That means that starting on December 4th you can register for the opportunity to be a part of the Beta. That means that you have from the 4th till an unknown date and time to sign up before they randomly select however many people they want. Usually they have a survey to fill out so that they can choose a varied base of users.

Once again people from Europe are completely disregarded. This has become far too common. We are the last to recieve electronics and games( The majority of the time), We don't get a video market place, We are charged more for Live, We're charged more for games. Etc.

blame your Queen and Parliament. They are the ones that drive up the cost of everything. I remember when Ubisoft was running the Everquest servers over there, there was a 4 pound a month V.A.T. charge added to the price, and UK players blamed SOE for it. I have shopped in England, so I have experienced the price differences for various goods myself. You're being taxed to death over there.

Oops. Sorry, I don't know if you are in the UK or not, just using that as an example. Other European countries have equally confiscatory taxation schemes in place, though.

Yeah, I am from the UK. And just to clarify, the Queen has almost no power anymore. It's all Parliament and Prime Minister.

I wasn't necessarily blaming Microsoft. (well, I was with the whole 'Live' thing.)

I don't understand the £4 V.A.T because V.A.T is 17.5% of the the original price added onto it. So that would've been quite a bit per month.

I wish things would change though, it's a tad depressing when things like this happen.

That's lame, why doesn't everyone get to try it out that's not fair, I'm from the U.S but still not fair

I wish it was just over XBL, cause now I may not get to play it.
