I wouldn't go so far as to call it a scam. People might say it was a little misleading, but I'd say that's inaccurate also. People want homebetatrial to mean different things. It just says "check back to sign up blah blah blah" (it's been posted before) and people like to put their own meanings on it. That's why they get disappointed and call it a scam. Nobody said to go to check homebetatrial everyday, and nobody said that the website was going to be the boat Home beta would initially arrive. Time to stop pretending.

It might be for the 50,000. If they open it now they'll get 15,000 in 15 minutes.
50,000 might get in in... about 1 hour.

I'm still not understanding why people are trying to argue that the site wasn't for closed beta when it's been said several times that directly on the site it says "Keep checking back on this site to register an interest in taking part in an exclusive closed Beta Trial of Home™"

Here
Check it your damn self, you can't argue that the site wasn't misleading, a scam, or misinterpreted.

Seriously, I don't think that site was for us, but for those in EU. Why? I got a response back from the address on the page; info@eu.homebetatrial.com:

" <magnum1785@yahoo.com> Subject: Re: Home Beta Invite Info Date: Wed, 9 May 2007 09:02:25 +0100 "

Maybe it was a typo? Maybe it was SUPPOSED to say "Please register an interest for the OPEN beta trial." Smiley Tongue The way I see it, is that I think they might have changed their stratedgy. With it being widely more popular(Beta Trial) then they had expected. Maybe they changed it cause they didn't want to leaf through 2.6 million registrations, an E-mail invite was more controlled. Hey, I send out 20,000, I check 20,000, I accept 15,000. Easy right?
 I was mad that I didn't get an invite and was "mislead" but hey.. that's life and I've registered my E-Mail address with all Playstations sections, so I KNOW they have mine now. Maybe I'll get in the next wave (if there's one) or in the OPEN 50,000 one. If not, I'll get it FREE in the fall Smiley Tongue
 
BTW I sent an e-mail to that address as well, but never got a response at all form them, How long did it take to get one?
