[BFblog] Your questions on Physical Warfare Pack and Back to Karkand pre-order items - Page 8  

post #71 of 94
I never understood why people whine about pre-orders, if you're really that butt-hurt, buy it a day or two before the game is released. Pretty sure that $50 isn't going to make any difference within a day and they give you plenty of time to put $50 away to buy it then. If you were to get a store retail copy you can even pre-order and make payments on it.

I understand it's a cheap way to ring people of their money, but if you really want the game, I'm more than sure you have some way to get it before the pre-order is up, regardless of your age.

I'm sorry you think I mismanage my life. Maybe you should stop arguing with me and go manage your own.

I would argue that spending this kind of time arguing about a pre-order bonus for a game should have significantly less priority over doing job searches to a person who cannot afford to clothe themselves if a sock gets lost in the wash, but thats just me.

But then you said earlier that you're not actually one of those people you were trying to make a case for who are in such a dire situation and couldn't save to buy BF3 and that you were just exaggerating/fabricating a scenario.

Now you are saying that you cant save twenty something pence a day to buy BF3.

What exactly are you attempting to do here my friend?

I was trying to make it clear that I wasn't in such dire straits that I was on welfare you dolt, not that I wasn't in a bad position. I didn't want people to think I was worse off than I was, that's why the disclosure.

As for wasting time arguing, well, look who's talking, you've been arguing this far longer than I have.

As for job searching, yes, I'm doing that right now, I'm writing a cover letter as we speak, it's called multi-tasking, maybe you should learn how.

My attempts are to say that not everyone can get this due to circumstances beyond their control, and as such I don't like exclusives, that's all I'm trying to say. I would like it if EA didn't have them at all, but made them available later.

Sorry, Pyro, he pre-ordered it, which is why it's exclusive to him and not you.

So you're not so bad that you dont need to be on welfare, but you cant save 40 cents a day?

How does that work out?

That sounds like a prime welfare candidate to me if ever I heard of one?

Why are you not on welfare? Wouldn't it be quite beneficial for someone who cant save 40 cents a day to be on welfare?

I dont like pre-order exclusives, I am 100% against paid DLC etc so this isn't me just straight up disagreeing with everything you say, its just that you seem to be going in circles around yourself.

If you cant afford something, you just cant afford it. That is the way the world works. I wanted many things as a child. My parents couldn't afford most stuff that the majority of kids got. I had to accept it then and you have to accept it now.

You can complain all you like that you cant afford it, but the real solution to that complaint is to put yourself in a position you can afford it, not to ask for what you want to be made available to you on your terms.

You're never going to get anywhere with that attitude.

Yea I really don't get why all the debate. I understand that he can't afford the $60 up front NOW. I understand he doesn't like the idea of getting extra content for pre-ordering, that other people who buy the game later can't have. But if he plans to buy the game like 2 months after release, he just needs to accept the fact that he can't have the extra content and it's done legally and rather morally as they're announcing this offer FOUR months ahead of the game's release. It's like ANYTHING else that has special deals. Buy before June 31st and you get a bonus gift free! Sometimes special offers even last just 24 hours. If anything 4 months is a ridiculous generosity.

I also just realized Amazon has BF3 listed as supporting XP.

and there is no guarantee that it wont be available later. The term exclusive doesnt mean they cant or wont do it later. Halo was an xbox exclusive.

Hell the Acog on the g3 and m14 were removed from the game, and the devs made it seem like there wasnt a chance in hell of getting them back, and then magically much later, they put them back.

I think that is a typo. I have seen multiple instances, including several developers at E3 say that XP and directX 9 is out.
