As Sony's open Home beta approaches the end of its first week, the firm has asserted that it believes the virtual world service will eventually grow to become a key selling point for the firms's PS3 console.
Speaking to CVG, Home service manager for SCEE Dan Hill stated: In time I would say that Home will definitely become a reason to purchase PS3. Today, we are at the beginning of a long journey – now is the time to start its evolution. No one else is doing anything of this scale or ambition.
The PlayStation Network is getting better all the time. Home is integral to our online offering. If you buy a PS3 and you grow with us, as Home evolves, you are going to become part of something very special, something unlike you can experience anywhere else.”
