Resistance 2 Beta Kicks Off Friday?
Many of you have already been granted access to the upcoming Resistance 2 beta; you either pre-ordered the game at GameStop and received your key code that way, or you registered at the official site for beta testing. However, we're still not exactly sure when the the action will begin.
Initially, we had heard Sony prepared to begin testing on October 6, but that day has come and gone, so we're still in a waiting pattern. Thankfully, that beta may only be a few days off: firstly, we've received several inside tidbits of information that points towards a Friday, October 10 launch. We won't reveal the sources for that, but let's just say they're at least semi-reliable. Secondly, an administrator over at the Resistance 2 forum posted the following message in reply to all the rumors zipping around the Internet:
"Over the last few days, I've seen several threads that *think* they know the start of the public beta. Well, they are wrong.
We haven't announced any firm dates for the beta yet. But trust me, it's close (like, real close). Please be patient and just ignore the threads falsely reporting the start date. As soon as we can tell you, we will--promise!"
Well, this Friday would certainly qualify as "real close," so here's hoping our information is correct. We've been waiting patiently to get our hands on one of the most anticipated games of the year, and indeed, one of the most anticipated next-gen titles to date. Resistance 2 is scheduled to release on November 4, and it's guaranteed to be an absolutely gigantic holiday game; the PS3 should get yet another awesome exclusive for 2008!
