I am not on the fence really...I just do not like to pre-order a game. I am continuously laughing at all the whiners who pre-order a game and then come to find that it is a game they do not like. I am not too worried about BF3 being a bad game, but I still do not want to give up my stance on pre-orders...not even for BF3.

And think not pre-ordering it is giving into their greed even more. Get the map pack free or pay $15 for it. I might as well get some free stuff out of them.

Woops, four maps, much better now...
More incentive to push people to be day one buyers.
My pre-order is already in. $14.99 is steep for a maps players will needed to play on various servers.

They're trying very hard to get as many people as possible to preorder, probably to get as many people as possible to buy through Origin before it's eventually made available on Steam?

I'll wait until the 22nd of October before I pre-purchase.

Or it could be that they can't give out mod tools because of all of the licensed software they use with Frostbite 2.0.

Not bad, VietNam expansion was priced the same and I loved it. Back to Karkand is insane so this ain't a bad deal. But, I've preordered so I don't worry about this either way.

Karkand was an amazing map. I would pay 50 bucks to play it again with the Bf3 engine. And 15 bucks is very little money.
Worse than crack.

I pesonally hate mw2 and only ever played cod4 and didnt like WAW either but. They charge 15$ for 4 maps and everyones dosen't care but if Activision does it people get mad? They just released another map pack today with 4 maps and some stuff and its free for people that bought the pre ordered or prestige/hardened edition.

I hate when they do it like this all it does is cause less people playing some maps and gives people things to complain about..
Darn I should of bought the lifetime battlefield membership when I had the chance, hope I atleast get a senior discount someday.

Isn't most of the the CoD map packs just different game modes? This is entirely new maps....
