Are you in the WarHawk Beta? We need your help!

Greetings, fair readers of PS3 Fanboy! We come to you today with a request that you may find interesting. A lot of you have e-mailed us saying that you were invited to the WarHawk beta. We, naturally, were not. So instead of sitting here and pretending to understand all the fun you may be having, we're going to issue a call for assistance. Here's the plan.

We'd like you to send us your impressions of the beta. Tell us what you thought -- what you liked, disliked, what seemed balanced, what was not. How the levels played, how the servers were (even though beta servers tend to crash more often), anything at all that you took away from the beta, we'd love to hear. When we get enough responses (or whenever the beta decides to end), we're going to put up a feature about what actual gamers thought about the game's direction and gameplay, using your quotes!

Sure, it's not "getting a free game" or anything, but when it comes down to it, it doesn't matter if the critics like a game. It matters if you do. So that's what we're planning to bring to the table. You can reach us with your information here, so give us a subject line that helps us know what you're talking about. Like "My WarHawk Experience" or something equally cheesy and sophomoric. Happy gaming!

1. No wonder there hasn't been a post about Warhawk so far.

3/12 PS buddies were playing Warhawk last afternoon. I am so jealous.

Thats ok because I will end up getting to play a better version when it comes out. I just hope its balanced between the vehicles, land folks and aeroplanes.

2. My only concern is that the beta players are restricted under an NDA. I'll check and see what the limitations of that might be. It may just be media. (video, screenshots)

3. I got in and I'll be more than happy to share my impressions about the warhawk beta. After I leave work of course.

4. Yeah, we're not supposed to say anything about the game to anyone. Seriously. It says we're not to discuss it with ANY third party.

Well, I'm sure they won't be pissed if I only say that the game is extremely fun and refreshing, and looks and sounds INCREDIBLE.

5. I'm sorry, but one of the first rules of the Beta Tester Agreement is that you can't tell the press about the game.

I'd love to, believe me.

6. It's one of the first things they say to you. Quote:

- disclosure of any part of the Beta Test Materials to any third party, including but not limited to any trade or consumer press, news agency or any competitor of SCEA, will cause significant and irreparable harm to SCEA, the extent of which may be difficult to ascertain. Accordingly, you agree SCEA shall be entitled to injunctive relief as well as all other legal remedies that may be available in the event you breach this agreement.

7. I'm in the beta, and would love to comment. But in the agreement I agreed to it says I am not supposed to disclose any info to any third party. And that includes PS3Fanboy.

8. How does the beta testing work.. eg. if you find a problem how do you report it? I guess there they are logging your play session and there is a file that can be sent to scea?

9. Enjoy it for me folks.

10. "Dear G.A.P. member,

Thanks for your recent interest in the Warhawk™ beta test. At the moment, we have all the beta testers we need for this phase. But don't lose hope: there may be more Warhawk beta test opportunities in the near future. Keep an eye on your inbox. We'll contact you if we have space in any further phases of the Warhawk beta test.


Thanks!
The PlayStation Underground"

No Warhawk for me either, and I didn't even know I was a GAP member...where's my Home invite?

Posted at 3:23PM on May 26th 2007 by John

11. When you have a problem with the beta, you have to report it directly to Sony, or discuss it with your peers at the Beta message board.

And being a GAP member didn't mean automatic Home invites. I know most GAP members, like me, just like everybody outside GAP let alone PSU didn't get in to that one.

12. I am in the beta, and thank god. I dont think I will be getting this when the game comes out. not a big fan. guess I never war to begin with, just got in to the beta on a whim.
Maybe it is just me, but I am a little bored with shooter games.
Not bashing the game, as it is pretty exciting, and the graphics are pretty sweet. Even the gameplay is pretty well done, albiet too easy to kill people/things. Just not a big fan of shooters anymore.

Posted at 3:36PM on May 26th 2007 by bob davey

13. I would give you some impressions if i wasnt under the NDA =(

Posted at 4:15PM on May 26th 2007 by Toby

14. i think its bullshit that i registered like when it first opened and didnt get it. sony sucks for that bc i didnt get the home beta either. i love my ps3 and my 360 but at least ms lets me play halo 3 unlike sny letting me play warhark or home.

Posted at 4:21PM on May 26th 2007 by tony

15. Well, I just read the disclosure and I'm sorry, but I can't say a word about the game. I know I said I would, but I read it and now I'm sworn to keep my lips sealed.

Posted at 4:23PM on May 26th 2007 by Enon777

16. you guys are the lamest ps3 fanboys EVAR! ..

of course i didnt get in .. got that same letter posted above .. havent been invited to any beta testing since i called motorstorm boring at a local chicago beta test ;(

i did however pre-order it today for me and my bro.

18. @UGOT2BKIDDING

We can't talk about it. It's under a NDA. Obviously you must be jealous. Why don't you go complain to Sony rather than blame us "fanboys" for Sony's rules.

Posted at 7:46PM on May 26th 2007 by Jeff B

19. why would a beta need such secrecy. the only way a game will get better is if more people see it and play it. there's videos and impressions of Halo 3 everywhere.

also the beta for the "Halo-killer" Killzone 2 has been announced....without any screenshots or gameplay footage.

i can understand developers being afraid of showing off a half assed product and giving a bad 1st impression, but we are buying them, why can't we help them and spread the word what works what needs to be fixed so they can build us a better game.

it's a fudged up policy. the more opinions the better. even if the opinions are word of mouth like this forum.

20. I just love how even being GAP member, I didn't get into this beta OR the fu***** home beta either. What kind of bullshit is this? Even after the sign ups and crap I get screwed over.
