Activision: Black Ops III Beta Was Biggest Ever On PS4

If you participated in the Call of Duty: Black Ops III beta on PlayStation 4, you weren't alone.

Activision just announced that "millions" checked it out, making it the biggest-ever PS4 beta.

No specific numbers, but the publisher claims this beta saw "more downloads, gameplay sessions, and total hours of gameplay than any other PS4 beta before it." The testing period ran between August 19 and 24 and it's ongoing on Xbox One and PC.

Of course, betas aren't just about giving gamers an early glimpse of a game; the goal is to provide the developers with important feedback. And Activision confirmed that Treyarch received "critical feedback and technical data" that will invariably help Black Ops III become an even better product. Added Sony boss Adam Boyes:

"Played by millions of PlayStation fans around the world, the response to the beta was massive and shows the strength when bringing together the best-selling console franchise with the best-selling game console. Signaling an impressive start of a new era for PlayStation and this famed franchise, there was no better way to welcome Call of Duty to its new home on PlayStation 4."

Call of Duty: Black Ops III will be ready to go on November 6 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.

Crunch! is the sound Microsoft makes beneath the weight of that statement.
