What confuses me is (and I'll ask when I trade it in unless somebody else already knows) that at GS you get $5 towards a reservation of GoW3 w/purchase of Bulletstorm. So technically you should have two beta keys anyway...


Your Bulletstorm disc doesn't require a key, it is a menu choice, so you have to have the disc. it should be active on April 18. I don't know if you have to have the EA online pass. (It is a multiplayer beta, but the publisher for Gears is Microsoft.)

You can go to GameStop and show your receipt. They will print off a key that will be good on April 25.

You do get one week early access to the beta for Bulletstorm Epic Edition.

The online pass (in the epic edition ONLY, the online pass for the normal edition does not include the beta) for Bulletstorm activates the Beta, which will start on the 18th.

The PC retail version is $39.95 also. I am thinking about picking it up because it comes with Gear of War PC.


You sure about that? I thought that was just a special that the Games for Windows Live Marketplace was running. I don't see any mention on Amazon's page about it being included.

The game was pretty short. I finished it on the hardest difficulty and it took roughly about 11 hours. The on-line play is kinda whack also. Unless you like going in circles and being on the same map for 20 levels lol

I paid $60 for Bulletstorm (well with a $20 credit) and I have not regretted it once. Even without the $20 credit, I still got my money's worth. It is probably the only non Valve FPS (and well Bad Company 2's multiplayer) I have played in like the past 3 years that has not bored me to death within an hour of playing. I never once found the skillshots repetive or boring because I was always finding new ways to rack up points, and it beats having to hide behind a wall 85% of the time like in about every other fucking shooter nowadays.

I have a feeling this will be one of those games that drop to $20 or les by the end of the year. I'll wait till then.

What a second I'm confused. Pardon me if I'm reading this wrong, but you said that the Bulletstorm beta doesn't require a key because it's a menu choice (I know that, have the Epic Edition), but then you said that you can go into GS and have them print off you key. Is that for the GoW 3 preorder beta?

I got a text a few days ago saying I have to come in and get my beta key... So really if I want to play the beta I should be able to return Bulletstorm and have no issue, right? I just don't get early access.

First run retail copies are supposed to include Gear of War apparently from what I have heard and read. I think I saw it on PCgamer or something.

I decided not to buy it with Dragon Age 2 coming tomorrow. Would not be able to play it for a month prob and then the price could be lower and it will be closer to the gears beta so I would want it for 360.

You are correct. I left off that you need to show that you pre-ordered Gears 3 to get the key.

If you check http://gearsofwar.xb...ry.aspx?id=2004, you'll see that they are unlocking skins/etc. in Gears 3 for playing the beta. The Bulletstorm peeps get the flaming hammerburst.

I would get this if it's the Epic Edition, as of now most think it is indeed the Epic Edition? Or are we to assume it's just a crapshoot whether you will get that version or not?

I thinK I'll just "rent" a used version from Gamestop sometime...it sounds like its really short and while the arcade point system adds some replay value, after 1 playthrough youve probably done about as much experimenting with different kills as you can

Really fun demo, but agreed with whoever said that announcing DLC on day one is a major turnoff


I'm surprised no one caught this post earlier. I hate it when people do this kind of thing. Say what you will about how bad Gamestop is, but taking advantage of a policy like that is pretty lame in my book. I hope you eventually get blacklisted. =P

They need to do what WalMart does with no-receipt returns and require an ID and put a limit on people.

So tempting at this price especially with all the positive comments I've heard on podcasts. But think I'm gonna have to pass especially with Dragon Age 2 coming out tomorrow. Goodbye social life LOL :-)

Got mine at Kmart too, love the game, but Dead Space is my favorite franchise, took precedent as far as a favorite thus far, but this really is a fantastic game.

pretty much every game around has a similar drop in the same time frame. if they havent learned this by now, hopefully this will be their lesson learned.

Except a lot of people who "paid full price" did get a $20 credit, if bought from Amazon (I did), which makes it a wash.

I actually wish I bought it at launch with the $20 promo credit and Epic Edition code (to resell) as Bulletstorm was worth $40 trade-in credit to Amazon a week back (now $27).

$35 would at least look more tempting for the non Epic Edition...
