A few things of note to tell you today now the main news is out:

 
  • Tomorrow Home will be offline for some time. Judging by the level of anticipation you'll know of its return within nano seconds
  • Once its back online we will be running version 1.03 and all those with the current version will be offered a patch. The patch simply supports the server changes being made to support Open Beta
  • From Open beta onwards the age limit for Home within SCEE will change from 18+ to 16+
  • Once the Open Beta is up and running the Home icon will be on your XMB under PlayStation®Network. If you cant see it please restart your PS3 which will update your XMB. However, wait until Home is up and running first
  • Home will be available to everyone who has a PlayStation®Store
  • The Red Bull Air Race will not be included tomorrow, but will arrive within days. It will be worth the wait.
  • Please remember, this really is a Beta.

Welcome aboard everyone, we hope you enjoy the journey over the months and years ahead.

Coolio, I really hope this is worth the wait. I'm interested in what that Red Bull Air race is though, i've never heard of it before (I know what it is in real life, I mean is it the same in Home?).

Thanks Ted for the update, looking forward to the Red Bull section (in a couple of days) and those doors opening to the monorail ( I persume thats how we get to the Far Cry area) and answered my burning question of a patch rather than a full down load for people with the 1.02 invite version. Many thanks for all your hard work. I bet you guys are proud to see all your hardwork and vision coming to life.

1. The "monorail" doors are actually for a conference place - usually used for press meetings / demos etc. ... ;)

 

2. To get to other areas without "direct" access you'd need to use the World map via your PDA (Start Button) menu.

 

3. There is no "patch" - you'll simply download whole new version 1.03 to replace your current 1.02 as well as any updated space.

Thanks for the great news Ted. I dont mind it being offline since its going to come back online quickly and theres a new update on the way. I just hope the servers can handle the amount of new testers who will be trying to log on as quickly as possible all at the same time

Tomorrows gonna own.

So, if we've already got the closed beta, we only have to download a patch, not the beta from the store?

Interesting red bull race, looks pretty sweet.

would be fun though.

except they go one at a time, rally style so there wouldn't be much to shoot at anyway.

 

anyway, thanks for the update ted.

is there any info on what time the home servers will be shutting down?
