I find their story hard to believe ... "ensure the features and functionality that PC players have come to expect from Battlefield on PC are not missing.".
Honesty, it may be harsh but it's better than this bullshit. Yes I'm grateful that you're even considering doing something for my pirating thieving self, however, my $15 is the same as xbox gamer's $15 .. or is it? If they believe they put more effort in to PC game and it warrens a higher price, charge more, people will pay more for quality product. But no, we'll get the same buggy game (as with all DICE games on their release) 8 months after the console gamers.
In any case ...
Does this have lower system requirements than BC2? I may get it to keep me happy 'till I buy a new PC so I can properly play BC2.
