I'd say this is true with 99% certainity. Would have to be almost a fool to think the beta actually starts the same day based on my previous experience

Yea well it certainly would be cool to have beta start on 28th already, yes. But I really doubt it. They probably would've told us if they had it locked down, I mean it's a HUGE source of hype right there.

I highly doubt beta will begin before GDC. I've been wrong in the past though

Well they said the beta starts later than when the magazine comes out. However I am excepting that they are going to announce the beta date on GDC and that it starts in the same month.

This is very much correct. Having a key =/= starting the beta.

Other than that, I don't have any more information. RadarX will have more to share as it gets closer and/or we have updates from the rest of the team.

Damnit; although I didn't think beta would start in the next two weeks, I had a crumb of hope :P

i have another question about beta!

if you can already talk about it...

will early beta be a fulltime beta, or will there just be some special days for testing?
i have seen betas doing it both ways and i wasn´t around at the ps1 beta.

Early Beta's typically do not have full time servers just because it requires resources to keep them up and running. As you get later in the Beta process, it becomes more about load testing and long term performance so sizable efforts are made to keep things going.

Ultimately, everyone will have plenty of time in Beta.

Re: What we know about Beta.


Radar, i hope you can quickly answer me these few, or at least tell me that you cant answer them:

1. How exactly are the priorities going to work? Right now im under the impression that getting a PCGamer key means 100% access once beta starts, while being a past or current PS1 player may NOT get you in right away. Is that correct? Is there some extra stuff that needs to be taken into account, like the time you subbed last for PS1? I hope u say yes to this one, as it would pretty much give me a weapon of mass subscriptions for the plannet "last month of old Auraxis", starting hopefully this weekend!

2. What about my pals? Theres a whole bunch of people in my outfit that are all looking forward to PS2. Most of them played PS for a loooonng time, but we also got new people from other games looking forward to it. Is there any way i could get a few extra keys once beta starts, to get whoever got left out in the first wave into the game?


edit: any additional infos about beta, like how long it will run at least, how many players you plan to invite with the first wave, etc, would be cool as well.

Also, give us a free month of PS1! I need to see a poplock for the very last time in that old, old game before beta hits, just to say goodbye to a whole lot of memorys!
