Sony's Home gets delayed, open beta coming in the Fall

If you've been getting excited about Sony's Home service for the PS3, I might suggest taking your excitement down a notch or two. No, it's not that the service won't live up to your expectations or anything, it's just that you'll have to wait even longer. Hit the jump for the official word from Sony on the Home delay.

We understand that we are asking PS3 and prospective PS3 users to wait a bit longer, but we have come to the conclusion that we need more time to refine the service to ensure a more focused gaming entertainment experience than what it is today," said Kazuo Hirai, President and Group CEO, Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. "Our overarching objective is to provide users with new gaming experiences that are available only on PLAYSTATION Home. Spending more time on the development and on the Closed Beta testing reaffirms our commitment to bringing a quality service, maintaining the PlayStation tradition.

The closed beta will continue through the summer, and expect an open beta sometime this fall. At least you'll have the chance to test it out later in the year.
