its just a beta, there's no need to get all worked up about it. plus oct 4th is enough time before the official release.

I personally am not worked up over the beta delay. My issue is how ubisoft absolutely failed in communicating the date change. Why did we seriously have to wait till the original date announced in a press release to find out it has been changed to the 4th. There is no excuse for that at all. Saying it was reported on 1up a week ago is a BS attempt at dodging the issue. They screwed up and need to step up and admit it.

And cause I feel like it, I will say it again, I do not care about the date change itself. I know it was subject to change, it is the lack of notice.

Reach delayed the beta!! Blame bungie lol. But most likely that is the reason.

im actually willing to believe this is part of the reason, Reach is the power hitter for MP this month and I expect people would rather play the MP on the game they just bought (and likely all their friends bought it) as opposed to play a beta for a game that doesn't come out for 2 months.

Its of course not the full reason because Halo = Xbox and ACB Beta = PS3

Be happy that you're getting the beta now, since they delayed Ghost Recon: Future Soldier into next year, the beta that we're getting for it is pushed back as well.

i think its just stupid how the beta is coming out only 6 weeks before the game does. after we're done with the beta itll only be 4 weeks. might as well just wait for the game. on another note i think it was a little deceptive of ubisoft and gamestop to advertise the beta for this date. gamestop states in their warranty that once an online code has been given you cant get a refund for the preorder. the ONLY reason i preordered from gamestop was to beta the game, i honestly dont care about the harlequin, i think the officer is cooler. huhhh...just a let down i guess http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

Lmfao... I'd rather have the beta from october 4th because it's going to be longer than the u.s one. I believe it's going to play all the way until the game is released which is BETTER than 2 weeks.

There's a chance they would because all they said so far is "Beta goes live on October 4th." No extra dates are given except for when codes will be emailed. "|Codes will be email on that morning|" Online people will get codes on 9/20/10, and must register by 9/27/10. So yeah.

Man so many people moaning about the beta now been in October, last I remember it was the GAME itself we were all paying to get, with the way half of the people are carrying on you would think itís the beta we are paying out so much money for.

^yep, well put Akasha

before, when the Beta was in September for America I bet you didn't even care Australia (and other countries) had to wait another month for it but now you have to wait... Oh no! the world's gonna end!

It's... just... a... beta...
It's... just... a... month...

Oh yes itís really dumb, I mean they donít even have a full month to wait and they are acting like a bunch a kids that have not got their own way...lol. If you ask me itís better having it this way because we all get to play the beta together.

At least we can play with the American's (as someone else said) so there will definately be more people on the servers at one time, ensuring you will be able to play!

I would probably say this was part of the issue with the US getting delayed...considering all of the problems with redeeming the codes. It would be useless to open a beta up for such a small group of people. If it was not PS3 exclusive we would probably have kept two separate betas. Not to mention you have 2 major releases in the the next week: Reach and Civ 5. Not much out after that until Oct 26 when The Force Unleashed 2 releases. Coincidence??

I can wait - Beta is just a cool perk for me. Gonna be glad to have a lot of players on the server now EMEA etc are getting beta at same time as US. Gonna be Assassination Carnage!!!

to all the people complaining about people complaining, you obviously don't get it. we don't care that we have to wait, we're just upset that ubisoft gave no warning whatsoever. everyone sat at their computers waiting to receive their code, and then THE DAY OF the start of the beta, they tell us it's not coming. it's bad business plain and simple.

I do have to agree that I think sometimes Ubi is in outer space in relation to its customer(fan) base.

You're right that there seems to have been some confusion among the media and other sources over the start date, we are aware of that and the subsequent frustration. Be assured Mr Shade and I among others are trying to find out what happened to prevent a repeat in the future.

Craaaaaaazy idea but... do you reckon that the delay is caused by the fact that the PSN will be overloaded with Move uptakers downloading demo's etc that it was decided to delay it so that people could focus on the beta (feedback etc) rather than have split attention?

Just a theory, but it is something that I am thankful for... can get my move on and then focus on beta after 2 weeks of that.
