    Can anyone confirm or deny the following?

    One of the guys are work was saying that there was going to be more then 1 kit. So for the guys who buy from certain stores get the LMG, shotgun, shotgun ammo and flash suppressor, while other kits will be made for other stores, and you won't be able to get the weapons from those kits unless you get said kit?

    I haven't seen anything about multiple kits, and it doesn't seem right to me. I can't see them taking out that much stuff.

    Looks like EA have caved and are going to unlock the content sometime after release.

    "I would like to start by clarifying that the Physical Warfare Pack is a time-based exclusive. If you do not pre-order Battlefield 3 at a retailer carrying the Physical Warfare Pack, don’t worry. We will unlock the contents of the Physical Warfare Pack for free to all Battlefield 3 players later this year."

    Yeah I don't know the details on the others but they mentioned in one of their press releases that different areas would get different pre-order bonuses.

    + Yay for it being a timed unlock, don't have to cancel mah pre-order now!

    The Aussie pre-order should be:


    • Head: A choice of either a Terry Toweling hat or Akubra with hanging corks.
    • Chest: A blue singlet or QLD / NSW Origin jersey or AFL team of choice.
    • Legs: A pair of Trackie Dacks
    • Feet: Rubber Thongs or Dunlop Volleys
    • Weapon Bonus: An Eski loaded with Stubbies. Activate by cracking open stubby, drink contents, throw empty bottle at enemy along side an Aussie Slang barrage!

    Now if an army dressed like this does not strike fear in to the enemy ... I don't know what will! :eek:

    Yep, it offers no advantage (persceived or otherwise) and is purely cosmetic. Thats the kind of exclusive I think they should be doing imo.
    I personally don't care one way or another, I have already pre-ordered so whatever I get I am happy :)
