The trouble with galatic beta testing is that it takes so damn long. Long enough to delay the release of Star Wars: Galaxies anyway. Gamespot says it definitely won't make the April 15th ship date, but it doesn't give a revised date.

Of course it wouldn't be a big time game if the development cycle wasn't altered at least 10 times, and this is something like alteration number 7 for Galaxies, so they're right on track.

Anarchy Online has been keeping me interested for nearly two years now. Can't wait to try SWG though. Glad they're not making the same mistake as AO did and realeasing a grossly unfinshed product.

Not only that they've chopped out of bunch of features to make sure they get everything they can release worked out. The first release won't include player-owned cities, vehicles, or Dark Jedi.

It seems to me that most games that get released late are often buggy crap. The later the release the worse the game/bugs: B&W, SMAC, MoO3, NWN.
