Playstation Home Open Beta Launches

Well, it’s finally here for us all to play… almost. With every clued-up PS3 owner diving into home there’s a few network issues. Well I say “network issues” but I can’t, in actual fact, get connected to Home in any way, shape or form.

After a 71ish megabyte download you fire Home up and it reserves a further 3gb for its location caches, that’s a sizable hunk of space set aside for something that is currently just a network disconnect simulator.

I had set the PS3 up for video recording, eagerly awaiting the opportunity to try out the Home open beta and produce a quick video of my experience, but it looks like it’s a no go. Back to Prince of Persia, I guess.

Epic fail? I think so.
