Get ready to part with some more of your wages to EA and their terrible published games.

In my eyes, the car in the picture will probably be Takedown (which I helped fund over on Kickstarter).

I wonder what lame, micro-transaction bs they're going to shoehorn into this game. Should be fun/sad to watch.

Uniforms and hats, weapon skins and XP bonuses shouldn't be far away.
Other than that I expect the maps to only feature one alleyway now, we wouldn't want all those console derps to get confused by offering them multiple options!

Pay for guns. Pay $5 to get a laser cannon that fires other machineguns which fire rockets.

I think they handled the monetization of BF3 pretty decently. The DLC's all included quite a bit of original content. You could purchase the ability to fully rank up a specific kit and what not. Wasn't too bad.

For some reason I hope that DICE has enough dignity left to not offer weapons giving a benefit to the buyer, if/when they decide to do micro transactions.
But I could see them offer Nations - British Armed Forces for 10$ containing various weapons and uniforms.

The DLC's were surprising, though I wasn't too fond of Close Quarters and haven't tried End Game yet.
I had forgotten all about the unlock kits, what are horrible idea. The starting weapons are beasts any way (Recon excluded), so why even bother buying the kits? If you don't play a class you shouldn't have the ability to get unlocks for it, the same go for vehicles.

Would be nice for actual British Army regulars. Im beginning to worry that some Americans think we have the SAS and nothing else.

Still the SAS is something to be proud of!
BF2 had some great additions in form of DLC, especially the booster packs integrated some great content! I do believe Euro Force added the Leopard 2A6, Challenger 2 (Tanks) and the Typhoon (Jet) and a series of small-arms including the L85A2, and added a new faction (EU) together with new maps.
It would have been great to experience something besides USA and Russia in BF3, could have been a great DLC getting to fight as an EU army with new vehicles. They should have made a "Booster Pack" just as they did in BF2, would have been better than Close Quarters.

The DRM in Battlefield 3 is ridiculous. Thank God I got it as a free game.
