Or quoting the guy that asked them to stop and telling him/her it's all pointless..

I'd say they are about equal.

Why the hell does it matter? Almost every developer outsources. Not every studio has a specialised team for every job. They did what they had to in order to make the project better. If you don't have sufficient in-house resources then you have to pay someone else to do it.

I'd muc rather they paid the extra for an experienced team to do the work than passing it to 'John' who made a poster once in Photoshop when he was working at 'Lost Pet People Inc'.

I can't believe people are moaning! The game was made wasn't it?

No wonder it's so counter intuitive and worthless, even older games like tf2 have a much better ui. And yes, BC2 was better, you know why? Cause all I find myself playing is B2K which is BF2, so essentially nothing original on this game is worth a ...

I LOVE battlefield, and this game broke my heart... if I wanted to play COD I would have done so, might have to start playing the old 1942 just to heal my wounds.

Another interesting thing about the BF3 UI was that it is all done with HTML/CSS - or at least something similar - During the beta I noticed a few bugs where elements weren't closed or formatted properly and you would get ">" or "</>" like things popping out on the front end where certain text normally should display (like KDR at the end of a match for instance).

Now that isn't particularly relativity but it goes to show that if you outsource to another company for part of your project (like UI) they might come back with a slap on solution --
I suppose it is possible the Frostbyte 2 engine uses HTML/CSS for its basic UI overlay stuff... I just figured it had proprietary methods for displaying textual data for UI purposes...

If you've used any UI developed by ASUS, you'll know just how outsourced everything is. Hell, they don't even use grammatically correct sentences in various UI's (their cloud storage being the absolute worst).

Don't really see why this is newsworthy.
