Windows 7: Battlefield 3 Official Thread

Big heads up on this one,

Warning: fake BF3 beta sites popping up - Battlefield 3

Quote:
We previously reported on a site which was trying to sell fake Battlefield 3 beta keys, whose owner had run other BF3 beta key sites. EA tried to take the site down with a DMCA claim that it was using BF3 artwork without authorization, but that didn’t hold up, mainly because the artwork is freely available (and is used by BF3blog, among other sites). Our friends over at Battlefieldo.com did some digging and found several new sites that have been popping up around the web, all offering Battlefield 3 “beta keys”, including:
  • battlefield3cracked.com
  • battlefield3betafree.info
  • bf3-beta.com
  • bf3beta.com
  • bf3beta.co.cc
  • battlefield3betakeygenerator.blogspot.com
  • EA-Battlefield3.com
  • dice.bf3beta.net.tc
  • battlefield3-beta.net
All the sites feature one scam or another, trying to trick you into giving up your email address, or worse. A select few are selling direct access to BF3 beta keys, while others are offering users to download a BF3 beta key generator. And we imagine, a ton of spyware bundled with it.
Hope no one here falls (or worse, already fallen) for this.

I want to play the game but I will wait for the FREE SP DEMO to make my decision on whether I will purchase the game or not.

I would not hold my breath if I were you. Demo's were a 90's thing...

The open beta will be for the MP.

No SP demo/beta will be released.

There you have it, another game that I will have to wait to purchase either from the bargain bin or from someone who bought it cos they told him it was awesome and now he does not want it... I usually pay almost half when I buy them pre-own.

For anyone interested and didn't get an invite to the Alpha go here,

BATTLEFIELD 3 ALPHA TRIAL

to try and register.

Didn't work for me yesterday, kept getting "WE'RE SORRY - YOU DON'T MEET THE CRITERIA TO ENTER THIS SITE.". Tried again today and got in. And yes you will have to install EA's new Origin to download/install/play if accepted.
