COD: World at War beta to be Xbox 360 and PC only

Sorry PS3 gamers, but according to Treyarch and the people at Activision, the upcoming online multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: World at War will be for Xbox 360 and PC owners only.

For those of you who remember, Infinity Ward pulled a similar move last year by hosting the Call of Duty 4 beta only on the Xbox 360. After speaking with a Activision representative, I was told that the reasoning behind doing an Xbox 360 and PC beta was primarily due to increased server and connectivity data.

The story is too old to be commented.

ouch, that hurts for ps3 gamers who were looking forward to get into beta. I can't even get into lbp or socom or resistance or home or killzone2 beta so doesn't matter to me. And, I am not even looking to buy this game. I have 360 too but no live.

They already confirmed this is for PC/360.

second. who cares. between socom beta, littlebigplanet beta, resistance 2 beta, and home beta, who has the time?

resistance 2 and gears of war 2 will be 10 times better than this WW2 game!! as if the market not full of them!! i think there is around 50 games about WW2!! its enough we need something that involves different time that that time because that time 1940's was milked out to the last single drop!!

resistance 2 FTW

No need to get defensive fanboys, nobody cares about this game (or its beta) anyway!

When I talked to the Activision PR I got the worst excuse to as why the game was only having a beta on the Xbox 360 and PC. Basically he said that it was better for everyone to do the Xbox 360 beta and that they really only do it for server and connectivity data.

He also brought up the fact that most betas on the PS3 are first party. That Sony needs to change their mind on how they run things.

Resistance 2 will the be the true next gen FPS this year.With the maximun use of the Cell and Blu-Ray,the Xbox 360 will fail to challenge the PS3 with multiplatform games which run on the PS3 better anyway

Jpinter3361d ago

Agreed. I've had hands on time with both games and I'd say Resistance 2 is the better buy. However....Call of Duty World at War was a great game. It's like COD4 1.5. It ups the graphics, adds new features and perks, etc.

If you have enough money this holiday season for two fps titles, I'd recommend this as the second one to pick up.

Lord Shuhei Yoshida3361d ago

I agree.Resistance 2 will be the number one shooter.The 360 will get the sloppy seconds like always

XD

Irishrocket693361d ago

L4D owns R2 hands down, and why do POS3 owners care? well isn't COD4 the number 2 in most played games on PSN? Don't worry you can make a casual gamer level of the beta on LSP, and praise yourselves for making something cute! Looooosssseeeerrrrrrsssss.

Sorry PS3 gamers, but according to Treyarch and the people at Activision, the upcoming online multiplayer beta for Call of Duty: World at War will be for Xbox 360 and PC owners only.

OUCH!!! WTF? Man, I hate having to wait for good games and now this...But, but, but, I still have R2 and some good movies. Damn how I hate what Sony is doing to me.

scottmichael3361d ago

which multiplatform games are better on the ps3? lol

Bon Scott3361d ago

how many people I have turned on to the 360,and led away from buying a PS3.
I love it!
And news like this solidifies why I do it.

I love coming to this disgusting little Sony site and watching all the little droids squirm with their FUD and anti Microsoft agendas.

NO COD BETA FOR YOU LOSERS!

Suck it droids.

Resistance 2 is gonna FLOPFLOPFLOP like my nuts in yer mouths.
