Euro Home beta simultaneous with US

This autumn, says David Reeves.

PlayStation Home will launch into open beta at the same time in Europe as it does in the USA.

That's according to SCEE boss David Reeves, who told hacks at the company's Santa Monica gathering this week that it will arrive "with the same specs, same support and at the same time in autumn 2008".

According to Reeves, "The precise date will be announced by SCEI very shortly."

Home, which has been in development for approximately 2 billion years, is a virtual world where PS3 owners can come together and enjoy one another's company, launch games and behave in a web 2.0 fashion.

It's been delayed so often that it might as well be a train, and we'll have hands-on impressions of the latest build - and the current thoughts of its developers - on the site in very short order.
