A point of clarification for all of our Battlefield fans. We will unlock the contents of the Physical Warfare Pack to all Battlefield 3 players later this year – for free. Read on for more details on this and Back to Karkand.
Good. Can we please stop complaining now?
Never, unless the video game industry quit being such greedy f***s with their nickel & dime tactics. Pigs will fly first.
Breaking news: Activision just apologized to their COD fans and clarified that dedicated servers will be available later this year!! Yea, one can dream..... :|
I kind of wish they all just did like Sucker Punch with Infamous 2 Hero Edition and gave you all the DLC. I would rather pay more up front and support them than get a little here and there down the line for $5 or $10 a hit.
thanks, raaaaaageeeeee paid off
I'm not angry anymore, this is all that we wanted, as long as the exclusive items were released later then I have no problem, THANKS DICE!
Was this their plan before the outrage?
clearly not...this is definite reactive spin. But hey... I am ok with the new plan. Now I can pre-order where I want.
Spin or not, it's at least good for the consumer.
I wouldn't put it past them, this sort of thing is done all the time. Release some bad news and let it sit before swooping in and "apologizing" while clearing things up. The news isn't especially fantastic as it is but compared to the original press release it seems like a godsend. If they just announced it with all of the same information included in this announcement, the reaction wouldn't be as bad but it still wouldn't be very good at all. But with this strategy, it seems like a glimmer of sincerity. Just remember kiddies, take news for what it is and not for what it can be compared to.
Nope, it wasn't. They'd originally confirmed that it was pre-order exclusive. They changed their minds. Who said complaining gets you nowhere?
Now let's put the pressure for having back to karkand pack FOR EVERYONE FREE
just pre-order the game, simple.
Finally ... kids will stop whining
Kids will never stop whining.
Indeed, the industry can take their nickel & dime schemes and shove it up their @$$.
Everyone who cried, yelled and screamed are now happy little gamers :)
Gen y spoilt brats win again next time things dont go my way ,im going to try stamping my feet and and crying really seems to work for the stinking moles.
You must work for EA, right?
Just a question: Does DICE have some kind of exclusive contract with Sony?
They are owned by EA, so no contract that anyone knows of.
Thank goodness. They probably didn't want to let this be known at first since some might not care. But if it was like how it was originally thought, that you get a weapons and 2 mods that other players can NEVER get, obviously people will preorder to just try and be on a level playing field. Who wants to play a game where others have more weapons that you can never earn in the game? Glad to hear this, though it could have been in a disclaimer or something at the bottom of the ads to avoid all this.
Called it. Twas obvious.
I was worried about the PWP before, now that this is cleared up, I'm not worried anymore, BF3 here I come!
