According to VG247 people are pre- ordering The Division to get into the beta and afterwards they are cancelling the pre- order.
Preordering is the safe way to get into the beta that starts in two days on Xbox One and three days from now on PC and PS4. This seems to happen via Amazon who are not charging users untill close to release date or , sometimes, untill the shipping day. Also, there seems as if the PS4 players are playing the pre-ordering game via the PS Store.
This is not the first game that this happens with, as you might recall Black Ops 3 beta and very possible not the last game either. Gamers will be gamers thought.
What do you think about this method? Is it something you have done before or planning to do in the future? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
