Right after the beta starts we'll get a flood of info. Cool.

If I'm honest, I'd rather not go through being in a beta again. The TF2 one was hell.

I'd stake my left testacle that we wouldn't. There'd be a secracy agreement thing.

I would LOVE to get into it Teh Bucko i doubt the lbp beta would be the same as the tf2 one. I cant wait to see more info about this!

Yeah, I think there's an NDA.

Anyway, odds are most of the spots will be for posters on the official PS boards. :(

Or active PSN users, or maybe even the most active on their blog (aka me :D)

Resistance 2 beta isn't considering Euorpeans at the minute, atleast until the Americans are in, I think, so If I got on this it would be nice.

You're wrong :rolleyes:

I have a european freind on the Resistance 2 Beta as we speak lol.

And europeans might have a better chance this time because MM based in UK?

Hmmmmmmmmmm ... a part of me REALLY wants to be involved with the Beta ... and another part of me doesn't want to have even touched a demo until I pop that disc in my PS3 on release day ... ooooooooooooh ... the conflict.
Although I won't be chosen, so it's not actually an issue!

What I meant is the open beta... its just opening to Americans first off, and lord knows how long it will be before they open to Europe.

Hey cool. This looks like fun. Hey MM great idea to release it to the public to do a stress test on the uploading feature. It makes everyone happy, because you get to do your test, those who get in get to test it out and play it, and those who do not get to see a flood of information when it comes out due to youtube videos, bloging, and such. I want to try and create some items and contraptions and stuff and i quite a few level ideas. I want to ask you guys if i could be in the beta to help out and put stress on the system to see how far we can stretch it. I know that i will have to upload as many levels (good if i can which i think i can) as possible to the system to give it a true test and i am prepared to do so. If it an invitation beta than you may need my PSN: so here it is: RAINFIRE and yes it is all caps. So guys i hope you choose a bunch of deserving people if it is an invitation beta including myself.

Cheers!

Hate to break it to ya :p

I'm pretty sure they wont just select one forum and let everyone on that get in, for tons of reasons I can't be bothered to list lol.

Maybe if you get active on the PS Boards, show your interest in LBP other ways (competitions etc), you might have a better chance :)

They shall be the first to hand select people from LBP fansites, friends of sackboy on facebook, etc. That would be cool they could really make everyone happy if they selected everyone who takes interest in it online at various videos, forums, and such. Leave no fan dissapointed grr

bbroman
09-06-2008, 01:52 PM
I agree that that would be awesome for us, but really isn't feasible for them.

I really do hope they take notice of those on the fansites and not just on the PS boards, though. I have a feeling not too many of us will get in.

We ALL want to get in, but in the end, it's all up to MM as to who gets in:cool:

I read somewhere that MM were trying to figure out how to get in contact with the people they're inviting into the Beta, which could mean that they're handpicking them, not just going by the people on the PSBoards, otherwise they'd just use the emails that are on there.. Riiight?

Not everybody will get in lol. I'd be surprised if anyone from this site actually got in anyhow.

09-06-2008, 06:34 PM
I've been waiting for the beta for about a year. I actually want to get in, so I can help MM test, provide feedback, and be one of the few that can say, a year later, "I've been playing this game since beta, get on my level". :D

bbroman

Get on my level....you're about ten months old with that, man.

I hope I get into this, I have been waiting so long but if I don't, It's okay because I wait another month

09-07-2008, 03:18 AM
I don't really care, even if I was one of the choices to be picked, I dunno if I would go. Rather start with the entire game, then just get teased by a fragment. But w/e.

beta is the whole game... or maybe its just the online... its meant to test the game so its not a demo

The whole game is online lol :)

They'll give you the whole game, and you'll just go about as you would normally playing it. Part of the reason for the Beta Expanding is a Stress Test, which is to see if the servers can manage all of the players at once etc.

bbroman
09-07-2008, 12:24 PM
Yeah, the beta's everything, although you're supposed to focus on playing online.

DrunkMiffy
09-07-2008, 12:42 PM
Ah well, I hope MM do end up handpicking a lot of them, they'd choose the people who actually understand the game lol, not just Beta testers on the PSBoards :S

trialaccess
09-10-2008, 12:12 PM
I am not sure if we will hear anything. The couple betas I have had the honor to participate in had pretty severe NDA's. This probably wouldn't be any different. I would say there is a chance that it may have already started, for the small part anyway. I would love to be invited, but I am not even sure at this point if they are going to publish a special "Way to become a Sackboy Guide" that tells us a special thing we need to do to be part of this.

Not that I am saying not to try. I really hope you guys get the chance. :)

bbroman
09-10-2008, 12:14 PM
I don't think they'd leave us hanging this badly. I also doubt they'd start it this quietly. It's not an open beta, but it's not a closed one, either.

DrunkMiffy
09-10-2008, 02:16 PM
I think we'll have word fairly soon, if the Beta's starting IN September, they'll probably want a week or two to judge the applications (if applying is possible), so it might just start before September runs out.

Sambo110
09-10-2008, 03:02 PM
****it, if I get in I will be capped. I know I will get capped before the 25h, which is when my internet rolls over.

DrunkMiffy
09-10-2008, 03:27 PM
What's capped?

BerkleyJ
09-10-2008, 03:34 PM
Yeah, they've gotta do it soon. How much time in advance do you think they need to make revisions to the game after the beta an how long the beta will last? I think there cutting it pretty close about now. As of writing this they got 40 days to get it to the stores. it probably needs a week to go gold and another 1-2 weeks to make last minute beta revisions. So we'll say they need 3 weeks extra when the betas over. That leaves them with less than 20 days to get the beta out and let testers use it for 1-2 weeks. So yeah their running out of time. I sense a Delaystation approaching.

trialaccess
09-10-2008, 03:40 PM
If a beta does happen, then I don't think it will change anything on the Blueray, they would have all the changes in the first patch. Burnout did that, they had the demo and beta fairly late, and the changes that needed to be made were added on in an update.

I really hope that a beta does happen, but we will have to wait and see.

WE can only keep wishing they have a beta, I know I would be happy to get it.

09-10-2008, 10:31 PM
oh boy, oh boy, oh boy, i hope i get in! sounds like they will need ALOT of people to "stress test" the game... because 100 or even 500 people will not be enough fro opening night, there could be more then 20,000 people accessing the psn for sharing there stuff through the servers that are set up... so lets hope they need alot of testers and we all get in! good luck to everyone, and if not all of us can get in, lets hope at least some of us can...

Well seems like you answered your own question Maltay.
Usually beta news is given a bit earlier than a week. Plus it is a 1/3 of the month gone.

trialaccess
09-11-2008, 03:00 PM
That was my point, we would usually hear about it by now. That is the way it has worked with Betas in the past anyway. Maybe MM is making a stand :D

09-11-2008, 03:56 PM
I really didn't think i'd make the beta but I get my ps3 back next week WOOOOO. Even if I shouldn't get in I'll play cod till I die.
