BF3 Preorder Backlash

There's a user-created poll on the EA Forums reflecting unhappiness at plans to offer exclusive weapons as preorder bonuses for Battlefield 3, fearing the impact this will have on game balance in the upcoming military shooter sequel. As of this writing 94% of respondents say these exclusives are a bad idea, compared with 3% who feel it's a good idea. As a result, this post on reddit is attempting to coordinate a boycott to protest this.

I think Valve disagrees - as well as the other many many digital groups opening their doors and shipping games digitally. I think there has been a huge surge in the past few years of pc games.

NPC (we all know how reliable they are) aren't down all that much, and they have no idea about digital.

I think you missed where I used the word retail I meant retail as in physical retail, brick and mortar stores. I know full well PC digital is alive and thriving, I've made that argument many times on here.
