I have applied, even though after I had already sent in my application that I noticed that the processor I said I had was a step lower than what I really had.

I'm signed up. Here's hoping for everyone! GL!

w00t! That would be sooo sweet, if some of us got on the beta... I forgot to list the alliance as a fan site on my App, but oh well.... I need to do more to it to really make it a fan site... Once I finish my XML class, then I will do more, I think....

SH, I think that would be more of a negative than a positive. It's kind-of like letting the internet papperatzi into the game. But then again, what do I know. I've never got in a beta once even though I've tried about a dozen times.

Internet Paperatzi? WTF? I duno, I think it could be a double edged sword, but Who knows for sure? I've been on 2 Betas, so we'll see if I make it on a third....

I have been on the Diablo 2 online beta. The thing was I was away from my computer when I got notified of it so I let my brother play wail I was away. Normally I don't apply for betas unless I have a true interest in the game.

I like playing on Beta tests. When I was on the Battle Isle 4 beta, it started out as a cool game, but they rushed it to beta, and then they tweaked some key stuff, and ruined the whole game. It was a huge dissappointment. But it wasn't too buggy, which was the only saving grace of that beta, and Tribes 2, well, it was tough. You were supposed to be able to run it with a K6-2 500 or better, with 256Mb RAm, and a Voodoo 3, but as we all know, that is NOT the case. The voodoo ruined my experience with That beta. I would always get UE's because of not having OpenGL support. But this time around, I am all set for a beta. High end system, with Broadband, and some free time to test the hell out of plaetside.

We should start hearing from the PS Team soon... I hope I make it!
11-09-2002, 05:51 PM
Hopefully we do..
At least a couple of us
shoot there should be allot of testers if they want good results of what full play will be like

There will be two beta's, the beta to find problems and another for online testing. I really want to be on the online testing personaly.

They are starting their internal beta with Sony employees in spare time and Dev team. Then their limited beta which we applied for then the open beta which is what I am participating in on sims online right now.

I just want to Play PS as a Beta Tester, so I can get a feel for it, and see if it's worth paying $50 for, and then a monthly fee....
11-15-2002, 11:46 AM
They have made their choices, I didn't get picked :cry:
11-15-2002, 12:04 PM
Well I will pay from what I have seen already. I would even pay to play T2 at a reasonable price. :o
11-15-2002, 03:29 PM
How did you find that out? And yeah, I'd pay to play T2, if there was more patch support for it...
11-16-2002, 12:35 AM
Thought I had seen it posted on their site.
11-16-2002, 04:06 PM
I searched to forums, and the site, and I didn't see it.
11-17-2002, 01:20 AM
Okay- I checked the PS forum, and I found a response from a PS admin, and he said that they had no idea when the Beta Emails were going out, as they have 13,000 DxDiag Files to wade thru.
I'd give them another month. :lol
11-18-2002, 11:27 AM
Ok, I thought I had seen it no the news or something.
11-18-2002, 10:15 PM
Nope. Dave himself got on a thread that I was on and said that there were no emails sent as of yet. It sounds like they have made the first cuts though, as they started with 40,000 apps and cut it down to 13,000...now it's just getting it down to 1,000. Hopefully, we'll get some movement going in the next couple of weeks.

i would pay to play T2 if it was MMO... that would be sweet if someone said lets take T2 and give it a persistent world with realm stuff like planetside has. it would't really be that hard apart from making it marketable and financially feasible.

I'm guessing the network code might need a little tweaking, though.
03-06-2003, 03:29 PM
hee hee, ok so it would be a major undertaking. i'm not a forkin programmer.

It would still be pretty cool, though.
