SCEE has confirmed that Home has reached a solid integer and will be unleashing it on the closed beta "in the coming weeks".
Home Community Manager 'TedTheDog' posted the good news and admits he knows "the lack of a date is annoying." Sony is super-serious that Home will release this fall, maybe.
"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," TedTheDog .
"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."
Sony has announced that Home beta invites will be available to Qore subscribers, that's the online PS3 magazine that's only available in the US at the moment. They'll be dished out in this November's issue.
"Something I mentioned to the beta testers today is important to remember. 1.0 is a major milestone on our journey but it is not the destination. Think long term beyond Open Beta, theres stuff that will arrive in the few months after Open Beta starts that will really show what Home can bring to you. " "Some really innovative and clever ideas and some wonderful implementations of the Home vision and, to be blunt, some really fun stuff to do."
