Home delayed again


SCEA's just confirmed that Home has been pushed back again. The closed beta will now continue through the summer, with an open beta beginning in the autumn.

"We understand that we are asking PS3 and prospective PS3 users to wait a bit longer, but we have come to the conclusion that we need more time to refine the service to ensure a more focused gaming entertainment experience than what it is today," said SCE boss Kaz Hirai.

"Our overarching objective is to provide users with new gaming experiences that are available only on PlayStation Home. Spending more time on the development and on the Closed Beta testing reaffirms our commitment to bringing a quality service, maintaining the PlayStation tradition."

More people are going to be taken on for the closed beta, apparently. No specific date's been given for the open beta. Didn't Harrison say Home was going to release in autumn 2007?
