Looking forward to it

LATE July isnt bad at all considering The PS4 Exclusive beta starts in Mid-Late July (17th)

.. not much of a (timed) exclusive beta if you ask me.

Just weird.

Yeh as soon as I saw the title of this article I was like "as opposed to mid July?" lol ...whatever I can't hate on my fellow Xbox gamers, y'all need to get on this ..it's fun. And PS4 still ruleees!

The Xbox version comes out 4 days after the PS version.
r1sh12  +   304d ago
there quite a theme with new games.
Most have betas and most are co-op in some way.

I think this game looks and will be great.

LOL, what is up with all the disagrees about getting excited about a Beta? Things were definitely different on the PS4' Destiny Beta news.
Volkama  +   304d ago
Enthusiasms disgusts me. I would disagree one thousand times if I could.
rowdyBOY  +   304d ago
alright , 360 version 4 me .

still havent got a new gen console
Edvin1984  +   304d ago
Thats fine I am sure you'll have fun regardless. I had the chance of playing the Alpha really impressed by the game, and looking forward to it.
cfc83  +   304d ago
I doubt that there's a great deal of difference. The mechanics and all the things that make the game good will be on all platforms. In terms of graphics, it's not really a ground breaking game anyway. Pre ordering it after playing the alpha.

Pre-order required?
Jdoki  +   304d ago
I think so. I got a code with my pre-order for beta access - but that was on PS4, so don't know if it's the same for 360 / XB1
No_Limit  +   304d ago
It's the same. I actually have both the PS4 and XB1 beta code as I initially did pre order both versions.
theRell  +   304d ago
Yes.
gamer7804  +   304d ago
hopefully they've make a lot of progress since the playstation4 alpha, it was just "ok"
shinrock  +   304d ago
Will buy, but not pre ordering so i quess ill misss the beta. Bungie could just give us the beta considering thier treatment of xbox fans.
Immorals  +   304d ago
Preorder on Amazon, wait for the code and cancel the preorder :)
shinrock  +   304d ago
Thats smart. But for some reason this is the 1st bungie title that i have no real desire. And from everthing i've seen, i just don't see anything that great. Good design,solid graphics, but the gameplay looks repetitive and somewhat boring.

Am I weird because I don't really care to be involved with betas?
Benchm4rk  +   304d ago
Not weird that you don't care to be involved in betas but definitely weird that you felt the need to come into an article about a beta to tell everyone you don't care for them.
Software_Lover  +   304d ago
Oh ok, thanks for the clarification!

Hyped Doom clone.
Budobear  +   304d ago
Thats an interesting and original idea I've not heard before. Other than the point of view how is it in any way similar to Doom 'the king of corridoor shooters'?
Milesprowers  +   304d ago
All FPS Games are Doom Clones and FPS Shooters are better when the Maps are small, better then wandering around for 10 Minutes looking for a someone to shoot at an incredible slow movement speed with limited slow weapons.
Neonridr  +   304d ago
Isn't Doom a Wolfenstein clone then?
Milesprowers  +   304d ago
All WW2 Shooters are Wolfenstein Clones and Call of Duty 1 was simply a skin of Return to Castle Wolfenstein but without the fun.
Budobear  +   304d ago
I'm liking your broad brush approach but do you not think there has been any diversification in the genre at all. We have a more movement than the origianl Doom.....we have the power of the full aim, which wasn't in the original and as was said before....Wolfenstein was the 1st FPS.
Milesprowers  +   303d ago
Aiming is Doom is simple, in fact Doom had no Crosshairs. Iron Sights, regen, cover system, cinematics, training, hit boxes, realistic player movement or looking up/down.

It was pure fast paced action .
Darkfist  +   304d ago
anyone know if PS3 and PS4 players can play together?
Benchm4rk  +   304d ago
I don't think they can but that would be awesome if it were possible. Same with 360 and XB1. With the install base from last gen the player counts would be huge.
etownone  +   303d ago
Idk.... I'm sure I'll get this game.

But the new COD, Far Cry, and Halo Collection are on my top list this holiday season.

Maybe even Forza Horizon 2.
LAWSON72  +   303d ago
This comes out in early Sept I would not call that the holidays
etownone  +   303d ago
Yeah.. That's considered holiday season to me at least.

Idk... I'll wait for the reviews and then make my decision based off that
mantis_toboggan_phd  +   303d ago
Late for the show, but ready to go!
sikadelic_mu53  +   302d ago
I can't to try it out.
