I'm really glad moh was cod-ified. I think it was then that they realized they need their own flavor and now battlefield will maximize its potential because of it.

Running for cover when you hear jets manned by gamers and not auto kill ai is much more intense. Fulfilling if you put a 50 cal bullet through the cockpit

was playing bad company 2 online the other day and managed to headshot the pilot of a blackhawk after its mini-guns were tearing us up.
Then a few minutes later i picked up a passenger in a helicopter from on top of a wind turbine on heavy metal, epic leap of faith from 300 feet up.

I've stopped trying to compare cod and battlefield because iv realised that they're such different games in terms of scope, variety and fun.

Well they sure have mastered talking about the console version. Now they just need to dive into the showing part.

There is PS3 footage shown you know

Yes, I assume you are talking about the 2 seconds of PS3 footage in the trailer, or the video of the devs playing it on the jimmy fallon show. But that's a pretty weak amount considering the game is out soon.

I mean, everyone knows why they are doing it. The console footage of BF3 will be comparable to both BFBC2 and MW3. There goes the huge competitive advantage that they currently have on PC.

And after they do that, then they have to focus in on why the GAMEPLAY is so much better than BFBC2 or BF2, and why is that again?

Don't get me wrong, MW3 hasn't realeased ANY reasons why gameplay is going to be a huge step up from MW2. But MW3 isn't being hyped up as the clear winner, like so many N4G articles are calling BF3.

Does the console version look a ton better than BFBC2? And what are the multiplayer gameplay changes new to BF3? SO MANY articles and comments pretend like these 2 massive holes are already filled in.

But I'll probably have better chances at a mature non-biased conversation talking directly to David Jaffe than posting on N4G.

He's totally right, It's a "press R1 to win" j/k
