Rumor: Resistance 2 Beta Opening Up To The Public Today

Well, it kinda defeats the purpose of scrambling about to land a spot in a closed beta, but we believe in equal opportunities for all gamers.

According to IGN, we've just heard that starting today, Insomniac and Sony Computer Entertainment will make the Resistance 2 beta open to all PlayStation 3 owners who have access to the Network. It's currently closed, but perhaps only for a few more hours. When the time is right, head on over to MyResistance.net and apply for a spot, which should be granted with no questions asked. We've been playing the beta for the past week or so and we're quite happy with what we see; we believe you will be, too; this is some serious multiplayer fun! This information kinda came out of the blue so we don't have any concrete time details, but we're relatively certain the closed door opens at some point today. You'll be able to check out both the Competitive and Cooperative modes, get a taste of the insanity of a 60-player battle (currently only available on the Orick map), and try out different modes like Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Skirmish.

Once it does open, perhaps you want to go into the forums and arrange some matches between PSXE members. The original title was a favorite of ours and we'll all play the sequel quite a bit as well (provided we can find the time). Therefore, don't be surprised if me or Arnold shows up in one of your matches... We look forward to seeing you there. :)  We'll let you know if we can get an official confirmation.

This is why I love your site Ben! I've signed up for the Beta a zillion times and never got the email. Now it looks like I'll get my chance. Thanks for the heads up.

That would be very cool...PSX Clan for R2 and then carry the clan over to Killzone2 when it arrives. It would be great to mix it up with you guys.

MyResistance.net is reporting it. Does that make it a non rumor?

Not a clue. I think (hope) that you have put your PSN ID in so when the store updates later on, your R2 beta will be there. Abit like HOME beta where some people had it on there store update.

im pretty sure its being treated as a beta.

otherwise there would be no application process.
in other words, you apply for the beta.
then if you get in (which aparently you are guaranteed to) then they give you a key, then you go to "Redeem Code" on the XMB and once youve entered it correctly, it sends you to the download client.







p.s

so whos up for this PSXE clan? =]

Ben, you should make an article announcing a PSX Clan where we can all post our PSN IDs.

IGN also revealed the start date of the beta’s open access period. It begins tomorrow (October 23), so if you haven’t applied yet, we suggest doing it…like, NOW (http://beta.myresistance.net/apply)!

it's true.. but you have to sign up for it.. instead of it just being released on the psn..

Me too. My PSN id is my name snglbck26. If anyone wants to start one I'll be glad to join for various games. Right now I play primarily COD4 and burnout paradise. Will start playing Motorstorm PR starting next Wednesday.
