Back at the beginning of 2008 we joked that a smaller, more basic version of Home would come out, called ‘Flat’. Well, it seems Sony were on the same wavelength because today they announced ‘Room’. Not sure how we missed it, but with scarce details and the fact that it’s currently limited to Japan for beta testing, Room will feature Avatars, photo albums, chat, minigames and lots of conversation.
Beta testing has started already – click here for details – and will continue on until the 5th of October. You’ll need a Japanese PSN account mind, but we’ll get on it and let you know how it works out.
