According to the official Battlefield Blog, EA has decided to bring Battlefield 3 gamers closer... much like Activision is doing with their just-announced project, Call of Duty Elite.
perhaps another failed attempt at beating the best
of the worst? BF3 ftw! They might offer call of duty:Elite features for free! I am sure EA can afford it! Activision would look so dumb..
LOL, Well done Rig.
COD is overrated!
Yes, because EA is so nice they: - introduced online pass forcing you to pay again for other family members (or friends) wanting to play online. Something YOU ALREADY PAID FOR! - also introduced EA store where you were they charged you extra for re-download service (similar to another evil corporation called GameStop). Only recently did they give up on that... Thanks, but no thanks EA!
If we are to call ourselves gamers, then we all need to support Dice and BF3. simply look at the amount of features and changes the battlefield series brings. All the way from bf 1,2 and 3... COD is the same old rehashed crap year after year. "oh, look people! New killstreaks! Pls pay us $60 cos we worked so hard to come up with an innovative and fun list of killstreaks."
@sniper "CoD is the same rehashed game" - um, which series isn't? BF3 looks wicked sick, but guess what? ..BF3 is rehashed and BF3 has immature teenagers online. Go get some original material for your trash talking.
CoD players have fork up money while BF players get the same stuff for free, ouch for them lool
Actually in all fairness COD put out a bad video. Everything in the video was presumed a paid feature. When in fact pretty much 98% of what they showed was free. The video they put out did the worst job ever of explaining what was what. This does a much better job. http://www.platformnation.c... Everything on that list is free. Which was pretty much the whole video. Minus competing for real prizes and the 24/7 events.
Smart move, one less advantage Acticrap has over EA.
This is the year of EA - Mass Effect 3 - Fifa - Madden - BF3 - STAR WARS!!!
ME3 next year im afraid
There have been reports of ME3 being playable for media at E3 this year... so don't count it out of this years show... but it will be a 2012 release.
next year MOH, Fifa, Madden, Tiger Woods PGA, etc.
Free to play games already offer for free what CoD Elite has to offer. Activision is a joke.
I know people are making a deal out of because of COD's Elite service, but this sort of thing isnt anything new.
"The only thing that matters, however, is end-product and sales numbers..." Stop telling developers this! Cover your ears, DICE! Lalalalalalala!...
I hope for BF3 when you want heli,planes etc. Your in line to get it. or some other way of doing it. That should help with the teamkillz. Me want to see some new pc footage and some console footage as well.
And if anybody still defends the garbage that is CoD: Elite, they must be either insane or a corporate shill.
Or already paying for something that's free everywhere else..
No need for EA to announce this as I was doing this all for free in BF2.
I'm not much of a MW3 lover, but I don't think we'll be charged for the social services and stats even on CoD Elite. I don't like being f*cked by Activision with it's BS new standards (15$ old-map rehashed DLC, expensive PC games...) neither but the general services of Elite will stay free, only some extra-stuff will need payement. I say that because everyone is hitting on Activision like they are going to make us pay entirely for Elite...
Funny how these two companies fight over service offering that remind me more of Waypoint and Bungie.net. Except Bungie has always offered these items for FREE. I have earned avatar items, in game content, viewable stats, leaderboards that could use a little work, and a forum community. Not to mention the monthly map updates, big jackpot bonuses, etc. Sounds like one company got it right and the rest are just following suit with greed.
Good point. Completely forgot about Waypoint.
