Are We Beta Testers?

Or are we still?
I hardly hear the 'Beta' word mentioned much anymore. Thoughts?

Yes we are.

The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

I would say yes.

Always new products and projects coming out to test. So in a way to me personally, I consider us all beta testers.

I think it still says Beta on the logo. I may be wrong though.

Yea lol we are the 5 or 6 year Beta testers of Home. Personally I believe once the PS4 debuts Home will be either forgotten by the management or just turned off completely. Then on the PS4 there will be another social type place that will not have the "Beta" tag. Plus w/ a beta tag it gives them certain leeway's that I don't believe they can have if  it's not considered Beta

If this is a beta, its like no beta I've ever heard about. On Home, communication with the Sony developers is filtered thorugh the community managers and seems to be mostly one way. Customer service doesn't cover Home, presumbably because its in beta, yet shouldn't there be more discussion back and forth between the users and developers concerning support issues? 

 

As long as support is handled by posting in a forum, I would say we're still beta testers.

if we are beta testers then   that users  find consistently and easily replicated glitches and bugs and even potential exploits should be treated as valuable aid to the home community in helping the home core team eradicate the problems that exist within home

not stating that i agree with any of the above just that it seems to be a certain paradox with the beta status as a lot of users get suspended for pushing homes boundaries or is this just sonys way of giving up and not wanting or being unable to stabilise and secure the platform
