Interested in being one of only 10,000 people selected to test out Killzone 3‘s new online features like the party system, access to the jetpack and exoskeleton vehicles, or the game’s “Operations” mode? You’re in luck! Sony Computer Entertainment Europe announced today that the public beta for their new, “Halo-killing” PS3 FPS would begin October 25th for a lucky 10,000 fans – the catch? You need to purchase access to Sony’s PlayStation Plus membership (or be a pre-existing member), which is only offered in 3 month or 12 month installments. Now, you may ask, “But Andrew, what if I purchase a PlayStation Plus membership and miss out on the beta?” The unfortunate answer to that question is, “Now you’re stuck with a mediocre service that promised a lot and failed to fully deliver.” On the bright side, you do get a free copy of Wipeout HD for becoming a member, which is amazing (and FYI, this is coming from someone who bought a full year’s worth of the service).
