Beta : 
The beta is available through all versions of Medal of Honor. The stipulation, however, is that the invite is only valid if the beta is opened within 12 months of MOH's release.     

So yeah, afraid im gonna buy that shitty game just to get a Beta key >_> not now though. 

 what about you ?

Already have MOH and I still play it occasionally when I want some quick matches. 
Guess I'm the only one who don't find it shitty.

I had MOH and didn't even bother to take the Battlefield 3 beta card out of the box. Mainly because I was in such a rush to return the piece of shit.

No.
 
I'm not going to buy a $30 - $40 game that I have little to no interest in just for a beta key that may or may not end up valid.

Thought about it, but NO. You'll have to be crazy or just desperate to buy yourself into beta.

I bought Borderlands GOTY when it was on a Steam sale, because it was a good deal, totally not because I want to fondle balls of steel.
 
Now, MoH.. us BF3 hungry types need confirmation ASAP about this. If I can buy a console version for cheaps, I'll do it. If I can buy a PC regular edition, for less, I'll do that. Anything that gets me out of the dull experience that is Black Ops PC.

There should be some other way to get beta access. Probably by preordering the game (PC)

Or maybe I will get access to beta through PSN Plus. 

I will wait until then.

I bought Crackdown to get into the Halo 3 beta, so it's not like I'm above this, but no. It was stupid then and it's stupid now. Though I did end up really enjoying Crackdown.

Yes - and I bought it twice. Once for PS3 at release and once tomorrow (that's when it arrives in the mail at least) for PC - dirt cheap I might add. Don't worry - it's a brandnew shrinkwrapped Limited Edition including BF3 access - there's nothing but LEs on the market.
 
Why? Because the beta entry is platform exclusive. PS3 version for PS3 beta (beta access is an on disc feature) and PC version for PC beta. Yes - I'm a BF nut and no, I don't regret the purchase. I was well entertained by the MoH campaign and did enjoy about 30-40 hours of online multiplayer, which enjoyed for the most parts quite a lot. Looking forward to replaying the MoH campaign on PC and especially getting the full beta range on BF3.
 
About MoH being bad... it isn't. Who says otherwise wants it to be bad - badly.

I already own it. It's not a bad game at all. I clocked about 30 hours worth of game time and had great fun while doing it. You also get lots of extra goodies through the EA gun club.

I was kind of interested in the game either way and it's only $16. Still kind of uncertain though, because I'd rather play the finished product.

Come to think of it, if you can find MoH for $20 or less, I think that would be worth buying reardless of the beta. The campaign did some interesting things with tone and storytelling that are worth seeing, if not paying the full $70.

Nope, BF: Bad Company 2 is enough for me and Halo: Reach is my primary multiplayer FPS game.

BF Betas and Demos are usually quite legendary. Most beta/demo maps have become fan favorites. I put 200+ hours into the PS3 Beta of BF:BC 2. Really getting the most out of one map. It was superawesome. Then again... I was in the top10 crazy people playing the Beta waaay too much, at least in terms of kills.

Aaah yes! The BF2 demo sure bring back memories! Gulf of Oman was such a fun map. Must have put 40 or 50 hours into that bugger before the game shipped.

@Seppli:  au contraire mon frere, I blow shit up reeeeeal good on a nightly basis with Bad Company 2 :) Already have my copy of BF3 preordered, and MOH didn't grab me in the beta like I had hoped it would...so I'm just gonna wait till release and keep my BFBC2 fix going.

Those are bad options, they will give out keys in other ways.

I actually preordered MoH based on the belief that it would actually be a good game. God was I wrong. But if I get access to the BF3 beta, I'm okay with having wasted the money. And I think it's fair to give BF3 beta keys to MoH owners, since the people who preordered MoH were primarily big DICE fans.

No why would i do that. I can live without being in a beta program.

They usually give beta keys away on steam when you preorder the game.

Nooo no. No no no no no. As much as I would like to be in a BF3 beta, I have no interest in MoH at all.

I only ever play beta's for like 10-20 minutes max and delete it, just for a taste of what is to come. 
 
So no I will not be buying MOH just for the beta.

Nice! Just got my PC copy from my retailer and it was totally gratis. It's always nice to be rewarded for being a regular customer.

@Ahmad_Metallic: 
I don't know current state of the deal, but when I bought MOH - EA said that only Limited Edition owners will have a chance to obtain BF3 Beta Key. Maybe something has changed and I don't know that?

No amount of incentive could ever convince me to buy the trainwreck that is MoH.
