The initial phase of the closed BETA, starting on 17th of March, will only be open to selected US PSN IDs.

As with most BETA programs, in order for the development team to capture data in an optimal manner, the sample size needs to be increased gradually and in stages. While we begin to roll out the BETA, we have decided that the time differences across the U.S. are best matched to the development team in Tokyo.

During the initial phase, our servers will be open for users during specific times across the day. We will share these times closer to the BETA launch across our social channels and GT.com.

So, someone on GT Planet suggested code roll out in the U.S. might be by Time Zone. Might make sense considering they state there are only certain times during the day that the beta is open. Might make sense.

Hmmmm, not seeing it on the website. is it from playstation notification? says 0

Not sure what criteria they are going by to choose people. Signed up early, been on my account since 2008. Played the gt5 trial as well as gt5 but not gt 6.

Here I believe: http://playstation.com/en-us/
Login and look at the notifications/messages in the upper-right corner. Not sure if you can start the download tho
I didn't realize this site existed after all this time lol (always go to the store)

Nothing for me so far. I was in the 4.50 firmware beta so with my track record, I won't be selected for anything else for a good 2 years.

Did a bit of stalking on psnprofiles.com, and both the gtplanet user and fellow gaffer played a fair bit of both GT5 and GT6.
Could be just a coincidence of course.

Yeah, I'd hope that isn't the only way to get in but maybe.... good stalking. You'd assume they have some sort of system set up to choose people though.... random wouldn't really make sense imo and they said "chosen" so yeah that is something I had been asking since the first day of sign ups.

Yeah, I wanted this real bad as it's the only sim I can get into (visuals, driving) and really curious to see how this one is. I still want to play gt6 as well.

Atleast interested to see how the beta is if I just can't play it.

Is it a code they send you to then input and d/l? Still hope I can luck out if it is and anyone gets extras. Won't be home for near 20 hours after I take my plane tomorrow anyways.

Can check the messages on that site or playstation. (I assume it's the from playstation notification)

Hey OP maybe you can add some of these details to the top of your OP with a disclaimer as I also wouldn't like to get too much fluff in between any game information and screens etc :)

any of you that signed up early (played gt5/6 in the past) and haven't gotten a code yet?

I'm using the PS App on my phone to monitor Notifications while stuck at work.

I'd use the app but I'm in china and the store is sort of borked on my phone not to mention Google everything so I think last time I tried it couldn't get streaming to work on my Sony ž.

This isn't preventing me getting the beta though on my us psn account. I'd definitely be on the app if I could though.
