Home Available Tomorrow

Sony has announced Home will launch in America and Europe tomorrow, December 11. The service will be free to download and launches from the Playstation 3's cross media bar (XMB). Although the service itself is free, there will be microtransactions for things such as clothing and furniture.

American PS3 owners will have the chance to visit the virtual environments from Uncharted: Drake's Fortune and Far Cry 2. Virtual environments for Resistance, Warhawk, Guitar Hero and SOCOM will come later. No work on when these will be avaible for European users.

Home is finally on it's way, but now the true test is whether it can offer enough interesting this for PS3 owners to keep coming back.
