Considering picking this up, but one question.

Amazon has this on sale today and I'm considering getting it, however the demo made me nauseous from the exaggerated camera bob. Does anyone know if this can be turned off in the options for the PS3/Xbox versions? My purchase comes down to this.

I don't think I understand what your talking about, you mean how fast the camara turns and stuff, if so, no. But the main character utters a phrase 
"What the Dick!" that should be the main factor in having this game. Watch the quick look to, should help you

camera/head bob is when the character is walking and the camera moves up and down to simulate that he is walking. In the demo this made me nauseous. However, many games have the option to turn this off and I need to know if this has the option. Can't have fun playing a game that makes you sick after just a few minutes.

The only head bob I've noticed in the game is when you're sprinting. Also there is no option to turn it off on the PC version, so I don't there will  be in the console versions either. Honestly though I barely noticed it when playing through the game, though I'm not really sensitive to those type of things.

Camera bob typically gives me a bad headache but I was OK playing this game despite the demo.  Also, no it cannot be turned off.

@rbanke: Out of curiosity, is it something where it makes you sick at first but you can adjust, or can you just not play it?  The first Battlefield: Bad Company was this way for me where I spent the first twenty minutes feeling sick and with a headache from the bob, but I eventually got used to it.  The only suggestion I can really give is try playing the demo a bunch to desensitize yourself to it if there's no option to turn off head bob.

I don't see an option anywhere to turn it off.

Thanks for the replies. Sucks that it doesnt have the option to disable it. I may still pick it up and try it, maybe the demo caught me at the wrong time lol.

Another question: Does the game require that separate EA log in for the score attack or whatever else the online features are?
