I’m in the R3 beta right now and I’m LOVING it! First week was riddled with a bugs, but now its smooth as butter :D
It is so awesome, the unlocks and leveling systems are really cool. Now I REALLY cant wait until 9/6/2011. That game is going to rock (I bet AC:R will too :))

I tried the R3 Beta when I purchased Socom 4, & the Beta didn’t even work. No matches could be played online

    Maybe it was a rough start initially? Definitely may want to hop again if you haven’t lately. But remember, the Beta is to make sure all the online play is as optimized as possible for actual release. Any hiccups experienced are all part of the process for buttery smooth online play at release =) BUTTERY

Been playing the R3 Beta. it is super fun with the killstreaks. The game just feels good to be honest. I could get it for just the multiplayer honestly. Can’t wait for the full game!

    I haven’t had a chance to get in on the Beta since I couldn’t get on SOCOM 4; but I’m definitely looking forward to trying it through Plus

+ SoleAddict23 on August 17th, 2011 at 2:16 pm said:

This is exactly what Plus is and how it should be, discounted content, free content and timed or fully exclusive access to betas and demos. Not features that should be free to all PSN members.

I TREMENDOUSLY ENJOYED RESISTANCE 3 BETA! It has been a blast to play this game…

By the way, will we “expect” more of “NEW” (READ: NEW, NOT OLD!!!) Game Trials(s) during this autumn/winter seasons? I mean, unlike Infanous, Far Cry 2, etc- they were FROM LAST YEAR OR TWO OR THREE YEARS AGO! I am talking about NEW GAMES that are FRESH! Assassin’s Creed: The Revelation Game Trial, Uncharted 3 Game Trial, etc. NEW AND FRESH GAME TRIALS, PLEASE! Thanx! :-p Please do not take this VERY OR TOO PERSONAL! It’s simply what we, the true fans and true Sony/Playstation 3/Vita Loyalists are clamoring for!

For my personal gaming tastes this qualifies as a dry spell for the entire month of August. But that means I get to focus on all the games I’ve BEEN buying! Thanks for the break ^_^

I have had the R3 3 beta for a while. It is sweet. It has a few glitches, like the invisible glitch, but that is what the beta is for. It was sweet, no one could see me or shoot me. I just ran around meleying everyone.

Anyway, it is a great game and i recommend anyone with Plus to try it.

I didn’t get the Beta with Infamous 2 BTW. I got it directly from Insomniac. I love those guys.

+ captubaplayer on August 17th, 2011 at 2:27 pm said:

I love the fact that Plus not only meets their stated minimum of one ps1 classic, one psn game etc. but continues to post new free/discounted content as the month goes on. Thanks guys.

Thanks, Grace & Morgan. I just might try the Revelations beta. And I loved yesterday’s store update. Letting the regular members get Qore free is very generous, even though some of these knuckle heads won’t admit to appreciating it.

    Yeah Qore is an extremely well-produced and fun inside look at some awesome titles. Hope everyone who hasn’t checked out an episode will take the opportunity this month

As for the assassins creed beta though, now that should be interesting. ^_^

Hoping for more discounts and freebies. Still waiting for Strong Bad cool game for attractive people to go on sale like the euros. Its been a dry spell since the burnout and borderlands deals. Sony much not be wanting whats in my wallet.

That resistance3 beta was and is tons of fun! It will be nice to have more people in the beta. But assassins creed beta is a big fat Meh. Curious when there will be more exclusive avatars for people who have playstation plus. Its silly of me I know, but it was one of the main reasons I got playstation+.

    I don’t think there’s been any announcement on R3 Beta access outside of SOCOM 4 purchasers and Plus access. If that changes, the Blog will be the first place to break it; so as always, stay tuned.

@4 KevCity89 U must of quit playing it, its been patched up to 2.02 now and everything works normally now. no lag, no disconnect, nothing, just epic MP Beta gameplay!!! its awesome, its also a tease to see the 3D and move options and cant even use it —–_____—— lol but its ok.

    I don’t believe Sonic 3 was part of the Genesis Collection that was announced for PS Plus back in Feb. I believe it will end with Altered Beast, but that’s not to say that Sonic 3 won’t happen. Just don’t have any info on it at this time.

Assassins creed shoud do like uncharted. Make it for plus onli to start then open it to all of us. Or but odes in a other game. It would permite a larger adiance to give there opinion about te game. Anyway, your call playstation

Sweet. I saw a lot Resistance 3 beta gameplay because I thought i could only get it through socom 4 codes. But now all we have to do is wait til Tuesday and get it off plus. I thought i would never play the beta because i needed a code. Was a code for early access? Correct me if I’m wrong.

I’m pretty pleased by PS Plus so far, I’m new to it, subscribed this week, and things are looking good so far.

1) I’d like more FREE avatars and dynamic themes. I’m really happy to see an avatar bundle for free in September, good work, I hope there are more to come.

2) Please, when you bring us the monthly games, choose games which are both new and successful. Crash Commando isn’t bad, but it’s too old. Nearly nobody plays it now, but it’s pretty good. I would really like games like Burnout Paradise. Those heavy games that are worth playing. Oh, and please please please try to give us inFAMOUS: Festival of Blood for free, I;m a huge inFAMOUS fan and would like to take advantage of my PS Plus subscription to get something like this for free when it releases. If that isn’t possible, atleast give us a discount on first party titles you release.

3) Add more DLC packs for free. I wished I could get some free stuff for inFAMOUS 2, like the DLC packs that were released yesterday. I’d also like to see free DLC packs as soon as they release, exactly like what you did with the Killzone 3 DLC, as soon as it was released, you gave it out to us for free.

+ JKar275 on August 17th, 2011 at 4:14 pm said:

I’m glad to see the free beta access to R3 & AC:R. However, we PS+ subscribers should be getting early access to demos for upcoming games such as: Warhammer 40K: Space Marine, Deus EX: Human Revolution, White Knight Chronicles 2, X-Men: Destiny, Rage, Batman: Arkham City, Lord of the Rings: War in the North, Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim, Dragon’s Dogma, Twisted Metal, and Starhawk.

I agree with poster #40 that we should only be getting new & successful games for our free monthly games & not games like Crash Commando.

+ Kchow23 on August 17th, 2011 at 4:34 pm said:

Some more free add-on would be great specially for more recent games and newer PSN games would be great also. Kind of getting tired of the Minis… A space shooters for $2 was great, but other than that it has been going downhill rather quickly.

I loved the OMG-Z free mini! That game kept me busy for 3 days, and I finally beat it :D. Now i’m working on downloading the free 60-minute full game Far Cry® 2. I’m excited to see what this game is about since i’ve heard great things about it.

Thanks for the great content you guys roll out on the PlayStation®Store!
