Beta Testing Application?

15 replies 190 views Edited Apr 9, 2013

Hi!

My name is Ritvik, I am a 18-year old boy from Canada.

I have started playing xbox 2 years ago, but ditched it a few months ago and started playing PS3 instead, i am a fan of First person shooters and open world games: mainly battlefield, call of duty, far cry 3, gta, saints row and the elder scrolls but i can keep an open mind to explore new games/franchises.

 

Anyways i would like to apply for beta testing, where can i go?

Definately not here. Smiley Tongue

 

What you need to do is sign up for Playstation plus. That is where early beta tests end up going for the most part.

Closed Beta Invites are based on pure luck. You get randomly picked to try out a game, or you somehow hunt down a person giving out a Beta Code.

Betas are pretty much the luck of the draw. Having Playstation Plus helps, but I don't think it's a prerequiste. I've been a Playstation owner for who knows how long and I've never had a beta invitation.

Betas are pretty much random luck. Having PlayStation Plus may or may not help you get an invite, but I can't test that because I do not have it. I know that I've never gotten an invite to a beta, but I wouldn't mind if I did get one.

Getting a playstation plus sub will definitely increase the chances of getting into beta's.

Definitely.

 

I had never got into any, but since Plus I've been in a few, Plus is the way to go.

 

P.S. Welcome to the PlayStation Community.

Off the forums, it's luck. But I feel like there is a list that Officials have chosen since they know how some of us act or help around. I've seen so many of the same users in the same beta before. Meh

Best way to get in a beta is to get involved for a particular game way ahead of time that you see coming down the line.  Sign up on their website, post there provide feedback, see if there will be a beta at some point.  Send private messages to the developer of the game to see if you can get in or not. Some are closed, some are open, some come to PS+.

 

If you want to get paid for it however... that is another matter where you have to actually work for the developer making the game.  Good luck on your beta hunt!  Beta testers can help shape the way a game gets released, it's not just playing a free game for a little while.  Feedback is the most important thing about being in a beta. Good luck!
