I want it digital, but it seems the digital version is not on sale which is weird. I always thought digital versions of games would be cheaper than physical for its convinience but I guess not finally...

Generally physical is cheaper because stores have limited space, they need to clear out stock quickly for the next hot game.

Yes but you need the Trooper Elite edition just to try and keep up, so this version is useless.
I will wait until the surplus/overstock swells much higher from the fan backlash, and hopefully pick up the Trooper Elite edition for $15 or so... even then I will have to really think about it, LOL

Also it's hilarious they list the Pre-owned version for 54.99!

Bunch of imbeciles down-voting the deal. If you're in the market for the game, this is the best price I've seen. Next best is 40 from Target and Walmart.

It's a fun game. Continuing to hate on it is not going to do any more than it already has done. The game and community will forge on-wards with or without the haters, just with a smaller population. And the longer people hold out on it, the less Dice and EA are likely to continue releasing content. It's a catch 22 where you want the game for the cheapest price but the revenue the game makes is what fuels ongoing development turning it into a bigger game.

I am anxiously awaiting further offline content to be added to the game but in the mean time, I still have a lot of fun with it.

People want EA to die. So yes it is effective to down vote and hate on it.

This is a deal thread and most of the down votes have nothing to do with the deal as this is the best price available till now; if people want to whine about the game, go over to metacritic or Amazon to leave a product review.

Though most of the chumps downvoting it have likely not played it and are just angry about the micotransactions so those monkeys have no business leaving any semblance of a review and should stick to Twitter or Facebook to target comments towards EA and Dice.

EA will likely be around long after the xb1 and PS4 are collecting dust.

Battlefront 2 is a very fun game. It has its weaknesses (random loot boxes, match-making shortcomings, not a lot of offline content at this point) but it is polished in visuals, audio, and approximates what a Star Wars battle would be like.

At a 35 price point, it is a good deal.

Thumbs down. For feedback purposes, please select a reason: not a good product.

If so, fair enough.

You don't seem to get it. Not supporting the business model, and trying to get others to do the same, is the point. EA will obviously survive a boycott, but their future products will depend on how much money they made or lost on this fiasco. The sooner this game dies the better. you don't have to play the game to understand how loot boxes and pay to win mechanics work.

I understand it just fine. As an owner of the game, it is in my best interest (and everyone else who owns it) that they continue to support the game and release additional content which will be helped along by continued sales. Therefore I give my opinion of the game to those who would be searching for a deal on it, that it is a good and fun game.

As a fan of games, I am glad that the community has sent a strong message to the studios that we don't want micotransactions; this message has been heard loud and clear and we have already seen a response (removal of micotransactions from Battlefront which rumor that they may not return at all). This uproar occurred by way of Reddit, before the game even launched and the bulk of sales would occur (or be lost).

But instead of acting like today's politicians, drawing a line in the sands of Mos Eisley and refusing to even consider crossing over it, we would all do well to acknowledge that the production costs of a game like Skyrim and Battlefront are going to be significantly more than the amount it took to produce Waverace for N64, though they both carry the same starting MSRP of 60 bucks, and N64 games took a few years to drop in price, much slower than the few months it now takes before a game's price will be marked down. Production of games of this quality, without finding additional revenue streams to cover the higher production costs, or a larger audience over which the costs can be spread, is unsustainable. It will result in games either being shorter, less polished, having less content, or not being produced. Indie games will become the only games companies can afford to produce.

If EA wasn't confident of being able to make more money off the micotransactions, they likely wouldn't have planned as ambitious of a game development as they did. Their error was not seeking out feedback earlier on in the process to how this would be received and in how they structured them (forcing a long slow grind to progress while allowing paid access to faster progress which would create an imbalance).

If you have real solutions to how this can be addressed that would satisfy gamers as well as producers' need to turn a profit, I'm interested to hear. But the inane thumbs down on anything to do with Battlefront isn't going to advance the cause further than the 500k+ downvote uproar on Reddit already did. Ignoring reality doesn't make it less real; companies need to turn a profit and that will require either raising the price of high quality games above 60 bucks or selling a lower quality product for the same price.
