Sign up only from ps3 browser?

34 replies 24 views Edited Apr 4, 2007
Don't u guys all agree that only people with a ps3 shud be able 2 sign up for the beta, becuase people could try to hold a spot until they get their ps3, if sony made it so that you could only sign up from the playstation 3 browser then only people who have a hold of a ps3 could sign up for the beta trial, sony would be smart to do that.

OR, they could make it so that only anyone with a PSN account can sign up. If you have a PSN account, then you have a PS3.

i dont think right now there is an actual way of telling if one is visiting the site on the ps3 browser.

actualy there is a way to tell what kinda of in ternet conection, processor,operating system, and fire wall program that you are running any time you connect to a web page. but i doubt that sony would go through the trouble. i amagine they will just send a update to each pearson selecteds ps3 as to the fact that there is no other way to have a psn id without access to a enternet atached ps3.

Here's most likely what they will do.
 
They will require the MAC address of your PS3, just like they use to activate your Resistance Stats: This both provides proof of ownership AND an identity so that you can download the software ONLY to the system you have registered. Your PSN-ID will also be used to link your Username to your console and that's the simplest way to have it done.

Sony uses the browser method for PSP betas. It is a way of verifying that you physically own the console.

Why not just have an option for us to sign up for the beta in the sony playstation store? Wouldn't that simplify things? However there is allready a website posted that says to check back regularly to sign up.
