inFamous 2 Beta Kicks Off

The beta set to test the new User Generated Content feature in inFamous 2 has begun. You in?

Just so you're aware, Sucker Punch has started its beta test; the invitations are rolling out now and the test period runs from April 12 through May 6. Right now, this seems to be restricted to those who registered through the game's official website, but it may become available to PlayStation Plus members some time soon. As for the rest of you, you'll just have to wait until June 7, which the full game hits store shelves. The "very best missions" from the beta will be included in the final game, although we're not entirely sure how Sucker Punch denotes the "very best." The exact definition remains up in the air. But if you think you've got enough of an active imagination to create awesome missions, and you're involved with the beta, feel free to tell us all about it.

We'll be sure to tell you our impressions when we're allowed to do so, and in 2011, there are few games we want more.

I tried to sign up for the beta a while ago, but couldn't find the sign up sheet on the website. Can somebody link it to me?

Damn, I would have loved to get into this beta.

But as this afternoon, my phat princess has hitched herself a ride with some USPS mother-trucker on a crucial journey to Minnesota to see a specialist for a bad case of Blinking Red Eye.

Mine did the same thing last week. I retired my old fat ps3 and pulled out my brand new cool blue slim ps3. I knew this day would come. Thanks Ben!

Yeah, I've done all I can to get a beta invite, but so far no go. I read though that early group would get invited today and their would be another round of invites in a couple of weeks.

I'll be crossing my fingers the whole time begging to be let in. I just want my hands on some infamous 2.

Damn, no code yet )=

I'm one of the biggest InFAMOUS fans ever, got the platinum on the first one and 100%'d the game on 3 different playthroughs (good, evil, neutral). If anyone has a spare code or a code they don't, I'd greatly appreciate it. I really wanna play this game.

It's funny how beta versions are so attractive to most gamers. What is a beta version? It's an unfinished piece of software containing major bugs, poorly tuned performance, unstable and with partially unimplemented/disabled features.

... Yet we all scream out in pain and frustration if we spot *one* frame of screen tearing or popup once it's released :)

because we play these betas and then provide developers with feedback, so they ought to fix the stuff we told them about.

I don't complain about those issues during beta, that's what beta is for, finding bugs. I've always found it annoying when people act like a beta is a demo or a representation of the actual game. It's just dumb to think a beta will be glitch free.

Because a game is supposed to be technically sound when its released and a beta is not. Plus, none of us have played an inFamous 2 demo at all, and we just want to get our hands on it, even if it is an unfinished version of it. Also, I'm pretty sure a lot of people would love to give feedback to help SP improve the final product as well.

Yeah I know, it was meant more as a funny remark, although I'm not so eager to try betas nowadays that's not always been the case.
I've played several betas over the years, I guess the turning point was after the beta testing of the Matrix MMO. We had spent months helping out, fighting bugs, and above all: Building our characters. The harsh reality didn't strike me until a few days before launch: Character wipe. Everything we'd done, all we'd gathered and spend litterary weeks on, just wosh out the window.

It's obvious why, and it's alays done with mmo's, but oh man. That's when I swore to myself, "never a beta again!". :D

sigh, sony gives EU the finger.......... YET AGAIN!

why is the ps3 even released outside the US?
sony, first in line to take your cash, but when it comes to giving you the content there nowhere to be found!

I don't really understand why this would be us exclusive. Cant they just give codes to other people around the world too? Plus the playstation is behind both xbox and wii in sales in the us so it makes no sense to give there weakest market the exclusive content.

You know, its funny how bipolar you are Mrs. blank line (see, even if you're a man, you act like a b*tchy woman all the time, so I'm going to call you Mrs. from now on; no offense to all the non-b*tchy women out there).

First you say you can't wait to play this PS3 exclusive game, then you moan about how Sony doesn't deliver on content? Why do you even own a PS3 if all you're gonna do is b*tch about it? Hell, why even game at all if all you do is complain about how you're having no fun (btw, complaining about the games is probably the reason you're having no fun)?

I'm sorry for being such an ass to you, but you truly deserve it. You always act like a butthurt fanboy who can't stop complaining about something for 5 seconds. If it isn't one thing, then its always another. You also lack the knowledge of the concept of constructive criticism. If a dev were to happen upon one of your many rants about how they should fix their games, they would write you off as another Internet nutjob who thinks he's entitled to say anything he wants just because he's an anonymous Internet cowherd. They wouldn't care about any of your criticisms, no matter how valid they are or not, they would just write you off as a hypocritical psychopath.

So I only see two options for you Mrs. cowherd: either start giving out calm, constructive criticism that doesn't involve exclamation marks!!!1!!!1!, entire words CAPITALIZED and letters repeated oooooooooover and oooooooooover again, or shut the hell up. You're annoying and you're not changing things you hate about games with your idiotic hate rants.

Whew. Now that I got that out of my system, I don't think I'll be replying to you for a while. I've said all I can possibly say about your condition, Mrs., and there ain't a damn bit more I can add to it.

Can't wait for this. I loved creating stuff in LBP2, though I'm sure the mission editor isnt as complex, I have learnt alot about level design and how to keep the players attention from wandering from LBP2. CAN'T WAIT!!!

Wish I was one of the lucky ones to get into this beta. I just hope they give good criticism so SP can make it the best it possibly can be. Can't wait for June 7!
