The blue tint stuff never bothered me as much as other people but having the option to turn it off doesn't seem like a big deal either. It is a really bad precedent to tell the community you're doing something then go back on it, especially when you're an EA subsidiary. Unfortunately this is the only FPS franchise around other than Call of Duty these days.
