i agree this is stupidity, but boycotting bf3 you are only losing out. there will be nowhere near enough of you boycotting to make any real difference. boycotting is good and all, i just think this cause itself is lost. plus, it's important to recognize that DiCE is not EA and vice versa. publisher's are evil, DiCE is a good developer. stand by the few good developers in existence even if you have to deal with a crappy publisher or two.
