Don't doubt there are people who pre-order just to get that. EA wins again.

I personally won't pre-order until I know all the game packages available. I heard there is a yet to be "officially" announced retail premium package called "drone" something.

I could care less about the beta, i'd rather play the game when it's ready, so i'm keeping my eye out for the best deal available (which won't be origin).

Don't doubt there are people who pre-order just to get that. EA wins again.

In the end, if a person wants to pre-order, its because they want the game.

Contrary to OCN belief, the reason people buy games is because they want to play them.

If a person wants to play Battlefield 4, they will be buying it if they can. Either before launch or after. Either before bugs or after.

I don't see how the devs would not "win again" just because people who want to play and know they want the game, don't pre-order, but end up buying on day one anyway (you know who you are).

Even if there are bugs, the people who don't buy games because of bugs (relatively tiny amount of people) would just buy the game afterwards anyway, unless they weren't actually that interested in the game in the first place.


Then there's the fact that people have their own opinions and perception of value and are entitled to their own choices etc etc etc.

EA need to do the Premium thing on release. I will onyl buy this if I cna get "BF4 + PRemium on release. No CHANCE am I buying the game, getting the DLC and then wasting money by getting the Premium pack and getting the same DLC more than once.

Please, I'm literally BEGGING you not to pre-order it. Do it for the sake of the entire gaming industry.

THAT is a fantastic review of day-one DLC and preordering.

If you actually watched the video, tb said, its okay to preorder the game if you were plan on getting it anyways, the guy who you quoted already said he was a huge bf fan. He was mainly saying don't preorder if your doing it for some lame preorder bonus like a gun or something stupid.

Actually if you preorder you get a free premium for BF4; again lies and hate spread by EA haters.

You et the equivalent of the B2K pack, which is lame. I want a Premium Edition on release or I'm simply going to refuse to buy until there is one. I'm not getting caught out with that crap again.

And he's saying don't preorder and think long and hard before you do, because ALL PREORDERS are supporting day-one DLC and lame incentives.

+1

I pre-oredered the game NOT because I want to feed money to EA, or ruin the "morals" and "ethics" of the gaming industry or whatever. I pre-ordered it because I'm definitely buying the game and seeing as how you get an extra expansion pack for free if you pre-order, seemed like a good deal to me.

I want the game, so I pre-ordered. I don't care where the money goes as long as I get my game.

An I trust DICE so..
