http://blog.us.playstation.com/2011/01/19/buy-killzone-3-get-early-access-to-the-socom-4-multiplayer-beta/

It's from the Playstation Blog, I think this is could be used as an official document ?

Early Access is all it says, the same as everywhere else. And i guess the term "Early" simply means "before open access". Kinda mad that Plus users get in before Beta Card holders. Oh well, nothing we can do about that.

The card itself says Early Access but the blog link above says they would be first. Kind of mis leading because the Blog was out first advertising and people assumed first meant before everyone else. I am so glad I rented KZ3 first, I didn't care for the game at all, let alone knowing the Beta Card got you in 2 weeks later than it opens.

The end of the first paragraph. "If you want to experience SOCOM 4’s 32-player multiplayer battles first, buying Killzone 3 is the easiest way to get access."

That is a statement. It does say the easiest way, but in that context it means easiest to get first access.

There is one of two possibilities.

1. It is the truth and the first 2 phases will not have access to 32 player matches.

2. Sony lied in a official statement.

I still think "first" is just a reference to the final product. We get to play Socom 4 multiplayer "first" because its a beta before the game comes out. i don't think they intended it to mean before the private beta.

Or maybe they hadn't considered Plus, and Sony probably threw that at them, cause being a Plus member gets you exclusive access to MOST betas so Zipper could have had that thrown on them at last minute, and made an additional "stage".

I think you guys read too much into things :\
Its literally one word in an old post.

Besides Paul, you're already getting in on stage one, the private beta.

First means first. I see no room for interpretation. This is the post that got the people that bought KZ3 for the beta to do that.

It was Sony that made that post not Zipper, so they would have known the plans for the beta, as they are the marketing guys, they guys who get the final say.

It isn't reading into it too much. There are actually people who bought the game because of that "one word." I feel that they have done those people wrong for doing that to them.

Anyone who bought a game for "early access" to a beta is an idiot. In a hundred places it clearly says "Early Access" which, in classic Zipper style, is a generalized way of avoiding giving specific times/dates/explanations. Early Access means before its available to everyone. People who read too much into things, for one specific word in only one place are just looking to cause trouble.

Just fans hoping to get into the Beta Early. But yeah, spending 65 dollars just for a Beta card is a bit over board. I bet some people learned a valuable lesson with this, DON'T TRUST SONY OR ZIPPER. lmao. Sad

Yeah. Even though its only a week or 2 diff. It says first . Fitst in the english language means before anyone else. So maybe they changed the definition of the word. Just like theyre advertising s4 as the first socom on ps3.

Iam so glad did not buy KZ3 and I waited. I just got PS PLUS for 3 months $17.99 so I get it before KZ3 people lol. Not bad deal for $17.99. Should give me lots of time to test game out see if its worth buying.

Haha, not what I mean't. I was hoping you could do what I do with my friends. Change your PSN password, then lock your checking info so I can't steal from you, then 5 minutes later change it back to your original password so I can't get back on it.

I understand if you don't want to though.

Yes but first is relative. Being first in your heat does not mean that you are first in the country, etc. Its a relative term. Here they meant first before the non-special crowd.

As for PS+, it clearly states that buying PS+ makes you eligible for betas and gives you a leg up on normal people. So of course they got some recognition from Sony as well.

Lastly, they did not advertise Socom 4 as the first Socom on the ps3. That was a comment made from a few bloggers / reporters that forgot to do their homework. Zipper responded by saying "Yes this is the first Socom that WE have made for the ps3".

Come on man, stop hating for the sake of hating lol Very Happy
