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.

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 :/


cod 4 graphics were really good at the time. MAGs isnt, but then you wouldnt expect it to be for a 256 player game.

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.

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!
