Call of Duty 4 beta to be exclusive to the US
Posted by XanTium | August 2 12:51 EST | News Category: Xbox360
 
From xbox360fanboy.com:


In a right jab to the collective kidneys of Europe and Canada, Infinity Ward and Activision have confirmed that the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare online mulitplayer beta will only be available to US residents. This morning, CVG chatted with publisher Activision when they confirmed the news, but wouldn't elaborate to why the beta was restricted to US Xbox Live members.

Sux for CA and EU residents, sorry guys. sad.gif

Cool there will be a beta though. Wonder what the requirements will be or if it's a free for all to test (didn't see any mention of it in the article). Hopefully it's a free for all beta and anyone in the US can play it.

EDIT: From another article, it appears the demo/beta will be put on MarketPlace for anyone in the US to download.

Xbox 360's sold in Europe should just come with a complementary kick in the groin. I feel so special living in Europe. dry.gif

- Premium costs around $550.
- Instead of a price drop, we get something that we really don't need or want. Don't even remember what that was or is going to be.
- Live costs a lot, at least compared to US or Japan ($82 / year)
- No exclusive free games, no tv-shows or movies, no nothing.
- Prizes exchanged for gamerscore never made it to Europe, thanks for the lies though Microsoft.
- $69 games are too pricey? Try $95, Guitar Hero 2 is around $120. Classics-series isn't much better, around $50.

Wonder where's that amazing content that I was promised when I bought this.

Disappointing news sad.gif . After seeing them demo the game and announce the multiplayer beta at E3 I was really looking forward to this, ah well.

Maybe they see this as just a U.S. "hit" and don't want to spend the money on bandwidth elsewhere?

I think it's unfair though -- since you are paying for a gold membership.

It could have something to do with the location of the beta servers. I'm not exactly sure how betas are deployed on the production XBL network.

Because of course, no one outside of the US will be playing this game online...

LOL @ Everyone who's feelings are hurt

Its a BETA test, relax. There is no PC, PS3, and now non-US participants. Ever think that maybe they have good reason to do so ?

Like maybe they are just focusing on netcode and want to keep a tight control group? So, no other hardware and no high latency gamers.

No one ever said YOU were invited and then took that away, you just assumed you would be invited, and it turns out your not. So just chill,

First no price drop in the uk and now this... I'm really losing faith in MS and their gaming system!

Does this include the PC beta?
