These forums have seen pages of threads about the likely sales, the possible impact on hardware and the Gamerankings/Metacritic scores that the game will achieve. Unfortunately the beta can't answer all of those questions, but it can give you a handle on the quality of the game - which is impressive. MediaMolecule has taken the idea of play, create, share and truly run with it to make a game that's extremely inventive and brings forth a sense of community in those who play it. The experience is by no means perfect but, as anyone will tell you, that could just as easily be the fault of the game being in beta. We will have to wait and see if these issues are fixed before launch."
