Oh yes, we're still getting updates, but we have to believe we're in the stretch run by now…
First of all, we have learned that Sony just sent out a bunch of new invites to the closed beta test, so check your inboxes if you haven't gotten in already. Secondly and most importantly, PlayStation Home director Jack Buser has issued a promise that "everyone" will be able to enjoy Home before the year is out. We've heard this before, of course, but the more they say it, the more we're inclined to believe it. Said Buser-
"Like we've said, we're excited about moving PlayStation Home into its open beta stage this year. Once we make the move to open beta, everyone will have access to PlayStation Home.PlayStation Home is nearing the final stages of our closed beta. Last week we successfully moved to our 1.0 client, which places us on schedule for the launch of open beta this year." (Source- Eurogamer)
This falls in line with the rumor that one developer said we could expect Home between the 15th and 30th of this month, so that's encouraging. As for the other rumors regarding ever-changing weather patterns and currency, we haven't seen any official response to that just yet but then again…hey, it's Thanksgiving. We'll give 'em a break for a little while longer. But they had best come through on this promise, or they're gonna have a ton of extremely disappointed PS3 owners on their hands.
