here is another wonderful response from the great people over at EA.
When asked how I am supposed to enter a pre-order bonus code that gamestop was unaware they were supposed to supply people with on or before the 17th I received this for a response.
I have a pre-order through gamestop but they are not begining to deliver codes until 6-21 so how is it possible for me a VIP member who meets both requirements to get in the early access beta as promoted
Thank you for writing to us at Electronic Arts.
I apologize for any inconvenience caused to you thus far.
Since you have purchased the game from game stop ,there is nothing we can do regarding this. More information and Beta availability updates can be found at
Your patience is highly appreciated while resolving this issue.
If you have any further questions or concerns please reply to this email or visit our extensive knowledge base online at .
and now my final response
So there is nothing that can be done by EA for a promotion that EA is holding and is responsible for ? This is why I don't support your products and thank you anyway but I will be canceling my pre-order, you have lost a customer for life due to your complete incompetence in almost everything that your company does
now I know this wont affect them in anyway but it is idiotic to run a promotion that you can not claim responsibility for.
Now if your one of the lucky few who receive a pre-order code early or from the store today be lucky because they will not be delivering more until tomorrow at the earliest and from there who really fuking knows how to redeem it anyway. I almost feel jelous of the 360 not getting the beta on time because at least they dont have to deal with any bulls**t just to get what is rightfully offered to them.
