wasnt that in BC2 as well for consoles... BF3 will be tied to orgin, so i dont see how u can sell a used game via that. So probably still console only pass.

Is anyone even slightly surprised? If there was ever going to be a game that would capitalise with an online pass, it's BF3.
Wow. What about existing customers that want to create new accounts? Are we going to be charged too? I have made multiple accounts in BF2 and 2142 under the same cdkey and can't imagine being charged extra to "unlock a slot". It doesn't cost them $20 to add a new database entry for your account. Ask anyone who runs a forum. Charging money for something that actually costs .000000000001 cent overall is money-grubbing.

Oh consoles only, deffo. But online passes are still a relatively new invention, and I would expect them to sell a lot of BF3 online passes.

On the one hand, I agree with ya. But it also galls me that devs make nothing off of second-hand game sales and the retailer takes it all, despite being the middleman.

I think it's OK as long they don't charge full...like 5 or 10 bucks would be fine in my opinion

i say just buy a new copy and be happy i doubt any of us will be buying used versions so honestly i really don't care what they do..

Heard a rumor that the Alpha for BF3 was made 16 months ago. And we were playing that specific version for the Alpha. Apparently the E3 demo played was something more developed, than what we had. Rumor= True or false?

I was surprised by everyone's high performance, you can see my rig I was only getting ~30 FPS at full GPU usage of 1 GPU at AUTO (high) 1920x1200. 280 drivers. I normally get Max graphics at 60FPS 40%/40% GPU usage in BC2. I mean it's not optimized, etc. But was surprised at everyone else getting good FPS.

That seems extremely unlikely to me. The whole point of the alpha is to test out the game on a variety of clients and under stressful conditions. There's no point in testing a 16-month old version of the game, they would use the newest they had.

That would mean that the version we were playing was made a month after BC2 was released...

as unlikely as it is i could be tempted to believe it... i mean the military had GPS in use for how many years before it was released to the public???

but still it doesn't make sense from a business perspective to use a version THAT old newer=better
