    This is great but I hope that maybe they can still fix the problems from the latest patch of Dark Souls for PS3 perhaps works on a 1.10 patch.

    Ignoring the unlikelihood of me getting into the beta, Do I try to get a taste of the game now or wait till next year to experience the whole game fresh.
