Why is Modern Warfare 2 beta first on PlayStation?
Although Microsoft is in the process of acquiring Activision Blizzard, the deal is not over yet, so Sony’s marketing deal with Call of Duty is still in place – meaning the Modern Warfare 2 beta will hit PlayStation first.
With this deal, PlayStation players had early access to alpha and beta versions, exclusive modes, more slot machines to create a class, and free cosmetics in Combat Packs. Activision confirmed on June 8 that PlayStation players will receive the Modern Warfare 2 beta at least five days earlier than any other platform.
Whether Xbox players will receive similar benefits after the takeover remains to be seen, but reports indicate that the deal with PlayStation will be maintained for the next few CoD games.
