The next Call of Duty 4? Battlefield BC Xbox 360 version hands-on by GamePro

"Battlefield: Bad Company has all the right elements to be the next Call of Duty 4. Will it deliver?

Recently we had the chance to interview Karl-Magnus Troedsson, the senior producer for Battlefield: Bad Company. Troedsson said that Bad Company is going to be reminiscent of old Battlefield titles while also taking the series in brand new directions. "

I'm a huge fan of the Battlefield series. Bad Company is one of the major reasons I got a PS3.

It's one of the major reasons I got a PS3 because before the PS3 all I had was a Wii. Sheesh, it's just non-stop console wars with you folk, innit?

It is a multiplatform game though, in fact this preview is of the 360 version. o_O

GIJeff4565d ago

but he probably wanted it on free online and better hardware. :)

FirstknighT4565d ago

But you get better online on the 360. I can see if any of my Halo 3 or COD4 buddies are playing Battlefield with ease. Sorry but you can't do that. :(

@ FirstknighT
While I agree that Live is better at the moment, are you saying that PS3 owners are unable see what people on their buddy list are playing?

If thats the case then you are very misinformed.

If you mean "while in-game" (in some games you can see) then I can see your point.

I for one, for all our good, hope that Sony improves on this.
If Sony makes the PSN as good as Live, guess what?
Microsoft will have to do something drastic.
Like maybe make Live free. I would love to see that happen. Anyone that disagrees with free Live is lying.

Who wouldn't want Live for free. Thats an extra game a year.
Or several downloadable games from PSN or Live.

Competition = Good for all

Wow, look a disagree.
That means someone likes to pay for something that should be free.
Something that was free long before Live and something that continues to be free to this day on the PC and the PS3, yet they still defend Microsoft and they really believe they should pay to play online.
WOW! What a fool.

What the hell is wrong with you people? lol

Well I wont be surprised that's what is going to happen eventually. PSN will finally get their act together and probably get to the level of Xbox Live. If they do than I expect Live to be free. But currently Xbox Live is years beyond better than PSN.

Just like 99% of the multiplatform games look, play and sell better on the 360 :)

Hopefully they have really used the destructable enviroments to create a truly next-gen experience. It would be fun to finally play a fully singleplayer BattleField.

The more I hear about this game, the more I want it!
When is it released?

Thanks MK

MK_Red4565d ago (Edited 4565d ago )

GamePro says winter 2007!!!
But really, the game will probably be released in Feb or a bit later if it doesn't get delayed.

EDIT: Don't mention it :)

perseus4565d ago

EA websites say it's out on Mar.24 in the US, Mar. 28 in the EU, and March in Japan.

This game has the chance to change the face of military shooters forever as the fully destructable enviroments would mean no hiding place and such. Hopefully it's not just a gimmick.

kr90914565d ago

I totally agree! Ever since I watched the downladable video preview from DICE on PSN I have been amazed by the destruction of the environments!

TheIneffableBob4565d ago

From what I've seen of the game, it's just a gimmick.

They can atleast learn a lesson or 10 from Battlefield BC.

Were to far ahead in the Next. Gen. of gaming to be given more mediocrity.
