That’s right. Pre-order your copy of GoW 3 from Gamestop and you will be guaranteed a spot in the upcoming beta which starts on April 25th.
Along with entrance into the beta, early adopters will receive a “beta tester’s medal” and are eligible to win other goodies such as the “Thrashball” era Cole and a vintage gold plated lancer (both unlocked through in-beta achievements).
Gears of War 3 is set to release on September 20, 2011.
