Well, we haven't seen the final version of Crysis 2 yet, so, we can't make an assumption that Crytek is pulling our legs The demo was mostly a response to the outrage over the 360 getting a demo and not the pc. Having said that, I do agree, I think DICE is riding the wave atm. They are pretty much shooting themselves in the foot if they can't pull this through, so, let's hope for their sake, they do

That's because it IS a port, bad company is the console side of the series and they decided to make a pc version of it. They never claimed it wasn't a console game first.

I know it is, I remember its controversy when it first released and the petitions from the PC community. I was trying to downplay it and not upset the zealots who are adamant that BC2 isn't a console port like CoD.

Would be one thing if it was just one or two articles where Dice was saying "YEAH PC RULES!" but there have been a dozen now. Starting to think they really mean it.

And I was going to buy it just because of 64-player servers, I might have to buy it twice now.

BC2 is a console port. Just DICE has since worked a TON on the engine to the point where it seems Frostbite 2 will be much more PC oriented than console oriented. Which is interesting. Kind of reminds me of Far Cry 2's engine, Dunia. It's based off of the CryEngine 1 console engine, yet it by far runs and looks the best on PC.

Well, there's that whole Diablo III for console rumors...

Valve, Dice, and Blizzard FTW!
I really hope Dice can pull off BF3 successfully, if they don't.. every PC gamer will be ready to rain hell upon them.

I wish they would just shut up and not use these sound bytes to make hype for their games. Just release good games and let them speak for themselves.

most developers piss me off when they hype up a game like this. However given what i've seen of BF3, and having been with dice since the beginning, i gotta say they probably will live up to most of this. everyone still has to remember nothing is perfect, and you cant please everyone. im talking overall i think this game will still be outstanding. go dice!

So is BF3 from scratch?

Whats that mean >>> "It will not be a shoddy port" ?

See, I never heard of the term "port" "console port" until after mw2, bc2,BO "PC Gamers got screwed" were released.
