Voted hot! Purely for the beta access codes, as the game is cheaper on Amazon without the codes...

Although it doesnt say if its the limited edition that is available everywhere else??? :?
#2

LOVING THIS GAME!!!!

Burn Console Fanboy!

Battlefield originated on the PC.

Battlefield 2 = best game ever......

+ FPS are sooooooooo much better on a PC, due to responce times of using a mouse to aim and fire.

Dont get me wrong...consoles are much better for racing games etc, but certain games will always be better on the PC.

Such as: Battlefield, COD, Starcraft, Diablo, [email protected], Command & Conquer, etc

p.s I still have not got my code from Play.com.....
#8
I have my code, came this evening.
#9
Just cancelled my pre-order at Coolshop for this.

Sucks though - used 2x£1 'points' to bring my order there down to £21.50 only for the price to actually have dropped to £21.99 the next day. Still though, effectively paying an extra £5 for access to the Beta which is fine by me - im getting bored with MW2!
#10
Awesome game ! got it on the 360 also, and it looks naff on the 360, 1080p my @rse, chuffed however that my PC can handle it on max settings on true 1080p, although I have to say I am a bit rusty with the KB/M lol, still persevering :-) Loving it !!
#11
Anyone else get stung by receiving their beta code from play.com, only for it to turn out that the code is already in use?

Play.com customer support? Where?

Ohh, their phone number... The number you call to tell the Indian call center what the problem is, and then they make you feel like an idiot.

"Did you type it in exactly the same?"

"Are you typing it into the right box?"

"Did you give the key to a friend?"

"Are you sure you are typing it properly?"

In the end I lost my cool and even invented some new swear words. Play.com are a load of tripampads!
#12
Steam allows Beta acess too.

Ive been playing the PC beta and this game is awesome, don't buy unless you have a half decent PC though , RIP COD MW 2

Guys, a word of warning. I preordered 2 weeks ago and have been waiting since then for my BETA code. I emailed them several times and each time they gave me the usual bull 'we are sorry etc.' and told me to wait another 24-48 hours. I ended up cancelling my preorder 2 days ago and bought off steam. The same thing happened with the Mass Effect 2 code. I had to email them before they sent me it.

Also Play.com do not gurantee delivery for release day. I've had 2 recent titles which i had preordered (Mass Effect 2 and Stalker - Call of Pripyat) arrive the day after release.

Its really strange as in the past they've been perfect but for some reason they've been playing up the past month or so. :x

EDIT: As for the game itself it is looking awesome. I've been playing the BETA like mad on steam and it is great! R.I.P. Modern Warfare 2 indeed!!!

Amen!
I'm done with COD now. This BETA is AMAAZZZING!

Play don't charge till dispatch so if you wana pre-order then get the BETA code and then cancel the order you can do.

Can't wait for the full game. I'm rocking it with my new 5770 with DX11 at 1920x1200. I compared it to the xbox demo and the difference is insane. Xbox looks turd!

PC > Consoles, when it comes to FPS's, always!

Maybe that was my mistake. I should have phoned them instead of emailing.

What i found really strange was that people in the BETA were saying the graphics aren't all that but when i loaded it up, it was amazing! I am playing on the highest settings but even on the lowest its still very decent.

Add to that, the devs said the graphics had been dumbed down for the BETA so as to help keep the file size small and Its going to support DX11 too. The full game is going to look supreme!!!
#18
Hope they havent ruined this by using that Steam crap like MW2! And not being able to select a dedicated server etc. If i wanted that I would buy it on the Xbox 360 or PS3!
#19
Is this the Limited Edition or not though?

Are you kidding, I still play the old battl field 2 with expansion pack and its still amazing on pc compared with newer games!

No dedicated servers in Modern Warfare 2 had nothing to do with Steam. The developers deliberately removed them from the game and gave us a Xbox 360 style matchmaking system. On the otherhand the devs for Bad Company 2 have said that their game will have dedicated servers. Also the game isn't a steam exclusive which means if you buy it from anywhere other than steam you can use it without neededing to install steam.

And no play.com aren't selling the Limited Edition.

Yep it does have dedicated servers, and also a server browser but true to Dice fashion it is horribly unresponsive and very clumsy to use, but just remember how bad the bf2 server browser was when it first came out, (still pretty bad now though tbh). However dice are only allowing users to rent servers and not host their own, so it's still by means the same as the good old days of pc fps's but better than mw2's restrictions!

Fully agree, there's no comparison. Looking forward to playing this on my 5850, although DX11 support will be in BF3, not BC2 :thumbsup:
#24
Actually they recently confirmed there will be DX11 support although it probably won't be fully utilised.
#25
BEta is on Xbox live for a while now and its sweeeeeeeeeeeeet

I just dont bother with the whole pc gamming thing anymore. I spend my life in front of the pc I dont want to play my games on it as well plus all my mates are on live so no brainer....better graphics and mouse on pc and play on my own or.....

Ok it might look better on th pc, but you can pick up an xbox for £100 so what do you expect...It could be worse and play on PS3 with terrible pad that cripples your hands, no proper voice or party system and a shoddy pc / xbox port....

Interesting, that slipped past. Possibly pretty flags then :-D
It didn't make that much difference to Dirt 2 but I'm glad they're trying to do something with it.
#27
how long till the beta code turns up? I ordered last night and have only received 1 acknowledgment email :oops:
#28
The beta ends on the 25th of feb, which i think is Thursday but then the game comes out on the following Tuesday (2nd march)

If you pre-order Battlefield: Bad Company 2 with Amazon.co.uk for £24.99, you'll receive a code to unlock the AK47 rifle instantly--around 15 hours of gameplay earlier than it would normally be available.
