Our newcomer experience with the product is precisely why we'd be a good candidate... a good beta offers to invite ALL types of individuals. This helps ensure a good variety of response... unless the closed beta is just a bone tossed to long time users and the input received during the beta is irrelevant.
you have only been here a month and just got your PS3. no offense but why would you get invited to it?
Actually, "new" user or not... it's not like using the PS3 is rocket science... I've got a dozen games, I dual boot into Ubuntu Linux, I've written my own version of a Red Kawa style media server for the PS3 and I've got dozens of work units completed in Folding@Home... even though I'm a "new" PS3 user, I'm a very "experienced" user as well.
Oh well... I just hope the invited beta testers give Home a really good workout...
