PlayStation Home Beta Extended Today

Jack Buser's Avatar + Posted by Jack Buser on Sep 19, 2008 // Senior Director, PlayStation Now

If you’ve applied for the PlayStation Home closed beta, but have yet to receive an invite, you may want to check your inbox again as we’re opening PlayStation Home’s expanded closed beta again to thousands of new beta testers. The closed beta test is going quite well, so please don’t sweat if you didn’t make today’s list, as this wave of invitations will be followed by many more before our launch into open beta.

Home - Apartment 2

Since the initial wave of new invitations went out a few weeks ago, we’ve been having an incredible amount of fun in PlayStation Home meeting each other, launching into games together, and dancing the night away by Listen@Home! To give you an idea of what we’re up to, we gave some folks in the media a sneak peak of PlayStation Home. Check out their tour recaps:

Can’t wait to see everyone in PlayStation Home – I’m always down for a game of pool or rocking the robot lock!

See you in there.

    The emails are on their way, but some might get them before others. Keep checking.

    Also, don\’t forget that today\’s won\’t be the only wave…

Why not just let anybody join and make sure they know it’s a BETA? Sounds fair to me.

I’ve been waiting patiently and anxiously but I don’t think luck is on my side with Home beta.

You know there was a website that Phil announced a long time ago http://www.homebetatrial.com/ that say “keep checking back” and it’s had the same exact image and “check back” saying for like a year now. No luck I tell ya! None!

I dumped over 130 hours in Burnout alone, so the whole “network activity” thing for the beta is BS.

What I’ve been reading on other websites is they get the beta, use it about 5 times and get bored of it. Let the REAL people that want to test it in Sony!

i signed up by downloading the theme! will i get the invite? :(

Hope that means you included Puerto rico into the extended beta invite but looking at Life With Playstation it’s probably a no.

Cool but will the open beta be open to everyone or just a few people.

    It might take a bit to get through your email system. You might want to check back again.

Cool thanks for the heads up. I hope some of my friends get in this time around so I’ll actually have some people to chill with.

Woot. I hope I get my invite. I would love to beta test Home but haven’t been given ample opportunity yet. From what I read also is that the beta is quickly approaching 1.0. Hopefully that means that even if we don’t get in this time, that the open beta isn’t too far off and should be arriving sometime soonish. Thanks for the chance to be part of this Sony, and maybe I’ll see you in Home.

To Jack…

Hey jack.. i have a very important question… i have been a beta tester since april 2007 and i was very active in home.. but i was out of town when i received the email for the beta key upgrade…

Sadly when i got back home i couldn’t find the beta key anymore.. i guess between all the playstation emails i erased it by mistake.. i know is my fault but i have called and emailed many times to sony and nobody seems to help me.. could you please look into it.

My psn is: BulletTooth228

i would appreciate it.. i miss home big time…

Thanks for your time.

@ #15
You are right about that.
They should just let people who want to be in the beta.Because the beta tester only complain about it instead of appreciated!

Guys please let us use music in our space and put up our own pictures again. This current build is lacking so much when it was first announced. Even more people added to the beta won’t help the boringness if there is nothing to do. I don’t see a reason for the service if I can’t listen to my music, watch my videos, download from the store, or even view my images. All of that can be done on my XMB so why use home? I love the thing but it needs more work.

@32 You need to download the Home theme from PSN. That supposedly acts as your application.

As long as it doesn’t brick my PS3 I wouldn’t mind if EVERYONE would beta test it.

Wouldn’t that really iron out all the kinks?

+ noelpioroda on September 19th, 2008 at 12:14 pm said:

Yeah, I don’t think emails that will come in thousands at once won’t come just within a few minutes. Just check your emails later maybe at like atleast half an hour or an hour later from now… otherwise, I didn’t get a invite :(.
