How can that opinion even make sense if there would be 13,000 spots to fill?

Yeah, I would have to agree with you. Why would Sony waste the time to send out over a million e-mails just to select 15,000. I for one think if you got the e-mail you are priveledged. If you get in then you are golden. nuff said.

of the 1.3 million signed up for HOME, there isnt that many that have a PSU account. Of the ones that have a PSU accoundt, only a percentage of them are in GAP. Of the small percentage that is in GAP, only a percentage of them will have checked their email and replied in time.

Prehaps it's done in phases.
 
I've never been in a closed beta where everyone started at the sametime. 
 
Closed Beta Phases
Phase 1 - accpeted 3500 beta trialist from email invites
Phase 2 thru 3 - 3500 from homebetatrial.com
Phase 4- 4500 from homebetatrial.com

I even made the home signup my homepage but all it ever said was to keep checking back to register an interest in signing up for the beta.  It still says that, I do wish I had gotten in.

Well mabye developers are included, or they want the rest  to sign up on the site. They could have sent those emails just to give the PSU community a head start in getting to try HOME

Well, I doubt 13,000 spots would be needed for developers... That's around 100 characters per developer
 
Right now, most people know that about 30,000 people recieved invites
If only 15,000 invites were sent, not every particpant would be eligible. If the pool is increased, there is a wider selection of people who qualify for the closed beta

No way that a million people got emails. My guess is around 7000-8000 no more!

There is no way that millions of e-mails were sent out. Because i would have one then....
