LightBox and SCEA Santa Monica have announced that the Starhawk public beta will begin on January 17th, however, the beta will be completely open to everyone until February 21. This may sound a bit confusing, but on the 17th, if you happen to have a PSN+ account or if you were part of the early private beta and still have your file on your PS3, you’re in. If you have a voucher from the purchase of Uncharted 3, then you’re in on January 31st. If you have a regular PSN account, you will have to wait until February 21st to download the beta. Also, several gaming sites and Facebook will be giving out early beta keys. Here are the dates and links below.
