This Week’s Hot Feature:

The Rigors of Beta Testing: The Past, Present and Future - Since the earliest days of MMO gaming, beta testing has played a pivotal role in the success or failure of our persistent worlds. We've come a long way since the initial tests of Ultima Online and The Realm, but what role do our current beta tests play in the potential outcomes of unreleased titles? To answer this question, Ten Ton Hammer turned to current and former beta decision makers at Cryptic Studios, NetDevil, Sony Online Entertainment, Funcom, and Mythic Entertainment. Some of their answers - and the information they reveal - will surprise and shock you.

On top of that selection, we also asked our Ten Ton Hammer premium members for their thoughts on beta testing as well! As the first of our Ten Ton Hammer Premium Articles, we've allowed our premium members to take the first crack at reading this content, but everyone will be granted access this coming Monday (April 20, 2009).
