Could be, because Live Anywhere makes the combination.

Actually I don't think it'll come that fast. But well I have played it over a year when this would be true on my 360.

Halo comes 2 years after the release on XBOX, and actually I wouldn't care. Thing is: it's going to sell the 360 this Christmas, because there is nothing to compete with it on the other consoles.

And other thing, with Source, Unreal Engine 3 combined with DX based 360 with it's own adding API control of effects up on the DX10 level or even above, games like Crysis will be best on 360.

As long as they are exclusive to 360 and PC, only one of them is a console and that will have the best games around compared to the other consoles.

Bioshock. It's also on PC. Problem? Nope. But the PS3 doesn't have it

PC gamers and console gamers don't cross paths too often. Halo of course went to PC. Being a console gamer, I'm happy to see the PC guys getting some love. I'm' not sure why Dante1 thinks it's so funny. That's like saying it's funny that "PS3 sucks" because Unreal 07 is going to PC. Console and PC cross platform gaming is good for business and the industry.

if so who cares, I'm not playing any shooter or third person game with a keyboard and mouse.

Also I don't feel like having to spend 1.5g's on a PC to match the 360 or PS3.

What a disgrace to the "Ssonyfanboyclub"

I wouldn't be surprised if this game did come out on the PC, like others mentioned with Live anywhere.

Waiting 5+ years for a sequel or whatever? Yeah, I’m over it.

There's no reason they can't release smaller projects in between large releases. They're just obsessed with only AAA blockbusters. They forgot that's how a lot the modern giant ips today got started.

To a degree….new blockbuster IP’s have always taken a while though. You just don’t feel like it’s as long because you don’t focus on what you don’t know about yet as a gamer. For example before the last of us 1 did anyone really care? No we were focused on Uncharted. Then what’s that new IP hits you become hyper focused on clock watching for sequels.


Should EA Follow Call of Duty's Developer Cycle for Battlefield and Release Spinoff Franchises?

EA following the Activision route of releasing a Call of Duty title every year for the Battlefield franchise could be a good thing for fans.

They can't even get their main games right

Nitrowolf214h ago(Edited 14h ago)

I know, which might do the franchise wonder if another dev made their own take on it, or made a better game.

Outside of COD releasing every year, they have three studios working on the franchise, with three different games. At least when one is really bad you have another studio to look forward to

But knowing EA, they'd prob find a way to screw it up. At least there's Respawn head now leading one

They as in dice if ea tossed the ip to another dev it would be interesting to see what we get.

They need to follow everything they were doing before 2012

Like mentioned in this article, why have we not had a Bad Company 3? BC2 had such personality and the destruction in mp was quite amazing for its time. Heck, remake BC2. Probably my most played military shooter of all time.

Or remake Battlefield 2. That's my favorite in the series.

They should turn it into a mobile pay to win game.


Last Train Home Review - National Epic | GosuNoob

Last Train Home is a wonderful, highly original game, created by the people fascinated by the epic struggle of their grandfathers. The emotions and passion intertwined with the code are inescapably evident, and that’s a literal storm of fresh air compared to the flat, big-budget games designed by the committee.
