I'm in the same boat. I got an email this morning from sony saying I am invited to the beta with a code. However when I try to enter it into PSN I get 'may not be correct or no longer valid'. Could they have sent the same code out to multiple people?
I also can't seem to go to the PSN beta forums. So maybe the email is a mistake?
Did you sign up using a US account you created to access the US store? if so then it probably is region-locked so that would be why you're not able to redeem the code, perhaps if you login to your US account you can redeem it there instead?

You don't have to have a beta badge to be in a beta,
Yeah, I was aware of that, but was told - perhaps incorrectly - that the first wave of beta codes was going to the beta community first. Or maybe the second wave followed very closely afterwards.

I don't own a US account. I also signed up using the link in the EU blog - so I believe it's safe to assume I signed up to the right page. Maybe I have a US beta code somehow. Would it work on any US account? So in theory I could make one and it would work?

Hmm, final question... When you signed up to express your interest in the beta, did you us
If it was the latter, your problem is explained. If it was the former, then something seems to have gone a bit skewhiff.

Fairly sure I used the EU one. I used the link from the EU blog (I have it bookmarked and first found out about it from that blog). I shall try to create a US account tonight and see if it work with that.
Edit - I can confirm it worked perfectly with an US account. Either I somehow managed to go to the US sign up page from the EU blog or they sent me an US code by accident.
Oh well. I can play it now at least
