Battlefield 3: The Pre-order DLC BOYCOTT

GP blogger, SizzlinKola writes, "As you may or may not know, EA has released an exclusive DLC named the Physical Warfare Pack. It comes with exclusive weapons including the Type 88 machine gun with bipod, the SKS sniper rifle flash suppressor and armor-piercing ammo for the DAO 12. In addition to these exclusive weapons, the Physical Warfare Pack also includes the Back to Karkand map pack. It has four classic maps from Battlefield 2 which includes Strike at Karkand, Gulf of Oman and the Sharqi Peninsula, all remastered. This means that the game will become divided. People who buy the Physical Warfare Pack separately from the game will have an unfair advantage in-game. They'll have all these powerful, possibly game-breaking weapons and mods while everyone else is suffering with their defaults."

What the hell do you guys care? You're probably getting a review copy from EA and won't pay a dime for the game. Stop acting like you represent the consumer when game publishers send you free product to review.

Also, this couldn't be more factually inaccurate. EA clarified this morning that contrary to your ignorant report, the pack WILL NOT give players an unfair advantage.

I'm like 99% sure that it will come to the stores, but a few months after launch. they're just saying that so that you preorder the game.

Actually DICE usually gives people stuff for free after awhile. All of the BF2 expansions are free and all of the exclusive weapons for BC1 are now free.

TheBeast2683d ago

Lost the ability to report eh urmomlol.

Rainstorm812683d ago

Smells like alot of COD fans, that werent getting the game anyway....

Besides if you are soooo scared about the so called "advantage" just go out and preorder the game.

The pre-order pack isn't available everywhere yet and only specific retailers carry them.

That's the problem here. Not all pre-orders get the exclusive weapons, and there's no other way of obtaining them.

Lol internet nerds on the rampage

N4GAddict2683d ago

I'm not buying BF3 due to the them splitting DLC exclusively... it's ridiculous.

Forbidden_Darkness2683d ago

And COD doesn't? Even so, you don't have to buy any of the DLC if you don't want to, simple as that...

Emilio_Estevez2683d ago (Edited 2683d ago )

Don't care, I'm getting the game and wouldn't use those weapons anyway. Rifles all day.

We all know how boycott's go now anyways, no one will follow through.

Shackdaddy8362683d ago

LMG always sucks in BF games anyway. No one uses it. IDK why people are making such a fuss over it...

Emilio_Estevez2683d ago

Some people will complain about anything(see free psn games). I don't care about this whatsoever, they will end up being for sale on the internet and eventually as paid DLC anyway.
