I was going to post this in the Sony section, but in fear of making an edited post a tad too long, I'm going to put it here.

Anyway here's the most important tidbits from the invite email that I, along with other random registered Playstation 3 users, got from Sony, regarding participation in the beta trial.


Sony HOME said:
Home is ramping up for its debut, and we're inviting you to sign up for a very special beta test. Space is extremely limited, so if you want to participate in the beta test, FIND OUT MORE by clicking here or on the button below.

REMEMBER:

Home Beta is open to legal U.S. or Canadian residents 18 years or older who are currently registered PlayStation® Underground™ members.
Participation in Home Beta means you will be subject to Sony Computer Entertainment Europe's Privacy Policy and will receive further communications from Sony Computer Entertainment Europe.
You must accept the Home Beta Trial Agreement to sign up.
Not everyone who signs up will be accepted.
If you are one of the chosen few, we will notify you via email.
Good luck!

Also the invites have stopped and been closed. The link is no longer open. However, while the link was open anybody could have got in, the link surprisingly was not user specific. WTF. I guess that's a bad sign for things to come. =D

We will probably learn who actually got in or not tomorrow probably. I have only beta tested once for the PSP so I'm likely to not be in it.

Sony HOME said:
NO PLACE LIKE HOME: SIGN UP FOR THE HOME BETA TEST

Sorry, this survey has closed. Thank you for your interest.


So that sums this up. Hopefully, Sony delivers on the promises and doesn't fail like with their other endeavors. If accepted once the NDA expires or if a lot of people start revealing info without consequences, I'll let everyone know what went on and if it honestly sucked or not.

Apparently people who are participating. But its okay if you don't. Just don't show your face around here again, k. =D

I hope you have fun reading about how much fun other people are having in the Beta! You can enjoy the fun in 2008! Play the Sims to tide yourself over.

Play the Sims to tide yourself over.

Actually, the Sims is probably a better idea.
Kids, take back your PS3s.
Buy the Sims. Much better. You don't have to "buy" virtual content either.

Just don't show your face around here again, k.

I hope you realize the stupidity of what you just said to someone with 7,207 posts.

what, just because you have a lot of posts makes you the bigger man? o please. i don't blame him, you pretty much demoralized his whole thread in two words. this is his thread and i bet he doesn't like it when people come on here and say "well who really gives a ****".

LOL!

Did I say that?
I simply meant that because I have 7,000 posts, it's more than likely that because I post a lot, I WILL post back in this thread.

Oh and look at that. This is my third post here.

i bet he doesn't like it when people come on here and say "well who really gives a ****".

I wouldn't either. Funny how I didn't say that, nor did I mean it as a low-blow to him. I meant it as a low-blow to Sony.

People are supposed to be excited because of an online-chatroom simulator being released in Beta? lol

I'm looking forward to it. Although it will be a while before I can get my connection back up. Currently I'm looking for a new router.

i suppose, but that's really not how it came off when you posted it. i really hate people who like to think they're hot shots because they have so many posts, so sorry if that wasn't what you meant.

I wouldn't either. Funny how I didn't say that, nor did I mean it as a low-blow to him. I meant it as a low-blow to Sony.

it's not what you exactly said, but they do both imply the same thing. once again, what you posted did not come off as the way you interpret it. also, from someone who would post about a thread about PS3 home beta, it seems like he cares. so tell me, how is this not a low-blow to him?

Can we all learn to play nice? This has gone so far off topic. The word "HOME" has not been in the last four or five posts.

Now, back on topic.

^I'd love to play nice man, but those who belittle others(especially those who really enjoy not knowing anything) have a bad tendency to show up in this section. It's almost hysterical seeing them bash a product(which none of them own) for doing things that happened to their own product.

ON TOPIC: Cool, seems great for those who own a PS3.

I hated the sims and 2nd life.. This seems like the samething to me. Just with Sony name on it.

Just saying what I think.

Yep, all half dozen of the ps3 owners

Ya, but the Mii Parade has pretty music, so its +1 above Home.

In your pocket.
From what I heard, Home is just like a forum but with 3D avatars and a place where you can share your PS3 stuff. It isn't that bad... I can see myself wasting a few hours with it.

Doggy, if you don't care, why are you posting in this thread?'

Anyway, I'm interested to see how Home turns out. I hope we'll have some vids on YouTube soon.
