    This is very nice, you pre-order the game, but it won't become available to you until the 28th.. would get it faster by going to a store and buying it...... (don't really care about the "extra" content you get, just want to play the game when everyone else can) It's already preloaded for me, but now I have to wait for 7 days ... this is fun :( And to make things worse, someone that has not payed for it will probbably be able to start playing single player tomorrow due to a crack or something..

      Every time I try to download the pre ordered BF3 limited edition I get the error message about updating windows. Trying to get through to Origin helpline is like trying to break into Fort Knox. Wish I had waited for the disc to come out in the shops

    PLEASE EA figure out a quick way for us to mute someone. When I was playing the beta I would spend half the match trying to figure out who had the hot mic. Please fix it to where when you pull up the score board you can see who's doing it and allow us to quickly mute them. Being able to hear is detrimental to the game play.

    to pre load you might have to restart origin if it hasn't been restarted since pre load became available. Should work for everyone now.
