If you are an Xbox 360 owner and had a feeling that EA may be prioritizing the PS3 version of Battlefield 3 over the Xbox 360 version, we have some excellent news for you. A screenshot has been revealed online, supposedly confirming a multiplayer beta for the Xbox 360.
The image has apparently been provided by a EA UK employee and his Twitter account, although the Twitter page associated with the user has now been deleted. Below is the image in question so you can take a look at it for yourself – it looks pretty authentic to us.
As you can see, the image of the Xbox 360 beta on screen is accompanied by a full Xbox 360 setup in the user’s living room, which perhaps provides even more evidence that this is real and not just a photoshop created quickly on the PC.
Other points of observation in the screenshot include the Frostbite, EA and DICE logos, complete with an EA disclaimer and auto saving reminder in the bottom right and left corners of the image.
Obviously, EA are yet to confirm whether this screenshot is real or not, but it does provide Xbox 360 owners with a real glimmer of hope that they will also be included into the beta which is scheduled to take place on the PS3 and PC sometime this month. Don’t forget that gamers who purchased the limited edition version of Medal Of Honor have already been guaranteed access into the beta, but we expect there will be plenty of other ways to get in as well.
Is it the second most anticipated beta of the year behind Modern Warfare 3? Some of you may even be thinking that this game will take priority on all platforms ahead of any other game. A beta release will give EA a good indication on just what demand they are dealing with for when the full game releases on October 25th.
Are you excited about participating in the Battlefield 3 beta?
