Demand for Eurogamer’s UK SOCOM: Confrontation beta key giveaway was furious today, with the site buckling under pressure but delivering its 6,000 keys in 1 hour 17 minutes.

The site’s recovered now, but if you were thinking of hopping on to the beta and weren’t prepared for the F5 madness, tough luck.

The beta itself starts today, so if you were lucky enough to get a key you can use it instantly.

If you don’t live in the UK but you’re in other PAL territories, hit this for more info from SCEE.
