Uncharted 3 Beta Stats

It came, it saw, it blew our minds. The Unchart­ed 3 beta has wrapped up and now we have to wait until Novem­ber to get to the fun again. Playsta­tion post­ed some num­bers on the beta say­ing it was the largest beta on the Playsta­tion net­work to date. Here’s some food for thought: ‑Total unique Beta play­ers: 1.53 mil­lion peo­ple ‑Total kills: 1.9 bil­lion ‑Total Cash col­lect­ed: 1.4 TRILLION dol­lars (that’s greater than the gross domes­tic prod­uct of Spain, the eleventh high­est GDP in the world!) ‑Total shots fired: 48 bil­lion ‑Total match­es com­plet­ed: 22 mil­lion ‑Total time played: More than 362 years worth of match­es Yea pret­ty insane it what I thought too.

Medal of Honor Beta Review

So I got a chance to play the beta for Medal of Hon­or on PS3 last night and thought I would share my thoughts on it. First off as soon as you jump into a game the first thing you will notice (or at least I did) is the graph­ics and detail. Yes there are some graph­i­cal bugs, but keep in mind IT IS A BETA. It is a non-fin­ished prod­uct. With that aside the game is beau­ti­ful. I am will­ing to go out on a limb and say MOH maybe the best look­ing FPS to date. Every­thing is very smooth and its reac­tion to explo­sions and gun­fire are spot on. Now as you play, you get to choose from 3 base class­es. Oper­a­tor, Spec Ops, and a Sniper. Each class has a dif­fer­ent main weapon and sec­ondary weapon. When you changeRead more…

In order to pre­pare for the final phase of beta test­ing, we plan to extend theRead more…

Steam Client Beta : It’s Just Better

Steam is work­ing on a new ver­sion of it’s steam client.  Beta par­tic­i­pa­tion is option­al and cur­rent­ly any­one can join in.  I had a chance to sit down and play with the new Steam Beta today and I have to say that I am pret­ty impressed.  There are sev­er­al new fea­tures or “rein­ven­tions of the wheel” that I am real­ly enjoy­ing.   Instead of telling you every­thing that has changed I’m going to give you the major high­lights of what I think makes this new steam release bet­ter. The first thing that real­ly stood out to me in this beta is the chang­ing of the col­or schemes and over­all feel of the client.   Most of the greens that were in the pre­vi­ous ver­sion are gone.  The client it now pre­dom­i­nant­ly black and gray.   It looks sleek­er, it feels more mod­ern and it looksRead more…
