    Sounds like BS to me. BFBC2 PS3 Beta was released well before the PC version. Why the need for a simultaneous release for BF3?!

    This could well be true, that they're waiting on the console certification, but I'm tempted to think they've leaked this info so they can release on PC early in a few days without offending the console crowd. Now the blame will lay solely on MS and Sony. Good PR move.

    This goes along with my vague memory of reading somewhere a long time ago that the beta was going to be out about a month before release.
