Sometimes, things get a little hazy. That's when we have to step in and clear the air, so we won't see e-mails that say things like, "hey, is GameStop lying to me, or what?"
If you weren't already aware, you can land a spot in the multiplayer demo (also known as a second beta test) for Uncharted 2: Among Thieves ; all you have to do is pre-order it at GameStop. If you do it online, they'll e-mail you the voucher code to gain access to the beta and if you drop your five bucks down at the store, they should physically hand you a little sticker with the code on the back. Now, this works out just fine but some stickers (or perhaps all) contain an error: it says this multiplayer beta will run between 08-19-2009 and 09-19-2009, which would mean everything kicks off today. But this has never been true; the beta/demo is scheduled to start on September 15 for those who pre-ordered, two weeks before it becomes available to the entire gaming public on September 30. The correct date is on GameStop's site and Sony will confirm it as well; don't go by that sticker. Oh, and if you were in the earlier test (via specially-marked copies of inFamous ), this does not mean you're automatically in the second test. This is a whole separate deal-io.
So this should clarify the situation. If you want to get in on the multiplayer fun a couple weeks before everyone else, just do your pre-order and wait until the 15th.

That explains it, I had tried to put the code in and just figured GameSmut screwed me. Thanks Ben!
good thing I held onto the code you gave me.
Screw demos and betas! I want my game to be a virgin when I open it.
I like what I call a pretest just to make sure I know how ridiculously amazing Uncharted 2 will be. Don't loose those codes World!
Is there a speacial edition for this game? if so whats in it?
Depends where you buy it. Amazon, BB and Gamestop will all have their own goodies. I'm looking to BB because they'll have the golden guns!
Alright thanks man, will go check it out.
i preordered my copy today and sadly as usual were not getting the limited edition and australia doesnt get access to the beta. as usual 🙁
thanks sony for supporting your loyal customers.
