Yeah how many suckers actually bought limited edition + the premium membership at full price? The same ones that would fall for Activision's CoD Premium membership schemes. The base game was $10 consistently a year after launch and Premium content was available for $30 multiple times the past fall and this spring. Paying $60 or less for the entire BF3 experience is absolutely worth the money.
Don't blame poor purchase decisions to fault the gameplay...it was obvious they would release a GOTY/Complete Ed of some sort given the amount of DLCs announced way back in early 2012.
All everyone hoping for more BF2 gameplay i think you'll be sorely disappointed...although I wonder if there will be marine/sea combat like 42.
I did get burnt last time on stupid decisions by pre-ordering, which is why I'll be saving my money this time. I actually got a russian origin key for $45 as a pre-order and still felt like I got burnt.
I don't mind being disappointed this go-around, it just means EA will be disappointed in not seeing my money in their bank account. Plenty of other games to play that don't have a 2-year "bend over and take it" model for consumers, while continuing lowering the threshhold of gameplay to cater to the common idiot that can't understand something as simple as command structure or repairing a tank. Don't worry, we'll add vehicle regen and completely remove command structure.
And if the gameplay wasn't enough to make me frustrated, the supernova sun and blue tint succeeded at giving me unbearable headaches after short periods of play.. and I have no problems with any other game in existence.
