Side note: Didn't EVE roll right from Beta into full game in the same fashion? I'm assuming it did, as every indication I've seen points that way. The way I've heard "we were in beta" players talk anyhow..

No. All the Beta Characters were wiped and there were no names reserved. You could however train all three alts at the same time during the Beta. In the Beta you could actually transport ISK in your Cargo hold which resulted in duping exploits and although you retained skill points from say phases Medusa -> Gemini all the stacks of Cash I horded in my cargohold were removed.

ISK in the cargohold is awesome. Interesting about the Beta caracter wipe bit; although it is reasonable for them to do that. More practical on PC than console I'd imagine. I've never seen or heard of a console beta test though, so I've no idea really.

Would i be able to gift this possible code to a friend that does have a PS3? or is there gonna be a big herp derp about it?

This needs to be answered asap.

Also would be nice to know when the selection process actually starts or if it's already done.

The main reason I registered is because my nephew has a PS3 and lives about 20 miles away. Quite a few times he's asked me when is the Beta going to be released. He's actually very excited about it (much more than I am) and is very interested due to viewing the videos and the available little information about it.

CCP, you have some potential customers waiting.

I can understand the reasons for NDA, but I can't see any reason why CCP would not tell us that invites have already gone out, congrats to the lucky people etc. There is no harm in that. Then we can all stop posting about it!

make the game available on a real platform

Tedium and difficulty are not the same thing, if you don't realize this then STFU about game design.

at least, can you please give us an idea as to when you will be giving out the Beta Keys? By doing that, you will allow me and others, to stop checking our email every five minutes to see if you sent them. Thank you.

I am a PSN beta tester, eager to get my hands on this beta.

Will your be running a full open beta at some point?

I really dont get it that you arent going to port it on PC as well. I mean, the argument of unfair advantage
for PC users doesn't even stand since PS3s can use keyboards and mouses as well and you said Dust will be compatible with them.

I mean, is it only for the "exclusive" tag that youre doing this or what?
#414 - 2012-01-08 03:43:08 UTC
They probably only handed out keys to PSN + members :/

Assuming PSN + members get first go myself. Holding out hope that, given the number of players in this thread who obviously also did not get in; which is by all appearances most of them, I may still have a chance.

[quote=m3talc0re X]Me, along with probably everyone else, has been dying for an EVE based fps game. I'm not buying a PS3 for it though. Putting it on PS3 only and nothing for PC at all is a kick in the face.. I can understand wanting to branch out and make more isk (iceland's currency...), but not giving it to us PC players is downright insulting.[/quote

oh so thats what ISK comes from.. i did not know this.. i feel stupid. xD

I don't agree with all those saying the beta will be most likely for PS+ members. This is the beta, and CCP offered it to us EVE players using directly the account management. If they wanted to offer it for a semi commercial purpose to their future player base, they just would have adressed PS+ subbers directly. At the contrary I think they are trying to find a way to let us ALL have at least a chance to test it. I mean: the more of us who will try it, the more the feedbacks. And I don't think we will be billions and trillions btw. Probably they'll try to balance squads on a timezone base, but I'm just guessing.

Of course I'll be wrong, but the reason I'm bumping the topic here is that I just want to ask CCP some informations. It's not necessary to make a mistery upon somehting totally unknown and to retain basic informations where there is no information at all. Do you remember about your solemn promises about not to fall again into your "poor information syndrome"? Well this is (was) a good chance.

Is it too much to come here and tell us about your intentions? An idea about _when_, are we asking too much maybe?

I think your maybe missing the point of a closed beta.
Testing is always subject to non disclosure. The beta has been announced, we have had the opportunity to register interest, now we wait for further details and a possible invite
#420 - 2012-01-08 11:50:04 UTC
I'm pretty certain that keys have not yet been sent out.

I mean, if they were, people would be boasting about it.

I know I would, if I got one.
