Killzone 3 Beta Rumors Continue, Sony Remains Mute
Whispers of the Killzone 3 beta continues, but Sony still isn't willing to talk about it.
A few days ago, a screenshot of a PSN friend evidently playing Killzone 3 made the Internet rounds, although most attributed it to the European beta rooms. Now, while they still can't say if the beta test will be available to the public, it seems that in addition to the screenshot, there's a real-life video. Yeah, well, okay. A little lame but we get the point. As for Sony's response, it's the standard, "we don't comment on rumors or speculation," which is sort of akin to the policy of not negotiating with terrorists. And because it's the default policy, you really can't read anything into it; you can't just say, "oh, a 'no comment' reply is as good as an admission." Nah, not from Sony. It's just what they say. Anyway, we've heard Guerrilla will show off multiplayer for Killzone 3 at GamesCom later this month, and of course, this beta will be a multiplayer test, so...
We just try to put the pieces together in a reasonable and logical fashion. Most big FPSs have betas, most kick in 4-6 months before the game releases, and KZ3 is set for February. So, perhaps we'll get a public beta in September or October...? We'll have to wait and see.
