No Beta Or Release Details For PS3 Version Of World At War

EA has worked pretty hard in 2008 to regain the trust of PlayStation 3 owners, and in all honesty, they've done a pretty decent job. However, PS3 users may put another big publisher in their cross-hairs this holiday season.

Today, Treyarch and Activision announced both a release date and a public beta testing phase for their upcoming title, Call of Duty: World at War. However, they only confirmed the date and beta for the Xbox 360 and PC; those two platforms will see the beta in October, and the release date for the final game is November 11. Now, if you will remember last year, PS3 owners were left out of the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare beta, too, but we would've assumed that practice is old-fashioned. You know, designers have had another year to become accustomed to the intricate PS3 architecture, so what's the deal? Why aren't PS3 owners involved in the beta, and perhaps more importantly, without an official release date, does this mean the PS3 version is behind schedule? If true, this will not be received well by owners of Sony's next-gen machine...

According to MTV Multiplayer, Activision will only say that beta and release details for the PS3 version are yet to come. We have no idea if we'll get access to the beta, nor do we know if that November 11 release date will prove true for the PS3. Stay tuned.

Wow, so they're as much of assholes as infinity ward? Wow. I hope they realise that beause they didn't do a beta for ps3 for CoD4 the server quality and conditions were some of the worst i've ever seen, even to this day.

It's like they're dumb enough to assume it will be the same as xbox.. Oh well, prepare for another really poor server quality Call of Duty guys.. Even more reason for me NOT to buy it.

If it comes later than Xbox or never.....whatever. I'm still enjoying COD4 and a few other titles. Also looking forward to a couple of games in the near future. In the meanwhile I have plenty to keep me busy and very satisfied.

As I said in other post, COD5 is gonna have a rough time in the PS3 going against Socom, Resistance and in a couple of months KZ2, and if you think in other games that are no shooters coff LBP coff the future is cloudy. And Treyarch is not a beloved developer... so

In the 360 they have Gears 2 and... ok they have Gears 2. COD5, I think, has a better future in MS machine than in Sony's.

You could look at the bright side. If PS3 is delayed, perhaps PS3 for one of the first times ever will actually be better than the other consoles. It has the ability to have better graphics and gameplay but most gameing manufactures are lazy and wont take the time to actually take advantage of the stronger PS3 features. Instead they will just port the same junk that goes to the other console systems.

If I have to wait a little longer to have a much better game in the end than I could have had with another console, then brovo Activision for working hard for the PS3 community.

i really dont understand why if ps3 game release got delayed someone always say it will have better graphic.......

the pc version will always have better graphic.

CoD4 pc, ps3, xbox 360.

in pc is a lot better, the textures is really detailed and hi res on PC. (but it need VGA with 512MB RAM)
