Today, we’re happy to announce that the PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale Beta will kick off for PlayStation Plus members on PS3 tomorrow, October 16th and expand to everyone October 23rd through PlayStation Store! What’s more, as a special treat, PS Vita users will be able dive right into the multiplayer beta starting tomorrow – no Plus subscription required. The Beta will support Cross-Play, so PS3 and PS Vita owners will be able to fight with and against each other.

This, of course, is only a tiny fraction of what PlayStation All-Stars has to offer, but we thought you’d love the chance to try it early and see what all the buzz is about. Be sure to hop on quickly as we’ll be ending the Beta on October 30th!

Don’t worry if you get an error when connecting, the amount of users hammering the servers at this time is bound to be big with both PS3 and Vita users online. It could also be a case of people just now finding out about and downloading the beta. Please be as patient as possible.

Also, add me on PSN. :)

Ok, I got into one match.

I was…. not so good.

The controls were unresponsive (don’t know if that’s the game, or if it was just laggy). I was playing against only one person, not three others. That person kept disappearing, and the camera would zoom in on me as if I was the only one playing. Then once the match was over the win/lose screen said there were two other people there the whole time.

I guess I’ll just have to wait and see if things get better, but needless to say, this beta is rough right now.

@225 Those are mostly all just server issues from the sound of it, give it time.

I just did what you guys did and kept trying to connect. Btw when you tried to add me. most of you guys are VITA lol. Keep trying like I did. Its worth it.

To be honest guys I would wait until tomorrow (probably) Or maybe later on. I mean it is a beta (just sayin)

Give it time, everyone.

@bubby323

Yes, most likely, but it still surprises me. Considering this is not the first beta they’ve had, I expected more wrinkles to be ironed out than this.

But it’s not a big deal. It’s not like today is our only chance to play it.

Also, feel free to add me, everyone. We’ll get a good match in eventually.

@260 Your party invites keep failing when I try to connect, assuming its the server but keep trying nevertheless.

@287 The cross play features were referring to cross play matches not the beta for each system, unless you have Plus.
