EA has sent over a teaser trailer for their upcoming Battlefield 3 broadcast television spot featuring Jay-Z’s “99 Problems“. Battlefield 3 has 99 problems, it seems, but Call of Duty ain’t one.
Well i like but i have seen many people on youtube dont.I mean its a teaser its suposed to be short
"I feel bad for you, son."
So you like man with a strong pimphand, huh? I see ...
I'd be really surprised if they released that unedited trailer on TV here in the U.S. I like Jay-Z but I fear using "99 Problems but a Bitch ain't one" lyrics on national TV is not going to go over well.
I think the main reason people are disliking it is due to the song, which i have no problem with (pun intended).
This game looks so good. I just got a brand new PC so I can play it on high. :)
What an awesome, flamebait name for a 24 second trailer.
It's the name of the song. There's no flamebait involved.
good game garbage trailer.
How do I say this rap trailer sucks without sounding racist... I mean.. just don;t like rap, sorry. And definitely not mainstream hip hop.
Just say you don't like emenim...
Great teaser gotta love all the insecure rap haters though, damn i guess you guys cant see the "bitch" is COD oh well
Lol what a retarded choice of music for a trailer.
Screw you and your damn age-gates. I'm so sick and tired of such trivial means to 'protect' people. You can find snuff films and porn that don't even bother with such laughable attempts of 'accountability'
It's stupid. But it's also required by the ESRB
Never underestimate the predictability of stupidity
Does. Not. Fit. At. All. No I don't hate rap. It just doesn't fit.
Raps crap anyway
Depends on who you listen to.
Not the best choice for a.trailer but it definetly gets the point across
I like rap and battlefield 3 but they don't belong together especially with jay-z old ass song.
This is so.... lame.
and Call of Duty has 100 problems. So ya, it ain't got one. :P
didn't really make sense but i kind of get what u meant lol.
Why don't they use like, lamb of god or something? lol Edit: I listen to that shit all the time when I'm playing BC2. Motivates meh! ;)
I dont think lamb of god would be a better choice. Not knocking your personal taste but in terms of mass appeal rap has a larger fan base then most musical genre. I disagree with the song they chose and Im not a fan of the genre myself. Least they could have done was pick a newer and better song.
Hmm, true. I like all genres, but metal suits me more for FPS's lol.
agree man. same here.
I listen to jazz and swing typically.... :( lol Particularly Cherry Poppin' Daddies. But I also crank Metallica and Pantera so I know how you feel.
99 problems? thats not a good sign. just a month from release!
A bug/problem list as short as 99 items would be great for any software project of this size!
Yes Modern Warfare 3 is a problem for BF3. You're lying to yourself if you say otherwise. It can be the BEST GAME IN THE WORLD but people will buy MW3 because they are familiar with COD.
Jay-Z's in your Battlefield ... BAD NEWS
Jay Z? Really? Why did they have to go the Call of Duty route and associate FPS games with rap? I don't hate rap but this and BF3 don't go too well together. Maybe its cuz Linkin Park and MoH didn't work.
First ice cube invades blackops. Then ice t invades gears 3. I really hope jayz doesnt have a speaking part in the game.
5 bucks him or Kanye West are in Blops 2.
99 Problems and that song used in the trailer certainly is one...
It seems, BF want to grab as many people as possible. I suggest they be their self and they'll gain more fans than they lose. I also find it disappointing that people are canceling their pre orders because of a 25 second teaser and bad music.
Cool trailer would have chose a different song maybe one from senses fail but I want to see how the whole thing ends up. Still a good teaser IMO
