Played Battlefield 3's beta last night, had to say i quite enjoyed it after a briefly bumpy start.

I dont love the whole internet browser way of checking in game stuff but i gradually got used to it. So I think I can live with it. And even though its browser based I was impressed with the quick opening of games being actually quite fluid and fast on my pc, so although its not what i preferred it isnt horrible either. (I also liked the option of full screen easy switching in the game as I prefer playing on a slightly smaller window sometimes)

As for the game itself, I loved it so far, playing on random servers, i did encounter one hacker... a real one... 80+ kills 0 deaths. Sniping me from across the entire map with an assault rifle... Either an aimbot hacker or a japanese 4 year old Battlefield 3 savant... Im guessing the former.

Other than that one server though i had no real issues. A few ping spikes but nothing too bad, so all in all I am looking forward to the game.

P.s. on amazon the release date is shown as 28th October (30 for collectors)
On Origin the preorder release date is 25th October (40 for collectors)

I have to say the temptation to pay more for those extra 3 days is strong...

I think I'll be giving this a good hammering over the weekend.

Did I read the beta will end after the weekend?

I hope it doesnt... that would suck as I only just started playing it.

Ill probably play a bit myself tomorrow morning and sunday evening, in between games of Rage I think i am starting to like the browser interface for multiplayer after all... It really makes it easier to play a casual game. Simply load the browser choose a server and click play... No need to go through all the game menus etc.. Sometimes that is what you need from a multiplayer game to know that you can be in the game in a couple of seconds if you want.

Addition: I have just checked and apparently this is the final weekend
