no prob. for me it first started when i was at my old college, we had a bandwidth limit and online games were banned (yea i know, how stupid can you get) so i played the singleplayer of all the games i had (i've beaten CoD 4 over 20 times), and eventually when i got home i'd play the mp; so now i just play the SP then the MP..

i know this has probably been posted her before, but I wanted to point something out that might hint to a possible beta date.
from this article: http://bf3blog.com/2011/08/battlefie...-pax-gamefest/

Quote:
GameFest, September 16, Birmingham, United Kingdom
I have a feeling the beta will be available on saturday the 17th. For 2 days, and then the beta will open for everyone on monday the 19th.
Think about it; if they release the beta before this day, who's going to go stand in a 9 hour long line to play a 20 minute game when they can just stay at home, take 20 minutes to download it and play it for 9 hours?

then there is also this little tidbit at the end of the article;
Quote:
There’s only one remaining video game event left on the calendar: Tokyo Game Show, which is one of the largest and will be held on September 17 – 19. It is unknown whether EA will be showing off Battlefield 3 at TGS, but we expect some sort of BF3 presence, considering the size and importance of TGS.
considering bf3 isn't confirmed for the TGS, it could be that they aren't putting much emphesis on the marketing there. Or the beta could be out the 19th, at the end of TGS.

Either way, I'm expecting a 16th-19th beta date. Anything sooner will be a pleasant surprise, anything later will be disappointing.

what? the game itself isn't being released until oct. 25th. I think thats common knowledge by now... I'm talking about the beta.
I think we can at least expect an announcement for a beta date at either one of these shows. but more likely then not the beta will release on one of these days. It's mid september and it's a great place to get the big message out. It's better publicity.

Yes you are. But everyone is in the beta because it will be a public beta. If you pre-ordered, you get to play 48 hours before the public beta goes live. Kinda feel jipped, but that's what the poor people who bought MOH get as well

that is exactly my point.

some people say sept 11, others say whatever else, the point is there will ALWAYS be something that you or anyone else for that matter thinks is important enough that the beta date MUST be after it. it's just like asking "can my rig run BF3 on max settings" no one knows, it's all hearsay and guesswork merely something to pass the time until the actual announcement

No need to tell me exactly what I already know. I was just adding my speculation. This is what makes sense to me. Big game show for a big announcement.
