Kotaku - Valeria got more and less than she bargained for in her copy of Battlefield 3 for the Xbox 360.
Not fail, WIN! When he reaches his max level of 50, he'll just slide in the other disc and keep on going till 100 lol.
I'd be stoked! Just craigslist the other MP disc for 40 bucks or something and make a lot of your money back.
The multiplayer is the only part of the game worth a damn. I'm sure someone would be willing to take the second disc off his hands for that $30 and spend the $10 on the online pass. $40 and the $10 for the online pass is a bit too close to retail to make sense.
"Meh whats the problem, just get up off your arse and change to the 2nd disc" Oh wait that bullshit reason, that games on multiple DVDs is okay, doesn't work here. A doiii.
I just like to know what the poor guy with two single player disks said...
Max isn't 50 btw...
@rajman Yeah you did...
not fail. some people only want battlefield for the MP so someone will be happy to buy it for £25.
Typical EA. I'm so glad Battlefield 3 isn't lighting up Metacritic or doing as well as expected. Cant stand them.
So you just sit in your room cursing EA and hoping they fail? Fun life you live.
ofcourse not, the rest of his time he praises activision. (im not using this as a way of starting flamebait or something, Raven_Nomad is a CoD fanboy.)
Oh yea EA controls the distribution of their games and monitors every single disc they create. Gtfo
I think they are doing pretty fine regrading metacritic...with 91% on the lead version that is PC i am sure its doing well as expected..
Don't go all in with "lead version". Straight up the Xbox 360 version will probably end up under 80 on Metacritic, which is a lot worse then even Bad Company 2. Traditionally the Modern Warfare branded COD games score very, VERY well. I think people have to be disappointed with the low console scores, considering Bad Company 2 was so solid.
What does COD have to do with anything? It's a great single player game. BF3 is a great online game.
^Actually, cod is both :p Go ahead, disagree if you want...but that's my opinion. I enjoy both the sp and mp. As for BF3, I'd say more people would tend to agree that the MP is where the game shines.
You make my troll sensor go off like crazy... "I'm so glad Battlefield 3 isn't lighting up Metacritic or doing as well as expected." 1. It's got a 91% on metacritic. Your precious CoD:BO that you always talk about had an 87. 2. It had 3 mil preorders. I can't even find a server on xbox right now because the 1000+ are all full. That's called doing better than expectations. Try harder...
Your basing the reviews for your game off the pc version, while your playing the 360 version. How does that make any sense?
OK. I also own the PC version(actually got it early). Same deal with servers on that. I was just basing it on the xbox servers because I just got done playing with my lil bro on 360 and it took us 30 mins just to find a server not full. Also, most reviewers only did a review for the PC version. That's why there are only 13 reviews on metacritic for 360...
@Shackdaddy - @frostyhat123 got you there..ooops and you're no.2, where did you get that figures from? 3mil? BF3 only had around 2m all platforms.. another...... ooops. Doesn't really matter coz you're a loving BF fandaddy.
@0neshot - Type "bf3 had 3 million preorders" on google. It's the first link. That would have taken you like 1 sec instead of having me waste my time explaining such a simple task to you. "ooops" As for the other comment - my response is right above you. And I'm not a fanboy. I love CoD and MoH too. Fanboys don't like other things - especially the "competition". However, based on your comments, I can clearly see that you're a troll. Either that or a loser since you're wasting your life commenting on a game that you clearly don't care about...
go back to black ops troll tard
Are you thick or what? DICE develop this game, not EA. EA just publish.
BF3 actually has a 91 on Metacritic at the moment. That's the PC version, of course, but it's the only one I care about. So yeah, it's doing quite well.
I am!!! And it's great. Better than i expected.
this kind of thing has happened too often with 360's multiple discs, i remember buying lost odyssey and got no disc 1 and 2 disc 4's i was not amused lol
i remember reading LA Noire had 2 of the same disc issues as well
Ye I remember that too, they need to stop paying gold fish to pack the games lol I'm mostly a ps3 gamer so fortunately these issues I don't need to worry about anymore :)
idk why but my MP disc doesn't not say HD-Content. It says Multiplayer/Co-op. of course I have install the HD-pack. But it just isn't written in text on my disc. Nor is the 18+ label. Different region i guess (mines Canadian)
Over at the BF forums a few people have said this has happened to them. With EA shouting loud about BF3 you'd think they would make sure the launch goes smoothly.
You can only do so much. Although yeah, game wise the release could have done better. But at the same time, 8 million people played the beta in total, and 10 million copies shipped. 80% seems like a good number for the number who prordered and played all night the first night, giving 2x more stress to the servers than even the Beta. I forgive the launch woes for that thinking about it that way, and disks get mixed up is also rare and not a huge deal if they make it right. But yeah, it going better would have been better for everyone.
this game deserves a solid 9 it would be a 9.5-10 but the server issues on 360 bring it down
Just highlights the issue of DVD9. Not a problem swapping discs up until some dude in a factory screws up... Or, this could be evidence that Dice does not know how to make a good single player game so they didn't bother shipping them all... Or this could be Kotaku doing their usual Bulls*** by replacing the sp disc with another mp disc... So many people to blame :)
Seems like this issue is bothering ps3 owners more than 360 owners as usual going by the comments ha goodtimes.
OH MY GOD this would have never happened with Blue Ray /s who cares. Bonuse give one to a frind who's to cheap to buy it, or to me. Whatever you like. Im the better option ,really i am.GIVE ME The disk YouR nOT UsinG IT. greedy.
Don't you need both discs to play the game?
lol. nice; who plays battlefield for the campaign anyway!? Side note, I can't believe the comments are going nuts with COD vs Battelefield and PS3 vs 360 whining. Guys get over it, just play your own game. They're both good and do different things. :P
Some people have nothing else in their lives to do.
I actually play all games for the campaign... I'm just not into multiplayer. That's why I typically wait for a multiplayer focused game to hit $20-30 as well.
This happened to my friend who purchased Super Mario All-Stars: Limited Edition. He received two DVD's, but not game. It was pretty funny. He bought it in WalMart.
These types of things are bound to happen. I feel bad for the person who opens their case and finds two campaign discs! Either way, they will get them replaced no problem.
LOL Oh but.. multiple discs are not a problem... LOL
They're not. Ask any PC gamer. Oh wait, i forgot to add an LOL because i think i'm cool.
LOL, very cool looking LOL no? Obviously the comment was not meant toward pc gamers. I download from steam as well on my pc. NO issues. Blu Ray, no issues. Multiple discs., not the first time there have been issues or scaling back of a game due to multiple discs. what kind of dummy answers for the pc community a question that was directed at xbox fans? LOL
I'm sure they took the Disc 2 out and replaced it with another Disc 1 just to make this crap ass article.
i doubt this really happen but on ps3 there is no way this can happen @ all :)
Speaking of lots of MP. Whats up with the weak ass map rotations in MP??? I've clocked in about 12 hrs so far and have only seen Caspian Border one time.
Damn! I guess multiplayer is really what DICE wants people to play, lol.
Just another article on Kotaku trying to get views...sigh they post 1 of 2 things...useless things, or fake things.
