December 11, 2008 // 7:52 pm - Update #2: 51N15T3R has now added the US PlayStation Home .PKG File (76.9MB) to our PSN Link Database!

Update: It appears some are still experiencing a C-991 network error when trying to log into the service with a message that tells you the connection to the server was lost.

As reported earlier today, you may now download PlayStation Home. The tech issues are now ironed out, and it's download is under the PlayStation Network Icon in XMB, you can't miss it!

From Jack Buser (Director, PlayStation Home) via PS Blog:

Hi PLAYSTATION 3 community,

I am so very happy to announce that PlayStation Home has now officially entered into Open Beta. Restart your PLAYSTATION 3, and you will see the PlayStation Home icon under the PlayStation Network column of the XMB. Click on the icon, and you are in.

Getting to this point has required a tremendous amount of participation, input, care, and passion from the thousands of beta testers who helped make PlayStation Home what it is today. So to all of you that have tested, from all of us on the PlayStation Home team here at Sony: "Thank You!"

For those of you that are new to PlayStation Home, be sure to plug in a USB keyboard (or pair your Bluetooth headset) and start meeting your fellow PS3 owners. And remember, even with all the spaces, rewards, items, and activities available today, what you see now is just the beginning. Home will grow, change, and evolve very quickly - and it is all based on your feedback.

This is your community, and we are listening.

PlayStation Home Open Beta is Now Live!

If you are doing it from the PS3 console, you may need to reboot and then hop back online for it to appear...
