American PS3 Users Still Waiting for Battlefield 3 Beta

Posted on September 29, 2011 AT 07:52am

THE BUZZ: While everyone else is off enjoying the Battlefield 3 beta, it appears that Sony is making North American PlayStation 3 owners wait a little while longer to join in the fun.

EA posted on the official Battlefield 3 blog that the beta was now available for everyone, but PlayStation 3 owners would have to wait until Sony performs their Store update later today.

Starting today, we are happy to invite all players to the Battlefield 3 Open Beta! You can find the download instructions for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC below. For PlayStation 3 users in North America, expect the Open Beta to be downloadable later today, once Sony completes their weekly update.

The same thing was reiterated over on the game’s official twitter account:

“For PlayStation 3 users in North America, expect the Battlefield 3 Open Beta to be available later today.”

EGM’s TAKE: Don’t panic PlayStation 3 fans, I’m sure Sony will give you the beta soon.

How do you feel about Sony making you wait?
Please comment below.
