More Details on Battlefield: Bad Company Emerge

IGN writes: "After speaking with spokesperson for EA, IGN has learned a few more details on the intended pricing structure for the weapons in Battlefield: Bad Company.

makes me want to pass on this game, any idiot that would buy this game and then give away more money for weapons that should be included in the game is a beggar to the demise of gaming.

they say that the "bought" weapons won't have impact on gameplay, but i doubt that statement. im not gonna buy them, no way.

If you buy any EA games, wait until you can find it used so EA gets no money from the sale, and for gaming's sake don't buy the useless weapons. EA are bad for gaming, so let's not support their efforts. At least until they get a clue and trim their fat instead of trying to take our meat and potatoes.
