Heh, I think the big thing is what PA summarised beautifully, as they 
are wont to do, and something I've been saying for ages - gamers are 
still prepared to shell out money for games without discrimination as to 
the quality of the boxed product:

" "We purport to be angry, but it is largely an ethereal anger, suitable 
for forums on the Intertron. There is no connection between my 
willingness to purchase shoddy products and the continued production of 
said products. At any rate, there is no connection that I am able to 
perceive." "


I haven't touched BF2 yet based off my experiences with both BF1942 and 
BFV - I'll wait until 6 months down the track when its actually what I 
would consider "release quality" after it's been patched repeatedly. I 
advise other gamers to do the same when they ask me, but judging from 
the number of people playing on our servers it seems everyone really 
would just rather get a buggy game earlier.
