Today is the public release date for the Battlefield 3 beta. It's a slightly finicky process to get yourself a copy. It's only playable for twelve days, so use our guide to grab it before it shutters on October 10.

Make an EA/Origin account
Before the Battlefield 3 beta lets you through the gates, it'll ask you for your EA/Origin user name and password. Make one ahead of time and avoid that clumsy on-screen keyboard by following this link.

Xbox 360
The beta is go for Microsoft's system. You'll see it right on the dashboard when you boot your 360, or you can queue up the download right now with this
link. Once you have it queued, you can have your roommate, parent, or spouse turn on your Xbox. The download will begin automatically, and the BF3 beta will be waiting when you get home.

PlayStation 3
While it will be released today, as of this writing, the Battlefield 3 beta is not yet ready for download on Sony's system. When it does become available, it will be featured prominently on PlayStation's home screen. You won't miss it.
PSNers, don't worry, you won't be second class citizens forever. You'll actually get
BF3 DLC first when the game launches.

UPDATE:The BF3 beta is now available in the Playstation Store.

PC gamers can grab the beta through EA's Origin service by following this
Also, be sure to grab the latest beta-optimized drivers for your video card. Get AMD Radeon
