No, you shouldn't cancel your order. You are all set.
The only thing some people are complaining about is that the people who pre-order will have some weapons and ammo that will not be available AFTER the game release, even if you buy the DLC of Kar. Their argument is that this is unfair.

In my opinion, they still have plenty of time to pre-order and that way they will get the DLC and the weapons for free, as opposed to paying for the DLC. I dont see what the big deal is.

I'm trying to wait for the phsyical warfare pack to come out in NA but if not o well. I would probably only use that shotgun for a bit and then move onto another gun.

The people complaining somehow think that package also includes an aimbot that will somehow magically make all people who buy it gods at the game.

Well...preorder the game then. It's a PC lead platform FPS game...no reason NOT to preorder. If you were going to preorder ANY game on PC this year, it should be BF3.

Thank you for clearing this up. The news post, which is now closed due to excessive flaming and such failed to really explain the issue clearly IMO. The article was pretty biased and I for one think that there is SO much time left to pre-order, then pre-order! So what is the big deal people? If you're gonna GET the game, why not pre-order it? For me personally I will pre-order for my PS3 copy (for clan play) and might do the same for PC (I'm not in a clan on PC).

Unless you play PC only and don't care about physical media, and still don't pre-order, IDK what is wrong with you.

Wait to pre-order until the companies where you can get the extra pack is announced.

Quote:
Q: Is the Physical Warfare Pack available in all regions, or just in the UK?
A: It will be available worldwide at select retailers. It was first announced in the UK. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date.

Q: Will Physical Warfare Pack imbalance the game?
A: The three exclusive items in the Physical Warfare Pack were specifically chosen not to be overpowered or imbalance or break the game in any way.

Q: Why do I want the Physical Warfare Pack?
A: Owning these items will give you a more varied arsenal, but it will not give you a significant advantage on the battlefield.

Q: Is the Back to Karkand expansion pack exclusive to pre-orders?
A: No. You can also buy it separately if you do not pre-order Battlefield 3. Back to Karkand will be available the exact same date after the launch of Battlefield 3 no matter if you pre-ordered or buy it separately.

Q: When will the Back to Karkand expansion pack be released?
A: We have not yet announced the Back to Karkand expansion pack release date.

Q: How much does the Back to Karkand Expansion pack cost?
A: We have not yet announced a price. However, it will be included in the Limited Edition at no extra charge.

Q: Do I have to choose between Back to Karkand and the Physical Warfare Pack as my pre-order bonus?
A: No. There is no way you can pre-order Battlefield 3: Limited Edition and not end up with the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge. On top of this, select retailers all over the world will carry the Physical Warfare Pack. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date.

Q: Why do you offer pre-order bonus items?
A: Because we believe in rewarding our core fanbase with special offers -- such as giving them the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge.
Basically, EA decided to partner with certian retailers and provide exclusive content that will not be found anywhere else. You cannot unlock this content if you buy the game at a retailer that doesn't have this deal.

You will lose these weapons if you do not get the special DLC recently announced:

Exactly

It's up to you to decide whether you're okay with it or not.

That's a shame, but I should be ok at GameStop I would presume. Origin is a definite go also.
