Default BF: Bad Company 2 Beta (PS3)

So I just found out that they've got an upcoming beta for Bad Company 2 exclusively for PS3 (last time beta was exclusive to 360) on November 19th. I'm not sure where I can get a key without having to preorder the PS3 version. I would preorder, but I'll probably be getting this one for PC. Really want to try this out since I really enjoyed the first Bad Company on my 360, and I enjoy any Battlefield game for that matter. So anyone know where I can get a beta key for the upcoming ps3 beta??? I'd really appreciate it. They're also planning an open PC beta in December.

I love the fact that building will actually collapse in this version of Frostbite. Before you could have like 1 wall on 1 side of the building supporting the top floor lol. Here's some gameplay, looks siiiiccck. Look at 0:39, that guy almost gets nailed by an RPG haha.

That is really impressive footage.

And if they live up to some of their promises, this might just become the Kingslayer of the FPS genre!

Cheers!

So does anyone know where to get a PS3 beta key without preordering? Looks like I may have to wait for the PC open beta....

And I just found something out that definitely confirms me purchasing the PC version over consoles. Besides the fact of the higher resolution and more eye candy, the PC version will hold support for a HIGHER number of player per game (I'm hoping 64 like BF2) and.... DEDICATED SERVERS. Suck on that IW. The prone stance also may be included in the PC version. Those of you who played BF:BC, or even 1943, will remember there was no prone. This remains the same for console versions but DICE is still undecided on whether or to include it in the PC version. Apparantly it was major campfest with prone turned on. Here just read this. DICE releases Bad Company 2 dedicated server FAQ - News and Siteseeing F*ck am I stoked for this game. Think I'm going to put my 360 back together before I mod it to play some more BF:BC. And they just release 4 new maps for it on Oct 31st too
