You can have a dude on your Battlefield 5 cover… for just $20 extra


Vaginas! PCGamesN has the story.

Quote:
Battlefield V has been announced, and a woman features prominently in its trailer and cover art. This has upset certain corners of the internet, whose main complaint is that depicting women as frontline combatants is historically inaccurate despite numerous - albeit exceptional - examples of them being exactly that.

Ah, but see, EA thought of this. If you’d like a dude on the cover of your copy of Battlefield V, you can have one - by paying an extra $20 for the deluxe edition. The standard edition - which, as we’ve noted, features a woman with all her incomprehensible vaginas - will set you back $59.99 (£54.99), while the deluxe costs $79.99 (£69.99). A small price to pay so you can put a picture of a man in your desk drawer and never look at it again, we think you’ll agree.

You'd be surprised. Most are huge tomboys with penis envy.

The REAL girl gamers play things like Harvest Moon, Atelier Series, The Sims, and Tetris. Trust me on this.

First three titted chicks (Total Recall) and now women with multiple Vaginas (Battlefield V). What a world we live in! /S

They have to charge more for the male cover because the male model was paid 130% of what the female model was. The cost is passed onto the consumer!

Well you do have to admit the BF3 Man on Fire cover was cool, otherwise Bad Company covers were my thing, the Smiley on a Grenade.

It doesn't matter. I'll go out and pick this up as quickly as I picked up the other Battlefields.





I never picked up any Battlefields.
But I really don't care much. I take notice only because it feels like the devs/artists/whoever are saying "*nudge* *nudge* *wink* A woman eh? Bet that bothers you men types" not because it actually bothers me.

LOL. Is there a point to this other than to show how irrelevant this is? Because that's all I'm getting out of it.

This is my problem. I have no issue with these kind of things, but it becomes a major thorn when it becomes the talking point and annoys the entire gamer space. If there were literally no articles written the other day to spread what little hate there was over women being depicted in the game, most people would not have cared. But it is now a "someone is wrong on the Internet" moment and everyone is upset, when before, it was just a small subset of the Internet who had an exception to women being depicted in front line roles during WWII.

That's what I got out of it.

We're (collective we) manufacturing an issue out of an ahistorical cover on an ahistorical game featuring ahistorical gameplay.

What an awesome world we live in.

I do think there has been too much of a focus on women these past couple years. They've made it out to where being attracted to a skinny chic with big tits is a bad thing.

I agree but I also wonder how big of a deal it really is. Yeah we're talking about it but does anyone really care all that much?

Only assholes still buy overpriced physical copies for overhyped shit EA games. Who cares what is on the cover.
