The physical warfare pack yes, but not the Karkand map pack.

I just really don't want to see DICE follow the Activision business plan.

It isn't a threat, it's just the way I feel, but if they charge for map-packs, I will uninstall on the spot and never buy from them again.
Can't be expected to swallow this crap anymore. More then a decade of having this stuff free and made by fans, then being made to buy it or miss out... Stupid...

DICE have never made map packs, they make expansions, and proper DLC...

Vietnam for BF:BC2 was cheap, and it gave you new weapons, maps and nationalities.

It will be the same with BF3 and the Strike at Karkand expansion, remodeled maps, weapons, vehicles, its gonna have it all.

I for one believe in DICE, and it urks me so when everyone comes up with their little boycotts over misread articles, or on pure fantasy!

Cheers,

Ishi

I think you misunderstood me.
By no means am I boycotting anything, or trying to rally a boycott. And I'm not jumping to conclusions, I was simply asking what the deal is with this pre-order business and how it will affect my self and future buyers.

I bought Vietnam DLC for Bad Company 2 and believed it to be totally worth it.
Simply just expressing my concerns as there have been many companies I've had faith in not to follow that path, and evidently, they do.
Just don't want to see it happen with DICE.

It's the same thing they've been doing since Battlefield 1942.

Quick Question:

If you buy the retail copy of the game, can you play without the disc? Or do you always need the disc?

Not like I'll trust an EA Chat representative for such information, but if it does come to Steam after release, I might consider re-buying it in Christmas just for having it on Steam.

Not sure if I should ask this here but, I pre-ordered BF3 through EA's Origin. So, let's all get friended up..

Origin name: djberanek

Game on!!
