PS4 beta scam websites are fake, Sony warns

Tuesday, 26th March 2013 15:40 GMT By Dave Cook

PS4 beta websites have been popping up all over the shop since Sony revealed the console last month. The company has issued a reminder that all of these sites are fake and should be avoided at all costs.

Before some of you start moaning about how ‘dumb’ people have to be to fall for these, remember that not everyone who plays games is as technically proficient or as ‘net-smart’ as you or I. Some consideration, please.

Sony tweeted this earlier:

So just stay away from them OK? Don’t give these bad bastards the pleasure of your details.

Thanks Gamespot.

    @1 It could be a PSN beta?

    @1 Xbox LIVE on the original Xbox had a Beta, Microsoft sent out headsets and stuff. It’s quite possible. Especially these days, look at the Oculas Rift.

    The old adage says ‘If it seems too good to be true, it probably is’. We are an inherently greedy species and people will always fall for the honey-pot.

    The PS3 was a beta console ;) It launched with PSN which was barely a network at the time and got hacked mid life, came with SIXAXIS controllers with no rumble that dropped Bluetooth connection randomly in games like RFOM. The PlayStation Store was slow and crap and had many revisions. You couldn’t access in-game XMB for years, Remote play was sketchy, there was no 3D, popular features got taken out like other OS, web browser was/still is crap. And then you have HOME….I’m gonna stop at that :D

    Yup the PS3 was pretty much a beta for the PS4 when you think about it ;)

    @5 I am a beta myself. When I’m launch into this world, I’m always crying. Always pooping in diapers. Growing up, fall off bike a couple times. Been mugged one time. Involved in car accidents..not to mention had revisions yearly too. Now I’m on Version 29.2. Still don’t know what terrible things can happen next though. *sigh*
