From the videos and everything I've read it looks freaking amazing, being able to destroy the environment and the fluidity of vehicles/infantry working together in combat ... does it actually work in game or did they just hype it up in the videos?
That's been fixed for ages, there is a tweak to sort the hitboxes and in the latest patch they improved the hit detection by far.

I'll probably pre order from game over here in the uk, hopefully they don't just limit the beta to NA players.

As for the Gamestop pre-order beta, DICE have not confirmed that. It may still be for all pre-orders, or perhaps no pre-order required. We should get confirmation on this matter by DICE very soon.

Yes there will be a single-player campaign.

The ranking system will be similar to BF2. However, each class will also have it's own ranking system which will allow for class-specific unlocks.

Aiming is accurate.

The combat is very fluid and players working together is possible if it's a coordinated effort. Obviously if you join a public match where no one is listening or coordinating, it can easily turn into a team deathmatch style game where every man is for himself. This is the fault of the players though, not the game.

so you are saying gamestop is performing false advertisement? i dont think a company that large would lie to sell a preorder, that would be silly. Beta information email is 20 days away, if there are any changes im sure we will see them on their site or posted somewhere on internet. I have 20 days countdown for my email for beta going until someone tells me otherwise

also to note that gamestop leaked the bfbc2 beta for ps3 before EA made it official would make me believe gamstops' announcement about beta for pc would be considered good information.

No, I'm just saying don't trust everything you read from Gamestop.

They make speculative/false claims about release dates all the time. A beta announcement could be just as speculative/false.

Don't you think DICE would have announced officially that Gamestop pre-orders will have beta access? That would only drive their pre-order sales up.

And what about people like me who have pre-ordered from other sources not knowing about this? Do you think DICE would let us get shafted because we didn't pre-order from Gamestop?

Think about it.

I really can't wait for this game. I am kind of sad that my computer is just making recommended specs though . I guess it's time to get another 4870.

A EADICE Developer has already shot down the date. Gamestop ALWAYS puts incorrect/speculative release dates for games that have not received official announcement dates.

I'm also pretty sure the pre-orders at Gamestop were set up the same way for the PS3. They got beta codes for pre-ordering although it was extremely easy to get one from another site giving them away because they wanted to beta to be open.
