Starhawk private beta looking tidy..

... but what's this, talking about a private beta publicly? Think I'll lose my beta programme priviliges, or worse - face legal action?

Nope, check this out from Lightbox:

REMINDER: players in all territories are free to publicly discuss the Starhawk Private BETA, post videos, etc. We apologize for any confusion on the matter and the SONY attorneys have modified the EULA to make sure that it accomidates free and open public discussion!
Many Thanks to the SONY PlayStation Legal Team!
This is the most radically engaged PS3 beta I've been part of, the point updates are every couple of days, there is an RSS feed to share update details and balancing stats, Lightbox are pushing for active forum participation, both US and EU forums are up and running.

 The game - we've only got CTF for now, it's radically different from Warhawk, the most noticable at first being the button selections, then the build and battle elements, but as expressed in the run-up, it does feel familiar - "spiritual successor" is dead on. For a very early beta, it's super solid, seemingly lag free and stable, nice accurate long shots, grenades, close quarters - all good. Only critisism so far, looks a little lo-res, this could simply be colour selections though. Oh, and it kept me up till 1am on a work night.

 Now I've 100%'d the Saints Row 3 missions, this beta could soak up a lot of my time...

  5. Good stuff Mr Jimmy. Glad to hear the Beta is looking sharp. I didn't play much Warhawk, but I'm really looking forward to this one - the clan integration sounds excellent.
