UFC Undisputed 3 Beta Opening on PS3; Demo Coming Next Week

Posted January 19th, 2012 at 4:15 pm

Earlier today THQ opened up the registration process to take part in the PS3 version of the UFC Undisputed 3 beta which had previously been held for about a week on the Xbox 360 in late December. While it won’t be active to play until tomorrow grabbing the code now will ensure access once it goes live – when it does it will also be reactivated for those who participated in the earlier 360 run. Additionally official word has come down that the demo for UFC Undisputed 3 will arrive on XBL and PSN next Tuesday Jan 24. Further details on the demo have not been provided.

The UFC 3 beta will run for a limited time and will be used primarily to test the new servers and collect feedback on issues encountered. The hope would be to iron them out and have a better online experience during the release frame than that of UFC 2010 or the recent WWE 12.

Codes to download the beta are being distrubted through the official UFC Undisputed community website on this page. Registered members of the site will be eligible to obtain one but the supply is likely to run out and possibly quick. Those taking part will be agreeing to an NDA not to discuss the game publicly or post any videos or screenshots – only to direct feedback through the particular channels set up by THQ for the specific purpose of the beta.

    They release their PS3 open beta on the day the Playstation Store is down for maintenance. Lovely. Not anybody’s fault, but definitely a buzzkill when you get in, get your code, go to apply it…and realize you have to wait until tomorrow.

    Big whoop…just another beta for the same damn game you already played before. I’ve just bought the 2010 one for just a few bucks recently on Amazon. I can easily wait another year to see if this one is any better, and I’m already registered at too many damn websites as it is, so I really don’t need to have THQ starting to spam me too. I’ll pass.

      This is a way to help the game play better.  If you think this is just a rehash you have to be fucking retarded.  They spent two years making it, BUILDING ON the old physics engine and improving with beta testers and invite dates all along.

        Unless you work for THQ, you don’t know shit. 2009 and the 2010 versions aren’t hugely different either. Beat it kid.

          Or maybe he’s played it? I have and I don’t work for THQ.

          It is definitely built on the same engine so it’s only going to be so different. I’d call it a noticeable improvement over 2010 but if you already don’t like the general gameplay for some reason, this one isn’t going to change your mind.

            Sounds like Ill be waiting another year to buy it for less than 60 bucks then. Thanks buddy.

            You’re welcome. I’d still say its worth trying out the demo next week but don’t expect huge, mind blowing changes,
