Battlefield 3 beta, September countdown

For months DICE has been telling the Battlefield community that the Battlefield 3 beta will start sometime in September. Well September starts tomorrow, which means the countdown is nearly over. At lest we all hope the wait will be over sooner then later.

Rumors have been floating around the web for weeks now stating that the beta will start around September 9th; others state it will start around September 27th. DICE Community Manger Daniel “zh1nt0” Matros continues to deny these rumors.

However, I feel that DICE will release the beta sooner then later. It makes more sense to release the beta at the beginning or mild of the month then toward the end. This gives gamers a chance to really get hands on experience with the game. When more gamers get hands on they talk, and tell everyone. Which that talk can turn into more pre-orders. (Battlefield 3, Dice, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I'm pretty sure previous battlefield fans don't need beta to justify pre-order or instant buy, although like myself everybody has some friend(s) who didn't play anything in their life besides call of duty titles.Thats where beta would come in handy for em :)

Also did anyone see the battlelog thing. When it said on battle logs website coming back on september the 1th. Does that mean 1st or 11th?

It says, "Battlelog Will Be Back In September." I don't remember seeing any dates ever. Unless at one time they did and then changed it.

3rd... Most likely early September due to time needed to react to any last minute changes or bugs found from the test before release. Remebember its a test people so report issues correctly in the battlelog.
