Could Battlefield 1943 PC Finally Launch in July?

Ex: With each passing month, PC gamers are beginning to witness an increasing games drought as more and more developers shift their resources and budgets to consoles. Titles like Call of Duty which saw birth and massive popularity on PC's now pledge their allegiance to Xbox 360 and PS3.

Will Battlefield 1943 PC ever see the light of day? Fans anticipating the PC version have been left in a perpetual state of confusion for months. But, despite the game being MIA in most digital retailer's databases, there could still be hope.

I don't really get the point of even bothering with a release this late unless they completely remake Battlefield 1942 in the Frostbite engine.

It it would have been released leading up to BFBC2 it would've been great, but I can't see a whole lot of attention being paid to the game a year after it was released on consoles.

100% agree...but I imagine the people who've already paid for the game are paying attention to it. Heh, most likely because they feel ripped off.

-lol

Starcraft 2 anyone.......

The media is retarded....PC gaming is the true platform....
Consoles are to communism what
PC gaming is to liberty

Look at the steam sale right now.
I can save enough money on games to build 2 gaming PC's in one day of sales.
My ps3 plays blurays and god of 3 and uncharted 2.
My 360 was good for halo 3 and gears 1 (2 was trash imo)
other than that it is a dust collector.

Long live PC
The peoples gaming system.

Yamzilla, you're welcome to continue being delusional, but the cold truth is that PC gaming isn't nearly as prolific as it was only a few years ago, and developers ARE increasingly treating consoles as their lead platform.

Yes, yes, Starcraft II. Can you name a few more?

Here's some that SHOULD be leading the charge on PC: Crysis 2, Rage, BattleField 1943...

Besides, your argument is a little thin. The truth is in the sales #'s.

Elemental: War of Magic, The Sims 3 expansions, Arma 2 Operation Arrowhead, Crysis 2 (lead on PC), Portal 2 (lead on PC), Civilization V, Shogun 2: Total War, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Gothic 4, The Witcher 2

You would be crazy to think the PC as a gaming platform is irrelevant.

yamzilla2675d ago (Edited 2675d ago )

Here's some games consoles won't get to play;

Diablo 3
The Witcher 2
APB
Arma 2 operation arrowhead
Jumpgate evolution
Civ 5

...those are just a few I could think of that drop this year....

How many exclusives come out in the next year for each console?

I'm sorry about your down syndrome but.....PC gaming accounts for more revenue and profit world wide than all 3 major consoles combined!!!

Sony and MS are just now getting out of the red.

World of Warcraft alone makes more money than the bottom 90% of all console games created this gen!!!

There are something like 26 million steam users.

PC is SHITTING on your favorite console....

Sorry...but true

...and you can keep naming SINGLE games to defend PC with, while I can name dozens that will drive people to consoles. Look, I play games. I have all systems including tons of great PC titles. Not gonna waste time arguing with you further. Ignorance is bliss.

yamzilla2675d ago

going back to the Atari 2600....

I just don't like to see the best one (PC) get blasted.

Everything else besides a PC game at stunning 1920x1080p with at LEAST 8x anti aliasing on a perfectly calibrated 50" plasma screen is a sacrifice....I'll do it for a great exclusive....uncharted 2 did look tasty....but damn it would of looked a hell of a lot better on PC!!!

I'm looking forward to this. I pre-ordered it for free with the £10 cokezone vouchers. Just hope my PC can run it.
