It's a bad habit that really shouldn't coninue. If you can't help yourself at least wait until a week before release. You still get all the benefits, keep your cash for longer and run less risk compared to forking out money for a product 6 months in advance.
As for the actual game. I played BF3 intensively for a good 3 months and got more than my money's worth (especially considering I payed about 40 Euros for it). I still think it's a great game and I even think the DLC policy is "fair". I'm not a crack or anything but I think BF3 did almost everything right.
That's why BF4 seems kind of "meh" to me. I never enjoyed the BF3 campaign although I'm not quite sure why...as I do tend to enjoy CoD singleplayer. The aimbot AI and scripted events were a big source of frustration but even the game-play wasn't all that exciting.
Anyhow...unless they announce some really new and innovative Multiplayer features I don't see myself getting excited about the game. It's all just too generic.
Maybe it's time I looked at Arma 3 rather than Battlefield 4 for some online-FPS action. Ideally I'd like something in between but that's hard to come by.

Now, BF4, I really am not that impressed. I have said it before and I will say it again. DICE should have focused on releasing more content for BF3, mod tools, game modes (BF2143 anyone? BF:BC3?) before moving in such a rush to BF4. Now, mind you, from what we have seen the single player campaign is looking good but the BF series is all about giant multiplayer gaming.
I'm not pre-ordering this. At least, I am not convinced yet.
So I have recently read an article on PC Gamer, and they have announced the release date as 29-10-13
My biggest gripe is announcing DLCs and premium... they are milking the franchise so bad, and taking the piss a bit... but I suppose we do get decent amounts of content so...
However the return of the commander seat and the 3 factions <3

Won't buy Battlefield after I burned my fingers on Battlefield 3.
- Premium queues
- Shotty DLCs
- Basicly zero patching going on outside DLC/Expansion patches
- Horrendous bug-fixing
- Started selling and promoting Battlefield 4 beta while there was still 2-3 expansions left to be released. (Obvious cash grab)
- And massive amount of cheaters that wasn't dealt with.
I'm done with the BF IP.

I'm really looking forward to battlefield 4 i'm hoping it will be on the new consoles
I am not touching BF4 at all. After playing BF3 for a bit and having to deal with all the DLC, I would not be back for BF4. Its an obvious cash cow, if you cannot admit that to your self well thats your problem. They should have made a BFBC3 instead of BF4. BFBC2 is far more balanced than BF3 and way better gameplay.

So I guess there are not many here who plays Battlefield 4?
Reality is nothing; Perception is everything.
