MusterBuster, the well-known SCEE community manager recently teased that a “HUGE” announcement was looming. Now, only a short while after that tease, the huge announcement has been, well, announced…
. You're actually right. XD Nice.
I'm always right ;)
you were wrong about how bad you are in bed hehehehe
Don't get me wrong Sony, but there is nothing huge about it, just a local event to play games.
@honest_gamer you are right, I am much better in bed than I originally had said ;) I lied when I said I was bad in bed. Lower their expectations and so you can blow them away when it happens B)
“Calling all PlayStation faithfuls, we’re inviting you to come and prove yourself on games before they’re released, battle it out with the best of the best, win prizes, and speak face to face with your gaming heroes. While other people can only talk about future games, you can be launching yourself into them for real at our first ever PlayStation BETA event in Birmingham.” “So what kind of crumbling apocalyptic cities can you race through and what kind of power struggles can you get caught up in? For a taster of what’s about to be unleashed on the market, you can sample all of these at the event: The Fight Move Edition, Kung Fu Rider, Sports Champions, Killzone 3 Dualshock, Motorstorm Apocolypse, GT5, Dead Nation, Eat Them, Heavy Rain Move Edition.” “We’ll even stage a Motorstorm Apocolypse tournament. The prize? The champion of each session not only escapes a natural catastrophe but also wins a Sony 3DTV. And if you can’t dodge enough flying concrete to claim a prize, don’t curl up in shame as there are limited edition take homes for everyone. And there’s free food and drink throughout, to fuel your shooting/racing/zombie addiction.” “So if you want to thrust yourself into games no one else can get their hands on at the BETA event in Birmingham’s Custard Factory, sign up now”" Freaking HUGE, a Total Win for Gamers there...
for them probably come here hopefully sooner than later
"I lied when I said I was bad in bed. Lower their expectations and so you can _blow them_ away when it happens B) " I see what you did there (?) ;-D
It would be pretty sick if they put this on PLAYSTATION Home. Example, you have a Home account and they invite you (one of the users)to test out the beta on Home. I can hope and dream.
this is excellent!!!!!!!
sony really care about there fans.
lucky guys :(
migrate to UK then if you want in!
no don't, we want to keep people out.
no one likes 12 year old british kids.
Too soon for a Michael Jackson joke maybe?
This calls for a Road Trip!!
Sony America you're slackin
In the words of our beloved Kevin Butler... COME ON™.
Speaking of KB... been a long time since we've seen a new KB commercial/video.
And we don't have vidzone yet either, but things could be worse.....we could be in australia where everything gets banned and delayed.
Yeah we get nothing down here, but it's always nice hearing all the Sony love going around. They'll remember us one day :-). Aus/Nz always get dudded but we did get demons souls : black phantom edition.
Oh yeah man! It would totally suck to be in Australia! Girls are freakin' hot though but with an accent I can hardly understand!
more expensive of about everything too! games retail from AU$79.90 and at EBGames, the lowest was AU$99.90! I bought my 60GB PS3 there for $978 but got lucky with 2nd SIXAXIS and 2 games bundled! still not saying that it's NOT not cheap! @zeeshan - u should improve your english there buddy! :P
dnt get it
How do you not get it? The name is even self explanatory. "Playstation Beta Rooms". It's a room for Playstation Betas. God......... -facepalm-
Thank God for Sony; Thank God for Kutaragi San; Thank God for the Playstation Entertainment System.
First Time I saw that picture i thought it was going to be in playsation home for PS+ members like myself and was excited as it would give me a reason to actually use playstation home but then read down to see it was in Birmingham and for me it was a huge anticlimax :(
ohhhhhhh koool i get it, didnt read lol
suppose u gta be 18 n over :(
wow,thats not really that huge.
Agreed, it's not as big as I had hoped, but that's not going to stop me from trying to go. Sounds like a fun day
I live not far from Birmingham and I'm not really that excited for this. Oh and American brothers, I'm pretty sure I heard Sony are having something like this at Comic-con.
How was this a big, big, big announcement? 99.99% of all PS3 gamers in the UK will never be able to go to this. I mean I could see if their was a Beta room on PS home were everyone with a UK PSN id could go to that and try out all the betas. Never fall for hype. Even though their was barely any hype to begin with.
for people in Birmingham....
bit far really it at least a 2 hour train journey that i cant be bothered with. shame if it was in the north west area i would go for sure
Wow this is cool. UK only?
He should have said "BETA.BETA,BETA". but it's nice for UK gamers.
exactly ..it's nice not huge i'm not from Uk so i can't enjoy it .i'm pretty sure the compettion will be fierce to win that Tv
What game is that on the TVs in the promotional shot?
Good question/observation. I've got no clue. First thing that comes to mind is the new Team Ico game. But it's probably just a stock image or something.
i am off on holiday on the 1st, oh well have fun ps3 fans who go
Why only in UK?
Should hold a BETA event like this for the US and maybe make it a 3 day event like Fri-Sun I would defiantly go up to 500 Miles from NY State to take part.
This is easily the stupidest way they could have went about this. Announcing it 11 days before, extremely short notice for anyone who lives more than 10 minutes away, and giving the places on a first come first serve basis... I don't mean to be rude, but that's bordering retarded! The only people that will get to go are people who live in Burmingham... I live in Scotland, and REALLY want to go, but it'd cost a lot to get there and it'd be a lot of hassle sorting it out. I don't even have time to ask any friends if they think it'd be a plausible idea (I don't drive yet), cause by the time I did there'd be no spaces. Poor show SCEE... poor show...
I guess he was thinking about erections while tweeting...
Thats what should occur, get rid of HOME and just have beta's. You click the home(beta)icon and can d/l and play whatever is listed for a limited time.
why aren't the people who bought PS+ apart of this Beta Room over the PSN? this is not great news for me. i live in the USA. i bought PS+ for betas. Now where is my wcvk betas access over PSN? WTF!!! this news would have been better to involve all PS+ into this beta rooms over the PSN.
You obviously don't understand what this is. It's a physical showing, which will last for probably a couple hours, what you want them to setup some kinda onlive facility for you to play these games over PSN?
Sounds like a nice little way to play some games early, and potentially win a 3DTV. I almost wish i lived in the UK.
SCEE still exists?! Lolz WTF..
wow I sent these guys an instant email hope all the places have not been taken yet.
something tells me the average gamer doesn't know what a real beta is. this event is nothing more than a glorified demo for the attendees. do they get to submit bug reports? give suggestions for UI, gameplay and graphics? the same thing happend with the so called blur "beta", nothing more than a demo that needed a download code to play
This sounds like a cool event, but it's hardly "huge" for playstation gamers in general. In fact it's kind of a slap in the face to those who already went with PS+ in hopes of beta access, not to mention those who bought into Quore for the same reason. I'm a PS3 only gamer, and I have no regrets on that front, but I have to shake my head at many of Sony's decisions regarding the marketing of what really is the best console available.
