Home Beta Slow Rollout Theory

17 replies 4 views Edited May 4, 2007
ok suppose only 150-250 got in like some think. Are they slowly rolling it out to not slam the Home server..(not the download server) they may not know what 15k people will do to a server running home yet.and if they are slowly rolling out the beta. the seeming randomness of their picks may be that their hooking up people according to the order people responded to the first emails in...just a thought ...just a hope...now....click your heels 3 times and say "theres no place lke home. theres no place like home  theres no place like home."
 
now check your email...LOL

It would be nice but at this point holding on to the hope that you'll get in looks more and more like a pipe dream than any sence of reality.

When they updated the store, I'm sure they included all those intended.  I just got out of work a couple hours ago...I'm sure many won't check their email or the store till Fri or even the next day...or maybe even the day after that.

Sounds like wishful thinking to me. I'd estimate more like at least 1000 people have gotten it. (I didn't get it) But what I find funny is that even with 1000 or less people, screenshots of home have already been leaked on the internet and people have already broken the NDA... And I wasn't even planning on showing the private beta to my best friend

it serves them right for how horribly they picked the people.

you dont think that everybody who responded to that email hasnt been keeping a watch..as soon as the euro beta rolled out everybodys been watching.i doubt even 10000 people wouldnt be chcking. ya spend 600 bux on a machine nothing is happening on ...YET! and you get an invite for this...your gonna be watching if you responded. most people have internet access at work....and use it.

Quite a number of people have gotten the beta after periodically checking their store for hours. It could be possible, who know. However, the fact that there are indeed confirmation emails sent, I think its done for already.

I was told there was only 300 people in the beta. This could be not everyone got it installed or simply didn't find it being Sony hid it in stupid places in the Store. This a scavenger hunt?
