I think this is 100% legit but we are getting our hopes high for nothing. This is only preparation. Yes it's a great sign of beta IMO but it doesn't mean the beta is up right now. But we can see the new site went up, the beta box art and d3 bnet stuff are up (we can highly guess it is, with the downloader ready) and now they are gathering press's accounts name to give them the beta wich is to start soon.
And just for the people talking about the e-mails when we get a blizz beta, I got my last beta mail (cataclysm) about 2 weeks after being in the beta... I was checking my inbox all summer long and when I logged on my BNET I saw the box art and was a bit frustrated about not having the e-mail. Maybe 2 weeks after I got an e-mail saying I was in the beta. Same thing for one of my friends but in his case it was maybe 5-6 days.
Last night somebody had posted the contents of the email which was just saying how they were going to be invited to the beta but they had to send their battle.net username to them to get the invite.
With that said.. for press that could be true because their personal email could be totally different from their battle.net one in which case Blizzard would need to contact them via the personal one to get the real one.
I think we all hope this means beta is out by the end of the 1st week in September but only time will tell.
