Must not be that hard to hold out on Bad Company 2 seeing as you're willing to purchase Disney/Pixar games.

UNO doesn't really hold our interest that long (as shown by the fact when you got booted from our last game we all pretty much signed off) and I wouldn't want you to purchase Press Your Luck, it'll end up being a waste of money much like all the other PSN games have been thus far.

No, you didn't. Had cruzeBOB not been on, you would have kept playing your crappy game. True Story!

OT: Look, let it go. It's not going to happen. I bought Disney Pixar because I 1) have a 3 y/o that is absolutely infatuated with Disney Pixar and 2) am looking for games that have little to no MP component to not have the addictive drive to stay up to late (and acn be put down easy in a pinch if the baby needs me). So yes, I could go out and buy BC2, but then I would just be playing SP and you would feel gypped.

True enough...now if only Plus gave a break on that game. lol. I might pick it up for me one night if really bored or cheap, and I'll of course put it on the share account if I do.

I don't think you'd be able to buy BC2 and only play the SP. I think the MP would be too much for you to not give it a whirl. And then, once you do, you'll be hooked on it much like we were hooked on BF:BC, BF:1943 and KZ2.

Beta access was one of the non-$$$ related perks of this service I was looking forward to enjoying (along with auto dloads), and a great title to try out early is finally here.

Killzone 3 beta access will be allowed this month for 15,000 U.S. and EU PS+ members:
Quote:



Killzone 3 Beta Starts on October 25th: Here’s Your Chance to Get In!

Yes, the Killzone 3 Public Beta Trial really is coming! Just like its predecessor, the multiplayer mode for Killzone 3 will be put through rigorous testing at the hands of the toughest, most demanding critics in existence: you, the fans. The Trial starts on October 25th and access is limited, so please read the following instructions carefully if you want to know how to secure a spot in the Public Beta:

~~~
* With the exception of a handful of key media partners and selected PAX feedback participants, access to the Killzone 3 Public Beta Trial is limited to PlayStation Plus subscribers. If you’re not enjoying the many benefits of Plus membership yet, now’s the time to sign up!

* On October 19th, an exclusive Killzone 3 XMB Theme will appear in the Plus section of the PlayStation Store. The first 15,000 Plus subscribers to download this theme (5,000 SCEA Plus subscribers and 10,000 SCEE Plus subscribers) will receive access to the Public Beta Trial.

* After you’ve downloaded the Killzone 3 XMB Theme, you will receive an email on Oct. 25th containing the Public Beta Trial promotion code and further instructions through the address you registered as your PSN Sign-In ID. Make sure you’ve set your notification preferences to accept emails from SCE, or we won’t be able to contact you.
~~~

Those of you who make it into the Public Beta Trial are expected to provide honest gameplay feedback, report bugs and glitches, and help test our network code in real-world scenarios. In short, we’re counting on you to help us improve Killzone 3! In return you’ll get a good taste of the multiplayer mode, including its brand-new Operations game type, party system, and jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles.

They'd better have Move support in the beta!

I'm excited about this and will try to download the theme as quickly as possible...but it's a little off-putting that it's not available to all Plus subscribers.

I doubt any early beta access program will allow all PS+ members. They say so in the official FAQ for the service. I guess for closed betas they have an idea of how many people they want involved so they can monitor a strict set of circumstances.

BTW, the blog confirms there will be no Move or 3D options in the beta. They are looking for bugs, server issues, etc.

Move support in beta?

Nope, this Beta is all about gameplay. Move and 3D are not supported here.

Ah well, I'll still enjoy getting a feel for the release. Here's a cool new KZ3 trailer for the beta announcement as well as a couple more details:

Quote:


The Beta will last for as long as we need to get good feedback.

We will be hosting 3 maps with the Exoskeleton and the Jetpack level being 2 of those. No content will be left out, as we want to test content that is in there."

~~~

“But Guerrilla,” I hear you mumble as you attempt to tear your eyes away from the trailer. “I’m not a PlayStation Plus subscriber. Isn’t there any other way to get into the Public Beta Trial?”

There is another way, but it’s going to require a bit of luck. It just so happens we still have 300 promotion codes lying around – 150 codes for SCEA territories, and 150 codes for SCEE territories. Next week, we’ll be organizing a giveaway in which 150 individuals from each territory will receive a promotion code that grants them access to the Public Beta Trial. So keep an eye on Killzone.com, @killzonedotcom on Twitter and the official Killzone Page on Facebook for full details of this giveaway!

Here is the first multiplayer trailer that came out a bit ago, showing off some of the new mechanical gadgets and enemies:

ah, NOW I understand.

Bummer I already own all the free ones coming up next. Like was said before, the real value for Plus is for new folks! I've gotten my money's worth though.

^^^ That's why I was happy to see that Alien Breed got a PS+ discount on launch day (even though I didn't get it). Maybe we'll see more of that for us old timers going forward.

Well, the beta access perk for PS+ continues to increase. Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood beta will be opened up exclusively to members of the service starting today. Unlike KZ3's 15K player limit, this beta is open for all PS+ subscribers.

Keep an eye on your message boxes. I received a PSN message from EA/Sony inviting me into the Dead Space 2 Multiplayer Beta, because I am a Plus member. Thought it was bogus until the attachment took me into the PS Store download screen (it's 305 MB).

Maybe it opened for everyone and I missed it? Anyway it was cool to get the message delivered over PSN. IDK if the gameplay will get me into the multi at all but it sure looks pretty and plays smoothly. Beta runs until Oct 19th.

I got it too. I'm not sure it was PS+, but I was wary that it came from Sony until the attachment took me to the restricted beta page in the PSN store.

Joe, or anyone for that matter. When does the PS store update on Tuesday? Is it around any given time? I'm so used to being on the west coast and working late that I didn't care. But I'm curious for this upcoming week.

Oh...and no beta invite here for me. Wonder how they sent those out for Dead Space.

The KZ3 theme may or may not come out today separately from the normal updated stuff. Reports are that all 10,000 beta keys given away in Europe were snatched up by PS+ members in 30 minutes.

Our 5,000 keys won't last as long. I'll post up the theme's expected post time as soon as I find out (EU members were told early what time it was coming).

So how do they know how long it took. Did the theme go a away after so many downloaded it. According to the info posted...we won't get an email about the beta until 10/25. So how does one know if you made the cut.

I'm guessing we'll have no idea if we made it until the 25th. I do know that the store hadn't updated by 6:50 EST and I downloaded the theme at 7:45. I imagine I'm right on the edge...we'll see.

Yeah, my wife hooked me up at 7:13 EST, apparently it went live at 7:10 pm. We'll see...PS boards are alive with people getting codes, not getting codes, getting online, not getting online...what a mess. Now one is sure the codes came from VIP, Twitter, PS+, ect...
