You did some math.....ok now add the rest of the world to that equation!!
 
HOME is going to be a worldwide BETA. Also , your 2000 ppl quote is a guess. How can you make these assumptions??
 
I suggest you talk to your math teacher again, or at least pay attention in class.

Your numbers are extremely under-estimated! There are also countless people interested in the Home beta who haven't even glanced at this site. You'll see just how quick sign-ups will be swamped in approx. 0.000000001 seconds of the initiation.

I am sure the OP's math is off as he is guessing at numbers, but I know many PS3 owners that only heard about Home though me, and probably won't apply to enter the Beta. I remember hearing a stat on another Sony Forums (Star Wars Galaxies) that only a small portion of people actually visit and participate in forums, and that the voice of the people on the forums is actually a minority, which is why the opinions stated here are not treated as the majority. That being said, I would expect 20% or less of PS3 owners to sign up for the trial program or are even aware that there is a trial, considering there are around 2 million PS3s out there right now, that is 400,000 applicants. I don't remember how many people they said would be part of the April trial, but I would guess they would need at least 1000, which gives each person a roughly 0.25% (1 in 400) chance of getting in.
 
Again, these are my guesses, but I believe they are more reasonable. It won't be easy to get into the trial. I hope that the selection won't just be a completely random selection of people but rather they have some sort of survey that will help people who want to get into the trial to help beta test, rather then just people that want a sneak peak or even to start enjoying the features early.
