Battlefield 3 Beta Starts Today and Costs How Much?

 

By now every­one knows that the beta for the upcom­ing release Bat­tle­filed 3 is now avail­able for every­one to play on PC, Xbox and PS3.  I decid­ed to first down­load it on my Xbox and went to the dash­board to down­load it when I run into the pic­ture above.  I was mild­ly shocked when I was told it was going to cost me 429,496,795 Xbox 360 points.  That comes to a grand total, at $19.99 for 1600 points of $5,360,025.58 dol­lars.  I don’t know, that seems a bit pricey, espe­cial­ly for a beta.  But you know, we are in a reces­sion, got­ta do what it takes to make ends meet.  We all know EA is hurt­ing for mon­ey these days.  
In all seri­ous­ness it will not cost any­thing to play the beta but you will have to pay for the full game.  The beta release will fea­ture fea­ture 2 maps on the PC and 1 map for the Xbox 360 and PS3 play­ers (sor­ry guys).  It also fea­tures a good num­ber of weapons which are all unlock­able. 
For those of you who got ear­ly access and have already formed some opin­ions please let us know your thoughts.  What did you think?  Did it hold up to expec­ta­tions?  Were you under­whelmed?  Let us know!

    got to love XBL and EA they’re so sil­ly it is most like­ly a glitch that will get or is already fixed…
    now as for the XB ver­sion first thing.…IT’S A “BETA”!! although I’m think­ing it’s more like an alpha release because of the many graph­i­cal glitch­es I’ve been see­ing since Tues­day, and Tues­day I was able to join by myself at times though it would bomb alot when load­ing the match but by mid­night or so that was fixed. Now game­play is all Bat­tle­field! mas­sive amounts of weapon unlocks you lev­el real­ly fast and the map lay­out is real­ly well done rang­ing from open com­bat to close quar­ters mak­ing for a great bat­tle if both teams are aggres­sive­ly fighting/defending.
    Now if your use to BFBC2 this is allot dif­fer­ent in that when you unlock a weapon you must unlock the attach­ments for each weapon as well also the assault and sup­port class­es have be changed up hav­ing new roles as well and the biggest thing peo­ple may have an issue with is that you are no longer a bul­let sponge! 1 to 2 hits and your look­ing at a kill cam so a more strate­gic play style would be a good idea…all in all the game­play is damn good graph­ics are bug­gy as hell but then again the mantra to chant to your­self is BETA!
