The launch times (or launch window) for the upcoming open/public Battlefield 3 beta.
I can't wait!
FYI 2 all if you search battlefield in the ps store and scroll down you will see the beta but atleast in canada you cant access it usa can.Thought i pass along the information
i searched Battlefield on my US Account - found the Beta, but it said: "Can't be accessed on your account" lame
^^ I got that about an hour ago (12 noon EST) Now, my PS Store won't open - says it's "undergoing maintenance" I have it for 360 - my first impressions are "wow, I hope these are alpha graphics" You can be creeping up to a bush, and it'll just disappear, then reappear a few seconds later... And there also seems to be a weird glitch where you can go prone in just a few "right spots" and completely disappear out of the visible map, but still be able to shoot - and in the view of your killer, he just appears UNDER the map. The gameplay is good - I've heard a few times already "this definitely is a battlefield game" or some variant of it. The game is fun, the graphics are "meh" and some people are already level 20+... even with 2 extra days, that's ridiculous.
played it....the beta isn't even on MW2's graphical level. Very fun though. It's just another shooter on the market trying to be recognized . Can't wait til around march, I'll get this around 20$.
Its out now on PS3 in the uk and Australian store! Go go go!
Man this game is OVER HYPEEEEE there's nothing speical about it.
Yeah, who wouldn't be excited for the "Return" of the real battlefield? But lets face some facts, it looks better then other console and PC shooters, it sounds better then other shooters, it has amazing animations and I feel like my body actually weighs something. The shooting is satisfying and I'm sure the vehicle controls are still excellent. So I guess with all that being said, we should be REALLY hard on the people getting hyped about the new CoD. What has changed in 8 years?
@ Killuminati I would feel the same way based on the Open BETA ..but I KNOW better The Beta has ZERO vehicles..and is one of the smaller maps. Also it is a BETA so its gonna have issues. Give the FULL retail version a rent and some time and if you dont like it then...cool. Just dont base BF on this limited MA they chose for the BETA :)
I played the BF3 beta on the 360. Seems a little buggy. Sounds are missing. Graphical glitches. Not a bad game but unpolished. Should be since it is a beta. Looks just like Battlefield 2.
playing it on the PS3 right now, and i can say one thing the graphics are terrible...it feels like bfbc2 or heck cant remember bfbc2 looking bad as this, the trees are terrible, the grass and textures are a pixalated mess, the player models are awful, and dissapointing the destruction seems toned down. maybe judging too early and this is what i get from playing the beta. Graphics are ps2 quality. dice dissapointing on consoles. Killzone 3 just destorys it to pieces, and people wont even be able to run the game on PC with that sort of graphics dice advertised.
PS2? You might want to go back and fire up your PS2 and then come back and retrack that "Graphics are PS2 Quality" Statement K3...ok...a small game with limited player numbers and small ass maps. No vehicles...no strategie. give me a break.
@jcaashby Have you played it? The graphics aren't much better than Bad Company 1. I know it's in Beta, but still - it doesn't look as good as BFBC2... which it totally should, and I hope it will be on release day. I'll probably play it regardless, but I just hope that the graphical code for this beta is very old.
Just tried it on 360. It's no PS2 game, but to be honest, most FPS that came out in the last 12 months looked better than that. I know it's alpha and all, but so far, I'm not impressed.
I think you're all insane if you think this game looks worse than BC2. Go back and pop in BC2, it was a jaggy mess. Not too mention the beta builds generally are older builds. Do you really think they are going to release the final game with people falling through the ground? Doubt it. And they have already said there are graphical elements missing from the beta as well. Personally I think turning a corner and being blinded by a flashlight is gorgeous. Even on the lessened console versions.
If only I wasn't running the beta on two different machines, both with a mixture of Ultra and High settings. Then your theory about no one having a PC who could run the game would be semi accurate. It's not even high end hardware. You should also try playing some PS2 shooters, you either never have or you have some memory issues.
ive been waiting for this for months cant wait to try it!!
I had an ad link to play Battlefied 3 on Live yesterday. Clicked on it and it showed -1 points to buy. Clicked on the buy option and it said I didn't have enough points and showed like 4 billion points plus to get it, then it had the little do you want to add points at the bottom. Wasn't sure I had enough in my bank to add that many points. ha
I missplaced my early key i wanna play too ; (
Hopefully we won't see a delay like with the 48hrs early access. Some who had "early access" still haven't gotten their keys -- me included :(
It's worth the wait. Trust me. http://www.youtube.com/watc...

Apparently the open BF3 beta just went live on Xbox 360 according to a battlefieldo.com tweet http://twitter.com/#!/battl... "The 360 marketplace is still updating, be patient young #BF3 Beta Padawans :)"
"Australia (AEST): 11 PM – 13 PM" 13 PM?
Didn't you hear? Australia has shattered the space time continuum.
At first I thought you were serious... Then I remembered my username...
Yeah, they're on Neutrino Standard Time - it's faster than light, so they needed to add an extra hour.
