EA has denied claims that gamers who pre-order Battlefield 3 will gain an advantage in play over those who don't.

"If you went to our press conference, you saw the PS3 footage and the Xbox footage"

wait, WHAT?!

I think they mean the behind the scenes stuff and not the main conference.

yea i know...the key word was "press" but how come none of them were saying anything about how the console versions looked?

are available in game afterwards to everyone. Also, is the back to karkland thing a preorder bonus? If so, why not just include it with the game?

The BackToKarkand expansion is something they're working on, but isn't likely to be finished by BF3's launch, so it will be released later.

It is an expansion and thus, must be bought, just like BC2 Vietnam. EA decided to give the expansion for free to pre-orders, which is quite a nice deal.

As for this announcement, it seems EA doesn't realize that having a varied arsenal IS an advantage.

How is a flash-suppressor not "overpowered"? It'll be a huge advantage, especially in night maps. If you don't want to give out overpowered stuff then give them camos or something, not guns and special-ammo with unique stats.
