i think its awesome job by dice for supporting a game this strongly still but if you were thinking of buying the game i recommend doing so now as this is most likely the most perfect its going to get, besides the game is brilliant!

Oh yeah Cloudedpaul, I was out at DICE last year and I've never seen a more dedicated and talented team at work, they're just great folk. Oh and they've got handguns with shades lamps too in their staff room.

Let's hope the patch fixes the sound drops on the PS3 version. It's not game breaking, but it is damn annoying and does put you at a massive disadvantage not hearing where gun fire is coming from or if the Mcomm is armed. I'm also considering trading in my copy of BF3 and then buying the Ultimate edition as it would work out cheaper than buying the season pass alone.

I personally think too much DLC's and patches making the game losing he's thing and the studios need to get their attention to new games and continuation games

thats a fair opinion but this game is not likely to be topped this gen and if they need to improve it i would prefer free patches and some paid dlc rather than forking out for whole other game i.e call of duty!

I would rather see developers produce a game they are proud of, support it for a few years with patches and DLC to keep the game fresh, than do what CoD does and release a new game every year that is hardly different from the previous one and not support them properly. Also, with the Battlefield DLC each one is a substantial pack that brings new maps, new guns and in-game challenges to add to the MP. The amount of new content you get over the course of all the DLC is pretty much equal to a whole new multiplayer game release.
