Call of Duty Black Ops Beta: Xbox 360 Only, Start Time Revealed?

We have some important news for Xbox 360 owners looking to pick up the next installment in the super popular Call of Duty franchise, as it has been rumored that sign-ups for the multiplayer beta for Black Ops will begin this week.

That is according to this report from COD7BlackOps.com, who have captured a screenshot of Google News which shows that a beta is on the way – despite the fact that it hasn’t been announced by Treyarch – remind you of something?

They report that the beta will be exclusive to the Xbox 360, and that sign-ups will begin on Wednesday 1st September. There is some truth to this, since we already know that Treyarch will be unveiling multiplayer mode on Wednesday – we just hadn’t heard anything related to a beta before.

It is safe to say that Black Ops will be the most played game over the holiday period, so a beta would be pretty logical for Treyarch. It is just a shame that it will be exclusive to one console again.

What are your thoughts on this? Xbox 360 owners must be delighted with the news. Don’t forget about our ongoing Killstreaks and Weapons thread here.

This shit is all gay, why do people argue over what system is better? Just because of one beta doesnt mean xbox is better, and just because you dont have to pay for PS3 doesnt mean its better, o wait it does. let me rephrase that, just because you have to pay for xbox doesnt make it worse, o wait that does to… well FUCK it! If you little pussy ass virgens want to fight over video games, then fine. I dont give a fuck if you guys waste your lives on video games and never know what living is,… Read more »

Wow xbox fanboys must really have nothing better to do if they're bitching and think they're superior just because of a beta which we don't even know much about, and could still be multi-platform.

The black ops beta should be on Xbox 360. God knows that everyone who owns a 360 is much more of a hardcore gamer. plus wtf is the assassin's creed beta doing on the ps3 only?? Assassin's creed is such a 360 game. Of course sony tried to make another game an exclusive, but failed. Call me an Xbox fanboy while you're at it.

Dumb ass. This is just a pice of information 4 u guys. In real bussines when u know that your competitor have a better product and it's starting to sell more hardware than u, one of the many strategy one should do is try to get an exclusive for a product. That's what microsoft is doing, they r expendigs lots of money buying the exclusive to reach an amount of sales. Sony is in no need for that… So stop thinking that Xbox is better, this is a wake up call. " it is not".

what idiot would would have a PS3? Xbox 360 is far superior mutliplayer gaming than a PS3.

I have several friends all prestige 10 on PS3, they are all purchasing Xbox 360 for black ops and moving over as they say not as good, multiplayer game play problems & everyone plays on xbox.

PS3 sucks!!!!!! Poor mans COD

I would love a PS3, and I own an Xbox 360. I love the Xbox and it's exclusives but sometimes I'd just like to relax and play on a PS3, because I've played on a PS3 before, and the 360 just seems more competitive to me, which is a good thing. It makes me a better player. And honestly, it is a GAME! Grow up, go outside, notice the thing called the sun, and when you're done, that's when you should come in and relax, not fight over which gaming console, which by the way, will get you nowhere in… Read more »

the only reason xbox get MOST of the exclusives is because they all feel sorry for you. You all buy xbox's because of one small problem…. you cant afford a ps3. Xbox are a poor mans console.
I couldnt give a flying F*** about the beta. At the end of the day its only another game that is gonna get hacked to sh** and ruined by people that cant play a game properly

Wow idiots, there is no public beta. Btw how much of a fanboy are you bringing halo in to talk about COD. In Halo’s defence atleast it isnt broken like COD and in xbox’s defence atleast they put out exclusives to combat the activision giant. Where are the ps3 exclusives? Hiding from COD because they are too shitty to stand out. Jeez people have hollow arguememts

Legit? 360 is hardly legit with the amount of piracy on it. BTW i am a PS3 user and tbh i would rather all you 360 fanboys didn't give a **** about the PS3. Maybe then we could get rid of those awful 8.5 GB multiplatform games and start getting the 50GB games rolling in.
But then it would be the other way around and unfair to 360 gamers. Its one rule for 360 and another for PS3 currently.

Ok every one stop being selfish halo might be on Psn cause bimbos isn’t with Microsoft anymore. And who cares if it started on pc it was still part of mircosoft

xbox gets everything first because microsoft pays money for the exclusivity. period. Ps3 is better because it's not a pain in the ass to have your credit card deleted from your account, just try it all you xbox users, it's almost impossible. And xbox is full of faggy hackers. You have to pay for xbox live, ps3 is free. It's obvious which is better.

I feel the same as the guy above me. Stop fighting over this for no reason.. I understand that xbox gets it first because we have to pay monthly, but still, dont need to get all pissed off at Treyarch about it..

That's bullshit, seeing as how MW2 turned on PS3 AND 360, broken and full of noobs little dicks, what's there to stop that happening? So why only 360 when theirs problems on both consoles, we should get to see if this games any better than the recent failure…

DO any of you know that xbox has to pay for all call of duty exclusives? They have a contract, so thats why they have been getting all the Map packs first etc. etc.

You are such a ****. Aww you think your legit. Just using words like that makes you a geeky fanboy. Just growup and stop acting like the 360 is better than God. Both consoles have their downsides and many enjoy the PS3 more than te 360. Some even decided to buy a PS3 when they found they were let down by their 360.

I am starting to honestly care less if the "Full Multiplayer Release" is a BETA. I think it is awesome if they do release one but i hope it will be for all platforms. Why can't we all play them at the same time? Personally i play the 360 but just let everyone play.

will be beta tester

its so funny to see ps3 fanboys get worked up now then when the beta does get released as an xbox 360 exclusive they make a new rant…

No Xbox have a deal with Activision which runs out in 2012. That's why Xbox get DLC first.

PS3 could be hacked with a dongle. Black Ops has a team set up to stop any hackers.

you all are retarded!!!!!!! This article isn't legit, there could still be a ps3 beta, there might not even be a beta at all. Besides ps3 got the MOH Beta. and who cares plus ps3 is lagit retard. And you know why xbox gets everything before ps3 because it came out first, therefor more people own an xbox so they release everything to xbox first to make more money, see how that works retards?

ps3 players shouldn't be annoyed at losing out as they are still actually getting the game it started out as an xbox 360 franchise and we're giving you the game but obviously giving priority to the xbox 360 gamers ps3 gamers should be happy if we can hand over call of duty who knows maybe next you will have some halo games.
