i've been on these threads before and it's all the same, if it's BF3 then it's obviously a positive and if it's MW3 it's some money making tool to suck the life out of consumers. this plan is the equivilant of saying to you pay us money and we'll give you epic level gear in WOW and if that happened people would be complaining about the all the noobs who have all this sweet gear but didn't earn it but since they can throw around money they are given the stuff that people had to spend days grinding for. but when this model is applied to BF3, the game that is such a savior to the PC that it needs a 1.5gig patch less than a year after release just to fix the damn thing and a game which sold the majority of it's copies on xbox, then it's a smart idea for the gamer on the go who doesn't have time to invest in the game.
what's next? how about just paying for achievements or buying the next level of the game if you don't like a part of it?
BF3 was a major letdown from a gaming perspective and from a PC sales perspective:
xbox outsold PS3 and PC combined on BF3.
MW3 on xbox outsold every medium of BF3 combined.
throw those numbers in with the glitchy, cheat riddled PC multiplayer and this game didn't save PC gaming, it merely reinforced to publishers that console sells better, no matter what PC players say.
