A true beta test you have to be with a company. In fact its the very first thing your stuck doing when you jump in the industry. It sucks lol. Your stuck playing the same levels, same glitchy aspects, un finished terds that they throw at you haha. And you have to keep doing it searching every creavous for a glitch.

Beta test that your probably thinking of, basically getting a game early. Usually games have sign up sheets, most PC games do this. you find it, sign up, and hope you get in. Alot of them are random. Most PS3 ones are random, you sign up for some, but they randomly send them out from the PlayStation site. EA sends out ones for their games through their sites email list etc...Alot of it is random.

As far as i know there is no specific group or anything you can join to be actual beta testers. Like sign up and we send you beta's. If there is one id love to join it.

is there a high chance of someone being selected
since I have an EA account, does that mean I have a chance to beta test their games?

Just go to your favorite gaming sites and find names of some of the people. Or search EA, Naughty Dog, Insomniac in twitter and the company twitters pop up. Note taht thousands of people follow them so its hard to win things.

However a good way into beta's is to be active in the companies respective communities. For example I get alot of Insomniac stuff because Im active in Insomniac forums.

I think I might have gotten into the Command and Conquer 4 beta, I have an account on Gamespot and they sent me this:
http://www.gamespot.com/test/command...4/?tag=nl.e573
EDIT:never mind this, only people who pay for their accounts can get into the beta, since my account is a free account, I can't get in the beta, I guess I should have known that
theres always other betas to be s part of

I hate IGN and Gamespots pay things...free members get shafted on everything. Im surprised we can watch decent quality E3 live feeds to be honest. I dontthink you can even go to some of the community areas on IGN without paying right?

yeah, I think u are right but I don't go on IGN that much I also hate sites that have pay accounts...the people who use the free accounts do get "shafted" as u say, thats one reason why I don't go on IGN that much
