I love how it's a more realistic style of gameplay.  You actually have to pull out your knife before hand if you want to melee them.  That should make things interesting when switching back and forth between COD.

According to bf3blog.com, the Battlefield 3 pre-order bonuses have been revealed for the US.

http://bf3blog.com/2011/08/battlefield-3-us-pre-order-bonuses-revealed/

Highlights:
-Gamestop: Back to Karkand DLC Expansion Pack*, Physical Warfare Pack (extra weapons; will be available later this year to all players)
-Amazon: Back to Karkand DLC Expansion Pack*, Exclusive Set of Dog Tags for Multiplayer
-Best Buy: Back to Karkand DLC Expansion Pack*, 8 SPECACT Kit multiplayer skins

* The Back to Karkand DLC Expansion Pack will be released later this year.  It will not be released at launch.

Now the important decision: who should I preorder from?  I'm thinking of preordering from Gamestop to get the extra weapons even though I know these will be unlocked for everyone later this year.  I don't think I will need special dog tags or multiplayer skins.  Where are you guys going to preorder from?

Got that Pre-ordered :)

You'd prob be best to pre-order the bonus'es from gamestop, Dog tags will most likely be nothing & the SPECACT kit will sure to be unlocked at a higher in the game (Just like the SPECACT kit from BC2).

I ordered the one with Physical Warfare pack and Back to Karkand over here in the UK. Never been interested in aesthetic bonuses like that because they don't change the gameplay. Only exception has been Reach

I heard somewhere on the EA Forums that a Dice employee said that the Physical Warfare Pack (the pre-order pack with extra weapons) is only a timed-exclusive of 30 days before everyone else gets it.  I haven't confirmed this as of yet.  If this is the case though, I'm thinking of switching my pre-order from Gamestop to Best Buy to get the SPECACT multiplayer skins.  I can wait for 30 days for new weapons if that is the case.

What do you guys think?  Would it be better to switch to something that is more exclusive, like the SPECACT skins?  I don't care about dogtags from Amazon.com, but the SPECACT skins would be cool for customization purposes.

If that does get confirmed & is the case, then I guess I'll most likely cancel my pre-order from game & pre-order at shopto.net (UK) where you'll get a Xbox live avatar suit pre-order bonus instead. No pics have came out so we don't know what it looks like atm, maybe near the end of September/beginning of October we'll see something.

Mind you that the avatar outfit pre-order bonus will probally be a exclusive & won't appear on the marketplace, capcom done the same when they released Dead Rising 2. So the outfit will become rare as a result from it, I don't want to miss out on it but I'll wait & see first what the deal is with the Physical Warfare pack pre-order bonus.

Ok.  I did some research.  First, I found a post on the EA Battlefield forums where someone posts what zh1tn0 replied to someone's question on Twitter about the Physical Warfare Pack: http://forum.ea.com/eaforum/posts/list/7469454.page.  zh1tn0 is DICE's community manager, according to the Twitter account.

@SpasmaticFlow Yep! PWP is 30 days.

If this is indeed true, then I might change my pre-order to Best Buy so I can get the SPECACT skins.  I can wait for the weapons to come out for everyone if it is only a 30-day timed exclusive.

Also, on bf3blog.com, an unofficial Battlefield 3 blog, they posted some renders of the SPECACT skins: http://bf3blog.com/2011/08/battlefield-3-specact-class-renders/

Ok cool cheers for that, I've canceled my order from game.co.uk & gone with shopto.net to get the Avatar outfit. Dog tags & SPECACT skins don't interest me, and I don't mind paying for the PWP when it goes on tha maerketplace. I most certainly not missing out on the avatar outfit, epescially when it's going to exclusive & most likely very rare afterwards.

I think the SPECACT will become available eventually, same with BC2, plus the points on my GAME card are always good

I am buying from amazon as I don't really mind if I miss out on a few things. Not even sure if I get anything :o

SPECACT makes the game last that little bit longer but I'm not sure it's worth the MS Points

I preordered from best buy, just to get in on a big deal they are running. this game is looking good but i am worried it will end up like the other battlefield games i own and have rented, sitting on the shelf because I can never get a group together and when i join with randoms the squad i end up in has no mic's. The other battlefield/MOH games are not COD, lone wolfing it will get you raped.
