Battlefield 3 Origin Preorders Include Beta Access

Following the revelation of some U.S. retail preorder bonuses for Battlefield 3, the Origin Website reveals the bonuses for preordering the military shooter sequel from EA's online service, including access to the game's open (as in closed) beta test, along with the Physical Warfare Pack, the Back to Karkand expansion, and some exclusive items for Battlefield Play4Free. Here's word on the beta and preloads through Origin:

Open Beta for Battlefield 3 (Origin Exclusive)

Players who pre-order the game from Origin will be granted early access to the Open Beta for Battlefield 3 when it goes live in September 2011.

Pre-load and Get Ready to Play at Launch

Pre-order the PC Digital version of Battlefield 3 Limited Edition through Origin to preload your game before it launches. Preloading insures means you can play the minute Battlefield 3 releases instead of waiting to install.

I rather it be integrated with steam, I have all my friends on it and I'm not wanting to move my elegance to Origin at anytime, Im very happy with steam and not wanting to move anywhere. If I have to have it running while BF3 is running then fine, after that its gonna be turned off.

What has annoyed me is they are offering extra fire power, wtf. Already they are trying to buy ppl by giving them better weapons. Thing is they are offering this at 39.99, Limited Edition on Play.com is 32.99(you get exclusive Dog tags). I rather play the game through and get them weapons as I progress than do it that way, in a way its taking part of the game away.

ps. I ordered mine since BF3 was open to be pre-ordered & paid for at 29.99 and my order has been upgraded now to the new pack which is offered at 32.99 so Im happy.
