Capcom offers its sincerest apologies to everyone who participated in this first beta test.
Well can you imagine if this happened closer to release? It would be a massive failure. Its a beta and it happened early so that's good. I gave 343 a lot of flack over their beta mind you and they acknowledged their shortcomings with some bits of Halo 5. Now with this, there's no way Capcom can ignore the issue. Plus, more betas should result in more refinement. If the final product is shoddy after this however, then its time to blame Sony and Capcom. Right now its extremely premature. Frustrating but a not a massive issue.
wise decision, i hope i can pull up a fight next time. i start the beta everytime and i cant even make it to the main screen
I know man i just had vent a little bit. It sucks too because the 1st day it work then thinking everything was cool i turn off the ps4 and went to bed. Next day it just stop working.soon metal gear will take away the pain(pain!)MGS3
"Additionally, we are working on a worthwhile in-game incentive for the players that participated in the first beta test. While we can’t confirm specifics just yet, we will have more details on this in the coming weeks." I wasn't even able to log in once since I downloaded the beta. Yesterday the game would just boot me back into the PS4 dashboard after it tried contacting the server. I guess I missed out on this in game item.
Actually, this is great news. By making this beta not count, there are still 3 more betas to come. This game will be rock solid when it launches.
lol, its not great news at all in anyway, I couldnt get in as I live in Europe. But I am still happy I can take part in the beta in the future and Id rather they get time to prepare their servers than just run out this beta because they want too The full game is still a bit away, so I am patient enough for this beta
I don't know about great, but far too many people don't understand that every bit of data taken from a beta is a good thing, connectivity issues included.
Well, it's not great news lol, that would be if the beta worked. But it's acceptable news, it did it's job in letting Capcom know they needed to really work on the servers.
people should be happy that this problem came up now instead at launch.....
this problem will be at launch as well. look at Driveclub that was suppose to be a PS4 launch game then it got delayed a whole year and online still managed to be broken. but carry on being gullible.
Driveclub got delayed because of quality issues and social features a beta 8 months prior to launch probably could have helped them out
Yes, because this and DRIVECLUB are in the same boat.... -_- At least TRY to make some sense, here. OT: That's the exact purpose of a beta. Good thing they're dealing with now, long before release!
People should be happy that its current build, which they thought was fit for a test, is nearly unplayable?
Offline gaming FTW
Jesus this has been one huge epic fail lol.
this whole gen has been a massive fail. kind of funny these pos companies were pushing for a always online and download only this gen.
This is rediculous!! Had the beta d/L and never even able to log onto to the server to play a single game. How about just give us an offline demo with a couple characters to start with in the meantime, Capcom.
Thank goodness for $5 reservations.
You mean thank goodness for free pre orders. Where I'm from in the U.K. Pre ordering on Game or Amazon doesn't charge you until the game launches more than enough time to cancel if you don't like the beta. I've pre ordered black ops 3 for that very purpose to play the beta. I won't be getting the game at launch cause Halo 5 and Fallout 4 is gonna consume me all winter. And they already sent me my blacks ops 3 beta code so I'm ready to test it in Aug.
Psns fault imo.
I blame nintendo network
No it's clearly EA Origins fault
typical capcom no wonder they are doomed as a publisher
At least this was all in the beta and not the actual game on release. Capcom should be praised for this. How about in the meantime though they give us Alex, Urien and GUILE!
I preordered this game just to get the promised early access. This stinks. I could have saved that 60 dollar preorder for something else. Uff
Is there a reason you can't cancel your preorder?
So what you are telling me is that the Beta worked?!
