The point of a beta is to find issues early and correct them. You never want your product being shown to the masses before it open to all.

By opening up footage to everyone you are literally doing the opposite of what they are going for with a closed beta.

I agree. I am not suggesting open beta. I was just commenting on the leaked footage for an open beta consideration.

Hundreds of codes are being given out. At this point, they may as well just do an open beta.

Re: Open Beta: Why Not?

This "closed beta" is more about generating hype for the game than it is feedback. Got people all over Twitter begging for codes. They've given out so many that they might as well just open it which I think it may possibly happen. This marketing tactic is working exactly how they want it. People talking about the game and dying to get their hands on it.

It works every year no matter how terrible/good the game is.

That's still a fairly small, controlled sample size. Hundreds is a small percentage of the thousands upon thousands who play the game when it releases.
