Home was too ambitious, says Reeves

Speaking to CVG, SCEE president David Reeves has admitted that Home’s been delayed because the initial vision was too ambitious.

“We’ve realised that maybe we were too ambitious with the non-gaming applications within Home, getting sponsors and stuff like that,” he said, speaking at this week’s SCEE PlayStation Day.

“In that sense we were deserting gamers. So, we’re concentrating on the gaming by launching games in Home, and attracting people who are into gaming in first – instead of the Nike people, or Adidas people who are into fashion and not necessarily into gaming.”

Never fear, though. No more slips, Reeves promised.

“It is definitely coming out in autumn,” he added. “Whether that’s October or November, I don’t precisely know, but it is an open beta.”
