TGS 07: PlayStation Home Delayed to Spring 2008; New PSP Remote Play Details

15
Outside of the DualShock 3, SCE chief Kazuo Hirai made a few minor announcements regarding Sony's progress in the networking field in is keynote address this morning at the Tokyo Game Show.

In a disappointing note, Hirai revealed that the PlayStation Home platform for the PS3 has been delayed into a new target of Spring 2008. No details were made available.

However, Hirai did outline a few items regarding the PSP. Powering PlayStation 3 systems on and off while on the go will soon be possible under the PSP's Remote Play functionality. In addition, multiple PSPs will now be able to connect to a single PS3.

Hirai used an example of a golf game to illustrate: "For example if you're playing a golf game, your friends can connect through the PSP as spectators. There is also the possibility for combining the data transfer functionality through the PSP so you'll be able to send certain games that you've been playing on the PS3 and transfer them to your PSP so you can continue playing."

    Wow, Spring 2008? For something that probably won't be nearly as intuitive as Live? Way behind they are....

      Yep. Its very pathetic. I just don't see the appeal of home either... I like the simplicity of live.. being able to invite friends in a simple menu... I have no desire to launch into a GUI and virtual world to do so.

      Yeah they're really wasting their time with this Home/3D/Second Life shit. They just need to improve the XMB and that'd be fine. Also the Store is pretty poor, they could definitely work that over.
