I'm glad they gave an answer on what happens when your PSPlus subscription runs out. I was worried I'd only have a few short days with the beta.

Am i the only one who didnt get the beta code?

GUYwhoPLAYSvideoGAME3438d ago

you're actually probably the only one who didn't realize that you can get ps+ for free if you click on welcome back on psn store, And that if you go into the ps+ section, that the beta is right there waiting for you to download.

FAGOL3438d ago

What code? You can just download it from the PS Plus section of the store.

Iroquois_Pliskin3438d ago

oh my bad guys, i thought the beta was ''private''

Elwenil3438d ago

It is private, but lucky for you Sony gave everyone a free trial of Plus so pretty much everyone can get in on it because of that.

"A lot of people hitting our servers is precisely what one of the things we’re looking forward to as part of this Beta. We believe we’ve got a setup that will handle a huge amount of traffic, but I know we definitely want to test server load."

They underestimated

saladthieves3439d ago

Agreed. I've been trying for the last hour trying to get inside a match, but I'm stuck at the start screen with the error "Error initializing session manager"

This is really getting old. At this point, I don't even expect betas to even work at launch anymore. It happened with SOCOM 4, KZ3, etc.

keep trying, i had to sit for like 5 mins to get past the initilization error, but i got in, now im just sitting watching "finding player..." message lol

btw @midnytrain its a beta, its not supposed to work perfectly, thats what youre there for. the people trying to get on are helping ND test to make sure it works on launch day

Now my PS3 is frozen...for the 5th time now! I've gotten into about 2 games so far and the frame rate went from okay to unplayable, like 2 FPS. Anyone else having this issue with quite a lot of LAG on the screen? IT just froze on my 2nd game. Time to reboot.

saladthieves3438d ago

I have come to the simple conclusion that this is a beta, and shit and problems are bound to happen in betas. At least we should thank them for releasing a beta so that they can spot these messy problems in the first place and fix them before releases.

Activision and Call of Duty should learn from this and make public betas. Had they done the same for Black Ops, the game wouldn't be as broken as it was at launch or as right now even.

What about the shotty hit detection and jaggies?

KeiserSosay47883439d ago

they are both realistic concerns, imo...I'm definitely not trolling...

XabiDaChosenOne3439d ago

You do know the beta is only a gig and a half right? Things had to be compressed.

LoaMcLoa3439d ago

Splitscreen-online? Aww heck yes!

gameguidedog3439d ago (Edited 3439d ago )

Well of course that's why it's called Beta. Pretty cool tho to have multi in uncharted specially with the new engine used for 3. Landscapes still remind me of Gears tho.
