According to a Sony rep, PS3 Firmware 2.30 (that will accompany the launch of the new PlayStation Store) will not contain PlayStation Home despite what rumors suggest.

Despite what some rumour mongers would like for you to believe, no, Home is NOT a part of this update.

And so the wait continues...
