Did anyone get an email saying that you were rejected but "You’ll STILL be getting a stuffed-to-the-gills party pack!"......?


Also, I was just wondering what's everyone's age here who signed up including those who were & were not accepted? I'm almost 32 and I we have 2 PS3's here, a SLIM & a PHAT plus lots of friends who can attend so I'm not sure what the criteria is for being selected, it seems to me they would want an adult with more than system to demo :-k.

Oh, and I'm connecting to the site via Facebook, anyone else?


Interesting, I didn't get that and I also looked and didn't get anything about the rewards thing. Mine just says:

Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming demand we received for this event, we were unable to accommodate all applicants for the PlayStation® experience.
We hope you’ll check out the PlayStation® website for the latest news on games, products and more. You can also check out PlayStation® on Facebook to stay in-the-know on product launches and smack talk with other PS3 enthusiasts just like you.

So maybe I just got the "oh look we're on facebook" variety.

Sigh. I got in, needed to be one of the first 1004 to sign-in and confirm but unfortunately wasn't able to get on the internet until around 6pm, which by then all spots were filled. So pissed at myself.

Damn that sucks, that's worse than getting rejected. What was the time when the email originally sent stating you were accepted? I'm trying to figure out when the confirmation for selected applicants is sent out.

I've never hosted before and I didn't know you needed to confirm. Also I've noticed that they always email the selected applicants the day before it's stated in the house party rules/date info so since we need to verify it's definitely a good idea to start checking our account status, they may confirm you via the site before the email even gets sent.

Here is the email I got aswell:



Subject: Save the date for a new party with PlayStation

[quote]Thanks for your interest in hosting the Ultimate Block Party presented by PlayStation®!

We can tell you’re a true PlayStation® fan, so we’re excited to announce that you’re in the running to host the second PlayStation® House Party! It’s The Ultimate Play Date House Party and it’s scheduled for September 25th — so mark your calendar!

Unfortunately, due to the overwhelming demand we received for the first party, The Ultimate Block Party with PlayStation®, we were unable to accept your host application for that experience, but that’s why we added the second party!

There’s so much exciting stuff happening at PlayStation® we couldn’t fit it all into one party experience. So we created two experiences suitable for two different age groups. And the best part? You’ll STILL be getting a stuffed-to-the-gills party pack!

In the meantime, we invite you to get the party started by joining the awesome online VIP gaming rewards program, where you can stay connected and engaged to the world of PlayStation®, earn points for free stuff, and have chances to win cool prizes! Stay tuned, we'll be in touch in two weeks to tell you more about the online program.
Thanks for partying with PlayStation® and House Party![/quote]

Found some info about what comes in the party pack.

What will be in my party package?

Your FREE party pack includes:
• Two PlayStation®Move controllers + one PS Eye Camera
• Demos of games made exclusively for PlayStation®Move
• Sports Champions™ Frisbees
• The Shoot™ photo frames
• PlayStation®Move quick start guide and product information
• Plus more great gifts to help you host an unbelievable Ultimate Block Party

So looks like no full games but frisbees!

Also legal stuff about not selling the materials.

It really does. I was rejected for the DJ hero party too. Anyway I'm thinking they probably filled up in less than hour.

Boo, I was hoping for full games but it looks like demos. Might have to order some games now. There was mention of a second party for a few people on the Houseparty site do to the vast interest in this particular party. I'm curious what those people will end up getting.

I know what you mean. I heard other people got in the day before, so I figured I probably got rejected.


Oh and did anyone else get this email?

Thanks for your interest in hosting the House Party™ presented by PlayStation®.

Even though you were chosen to host, you were not one of the first 1,000 people to respond.
However…we’re excited to announce that PlayStation® is hosting a six-month online VIP gaming rewards program, where you can stay connected and engaged to the world of PlayStation®, earn points for free stuff, and have chances to win cool prizes!
This is a separate online program that starts after the House Party. We hope you’ll apply and Play On with PlayStation™. Stay tuned, we'll be in touch in two weeks to tell you more about the online program.

Thanks for partying with PlayStation® and House Party!

Hmm..is this the same as the Playstation 3 Plus?

I got that email. At first I was thinking it was for Plus, but I don't think Plus has the whole "earn points, free stuff" thing going on. Could be wrong though, I never really looked in to Playstation 3 Plus too much.

I keep thinking this is similar to Xbox Rewards the program Microsoft introduced. Truthfully I do not mind playing games or getting achievements to win rewards or to be entered into winning prizes but if this is a "The more you buy, the more rewards you get" I could care less.

From what I read at House Party it looks like those that are getting the Move stuff will get it by the 10th of this month, I can't wait to get my hands on the controllers. Also they rolled out that "PlayStation® Online VIP Gaming Rewards Program" that was alluded to after the invites were sent out. I signed up seems like you have to work a bit to get anything, such as post photos, videos, blogs, etc but there might be potential for free stuff outside of just demos and themes.

I got an email today saying I've been accepted for the 2nd party on Sept 25th, there are 1,000 parties packs but 1,800 finalist. I'm wondering will I have to wait for the email to confirm my status or can I just check my account to confirm? also once I confirm(if I can in time) what other info will I have to provide to set up my party besides my shipping address & etc?

Got an email that said my stuff for the 1st party shipped. Should be here before the 12th!!

Edit:

Also included:

  • 2 coupons redeemable for 2 free 12 packs of Coca-Cola®, Diet Coke®, Coke Zero®, or Sprite®
  • $5 SUBWAY® Card and SUBWAY® Fresh Cateringâ„¢ Menu
The $5 Subway card seems like an odd thing to send.

When you guys get your packs you should post pictures to make us all go into a crazy blood lust. I've been ignoring this thread all month thinking it was just someone bragging about a big win.

Is anyone signing up for the other party offers?

I signed up for the first one, and got an email that said while I didn't make it for the first one, I've made the first cut for the second party scheduled sept 25th. The email says I'm one of 1800 finalists for 1000 partys and I'll get another email the week of august 23rd. The email mentions the second party is centered on eyepet, and will still include 2 move controllers, and a 'stuffed to the gills party pack' So, I guess we'll wait to see what the week of 8/23 brings.

I didn't get email notification that my party pack is on the way, however when I checked the reference number that was posted by a veteran on the House Party site I was able to see I was scheduled to get it on the 10th.
Spoiler


However when I checked this morning it was rescheduled to get it today! Again I'll believe it when I see it, but I'll definitely be taking some pictures and making a blog once everything is charged.

I think they reschedule if I remember correctly. In the meantime I posted a blog with my my party pack that did arrive if you would like to see what you are going to be getting.

Apologies for the bump, but e-mails are going out for the second party. First 1,000 to respond get in for September 25th.

Check your mail if you were on the waiting list (of sorts).

Also, this one comes with the EyePet game. It looks like that is new for this party.

Where did you see that eyepet was included?

EDIT

Nevermind. I see it now. I wonder if it is actually just a demo though.
