I bought the game 15th Aug for £22.99 at 365games.co.uk. But that was before the talk about the game being more expensive in Euroland (mainland Europe) than in Poundland (UK). Then prices rose on gaming sites pretty much simultaneously and now it's £26.99 on 365games...

Im still waiting for my GMG beta code. You guys get yours?

They will only sent it a day or 2 before the beta date is released.

Yea I ordered from them last year and again this year. Last year they sent the code out on the day the beta was released a few hours beforehand, we will definitely get it in time :-)

I got my code 25th September. The code is seemingly working fine with Steam. It says Football Manager 14 in my Steam library. Obviously nothing has been downloaded yet, though.

Does the code get e-mailed? May need to check my spam if so, haven't knowingly received anything. Or do you need to go on GMG itself and get the code?

I don't know about GMG. I bought mine at 365games. I got the code e-mailed to me. That has always been the case when I buy a digital copy of games at whatever company. So I guess GMG would e-mail you as well when they decide so...

They replied to me (GMG), that codes will be available upon release.

But you still can't redeem it yet, right? I bought the last 3 FMs from them, they have always deliver on time, that's good enough for me.

Also got my key from them, last year they sent out the GMG keys an hour or so before the beta launched.

Not saying its going to follow suit this year but heres hoping.

I got the activation code as well, think they've just gotten ahead of themselves.

Activated though, so when FM is available I can download straight away.

I just read on this forum that someone had a beta key sent to them and it said it was ready to download on 16 oct 2013 at 00:01 so I've shot on to my pc and as I have ordered through steam expected to see an install option on the game but I was greeted with football manager 2014 coming soon. I presume that it means 00:01 17 oct what means they have put an incorrect date on the email. This makes me think what was all this BS about miles not knowing it would go live til an hour before I knew we were getting blagged its like me saying

me: im moving house

other person: when?

me: oh I wont know until an hour before

For info:

The time and date has not been confirmed here, the beta will be released when it's ready. Thanks for bringing this up so we can chase up GMG as to why they've added this incorrect information.

Yes, buying a game is just like moving house. Dear oh dear, just be patient! It's ready when it's ready.

Its GMG putting the incorrect date/time not anything to do with SI. You are asuming they mean 17th at 00:01

Waaaay, what a move by GMG putting the wrong date :rolleyes:

Still, it's progress. It'll drop in a little over twelve hours at the very latest. Hurrah.

If someone could forward me their GMG email to *snip* it'd be appreciated. Thanks. (And no, I won't use your code! :D)

Not correct. The official statement says "the early access period will be around 2 weeks".

It is 12 hours until the 17th, but the pre-release Beta will not necessarily be available exactly 2 weeks before release.

LOL @ people on this thread. I got my code from GMG last night too. Am I bothered I can't install it yet? Er, no. It's just a computer game after all. It'll be ready when it's ready. Still enjoying FM13 anyway, so it really is no big deal.

My bad, I assumed the wrong date was just a day early, as the midnight Wednesday/Thursday time was also harped on a while back when the beta was first announced. Yeah, it could be later, so I'll retract what I said. But if I'm right I expect a grovelling apology (not really)

Got my code just now also, I have one day off work today before 8 days of early shifts in a row, doesn't really matter to me when it comes out, won't have time to play it properly for about a week anyway. I'm gonna guess that it'll come out tonight when I'm in bed though lol.

I think they've obviously misphrased it. They're giving you the codes because they anticipate the Beta to be out two weeks prior (i.e very soon). So you now have the codes, which, when put in steam gets you the game ready and primed for download when the beta inevitably comes out.

Someone obviously dropped the ball by including the date and time though. >_>

Just to finally put a stop to all the speculation...

The only time anyone will know (retailers, us, fans, online retailers.... anyone) will know when beta is out .. is when it's announced on this website/official twitter etc.

Not a minute before...

Wouldn't want you all to be expected it to be out when there's every possibility of it not being today.

30% off code persuaded me to pre-order, against my better judgement after the laughably bad release of FM13. I was surprised to get that email from GMG this morning and even more surprised to put the code in on Steam and see no Install button for love nor money!

Ah well. As long as the game works eventually and we haven't been given incorrect keys then no worries.

I think this is reasonably poor by SI games. They should not be advertising "pre-order and get the beta 2 weeks early" if they cannot specify a date.

Don't start...

There's a key word that has always been present - around. They've never ever specified a date. It's not poor in any way, shape or form.

I got my code for the beta at least, around 6 or 7 days ago.

Suspect we all have to wait until the weekend but who knows?

Patience all.

They didn't advertise that. As forameuss points out, it is important to read all the words in the statement, not just the ones you want to read.
