    Why didn't you get it on origins? So you can start playing on the 27th. It's the same price, err you do get a dogtag pack thou?.. what's that all about? Don't we still get soldier dog tags when we knife? If they took that away so they can put stupid pictures on the dog tags then that will suck.. :banghead:

    Yea that does suck.. We get a whole 2 days early access, but i'll take it.. hehehe I'm going to take advantage of it.. I'm going to be like, "I'm playing and your NOT! for those two days".. :roll::roll: j/k

    I wonder if I will get early access. I pre-ordered on Origin, then canceled it trying to get them to give me a free game. That was last week, but it still shows BF3 on my Origins game list.... *crosses fingers* hoping I end up getting BF3 for free! Probably won't though :/

    Get on EA chat and tell them that you Alpha tested but were never offered a free game. They simply asked me which I wanted and gave me a code to plug into Origin.

    And do yourself a favor and play through ME1 then ME2. What an awesome series!

    There was a 4 day sale as an 11th hour sale. You pre-order Battlefield 3 from Origin and you not only get the Limited Edition with all its perks, they would give you Dead Space 2 for free. I thought about canceling and re-ordering myself, but I remembered that I didn't like Dead Space 2.

    Kurgan so you canceled out of protest essentially? Have you re-ordered elsewhere then?

    Also has anyone gotten a beta email yet?

    They gave me a choice of Deadspace 2, Mass Effect 2, and BFBC2. I chose ME2.
    Pretty solid 3rd person shooter so far. Yeah I didn't like Deadspace either.

    Didn't you need Origin to be in Alpha, wouldn't they be able to check that?

    Not out of protest. Live Highway said, there was a promotion for free games. But I'm pretty sure it was Dead Space 2, Dungeon Seige 2, MOH, and something else. I own 2 of them, didn't really care about the others, but if it was for free I was going to try for it. Either way, they didn't ever show this special deal on their order page, they only let people know by an email afterwards, was like a sneak special, which is stupid.

    The deal ended before I even heard about it, since they didn't promote it. I tried EA chat, they told me the deal ended. But MW3 is soon, and they are really trying to compete, so I figured I would pull out the "I really only wanted this game for the free game as a bonus", so I said I would cancel hoping they would toss me some free game. But they didn't even flinch, was instant response saying "sure we can help you cancel". And by that point, I will not back out of a game of chicken :laugh:

    If I get it for free, sounds like I won the game, if not, I'll just order it later, no big deal.

    Just spoke with EA Suport and they said they are sending out Beta Key emails in groups. We will receive them before the Early Beta access opens. Xcrossing fingersX

    Awesome they have a FOV setting! but no FOV calculator like my soon to be released BF3 Config Utility! hehehe

    EDIT: In that picture they have FOV set to 70 for 1680x1050.. That means horizontal FOV is set to 96?.. Which makes no sense... Most users calculate that at 90, 100 and 110 degrees?.... Are they guessing 70 for FOV in that shot? or what?

    I was considering it, then I realized that was a shit idea.

    Also, regarding the graphical editing, hell yeah! And the NVIDIA drivers coming out today means this is a SOLID release!

    Yea, i'm not going to either.. If anything a day after the release but not the beta. And yea about time they give use the option to change FOV. So, far the settings look great. I could also be wrong that field my update when the resolution changes and gives you the option to manual change it. Let's hope! :toast:
