Recent rumours that have been circling the Internet have placed the console beta for Battlefield 3 as beginning late September early October however Dice have come out and confirmed that this is not true.
Daniel Matros, Global Battlefield Community Manager has today said on twitter;
Here is me letting you know there still isnt an ETA. Dont believe the internet.
So it would appear that we still have a wait on our hands to find out when the Battlefield 3 console beta will begin.
