Default EA boycott (BF bad company)

well, ever since xbox live has been up, game devs have found many ways to milk money from us gamers.
EA took it to the next level, making you pay for weapons in battlefield: bad company.
With that said, Sarcastic gamers have started a boycott for the game.
So far, Destructoid(http://www.destructoid.com/) have joined them, they also asked one joystiq for help, and they got it, since they made an article about them, while not directly suporting the cause, it was meant to let it be known, that the boycott existed.
Video by Sarcastic gamers bellow.

So, if your a gamer, and tired of getting ripped off, spread the news, let it be known.

Well, that went fast. EA have posted that they've changed their mind now. Although Gold Edition users will get the extra weapons from the start, users of the normal edition will unlock the extra weapons for free once they reach level 25.

I didn't think they'd be stupid enough to go through with it.

An angry gamer community is not something you wish to have.
