Remember Sony's TGS press conference last year? When Home was delayed? To Spring? Well you'll be happy to know that during their Japanese press conference Sony announced that, for once, Home is not delayed. In fact, it's almost out. The open beta is on schedule for release in Japan later this month. It'll then end at some point in November when, presumably, the actually really real thing will be released.
Sony also announced that twenty one new publishers have signed up to create content for the service. It's a pretty exhaustive list of contributors, despite the lack of Square Enix. There's no indication as to whether those on the list will also be creating content for the US and Europe. Hopefully we'll hear more of that before the Western release of the service, which should hit around the same time as Japan. The full list of new contributors for Home in Japan is after the break.
