Battlefield 3 will 'NOT be shown on the Xbox 360 console at E3 2011'

@XG247: It's official, Battlefield 3 will only be demo'd to the world on the Playstation 3 and PC platforms.

The story is too old to be commented.

EA is saying "**** you" to Xbox 360 for their CoD love affair

slate912691d ago

Lol am I missing something? Where are the articles saying "XBox 360 only demo'd on ME3, MW3, Ghost Recon, etc"

Jesus this "war" is getting ridiculous...

Sunhammer2691d ago

They know that 360 gamers only care about Halo and COD. Can't wait to see what they show at Sony's conference.

SilentNegotiator2691d ago

"EA is saying "**** you" to Xbox 360 for their CoD love affair"

Or more realistically: EA is tapping what will be the lesser tapped userbase for Modern Warfare style FPS, which is being left out (for a time) from content.

EA is saying "**** you" to Xbox 360

But yet the Xbox 360 fan base bought alot more copies of Battlefield than the PS3 fan base. Man the PS3 fanboys now a days, welcome to N4G.

Look at the disagrees fly in!

qface642691d ago

whoever wrote this must feel dumb because they only demoed the PC version lol

morganfell2691d ago

BF3 vs MW3....The PS3 has the win on this one.

captain-obvious2691d ago (Edited 2691d ago )

just watched it
it was on PC
and it was

open BETA
25 Oct release date

EA had a great E3
next up Ubisoft

Wenis2691d ago

If I recall correctly, Bad company 1 and 2 both sold better on 360 than it did on PS3.

Peppino72691d ago

I can't wait to see the console version though. PC looks amazing!

KingZFlipper2691d ago

I just don't get it how Wenis gets disagrees by telling you facts. You get disagree on this site if you say a tiny little thing that is in some way against Sony. Unbelievable site.

WhittO2691d ago

Gota say, B3 looks so much more interesting and fresh to play than COD looked at that conference.

You start watching B3 videos, you watch them until they end, COD gameplay trailers are just filled with random explosions and helicopters crashing, not engaging at all.

not surprised...
Activision in Love with MS...
EA in love with PS3

shovelface882691d ago

I find this hilarious. Were it reversed, and they were showing only 360 and PC, you ps3 guys would be going crazy. It's the other way around though, so it's all good!

Hypocrisy at it's finest.

Why anyone would want to play this game on a console is beyond me. Up to 64 players on PC with full scale maps, whereas console is 24 max and scaled down maps.

Keep in mind that if you wish to play smaller matches with scaled maps, you can also do that on the PC version, so that argument is invalid.

I'll stick to using my PS3 for the great exclusives (dear god i want Uncharted 3 so bad), and my PC and 360 for everything else.

waterboy2691d ago

they did that for "consoles" cause they are trying to steal away the cod fans that was what the lower player count and smaller maps is for

Veni Vidi Vici2691d ago


Are you saying they're only doing 24 players because they want to steal the CoD players?

It's because the console's hardware and network can't handle that many people. It physically impossible to have that many people on the consoles without the game slowing down. It has nothing to do with trying to steal a demographic.

guigsy2691d ago

Maybe people don't have cash to spare on the ultra high PC requirements that it will undoubtedly need.

Venjense2691d ago

@ shoveface
I don't see people going crazy that MW3 was shown on 360 so no, PS3 only owners would not have complained like crazy.

DeadIIIRed2691d ago

Agreed with guigsy, Battlefield 3 would cost me $900 on PC. Besides the 24 player cap is not set in stone just yet.

Veni Vidi Vici2691d ago


It won't. They said if you could run BC2, you could run this game on PC. Console fanboys always think that it costs thousands of dollars to play on a PC. That's a load of BS. If you have half a brain, you can build a PC yourself and it'll last you for years. And when you do need to upgrade, you don't have to do everything. You can do just the video card or whatnot. Yes, it may cost a little bit more to play on a PC but it's not as bad as many people claim it is. That extra money is worth it IMO considering the game looks better and you have a mouse and keyboard to play it with.

Veni Vidi Vici2691d ago (Edited 2691d ago )


No it won't. Please get your facts straight about the PC. The only way it'll cost you that much is if you buy a PC pre-built.

I could build a high end PC for around $500- and that's all new parts. Considering I would transfer a bunch of stuff from my old PC, it would cost less.

I'm not going to lie and say it costs just as little as a console, but IMO, it's worth the couple hundred extra considering i get a M+KB, can use the PC for internet and everything else, and usually looks better.

MRMagoo1232691d ago


A high end pc for $500 you say lol ide like to see that and remember you said all new parts not ones from on old pc so show how your gonna manage to make a $500 pc that high end list the parts and source thanks Ide like the motherboard, the power supply, the case, the ram 8gig min thanks and the graphics card also a dvd drive because not everyone can dl a game lets see you manage that with $500

What likely happened is Activision demanded that MS not allow EA to show Battlefield on a 360 at E3.

MostJadedGamer2691d ago

"whoever wrote this must feel dumb because they only demoed the PC version lol"

Actually you must be feeling dumb because E3 has NOT even started yet. Battlefield 3 could be shown at the PS3 show tonight or they could show it on a PS3 tommorrow when E3 actually starts. E3 doesn't not actually even start until Tuesday. All these conferences today are Pre E3 conferences.

TheXgamerLive2691d ago (Edited 2691d ago )

sorry to bust the authors ignorant bubble, but miss print!!
Ha Ha, it's being demo'd all day on all 3.

and, it looks pretty damned incredible on easch one.

Excuse my ignorance, but why is this 'news'.

I have yet to see articles on MW3 only being demo'd on 360, or ME3 for the matter :/

YourFlyness2691d ago

because M$ is on COD's tip

shovelface882691d ago

You could say the same for Sony and BF3 if you so wished. Troll.

Ju2691d ago

Yes. And I hope so. :)

ActivistBike2691d ago

Sounds like someone is on a company's tip as well.

Jac5al2691d ago

I expect Sony to do some sort of exclusive DLC deal with EA for Battlefield.

shovelface882691d ago

Doubt it. With all the effort they are putting into the PC version (lead platform, designed with PC in mind) I doubt they would just screw PC players over by giving PS3 exclusive DLC.

metsgaming2691d ago

i think Jac6al meant something along the lines of a PC/PS3 exclusive dlc deal.

Jac5al2691d ago

Microsoft is doing it with CoD, It would be smart for Sony to do the same.

X-Zone2691d ago

Because halfway through the demo they would have to change discs.

YourFlyness2691d ago

or the controller will go dead...

Miiikeyyy2691d ago

damn 360 controllers needing batteries!

fear882691d ago


Why o why2691d ago



Wizziokid2691d ago

so mw3 = 360
and bf3 = ps3

in terms on the console FPS top dogs, lets see if bf3 gets times exclusive dlc for PS3 to make it even ;)

Jack-Pyro2691d ago

Not gonna happen my friend...

Wizziokid2691d ago

on my comment, aww shit it did happen ;)

Jack-Pyro2691d ago

Sorry to tell you this but getting BF1943 doesn't count as exclusive DLC, it counts as bundling another game that I already have with the damn game.

Your delusional if you think that a $10 game on PSN is really gonna disuade people from buying this on PC or 360.

Ju2691d ago

Ah, they just can't it running on the 360. LOL
