The VIP access is up for people who didn't buy a new copy and want the free DLC (which isn't as free when you've paid 1200 points for it!).

1200msp for a 188kb download... WOW!

So glad I bought it new, but if it turns out that the VIP code only gives us access to 2 maps already on the disc and 2 existing game modes for 2 existing maps, then I'm pretty sure its the biggest con of the century xD

If that happened I'd never buy an EA game again.

So will this work for the future VIP DLC also? Or just the two out already?

Because I have a friend who bought used and he always gets kicked from the squad when the DLC maps come up.

I fail to see what the problem is with the marketplace content. I got mine for free when I got the game brand new. And if you think about it that's $15 for ALL future VIP content anyways, probably going to save you money compared to the Mapathy packs at $15 a pop.

Speaking of VIP content it's already been confirmed that there will be a number of VIP content downloads in the future, so no need to fuss

So what exactly is included in this VIP download? New game mode is Squad Rush? What are these extra maps?

Yes, if he buys this code it will be as though he had the game new.

There were two maps to download (one for rush another for conquest) on day one. There are two more maps getting modes added to them on March 30th (Arica Harbor gets conquest and Laguna Presa gets Rush). Squad Rush is open to all who did NOT get it at Gamestop around April 1st or 2nd I think (month after release)

You need to use caps and - when entering the code in the ea store in game not in dashboard

Goku, don't state your opinions as fact.

EA published Mass Effect 2, which is one of the best games I've ever played. I don't believe ALL the games they've published are trash. Others would likely agree.

I believe FIFA games are silly because I don't play soccer and would find a game based on that sport somewhat boring. That doesn't mean it is complete shit.

I don't know for sure, but i posted already that it just looks like they are trying to make BFBC1 (the full On Demand game) available to purchase directly through the in-game store. I mean, the image is of BFBC1 and it SAYS it... makes sense to me :confused:

Wasnt stating a fact, just my opinion.

My opinion is that most EA games are very average. Mass Effect is basically an interactive book, an interactive book that costs 10x as much as an actual book, just so you can look at some shiny graphics and semi nude aliens. I'd rather watch Paris Hilton's cult favourite, The Hottie & The Nottie.

As for sports games as a whole, you'd think they'd actually try to make them realistic for once. To be fair it seems right that the best footy game series to date has came from England (This is Football for those that cant remember back that far). Far from perfect, but a hell of a lot better than the arcade garbage still floating around now.

Also, I apologise if my sarcasm offends you, I really do...

oh here we go again with the OMG OUTRAGE CONTENT IS ON DISC AND I CANT HAVE FOR FREE!!!!!!!!!


seriously, buy it new and you wont have the problem, go join that idiot who is suing Gamestop


and EA actually publishes good games, Right now im playing Brutal legend, its awesome

others include:

mass effect 1 and 2
battlefields
dantes inferno ( i know not critically acclaimed, but i like it)
Dragon age

so from my standpoint I actually like EA, Activision however sucks and likes to ride certain franchises to the bank like COD and Guitar hero

This. Start to finish this is exactly how I feel. EA isn't as bad a company as many try to imply. Sure Madden is getting a bit stale but whatever, look at the games listed above and that's all you need to know.

Daggra
03-27-2010, 05:43 PM
Well, just saying, not joining one side of an argument or anything, but the reason for this is that when games are traded in and resold as used, EA doesn't receive any money for that transaction. That being said, it's an incentive for the player to buy new and for them to get money. However, the way I see it, either way, they win, haha.

There were those articles on this website last week about EA/DICE mocking IW's "Mapathy" and releasing their own update on the same day. From the article on 3/11:

"The map pack will quite simply bring Conquest mode to the Arica Harbor level, whilst at the same time giving us another Rush map, this time, the Laguna Presa. Two maps already on the disc, but tweaked for the two classic modes. To get access to the VIP member's area with free content like this, you need to have either purchased the game brand new and inserted the code, or purchased the VIP pass from the in-game store."

"The second VIP map pack for Bad Company 2 is coming March 30th"

It's there 10 dollar thing.they done it with ME2 aswell.give u free dlc if u buy the game new or charge u if u buy pre owned.tryin to combat rentals and pre owned sales. Because if u know u need to spend another 10 or 15 on it it's less appealing and u might aswell get it new.

Paying for content that is shipped on the disc is a damn dirty method. If they want to make insentives for puchasing it brand new fine. However if I buy it brand new and then have to pay for DLC, they can go to hell. Holding back content to release as DLC is kinda bad (like ACII) as well but not as bad because at least they can argue that they didn't have time to finish it before shipping. The whole point of DLC is for developers to support their game after release and get some extra revenue for the development time that takes. You might as well be paying $70 for a game instead of $60 if you gotta pay to activate content on the disc.

Yeah but have you ever wondered why they hold them back? A lot of the time they can't release it with the disc beause its not fully tested, or they find a last minute error or something. I'd much prefer to have the game early minus a few maps, to having a game released that you can't actually play.

I kind of agree with you though, i'm just looking at it from the other side :)

I'm guessing you've never played the game? or only one game mode? Otherwise you would have known that although the maps are named the same the are completely different for each game mode...

As for the DLC, it'll come out soon enough. I'm not too concerned, nor do I believe it's really going to have much of an impact on the game itself.

If you don't read what has come before you will not know you dumb ass.

You don't download it from the marketplace, you have to get them in the in game store! If you had read the first page you would not have asked that!

Because they have not said so, I thought that was plain and simple really! The in game store is showing that they is going to be something, but not when it will be out. they are releasing things as time goes on!

sorry to break it to you, but your about 3 years behind on that one, EA used to be like Activision but anyone whos actually been paying attention these last few years knows theyve redeemed themselves quite considerably, and Activision have fallen down the same route EA previously had.
