EA is already giving a 50 percent discount for Battlefield 5 if you own Battlefield 1 or Battlefield 4, just two weeks after launch! The Battlefield community is not happy about it.
You won't be laughing if you paid full price for it though...
The day where I pay full price for an EA product are long gone. Especially after seeing how they practically gave Battlefield 1 away (with all the season pass content) for free. At this point to pre-order or pay full price is a statement that you trust and have faith in the product being delivered. Unfortunately EA doesn't care who had faith or trust, because what they want are sale numbers for the battlefield IP.
Which I did! Rrrrrrrrrrrr
The real question is.. who's buying EA games full price?? that's easily a form of mental illness
Picked up BF 1 for $5 on origin sale. They gave away the dlc for free too. Never pay day one.
im not dumb enough to do that in the first place so yes it is funny. also they are trying to get more people on the game as everywhere says its doing very poorly. also anything that upsets people who support EA after all this is a good thing. They are part of the problem. Not the solution. I hope they keep doing stuff to make them mad....its not like they are going to actually do anything anyways....if they were then they would have done it by now.
Not only did I pay full price, I bought the digital early for $80. I aint mad though.
Wouldn't you want as many players to buy the game so online has more competition?
Meanwhile everybody is laughing at the people that paid full price for an incomplete game.
excaliburps, I had a hunch and saw your previous comments giving advice about specific issues you've had with Battlefield V. I am sorry you paid full price for the game. Word of warning, when it comes down to games put out by massive publishers like EA and Ubisoft, unless you really like the particular game, and have a ready group of friends to play online, all you have to do is wait for literally a month before huge discounts take effect.
"If you don't like it, don't buy it" ... Well then
Must've taken some pointers from the Diablo immortal devs
A few days ago it was already on sale on PSN, down from 70 to 45. The sales must be terrible if this happens after 2 weeks
That statement and todays results are what I call poetic justice.
LOL. Yep, and now I have this offer on both my PS4 and PC. Own BF4 for PS4 and 1 on PC. Both trigger the sale apparently. Still not going to buy it. I will not support anyone that flat out insults their customers. http://boundingintocomics.c... Oh and who the hell puts focus on the single player campaign in a game that has always focused on multiplayer? https://i.imgur.com/qYSwQbC... So happy Soderlund is out of a job for his nonsense. They even made him delete all his social media posts, lol.
Do they even want Battlefield 1 and BF4 players to buy the game? I mean gamers are sexist pigs right? Do they really want sexist pigs in their game? /s
I don't believe they called all gamers sexist. They told sexist gamers not to buy their game. Seems folks took the message to heart.
Well you are sort of right. People made an illegimate criticism of the game (that there are women in it) and EA properly treated them with scorn. The problem is that, when other people made other, legitimate critcisms of the game, EA tried to paint them with the same brush and just said "no, you're really just sexist." That said, I'm enjoying it as much as the best entries in the series (I've played each entry some other than 2142 and Hardline), and I hope these sales wake people up to an awesome game.
@JEECE " illegimate criticism of the game (that there are women in it)" In a WW2 game. That's not 'illegitimate'. That makes perfect sense. EA and DICE want to do it because of the cosmetics monetization (which is cool if it means free DLC) and to pander to people. They also did it at the cost of the creative aspect of a WW2 game. They're kind of paying for that, because people see through the bullshit. People see through it when you pander just for the sake of it, even when it doesn't make sense in your game world. It feels corporate and forced. Watch, on the other hand, as The Last Of Us 2 successfully pushes diversity and whatnot, and 90% of people will applaud them for it, because it comes from the creatives, and you'll be sure it makes sense in the game world. Sony isn't making them put lesbian characters in because "We're a big franchise and we need to be inclusive" But hey I'm sure that now women are now running around on the frontline, female gamers who previously didn't play this kind will come running to play it. Oh wait, no they won't, because it doesn't make any difference in a game like this (apart from ruining the WW2 theme).
They didn't explicitly call all gamers pigs but they are doubling down on that angle to deflect criticism and as a long term fan of DICE, I find this attitude disgusting.
Got em good eh? Congrats on being on the right side of history lol.
No, they implied that anyone with a criticism was a sexist. Even if they didn't use the term sexist, they pretty much said that any and all criticism was of no concern to them.
it's interesting how you can put aliens in a world war 1 or 2 game and it will be accepted as alternate history/ fiction, but if you put women in the same game, "it's not accurate!"
Actually, he did. He also called gamers stupid. “These are people who are uneducated—they don’t understand that this is a plausible scenario, and listen: this is a game. And today gaming is gender-diverse, like it hasn’t been before. There are a lot of female people who want to play, and male players who want to play as a badass [woman]. “ Source: http://boundingintocomics.c...
Money rules these companies. They gladly do a 360 spin if it earned them 100s of millions of dollars. Unfortunately they don't realize how bad they themselves (ea/dice) acted as well so they should accept the 50% less sales at a far lower average price. There are other games to buy no matter how bad they want the people back who they told to not buy if you don't like.
If you don't like it, maybe you'd buy it at half price? Love how quick these things turn around on publishers sometimes.
You seem sexist, it didn't bother me as i'm not. So you are just outing yourself.
It will be worth peanuts after Christmas then.
Yup at the rate the price is dropping might as well wait to get it for 20 bucks in the deals bin
$20 seems too high.
@RizBiz peanuts seems too high :P
I don’t like it so i will not spend MY TIME on it even if I can get it for free. Understand EA?
Hell of a concept. Thanks for sharing.
It seems like EA is not able to understand such a simple concept.
My hatred for EA started when they bought out Criterion and fired all the people that had worked on Burnout series in order to boaster their NFS franchise and then promptly ruin NFS as well
The story of the project cars developer is even more damning. They actively tried to bankrupt them so they could steal their race engine.
Lol mine started with the fifa player card game that cost $$$
Don't forget visceral games also. They're doing the same thing to Respawn as we speak.
Enigma Dont remind me that Respawn is under the shadow of EA. Now Im depressed. those are good devs and I dont want to see EA roast them alive like they did to visceral, Titanfall 2 was stellar, perhaps my favourite fps this generation... EA is going to ruin them as well no doubt. May this Panda haunt EA until they perish. https://giphy.com/gifs/chee...
BFV is failing so bad, they want to try and sell it in anyway possible.
Anyone who plays full price for a game on Day 1 has no right to complain about any sales. Stop crying.
just like fallout 76 gotta do something to try and move a dead game :/
Seems like us games are finally starting to wake up. That's the only way these companies will learn.
I wonder if they put in social justice warrior crap in just so they can call anyone hating on the game a sexist/racist.
Heh, you're probably right. After all, they need something to do in between sessions of playing with their Newton's Cradles, while sitting in their plush offices thinking of new ways to screw over beloved franchises.
Every move that EA makes to sell this game, makes it even worse.
Still 70$ i own both bf4 and bf1 .. what am i missing here? Just a u.s thing ?
yes because the U.S. is the biggest market for these types of games.
50% of the "Deluxe" edition.
Is this for real? I just booted it up and I didn’t see any of that?
Much preferred aiming in BF3 and 4. Couldn't get into 1 as i'd have liked. Not ever interested in V at half price. I appreciate how BF looks these days, but for me BF3 was alot better with those maps, vechiles and weapons.
Battlefied V0% Off
I'm not buying this!
So people are angry that the price fell on something they own? How childish... If you paid full price for it, it was worth full price to you. They created this deal because apparently it wasn't worth it to enough people. Welcome to capitalism? I'm not seeing the problem here. What someone else pays for the game now literally doesn't impact the original buyers at all. It's just a form of jealousy. Regardless I'm still not buying this train wreck. BF1 and BF4 are both superior products.
tbh it does impact you, in your wallet. I mean if i buy something and that shit is on 50% sale next week i would be pissed and would return it, and rebuy it, since i feel like i've been scammed. i don't agree with being jealous, since that doesn't make sense in my point of view. I feel like i got screwed and that's why i'm pissed not because someone else got it at a lower price. it's like there is a brand new car you want. you buy it and the next day it's on sale. seriously how would you feel? i guess you would be fine with that, but i can say 99% of the people i know would be disgusted with that practice.
sjw killed bf
Oh of course. Sjw's were the one's who gutted out most of the content, produced the confusing and lack luster single player, installed the predatory micro-transaction heavy progression system, put the graphic bugs and match making glitches within the multiplayer, forced EA to have only a handful of unheard of maps and battles at launch, and pushed the game out way to early in order to take advantage of "Early Access" culture. What was the biggest reaction from delicate snowflakes? "There's a woman in my WW2 game." Oh the humanity. Let's put the blame squarely on EA and their garbage business practices, shall we?
You didn't play it, did you?
I don't care if there are women in games, I care when they decided to go all revisionism on WW2 history to suit their agenda. Last time I checked only authoritarians revise history to fit their agenda.
the revel trailer was hit with a super large dislikes to like ratio. long b4 anyone played it. if u remember bf4 launched with just as many problems, but everyone still loved it. Sjw have killed many of our favorite things in nerd culture this is just the latest .
