Sony's Martijn Van der Meulen gave an update on the progress of Sony's Playstation "Home" environment, telling IGN there is "a 100 percent guarantee that Home will be released by the end of this calendar year
." Originally intended for use on the PS2, the release was pushed back several times as Sony sought to improve the concept
. One thing Sony has been trying to accomplish is making the game "safe" and accessible to kids while maintaining an adults-only area
. They maintain that it is not a social network
, but rather a "visual representation of the PlayStation community."
