This was in the B3ta newsletter this week|
And its probably better than the game is going to be.

|I'd never seen that "Janice it hurts" video before! Jesus. That kid nearly flies out of the slingshot!|
|Kotaku have got a list of blur beta codes on their site. I think I just managed to bag one.|
|Stupid stupid stupid website. Can't redeem a code cos apparently an account already exists for both of my email addresses. Which is impossible.|
|Cheers! Got one too. Looking forward to it with apprehension.|
|Yeah. Cheers. Free 48hr live code comes with it fwiw (erm 21.9p?).|
|Get in! Cheers for the bump, McGeeza )|
|Just got an email from FilePlanet giving codes to standard (non-paying members) - woop!|
|It's a lorra fun. I will be waiting to wreck you!|
You dare to strike Scurrcules!?
Posted this in the comments thread for the hands-on, but has anyone sucessfully plugged their beta code (from giantbomb and other places) into blurgame.com/beta?|
I'm getting errors out of my arse.
|My Fileplanet code worked first time.|
Details about the beta:|
4 circuits (Barcelona Gracia, Tokyo Shutoko, Amboy and Long Beach Docks)
14 vehicles from 4 different classes
8 Power Ups
Access to Twitter via the game interface
Access to the Beta should take up till the game's release (May 28).
Gave up trying yesterday signing up for the beta with all the errors etc I was getting on the Blur website. |
But to those who have it, is it any good? Looking at some of the recent videos, this has gone from something that looked kind of meh, to something looking quite awesome!

I just watched the GiantBomb quicklook, and I'm unsure about how I really feel about the game. I don't like the idea of having power ups, it looks very much like Wipeout and it just seems so out of place.|
But the multiplayer/social aspects look great. It's like having one giant race with lots of people, but your scored under different criteria, not just for what posistion you come in.. like how well you drive, or how fast you move. Even seems like there are cone challenges and gate trials that can be activated mid race.
If this was just PGR5, I'd have been very excited.
But some kind of PGR/Wipeout/Mario Kart hybrid? I'll see how i feel about the beta..
|It has a Hardcore MP mode, that removes all the weapons and shizzle.|
Been having fun with this. |
"But some kind of PGR/Wipeout/Mario Kart hybrid?" Pretty much sums it up.
Mostly yanks in the beta though it would seem, not many peeps on this morning.
|played the beta for a while yesterday and today, Split Second at the expo was more fun|
How? It doesn't get released til the 8th...
|Danke schon; Ich hab meine key geschnappt|

|Hmm well that's good going my code has apparently 'already been used'|
Speak the truth hussy!
|Got mine. Will try tonight.|
"Duffman the grey is thrusting in the direction of the problem! Oh, yeah!"
I got that too :\
