Playstation Home & Europe

35 replies 22 views Edited Jun 20, 2007
Well as I live in europe (UK) there is No chance of me being in the Closed Beta and I expect it's the same for the Open Beta.

Its a shame all us europeans bought the PS3 and still we are unable to have the benifits all the people in america.

Now my pc starts and the first thing that loads are "www.homebetatrial.com" so I can check the website. (No Change)
When I go on my PS3 I allways check for a system update and the playstation store regardless of any notifications.

First of all it was said that playstation home was coming in September 6th and now no surprise its changed to October.

What are your views on Sony's non releases to Europe?

This is no rant, just a discussion.

Well my first answer as a European (UK) is that only Americans can be a part of GAP in which only allows them to register their PS3 and recieve beta's.

My second answer is that Americans are getting more benefits from the PS3 when Europeans have to wait weeks to recieve some of them.

I'm pretty sure it would be somewhat fair if American Playstation 3's were exactly the same as the Europeans?

The pal territories have always been low selling regions, it shouldn't be that far of a stretch to see why sony isn't paying as much attention to the pal areas.

Right, but Europe has a beta forum... America doesn't. The homebetatrial site is for the Open Beta, not the closed beta... at least thats what I believe.
