Yeah they like to try and make money, thats why EA games are pirated as much as Microsoft windows.... duh.
I really don't think that it's premature, but right on time. Unlike most people in these furoms I really haven't had any problems with the game. By sides servers crashing some times but thats BS. I think that there will be more in RTR then just some new maps and skins. This is the time when EA could throw in a few small update with this. I think that a new patch will come out when RTR hits the shelves. Lets wait and see.:smokin:
If they do this add-on like some others....Operation Flashpoint....then the next patch (1.3) will be included in the add-on itself.
