me want beta now

Lame for most 360 owner's (& all PS3 owner's). The idea of a beta, correct me if im wrong, is to get your game fully tested so at release you have a lot less problems and can impliment any added feature's that were raised as a result of the beta test process?

Not, so you can charge people to get into be beta by forcing them to sign up to a website just so YOU can pay to improve the quality of THEIR game (while reducing their QA costs) and then get charged again at launch.

Someone please let me know who exactly own's IGN? I've got a guess but im not sure (MS?)

Developers have done this before with PC beta's but i never thought the trend would cross over into the console domain. Make it an OPEN BETA or dont bother at all, thats my feelings.

sense about it doesn't it mighty_douche ....I mean they are essentially asking you to pay them to do the job of regular Beta-Testers???? when its you doing them a favor to take your time to Beta test and provide feedback to ensure they deliver the best possible product......

I don't think you will have to pay to get a key.

IGN is owned by Fox.

I used a site exploit a while back that gave me a couple of free Founder's Club subscriptions. :D
The exploit doesn't work anymore, though.

I just hope the environments are as destructible as they claim. Alot of games tout that kind of thing only to find it is just some walls that can be damaged.

keywords Partial Destruction

Watch the latest interview video.

Be glad its not total destruction, Imagine if you would that you're in the defensive situation and enemy arty the whole town from a KM away. You are left with flat ground in which to sit and wait for their offensive.

If anyone played 1942 with dc mode, there was one map (battle of something) which was all flat ground and was all vehicles including tanks, SCUDS etc. One coudn't spawn without dying split sec later unless u were in a tent cuz enemy us to surround the area and blast it with scuds, tanks, arty. That was very painful for the opposing team,
