Correct, its dated March 7th

 it just asks a whole bunch of questions:

 Is this really what PS3 owners want? Is Home not simply a glorified friends list brought to life in a virtual world that brings the nightmare of omnipresent advertising into our spare time away from the media glare as well? Are people going to spend real money to clothe their avatars and decorate their houses? Will people go to virtual cinemas to watch clips of games, TV shows and movies if they can get them via more traditional means? It's hard to imagine gamers frothing over Killzone and Gran Turismo 5 caring too much about Home and yet the obscene price of the PS3 means that Home is less accessible to more casual gamers. Exactly who has Home been created for, and perhaps more importantly, will they be there on the PS3 to enjoy it?

Wow, they seem really negative towards home, and the way they talk, they can make you doubtful of anything...

I would like to think that they are simply exploring both sides, but I really doubt it.

Relax its just an initial idea of home. It does make a few valid points however. Only time will tell if it right or wrong.

You know what i don't listen to any of that BS because in a nut shell. It's my game i play what i want the money i spent on it came out my pocket an no one else's.So if i want too invest 7 to 8 hundred more dollars in MY PS3 not a sole can tell me know.An if i'm getting ripped of than that's my problem.So they can say what they want about the ps3 an Home i'll get it an i'll use it an they can kiss my $#@$

GEE i wonder if this guy doesn't like Sony??? From the first sentence you could tell it's a bashing article!!! I love how people doom something that threatens to be the best thing out there.
