i asked them for the code at twitter thats how you get the code right?

frankymv2976d ago

No, you need to be a PSN+ subscriber and be one of the first 5k to have downloaded the KZ3 theme on the 19th.

-Alpha2976d ago

*fingers crossed*

Good luck everyone!

Red_Orange_Juice2976d ago

waiting for mine :)))))))
see you lucky ones in the beta

deafwing2976d ago

the theme must have reached 5k dl's within 10 mins .. the UK had a comparable approach to getting the beta and they offered 10,000 Keys - it took less than 15 mins.

jjacinto232976d ago

Now downloading................... ..

Deputydon2976d ago

Are they sending them to EU first, then to US? I had my theme download as soon as it went up. It didn't even have a single rating yet, but I haven't got a code.

tacosRcool2975d ago

I want to play but not a plus subscriber...

I'm still waiting for SCEA to sent the codes. I hope I get it, otherwise I'll be camping on IGN.

SeanRL2975d ago

Every psn+ member should get in, just sayin.

Yet another paid beta.

suckers.

cyborg69712976d ago

I didn't pay for mine and have been playin it for about a week.

crazyclown2976d ago

cyborg6971

so why are you commenting here? lol, I love liars

deafwing2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

his point is not the beta itself
you are paying for PSN+
and it is the only way to get the beta
his reasoning is that because you are doing so
the beta is not free ...
you could say yes/no here .. it's really up to you

DirtyLary2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

I can see by my disagrees there are quite a few of you who bought your way into the beta.

It's just another example of the sad state gaming is in these days.

Paid betas
paid DLC (disc locked content)

feel free to add to the list

maxcer2976d ago

the funny thing is lots of publishers are jumping on this paid beta scam lately with preorder incentives, and access to betas after buying a full game.

raztad2976d ago

I paid a PSN+ 3 months subscription. For this and AC:Brotherhood.

I paid to gain access to an early preview of the game. I'll be reporting bugs if found any, but I want to be in for the fun.

I almost never get into any beta so I dont mind to "waste" some bucks in one of my fav franchises. People out there pay for being able to play online, at least we are talking about actual content here.

BulletProofVess2976d ago

thats like attacking xbox live users
for paying to play online or paying to access netflix a service they already pay for

& additionally plus isnt the only way to get into the beta

plenty were invited for activity on fourms and previous betas

also they have held twitter giveaways

Lifendz2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

Why do so many of you care what I do with my money? First off, the KZ3 beta was a major reason why I got Plus but it wasn't the only reason. I've been wanting to check out Plus for the longest and I now had a good reason.

Second, I hope you're not a 360 fanboy trying to poke fun at the idea of paying for a beta. MS charges a mandatory fee just to play the online portion of a game. Now which of the two is worse: an option fee to play a beta or a mandatory fee just to get in a multiplayer match? Not to mention certain apps like Netflix requiring XBL gold membership when neither the PS3 or the Wii require any additional fee other than a Netflix membership.

Heck, I know people that bought ODST just to guarantee a spot in the Reach beta. MS did the same thing with Crackdown and Halo 3. Is that different from what Sony is doing here? It's a copycat business. Attaching a highly coveted item (like a beta to a major IP) to something like a new service or IP is just smart from a business standpoint. No one has a gun to your head either way.

WildArmed2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

Yes, because PS+ only gets you into beta and nothing else.

Great logic :D

please-please-please-please!!! I'll sacrifice my first born to you Satan for a beta invite.

(Three disagrees. lol Must have been those damn Mormons or Jehovah's Witness. XD)

@Crazyclown @bustamove

crazyclown2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

UR SUCH A LOSER...

edit:
why am I retarded? lol, ur the one that fucked yourself for writing that

bustamove2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

...Not cool...seriously. :<

EDIT: That wasn't a good thing to say. You're excited and so am I and everyone else but that's not cool.

dkblackhawk502976d ago

lol nice one Longrod and for shame on everyone else for taking it so damn seriously...

ak3nji2975d ago

Hyperbole - pronounced(hye-PUR-bə-lee)
Hyperboles are exaggerations to create emphasis or effect. As a literary device, hyperbole is often used in poetry, and is frequently encountered in casual speech. An example of hyperbole is: "The bag weighed a ton".[2] Hyperbole helps to make the point that the bag was very heavy although it is not probable that it would actually weigh a ton.

"I'll sacrifice my first born to you Satan for a beta invite." not probable that he would actually do this, but he used an extreme situation, to make the point he wants a beta invite!

*nb Longrod used a capital for Satan, which surprised me, not many people use capital letters for names anymore! =P*

zeddy2976d ago

well i aint been sent shit. every psn+ subscriber should get one.

maxcer2976d ago

this is true, as i imagine the test will mostly be to stress the servers. but i would worry too much im sure they will add a few thousand people after the first week or so.

jjank112975d ago

yea, I have the same sentiments but also believe they will have an open public beta soon (OR at least I really hope so). I'm pretty sure i'm not going to get an invite since I was busy the whole night and could only d/l the theme in the morning.

zeddy2975d ago

got one in the end, downloading now quite small actually only 1360 mb.

stevenhiggster2975d ago (Edited 2975d ago )

I didn't get one :-(
I knew I was too late, I totally forgot it was Wednesday that day! Gutted. It wasn't till about 9.30 at night that I thought Oh S**T it's wednesday F**K! And then ran to my PS3, alas I was too late, hey I still got the theme though, yay.

I want a code so hard u_u...

Marceles2976d ago (Edited 2976d ago )

I actually got my code last week on the 19th and didn't have to do anything, I have Plus but didn't even download the theme. I'm in the US btw

http://i54.tinypic.com/23rw...

jjank112975d ago

how did you get that?? You have some other connection or is it random? Thats alittle confusing.

Marceles2975d ago

I really don't know, I get in most of the betas. I'm in G.A.P, I register all my games....that's about it

BaSeBaLlKiD7212975d ago

Yup, same here. I got mine on the 19th and I did download the theme. It probably was just some random selection. Hopefully I will get another code for downloading the theme as well lol

MiloGarret2975d ago (Edited 2975d ago )
