I believe the medal of honor early access was available world wide, its the origin pre order that only offers early access to the US.

You know they don't even have to put out a beta for you guys right? They also didn't have to have an external alpha test. I don't mind waiting a couple of extra days for the beta since I pre-ordered at D2D, and as for it being an "open" beta, I'm thinking it will be similar to BC2 where you need to get a key to play it which will be given to some websites to hand out and I'm sure DICE themselves will send keys to BF veterans or pre-orders.

What happens for someone like me that preordered a hard copy from an online big box store?

I just browsed FS and look what I found :

"Pre-order Battlefield 3 at Future Shop and upgrade free to the Limited Edition. The Limited Edition includes access to Battlefield 3 Back to Karkand expansion pack"

For you wondering why order from FS, I got it when they had the 3 pre-order and save $$ on each game deal.

everyone who pre-ordered get the pre-order DLC guys.

The only thing that we have to wait a bit longer for is the beta.
