Home delayed until spring 2008

HomeSony has announced that its ambitious online project, Home, will be delayed until the spring of 2008.

Currently, the project is in a closed beta phase, with an expansion scheduled for sometime in October. The expansion will still not make the service publicly available, however. For that, everyone will just have to keep playing the waiting game.

The specific reasons for the delay are unclear, but at his Tokyo Game Show keynote address, Sony Computer Entertainment president Kazuo Hirai stated that the delay is "so we can truly meet the needs and feedback of the users."

He also said that Sony is examining various business models for the service in order to determine what is best for Sony and its partners.

"The more I think about it, I think there are a multitude of business chances – not just from ourselves, but from our partners as well," said Hirai.

Way to do it for the customers, Kaz!
