'Call of Duty 4' public beta requires tokens

Don't get me wrong. I'm very excited for the multiplayer public beta on Xbox Live of Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare. Nonetheless, I am a bit perturbed that Activision is having us, the supportive gamer, jump through a series of hoops to play it.


UPDATE - As pointed out in the comments, this is a Beta, not a Demo. I wasn't thinking straight this morning and I was without coffee. So, I withdraw my crabbiness and fully understand that it's a multiplayer Beta. See the comments for more info.

What else must I do to get the beta?

Let's see if I can summarize the process. First, you must register an account. Then, after a few emails confirming your account, you can get to the public beta section of the site where there is a lengthy set of FAQs for your perusal and this message:

To be eligible for a token-you must be 18 years of age or older, punctual and capable of answering three trivia questions correctly. Yes, punctual. To be fair, we're doling out the tokens on a first come first serve basis.

Okay, so once you get earn a token, you enter it into the Redeem Code section of Xbox Live Marketplace and then you can finally download the beta.

As I'm writing this I'm getting more annoyed. Why not just have the demo available on Xbox Live like every other game? Why make the most loyal gamers jump through the most hoops to get the beta? Shouldn't we be rewarded with an easy, registration and trivia-free demo?

Seriously, any Xbox Live demo that has a website full of FAQs on how to get the demo is just wrong. I think I'll just play BioShock again.

Jeez...you're such a frikin' crab. Relax. Some people like jumping through the hoops. Yeah, I get your point, but there's no need for such hostility.

I think what's really going on is you were expecting to play it this morning, after CharlieOscarDelta.com was down all last night, and, since the site only has these new updates, you're pissed.

Grr!




"Why not just have the demo available on Xbox Live like every other game?"

Because it's not a demo, it's a beta... The point of the beta is to find bugs not to promote the game.




WE DEMAND AN APOLOGY JEREMY!?!?!

You can even use the excuse that you posted this first thing in the morning and you weren't thinking straight. Hell knows I've done it before.

APOLOGY, APOLOGY, APOLOGY!!!




Der. Yeah, for some reason I wasn't thinking of it as a Beta, just as a demo. I think the awesomeness that is the BioShock demo had me in demo mode.

Yes, I do realize it's a Beta, and thank you for pointing that out.

My earlier crabbiness is now withdrawn.

And, Allison, I apologize, to you, directly, with head hung low, and I'm begging for your forgiveness. (does that work?)




is charlieoscardelta>com down again i cant connect . can any body else ?




charlieoscardelta.com is working for me right now. Although, the maintenance of yesterday doesn't seem to have done anything with the Beta as it's still "coming soon".
