During the Sony keynote speech at Tokyo Game Show 2007, it was revealed that PlayStation Home will not be released this year as previously reported. Home is now planned to be released early next Spring. Sony didn’t elaborate on whether or not the Spring release will be for all regions or if it only concerns Japan. Sony originally planned to release a Home beta later this fall but didn’t go into details on whether or not the open beta will be delayed as well.
It is speculated that the open beta is not cancelled and PlayStation Home will be released directly for download in Spring 2008, if all goes to plan. The exclusive beta will most likely continue to run until the public launch.
