Watch: Are betas beneficial for players?

It's this week's Eurogamer Show. 

The closed beta for The Division has gone live, letting players close car doors and look at digital dogs to their hearts' content. With the game so close to launch though, is the beta really a meaningful test exercise for Ubisoft, or is it simply another marketing beat?

Aoife and I sat down to address this very question (and show off my lovely new haircut) in this week's Eurogamer Show. Let me know what you think of my lovely new haircut in the comments below. Share your thoughts on video game betas too, I guess.
