dog tags pack…. really?
Plus a decidedly small poster if you pre order at gamestation.

I pre-ordered this + COD at the same time..and the COD poster is much more impressive. one side is almost suitable to hang on the wall too..its huge.

Lets just hope the beta is better than the alpha now..need the commo rose and no more 3d spotting!
48 Hours early access? Is that all! Glad i didn't bother with MOH now.

Shame for those who do have early access as in the first 24 hours all content servers will die from being overloaded like in BC2 and the other 24 hours will be with a massive client/server bug not seen before due to the sheer number of people involved. I can just see it now. :shocked2:

Hopefully if all else fails you can download it off Origin, while i hate that piece of software with a passion it should be the most stable method for content delivery to everyone.

The most stable way to get it would be to walk to your local gaming shop, pay 1/3 of the price for it, and then put the DVD in your system :D

Seeing as your local gaming shop will not have the beta on disc (which was what i was referring to) i highly doubt that :D
