Its showing up for 50, probably with beta access.

Link doesn't work as of 3:17 PM PST 1/22/10.

It will in a few minutes. I'll fully update the post when we can actually click on it.

Unfortunately it seems that EA won't give us a discount price on it.

If you want to preorder the thing now and get a beta key,

You can buy now with beta access on the 28th.

Shame no real deal. Ignore this thread.

Amazon has it at the same price but you get the actual physical copy shipped to your door free. I refuse to buy digital copies of things if they charge the same as retail stores

This game is going to be awesome! I played the ps3 beta non-stop almost everyday. I'm already pre-ordering it and will be giving up mw2 when the demo comes out on feb 4th.

Curious, does Amazon give you Beta access too?

And yes it's a shame that its retail price. I made this thread in anticipation that people wanted games tied to their steam account, a 5 dollar discount, a 4 pack, beta access, and a free copy of Battlefield 2 ala Bioshock 2.

As far as I have checked amazon.com is not giving the beta keys. Only gamestop, ea store and amazon.de

Does anyone else think making a digital copy of something "limited edition" a bit silly? Nothing limited about it at all........

All preorders are limited edition.

Congratulations. You like retail copies. I like digital copies. You, unlike me and the rest of the world, can take care of your plastic discs and can take them wherever you go. I lose things and so do other people. If thats the case, steam is a nice convenience for some of us. Yes I do agree that digital should be cheaper. However, being able to download the software over and over is a small price to pay for some people.

Only when it gives you Beta access and is on steam.

It is limited edition. It gives you six unlocks as an incentive for preordering. You can gain those normally. Once it is released, the limited edition will disappear. All preorders are limited editions.

Can anyone tell me if I will be able to enter the key from a physical copy to my steam account? If so, I will just want the physical copy.

Also, will servers be hosted/searchable on steam? I hate using other programs like the windows live game system.

No, you can only use Steam if you buy from Steam. Servers will be searchable from inside the game, no matter where you get it from.

thank you!

This is going to be the best deal on the game for awhile unless it flops. Beta so far is suggesting otherwise, this is definitely worth buying.
