In all seriousness those are nothing to get upset about. I'd rather there not be any exclusive weapons, and that all maps be released for free, but i'm not going to cancel my pre-order because i get to kill these people with the lowly normal weapons.
Yes, I know those are the items you get in the DLC, but, the big deal is, are those items unlockable later in the game or are they exclusive to the DLC buyers. Because that's a real problem and EA are bastards for doing that.
Apparently EA went ahead and did it without DICE's permission. They did the same for BC1 but there was so much protest against it that they pulled it. I wouldn't mind that happening again.

So are they idiots or not?

Yes those are exclusives and buying them in those shops is the only way to get them.

Yes they're idiots for cancelling their orders over it.
Stupid, stupid decision by EA.

So you want people to protest the DLC (for you) but think it's stupid to boycott? how exactly do you want them to be pressured?

Honestly I don't care about those early access or exclusive weapons.

Look at BFBC2, it has an M1 Garand which was totally useless in my opinion, I never even used it.

If the game doesn't come out on Steam before the open beta, then I'll just pre-order it in Amazon UK with the Limited Edition and forget about other Limited Edition versions.

I think it is a very brave move to go DX10/11 mode on PC and it is so next gen. they are so ahead in time just like crysis 1 was. love it.

Its the way to ensure the game will last, needs to be ahead of its time, so the majority of people will come into their prime BF3 playing in 1-2years

Just spoke with EA today, Those who pre-ordered will still receive the physical warpack.

so re-cap: Anyone who pre-ordered before the release of the physical warpack pre-order, will still receive the physical warpack with their pre-order ;P

Basically everyone who pre-orders this game will recieve any and all DLC/extras that come with this game on release

On the phone or email? Proof would be nice and help to calm some people down. EA/DICE needs to get their marketing strategies sorted out if this is true. They probably saw tens of thousands of cancellations.
