Everybody who didn't get into home beta, take a deep breath

The odds are against everyone.  think about it.  3 million PS3 sold.  take 10% of that are underground owner.  That's 300K.  only 15K beta spots (not including spots given away to members of the press), and you're looking at probably 10K for the public.

From the math, only 5% of PSU members will get in.

So let's not be angry and scream die Sony.  Let's congrat those who gets in.  Cuz eventually, we'll all get it (if it hits the October release date).  And plus, in August, it becomes 50K, so we waited 4 months already, what's another 4.

And this is why they've only sold 3 million. Because they do this scheme-y ass stuff that everyone gets pissed off at.

I thought they only sold 3 million because of the high price and lack of good games? lol.  What were you expecting?  For them to have 3 million spots open?

It's called closed beta for a reason.  You gotta cut it off where the benefits of having more people begins to saturate.
