Hell Hath No Fury Like the Gamer Denied – BF3 Edition
Oh dear, it looks like even you pre-ordered Battlefield 3 via Origins for PC in Singapore, you would not be able to get into the early beta headstart for the game.
The news is even more grim for gamers who previously purchased Medal of Honor Tier 1 for the Xbox or PS3. Gamers in Asia would not be able to access the beta for the console versions.
From a business standpoint of things, it was rather sad that Electronic Arts would forgo their fanbase in Asia. Every dollar counts no? But I guess that Asia still is too small a market especially when compared to the US and Europe. Funny though, if that is the case, how is it that the local Facebook Fan Page for EA Singapore is able to garner close to 50k Likes? Case of the mothership not as supportive as their local offices?
Anyway, above all the gamer QQ, EA Singapore has been very forthcoming with keeping fans in Asia updated. Do check out the following link to get more info on the situation. By the way, take the time to read through all the responses before posting a new question, it may already have been answered.

Fellow fan Rusty Saw has a hit the nail upon the head:
Pre-ordered via Origin for PC, still havent received any keys. Way to promise things that cant be delivered. This is why Steam will always be better than Origin.
Steam can only gain from Origin’s demise.
