i accepted it, i even told you how i would feel if i were in the same position. The fact that you and i would do 2 different things in the same position just means we dont see eye to eye on the subject.

we even provided ways to get the exclusive content if it means so much to you.

I see this as a reward for being loyal to the series. Instead of some bandwagon hopper that will happen when people realize just how awesome the game is. People will be leaving in droves from mw3 to this game. They will miss out on on a free map pack and a couple free guns.

the donut shop was giving away donuts to the first 50 customers the other day, i didnt know and didnt show up early. i didnt get free donuts, but other people did. I didnt throw a fit, i payed for my donuts, even though the donuts i wanted had already been eaten, so i couldnt get the exclusive donuts, that i really wanted. No ones fault but my own. They had given plenty of notice of the free donuts.

0 punishment going on here, only rewarding people who see fit to support a product prior to release. Now if it were something like a bunch of maps, and 12 or so guns, then maybe i would take issue.

To make matters worse, he already admitted that he actually fabricated/exaggerated his description of his current situation and that he's not actually one of these so called people who (by his description) shouldn't even be able to afford their own clothes, let alone a pc/console to play BF3 to begin with.

The more excuses I read, the more baseless and silly they seem to get, which in turn just makes the whole boycott look worse on the whole.

Surely you should be able to choose when to profit from a limited deal from any commercial entity as and when you see fit?

Why should they be able to do a limited offer like that?

What if you only wanted to eat a doughnut an hour after the offer ended?

Surely they should violate everyone who made an effort to take advantage of the same deal you refused within the exact same time frame you had, just to please you?

Why are they punishing you?

Dont they owe it to you to wrap their promotions around your personal life?

I dont understand

Just to point out, I never said I was boycotting the game, just that I can't afford it, which is true. I have $700 to my name, and I still have to pay college bills next month, so yeah, I need a job and can't afford the stinking game, nor to put aside .40 cents a day or anything!

Well dude I'm sorry to hear that, but I mean... I'm pretty sure everyone here is thinking the same way I am. If you can't save 40 cents a day until release day you must be doing pretty bad. I get more than that in change for my lunch which is usually $7.xx-$8.xx and I hand in a 10. I'm not saying it's the route YOU should take, but if I were in that situation I'd cut my internet for 2 months if it meant being able to afford BF3, which I do want so very much.

I get internet free with my rent.

Your argument is still invalid. Where is the money for my lunch coming from? As I said, I'm unemployed. Any spare change is not spare change, it's money that is going to pay bills.

what about mine.

you have several months to change your fortune, or pawn something also. Sorry about your luck, i truly hope it changes. Unless you are a bum who mooches like my brother in law and can get a job, but wont. I will assume you arent like him though.

Sorry, but you need to stop posting on this forum, stop stressing about a game you wouldn't be able to afford in the first place (regardless of pre-order bonuses or not, which again invalidates your whole argument) and go sort your life out.

You dont seem to be able to see what the real problem is here.

You cant save the equivalent of about twenty something pence a day, you're spending every piece of money you have to your name on bills, yet you still have time to complain about it on an internet forum.

If your situation is as dire as you say it is, then as I have said so many times before.

Forget Battlefield and sort yourself out.

The problem is not that Battlefield pre order bonuses arent going to be available to someone who cant save 40 cents a day.

The problem is that you cant save 40 cents a day.

Great... now I want Donuts but not just any donut, I want exclusive donuts... If I boycott donut stores until I get my exclusive donut then I donut get ANY donuts and well that would just be a tragedy I like donuts.
