    EA the only place to get a free beta key? I've been trying all day but keep getting:
    Registration failed. Please try again later


    Even though it's sending out my welcome to the newsletter email each time....

    Just played the Beta. It's a very fun game, definitely worth a pick up imo.:)

    When i played sniper for a bit, it was kind of disappointing not being able to prone tho.

    you'll get used to it. i thought i missed it when i first got in game, but now i could care less. you can still really use the destructible environments well to ambush.

    So I have been looking and looking is anything left out there or is (that you all know of) every key gone?

    Thanks

    James

    I meant the free keys because I don't get paid till next week and can't preorder yet :(
    I tried going to the site but getting the Registration Failed error as well.

    Yeah has to be a first for the BF collection. To bad. It made heavy
    machine gunning a lot deadlier and sniping of course speaks for itself.
    Hopefully the kneeling recoil won't be so bad. I haven't played it enough yet to notice.
    Some games though if you have a MG and aren't prone it is useless. DOD being the worst.

    Yep the Beta is free, you just need a Beta key and download the Beta client.

    Different ways.

    You can preorder the game on Steam and get a key, you could go to fileplanet or other game sites that are giving keys out(gamespot.com is giving some out to) and register with there to site get a key.

    The official website for BC2 is also giving out keys for the beta.

    Keep in mind you will have to register with most to all these sites to get a key. And after you get a key, you just download the BC2 beta client.

    I figure most people are out of beta keys by now. You may get lucky and find a working one, but I doubt it. It is probably best just to wait for the games release in March.

    As everyone has said, most sites are probably out of keys now. As the Beta has been going on for a while now, so it's no surprise.

    Just pre-order with Steam and download the beta. Right click to get the key and write it down. then cancel the pre-order.

    He thinks he can keep the Beta without the pre-order.

    • Cant sidestep and run ????
    • You have to wait for entire server list to load berofe being able to click your favorite ...
    • Graphics are good ... but not awesome.
    • Some little shrub are bullet proof.
    • and more, and more.

    well COD:MW2 is way better ... SRY !

    There are aspects of MW2 I like that BC2 doesn’t have and vise versa. The only semi realistic thing about MW2 is the throwing knife. Battlefield doesn’t have magic infinitely straight flying bullets from absurd distances, which I like. I don’t know how long matchmaking will be sustained in MW2 on the pc versus the dedicated servers of BC2. I do know that my friends on Xbox Live/PSN will be jumping ship the second BC2 is released. And a few friends who are PC gamers that actually bought MW2 will be buying into BC2 for that reason.

    As far as fluidity and ease of use…MW2 is a no brainer.

    But better feeling more realistic combat…I’m sorry BC2 is better.

    Don’t need to reiterate that Dedicated servers > Matchmaking

    just the fact that you copy/pasted this in both BC2 threads, makes me call shens.
    let alone the fact that your "gripes" aren't even. they are subjective, and even untrue at that!

    obvious troll is obvious
