Even though i prefer battlefield, stop with the dog thing. the doggy getting punched scene was showed way back before ghost even was revealed.

This is just unnecesary bashing, you bf fans know better than that.

If it's 30 gigs, then it'll take 2-3 days for it to finish downloading on my end .-.

Dial up?

10Mbps connections throttled down to 2Mbps cause I used up my 100GB download limit.

Not everyone lives in a country where they can download a gigabyte in a matter of minutes for cheap.

Yeah... definitely understandable on bandwidth limit.

But, just to brag it bit... Here in Japan, I get 100mbs unlimited downloads for about $40 a month. And I live in a rather rural area.

30 gigs would take me like 3 hours I think. Still an awesome idea though.

Why not just order a retail copy then?

For me its cheaper anyway through Game UK to go retail cause of their pre-order bonuses match that of a digital deluxe of Origin minus 2 goldpacks. Saves me some £££

Gotta love fibre optic man my 40mb unlimited con would download that within the hour.

Off Topic: Ha remember when the Vita was called NGP = N4G was like Nintendo Got Pwned and now look at it 3DS outsold the vita heavily! loool fanboys are disgusting.

I was actually contemplating that, but it turned out that my digital copy from Gamersgate is cheaper than buying a physical copy.

But honestly, I'd rather go digital unless I can get a physical copy on launch (or earlier if I'm lucky), and that's kinda unpredictable over here, since most shops favor console games than PC games.
