BF2 Hotfix Coming - Downgrade Suggested

A new Battlefield 2 Community Update has a status report on plans for a hotfix for memory leak issues with Battlefield 2 version 1.01. Although the site states "EA and DICE are committed to getting a fix for v1.01 as soon as we possibly can," in the meantime they are suggesting that users downgrade by reinstalling the original unpatched version of the game:

HOTFIX for Battlefield 2 v1.01 Coming Soon
First off, a HUGE thanks to all of you who emailed me in regards to the memory leak found in the update we released earlier this week (v1.01). Your emails found their way to our production team and they’re in the process of evaluating what needs to be done in order to get this fixed. In the meantime, and since the 1.01 update is causing memory leakage on some systems, we recommend that you reinstall the game and NOT the v1.01 update we released earlier this week.

Reinstalling Battlefield 2 will not affect your in-game medals or ranked server statistics. EA and DICE are committed to getting a fix for v1.01 as soon as we possibly can and will continue to keep you informed through this web space in the coming days.

NOTE: If you installed and are running the newer server files (Win and Linux versions) we made available earlier this week, please revert those as well. We found that those files had the same issues with memory leaks as did the v1.01 update. You can download the older versions here.

This makes no sense, consoles dont have a fraction most pc games do. Since when didn't they have publishers?

Consoles get less buggy titles because the publishers have to submit their games to Sony, Microsoft and Nintendo for testing to pass their QA which is far more strict that the publishers own QA. Without approval the game will not get the console license branding and be permitted to be sold.

When I worked for EA we had several titles fail Sony certification for the Playstation and be sent back. EA pushing out incomplete products is nothing new...it's just alot easier for them to do with PC titles since there is no governing body for QA control.
