The Dust514 closed beta began today allowing all fans who attended the Eve Fanfest event this year to play the game on PS3. All players invited to play the beta are not allowed to share their experiences anywhere but within the Dust514 beta forum.
When I asked when PSN Plus members will be allowed into the beta I got the following reply.Dust 514.org PS+ will be able to get in later on when NDA is lifted probably – so you guys can experience game without majority of glitches. PS+ subscribers count is huge, and letting everyone in at the same time is currently impossible due to technical limitations of the beta itself :) But we will post the moment dust becomes available to every PS+ member, you can count on that :)
Playstation plus is worth its price as I get lots of free games during the course of a year but the main reason i purchased my + account is to play the beta’s first. While PS3 Plus members are not alowed into the Dust514 beta just yet I feel sure we will be first in once the majority of bugs and glitches have been fixed. As CCP said “PS+ subscribers count is huge, and letting everyone in at the same time is currently impossible due to technical limitations of the beta itself” it seems they will no doubt use the PSN+ subscriber community in a test to see how the servers hold up before letting pretty much everyone in the world with a PS3 to join in.
Hope they’re ready for us :)
