Here we have it. I have been a firm believer of retailer specific pre-order content since day one. I mean as a company why not? it extends your sales, your revenue, and not only that, it also garners you exclusives that no other retailer has.

Looks like gamers are starting to wise up finally and are threatening to protest the Electornic Art’s upcoming Battlefield 3 game.

Followers and gamers were outraged when EA announced that some of the games DLC will only be available specifically to certain retailers as pre-order incentives, and that most of us have to pay for the content. To set aside confusion Karl Magnus Troedsson, general manager of DICE, has posted a letter to gamers that all of the content from the Physical Warfare Pack DLC will be available to everyone for free later this year.
