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

i bet will be in beta till the release of the ps4, n then watch it become a premium paid service, who knows, just a guess.
I'd pay for it...As a 1 time payment tho
