    If they have vehicles that would make things interesting.

    Oh sure, you'll get to drive a tank...after purchasing the unlock for it via a series of microtransactions. Then you can drive around mowing down all the hapless people running vanilla soldiers with just pistols who play for free rather than plunk down $50.

    Yeah, it probably won't be ridiculous like that, but Play 4 Free is a concept that has seen abuse. We'll see when it comes out I guess.

    Provided the paying bonuses can be overcome by a reasonable amount of skill, I'm down. Of course, by the time it comes out I'll have a better system to be playing stuff on. Damn holiday weekend buggerin down the UPS guy...

    There's one major deal-killer for me: it uses the EA downloader.

    EA Downloader, Mebey we should report them to the RIAA, as they are downloading crap to us from the interwebs, and it is terrible. I tried it a couple times and could never like it after using steam.

    Bad Company is for consoles only I believe. This version is for PC and will be free, other than that ive seen no news of another Battlefield game.

    bad company was a bunch of console crap. Consoles are for those who just want to sit and play, and nothing more, not serious gamers.
