Sony PlayStation 3 Home Beta Site Now Up
During Wednesday's keynote presentation, Sony's Phil Harrison mentioned that, while the finished version of Home for the PlayStation 3 would be available in fall of this year, there would be a beta of the program that would be made available in April. It looks like Sony's getting a bit of a head start on the process, however, since a new Web site opened up Thursday, advertising the impending release of the beta trial. Currently, it doesn't say much, but what it does say is this:
Welcome to Home Beta.
Home is a real-time 3D, networked community that serves as a meeting place for PLAYSTATION 3 (PS3) users from around the world, where they can interact, communicate, join online games, shop, share content and even build their own personal spaces. Home will be available as a free download from the PLAYSTATION Store and will launch directly from the PS3 system's Home Menu.

We'll keep you updated as soon as we hear more.
