Studio says smaller multiplayer, "compact" maps are best compromises available.
can't argue with that, on the map front I would hate having hugs maps with only 24 players, wouldn't work. they had to be smaller on console .
That's so obvious I don't get why some people feel offended.
Some people are hurrdurr,
More and more, BF3 sounds more like CoD in disguise. Dice is not Evil, but their publisher is! Online passes, pffft.
How does a troll like you have 7 bubbles? You must have a lot of accounts to bubble yourself up with.
Isn't the beta coming in Sept. for this game? I will wait for the beta to decide on this game. I prefer 24 players and compact maps to be honest it will be interesting.
DICE needs to stop referring to the technical aspect of the console version. e-Gamers will always discuss it out of proportion and presume they know better than developers lol
Maps that are the same size as BFBC2 would be perfect , they felt huge even on consoles
Not compared to MAG's maps, but MAG does not have fully destructible environments and only has graphics as good as COD4. I hope the matchmaking will be better in BF3 than BFBC2. Since I get annoyed that one team will have 12 and another would have 4.
MAG had graphics as good as cod 4 :/ wtf? cod 4 graphics were really good at the time. MAGs isnt, but then you wouldnt expect it to be for a 256 player game.
Not compared to MAG's maps, but MAG does not have fully destructible environments and only has graphics as good as COD4.---- this made me laugh out loud at the lol king. dude must be blind
MAG have terrible graphics. But it's a 256 players game so whatever.
This is stupid. The more DICE puts on PC version, the more bullshit they will get from console players. Why dont you see that BF3 will already be great on console? If it goes like this, they will have to cut back on PC features just to avoid console shitstorm!
The 360 and PS3 are OLD tech. Try about 7 years old. When will you people understand they have technological LIMITS!? I'm a PC gamers and a 360 player. I'm buying both versions and i'll probably play the console version the most. More players isn't always better. BF2 on PC has 64 players but i always find myself playing in the 32 player servers. If you want to play the game with 64 players and bigger maps then stop being a cheap ass and buy a PC that can run it. In the mean time quit your bitching.
LOL did you even read my comment?
But but but...the Cell :( I'm sure if they can add 64 players and 1080p if they use the Cell. Sony said the PS3 is limitless!
They might not be evil but that doesn't mean EA isn't....
So stop calling it battlefield on consoles then when its only 24 people! Dice have lost the core of the franchise - the massive battles - when developing it for consoles.
i encourage anyone who wants to have the max experience to get a gaming pc. that way you can stop worrying about getting the worse version every time. One time you lose graphics, another time you lose players, then map size, then for another game its something else. If you want the best, get the best.
You really don't need much to PC game either, I got a PC for around a $1,000 last year that's still maxing out most games and a year later, those parts are even cheaper now. Just need $160 for a good enough graphics card based on the price of the 6850 which was on BF3's recommended specs. After that, your looking at around $300 for a decent motherboard and processor, and $50 each for 4GB of RAM, power supply, and hard drive (if you don't already have one). If you need a new case to fit everything, throw in another $30, and your set.
The maps in BFBC2 were pretty big, it's just that the action would 99% of the time focus in certain areas, meaning there were certain parts of a map that you wouldn't really go. I hope they try to keep the maps more lively where there's a practical, recurring reason to visit every part of the map.
. Thank-you Dice for waiting till the eleventh hour to tell ever one the console game is being gimped. Just look how bad this looks...and thats the PC... :o http://youtu.be/0MgQMoPwGwM EVERYBODY knew that the console version of this game was going to be gimped, at least those that live in reality, but the constant lying from these guys is just too much. With September 25 supposedly being the launch of the beta and the game being 11-12 weeks away, you will see more and more of these damage control articles and Dice basically begging everyone to " understand " why they created such a mess. They lied...plain and simple. They told everyone is was a next gen engine in the current gen...lie. They said the game would be no different and actual better than Battlefied 2, as you just read, no it won't, it will actual be worse. 720p, 30 fps and smaller maps...less is more in Dice's warped world. :/ It's simple...they should of shown the console footage from the beginning...BUT...they couldn't going into E3 with that footage because it looks like a last gen game beside MW3...they KNOW that. So what they basically did was make CGI trailers ( high spec PC footage ) and act like this is the game experience your going to get, ignoring the bad lighting and clunky ( no 60 fps ) animations that will actual be on display. EVEN now, they refuse to show the console footage??? A gaming journalist ask them to play the game play trailers that they showed and Dice said they are NOT available, even on PC...what gives??? Show the actual trailers the have released already on consoles and some multi-player console footage and let us compare. They even claimed the multi-player will look the same as the single player...O_o
@inside_out u think bf3's graphics suck, u must be insane. u think that bf3's graphics suck thats just wow.
They actually mentioned the map size issue in as early as April. You just aren't very well-informed. They also did a PS3 demo live on the Jimmy Fallon show. Go look it up on Youtube.
"We don't see games that have more players as a better experience, so having more players per se doesn't automatically give you a better experience." Ding! Ding! Ding! We have a winner! I'm a BF2 vet and BF:BC2 (PS3) vet, and I enjoy BOTH games equally.
I disagree with your statement. If graphics were the only difference I wouldnt say anything. But you are talking player count and map size. do you really think that equates to the same experience? Devs have to say that so console owners dont get upset and get mw3 instead. but it is a lie. And i dont like that DICE is doing that. They should just let it be.
Yeah, whatever, you're telling the truth and DICE are lying. /s Also, you can't disagree with the fact that I enjoy BF2 and BF:BC2 (PS3) equally. That's personal preference.
I am still buying the game regardless on console as its my preferred platform to play on. So they have my dollars already...but I do have to laugh at how it seems each week since E3 they (DICE) have been in full on damage control over the console versions. For me the main reason I take any issue on what the console version will turn out to be is because of the way they (Dice/EA)tried to sell the console version early on. It will be same with some minor differences due to PC being lead platform...then well player count wont be the same (read into that as not even close)....Then map sizes will be a bit smaller but will still have jets....now we are hearing rumors of destructibility being gimped and this quote about map size "More or less. When we say they are smaller, it's not that we have cut them in half. But we tried to compact them slightly to keep the action up." I fear that is PR Spin for its not cut in half...its more like 45% was cut out. Also, has anyone heard anything about the single player? I know traditionally BF games are not about the single player game but BFBC & 2 showed that Dice could actually deliver a decent single player game. It wasn't fantastic but was enjoyable. I fear BF3 is going to offer up more of a bot match Single player game than an actually story. Similar to what they did for BF2...which sucked.
inside out your comment is so stupid i dont even noe were to begin we all noe u are a mw3 fanboy so how about this leave us bf players alone and go to a forum that talks about mw3 thank you good sir btw im getting the game regardless on my ps3 the game is looking awesome!!!!
Well I went into Bad Company 2 on ps3 thinking it wouldn't be ANYTHING like on PC, and that it wouldn't be nearly as fun. I was wrong, these guys know their stuff. I will give them the benefit of the doubt (though I don't really have any doubt?) that the game will be great. I don't care if they streamline maps and whatnot, just don't lose any of the fun aspects of the game.
The game will be awesome.
DICE, MAG wants a word with you...
