The newest build of online communication hub Home has been released.
According to members of our forum, several new options are now available in build 0.7.7:
-There's a new building in the world, although it's currently not able to be entered
-You are finally able to enter your Home Space's patio
-You can now use your own pictures in your Home Space
-A game launching option has been added, though it is not functioning completely at the present time
-The cinema's movie theatres have transferred from the second floor to the first floor
-America, Japan, and Europe each have their own server now
It seems Sony is working hard to implement all the features they promised for their virtual world. From the other side of the spectrum, it's unsurprising they delayed the full product until 2008 if they are just implementing these key aspects now.
Stay tuned for more on the Home Beta and Home's ever-changing release date here at PSU as it breaks.

The whole G.A.P member stuff is nonsense since I'm a member and I don't have the beta. But I do have the God of War psp demo... I rather that than having to be commited to a bugged software

Wow, I agree, no wonder why they didn't release it. It seems that most of the things they said you could do with it on launch isn't even in the beta, thats a bit dishearting. I'm glad they delayed it after hearing this, however it kinda stinks because it seems that alot of things the community are asking for is tied to home. So to me the the delay in home means delays on other things, ..one of those IMHO, is in game xmb.
But to Jacksbak, the HOME isn't released yet and you have to be G.A.P memeber form what I can tell, to get an invite to the beta. There is no way to leverage anything to help expediate the process, unless you happen to drink wine on a daily basis with a SCEA CEO? ;P

this all sounds good, but earlier in october i came across a rumor and a picture of this rumore that showed UT3 which is now coming dec 11, using something called gamercards i guess is suppose to be like gamerscore or something like it, also games like uncharted already have their own achivement system and naughty dog even stated that it is supposed to be tie in to home, also at e3 i remember seeing a trophy icon on the xmb, hopefully home will have these on launch day so that the titles that already out would only need an update to make use of these features. also a pstore in home wouldnt hurt either.
