I hope so. BC2 beta was release awhile before the full release.

I think there was a month gap in between the end of the beta and retail release. Even with that month gap they still managed to fix no bugs until 1-2months after the game was released. I'm expecting a playable but bugged BF3 for a while after release, all of the BF games that I have played have been like this.

No one ever really mentions this. How long do you think the beta will last? I feel like a good 5 days, 2 for the MoH:LE owners and then 3 more for the open beta. Imagine the amount of info they could gather in an open beta over XBL in the course of one weekend. That would be more than enough I guarantee.

Anyone know how long the BC2 beta lasted?

That's true, BC2 was a big piece of poo.

Yeah that's crazy stupid that bug. Atleast you actually get the win if you do though. Imagine the EA forum rage if you didnt. ;D

ooooh this could be good news..

http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2011-09-20-battlefield-3-beta-page-appears-vanishes

Tweets from DICE suggest the much-anticipated Battlefield 3 beta will launch this week.

Users on Battlefieldo spotted a new domain, http://bf3beta.battlefield.com, for beta code redemption. Screenshots were taken before the website was taken offline.

Battlefieldo also spotted a page where managers at shop GameStop could gain early access to the beta. This has also been taken offline.

Battlefieldo also points out that DICE developers have Tweeted to say this week will be particularly exciting. Yesterday Global Battlefield Community Manager at DICE Daniel Matros Tweeted: "This week is going to be off the hook #BF3"

When quizzed on the Battlefield 3 beta by Eurogamer, DICE general manager Karl Magnus Troedsson said it'll launch "hopefully very, very soon".

"There's a couple of last things that we need to sort out before we can announced the actual date, but it's going to happen in September, so stay tuned. We don't have the official date yet but we are equally eager to get it out there as well."

He confirmed the "ambition" is to launch the Battlefield 3 beta simultaneously across the PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

"It's going to be multiplayer," he continued, "but I don't believe we've said exactly what it will be, and I'll save that for the real announcement coming out. But it's going to be multiplayer."

not saying gears 3 is a contender... but maybe they should've given it a little bit of more time.
