First Round Of Killzone 2 Beta Invites Sent To European Gamers?

Hey! Since when did Europe become the toast of the town in the video game industry? At least so far as beta testing is concerned, anyway.

The first to get their grubby little hands on PlayStation Home, it seems our buddies across the pond are getting more preferential treatment in regards to the Killzone 2 beta invites. According to poster MagicDude4Eva in the PlayStation 3 South African forums (yeah, we're surprised they have a forum, too), the evidence is clear. "Dear Beta Tester, you have been invited to a beta test for Killzone 2 on PlayStation 3..." Well, damn. After doing some more digging, it appears other PS3 users have this invite tucked away in their inboxes as well, but this seems to be limited to European gamers. Of course, this is hardly official as we haven't heard anything from Guerilla, and it does make some sense, as Guerilla is a European developer. Also, this doesn't mean the beta will be restricted to Europe, nor does it mean European PS3 users will get to play a closed beta before the U.S. It just means they've gotten their invites first, provided all this is accurate.

However, it most certainly does mean one thing: we're going to be keeping a sharp eye out for any new developments concerning the Killzone 2 beta. It's slated to be the third PS3 beta in a row (after LittleBigPlanet and Resistance 2) that will bring in many, many eager PS3 owners, so it stays near the top of our priority list. If you have any info on this, don't hesitate to let us know.

That's awesome!

As usual i never get these invites, haven't been invited to a beta to date. But ah well, just glad that Europe are finally getting the warmer side of the shoulder.

The beta was sent out, but only to the European members with "beta tester" status.

Im sorry, "grubby little hands", screw you you rascist dick. The americans are always getting a better deal when it comes to games than us europeans. when we finally get a break this guy throws his toys out of the pram. I dont expect to read stuff like this on a respected site. As for the whole invite system, my friend has got into every beta so far including home,resistance,motorstorm,lbp,killzone 2 whereas others dont get anything. It seems once sony gets your username on their books then you get everything and the rest of us get left out. the whole system is unfair and it pisses me off! Rant over.
