Uncharted 2 Second Beta Phase Starts On September 15?

If you were in the first Uncharted 2: Among Thieves beta, you'll likely want to participate in the second. Right?

According to GamerZines, we are reminded of this second beta phase by Naughty Dog's Amy Hennig, who last month said, "I hope I'm not speaking out of turn, but there should be a second phase of the beta." Well, we knew about this; pre-ordering the game will get you access to this multiplayer demo/beta test, which now appears to be slated for September 15. This is based on the date provided by Play.com, which also states that this beta test will be "significantly larger than the previous," and it'll feature "numerous maps." The only aspect of this we're unclear on is whether or not this demo or beta (or whatever it is) will indeed be restricted to those who pre-order the game; might there be another way for people to get in? We had heard that over 130,000 people were involved in the first beta phase and if Naughty Dog wants an even bigger sampling the second time around, maybe they'll need another sign-up program of sorts. On the other hand, considering how huge Uncharted 2 should be, there might be plenty of participants 'cuz a zillion fans will pre-order.

Anyway, just as a reminder, this definite Game of the Year candidate is scheduled to release on October 13 in North America. And we'll keep an eye on this second beta phase here.

Yep thats the next "beta". I'm hoping a lot of others that didn't get to experience the first beta get a chance for this one. This game is pretty amazing as it is.

yea i would love to participate in the beta, but 5K says i wont be able to access it since its exclusive to europe and US like last time.
when are sony going to stop treating us like the sole of their shoe and treat us with the same respect of other countries.
or do i have to treat them the same way they treat me and leave them?
im sick of their attitude to australia, every time they publish a game we get it weeks later and we miss out on limited editions.
thanks to sony we dident get the LE for resistance 2, i know we were getting it because ted price in a interview said sony dident want them releasing it here.
for god knows what reason.
havent they received enough of my cash yet?

Too bad, since I'm not gonna pre-order until the very end of September (I get money then).

Although, I was in the first phase, so I can wait for the full game instead.

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
