Sony announces the details on how to apply for the Playstation Home Beta Test in the United States. As reported Japanese PS3 users could already apply for the closed beta of Home in late July.
Later today, the PLAYSTATION Store will be updated with a PlayStation Home theme. By downloading the theme, you are submitting an application to join the PlayStation Home Beta test community. Sony will be using a variety of criteria including activity on the PLAYSTATION Network to determine eligibility for the Beta community.
The existing beta testers have automatically qualified to be part of the expanded beta.
SCEE is also beginning their expanded closed beta in Europe. In Europe Sony is directly targeting consumers who have been most active on PLAYSTATION Network and PLAYSTATION Store via email.
Via the official Sony Playstation blog. Update: The Playstation Home Theme is available for download in the Playstation Store. I just downloaded it. Let's see if I am lucky enough to get selected for a Home Beta Test account.
Playstation Home is the most technically advanced 3D online community that will be launching this year. It will be exciting to see if it really catches on.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
