[Origin] Pre-order BF3 and Receive Early Beta Access - Page 10

post #91 of 256
This is why I never pre-order early .

I actually usually pre-order games the day (or a few days) before release lol.

Its not like you need to pre-order to actually reserve copies these days.

Unless you don't have an address to have games delivered to you.

No, it means they want you to buy the game at/before launch.

The content was going to be pre-order exclusive till people campaigned for it be available for purchase post-release (at which point, anyone who cared went and pre-ordered anyway lol).

They wouldn't have been able to get any extra cash if people hadn't campaigned for the ability to pay them that extra cash :/

You could ask the same question about other pre-orders though.

Why is free pre-order content free with a pre-order? Because its an incentive to get people to pre-order

I pre-ordered to get $8 (SGD) off. XD, and to ensure I get a copy, but yea. Like last time, I pre-ordered Portal 2, they added more incentives when it was almost release. It happened again with BF3, but for a price.

Back to Karkand is an expansion and wasn't even planned for development until late last year. It's a bonus, and won't be playable on release day, it comes after.

I need the box.
"Online orders are not billed until Product ships or Pre Load is initiated."

Taken from the Battlefield 3 store page, looks like you can pre load after all.

When I saw the Physical Warfare pack wasn't released for NA, I waited until more extras were included. And now look, Beta Access that wasn't apart of early pre-orders and the Warfare Pack. I pre-ordered now since it seems like everything possible is included for $60, anything extra would probably cost more.

The 25% OFF coupon also helped me make the decision.

Sign up at EA Gun Club, wait for e-mail (maybe 24hrs.) and your Origin Code off any Shooter will be inside.
If the original code doesn't work at checkout, use EA Customer Service Chat to get a new one.

My total was $44.99, can't beat that with Beta, Expansion and Warfare Pack.

Anyone get ripped off by steam? On their page for medal of honor they said those who purchased it would get a BF3 beta key, however now everyone is saying you had to preorder it? However on steam's page it said nothing about preordering the game just purchasing it.
