Neocrisis:You'll be able to check out your stats, and manage clans in Battlefield 3 through the Battlelog. Unlike Call of Duty's Elite service, all of the features offered in Battlelog will be completely free.
Activision eat your heart out ;) this is how you treat consumers
I`m pretty sure Bungie has been doing this since Halo3. COD is charging for something that is free mostly everywhere else....no wonder they get along w/ MS so much! :P
RIP Call of Doodie
RIP Call of Generic shooter
free social aspects as it should be done. next thing the other franchise would start charging for betas not in the preordering sense. as a lot of gamers say battlefield 3 FTW
LMAO. That just totally drove the stake into Call of Duty. I was like, WOW COD:Elite looks kinda cool, from the Legend of ____ video thingy, but now.. DANG. Way to go! HAHAHA
open beta in september but game comes out in october....good but also bad in some sense. Can any major fix/crashbugs or glitches be fix in a months time? Hopefully there will be little problems really don't want to see a delay.
A month wouldn't be enough time to fix anything major - this is a marketing move, plane and simple. They want to generate hype for the game, and a beta is a great way to do it. Just to be clear, a month is definitely enough time for minor tweaks and fixes. Still, the MP will most likely be in a near-final state during the beta.
Open Beta's are usually just for server side testing. Making sure they can push out updates correctly, see if there are any exceptions being met, and most importantly that everyone can connect to the game itself.
I'm glad for the feature but calling it battlelog...sound stupid.
That's it. I'm getting a new rig NEXT MONTH!
Ohh nice, multiplat beta testing in September! Freaking nice! Ill try to join! Wonder if Call of what again? Anyways wonder if it will be getting a beta as well?
yeah its called ELITE
ohh okay cool thanks for the heads up! +Bubbles
BF 3 100% free!! f**K u Activision
well technically not as you have to pay for your copy lolz im just messing
and if some one gift you? or you stole it from your friends house?
creamed my pants
Time to pull the medal of honor limited back out for the beta access
Is elite a subscription service or is it just a one time payment? Stat tracking should be free.
