I won't be buying DOD retail, but I'll be glad to finally see some non-broadband newbie players flock to DOD. One of the things about these realism themed games is that in reality, most soldiers didn't have the fortune to learn from their fatal mistakes. As such, these realistic games have very unrealistically skilled veteran players running around everywhere as if they were Special Forces troops, instead of 18 yr old kids out of Nowhere, USA that we should be seeing. In other words: I'm gonna look like a GOD compared to the masses. LOL.
But seriously, yeah they should load the DOD retail CD with LOADS of extras, like how WW2 flight sim 1942 Pacific Air War did a decade ago. That sim came with a VERY cool and informative multimedia attachment. Full of video footage, voiceover profiles of the various planes, maps of the battles. It's too bad games don't do this anymore. DOD would be great if it packaged History Channel documentaries and stuff.
Also, it should put loads of custom player maps, models, and sounds on there. Most of my DOD directory is custom stuff.
