Re: Beta Registration emails.

Aug 13, 2009

Hi Abigale, how are you?

  Thanks for the post, and I would kindly ask that next time, maybe they can give you a little more info to pass along to us. Last year they sent out invites similar to this for Resistance and Killzone and one other that I am drawing a blank on. ANyway, last summer thru fall, I was in Resistance, LBP, HOME, SOCOM, Motorstorm( in reverse order lol) Now I have been in a Titanic amount of BETA's going back to 2001 for the PS2.

 

This whole "criteria" thing is really out of whack., out of kilter..., and off it's rocker...I just don't understand this process of picking people based on certian criteria, when for EXAMPLE, well 2 EXAMPLES actually that:

 

- that certain criteria does NOT choose a previous experienced Beta tester, yes, someone like me, and many others like me I have spoken to today, who have been involved in a plethora of Beta tests, and who has been a PSU member since 2001 and then GAP member since 2004 when supposedly GAP members get preference

and 2ndly

- that certain criteria does in fact choose a person who has NOT been a Beta Tester, OR PSU/GAP member and who has never played any type of war game period, or online wargames, like R2, Killzone 2,

 

Now let me get this out of the way. Am I disappointed I didn't get a Beta Invte? ABSOLUTELY. Could I still get a Beta invite for the 2nd part of it, sure.  Am I jealous? of course, who wouldn't be, especially for one of thee most anticipated games ever. Yes Uncharted 2 is gonna be awesome.. but this game no one has ever attempted before, unless you wanna count the PC games. lol..

 

Is this sour grapes on my part? I say NO..now the reason I say no, and why I said I don't understand this so called "criteria" because this IS now the 3rd time this "Criteria" has chosen some people for this Beta, who:

 

a) NEVER played a strategic game, or strategic stealth games of any kind  (yes boxing, madden etc does have strategy yea yea lol)               

and the MOST IMPORTANT PART AND FACTOR!

 

b) Never, ever BOUGHT, rented, NOR played any type of war game like COD, Resistance, Socom, Killzone, Brothers n Arms etc..yet, they get chosen?

 

Now I know this for fact because 2 of my friends, 1 in Florida who I used to work with, and play golf for real and online with, and someone I met thru PS HOME, told me they got the Beta invite questionaire if you will, for M.A.G. Since I said, "Yeah whatever..when I heard the "click" for my mailbox. I was thinking Oh God ..no, way in hell!!

 

When I opened it up i was cursing in my head, but then i was dumbfounded on how they got picked?

When that friend is a sports guru...Madden, Tiger, Basbeball, boxing Sknowboarding.. basically all EA's sprots titles

 

I respect that fact that everyone on your end, doesn't always get the straight out facts on what is going on regarding who gets sent what invites and so forth. But when experienced others get pushed aside, or leap frogged so to speak and are not chosen, how does it look when the one who is chosen, has never been in a BETA, has never played 1st person shooters, or squad based games, and the only war game he has ever played was Warlords for Atari in 1981 lol

Please guys, Stop begging.

It only makes you seem desperate onto something that people will get by luck and random.

There is nothing that will get you this even if you plaid Killzone2, Resistance 2, etc.

I can only hope the best for you all and good luck. But for future refference just stop asking for it, and just discuss on the current info available to you.

I dont think so. As the guy that brought the codes up first had 0-2 post here. So, I think it really is based on psu criteria.

It is based primarily on your game preferences in your psu profile.  If you dont have any preferences set, they you should go do that.
