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.

How about this...if you are so worried about this...buy the damn preorder....It is not rocket science...if you care that much about the game to cry about it, go put 5 bucks down on it... there! Just so people know, preorders is a way to tell how much interest is in a title. This can lead to devs being able to spend more time on a giving game before the pubs rush the title. See, the publishers are not evil, they just do not like losing money. For example, if one of you left wingers out there put up a huge amount of money to get a game done,would you want to lose it? Did not think so...Go preorder and stop your crying...

Do you get that a lot of people don't necessarily want to commit to gaming franchises as if they were subscriptions? Some people actually want to be like normal consumers. I don't normally get a directive from my butcher to preorder a huge amount of meat otherwise I can't get the same quality or quantity as everyone else in the future.

Preorders should be based on making the consumer desire the game instead of denying them features on the disk for the sake of the publishers bottom line. What's next? At what point does it become too much for you? Is it ok if its guns and maps but not ok if its part of the singleplayer game? Where do you draw the line? I'll let you in on a secret: there is no line to EA. As long as there is money to be had there is no such thing as a bottom too low to be plumbed.
