You may or may not recall a few story's i posted such as Battlefield: Bad Company Gun Tax and Pay To Play, No Way in which i had reported EA and Dice had a plan to sell you the better guns for Battlefield: Bad Company as down loadable content and how the gamer world got its panties in a bunch over the news.
Guess the battle is over and for once the gamers win with EA and Dice announcing: "We had some weapons that we were planning to release through various marketing programs, but they were actually flagged there like you were supposed to buy these weapons through Xbox Live Marketplace, and that was a misunderstanding between marketing and us the developers."
So the way to fix this is: "All weapons will be available immediately for collector's edition buyers, and gamers who purchase the standard edition will have to put in the time to reach top level to unlock all weapons."
Now the real deal is when they make comments like this one here: "DICE is built upon the multi player community, and we do listen to what people say out there. When we saw this big uprise ... we just decided that all weapons will be free in the game, and that's how it is now."
Just shows that getting mad and venting to the man wont always work but sometimes you get what you want, it takes public humiliation and bitching to make them listen but its all good now.
Thanks EA and Dice. :)
