A few days ago we posted about an upcoming Killzone 3 beta and a few hoops you had to jump through to me in with a chance of getting in the limited beta. One of those...
Came up abit late for me but i think i was like 1,103 hope i get in pumped for this oh and the theme come on sony i wanted a dynamic or atleast with a cool picture of some kind of helghast the ISA were never cool lol
damnit its for plus only, fuck !
unlucky but on a level if your not interested in plus fair do's if you are but are waiting for something special give up and sign in i've made over £100 worth of content already and thats not including discounts sony has made me a happy bunny and the thing is i am a core gamer your not a core gamer if you wont play wipeout cause its old i still play 007 on n64 hardcore wants a splash at everything and will give any game a try and try to enjoy it for example hip hop gamer is a hardcore gamer abit of a fanboy and not the best journalist but he is open to loads of games and enjoys them for what they are no matter age or genre its the same with me @dead eye i've had it since day one im just saying 100 cause i don't know the full price but its saved me more then that for sure
@ dangert12 God knows how much I've saved with ps+. had it since day one. Think the fallout 3 dlc has pushed me over £200
Excellent, my game-sharin buddy was playin BC2 b4 it went up and i was like "MOFO? its 7.59 get on it", "what u talkin about bruv?" he said "IM ON ABOUT THE BLOODY K3-BETA, REMEMBER!!!!", "oh, i remeber, ill get on it now mate" 2 minutes pasted "its not there mate", "KEEP TRYIN", then, 30 seconds later "GOT IT, can i go back 2 playin BC2 now?", "yes mofo, u can"
LOL you thought a beta is free? Paid betas are all the rage now.
i was bang on 20.00 i should most definitely get one!
but if 10000 other people got it bang on 20:00 maybe you'll have been a few milliseconds late :O
It is not up anymore. Does that mean I can't get the theme? What gives? Anyone know? Is this UK only?
Yes its UK only NA gets theres next weel
if you don't have a UK account, with PlayStation Plus, then you can't get this ... I know it's gonna be a mad dash next week on the US end
it not UK only. It's Europe.... BIG difference.
i already have the beta!
lol disagree all you like.... i have it! cant say much because of the nda but it's a large beta, in alpha stage.
I was the first, no doubt about it @ 21.00 my time http://forums.n4g.com/tm.as... :-) EDIT Jugf*ck ima laugh when you won't be with the first 5k instead of the 10k that EU got hehe
MART I will laugh if you don't get in. hahah what a n00b
I think it is great how you have joined the dark side.
is this just for Europe? i read somewhere that it wasn't supposed to be released here in the US till the 19th, but that they where releasing the theme in Europe on the 13th.
the theme is released on the 15th over here...we wont know if we got in until the 25th
We will get ours (NA) on the 19th this is for EU only
I got it bang on time, even 1 of the first 30 to rate it so I've gotta get in.
same here...i think i rated it at 130.
I forgot to rate it lol
Big enough for you to comment lol
it was at 700 ratings when i got it so got my fingers crossed :)
lol 701 really i forgot to rate it
Didn't update on store in Ireland till 20:04 hope I get in
I downloaded bang on 8pm, got in there, wasn't there, backed out and it was. Downloaded, doesn't look like the one in the forum? Looked like someone got Melee'd on mine!
rotating back ground
it was, i synced the clock via internet, waiting till the second the clock turned 8, went into store and had it downloading within 10 sec. pretty sure i got in.
It's pathetic how some people pay for plus to gain access to betas like this one, yet they are tricked like this.
Well why not? for some people a early access to a hotly anticipated title is worth £12. And they will get all the next 3 months of free stuff too. Why judge people for something so small its up to them how much they value a beta.
entering the store at exactly 8 PM is kind of a mini-game itself...
buy crackdown get acess to halo beta
gamers these days dont know how good they got it
Paying your way JUST for this beta just to show it off and not contribute anything is not what this should be about. Betas are for constructive means and whilst it is cool to get a sneak peek it should be about providing GG with some feedback
Then I'm going to annoy you too because I have very little interest in purchasing KZ3 but hopped online at 8pm to try and get the beta as I could do with a freebie to pass the time until GT5 arrives ;)
@above: I meant people who are paying for Plus should get into the beta instantly and not be tricked with the theme downloading stuff...
You make your point, and it's a valid one.
Its not trickerey, they clearly outlined the methods of getting into the beta.. It's a win-win the hardcore killzone fans get a chance to get into the beta without having to rely on luck of the draw and it in turn helps drive up subscriptions of ps+ why do you have to be so negative about such an awesome event???
It's not negativity. Only that if I payed 50$ for plus I would expect to get into the beta directly and without having to mess around with such things...
Well did you ever stop to think that they dont have enough room for all of the plus subscribers?? Beta's are tests to see how the servers perform and if the game has any bugs so they aren't going to innundate the servers just because you feel "entitled" to the beta.... I've already in the assassins creed beta and have a whole slew of content so the kz3 beta is just icing...
Sorry but the guy is right, 'disagree' all you want. Many are literally paying to BETA TEST software. You have companies dedicated to outsourced testing which software developers pay large sums for. Instead your giving them money to test their software. More and more companies are capitalising on the impatience of gamers.
There are two ways of looking at this, if you have just signed up and paid for this beta without any inclination to use the other services then yes I agree with your above statement. BUT I signed up for the PS plus, among many other things, including betas. I am paying to have the exclusivity of not just betas, but earlier access to demos, free content etc.
Got mine on the strike of 8pm, was a beta tester last time so looking forward to this one. Do hope folks will provide GG with some feedback every bit helps, I know I will.
Won't be giving them any feedback without a being paid for my services, downloading it purely for something new to play.
I better get in there was 0 ratings when i downloaded it & then only 1 rating when i rated it lol
At first, it wasn't on the store. I went to another section, came back to the PS+ section and downloaded it afap.
Got it at 8, do you have to rate it ?
Yes, otherwise a representative from GG will come to your house and spit at your door, after shooting your ps3.
No don't think you do how can you rate something you have not tried?
I think he was referring to the theme...
Guess our European friends are dwnloading now. I just checked US store, nada. Next week 19th still folks. Patience.
damn i didnt count what rating it was on :s but i downloaded it around 8pm. its on 2432 ratings right nw. hopefully i have got in. the wait for the 25th will be a long one :s
I guess it is full cause it aint even up anymore maybe this is uk only cause so the first 5k there
It's still up in the UK.
I've been invited to this beta, second day playing now. I do not have ps plus. I have never subsribed to it. I'm also in the little big planet two beta, and the new home beta. In fact I've been in pretty much every beta going including resistance two, the pre release mag beta and kill zone two beta. You don't need to be a plus member to get invited.
Got the theme at 8.00 too, forgot to rate till now(2385).
Chuck Biscuits. Greatest drummer eva!
I downloaded at 6.40am Aus time, I forgot to rate it though, I would say 10,000 people would have already downloaded. Do you have to rate it to get the beta??
Thank GOD this is only for EU. The U.S. PSN seems to be suffering though. It's taking me forever just to sign in. Oh well, I'll be ready for the 19th!
Kinda funny how people think they are automatically a number on the list because of ratings. Youre assuming that everyone rates. You better keep your fingers crossed.
yup... 10000 downloads is nothing... 2500 people rated it in Norway alone withing two minutes past 8pm....
