I think it's limited as in it's only being sold as a preorder item, but who knows... Who wants to bet the exclusive unlocks won't be exclusive for long.

Limited edition gives you access to unlocks everyone else can obtain. You just get these unlocks instantly without having to rank up to get them. It takes a while to level up, so these unlocks are quite nice to have early. Also if you pre-order from gamestop you will instantly unlock the AKS-74 assault rifle, another thing to have before others do.

Oh and for those wondering what the limited edition gives:

Yup. Steam still gives beta access.

Also, for those of you that want to see some videos from the ps3 beta, http://www.youtube.com/user/Follicular This guy's channel has lots of videos in 1080p, I've been watching them all morning.

Looks pretty awesome.

I can't tell if the guns are select-fire though. Would suck if they weren't.

I'm going to preorder it from Gamestop so I can get in on the beta.

Yeah, that's what I did, we have a Gamestop about 2 miles from here so I'm doing in-store pickup. Also, if you pre-order from Gamestop you get Limited Edition and early access to the AKS-74 rifle. I'm pretty excited for Thursday to be honest. We'll have to get NVN together and play.

Might want to check your order.

I think it says that you can't get beta access with in store pickup for some reason.

EDIT: Yep...

Odd, I didn't see that part. Interesting, going to have to change my order. I saw the part saying that you couldn't get a beta code if you pre-ordered ins the store, but I thought it was fine if you ordered online. Hmm.
