Japan PlayStation Home Beta Opens Today

Over at the Japanese PLAYSTATION Store, there is a big banner on the front page. If you download the 277KB theme, you’ll apparently be in the Home beta. This must be done before August 11th, though.

The Japanese Home beta features a playable echochrome machine, along with a Namco gamespace allowing you to re-experience games such as Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig-Dug, and others.

View more screenshots of the new beta here and find out how to get in this Japanese beta here.
