I hate the bundling of “betas” within commercial products. Especially, when I don’t want the commercial product, but I desperately want the beta. It’s fine if you bundle the beta invite with a pre-order, but not with a game that may not be very good.
Capcom is doing just that.
They are bundling Super Street Fighter 2 Turbo: HD Remix’s eight week beta with the Commando 3 — not Bionic Commando, but Commando 3. Commando 3 looks alright, but it hasn’t ignited any sparks of nostalgia yet. SSF2T:HDR on the other hand, is looking marvelous. The beta will be exclusive to XBOX Live! Arcade and available to only Gold members.
I guess that counts me out. The final version is coming to both XBLA and PSN.
