If your going to pay the full 60, why not just get it from Origin?? you get most of the perks, and early beta.

I want the box.

Plus all those Origin pre order exclusives are pretty meh IMO (I played the Alpha, so I'm not that desperate to try the Beta, which IMO will be the same map/game mode as the Alpha).

A little reasoning and deduction will bring you to the possibility that it won't just be Operation Metro.

Pre Alpha = Operation Metro Footage = OM in Alpha test

Pre Beta = Caspian Border Footage = CB in Beta with the possibility of also having OM.

You still get Physical Warfare pack with Origin pre-order. Who still lugs around physical media? Get with the times

BETA will be 64 slot / conquest / caspian border

That would be beyond awesome, but let's not forget that, while that makes sense, why would DICE spend more time on adding maps/game modes to the Alpha/Beta while so close to release-day?

I mean, If they decided to add Caspian Border to the Beta, then that would mean they would have to spend a significant amount of time watering down that map/game mode to the consoles (24 player cap, changes to the map, etc), it's a multi-platform Beta after all.

If I'm DICE, I release the Beta with just Operation Metro on Rush and get it over with, the final version is way more important.

there really cutting this beta close, wondering how long it will be open, as they have to leave time to fix the upcoming glitches and breaks. I know there will be a day 1 patch but still you figure they would want to leave themselves with enough time to work on the game.

They only call it a beta, it's actually just a demo.
If you really think they have time to make changes before the game goes gold after the beta you have to be really narrowminded
They're probably working on their first patch by now.

Printing and Shipping a game all over the world is not a 1-week task.
