Re: PS3 home

Just downloaded it, 77MB so not too bad.
Had to switch off then as the kids came back. Boo  Smiley

Re: PS3 home

How do you get a code? Can you apply for one or is it by invitation only?
I'm keen to see what all the fuss is about.

Re: PS3 home

ooh - i'd quite like one of these - i'm not sure what triggers the invite - i know in the US you had to download the home theme... i got into the killzone 2 beta, but thats it.

Re: PS3 home

yeah i'd quite like an invite as well if anyone knows how to get one!
I'm the only one on my team at Plusnet who isn't a Xbox 360 guy, so looking forward to getting Home and making them all jealous!  Grin

Re: PS3 home

Seems they are sending them out in order-ish that you registered your PS3 with Sony.
Friends who got theirs before me got their invites before me.
I've managed to have about 30 mins on it now and it requires extra downloads, think I've downloaded about 200MB of maps and info so far and I've only been to a bowling alley and a town square.
Don't worry about been the only PS3 guy, just think of the money you've saved not having to pay for XBOX live  Wink

Re: PS3 home

I've e-mailed help@uk.playstation.com asking for one for each of my two sons. I'll let everyone know if that works.

Re: PS3 home

You only need one code for all accounts on the PS3 if your sharing ..

Re: PS3 home

I got a reply from Sony. Basically they said "we've got enough volunteers so no"  Sad
Hopefully it will be released to everyone soon.

Re: PS3 home

Currently its a closed/invitation only Beta but by the end of the year its going to be open to all, so hopefully not too long to wait until we can all join in too.

Re: PS3 home

Most of the other folk I know who got invites for the Home beta were launch day buyers. It looks like it could be fun but i've not really had much time to "play" with it yet.

Re: PS3 home

According to a number of sources, (Google "Sony home" in Google News), the open Beta launches tomorrow (11 December). Looks like you will be able to download it from the PlayStation Store.
