Help Us Make the Game Better
These are exciting times for Battlefield fans, and everyone at DICE! Today, we're releasing the Battlefield 4 open beta on PS3, and we want you all to join.
Simply by taking part in the beta, you'll help us test the servers, online functionality, and gameplay to make sure the PS3 launch on October 29th goes as smoothly as possible.
In the open beta, you'll be able to play both the classic Conquest mode and Domination, which you might recognize from Battlefield 3: Close Quarters (it's basically a faster and tighter version of Conquest, with more emphasis on infantry combat). The map on offer is Siege of Shanghai - you might recognize it from E3, when we first unveiled it and where the public got their very first hands-on with Battlefield 4.
Now, we want to bring that experience - complete with game-changing Levolution events like the big skyscraper collapsing or setting off car alarms - to all of our fans on PS3. It's you, the player, triggering these moments.
We're also looking to our fans to provide valuable feedback on the overall gaming experience. This is in every sense...
19w ago - Sony PlayStation Public Relations Manager Aram Jabbari revealed today that the Killzone: Mercenary MP Open Beta for PS Vita arrives in late August while the Closed Beta is live now.
To quote: We're excited to announce that the Killzone: Mercenary closed multiplayer beta (for which signups were held a short while ago and already concluded, if you're just tuning in now) is now LIVE. To those who got in, you should already have the necessary information to jump in and get going.
Note: If you received a multiplayer Beta voucher as part of the promotion via PlayStation Home, please note that your voucher is for the Open Beta in late August, not for the closed Beta launching today.
To those of you who didn't get in or are just hearing about this now, worry not: we're going to open the multiplayer beta right on up in late August - details will be coming really soon, so stay tuned.
And really, who doesn't like a good open beta? They're a bit draftier. They let in more natural light. Better for Agoraphobes and such.
Killzone: Mercenary hits shelves in North America on September 10th, 2013.

Below are the details, to quote: Pioneering PlayStation community! We've reached an exciting milestone in our development of DUST 514: the open beta. Some of you may already be familiar with the concept after having followed our dev blogs or news articles, or perhaps you have been helping us in the closed beta.
But some may be hearing about this for the first time. I would like to give you guys a quick overview on the game, and the new phase of development, the open beta.
What is DUST 514?
DUST is a PS3-exclusive triple-A free-to-play MMOFPS (massively multiplayer online first person shooter), directly set in and connected in real time with the science fiction universe of EVE Online.
What that means is that not only is DUST a full-fledged MMOFPS in its own right, with unrivaled persistence and customization, it also coexists on the same servers as its older PC sibling, EVE Online. DUST and EVE share several game systems such as mail, text and voice chat, corporations, the in-game market and more.
Not only are the players of the two games able to communicate with each other and belong to the...
