im 34 and i got an invite.

I suspect it has a smuch to do with age as it does with amount of time online and what opart of teh country you are in. Since this is a true beta test, they want a huge cross section. It would be foolish to have all 21 year old white males from california who play online games for 2.3 hours per day.
Im sure they want folks like me who use there ps3 maybe 3-4 hours per week, and folks who use there ps3 for 8-12 hours per day. Same for the actual beta. Im sure they want to see how users have different experiences being on home for only 1 hour a day versus 12 hours a day. Like will they get bored should there be time limits. This is all testing so they can produce a quality finished product, but also so they can find there targer demographic. As they mentioned in the trailers, this will be a free service and there will be ads and product endorsements and things of that nature. To sell ads you have to know your market.

Just my 2 cents worth!

I'd be real interested in seeing how many of the invitees are multiple console owners cuz that could be a big factor in the selection as they are trying to compete with Wii & 360 and what better way to do it then to get input from ppl who actually own the systems........... i remember filling out a survey for sony in early february and it asked me what other consoles i owned and how much time i spent on each one

Home isn't competing with Wii or 360, it isn't competing with anything, it's a completely new concept.

It really wouldn't matter, because in order to sign up for the PlayStation Underground, and a Master PlayStation 3 account, you have to be 18+.
