You could be right. I wish they specified, because altough it'll last between Apr. & Aug. doesn't necessarily mean registration will begin in April. From what I've been reading, the closed BETA trials have already begun for game devs and "special people".


So by this thinking the OPEN Beta that is scheduled for Aug-OCT could start in OCT??? When HOME is scheduled for release in OCT.
 
Most OPEN BETA's are always at least a month of testing before the release.
 
Just keep an eye out on the beta site for "legit" info..



I wasn't talking about the open beta, I was talking about the closed one. I think it's safe to assume that open beta registration is a bit different than that registering for a closed beta, so you really couldn't apply the same logic. Also, the info is "legit", I even posted the link -unless of course the Home thread screwed up, which I seriously doubt because they've cited all their information.

I state "by this thinking" .....
 
The legit comment was meant your assuming the structure of the time-line. When it is posted on the homebetatrial.com it will be "legit"
Just because you post a link to something doesn't make your assumption fact..

Also, does the fact that the home beta site makes no indication that registeration will take place April worry anybody? I am fully aware of other sites, forums, and the GDC, but what better proof than the official website to second guess the trial month?

I was just re-reading the Home Thread and I came across the fact that the closed beta for 15K takes place between April AND August! This could mean that registration may not begin until summer, or even later! I don't mean to make assumptions here, because I, like all of you, eagerly anticipated Beta openings to begin sometime this month, but obvioulsy it's in plain writing. If someone can prove me wrong, I would SURELY appreciate it....if not, so God help us all.

This quote was taken from the Home Beta Trials thread a little bit more than half way down the page: http://boardsus.playstation.com/playstation/board/message?board.id=ps3home&thread.id=363

Here's the source: http://www.eurogamer.net/article.php?article_id=73998




No, that means that it will span between april and august. sign ups are in april. wow.

Sony would like to provide the beta tetsers with a long enough opportunity to find bugs and glitches before releasing the final version of Home. If we have 5 months to try it out, we can supply Sony with a lot of feedback and suggestions

Its says thats when the beta will take place. Not when its released. So its probably still in April.
