    Not a real customization, but, beats nothing that's for sure.

    Was just reading through the game manual and spotted this:
    There’s a wide selection of options from which to choose within the Battlefield 3 store,
    found in Origin. You can access all the latest information for available and upcoming
    Battlefi eld 3 content; redeem codes for in-game content; purchase an Online Pass,
    which gives you access to Multiplayer;
    and purchase additional downloadable content.
    What do you guys think they mean with that? Sounds like we have to pay for multi :S

    Nah, they wouldn't get away with something like that.

    Only if you purchase the game used.

    EA games for consoles require a code to be entered for online play. Once that code is used by the original purchaser, another code need to be purchased by anyone who purchases the game used from Gamestop or a similar retailer.

    Yeah Im thinking this is for console. I highly doubt they would slip this in last second for PC. It's most likely exactly what Dynati wrote.

    I'd imagine that was just an error in leaving it in the manual. Looks like the console manuals where printed first. Though, I guess it could still apply if EA ever allows digital license trading. Who knows.

    I would guess we get the online pass included with the purchase and it's linked to our origins account.

    It makes sense that would be how it is for consoles to prevent resales.

    Its pretty much to stop second hand sales of the game, and to get the developer and pub some money from them since they don´t make any from second hand sales, its just the retailer that makes money of it, and I FULLY support that. Second hand sales hurt the developer and pub.
    Retailers make TON of money from second hand sales that don´t make it to the developer and this is what many companies have started to do now, putting in codes so only the first owner of the game gets everything that comes with the game.

    I do it with every steam game that comes out because as long as you don't publicly announce that you do it they generally don't mind. But I have no idea on EAs policy with it so I'd be careful xD. But then again Bioware and EA said it's ok to use a VPN to pre-order and play SWTOR from AU so I dunno =\.

    Sweet thanks for the heads up, do you know if the ATI drivers are out? Couldn't find anything on it

    Nah nothing yet, not sure if they are really needed though but we'll see. The beta drivers worked fine and the latest one with the RAGE drivers included it all so hopefully it will be working fine.

    I am getting ~30-35 FPS in the campaign with all settings on ultra. It's not great, but I think it's about what I'd expect from my system (6950 2gb). Dunno if drivers would massively improve things.
