I am still pretty sure the cutoff date was the 28th, and the e-mail was sent on the 29th to discourage people to subscribe after the fact.

I got the email this morning (the 30th), and no prior warning that there was any kind of deadline, or that the home beta was even going to be available through qore. i mean, why should we hafta pay to be testers anyway?

 

I registered on the home beta site MONTHS ago, and i've been very active on the PSN. i don't know how they're picking their candidates, but it seems to be kinda lopsided

BULL S**T! The Cutoff was ON the 29th! Not the 28th!

 

If the cutoff was before the 29th then the email would have said BEFORE the 29th. HOWEVER it said BY the 29th, which means you had until 11:59:59 PM EST to buy Annual and still get an invite!


Heh, your upset because if what I said is true you wont be getting an invite.
 The truth is, this  kind of language (by 10/29 and "at this time") are purposely used in things like this to leave loopholes for Sony to change the offer. Every company does it, its nothing new.
 If Sony saw too many people purchase Qore on the 29th, they may not offer it to those on the 29th. The phrase "by 10/29" can be interpreted as on and before 10/29 or just before 10/29.

Sony could of had made loads of cash by selling  each invite 24.99 a piece..  I guess they dont want money.

That's pretty standard for sure, it could mean before or on. I bought Qore last night as i didn't have my system hooked up before then (due to moving). I also didn't know anything about the qore/beta thing until i recieved the email and thought i'd pop over to the forums to check it out. It be nice to get in the beta, but it's not what i bought qore for. The exclusive early demos and in depth looks at titles is more what i was after.
