Open Beta, the new Demo

...And it was all the rage for video gamers, in the '90s, as they would get hold of a new game demos on a CD. ... Beta version of a game is only the first working version of the game which has all of it's content attached. ... Today's closed and open betas are short in duration, they give the players just enough time to try out the game but don't allow them the lose the all important WOW factor.
