Yup. I got accepted a couple of days ago I think.
My experience went like this:
<Check email> "Oooh, a code for the MAG beta
<Redeem the code... download 260MB ish from the store.>
"Hmm. That's a bit small?"
<Run installer>... "ah, another 30something MB update to download. OK, still a bit small though?"
<Run beta app>... "Ah, 2 1/2 GB to download. That must be the actual thing itself"
<Download...download...download...download...downl oad...> "What? Still only 5%?!"
"Hmm. Just like the crappy MGO beta, this is using some sort of ultra-slow P2P method to download the actual beta itself. Awesome
"This sucks! It's taking ages, plus it can't be set to background download, so you have to leave the PS3 running for x hours with the beta's P2P app running away slowly downloading. Screw this!"
<goes to quit the download>
"Hmm. Doesn't even have a quit button, so I have to use the PS button to quit via the XMB."
<quits via XMB>
<deletes the beta>
Why on Earth is the full beta file not available on the PSN Store? [Like Uncharted 2's beta]
Why do you have to first download some stupid P2P app & then use P2P to download the beta? [Unlike Uncharted 2's beta]
I mean, the Uncharted 2 beta managed it perfectly, none of this P2P nonsense. You simply downloaded the full main thing via the Store using a redeem code, and That.Was.That.
It's not like this is by some tiny indy dev: Zipper are owned by Sony, surely Sony can give them some Store space & bandwidth for people to download the beta?
I can't be bothered...
