Playstation Home Beta?

18 replies 303 views Edited Jul 20, 2008

I am repeatedly reading about playstation home's release of the beta coming this fall. What is it meant by beta? Is it just a demo in other words?

No a Beta is where you test it for glitches and problems.

In software development, a beta test is the second phase of software testing in which a sampling of the intended audience tries the product out. (Beta is the second letter of the Greek alphabet.) Originally, the term alpha test meant the first phase of testing in a software development process. The first phase includes unit testing, component testing, and system testing. Beta testing can be considered "pre-release testing." Beta test versions of software are now distributed to a wide audience on the Web partly to give the program a "real-world" test and partly to provide a preview of the next release.

Yes, until the open beta (which mean pretty much anyone can get into it).

The beta is a program that comes out before the finished program.  In some ways it is like a demo this upcomeing beta will not have all the rooms that Home will have EX the trophie room will not be in the beta as well as many other things.  Some betas still have bugs that need to be worked out and tests then need to be run on them before there finished.

 

 

This will be my 2,000 post!!!

Grave digger? Anyways....

 

I watched about 2min of it and it kinda sum what I think of Home open beta. It's in constant evolution, pushing the boundaries at every core updates and with every new games of functional items. Therefore the never ending beta.

Grave Digger is the name of my favorite monster truck LOL.

 

I was asked when I first got into Home? I was in closed beta, I think in 2007? I remember the original central plaza and it wasn't in the video. Nothing was open just the plaza, it was like window shopping. Anyways, when did closed beta start?
