Consumers are another step closer to experiencing PS3 Home, as Sony allows users to submit an application to join the service today.
Later today, the PS Store will be updated with a Home theme which, when downloaded, lets users submit an application to join the Home Beta test community.
Sony's official blog reports: ‘We will be using a variety of criteria including activity on the PlayStation Network to determine eligibility for the Beta community. Existing beta testers have automatically qualified to be part of the expanded beta.
‘We're really excited about this milestone and want our most loyal fans to be a part of the evolution of PlayStation Home.'
In Europe, SCEE is beginning their expanded closed Home beta. The firm is directly targeting consumers who have been most active on PSN and PlayStation Store, emailing these handpicked consumers with an invite to join.
