Apparently there was a bit of a miscommunication over a letter sent by the PlayStation Underground newsletter. Supposedly, all Qore Episode 06 and annual subscribers were to be given access to PlayStation Home‘s closed beta. This is apparently not entirely true, as announced by a follow-up letter last Friday.
Those of you interested in PlayStation Home may recall that all Qore Episode 06 and annual subscribers were to be given access to Home’s closed beta. Some of the more enthusiastic of you may have actually gone and bought yourselves a copy. Well…
This email was sent out by PlayStation Underground to PSN users last Friday on October 24:
As an update to the PLAYSTATION(R)3 News email sent on Friday, October 24th, the special invitation to PlayStation(R)Home’s closed beta is available only to Qore annual subscribers who purchased subscriptions by 10/29. Qore Episode 06 purchasers will not be eligible for the special PlayStation(R)Home beta invitation at this time. We apologize for the miscommunication. Participation in PlayStation(R)Home’s closed beta is limited to those 18 years and older and requires agreement with the PlayStation(R)Home Beta Trial.
To summarize: Only those who had shelled out the US$ 25 for the annual subscription to Qore BEFORE Oct. 29 can get into the closed beta. If you bought only Episode 06, tough luck.
Thanks to tipster D-O-A for this disappointing but potentially money-saving bit of news.
