home-now

We’ve been tipped by a few gamers that the open beta for PlayStation Home is now available for download. Apparently, the icon for it will just show up on your PlayStation 3. I can’t confirm this since I’ve already been in the beta. Happy home!

    It’s version 1.03 but I can’t seem to log in. Guess the servers are just way too busy. Not that I expected anything less.

    I figure that everything is probably either crashing or taking a long time to load. I didn’t expect not being able to log in but I expected the first day to be a disaster for thousands if not millions of PS3 owners.

    I’m sure things’ll get better over the next few days. They’ll obviously have to increase their bandwidth and maybe throw more servers in the mix. Let’s hope it’s not like this Christmas day when thousands more people get their PS3’s and wonder what that little Home icon does. If they don’t get in the first time or the second time or the third time they may be reluctant to keep trying only to be presented with an error code. Which by the way starts off with “HUBPS3/…” thereby solidifying the story that Home was once going to be called Hub. Thank goodness someone was smart enough to shoot down Hub. Not nearly as friendly or inviting as Home.
