It's just one of the many perks provided by the service. Like with Qore before it, the initiative for the interactive magazine was that as a subscriber (or pay-by-video user) you'd have access to betas and other times a free theme. The chunk of of Qore were the features inside, such as video interviews with game studios as the Qore team went to dig up details on the latest buzz of a hotly anticipated game.

 

Eventually came Plus, so Qore was swept off to the side in a way. Amongst the betas Plus users have seen since launch of the service would include DC Universe Online, Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception, Starhawk, and Tom Clancy's Ghost Recon: Future Soldier. Betas are not always exclusive to Plus, but it's often the case that Plus users do have access to them ahead of non-Plus members.

 

If you'd rather not wait for a beta, does it take that long to scrounge up around $20 for a three-month term? Although patience may be thin, if you are able to take your mind off of waiting then eventually the game that has your fascination tied up in knots will eventually come out within weeks or months. You won't just be pre-testing the game at this point; you'll actually be playing the real thing. That, in some ways, is better than knowing what the experience will be like before you actually initialize your first playthrough of the game.

Well if they didn't offer it to PS+ exclusive subscribers, who would buy PS+? No one. So that's how they get their sales, lol

Boo Hoo, woe is me!

 

Sorry but if I choose to pay extra for a service like PS Plus & with that service comes the opportunity of some "goodies" like access to Beta's why should I feel bad for people who can't afford or who won't pay for it?
