    GoW3 beta access comes with Bulletstorm Epic Edition, but is anyone else but Game selling it?

    Yes, I think either Epic or Cliffy B claimed every 360 pre-order should be the epic edition, but there'd be limited sticks of it.

    Only Game are charging extra for it as far as I've seen though. I have ordered the bog-standard from them and will see if they honour Epic's promise for all pre-orders.

    Has anyone pre-ordered the standard edition in-store at Game or Gamestation? The reason I ask, is that at my local Gamestation I asked about it and was told that beta access was only for orders of the limited and epic edition copies, with 5 and 10 deposit required respectively. This is consistent with what is noted in this Eurogamer news item

    However, on the Game and Gamestation webpages standard edition is listed as giving access to the beta. On that note, has anyone ever pre-ordered using the "deliver to store" option? I was wondering if you have to await your specific copy to arrive in, or whether you are guaranteed to walk in and collect a copy on release date?

    Just order from the website - you'll get the code nearer the time and you can cancel the pre-order if you see it cheaper elsewhere!

    I preordered Gears 3 from Game and to my bewilderment I could only have a copy that's 60 or 100 to get on the beta.

    So, my preorder's getting cancelled after the beta's ended then. I will still end up having paid 5 to help Epic get their game working but I'm not paying more than 40 for the main game, no matter how many mass producing art booklets or jean patches they shove in the box.

    It's getting silly now. Betas as promotional tools is one thing, actually having to pay for it is something else entirely.

    I preordered the LE on the GAME website, and the beta code will be sent out. There's nothing on there to say that they require a 5 deposit...

    Did it in store buddy. Have you got a link for the page to preorder for free? I'd rather get the code by email than rely on the store phoning me.

    I'm guessing...no. Although you haven't yet used the beta code, I guess.
  • Deleted user 1 April 2011 14:51:04
    Ah, well. Lesson learned I guess.

    Beta Better Be Brill. Alliteration for the nation. : )

    I wouldn't give up hope. What would it hurt to try to cancel it?

    And your lyrical wit makes my head hurt :(

    That deposit should be refundable. At least, it was when I asked about it. Whether they give you store credit or an actual refund is another question though...

    When does the beta start? The 18th isn't it? I went for the Bulletstorm Epic edition option.

    Portal 2, Crysis 2 and the other games I'm working on are going to suffer once this comes out.

    If it works better than the Gears 2 multiplayer did to start with anyway!

    18th for Bulletstorm EE owners, 25th for everyone else who pre-orders it/snags a code another way.

    Oh, and it does work better than Gears 2 ;)

    Does the PC version of Bulletstorm (it's a Games for Windows LIVE title) give access to the Gears 3 beta?

    When I went into GAME to try and pre-order GoW3, the manager said they weren't handing out the codes until much later. They said they had them, but were not allowed to release them. Although I've had one or two places have been naughty and friends of mine do have codes already. Obviously they can't do anything with them just yet...

    Lie with passion and be forever damned...

    Been a while since we had an update on this. Anyone gonna take part in the beta? On one hand I'm definitely buying GoW3, but I can't say I played the last 2 games for their multilayer content. So not sure if I should pre-order or not.

    It's starting 25th for those that didn't get the Bulletstorm codes right? (and pre-ordered at game). I'd join in if we could get a group of us together. And then eventually 4 player co-op on campaign :D

    Yeah, 25th for pre-orders is right. If you do it online, codes should be emailed around the 21st.

    I'll probably have a spare code for the 25th since I'll be in a little bit earlier.

    I'm really looking forward to this now. Might have to play through the Gears 2 campaign again soon in anticipation.
