Ripten.com reports that fans who were unable to access charlieoscardelta.com today at noon to sign up for a token will get another shot at the beta.
Then great job on behalf of the beta staff. I'm sure thousands of people were pissed not even being able to load the site (like myself) let alone apply for the beta. Checked the site right now and it seems to be back up but in maint mode, so we will see how it works out.
it is true and this is exactly what they should be doing for the fans of this franchise..no more jumping through hoops...of course you have to wait for the site to get back up first.
Glad to hear they're doing something about it. Still going to be hard to get a token though.
Will the whole damn mess just start all over again when the website goes live? Does EVERYONE who logs in in the next 24 hours get in FOR SURE, do you still have to answer 3 trivia questions? And what if you can't get into the site in the next 24 hours? I remember how people complained about haveing to buy Crackdown to get into the Halo 3 beta, but Crackdown is an awesome game I would have bought anyway. They should have made it so if you pre-ordered COD 4 you got a token, or something like that...
I totally agree man, this is nothing more than a method to drum up hype and anticipation for the game -- unfortunately, like a well cooked grenade it is blowing up in their face.
He says they'll give out whatever is available. Regardless, they're doing the right thing changing it to open registration vs first come first serve.
This is awesome news for me. I wanted to get in, but I had my first day of school today, so there was no way for me to try and register at noon. So :-)
im still pissed about earlier today
we ALL are -- and that includes them.
Oh, well I have been playing since friday last week. LOL
yea you are about as welcome on this thread as a fly is in a bowl of soup.
Same exact thing happened with HALO 3, almost. Well basically. I don't know. Activition better be smart.
I'm glad I got in the beta in the first wave.
cross-platform play between all 3 platforms...
ps3 vs. xbox360 vs. PC gamers....imagine what that would be like, imagine all the gamers u can play!! but sadly thats never gonna happen..
Not true...it is possible, now whether or not it happens who knows, but Unreal Tournament on the PS3 is supposed to be compatible with the PC.
yea but i doubt MS and Sony would agree to that, and infinity ward already confirmed that they have no plans for console vs PC play in the game informer magazine
Anybody know what they where?
Could be the trivia questions from the site, I had all those written down just in case they were the same ones.
Or not, the site still is't working. I got some Bioshock to play, can't sit at the darn computer all day...
Good luck getting into the beta guys... i have friends that are trying to get in aswell. I got into the first wave and i tell you... its definatly worth it. best FPS in a long time seriously
I was completely pissed off today...
Thank you IW. This is the right thing to do...
Site is back up!
