Ms. ‘Splosion Man is Gettin’ Some Beta Lovin’

I love the fact that I used three apostrophes in that title.   Are you so excited for the upcoming release of Ms. ‘Splosion Man that you just can’t wait?  Well you may not have to if you are one of the lucky 10,000 gamers that will get early access to the game’s multiplayer mode.

Twisted Pixel announced on their blog that they are holding a public access limited to 10,000 people and will be held from June 6th – 26th.  In order to enter you must meet the following requirements;

  • Be one of the 10,000 registrants chosen to participate.
  • Own a retail Xbox 360 console with a hard drive.
  • Have an Xbox LIVE Gold Membership.
  • Have broadband Internet access at home.
  • Be willing to play the early access with others in the program if they know them or not.
  • Have time to play with numerous online gamers, and time to provide copious feedback.

If you think you have what it takes to take Ms. ‘Splosion Man for a ride around the block, then you can enter here.

It’s actually an interesting idea to think that an XBLA title will be holding a beta when usually that is seen for $50-$60 retail releases, such as the recent Gears of War 3 beta.  It shows how much the downloadable title environment has changed over the years.  Titles that were once just considered ‘indie games’ are now getting a full fledged development with many of the heavy hitters in the industry jumping into the ring to produce their own rings.  As a business perspective it makes sense since I would assume the costs are dramatically less but the pay-off can be just as big.  And Twisted Pixel has the track record to make it work.
