Good price, cheapest I've found so far for the pre-order. More what a game price should be!

Please don't buy this game people, not on console, not on Origin and not even on a keys website. EA really don't deserve any money for this buggy mess of a pay to win game.

Just a reminder: Don't buy Battlefront 2/EA games

Why is this getting voted cold, cheapest I've found is

£45.85 @ Base

I wouldn't post any deals for BF2 given all the fan backlash regarding the playable characters and how much extra it is going to cost when playing it! They've basically turned it into FIFA.

Didn't EA change their decision of the lockable chars yesterday? It was on the bbc website

But what about the sense of accomplishment?

Probably will be sub-ten quid by Cyber Monday.

Friendly wager- i reckon this will go past -200.

I played the 8 hour trial and I really enjoyed it. Much better than the first one and from what I read online EA have made a U-turn about the length of time it originally took to unlock the main chars (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-41981979)

Given the microtransactions surely this game is free to play?? Oh wait they still want £40 up front?

No.

Haven't made a U-Turn on all the other pay to win mechanics though mate. Don't be fooled by their press releases.

It's a P2W mess

Don't drink and post is my advice. Ignorance (the reaction to this game has been mega-negative- EA's answer is the most down-voted comment on reddit by some margin) won't protect you from the savage hoards either. It isn't personal so don't take it as such.

6 hours long campaign for £40 - no thanks.

I enjoyed the beta. I play other so called pay to win games but don't buy anything other then the game and to be honest I still enjoy them. I have given heat, instead of jumping on the bandwagon as a majority of games have a pay to win system. Most players that pay for fifa player packs or loot crates on are not very good in the first place.
DLC FOR THIS GAME IS GOING TO BE FREE, where no other game offers all dlc for free

True - not that it has an ending by all accounts - that'll come in the future at further cost with season pass/DLC - AAA gaming is so broken.

Maybe yes but all dlc map packs will be free on this game and was confirmed by EA

Not a bad price..

Now just got to find the other £2500 so I can unlock Luke Skywalker.

Someone worked it out yesterday that to unlock everything it would take half a year of non stop playing or $2600.

First it was pay to play... Then pay to win.. Now we have 'Pay to Pay'...!! The VG arena has turned to dog s##t because of this type of practice. Lets hope the Belgian Gaming commission fine EA!

If EA actually do something about this mess, it’ll be the second time Anakin has brought balance to something

It's not you or the price, it's the game itself.

Bah, bah, baaah bahhh bah!

I still believe the free to play mobile gaming market has ruined mainstream gaming. Because gamers want everything for free now (negative reviews demanding more free content!?). I'm not saying this particular pricing model is great for BFII I'm simply saying the gaming community is never happy these days no matter what. Ironically we've got it better than ever especially with how quickly prices drop (PC) and instant downloads etc... The price of games back in the day were relative and they offered a lot less. Anyway I'll get off my soapbox now

I agree with all of that comment. It is true. I played Clash of Clans for 3 years and started to pay for faster upgrades and suffered withdrawal when I stopped. They make a huge amount of money that was and BF2 will be no different.

interview with developer :

Boycott this trash.

IF you really can't resist, at least wait until it hits £15.

This is the death of games if it succeed.

People have had enough of EA, i am still annoyed that they ended burnout, and kept giving us crappy need for speed games.

It is probably the cheapest price for this game, though the price is now reported as £ 41.99 and you failed to mention the 5% discount available through their facebook page.


However as the backlash already indicates until they sort out their pay to win loot boxes nobody should be buying this game. Even though they have temporarily suspended the premium in-game currency, until they announce what it is you have to assume its a bait n switch to make sure they don't lose too many pre-orders and day-1 sales

What kind of idiot buys a full price game in the full knowledge it has freemium mechanics (loot crates)?

Unfortunately it worked for Fifa Ultimate Team and they saw Android doing it and wanted some. I put up with it because Fifa originally caame as a 'full' product and UT came out about 6 months later (almost a DLC, if you will). I thought to myself "let the mugs pay for virtual 'Panini' cards while I play the actual game", until micro-transactions started cropping up.

I had no issue in accelerating the game to get a particular weapon or similar but (as everyone else has said), it's now interrupting the core game play. I refuse to pay for a game that isn't complete without paying extra or being forced to play many hours, in order to play the game I wanted.

It's like buying Monopoly and not being able to buy green or purple cards until you'd played it 50 times (perhaps that analogy only works for me).

I love Battlefield but I will not buy it any more and EA cannot just make piecemeal concessions to do the minimum possible.
