post #21 of 125
24 is still better than COD's 18 lol...

They had to make cuts, and it's STILL better!

IIRC MAG supports 256 on the PS3, still looks decent and plays well IMO. Trim the fat and get 64 players in a game if the fans want it that much.

I'm only scared that...

12 vs 12

large map (e.g. Heavy Metal ...type map)

people in vehicles, jets, choppers

people wandering around trying to find others to kill.

A WHOLE LOT OF EMPTY.

I REALLY hope this isn't the case.

It's not so much that Halo/CoD can't support as many players.. it's that those games are suited for smaller sized games. Battlefield flourishes with huge numbers, and so ultimately the console edition won't really be up to par with the PC release (not that that's ever the case). DICE is "apologizing" (for lack of a better term) because the ignorant few might few this as "PC favoritism/elitism".

Less vehicles and smaller maps. Bad Company 2 on consoles it still super fun, despite the smaller player limit. It feels a lot bigger than it actually is.

Wow, an honest and straightforward answer to the console whiners. Your five year old console can't handle it! Not that all console gamers are whiners, I mean the whiners that happen to play on console.

MAG looks waaay worse than Battlefield, otherwise they couldn't support that high number of players. DICE said the same thing in reverse for why they have the player limit they do. Trust me, there is NO fat to trim.

Yeah my buddy made me get a 360 to play BC2 with him. Has to be the worst thing I ever done. It was literally painful and a waste of money. Luckily I got red dead which was a life saver

I know how it feels; I put in almost 600 hours on the 360 version before I discovered pc gaming.

I wasn't even talking about the multiplayer aspect of killzone 3, I was just talking about the graphical achievements of it and how awesome the single player was campaign is. It reminds me of Crisis 2 on the PC. Crysis 2 on the PC with the DX 11 upgrade and high res. texture packs reconfirmed my allegiance to PC gaming. Playing Crysis 2 in that manner is the most indulged I've been in a single player campaign in a long time. Even at an average of 30fps. Crysis 2 is definitely my favorite single player game.

64 person multiplayer on the BF3 battlefield will be 10 times as immersive as both of those single player campaigns combined.

Me and my cousin keep on buying them only because the games on it is more suitable to our taste then what the PS3 has though now its changing since both systems are getting the same game now compared to say 1-2 years ago, and the online features LIVE has trumps PSN. That said, I havent played much consoles as of late lol. I am still a pc gamer.

I play BC2 on my PC and am happy with it. I tried playing BC2 on the PS3......its not happening lol.
