PlayStation Home is Now Live!

Jack Buser's Avatar Posted by Senior Director, PlayStation Now

Hi PLAYSTATION 3 community,

I am so very happy to announce that PlayStation Home has now officially entered into Open Beta. Restart your PLAYSTATION 3, and you will see the PlayStation Home icon under the PlayStation Network column of the XMB. Click on the icon, and you are in.

Getting to this point has required a tremendous amount of participation, input, care, and passion from the thousands of beta testers who helped make PlayStation Home what it is today. So to all of you that have tested, from all of us on the PlayStation Home team here at Sony: “Thank You!”

For those of you that are new to PlayStation Home, be sure to plug in a USB keyboard (or pair your Bluetooth headset) and start meeting your fellow PS3 owners. And remember, even with all the spaces, rewards, items, and activities available today, what you see now is just the beginning. Home will grow, change, and evolve very quickly – and it is all based on your feedback.

This is your community, and we are listening.

Add Your Own

People, please I need some help!
In my PS3 the PS Home icon its not showing, it’s that normal? That’s because it’s Beta version?

i think over time you should start putting actual designer clothes in here to dress up your avatar to your liking and your style put clothes in here from ed hardy sean jean ecko Rocawear etc… make it so u can dance with a partner or have more interactions with people like the real world

“…Restart your PLAYSTATION 3, and you will see the PlayStation Home icon under the PlayStation Network column of the XMB…” – apparently not in my lifetime !

I read here somewhere that someone didn’t like the idea of someone from France dancing in front of him/her. Just a thought but Home should introduce the concept of driving/flying from one’s city/state/province/country to another city/state/province/country rather than have nut jobs pop out of from behind a bush to antagonize you….. I’m in Canada, wonder if I would need a passport to drive into the virtual US….. There could be U.S. PSN users who would work at a virtual border crossing and ask crazy questions like whether I was bringing in any oranges (yes, they really do ask that at the border….) Anyhew, it would be nice if someone from Sony could advise what’s going on with the lack of a Home icon for those who are asking…..

I have downloaded the beta and find that anyone under the age of 18 cannot play due to their age. Is this still true and will it ever be changed?

In the end there’s nothing to do in this “PlayStation Home” Sony didn’t deliver on the promise – PlayStation Home is a 3D virtual community for PlayStation 3 users, it’s an interactive virtual space where users meet up, hang out, and explore a connected world. It’s free of charge and is available from the cross media bar (XMB). – and just made a pathetic attempt to make me be social. I say screw you Sony for trying to make gamers not anti-social and I want to continue to be that stereotype that people have over gamers. Since it’s a beta and will eventually be free and most of the time all you do is just talk I guess it will be ok, I’ll have to see. Hell, is it anything different than this website?

There is no “PlayStation Home icon under the PlayStation Network column of the XMB”. What do I have to do to get it?

I set up a sub account for my husband and he can’t log on due to age restrictions. Will there be a change in the way sub accounts are restricted?

So, far PSHome looks really cool. I do however have a few suggestions. It would be cool if there were places to go with age brackets. There is this game site I like to go to called Pogo.com and when you are picking a room to play in, the rooms are separated by age or in general. There’s a room for teens, 20s, 30s, 40s, 50+. The reason I have thought about this is because I am in my 30’s and have come across some very rude and obnoxious kids. When I asked how old they were they said 14 and 17 and then kept following me and harassing me throughout the game. So, I thought I would mention the age idea.
Also, lol…I think the hair-styles in the game could use some work. The females styles are all short…I wish there were styles for longer hair.
Besides those 2 thoughts I have totally enjoyed roaming around PSHome and thank the ones who thought of it!!!

Happy Holidays!
