PS3 to Launch With ‘PlayStation HUB’ Online Service In September
That’s what sources are telling Next-Gen anyway. According to the sources the PlayStation HUB system is being developed by Sony Computer Entertainment Europe and will feature downloadable content such as demos, independent games and online play.
The PS3 hardware would be released in North America and Japan in mid-September, though there’s no word on Europe. Obviously Sony has refused to comment, but it’s thought that PlayStation HUB may be announced in the next few weeks.
