I've bought games from them before but no pre orders... Ive bought a couple origin games... Crysis 2, NFS shift... and the games came within 1 hour and I was playing them within 30mis (very HS internet, like 18mbs)

I've seen some sites say they'll try and send the keys the day before, and some on the day of release. Either way its a good deal to me.

Yea it is but i still perfer the keys early instead of a day before the release cuz how else can anyone play the beta? Mind you, i already have access cuz i'm a previous MOH old owner. Back to the moot point, just a nice find however. How fast do these keys get sent to you?

I just read that Smoke Grenades will be incorporated into the game, and will be quite effective for covering troop movements and the like.

I think it would be very interesting if you could pop a different color of smoke to signal team mate vehicles and aircraft. Imagine being over powered by enemies in a building, tossing a yellow smoke grenade toward it and then retreating to hear the fireworks.

Certainly you could probably just tell the air craft to attack at the smoke, whether it was grey or yellow, but I like the idea of being able to signal things with a different color of smoke.

That's in california dude. You go there and do a tournement. Not online. I'm sure of it. Besides i have a theory though, Beta for 48 hours users would be on this tuesday or next tuesday next week.

Just remember it takes 2 to 3 weeks for Microsoft and Sony to approve the beta. Which is why we haven't heard anything yet but it's getting VERY close. I can feel it already.

So what if it's in California. What difference does it make if it was an office somewhere else?

Doesn't make much sense that only this specific GAMESPOT office, in the U.S. no less, would have exclusive access to some unknown BF3 "thing" to play a tournament on just because they feel like it. Unless you know, it happens to be the Beta *coughdemocough*.

I know how long it takes, it's been floating around. Microsoft is apparently ready so that means they had to have started sometime earlier this month with the testing. Even if they aren't ready the word of it is enough to know they started awhile ago.

Got to think though. If it starts Tuesday for everyone then it would have already started for MoH/Origin pre orders. So probably not.

Unless consoles do updates on Thursdays then the headstart could possible start Tuesday.

Possible start dates imo (headstart wise):

Tuesday
Thursday
Saturday

If not God help us all.

Also have to take into account this mysterious tournament. How long is this Beta going to actually be?

How long was the BC2 beta/demo? I can't remember.
