Call Of Duty: World At War Beta Not Coming To PlayStation 3

Perhaps this won't bother you, especially considering how many PlayStation 3 betas loom large on the horizon. Testing for LittleBigPlanet begins this week, Resistance 2 should start next week, and the Killzone 2 beta should kick off before the end of the year. But if you're hoping for an early look at Call of Duty: World at War, you're out of luck.

Earlier, we had noticed that when Treyarch and Activision announced the upcoming beta test for World at War, the PS3 wasn't mentioned. At the time, we couldn't confirm the meaning of this exclusion; will the beta come to the PS3 later, or is it not coming at all? Sadly, according to PSU, it's the latter. "We are running the beta only on the Xbox 360 and PC," said an Activision representative, and apparently, the reason for this is "primarily due to increased server and connectivity data." ...we're not entirely sure this excuse holds any water, but either way, it's bound to annoy more than a few PS3 owners. Of course, if they know their history, they shouldn't be all that surprised: Infinity Ward didn't bring the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare beta to the PS3, either. We had hoped, however, that with a year gone by and Sony's machine more popular than ever, that Activision would've taken the appropriate steps.

So no Call of Duty: World at War beta test for the PS3, but like we said earlier, there are plenty of other betas to try and enjoy. Ain't a single one coming to any other console but the PS3, too, so that's good consolation.

That's not very respectful of the PS3 and it's gamers. Wow! I would hope they issue some statement providing detail as to why this is happening. I mean, do they just not care about the PS3 user base?

Sorry, as I've said before, I don't hand that out to the public in the Comments section here.

But if anyone wants to add me, they can e-mail me directly. I generally have no reason to refuse. ;)

I don't care about demos anymore, at least for this holidays season. There are a lot of games to be distracted to even care about a beta anymore... or to care for COD5... actually

Dat's it, i might get COD WAW for 360 instead,since i can see all dedications goes to 360 n PC.It's now lookin more of a 360 game than ps3,how annoyin n disrespectful.Well they know ps3 users have a lot to be engaged in.If there r any games that will really put ps3 far ahead of the rest will be God of War 3 n FF XIII(it's multi-plat but believe me 360 will be fed realtime cowdung!)

See and it's because of idiot decisions like that why 1: I'm not buying it. and 2: The Server side of CoD4 was complete ass.

Because they ran the beta test on 360. You'd think they would learn from dumbassness.

I probably won't be buying it either. I have enough games to keep me busy until Killzone 2 comes out.

I'm hoping that the "increased server and connectivity data" has something to do with problems with PS3 servers as opposed to 360 servers. As much as I love COD4 playing on-line can be a real pain sometimes. I'm not sure how it is for the 360 folks.

I would like to think that with the 1 million plus subscribers to COD4 on the PS3 Treyarch wouldn't be ignoring them.

Doesn't matter. I'm passing on this one anyways. There are more important and better games to get this year.

Won't get COD4 until it's bargain bin $20 price tag so I sure are ain't getting this game. I'll be playing KZ2 and RE2 loooong before this one.

it is really unfair how ps3 gets no beta.....its true they treat it like just a 360 game....ps3 needs its servers tested more!

isn't PS3 CoD4 server is unstable because Activision/IW handle it?

in Xbox 360, its M$ that handle the servers. Thats why online play need Live Gold account.. not free....

in PC every server will differ, because every client can start a new server :)

I'm not sure how the servers work for each. It's just frustrating that the PS3 is again left to the side. That being said it is highly unlikely I would get this game until much later.
