"In the opinion of many gamers, many recent multiplatform games seem slightly, but noticeably under-developed on the ported platforms when produced with a lead platform in mind." - MP1st
Plz let Caspian Border come to consoles also for the beta.I'm sure many feel that way also.
I really hope so man. But we're getting down to the wire! Hopefully it's possible.
Man Caspean Border is the Map Console players have to try. Maybe they will release a new demo near release. Hopefully
I simply just dont care if PS3 is gonna have high rez tex file which Ihave to install it on PS3 HDD ... I got plenty of space and I dont care if BF3 takes 10Gigs of my HDD space ... make it happen DICE. On Topic ... Excited about Caspian Border to be released as Beta .... :))))
@deadpoole Yeah it seems the 360 is also going to have this rez tex file to be installed as well. And don't worry, we have to deal with 2 disks hehe.
This whole PS3 install size and Number of disk on 360 issue is over rated. If anything, I'd LOVE to see SONY allow us to install games on PS3 like we can on 360. It loads the game fast and the textures can be pure awesome! I played Fallout 3 and Fallout NV on 360 with disk and it was hell slow. Then I installed these games and it becomes a lot smoother and loads quickly. Caspian Border on PS3/360 on yes, please make it happen during beta!
They are very stupid for giving this map we have now in the beta.. Every one knows BF is mostly about vehicles so what in the world where they thinking giving us a broken map with no vehicles???
It's fun map, but you're spot on. It does NOT represent what Battlefield really is about. New players aren't getting the real BF experience.
it's pretty obvious who they were trying to attract
Criminal: I would say that only the pc players get the real battlefield experience. I´ve been looking for this experience since Dice first launched battlefield on ps3 and still havent found it - the low numbers of players on console just can´t give me the big scale battlefield experience.
I rather them focus on polishing up the console version and fixing all the bugs than taking time to make a beta release of this on console. They can however for not letting console owners be in the Caspian Border beta give us an extension on the beta already out.
I'll play Caspian when It's final version. No point in playing on the old beta build.
Id play the old beta build over a new cod any day of the week. Ya I was one of those guys spamming refresh for half an hour trying to get in the server and playing for hours when I got in. I would never do that for metro. if you're saying that because you didn't get to try caspian before. sucks to be you
I still haven't played Caspian Border, but it reminds me of one of the maps on 1943. It was a U shaped island, can't recall the name. But, that map was great! I'm sure Caspian will be even better than that one, specially with frostbite 2 and jets.
@criminal The U shaped map is called Wake Island. It's a classic BF map that has been in every one of the main BF games. Strike at Karkand is just as popular, but it didn't get a remake until now. @evrfighter I'm not "just saying that". You've taken my whole comment out of context. I'll play it when it's finished.
I like developers that try to optimize their games on all platforms. I know it's not possible with all games because it depends on the budget they were given
No way, they are just saying that to get heat off their back. I mean capsian border was INCLUDED with the pc beta from the start, you just couldn't get into rooms without a password. The pc download was almost 4gb, the consoles were around 1.3gb. Dice was just telling us about how old this beta build was because of the authentication it had to go through for months with microsoft and sony. Now they are saying there might add caspian border to the console betas with 3 days left of the beta? They would have known if it was going to happen for sure or not long before the beta even started. That is if what they have been telling us is true about the reasoning for giving us the old build. No way and I am ashamed they would even try to tell us something like that.
Yeah, I think you're right there's a slim chance of this actually happening. Unless they extend the beta for another week or so. I just can't wait to play caspain border.
pleeeeaaaaaaaaaase extend the beta, it's the only game i've been playing.
Ah man, i was delighted when i read this because im dying to play on Caspian Border after too many hours on Metro. But unfortunately the points you made make sense and it does indeed seem very unlikely they will add the map. Then again Aeon below makes a good point too, maybe because of the bad reaction to the beta, especially people stressing that they should of showed off a bigger map and vehicles to really demonstrate what Battlefield is all about, then just maybe there's a chance they want to fix that. Heres hoping.
People are expecting too much now aday's... me me me... is all I hear. A BETA is for TESTING not for experiencing the full game. They probably wanted to test the servers. If you want to experience the full game don't play the BETA. If you want to help them test and polish a bit more and see some of the game before launch then join the BETA and give constructive feed back on bugs and glitches. Sorry off topic but so are some of the comments I guess This also is more of a rant not an attack at anybody specifically I just find the bad press they are getting might be a little over done as usual.
Everyone disagreed with me and commented back with responses that are beside the point. I HAVE THE PC BETA therefore I will be able to play caspian border all weekend. I don't freaking care if it is on the beta or not. I will be able to play it in a few weeks. My problem is my favorite gaming developer is openly telling stuff to the public that they know isn't going to happen.
yep I agree fully with what you say plus maybe in 2 or 3 years when BF4 is upon us dice might jus give the general public the finger to a open beta because of all the shit they been getting and jus have a closed beta for invites only. it's a shame I think they give us a taste and everybody moans at it, me personally cannot get enough of it I love it.
It's not like it matters that much....The game is coming out in like 3 weeks anyways.
Jesus I give up on posting comments on n4g, they barley skim over the comment and post back to a point I wasn't even trying to make. Point, dice lies intentionally....
Dice: "Caspian Border is not going out to the public" *Few days later* Dice: "Caspian Border is open to the public now" Honestly, I think this is almost a response to the backlash the beta has gotten, just my opinion, the beta is great even though I still don't like Operation Metro! :P
Sure it's probably a reaction to the negative press that Operation Metro has gotten. Those that KNOW the game Battlefield have to know that this is not at all representative of the full game. (or at least they should) Those that don't will get a taste of the open map, vehicle driven war that Battlefield truly is.
KUDOS to DICE. I already have the PS3 and the 360 versions paid off and pre ordered. Cant wait.
yes please new map! it's not that i hate metro it's the outside parts of metro i hate.
why are they keep denouncing and dodging the 360 version and its fans??? didn't BC2 sold better on 360?
Considering that the 360 usually gets all of the attention, you would think you would be able to just chill for once and let another platform get some attention.
360 don't gets all the attention, it'ps3 who don't have enough attention too many time (but more and more are focusing on ps3 as lead platform), enough to have same version most of the time, but not enough to have the best form ps3", like dice said : "“I wasn’t saying Rage was looking bad. But many games don’t focus enough on PS3. On BF3 we have had PS3 as a focus from the start.”
Yes it did, but more people played online on PS3. If you look at BC2 global stats on both consoles they are near identical, and PSN was out for nearly a month.
Platforms get as much attention as there is money in that. It seems BFBC2 sold well on PS3 and EA has an agreement with Sony. You should redirect your claims to Microsoft and ask what they did with the money you spent on the system/games/Live (well, I know the answer, they invested it in Kinect).
Thank you DICE for focusing on the PS3! i love you! lol
“Caspian Border will be coming to all platforms at launch, They never stated it wouldnt.? Only thing they stated is all 64 player maps on pc would be scaled down to accomodate console's to give performance. But this will mean a cut in other areas too not just the map. Just like bad comapny 2 had beleave was 17 vehicles to consoles i beleave was 7-8. performance is what dice is looking for as well as quality. So less latancy witch is always good.
Good looking out EA. Us PS3 users do need some attention; getting crap versions of multi-plats isn't cool at all.
Most of the time it's exactly the same version (not enough for ps3, sure)..;don't spread the legend from xfans "bububumultiplatform are better on xbox"...it's not the case 99% of the time. but like article said : "This is why many games look and run best on the 360, when technically, they “should” run better on the PS3 or PC, who have the stronger hardware."
Finally a developer who understands that you have to use everything in the PS3 has to offer in order to get the best game possible. Since the beginning of this console gen, developers and PS3 haters have clung on multiplat games look better on the 360. The truth is only a hand full of developers have even tried to use the PS3 to it's full capacity. I'm looking foward to BF3. It's going to be a beast of a game.
Probably because developers only have limited resources to develop and you can't just send your whole team to develop for one console (unless it's an exclusive obviously). Plus DICE said that the game was going to be developed for PC mostly, then 360/PS3.
Just hook us up please..bf is about vehicles also...its one of the best thing about bf..i hope dice didnt lose some noobs..cmon all the trailers show jets tanks and choppers...then you give us frackin metro...dice do the right thing and hook us up..even for the last few days here...show these cod fanboys what bf is all about..i bet you sell more games
caspian is absolutely amazing and has convinced me to buy this game (was gonna skip). but now no way! 64 players on caspian is insane. Best shooter on the market hands down. console gamers if you have pc friends ask them to let you check out bf3 on pc... you will not be disappointed.
just played caspian maxed out on pc for about an hour and a half....EPIC MAP 32v32 greatness, the jets are a blast, but i love driving the growler, (basically a golf cart with a machine gun that goes like 70 mph) and capping some points! Freakin beauty of a map and a beauty of a game! Graphics on caspian moving up a hill into the sunlight with everything clicking just right at 60 beautiful frames, man....what a game....time to go back!
Of cours it's much easier to port from the PS3 to the 360 than the other way around.
If this game comes out at the end of this month, why are we still dealing with a beta? Shouldn't there be a full playable demo by now?
that be nice for the caspian map on ps3 beta,but im sure they know even if they were nice enough to let people try it if some jackass finds 1 thing not perfect with it there will be a flood of hate mail and pissy pant gamers who will cancle the pre order.
Right, so I'm gonna be a little disappointed if caspian border doesn't come to the x360... Also I checked and is the BETA only up till the 10th of Oct. (meaning this coming monday?) If i'm wrong please correct me.
most people will come here to troll bout the superiority of the PC version just 2 annoy ps3 or xb360 players. i am one of those people. P.S dont judge me. i have both consoles but i find PC better.
i might change my mind if ill play some caspian :D
