Should I get Arma 2 with operation arrow head, or Arma 3? (Dayz)

I want to play and try DayZ

I want to get it for this weekend-

Should I get Arma 3 with DayZ or Arma 2 with operation arrowhead for Dayz mod?

I worry that spending twenty plus dollars on arma 2 now, with arma 3 coming out on September 30, is a waste!

Because I would like to play it now, I have the money- and waiting over a month hoping a sale happens won't work for me!

I have time now- in a month I'll start being busy

Dayz is honestly not that good imo. Wasteland is way more fun

If you're talking about the DayZ mod in Arma 3, you have to have Arma 2 Combined Ops (what is it, base game and Arrowhead?) AND DayZ installed. At least, unless its changed pretty recently.

So, besides stand alone DayZ, you'll have to have Arma 2 anyways

DayZ is very fun with friends. You just have to find a good server, with good performance, no hackers and fair gameplay. After that all you have to do is understand the game Arma 2 and DayZ itself. Half the reason why people try and quit DayZ is that they watch some fun exciting videos but fail to replicate it, because they have no idea what they are doing.
