Home development kit version 0.1 in the hands of devs

The development kit for Home has been in the hands of the developers for a few weeks and will allow them to develop super awesome environments, trophies and games for the Home platform. Eventually. Currently the dev kit is at version 0.1 and contains basic tools for creating scenes. Right now it only supports models created in Maya, though that will no doubt be expanded to other 3D graphics packages, such as 3D Studio Max and Softimage XSI.

This information comes from a lecture given at the Develop Conference last week by James Cox from SCEE. He laid out the plans for upcoming versions of the development kit, saying that version 0.8 will allow 3D game creation for within Home spaces. Version 1.1 will be the first time the exporter for trophy achievements will be made available.

We're a little worried at just how functional Home is going to be this Autumn, if the kit currently has such limited tools. Will all the upcoming titles for this year support trophies, minigames and Home spaces? That depends on how quickly the new versions are shipped out to developers. Sony is still determined to release the Home platform this year.

Of course they could just release a version with less features and upgrade later.

And then people would b**ch that there is not enough in it and why did they release it early. 
 
Sony can't win no matter what they do on this one!
 
Remember, patience is a virtue and I would rather wait for a product that is good then release a crippled one just to release one.  And yes, I wanted to be in the beta too but I didn't make it.  My buddy did but I'm not in.

By the way , Maya is way better than 3DS Max.

That's essentially what Phil Harrison hinted at during his interview with the 1up.com guys.
