Day one patch for Medal of Honor Warfighter really is required

We're used to an update as we get a game home, but the list of fixes for Medal of Honor: Warfighter is impressively baffling.
The list of fixes is long, and the list in its entirety can be seen at EA's help website here, but some of the bigger remedies appear to be part of what games require in order to play effectively:
-Fixed an issue where the default difficulty was set to Easy instead of Normal.
-Fixed an issue where controls would become unresponsive under certain conditions.
-Players can no longer join an invitation only party without being invited.
-Fixed "no scope" shooting. Players were getting immediate ADS accuracy without having to wait for the scope to come all the way up. Was very exploitable for snipers.
-Made switching between primary and secondary weapons much more responsive.
-Fixed an issue where aiming was pushing the player away from the wall they were standing next to.
-Made the start button responsive as soon as the player enters the first menu screen.
-Fixed some subtitle lines being cut off.
-VOIP team channel no longer includes players from the other team.
-(PS3 - Japan) Fixed an issue that prevented 17-year old users from playing online.
-Fixed a case of an explosion not playing the correct audio.
-Fixed an issue where, under certain circumstances, brand new players were forced to play with a placeholder weapon in multiplayer until their first death.
-Fixed an issue where controller prompts were showing even though a controller was not plugged in.
So, if you're planning on picking up Medal of Honor: Warfighter, please make sure that your internet is connected. It's strange to see a game require these kinds of fixes, but it's fortunate for EA Games that it fixes these issues immediately.

Developers are constantly putting out nearly finished games. That is why they had the 360 'beta' out, so they could find these bugs. I dont really care about downloading day one patches, just I expect more out of a game developer.

DAMN..... come on EA, i know you can expect a few bug's in a game but W.T.F is this crap?? a day one patch to fix all this? what if you dont have the internet (i know, its rare, but some people don't have it) that would mean your buying a hugely broken game at full price.... That is just disgusting X_x
