DAMMM!!! No more MAV lifting?! This sucks. That is like the most fun part of the game. How will we get out of map on such a great game now?

I don't get this...first they make PC players wait for consoles to "approve" the patch because DICE wants to release the patch on all platforms at the same time, then when it's done and ready to be released, PC and Xbox360 get delayed...

Makes absolutely no sense if you ask me.

This has nothing to do with favoritism for a platform and is NOT related to DLC coming to Sony first.

Just to clear up some confusion. thumb.gif

I don't believe that...especially after the numerous lies from DICE.

You know why it doesn't make any sense? The patch went into certification at Sony and MS, which meant that PC players had to wait for them to finish the approval because DICE wanted to release on all platforms at the same time. So if they are putting the finishing touches on the PC and Xbox360 patch, why not make PS3 wait a little longer?

What lies?

Seems like an odd thing for DICE to sit there and lie about.

- PC was lead platform according to them, yet after release they said they switched to consoles mid development. BF3 is a console port, I can see that by the lack of some features.
- This patch was supposed to come in February
- They would never charge for DLCs...well that one speaks for itself.

Just to name a few

EDIT: another one I could think of

- Final product wasn't necessarily representative of the beta version, yet here we are, 6 months later and they are still working on fixing some major issues and adding stuff to the game which should have been there from the beginning.

- PC is still the lead platform. You can tell that by all the PC-centric features. DICE had to switch focus towards the end of development in order to complete the game on all systems. If it wasn't for DICE coming out and saying they switched focus, you wouldn't have known that. It's definitely not a console port (please see lordikon's post on ports to see what a port actually is).
- They told us the patch was going to be delayed. Things get pushed back all the time. Nothing new here. It's certainly not lying if they told you first.
- They said they would never charge for map packs. The DLCs they are releasing are much more than map packs coming with 10 new guns and new vehicles each time and even coming with a new game-mode in the upcoming Close Quarters DLC.
- This is pretty subjective and certainly doesn't represent any form of lie. Many people have been content with the game from launch. Sure it had its issues, but pretty much every game has issues at launch. A lot of the big issues were patched early .Many of the issues in this patch are either small, came up over time, or are based on community feedback (like many of these gun balance tweaks).

you cant complain about having to wait for the patch, then ask why they couldnt just make ps3 owners wait. its a contradiction. if theyre done with that patch thats -described by you and everyone else- essential, why would they not push it out ASAP for whatever they finish? why drag everyone down for no reason.

had this been set to launch for pc first i bet half these people wouldnt even care because it benefits you. Hippocratic argument

and just in case anyone wants to throw the fanboy argument at me, i own this on pc. i just know how to look at things subjectively. yes, its kinda crap that we have to wait a bit longer, but im sure we'll get to hear about how broken the game still is anyways. think of it as a trial session, or being one of those people who waits for reviews before buying their product. wink.gif
