Sony's much-delayed PS3 Home project could finally be set to launch at the end of next month, according to a report on PS3 Fanboy.

A forum post on the Home beta message board by Home Manager 'TedTheDog' said that current PS3 freezes and Network issues currently being experienced by Home beta users would be fixed with the release of PS3 fimware revision 2.50.

"2.5 is what we're waiting for and 'October' is what I've heard, later October is my guess," he said.

Elsewhere in the post, it states that Home 1.0 will launch simultaneously with firmware 2.50.

Sony was unavailable for comment, but expect more news on Home very soon.
