the same rooms? lol.. Besides, theres enough racism and shit online already, i know a few brits who wont even use their headsets because dumb ass americans clown on them because of it. You will still be able to invite friends into your apartment from other regions, so its not all bad.

          The point of home is get together with friends play pool goto game rooms etc but if you have friends in us or uk w/e u can only go in youre private space its sounding more pointless by the day they need to put this to bed cus sony is killing it with every press release

            Lol Sony cant just not release Home now, not after all this. It really doesnt make sense to have global servers. I mean, all around the world people are speaking different languages, you cant have Japanese advertisements running when if the majority of the users speak english and vice versa. I dont know why anyone would be surprised that the common areas and shit are region locked, i had assumed that from the get-go.

                Ok but most MMOs dont have real time ads and trailers and videos running.. How would that work out? I dont see how they could show one person english ads and another japanese ads while they are both in the same server unless they used like subtitles or some shit, but even then the ads differ between north america, europe and asia quite a bit, they wouldnt be advertising the same products and the only way to make Home free is to have ads in it, Sony cant all of a sudden say they are going to charge for the service and they sure as hell cant just not release it now..
