Sony to launch Playstation Home in the next week?

The UK’s Times claimed yesterday that Sony would be launching the highly anticipated/delayed Home service within the next nine days.

To try Home, which is slated for release in the next 10 days, players must download a piece of free software from Sony’s PlayStation store onto their own PS3.

One would assume that Microsoft’s recent launch of the New Xbox Experience has spurred the launch of Home, but it’s been in Beta for close to two years now. Like Microsoft’s avatar nonsense, I do not look forward to Sony’s Second Life clone.
