take the test, instead of just trying to be the first to comment on hot stories, help out a little, approve them also.

Crackdown was far from a bad game. In fact, I'm happy that the Halo 3 beta helped it's sales. It helped expose a good game that would otherwise have gone unnoticed. Now, thanks to that we have a sequel.

Imperator I agree the game is great and the beta gave a new IP the exposure it needed. It is no different than the Uncharted 2 beta being packed in to Infamous.

I'll be buying it when it launches. I absolutely loved the first one and didn't even bother with the beta because I was too busy playing Crackdown. The sandbox game play and co-op is what had me interested.

Wish we had halo beta to get potential herp der derrrrrr! All you need is 4 player co-op, over a 15 hour story, multi-player, good level design and you're good. Don't rely on the competition dummies...just because it's on the same platform doesn't mean partners...What ever happened to developers competing with other games, instead of trying to promote them? I know they wanted to use halo to get them sales...AGAIN, but the fact of the matter is, just make your game good. That's all.

Edit: Not saying Crackdown 1 was bad, just saying.

But you know that there are plenty of games out there that are very good and don't get their dues because other games get more marketing.

So it's okay for high profile developers to help out smaller studios the way Bungie did with Realtime Studios.

Oh come on guys. Sell the game off of your own work. Not a beta, come on, you should be THANKFUL that your game sells without the Beta, this time you can really see people appreciating your work.

Obviously Sony felt the same way about inFamous, so stop trolling.
