    Yeah, I got it working. It turns out there never was anything wrong with it. It was my case, it was shorting it out. I put some black take on the stand offs. It's working fine now. Have my 925 Oced to 3ghz, I'm afraid to bring it to 3.2 :laugh: And I tried before, it doesn't work, I click update and it says it is updated. The download is already at 99%

    I was trying to verify several tweets I saw about the early beta access being only 48 hours. They all pointed to The Origin pre-order page. I don't see where it says 48 hours anywhere, but I do see this...

    Is this new (bolded)?
    Sir B. Fannybottom and CDdude55 say thanks.

    I guess the "US" part is just because your looking at the American version. And the "PC only" thing is because your prob looking at the pc version lol. I know they will open it to everyone. Like they did with BBC2.

    Well the "open beta" will be everyone and all three platforms but this is saying early access for Origins buyers which means PC only. They will probably get to join along with the MOH LE folks.

    Hmm that would be cool but still glad I have a boxed copy coming. My first in awhile...

    Yeah, that system doesn't really have much effect on us PC players anyways, so it doesn't matter to me.

    And yeah, had some fun, but I felt bad, your team was horrible, I think most of my deaths had came from you, everyone else was just bad.

    I usually have PB issues if I do a fresh install of BC2, so when I do that I just manually update PB and thats fixed it everytime.

    Planet Battlefield got their hands on the German Origin BF3 Pre-order page, and it supposedly says early Beta access is 48 hours: "Battlefield 3 Beta: 48 Stunden vorzeitiger zugang". Go Google translate it yourself...

    ==================================================

    Also complements of Planet Battlefields Tweet: Italian gaming site @Videogameit visited DICE & went hands-on with Battlefield 3 on Playstation 3 - http://bit.ly/qkoW6K (translated)

    People who pre-ordered MoH, or order BF3 from Origin get in the BF3 beta 48 hours before everyone else. In September.

    Got both systems where they should play it well.

    a good sound card too. Can't wait.

    It's a head start in the Open beta, I don't know if those names will transfer over or not, but I wouldn't think so.

    The soldier names I set up during the BFBC2 beta carried over to the final game. Stats just got reset to zero between them.
    TheLaughingMan and 1Kurgan1 say thanks.

    Battlefieldo - Specact & first Russion soldier renders

    In the last few weeks there has been a lot of discussion about the Battlefield 3 Pre-Order benefits. First on a Swedish site, something about exclusive SPECACT multi player skins came up. It is to our knowledge that these renders are the SPECACT skins that come with most pre-order options. This is also the first time we’ve seen renders of the Russian units. Today we are supposed to hear more word on the pre-order benefits and the beta via the official battlefield blog. Stay tuned. Oh and big props to king0r for hunting these images.

    The second support looks kinda weird, but the engineer looks awesome! Good thing, that's all I play.

    Too bad you did not hear that this game will have customizable hats and clothing. In fact, 1 month after the game is released they will say the game is free but you can buy stuff from the in game store. Here is an exclusive screenshot:
