Hope that clears up everything for everyone. Sucks they are charging 60 bucks on other sites for non-le versions as it should be 50.

EA pissing off customers since 1982.
you need to post that site where you bought it for $30 thats what you needa do

Why would you make that up? EA has explained multiple times that all pre-orders are LE and come with Back to Karkland and eventually get the warfare pack for free. The only thing we don't get is the costumes that Sweden gets.

I have had D2D and another site tell me that the LE version is only available on Origin and they do not carry it. If it doesn't say it is LE it is not LE. D2D doesn't have LE...

Has BF3 for 30 bucks.... not LE, but makes up for having to buy the stuff later on. Plus is a reputable site as I have bought a few games from there.

I can understand cdkeystore not having pre-release but EA said all pre-orders are limited edition and include Back to Karkland. I have a feeling they're just going to buy the game on release day in the countries where pirating is rampant (RUS,PRC) which is cheaper and obviously not a wouldn't be a pre-release.

Q: Do I have to choose between Back to Karkand and the Physical Warfare Pack as my pre-order bonus?

A: No. There is no way you can pre-order Battlefield 3: Limited Edition and not end up with the Back to Karkand expansion pack at no extra charge. On top of this, select retailers all over the world will carry the Physical Warfare Pack. Exact details for other countries and retailers will be announced at a later date.

that quote says all LE versions will have karkand, it doesn't say all preorders are LE..

Limited Edition = Back to Karkland. Pre-release = Limited Edition. You can't a buy non-limited edition unless you get it from some cdkeysite that's certainly not an authorized reseller by EA in which case they're not buying the game for you before launch day making it obviously not a pre-release edition.

Warfare Pack and Spec-act are the only other options you can choose and they aren't related to Limited Edition. They're simply due to where you buy it geographically.

Q: Is the Back to Karkand expansion pack exclusive to pre-orders?
A: No. You can also buy it separately if you do not pre-order Battlefield 3.

Anyone who pre-orders Battlefield 3 will receive our first themed expansion pack at no extra charge.

To receive Battlefield 3: Back to Karkand at no extra charge, all you need to do is pre-order Battlefield 3.

Warfare Pack and Spec-act are the only other features and aren't related to Limited Edition.
i agree with that. but there's nothign written saying that ALL preorders are LE.
the one from gamestop amazon and origin are all LE.

^says nothing about being LE and im sure if i searched i could probably find more. i just think you need to make sure it says LE before you considering preordering it..

Whether they want to play word games and call it LE or not and I highly doubt D2D isn't LE unless they're doing some weird thing where they buy the games at release which is cheaper and taking your money now, all pre-orders get Back to Karkland. Why is this problem only on shady sites like cdkeystore and D2D?
