No Battlefield 3 Private Matches On Consoles For Launch

Well today, the gaming community knows why we have never seen anything about Battlefield 3 private matches. The DICE Global Community Manager, Daniel Matros responded to a tweet asking him "make this easy.. Private matches (will/will not) be in day 1.. please chose one ;) <3 U". Daniel replied back stating, "Private matches not on launch for consoles.". This is very disappointing to hear since there are quite a few hardcore gamebattles players on console. (Battlefield 3, Dice, EA, PS3, Xbox 360)

Wow, that is pretty disappointing. I hope they'll get introduced soon after launch.
Motorola  +   1406d ago
Pretty sure it will after launch
malol  +   1406d ago
since when did they add a feature after launch ?
and by that i mean DICE

i mean we are still waiting for those BC2 mod tools
they said they'll be out after lunch but
nothing happened !!

im afraid that's how DICE rolls
hopefully they do it this time
alexmac  +   1406d ago
They will. And mod tools too. They started working on BF3 instead of addons to BC2 since they know it wasnt going to be a good game for long...

busy in BF3 making the BC2 Vietnam DLC
port old maps from BC to BC2
sespact kits for BC2
and balance for BC2
and giving maps to VIP and non VIP players

no they just didnt care about it
if they did it would have been done when the game lunched

Only because of the RETARDEDLY HIGH number of people needed to start one...

I hope they add a small 4 on 4 P2P connection system so we can get nice dedicated servers but then also some private matches for like 2 people.

Agree. I want to test out jets!

You should be able to start a private match with just yourself, I really wanted this in BFBC2 so I could practice flying the helicopters... It's silly for them not to let you, it just results in a lot of bad, pilots that seem to be magnetically attracted to the nearest tree or building.
BALLARD32  +   1406d ago
It was pretty pointless to me in BC2 and 1943 because you had to have at least eight people to start one.
Anti-Fanboyer  +   1406d ago
This right here, unless you had a whole batch of friends playing the game at the same time, it wasn't really worth the effort sitting in the lobby waiting for the host to invite random people.
littlemac  +   1406d ago
Probably will be in one of the updates out of many that will be in October.

Private matches are crucial to clans and teams. Even though 1% of BFBC2 players used it, the player count to start was TOO HIGH.
littlemac  +   1406d ago
So how will Gamebattle's be played?
alexmac  +   1406d ago
Hopefully the minimum is 1 person for private match so people can practice w/ jets and helis!
bub16  +   1406d ago
this game just keeps gettin better... notice how they keep all this stuff quiet till the end and then let you down last min...
radphil  +   1406d ago
Not having 8 min private matches on launch is a complete let down?

He didn't say "complete" let down, but it certainly is a small let-down that you can't have private matches, even P2P ones, by yourself or with a small number of friends. We don't all have 7 people on hand at all times to play with, and some of us just want to practice or dick around with the physics.

It's just sad that, in this arena, DICE hasn't caught up with the rest of the industry, but this is a mere minor complaint since BF3 is still probably gonna be FPS of the year.
radphil  +   1406d ago
Yea I do agree that it's kinda a let down, but he's making it as it's gamebreaking.
SITH  +   1406d ago
Let the mad dash to get some flight experience in the aircraft begin then!
