Playstation Home Gets SOME Functionality Back

From the Playstation Blog:

PlayStation Home update 1.05 is scheduled to be released on December 22. With this new update, users will be able to use the voice chat within their personal space and clubhouses to communicate and share with friends online.

So public voice chat is still gone. This lends credibility to the rumor that it was pulled because of offensive gamer behavior in public areas.

Unfortunately there is no word on when the bug that causes items to disappear from your personal space and inventory will be fixed (you know, stuff you PAID for). While Sony likes to remind us that this is a BETA, I’d like to remind Sony that if you’re charging people for something, you better make sure that part works.
