The "new Phil Harrison," Sony WWS boss Shuhei Yoshida, has said in this ThreeSpeech interview that Home's current autumn launch is looking "positive".
"We certainly hope so," he said when asked if the PS3 online freebie will be ready in time for Christmas. "Every indication is positive."
He added: "With the timing of the launch, we’ve always set target dates, such as the end of last year or spring of this year, but our problem is always implementing features, testing with beta users, getting feedback and making modifications. When we become confident that it is good enough to make it available to all users, that would be the right time. We have been making good progress, but recently, we have been thinking that this fall is the timing we will work towards."
There's loads more through there.
