These kind of topics scare new players (and thus target audience as well) away. Please don't make them. Please...

In theory, in PS, everyone will be noob.

I don't think i've got the xbox version anymore. I might be mistaken though. Would be a blast trying it on xbox again.

Agreed. Everyone, apart from the devs maybe, will be noob to begin with.

We should all be alpha testers in my opinion. You know how when you write a speech, and then read through it, you can't find many mistakes, because it is your own? Same thing here. We could provide a lot of input.

I kinda disagree only a select few should be able to beta test it , because some may not be mature enough

to report  glitches or have the eye for detail that may occur in the test. I believe though,  Westfall,

Noisewater, Ion67, myself ,spekkio, lochang, snakebit , Solidius Snake , just to name a few ( i do have others but htat would take to long ) would be the right candidates


-Thanks Murdy for da Sig <3  xD

IMO alpha should be closed, while leaving beta open. This would give best results imo.

We might be hiring some pros in game testing to do the alpha and beta testing. Sorry.




















j/k. We'll make up a good plan when we're closer to alpha.

Who gave you the right to dictate the alpha testers.. and not mature enough? Please. Everybody who is on the forum, cares about PS so obviously all will report any bugs / glitches if they come across any. Thats why there are always bugs in games, not enough people test them & find them all. Im sure furge or someone will make a bugs section on the forum or something so there is some sort of system in place, as to bug fixing etc & by giving it to such a small group of people, who YOU consider "mature" enough to report bugs is bound to piss everybody else off. This is coming from the dude who makes flame thread because papaskull won't play with him... Oh and where is papa these days?

Don't mean to intrude here but this thread is just a request for some Xbox players to hook up to get a game. Unfortunately the off-topic thread was created after this thread so I had no where else to put it. Maybe it could be moved or locked or something. I don't understand how all this talk of alpha/beta popped up.

Moved at the request of the topic starter to the still new Off-Topic forum where it fits better than in the PS category :)

Eye for detail - Elaborate. If you are talking about errors in mapping or modeling ... well we have people staring at these models and maps for hours on end and in the process of constructing said maps and models we become quite familiar with the smallest details; it is highly unlikely a tester will notice something we are unaware of. We are not a large company in a rush to meet a deadline and as such we are unlikely to make the mistakes in prop placement or level construction you might have seen in other beta games.

Report glitches - So let's say we have 50 testers who report glitches and 10 testers who don't. Assuming those 50 that are reporting glitches don't see one of the glitches that those 10 do see; we are in no different of a situation than if those 10 who didn't report weren't testing. Now let's say we have one of those 50 witness one of those 10 abusing or experiencing a glitch then we have just benefited from those 10 non-reporters. There is nothing to lose.

I don't particularly have an opinion on the matter at the moment but your argument is 100% groundless and displays the very immaturity you are saying isn't beneficial in some people who might be testers.

You Sir, fail!  ;)

Edit: And how did this even become the topic when this thread is about xbox players?
