Battlefield 3 - no killstreaks + more quotes

GGTL@E3: "The Playstation Blog had a little interview on Battlefield 3, and over the deafening noise of E3, we managed to pull out a few quotes regarding the upcoming wonderkid. Here's just a snippet." (Battlefield 3, E3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

I know right. The lack of console footage is worrying. They best release some soon. It looks stunning on PC but that is useless to me and other console users
HardCover  +   1229d ago
the game comes out in October.

There is still pleeeeeeeenty of time to show off footage. Or do you really need to scrutinize it for 4 months to decide whether it's actually worth it or not? :/
ATiElite  +   1229d ago
The PC footage is not useless to console owners. If anything it should motivate you to get a good Gaming PC to enjoy BF3 in all it's glory.

Remember BF3 is a PC game and DICE will show the console footage when the game is done. I'm sure BF3 console will look better than BC2 which looked very nice on console.
spektical  +   1229d ago
why should i buy a gaming rig for bf3, when i already have a console, and want to play it on the console? that doesnt make sense.

console footage will come, and if it doesn't i trust DICE will make a great console version.

"from twitch-kill 14-year-olds"

ha hahaha

Thank you DICE for giving us both twitchy & tactical gameplay.

They showed about 2 pics of PS3 footage and it looked good.
Ju  +   1229d ago
They didn't show the game? I just saw I missed the BF3 live feed from the blog ( http://blog.us.playstation.... ), but I thought they showed the game. No show? Come on dice.

Awww, but I love winning games without doing anything!!!!!!!!

awi5951  +   1229d ago
And before cod fans start complaining . BF2 had a ranking system in a modern setting when COD was still in WW2. So who copied who.
ivant  +   1229d ago
No problem.

Commonsense would only draw a conclusion that the console version will be BETTER than Bad Company 2.

....especially when they are using an much improved Frostbite 2 engine.

This is good news.

I'm glad there are no killstreaks. Killstreaks are okay and work fine in Call of Duty; they should remain there. I always find killstreaks encouraging only the individual instead of a whole team. People will do whatever it takes to get more kills but most importantly be at the top of their team list.

Someone with no skill will camp somewhere, rank up 25 kills and then pull a tactical nuke, winning for their team, which is just bull.

Thank You DICE For Not Adding Killstreaks
I, for one, hope that DICE never adds killstreaks to Battlefield. One of the top reasons I dislike COD was the introduction of killstreaks with their "no skills kills". It's such a cheesy, arcadey game mechanic. Plus, I hate campers in FPS games and all killstreaks do is increase the incentive to camp. Thank you DICE for not putting them in BF3 and please keep them out of all future Battlefield games. Let it stay a COD thing.

+ more quotes? from the title i assumed they where talkin about in-game quotes, i love it on BC2 when i here "take that motherfu<ker" (or words to those effect) in the background
Sarobi  +   1229d ago
I am alright with no killstreaks, it just doesn't make sense to me why you need a special ability to make you NOT want to die.
radphil  +   1229d ago
That special ability is called willpower. :p
soundslike  +   1229d ago
Just put a "AVERAGE UNITS LOST PER MATCH" stat and those people will do whatever it takes including "TEAMWORK?WTF?"
BlackKnight  +   1229d ago
considering many of the Killstreaks in COD are helicopters and jets dropping bombs and so on.....BF3 has these in the game as pure vehicles. Way better.
admiralthrawn87  +   1229d ago
awesome i hate killstreaks and most cod related "innovations"

getting this on PC and hopefully Wii U
MasterD919  +   1229d ago
I don't see why Kill Streaks would be necessary.

Its very COD IMO. BF3 doesn't need them. Frankly, don't think they would work as well either.
BlackKnight  +   1229d ago
Killsteaks are jets dropping bombs or attack helis or armored helis.....these are in BF games as vehicles! Killstreaks not needed.
tigertron  +   1229d ago
Oh noes not teh killstreaks! how can I request chopper support and UAV bombings now?!

Hop in the chopper or use the UAV. Sounds easy enough.

No killstreaks are good, hopfully cod noobs will see this and stay with there shitty game. Nice1 Dice!!
HardCover  +   1229d ago
"It's a game where every type of player can find their place on the battlefield, from twitch-kill '14-year-olds' to the player who wants to play more slowly, more tactically."

And those twitch-kill "14-year-olds" place will be in front of my scope ;)
LeonVesper  +   1229d ago
Nah, I would love to be in the thick of it and be the one who throws C4 in their twitch-kill style.

If anything Bad Company 2 taught me about Battlefield; be unorthodox in shooting and use all tools at your disposal.
SKUD  +   1229d ago
BF3 is too good for that nonsense. Thank you for keeping it out.
dinkeldinkse  +   1229d ago
Good to hear,
Killstreaks are a noobification feature that needs to die. They don't need to spread.
EVO-OM3GA  +   1229d ago
But last time I checked BF1 and BF2 didnt have killstreaks so why would they suddenly decide to add it to the third installment..

Anyways I dont know anyone who plays BF and is disappointed that they dont have killstreaks.

Battlefield is Battlefield & Call of Duty is Call of Duty
both games appeal to the same gamers but each have things that gamers enjoy about them.

BF has killstreaks...

its called filling up a vehicle with a bunch of people and shooting rockets out the back
EVO-OM3GA  +   1229d ago
That was funny bubbles!
egidem  +   1229d ago
I agree. I don't find killstreaks appropriate.

EVO-OM3GA's opinion is absolutely right. Just yesterday while playing rush in Bad Company 2, there was an enemy tank that happened to be packed full of guys, all driving near one of our M-COM stations killing people on the way.

I was playing as an assault, so I ran next to the tank, placed C4 on it, and blew the huge tin can. I got lots of points for killing them, defensive kills from the M-COM station, as well as avenging my buddies' deaths, protecting others and IT FELT GOOD!
Farsendor1  +   1229d ago
im pretty sure in an interview a dice guy said they needed to tweak the console version a bit more before its shown. there has been a lot of bf3 stuff so im not sure where the video is.
zeal0us  +   1229d ago
Killstreaks been babying some of you gamers up for far too long. Its a good way to kill those hardcore cod fan(boys) using the "cod clone" statement.

Honestly, Battlefield works perfect without killstreaks, it makes the game more balanced.

Before playing Battlefield i thought having no killstreaks was a letdown.

However after playing Bad Company 2, having no killstreaks worked brilliantly.

Why is this an article? Isn't this the sequel to Battlefield 2, why should I expect killstreaks.
Drake_Seraphim  +   1229d ago
exactly. When has Battlefield ever had kill streaks?
Ser  +   1229d ago
Good. I hate killstreaks with a burning passion.

All they're good for is promoting camping tactics.

As it should be! This is Battlefield not Call of Duty.
JC_Denton  +   1229d ago
A lack of Killstreaks is a good thing. Killstreaks not only alter the gameplay in a bad way, but encourage camping as well. Battlefield games are about working as a team to accomplish objectives. COD is about racking up as many kills as possible while not dieing, and that's it.

As Battlefield goes, it's a more realistic game than COD...much more difficult, no aim assist, no killstreaks, you can't be a lone wolf in this game...you know like in real war.
Drake_Seraphim  +   1229d ago
I want more info!
MilkMan  +   1229d ago
This property just keeps getting better and better.

And the more they differentiate themselves from the OTHER title the BETTER.
HeavenlySnipes  +   1229d ago
I don't see this as news
Never played a BF game, but I swear COD is the only game with killstreaks. As far as I know, Uncharted 3 and Resistance 3 (not really, they are just using the perk abilities as killstreaks now but before in order to use a perk you needed to get a certain number of kills) are the only other games coming with killstreaks.
Klaykid123  +   1229d ago
Yay. No camping.
waterboy  +   1229d ago
i knew this game was garbage
death2smoochie  +   1229d ago
Its garbage because you would prefer an arcade type shooter that 12 year olds can play.

Ravenor  +   1229d ago
The stupidity you type is both entertaining and horrifying. Enjoy your Autoaim Warfare 3, it's probably where you belong anyways.
RedSoakedSponge  +   1229d ago
its obvious they wouldnt use killstreaks. it would be stupidly hectic if u had a 64 player match and THEN give them killstreaks too. COD is hectic enough cos of it and thats no where near 64 players lol.
iNMyFiN4LH0uR  +   1229d ago
this game is being hyped way too much, no doubt its going to be amazing but the level of hype which stems from the ex-COD players is ridiculous and may very well be the downfall of this game when it releases.
p.s. dont say MW3 doesn't deserve ITS hype, it does, they have a winning formula with regards to its mutliplayer that not even the 'great almighty' BF3 can match. and plz don't say BF3 is more team oriented i can name 10 games that are bigger than any battlefield when it comes to competitive, hardcore, team oriented communities-MLG Halo for one.

You're just upset that this game looks better than every single PS3 or Xbox360 game out.
That makes you angry because you cannot afford a gaming PC and your need to TROLL every single BF3 thread.
I am actually surprised they have not banned you as of yet.
