I'm sure more then a few people are curious...

8 replies 5 views Edited Oct 25, 2008

I wonder how many people will get invited with the next

couple of rollouts they have planned.  I didn't start watching

this really close until recently, so I have no idea how many folks

have been invited at any given time. I think they just released

1.0 recently, so it was kind of odd that no invitation went

out this week.  Typically companies like to send out new

invitations every couple of builds depending on the need

and applicaton.

 

Of course all anyone can do is speculate as to the amount

at this point unless you work for Sony.  But still it begs the

question.  Is it..100..1000...2000?

There is a document floating around from last years expected beta and it estimated about 50K for the "Open Beta", but that title has now been slapped on what will be the actual release candidate a'la G-Mail.  And they should be handing out invitations soon so when they are ready for the testers to test servers stress then they will ask more people to join the testing crew, don't be surprised if it contains mostly Qore annual subscribers, if they do it that way it must mean that the Qore annual members are a group that is large enough and specific enough to meet the specifics of what they are looking for in test results...  There was a comment on the blog stating that they were working on getting Qore annual subscribers into the closed beta before it is completed.

Yeah I just seen the news about Annual Qore members.  It's almost like

baiting the very desparate to pay to get into a beta.  Sad really, but effective.

 

The European Home community rep did say that there would be invites in

the coming weeks, geez I hope this is not what he was talking about.

I started to create a post with a poll to find out how many people

here are desparate enough to pay for Qore to get into the

Home beta.  But I'm entirely too lazy for that.

They also said that people that subscribe to Qore would get an invite to 

R2, but many of them haven't.  So I wouldn't count any chickens

just yet.

 

Edit:  For the record I've never purchased Qore in any way and I got invited to R2. =)
