Just caught up with this thread - it would appear from the previous posts that pre-order through EB is the way to go. Is it best to order online or go into the local EB store and pre-order for pick up?

I just went in yesterday and paid a A$10 deposit at my local Eb games in Westfield Doncaster shoppingtown. With an expected full price of A$78-00 on the expected release date of the 25th October 2011

I recommend a store deposit and pick up because:

1. They will ring you when its in stock if you leave your mobile or home number in their database.

2. They will hold it securely in the back store room until you have time to collect it (unlike
post where I have had packages which look like someone has used it as a football)

3. You can pick it up immediately from the store when it becomes in stock whereas Australia Post may delay delivery by a few days, despite your urgency to play.

4. You can price match comparable offers at the time of payment of the balance. Though not sure how prepared they will be to price match given the Physical Warfare item is exclusive.

5. If you don't care about the exclusive online weapons nor playing within the first week of launch, I would just order from Ozgamesshop in Australian dollars with free delivery to australia from the UK for almost half the price we are paying in Australia. Though I have had a game sent squashed by australia post though the DVD game disks arrived in tact. Just all the surrounding packaging was crushed flat!!

I don't know if this has been mentioned before (I did a quick search and didn't find anything), but EA's Origin is offering a BF3 pre order bonus now.
If you pre order through Origin you get the Back to Karkand DLC and the Physical Warfare Pack aswell. Link
Origin are charging $79.99 AU. So if you don't mind having no disk and having to download it a pretty good option imo.

Is there any mention of a preload option if getting from 'Origin'

+1 to preload. I'm thinking Origin myself. Any updates would be appreciated!

And will pre-ordering help you get into the beta earlier/at all?

I just copy the relevant files to a backup drive, don't need a physical disc here

My understanding is that if you bought that god awful MOH game you get access to the 'Closed Beta' though after that there is an 'Open Beta'. I am unsure if the open is just that, being that it is a client download open to everyone (making sense) or an invite only affair.

Butters, there was talk over at the EA UK forums that if you pre ordered through Origin, that you got early access to the Beta. Link
I don't know if that is just overseas though. Here's a screen shot.
