Its seem that Watch Dogs closed beta on its way
Big game, is bbiiiiiggggg
That's small. They must have better compression than other games.
How do you get into the beta?
Not a public demo.
Suppose we'll have to see just how much of the game/map that 23gb contains. That's not all that bad a sign though 23gb is bigger than I would of expected after the footage we seen the other day. Again it could depend if the games assets aren't compressed.
Ok the size of the beta is 23gb. The size for the actual game will more than likely be a lot larger than that. Everyone should know that betas don't have all the content the given game has to offer.
Fake, its for internal use. Sounds like a click bait news article to me.
This is very likely a closed beta for testers and developers to test out the multiplayer.
I love the commentary. So arbitrary. Discussing whether or not it is compressed? What?! CSI Treatment: "Enhance. Enhance. Enhance... ahhh, yes, there we go. it MUST be compressed!" What is the decision process even based on when we have no idea what's included in their internal, closed, non-public beta likely distributed within their own development environment?
I was just saying that most games are uncompressed and has a whole bunch of useless data bloating the size (See COD Ghost,MGS 4). I'm just surprised that it's so small for a game of this scale so I hypothesized that it must be properly compressed unlike other games.
If there's a beta, I'm betting it'll be only on/first on PS4. Sony does have a marketing deal with the game so anything else just wouldn't make sense.
Exclusive betas were a quick fad that died out last gen. Beta's are supposed to be a testing phase, not an exclusive bragging free trial.
I think Destiny and The Elder Scrolls Online already confirmed exclusive betas for the PS4, so sadly I don't think the fad has died out yet. Makes no sense for a testing phase to be exclusive, all platforms should be properly tested. I guess that's not what a beta is used for anymore.
Destiny/ESO both have their betas first on PS4. If there's a Watch Dogs beta, it'll be first on PS4. (Don't know why it would need one though)
@ginsunuva thats so true
