    eastmen are u in the us or eu and the GT review sucks, it like they must have played on a turn of the century PC as i have had no issues vidualy, with higher IQ and frame rate than both the console versions!

    its like they were being hard on it for not being BF3 which its isnt and was never supposed to be.....

    the limited edition is the same price as the normal edition. however it is only available during the launch week & comes w/ some stuff unlocked.

    there is no $40 version. just be happy they didn't charge $60 like activision for mw2.

    Great,

    I ran the updater this morning and now it asks me for me CD/DVD.

    DICE/EA! If you don't know how to copy protect your Digital Downloads, then DON'T DO IT!
    The more CP (not child porn) on your game, the more likely people are to resolve it with Piracy.
    If it works with just a CD key on BF2 after patch 1.4, then why not make it work in BC2?

    The activator tried to resolve a couple of times (since it's past the release dat according to the EA Downloader, but to no avail.

    edit: Aren't all editions Limited Editions now?

    and i won't get my BFBC2 pc game until next month...
    the importer told me that they got some problems :(

    my friends around me already playing BFBC2 pirated version.
    it's a dillema to live in my country. Much easier to buy pirated games than original games :(

    atleast next month when i got my original BFBC2, i can laugh at my friends :D :D
    i can go ONLINE, they CAN'T ho ho ho

    @Nebula
    hope you can get the game tomorrow d(^_^)b

    I believe it depends on whether they use Steam authentication or not for their box version. Usually you can register a key within steam from your box copy and it will be linked to your steam account.

    Gamestop never even charged me on BOTH the dates they said they would. I just got off the phone with a representative after having canceled my order. It's easier to just go to the damn store and buy the stupid thing.

    I don't think I'm going to pre-order with them again. I'll be a day behind you, Neb :)

    See you guys on the battlefield come Friday!

    According to the store page in approximately 5 hours. But it's not very exact with the estimate going down 2 hours for 3 actual hours passed. My guess would be either midnight or 1 am GMT.

    I read what I hope is BS, that they would unlock for Europe on the 4th, but having the UK wait until the 5th. But the EADM have already unlocked the game for Europe, so...

    I bought the UK version from Direct2Drive (the weak GBP made it just too tempting) so I guess it's the 5th for me.

    I cannot join a NA server but for whatever reason I can join Eur. servers. Wouldnt be a BF game without launch server problems.

    LOL! I was going to say to all of you who are upset about the launch date disparity - no need to be pissed. The damn servers won't let you connect anyway (at least on 360 anyway).

    It just humourous how EA/DICE still can't get it right on launch day.
