Why is it that betas are hardly actual betas anymore, but just selling points? Tons of people bought Crackdown purely for the Halo 3 beta. Same goes for Halo ODST and the Halo Reach beta. Betas in these areas are hardly actual testing grounds to help make a final product but more of a "HEY YOU CAN PLAY THIS GAME'S MULTIPLAYER FOR A LIMITED TIME IF YOU BUY THIS GAME!" I guess it doesn't help that Medal of Honor seems to be getting rather negative responses.
Look 3 posts below, you know what to do.
But yeah, with the point you made, betas are becoming more and more restricted to people who buy a game and get it as a bonus,
it's a pretty dastardly way to try and promote the game and sell more.
Man, missed that completely. Thanks, already sent a report off so it can get closed or whatever
Hooray! Battlefield 3. Though I've never played BF2. I have played BC2, but some people consider that at a different level as BF2 though. Here's to hoping for even larger scale battles(64?) and mod tools. It'd be nice to see that.
Though I DID play in the MoH Beta and did the survey, but no bug testing as I didn't play much and the ones I found were major and reported on many forums. As for the game play... It felt off... Didn't like it. Well the beta is over now? I think.
Another thing about the betas they've done, it seems that keys on previous betas work or even those EA redeem codes for like Dragon Age, so you may not even have to buy MoH for a beta key, unless they improve the system.
hmmm... another reason to get this game
