I had a $20 coupon at Kmart so stopped by first thing today to pick up a copy of BF3. The clerk said I was the first to buy a copy and asked if I just called asking about the Limited Edition. I said no as he went on to point out that they had only received LE copies for the PS3. All the 360 copies, including mine, were not.
I wanted to use the coupon so ended up buying the game from Kmart. Has anyone else found stores that do not have the LE for sale? I read that the 360 pre-sold much better than the PS3 version and that is why stores are not getting first run LE copies for the Xbox.
So...am I just missing the four retro maps? It isn't like the VIP pass that came with the BadCo2 LE copies is it?
I get that they use these tactics to push pre-orders and gauge sales but with a brand as established as BF do they really need to resort to splitting the community on DAY ONE? From what I understand, you cannot even purchase the 'LE" maps...which I would not have an issue with considering I saved $20 on the game.
Anyway. Just a word of caution to others picking up the game. Double check and try to get a LE copy if they are not sold out in your area.
