Early DLC isn't extra money...it's early money.

That would work better if you had to download the content later because it was an afterthought.

What we have here is Disc Locked Content

It seams every time an EA publisher comes out with a good game EA forces the studio to bog it down with tones of DLC and stupid pre-order items.

I mean just look at Mass Effect 2 which I paied almost 90$ (including tax) for the collectors edition, and then if I bought all the DLC that price tag would come close to 200$. IMO at least the early DLC should have been in the original game, its like they had the game and then just riped out half the content to make DLC.

Now with BF3, a game I really like and will most likely buy it when it comes out (possibly preorder) will be the exact same thing. 3 DLC packs at 15$ a piece is 45$, the game already costs 60$.

Just going off my experience with Mass Effect 2 I'm not sure how I feel about BF3 anymore, its blatantly obvious how much their going to milk us with this game.

But at least we still have Bethesda and Skyrim to look forward too.

EA/Dice has bills to pay just like everyone else, there's nothing wrong with them wanting to get a head start on revenue to pay those bills by offering a few weapons to those who pre-order.

Like I keep saying, $60 bucks and change is nothing for a game that you're going to enjoy for hundreds of hours over the next few years. Pre-ordering is the LEAST you could do for them taking on such a massive project.

the physical warfare kit.

It is entirely different from the back to karkand DLC. Which includes 4 maps, guns exclusive to the mappack( who knows if they will be available on other maps yet) and exclusive vehicles.

DLC needs to stop. But it won't. And we all know why: The majority of consumers are impatient; hence, they will pay. So long as the majority is willing to pay, and buy and buy again, then these companies will continue with these shady practices.

I wish we could get back to the time when they tried to release a game that was as good as it possibly could be, rather than slicing it up into shareware and making us pay through the nose.

man it is hot in here! flame suit on!

Anyway, I don't even care if some people have an "advantage" I'm gonna preorder and be happy to have this game over the current gen of engines and dev teams who don't have original thinking, at least DICE has that going for them.

Idc really. Already pushcased mine.

Ppl who enjoys BF bought their game the day it pre-launched.

NO KIDDING! I remember when battlefield 2 was released, we got an expansion and 2 booster packs. Wait a second, how dare they cut up battlefield 2 and deliver it in slices also. I am going to start a boycott on battlefield 2 for their dastardly practices, which lead to BF3 having the same thing.

ALL ON BOARD FOR THE BATTLEFIELD 2 BOYCOTT, NO ONE DLC'S ME!
