On Playstation 3, the beta will appear automatically on the PSN store. On Xbox 360, it will automatically appear on Xbox Live marketplace. On PC, it will automatically appear in Origin's demo page.

EA's Origin (Steam wannabe) will be required on PC but not consoles.

Any stats you gain while playing the Beta will NOT carry over to the retail game, you will be able to keep your soldier name, though.

That said, omfgexcited. I hope it runs at least better than the MOH beta.
Mmmm, this post is like crack for me!

In that case, my mind is made up on which platform I will purchase first - Xbox360..... but the beta I will look for on PC.
Why do you hate Steam?

The last Steam release I purchased was my LAST. I paid $60 for COD Black Ops, hated it, couldn't stand it, same ole bullcrap I've seen, other than MW2, from Call of Duty since it began. I was more than pissed once I saw it required me to install Steam... proprietary bullshit, that's it, that's all, to me, personally, just my opinion.... can't stand it. Why should I have to install something I don't want just to run a game? in all fairness, doesn't seem fair to me, and have been dealing with it for years.

Edit - I mean, come on, the program starts up upon PC startup... What? LoL, that's just silly, to say the least. Forums and websites have long since been available for gamers...we don't need an app to control it, and if so it should be our choice whether we run it or not.

Teaser is right! Damn that was short - I got Origin install last night in preparation for the "beta" I wonder how long it will take for my damn pre-order to ship, as they ship on release date, not ahead of time...
