TGS07: Home delayed until Spring 2008

PlayStation 3's social MMO Home has been delayed until Spring 2008, according to Kaz Hirai during the Tokyo Game Show press conference. A previous progress report from an anonymous beta tester gave the indication that development was behind schedule, so we're not too surprised. However, we would love to know if any updates have been implemented in the last month, if anyone in the notoriously secretive beta would like to speak up.

3. I hate to admit that as a ps3 owner... I'm getting real used to the idea of delays. Not happier about them though... how about a little of the old under-promise, over deliver?

4. I wasn't particularly excited about Home... but I was a little excited about getting something delivered on time.

8. I won't talk about the beta but just say that everything is going smoothly which makes this announcement kind of a shock. Based the last update I figured late October was when we'd get the final version but oh well.

I'm just hoping they extend the beta for us testers. The test is supposed end soon (I won't reveal the date in case it's a secret but I'm sure you'll find out from somebody). Oh well, in its current state I would say releasing now wouldn't be the best decision Sony's ever made but based on the progress they've made in the beta and based on all the stuff Phil showed at this past E3 has me scratching my head as to why we have to wait so long before it's finalized.

9. If I cared about "Home" I would be upset. I prefer a simple interface like LIVE. Hopefully "Home" is an option and not a app that is forced.

10. I like to wait for a quality product. I don't like to be lied to about how long I can expect to wait.

Solution: Ignore Sony's release schedules.

11. Lame. Very lame. I should have waited til 08 to get a PS3. Oh well. GTA, Metal Gear, Little Big Planet, Home. 08 will be awesome. I just hate being patient.

12. @6 I don't think SONYs intent was to excite you when it comes to that LOL, it's meant for whe nyour not gaming ,if you were turning in on for excite ment or enjoyment then i can understand why it got boring LMAO

13. The worst thing Sony could do is release this unfinished. Home is a MAJOR project for the PS3 and to have this become a failure like Lair would be unacceptable. A delay to get it going in the right direction is something I'm sure all PS3 owners will enjoy in the end. In the end, Home will have more people using it than WoW has subscribers. They have to get this right.

Those that are actually lucky enough to become Beta testers, give as much feedback as you can to make this a quality product for all. I'm counting on you. *winks*

14. Time to rename the Playstation 3 to the Delaystation 3. Must everything be delayed. Is anything going to make 2007? They should have have launched in 2008 so they could been cheaper and have some freakin games.

Posted at 6:04AM on Sep 20th 2007 by RangerPrimeX

15. Don't be such drama queens. There are enough cool games coming out untill the end of the year. Both exclsuives as well as multiplatform. More than you can play or afford anyway.

Posted at 8:26AM on Sep 20th 2007 by Egster

16. Really who didn't see that coming??
I think these launch dates are Bull****, That's just to keep you hanging on. Always telling you it's coming, then ooops it's been delayed. Really now, You know they already knew that it wasn't coming out this year, Don't be fooled by the lies....

Posted at 8:55AM on Sep 20th 2007 by TRUTH

17. Like what Egster ? Games like Lair or Heavenly sword ,oh wait I finished that one the same night I rented it..

It's either late or underdellivered so far.

I'm really starting to regret my purchase of the PS3...

Posted at 8:55AM on Sep 20th 2007 by FrannckyB

18. Blah blah blah, I hear the same bullshit everytime I go to a PS3 site, Sony this, Sony that, I regret my purchase, yada yada. You're all blowing things extremely out of proportion, like there's ABSOLUTELLY NOTHING to play on the PS3. Exclusives aren't the only games coming out for a system, and many people seem to forget that. Please remember all the cross platform games (COD4 FTW). Oh yeah, and just because a game didn't get a 9.9 on IGN doesn't mean you shouldn't buy it. Reviewers have extremely high standards for games, and considering most of you guys haven't played more than 3 games in your life, a 7 will seem like a 10 to you.

If you're that bored and absolutelly can't wait until you get Metal Gear 4, and don't have the money for a 360, whip out your old PS2 games and play them again. Oh yeah! It can play PS2 games. Aren't you glad the PS2 kicked ass? The good games are good no matter how many times you play 'em.

Hey, if you really hate your PS3, I could use a free one.

19. @ Sample

Thank you, that's one of the greatest things I've ever heard, it's all so true.

20. Hahaha

19 & 20 sound like Sony employees.

People have a right to be pissed about this.
