Sony should have just never started that site in the first place. Open registration isn't the way to go, but if you advertise that it's going to happen that way then you should stick to that.
 
They should've planned this out much better.

Or at least post on the site what was required to at least be randomly picked for beta testing.
 
I forgot to register both my PS3 here on this site... Thought just logging onto the PSN was enough =/

whatever the case something is suppose to happen to that site on the 29th of April. If you look at the page source (ctrl+u) it says the page will expire on the 29th of April. So who knows what will happen after then. I'm willing to bet that sony will gradually add more beta testers to Home despite what was said about only a set limit.

I wont go that far, but I really am pissed off. I checked that site multiple times a day thinking I actually had a shot at getting in. What a screw job this turned out to be.



Exactly, that is why I am so pissed as well.  I have accepted and backed a lot of lies and the "wait it's still early" and the "be patients" that have flown around the internet.  But, WHY would you create a site and give the illusion of a sign up only to do a closed sign up closed beta testing?  That is absolute BS. 


Welcome to the boards ladies and gentleman.

Betas have and always will be run through Playstation Underground. In order to be accepted, you have to sign up for beta trials on your profile page, and register machines, games, anything to help your cause. Ive never ONCE checked that site hoping to be able to sign up because it always comes through the PSU and email address. Just because your new and didnt know this, doesnt mean its time to rag on Sony about how its their fault.

Thats not true, you have to supply your PSN ID. Which only works for PS3.

If you were smart enough to read this sentence forward, put it in your sig.

LOL isnt it funny how Sony gives everything to members who are not as dedicated to others? I saw a guy when the last gap invites went out who didnt have anything registered and 2 post.

Yes I am not happy either.  I literally check that site 3 times a day waiting to sign up on the site.  I need a day to relax cause, right now I don't even want to look at my ps3.  I was really looking forward to testing out HOME.  I have owned a ps1, ps2, psp, and ps3 all on the date of launch.  There are other companies that don't make false sites that go for nothing.  Might have to check those OTHER companies out. 


your the kind they dont want it goodbye
