Exactly what I was thinking about the emails. Why would you just not send the number you want for the beta? They should of known that sending out more then they wanted were going to lead to pissed off people. They did not handle this very well IMO.

Sorry but how are we suppose to feel? Now you got people who got in show boating and those who got the email figuring they had a chance to find out they do not. So let us know how we should feel.

i totally agree they didnt handle it the right way. the only thing they have been doing good lately is dissapointing loyal customers and pushing them off into other companies hands.

What is going on with sony, I see all the new accounts that just signed up about two months ago saying that they have just downloaded the home beta from the store. I mean atleast give it to some people who  have been here atleast a year or more. I see all these newbies claiming that they have recieved the download. Sony if you dont want information leaked , give it to someone who has been on the boards for a while. When i was selected to be in the gap it was a honor ,i felt good about it. It took me like 5 months to get in the GAP. Now it seems in order for someone to get in they  just  need to set up a account. This is a slap in the face to your loyal gap members, and another thing is why did you send out all those e-mails if everyone was not going to get in, i mean wouldnt the person who is receiving the mail automatically qualify for beta, once they signed up. !'m not hating on the newbies or anything because i know that you guys do not control this, but sony should think a little before making these choices. Yes newbies should have a chance to be in beta but those spots shuld go gap members first.


I truly do beleive that its random....I dont have proof but I just feel it just may be....

I believe it was random. Just how they choose GAP members. Has nothing to do with how good of a member you are, how many posts, games or hardware you have.

You're an adult, and while it is disappointing, we should be mature enough to not flame everyone else.  We don't know the criterea that Sony used for selection, so let's just take a step back and breathe deep for a few minutes.

Life is full of disappointments, and I'm sure we've all experienced some in the past.

I know. This is why Nintendo is beating Sony's brains in. So many people have been screwed by Sony that it's to the point of being sad. I bought 3 friggin PS2s because they were built like paper airplanes.
 
But who cares, right? Someone will come in here and tell me to pipe down, but that's how it is... rock the boat and you'll be asked to walk the proverbial plank.

I wasn't flaming anyone, just asking how we should feel.

the way things are looking for the ps3 the perverbial plank may be the best situation. and we are not flamming every one we are flaming sony for how the are acting to things. i congradulate the people who got in for getting in. but sony needs to pull their heads out and get stuff together or they will flop like the dreamcast did not so long ago. its just sad to see what its coming down to.

Me personaly...I feel happy for my fellow GAP members that got the nod.  I sent s few PM's congratulating the ones I know and have on my PSN friends list.
 
I have beta tested with some of these people before and I feel comfort in the fact they will do what is required and put in the effort to help make the final product better for the rest of us when it is released to the public.
 
To me personaly beta testing was not about me, it was about doing my part to make games better for my fellow gamers.
