Home public beta coming this year

HomeSony has been making a lot of noise at this year’s Tokyo Game Show, as well as during the weeks leading up to it. Much of that noise has been about their upcoming nework service, Home.

A week ago, GamerNode reported on the abandonment of an October launch, which Sony has transformed into an expansion of the closed beta, instead. Then on Thursday, Sony made the announcement that the final release of the service would be pushed back to the spring of 2008.

Now, it seems they are meeting gamers in the middle (well, not really, since it was planned for October, but ok) with a public beta that will begin around the beginning of December.

Said Sony Worldwide Studios president Phil Harrison, "We will still be opening in late November/early December for general beta testing. So, the commercial start of Home will be pushed out later, but you will still get the experience this year."

Thanks, buddy.
