I jsut preordered the ultimate edition through gamestop because it's the only way you can get it. It comes with a guarenteed beta invite for all future betas, but how does Trion (ie defiance) know that i've preordered because it takes you through gamestop. I want to maek sure that i get the key.

Gamestop will most likely email or physical mail you a special key for beta.

Good luck. In the week leading up to this last beta we just had, so many people we having trouble getting in even after applying a beta key they had received from a website working with Trion. If gamestop didn't even give you a code, i'm not sure how well it will work for you. Lets hope Trion's cooperation with gamestop is better than it was with the websites Zam and MMORPG the last time. I wish you luck.

Thinking of getting the ultimate my self but i ask the same question and i am in EU it means shipping alone would cost me another 40 Bucks, it becomes quite steep. Would be nice to hear something about EU soon before ultimate vanishes or if there is an separate amount for NA and EU.

So i jsut got done talking to a couple people in the gamestop corporate offices. And this is the low-down for BETA keys for physical editions of the game.

Gamestop is getting the BETA keys generated today, so once they get them they'll email them out to everyone in about 2 buisiness days.

So do we get a beta invite to whatever system we pre order for?

it depends on if they are letting the other systems into the BETA, i.e. trion may do a pc only beta, or a ps3 only beta for that event. But you'll get your key according to someone named Aaron at Gamestop corporate in customer service

Well I ordered the standard edition on Amazon so we will see what happens. I will try to ask them and see if they know. They prolly wont. They should do a beta for all the systems in my opinion.

I would go back to make sure. They sometimes can make mistakes.

My GS receipt specifically says 'Defiance GS Exclusive Ed'. The Collectors Ed is the $99 one. I know this because my cashier screwed up on initial ring up.

Well im preordering 5 of the $150 editions for me (2) and 3 friends.
I might change to the $100 edition, as i don't really know what the bonus of the 1,2000 bits are as i don't know what they are.

I think the season pass alone will be worth the extra money and the 12000 bits are just a bonus. I don't think anyone could really argue that you should at least get the CE. Those are some nice incintives IMO.
