Theres a lot of beta's released when devolpment is close to an end. No one wants to try a beta that has numerous missing textures and shoty hit detection. Beta's are normally released a couple months before the games released, not only to appease fans, but the real point is that when the mass of gamers get their hands on the beta version the devolpers can see exploits present in the game that testers may have missed.

Yes, just because it's close to being done doesn't mean they can't have a beta. LBP Karting almost done

If this "action packed beta" is PSABR this will be the greatest summer ever

I will be so happy and cry tears of joy and that **bleep** membership, no matter how expensive it is

If it's close to being done, they'd call it a 'demo' not a beta. 

It's definitely post-beta stage

This close to release they would put out an RC (Release candidate) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Software_release_life_cycle#Beta

A release candidate (RC) is a beta version with potential to be a final product, which is ready to release unless significant bugs emerge. In this stage of product stabilization, all product features have been designed, coded and tested through one or more beta cycles with no known showstopper-class bug. A release is called code complete when the development team agrees that no entirely new source code will be added to this release. There could still be source code changes to fix defects, changes to documentation and data files, and peripheral code for test cases or utilities.

 

They could release an RC but Since they have had this game out on show floors since E3 I don't see a Beta coming out. A demo seems to be the more likely choice.

An online beta is to test the online aspect of the game

Like testing having many servers on handling thousands of people at the same time

and also testing the online gameplay for bugs gltiches, how well it works and stuff
