Does the code that came with the collectors edition of Splinter Cell Conviction still grant access to the beta when it comes out?
We won't know until it comes out...well that is my theory.
Surely, ANY code at all* will grant access? :/
*That you are given of course, (duh)
Yes, my signature is outdated. Shut up.
How long does it take to get your code because I still have gotten my email
When the beta comes out (in April, for the Xbox and the PS3, no word yet on PC), you can get access by opening the game, going to the Extra-menu. There should be a new entry there (or maybe in the submenu "Exclusive Content"). I'm not sure you will get an e-mail (I actually don't think so), and you will have to wait till the beta actually comes out.
Will the beta be open to the public ever?
Currently when you go to the "lobby" on the game. There is the scrolling message that says "blah blah register for MP online by pressing X on your controller now." MP will be available April 19.
