To Beta or not to Beta

Got into any of the invitation only betas? Me neither.

It’s my understanding that the invitations for recent betas of numerous games were given to those gamers who use the PlayStation Network most regularly. But if that’s the case, why the hell haven’t I been invited to any of them?

I’m talking of course, of betas for upcoming games such as Home, Killzone 2, LittleBigPlanet, Resistance 2 and the MotorStorm: Pacific Rift demo. If you were lucky enough to have been invited to any of these, then consider yourself one of the luckiest people in the world, or possibly just Europe. Either way, you’re lucky. Well, luckier than me at least.

Apart from when I’m at University or sleeping, I’m almost literally online on the PS3 all the time, if not on a game then listening to music or watching a video. And yet I haven’t been invited to any of the above betas. Not even the MotorStorm demo. How embarrassing.

Personally, I feel a little let down by SCEE with this. But what I really want to know is have any of you not been invited to any betas? And if you haven’t, do you feel as annoyed by SCEE as I do, or am I just being my over-exaggerating, hyperbolic self?
