[EG]Battlefield 3 dev calls competition "lazy"

post #1 of 109
Thread Starter 
Quote:
Battlefield 3 developer DICE has fired off a few rounds at its competitors, accusing other military shooters of recycling the same old formula.
"Our competitors are getting lazy," DICE general manager Karl-Magnus Troedsson told Official PlayStation Magazine.
"They're using the same engine, the same recipe for building a game. At some point you need to take that leap. I haven't seen them take that leap since a long time ago.
"We are doing that now," he insisted. "They had better watch out. We are coming for them."
Who on earth could he be referring to? It's a wild shot in the dark, but considering all of publisher EA's recent bluster about going head to head with Call of Duty, one obvious target springs to mind.

I actually laughed when I saw the quote; my mind went straight to CoD. I <3 DICE.

Less time spent talking trash and more time spent working on the game please. Thank you. Sorry you are jealous of Activision raking in the dough with COD btw.

Regardless they can say what they want. They did the same thing before Bad Company 2. PC gamers hated Activision for lack of dedicated servers so they (Dice) made it selling point for their game. Now pc gamers are tired of Activision using the same ole engine so once again Dice has something smart to say to try and sell more titles.

Yet once again I'd bet the farm the next COD will outsell the next Battlefield by at least 2.

Actually check my Steam account out. I don't even own any COD games lol. Yet I do have Bad Company 2 and played the hell out of Battlefield 2 and 2142.

Point is the Battlefield games may be "better" but they are not pick up and play fun with no thought like the cod games are. Thus, cod will sell more every single time.

The only thing I get from Dice talking trash like this is that they are jealous. Plain and simple.

*edit*
Regardless if you call me a fanboy or not the facts do support what I say. COD outsells Dice games like crazy. I point out a fact and you get emotional and call me a fanboy. Now normally when one ignores facts and brings emotion into something it's they that are the fanboy

Battlefield fanboy anyone?

I agree with this. I can't really get into BC2 unless I'm playing with at least a couple of friends, but I can have an absolute blast playing with 23 other strangers in Black Ops.
