the survery asks for your PSN account name so they might just patch the store for people who get into the beta



Yes, I know it asks for the PSN name. I got an invite. But wouldn't that be hard to go into the servers to alter someones PS store for the beta? Mabye they will send some sort of message to your PSN which has a link that when clicked on the message it goes to the PS3's web browser. By clicking that link gives you autherization that, that is your PSN and you download the beta directly from the site to your PS3.


thats probably what they will do actually

It's a beta test guys, wake up. If the rest of the crowd gets Home by download, beta testers WILL get Home by download. They will even likely try to get most of the testers to download it on the same day, just to see how their servers will react.  Same thing with the second phase.  Can you just imagine how hot those servers will be on the official release day?  They have to be tested as well, so Beta testers will download... End of story.

I think it will be a download as Mail cost money maybe not alot of money to sony but enough that they aint gonna pay to send something out for free that they wont make money back on seeing how Home is FREE.......
 
Go figure a regular letter envelope is $0.39 time that by 15,000 (as thats what supposedly the Closed beta consist of)  thats $5,850.00  but this is a cd so would be in a bigger envelope, weigh more,  So lets see just for postage thats atleast $1.50 x 15,000 = $22,500  and thats not even including the cost of the actual envelope..
 
 
So I think it will just be a DL in the PS Store...

You bring up costs for sony to send out a actual disk rather than have a download. If sony does decide to go the disk method it will not cost them anything. In all actuallity the entire cost's it would cost is a tax right off. That means sony will end up doing it free in the long run.

It would be better for them to offer it as a download. All they have to do is clear your account to recieve the data and only you will be able to download. Pretty secure and effecient.

It counts as tax write off in the sence that it is bussiness aspect. Just because they are not donating to charity or church it can still be wrote off. Donating is only one of many tax write off's. Company cars can be wrote off. Hell if you go to church every week and donate money to it you are allowed to write that off.
