It won't be ready until Sony gives the go-ahead. Even then, I'd suggest waiting a bit because the servers are going to get hammered. Remember, Sony never learns when it comes to optimizing their servers for things like this.

If I was a betting man, I'd wager that the beta will be available around 6:30PM CST tonight (Thursday) when they usually update the playstation store for the week.

Could be even later... my in-store EB voucher says that the beta doesn't start until 11:00PM PST. Hopefully it will be earlier than that, but I'm prepared for a late night.

If its anything like killzone, UC2, mag, R2, etc. then the beta will be available for download before the servers open (at 11pm PST like you say)

Argh, 4:30 on the East coast and my File Planet key still doesn't work. I'm getting antsy, was hoping to get a few rounds in before work. Guess not.

Well based upon the opening menu it sure seems like they amped up the low frequency sound effects up even MORE

Just entered the code about an hour ago and it worked. Now I have to wait a few more hours to play it. Wife is on the "big TV". Man I gotta get another PS3 for my man cave lol. Guess I'll play a little Forza till she's finished. Can't find my bluetooth though, but right now I guess it wouldn't matter much unless I can find one of my 5 friends online with the PS3. Anyone want to help me grow my PS3 list? By the way what is the limit on the PS3? I already got 100 on the 360 is it the same number or more?

Supposedly all the Fileplanet codes are the same so if anyone wants in on the beta just redeem this code in the Playstation store and you should get in:

8APL-23BH-436F

Apologies if I've received some misinformation and this is a lie. However if it's not have fun

Mine was different as well. It's possible they are recycling some once they have been used, though.

Alright, my bad. I've heard people saying they've been getting the same code as their friends so I assumed they were all the same.

Anyway, can anyone get into a match? I just keep getting "No games were found". There's clearly people online if you look at the leaderboards but matchmaking isn't being cooperative.

Scratch my former inquiry. US servers aren't up yet. You can download the Beta but you're not gonna be able to play it yet. I guess it's something on Sony's end. Hoping they get this rolling tonight, I'm gonna have zero time to play in the next two days.

I think the people on the leaderboards are from Europe. Their servers went live earlier in the day. If you look at the ticker on the title screen, there's a message saying that Dice is still working on the environment. Also, we still have to download a patch before starting. My in-store EB voucher says that the beta will begin at 11:00PM PST, but Dice's twitter page will let us know when things are set to go.

Edit: I guess things are a go. See you guys online.
