EA: Medal Of Honor Multiplayer Beta Makes Sense

EA is stirring up interest for Battlefield: Bad Company 2 by holding PC and PS3 betas. It's possible that they may take a similar approach with the upcoming Medal of Honor reboot.

It makes sense for EVERY online multiplayer game to do so.

Unless of course you are a moron named Cliffy B at Epic Games who likes to put out Gears of War 2 with more bigger, better, and more bad ass glitches then ever before! Who needs betas and dedicated servers right Cliff? As long as you got money to buy those obnoxious Baby Gap T-shirts, nothing else matters? Chump should go spend some money on getting that crooked smile fixed instead of his fetish for under sized t-shirts.

/end rant

Oh yeah and MW2 really did suffer without a beta let's be honest. Too much BS. The most glitchy COD game for sure. :/

badz1493219d ago

every game with multiplayers should have beta! be it a close beta or open beta, beta is needed period! IW and AV are douchebags! may CoD fall to mediocrity forever like Tony Hawk series!

bacon133219d ago

It would be very silly for EA not to let loose with a public beta. I can only imagine how much bad word of mouth and frustration IW would have saved themselves with a MW2 public beta.

EvilCackle3219d ago

COD games can get away with no beta because it's a known quantity. People need to be persuaded to buy this new MOH.

BattleAxe3219d ago

With CoD, people know what they're going to get. But as good as this new MoH looks from the trailer, nobody knows whats in store, so a public beta would be a great move.

GamerSciz3219d ago

EA is doing a closed beta for PS3 and PC but a full blown SP demo before the game comes out. It's hard to say but betas are simply there to test out the servers and the game for any glitches/bugs. I am excited to see what this new MOH will bring to the table. From the teaser we got and them claiming it's in-game it could be one of the best war games (graphically) we have seen yet.

bjornbear3219d ago

with people playing it.

Demo's are to persuade people into buying the game, don't confuse the two.

Baka-akaB3219d ago

mmm let's still be honest here . The public beta is as much about free bug hunters than it is advertising .

It's obvious they are trying to make a bigger name for battlefield and medal by doing everything people complained UW didnt ..
And by giving as many people as possible a taste of a better game (if they succeed).

Lets not forget about the 360 this time, ok

RememberThe3573219d ago

If DICE doesn't need the extra network testing for the 360 then why would they put out a beta?

JeffGUNZ3219d ago

To attempt getting MW2 lovers into their game. I am telling you, less than 1% will leave MW2 for MoH without a multilpayer beta.

Dice excluded the 360 for the BFBC2 beta because they said it was fair because the 360 had the beta the first time. WTF is this article about? lol It doesn't even make sense, what was the quote in response to or directed at? The Bad Company 2 development process and success is in the past?

we won3219d ago (Edited 3219d ago )


LOL at this article trying to link favorable theories to what was said. BF2 isn't out so how is that something that worked in the past?

" GZ: Can we expect any kind of multiplayer beta like we've seen with Battlefield?

GG: We've not decided on any specifics yet. But it would certainly make sense for us to repeat the things that have worked in the past."

How in the Fuc did this person link What platforms other beta's were on with what was actually said?

free2game3653219d ago

Man these blogs are such a joke, did they actually call Bad Company 2 "BF2" :|

RockmanII73219d ago

Did I seriously get 9 disagrees for wanting a beta? Wow, just wow.

SixZeroFour3219d ago

ps3 didnt get the original bfbc beta? hmm didnt know that

i still would have liked to get in on the bfbc2 beta tho...shouldnt be taking turns with each iteration...if its a multiplat game and has a beta, it should be on every plat it will be released on imo
