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

Live but slow and buggy as hell.

I was in the closed beta and I demand more than a simple thank you, perhap a statue in my honor would be suffice :).

Cool but too bad there was no special beta incentive like a special shirt or item to identify you were a closed beta tester. It’s been fun and glad it’s finally open to all now.

I’ve always seen Sony as a hardware company, so the software side of things usually messes up… I hope Home evolves into a great app that’ll match up to the quality of the hardware.

Good luck, and thank you for all the hard work… we’ll get there!

I AM DOWNLOADING IT RIGHT NOW ITS AMAZING

I got into the closed beta before, but my ps3 crashed, and I reset the whole thing. Luckily it was today, the day Home is open for everyone!!

I love Sony!

People please, listen to the man as much as we want him to listen to us. He just said its and open BETA which means they will still have some features that may be messed up but the application itself is ready for everyone to do a trial period with pretty much…… I hope those of us that understand and comprehend languages well; will go into home with an open mind and ready to dish out some good advice for improvement within the HOME application… C U guys there… :)

me and 3 of my friends can’t get into home. there has been a recurring server error for all of us. i’ll try again in an hour, but this is really disappointing.

yeah, c-931 error too! Jack?

All we need know is Cross game inviting and voice messaging.

Request timed outs here. Specifically, I’m guessing with all the people having trouble logging in means that 6pm EST party is postponed.

surfer32 said:

I keep getting:

Network Error
The connection to the server was lost
C-931, and c-991 and c-988

come on sony I want to go home!

ctg867 said:

Ugh. This thing sucks. There’s nothing to do, no free content, and it’s just really annoying to even move around. I really hope they completely revamp this entire thing and give me something fun to do. What a disappointment.

i keep getting a C-931 error what’s up

Thank you!!

Request timed out

/HUBPS3_SVML/home/homeEnterWorld.jsp.

This all goes to show that they should have handed out more beta invites so they wouldn’t have more people entering than the system could handle.

I was able to download HOME around 3pm centeral time. After several attempts I managed to log in and create a basic character and move around my Sea side appartment. While looking over the menu’s in the start button I chose an option to check HOME updates or postings of some kind. Upon selecting that the WWW icon poped up in the top right corner and I was frozen for several minutes. I decided to hit the PS button on my controler and quit HOME. Now every time I try to log back in I am getting the same C-988 or C-932 errors everyone else is getting.

Is my avatar stuck as a ghost to the server and showing me as already loged in?

That use to be a problem in Second Life during its beta years.

i’m 15 and it won’t let me in!!

not keep getting network error comeon put in more servers

Lieutenant said:

December 11th, 2:02 pm

Sure, Home is live… but the servers? Not so much.

F3aturePreacher said:

December 11th, 2:03 pm

For everyone getting the c-931 error, see what happens when you restart the ps3, and then try to get into HOME.

Wuggyboobeaufuf said:

December 11th, 2:04 pm

Won’t connect for me.

Home isn’t live yet. Kind of undead.

Now that Sony is finally no longer distracted by Home, can we finally get

A) more exclusive games?
B) more interesting, quirky games like Incredible Crisis and Mister Mosquito?
C) More RPGs?

Thanks.

Is there a limited number of games applicable with Game Launching? I can see Warhawk on my list.

To the people experience errors; Just keep stressing it. Try again, try again, try again. If they lose a few servers, they were never meant to be.

Looking forward to seeing everyone in Home. Thanks Sony for inviting me to the closed beta. I look forward to watching this whole enviroment grow and grow.

I can’t connect! Keep getting connection errors! also wtf is /HUBPS3_SVML/unity/start.jsp I keep getting that message! :(

User generated content should be a must. Let us make our own things, script our characters.

Even a 50$ dev kit we can download would work, allowing us to make money just like SecondLife. Without the user generated content, SecondLife would be nothing.

HEYFACE said:

December 11th, 2:07 pm

still not seeing the store updates…i wanna spend money on things

LAtheDJ said:

December 11th, 2:07 pm

I waited so long…

And now there’s errors.

Hm. Well, at least I have plenty in my Netflix queue on XBL.

DISCLAIMER: This is no endorsement of XBL over PSN. I’m just bored.

zookey said:

December 11th, 2:08 pm

WELCOME HOME EVERYONE!!!!

SONY: I know, not totally related, but can you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE develop something similar to XNA for the PS3? Even if it is within HOME and has some limitations—there is a lot of indie devs (myself included) who would like to make 3D demos of games so we can pitch them to you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

daLa said:

December 11th, 2:08 pm

[DELETED]! still not able to get in, why would they say it’s live if it’s not.

Enigma777 said:

I’m the guy running around screaming: I have no keyboard!

Home is fun…

ThomasAnthony said:

December 11th, 2:08 pm

@75:
There are alot of exclusive games. Lets go with whats coming:
Killzone 2
Uncharted 2
God Of War 3
Twisted Metal PS3
The Agency etc.

Just look at this year:
GT5:P
MGS4
Valkyrie Chronicles
Resistance 2
LittleBigPlanet
Disgaea 3
among others..

Then cross platform games are better on PS3 since PSN is free.

zookey said:

I STRONGLY SECOND #80’s COMMENT—-USER GENERATED GAMES AND CONTENT FTW!

battleCat3000 said:

December 11th, 2:11 pm

We all knew this was going to happen. It’s a shame that Sony couldn’t see it coming. I keep getting the same network errors. I’m tired man, I’ll try again next week.

NeoMagus said:

December 11th, 2:12 pm

Never had a problem in closed beta, yet can’t connect today with numerous c991 and 931 errors. way to stress test those servers guys, what a let down.

blindrocket said:

December 11th, 2:12 pm

SWEET. Take me HOME!

That’s pretty neat how the Home icon popped up automatically on our XMB. How’d you do that? ;)

hothead626 said:

December 11th, 2:12 pm

i hope u guys will fix the errors soon, i was in HOME for a good hour, then got booted out cuz of a network error and now keept getting the request timed out stuff

Sickr said:

December 11th, 2:12 pm

Wow, way to screw up Sony… How long have you guys had to prepare for the onslaught of users who’re set to download the software? All everyone seems to be getting at the moment is time-outs.

P.S I wish people rating the news would wait until they’ve successfully downloaded and entered the application before doing so.

*rant over*
