Those are my 2 cents


I know what you mean.. I have at least 4 people on my friends list who I know for a fact won't report a single bug or take part in any stress test etc...

All we can do now is hang on to a small thread of hope about the slow rollout (a friend of mine got his invite this morning after checking all night).. If not August/Luanch

Right, that's why I'm a little disappointed of the process, because if there was no beta we would have to wait until final release anyway, but the whole purpose of it is that testers (not trialists) do the job for free, in other companies they pay around 40k a year to a bug seeker for that. I guess that filter is what makes the final cut better, the only hope I see here to get in is that they need to set up more servers in order to let more people in, and that is what's delaying the delivery of the betas.

That's a great point. That's why I am not mad about testing the beta. I don't Ally my self with any console or company who makes them so if I don't get in something like the Home beta, I won't hold a grudge. Plus, I will always have something to do (I have PS3 360 and Wii..and it's getting hot outside ).
 
I'm playing Spiderman on PS3 right now. My little brother and I play the Wii when he comes over my house. Plus there is a certain beta coming out on the 360 in a few weeks that I'm in. All this with the summer coming up should keep me occupied until sign-ups begin again (if I don't forget about them)....I say if you didn't get in, enjoy other things....I'm know the people who got in are not spending 24 hours testing the beta...so you shouldn't spend 24 hours being depressed about not getting in.

You know what I'm talking about qvic, I'll add you to my ps3, and yeah actually it got me more disappointed the fact that I've purchased F.E.A.R. and now I feel like the worst 60 bucks I've ever spent.

I just hope I can get into the beta later this month, in May is my b-day, and it should be damn sweet if I had Home before it, that should be a kickass birthday present. lol
