ITT: Conveniently forget that Call of Duty was a ripoff of Medal of Honor in the first place, compare the two unfairly.

Can't say I didn't see that coming.

Hmmm wonder if a used BC2 beta key would work... I think I still have the email with it....


it will, it uses the same format. APB however uses a different format and I'm not sure about other EA betas

I don't see how the BC2 beta will work since it's 12 digits and not 16

edit- well I tried 4 random numbers and I seriously thought it was gonna go through but led to a different page saying code does not exist

Can anyone else not crouch? I can't tell if they purposefully left it out because I think I see other people doing it but I just can't crouch...

EDIT: If you choose the option "Toggle Crouch: OFF" It breaks a lot of controls. Don't do that.

For those of you experiencing PS3 freezing issues, try to avoid pressing select or start as much as possible. If you press select while you're in the load out screen, a hard freeze is almost inevitable at the moment.
If you are looking for more information about the freezing issue, or know of any other instances that causes freezing, please go to this page, the official DEV thread about it

The only way I have found to stop the freezes is to stop playing. Every time I press start or select I'm taking a gamble, every time I score 4 kills in a row and get my points over 40 for a chain it locks up. I should have just waited for the 360 one, at least its being worked on right now, I hate using R1 to shoot, bastard ass developers need to give me the option to change it to R2.

Just to confirm, the only way to play in the beta is if you had a VIP code for BC2?

Until Monday, yes. On Monday, it becomes open to anyone with a preorder (or illegitimately earned) code.

To each their own....
If you feel that strongly about it, then you should leave a comment with the developers......
http://forum.ea.com/...s/show/190.page
But if you really dislike using the R1 button to shoot, then maybe PS3 isn't the right system for you, because many shooters on the PS3 force you to use the R1 button, and the controller was designed with that in mind.

I have the beta for PS3 already, but want to try in on PC as well. I'm pretty sure you can only have one beta per BF VIP account, so I will be waiting until monday to try the PC beta.

Someone on the MoH forums posted something that seems to be working for alot of people, the link is right here..........

http://forum.ea.com/...ist/962769.page

Basically, don't ever hit select, and don't ever score 40 or more when you're playing as the insurgents.

Wow, cool!! I just used my extra beta code to play the PC version as well, with the same VIP account that I used for the PS3. For any VIP members who want to try it on both platforms, get another beta code and link it with the same VIP account. It looks really cool on the PC, even on my crappy laptop with all the video settings turned down and a chunky framerate. Going back to PS3 now, though, cuz my keyboard and mouse suck.

I wish they would have options in the beta to change the control scheme as well. The R1 = shoot is what I like though personally. I don't like the triggers to be the fire button. Probably because I don't like double action triggers, much prefer single action so the R1 makes it feel more at home for me.

I looked into it, yes, you should be able to cancel, but some people said there's no easy way to do it... You may have to do a chat with the techs directly in order to cancel. I've never done it before so I don't know. I waited till the morning and threw down $5 at gamestop so i didn't have to deal with it.

So I went to go play the beta today and it said only BCII players with official(or some word like that) vip players can access the beta. And it let me play around the menu but it didn't let me start a game. Happening to anyone else?

As of now, Maynard, it doesn't really apply, because beginning the 21st.... (i think at 12am). But for early access before the 21st, you have to use the EA account that you have BFBC 2 VIP status with when you sign in on the beta. Also check out the EA gunclub:

yes, basis, you have to preorder to get the beta code, unless you managed to nab one from some other means before they all got snatched up...
If you did manage to get a beta code without preordering, then I would assume that once it does go live for Xbox 360 that the Medal of honor beta site would update to include the choice for 360, since the codes initially are for all 3 platforms, when you redeem online, that is when you choose which platform you want it for.

I'm enjoying the beta, but it's pretty much the same thing as BF BC2, plays just like it, looks close to it, but I like it.

I'm hoping I can play against some family members once this becomes open to non-VIP BFBC2 accounts. I've already set up the beta on my system and my nephew's. When we tried to play the other night, he got a message stating he needed a VIP account to play. I'm hoping we won't have that issue once it becomes open to non-BFBC2 accounts?

FYI, Amazon pre-orders include a beta key and there's no obligation to buy. Just got mine this morning.
