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.
Ok, I like boxed copies but I need that beta key so I guess I will preorder on Steam. Was a little scared since it didnt list beta key anywhere on the steam page that I could see.

Yeah, I'm considering cancelling my order at Gamestop and pre-ordering on steam. Not sure what I'm going to do. I just don't want to drop money on shipping and lose a day when I have a Gamestop close to my house all so I can get into the beta. Not sure what my plan is.

I've got one preordered on gamestop in-store pick up so i can play on the first day, but I think I might preorder as well for shipping and once I get the beta code cancel that order. Lame but if they wanna deny instore beta keys thats the way it has to be i guess.

Don't worry, it's already been confirmed that they've added detail and better graphics to the textures and weapon skins for pc beta and release.

Yeah, seems like my best option as well. I just hate having to order it and then cancel. Pretty silly that they don't give beta keys for instore pickup.

I wonder if the PC beta will even have the highest res textures available due to file size. They prolly want to make a good impression so hopefully they will but we'll see. Recommended cpu is quad core, hope mine holds up...

Is it possible to preorder after the beta begins and still get into the beta?

On this page: http://www.gamestop.com/gs/help/Pre-orders.aspx

it says:
Quote:
Promotional Items
From time to time, GameStop.com will offer a special promotional item with a pre-order. Due to limited availability, these items are only available while supplies last.

Note: An order cannot be cancelled once the pre-order item or code has been supplied.
It's generally believed, that after you get the beta key, they won't let you cancel your order.
