Is the Gears 3 Beta on the Disc or is it a Code?

The reason I ask is because I may be able to get the game used for about $20 less.

in short - dont know sorry :(

The game comes with a lame-o EA Online Pass code, so without that little slip of paper you'll have to fork over $10 if you want to play multiplayer (which I'm sure affects the Gears beta - which requires the disc). If you don't care about the MP or the beta, not a bad price for used.
Amazon has it (today only - 3/7) for $39.99, new. So that's something to chew on also.

Yes, the Online Pass is required to activate the Beta. Without one the Beta won't even appear on the main menu.

  You'll need the disc in the drive during the entire beta to play.
