Point is, for me and it seems, most people, is that they're doing this Karkand map pack concurrently with the game, so by all rights it's using the same budget. So, you pay for that pack when you buy the game. However, they're charging people for it while giving it away for free. Given that shops don't take your money straight away, or a deposit, what incentive does preordering provide to the publishers? It's just a nice number of launch day sales to show off to shareholders. But what about the guy who just walks to the store on launch day and buys a copy? Where's his free map pack? Where's his unfair advantages? He didn't get the preorder discount, too! So that guy has paid more for the game and gets zero extras, thousands of people pay less and get rewarded mightily.

DICE and EA are playing with fire. I'm sure no-one has a problem with preorder incentives, but I'll bet most people have a massive problem with those incentives that give people an advantage, unfairly, in the game.
I don't want to fight you since I do agree with everything you say, but I for one is going to pre-order since I love the series. If the guns were like the pre order guns in BC2 I don't think anybody will notice, since they were so bad, I really mean bad. I used the Thompson once And if the game turns out to be garbage I have the law on my side to get a refund (atleast here in Norway).

It doesnt. OP made his own title (and broke the rules). And yes, the guns are probably bad(as they were in BC2).

I thought the double XP reward was cool with one of the MW games (can't remember which it is)

I'm still on the fence about preordering, but I'm upgrading in September sometime, so I will need something to excuse that

Norway seems like the last bastion of hope in the world. Do you guys like English Immigrants? I learn foreign languages pretty well and I will code for cash

Im still going to buy this game no matter what and im totally not suprised EA is charging for DLC, this game is the first one tailor made for pc in a long time and im supporting it. In this day and age we live in DLC is the norm. Even PC gamers precious valve is charging for stupid hats in TF2, hats!

post #29 of 45
So they have bipods in the game for stability increases? Nice

The whole DLC concept is a bit of an issue...
