Sony says public to test Home for PS3 this summer

Console fans get Sad Life all of their own

Sony will open its Home to guests this summer, the consumer electronics giant has said. No, we're not talking some tedious Hello-esque celebrity fawn-a-thon, but the Second Life-style alternative world for the PS3.

Home is currently in pre-release testing. At the moment, only Sony insiders are getting a look-in, but the beta testing programme will be opened to the public in the summer.

Sony Home for the PS3

Fancy a go? You'll need a PlayStation 3 that's connected to the internet, of course, and you'll need to have registered your interest at www.homebetatrial.com. Sony's not yet inviting folk to register, so you'll need to keep an eye on the site.
