[Update: It's over! All codes have been given out!]
Journey is the next exclusive PlayStation 3 title from the talented folks over at thatgamecompany. With Journey, they're trying something different with the online component as there is no way to chat, no matchmaking and you won't even see PSN IDs. You are limited in the way you can communicate with other players you come across in your adventure and it's totally up to you if you even want to work with others.
It's an odd concept, but it's one you yourself can check out by grabbing a beta code right here (North America only). This beta is extremely limited and the only other way you can get in is through the PlayStation Blog and PlayStation Plus subscribers who were one of the earliest adopters of thatgamecompany's first game, Flower.
The beta runs through July 12 giving you plenty of time to experience the game that easily blew my mind when I played it. If you're able to get in to the beta, we'd love to hear your thoughts about it over to our Community Blogs. Write something up and maybe we'll even promote your blog to the front page!
