Sony make up your mind....

14 replies 10 views Edited May 5, 2007
Okay so first I received the INVITE email from Sony and took their small survey.    Then on May 2nd, 2007 I received an ACCEPTANCE Letter from Sony which read.
 
 
"Welcome to Home Beta.

Dear G.A.P. Member,

Congratulations! We're pleased to let you know that you have been selected to take part in the official Home beta!

As you know, Home is a 3D networked community exclusive to the PLAYSTATION®3 system and the PLAYSTATION®Network. In Home you can meet friends, create your own personal apartment, play games and access a whole new world of entertainment.

Starting on May 3rd, 2007, you'll be able to download the Home beta from the PLAYSTATION®Store using your PLAYSTATION®Network User ID. Simply click on the "Featured Items" tab on the PLAYSTATION®Store and you'll find the download waiting for you.

In addition, you will have access to online beta forums. We will contact you via email once those go live.

We look forward to seeing you at Home. Congratulations again and have fun!

Sincerely,

The PlayStation® Underground™"

 

Woohoo I was accepted so last 2 days been trying to download it from the Playstation Store but wasn't there...  So I called Sony they told me I would have to email the webmaster... So I emailed the Webmaster and they said sorry at this time we have no support for home in place (so I am screwed)...

 

Then late lastnight I received a Deniel email which reads...

 

"

Welcome to Home Beta.

Dear G.A.P. member,

Thanks for your recent interest in the Home beta test. At the moment, we have all the beta testers we need for this phase. But don't lose hope: we will be expanding the beta and adding participants weekly over the next several weeks. Watch your inbox, because we'll be contacting the next wave of beta testers very soon!

And, if you don't get selected for this round of beta testing, there may be future Home beta test opportunities in the near future.

So, don't give up. More chances to participate in a Home beta test are coming. Hope we'll see you at Home.

Thanks!

The PlayStation® Underground™"

 

 

So Sony you need to make up your D#*@ mind don't tell people they are selected then retract on your statement and come back and say oh sorry you weren't selected.. thats just rediculous.

Well, because you could not download Home I'm assuming that means you are no longer one of the lucky few that are part of the beta. There was probably a deadline that you had to meet to download the software.

That e-mail does not say you were denied at all ...... look at the glass half full not half empty ..... it says they will need more people as time goes along .... no where does it say you have no chance.

yes it does say that so let me rephrase what I said..   "I got a rejection letter stating I have been denied for now. even though I already received an acceptance letter stating I was accepted and can download the software beginning May 3rd."    No matter the wording of the rejection letter doesn't get by the fact that I received a letter stating I was accepted and can download the software...  Now if I was a jerk I would send Sony a bill for wasting my time I usually bill my customers $60/hr with a 2 hour min...  Lets see I checked the store every hour for 2 days thats 48 hours so $60 x 48 = $2,880.00    okay Sony send me my money

Not exactly randomly...

He was very lucky to be chosen for the closed beta, and Sony took an interest in his participation, so now he gets to try it out
