I'm not 100% sure on that as it's what someone I know told me.. Sorry I should have said that in my other post. So yeah don't take my word for it! read around and see what people are saying or what the 'official' word is.

I'd say that's doubtful, I haven't read that anywhere else, typically the only limits that they put on consoles are the player limits per match which are typically higher for PC versions of most games because they allow dedicated hosting whereas on consoles you're restricted to PSN/XBL offerings.

I'm seriously thinking about building a PC to play this, or finishing my dual-boot on my Mac and seeing if it'll play it.

I almost positive that the consoles wont get jets. Mainly due to the fact that the maps for consoles will scaled down a bit. They probably wont be big enough to allow for jets.

You sir, would be incorrect!

Bach mentioned Battlefield Bad Company 2 as a point of reference, noting that its maps "weren't really small on console." Having spawned at the base with no vehicles many times, we'd be hard-pressed to disagree. Speaking of vehicles, Bach did confirm that jets will be available in the console version, so virtual pilots can rest easy.


So there you guys go, maps will be SLIGHTLY smaller for consoles, but JET(pack)S WAS YES!

Well good for the consolers then. They'll get pretty much most of the experience us pc gamers will get.

I'll probably get this, even if I've hated on it soooo much
I only have a dual core processor though, and that's the minimum requirement... I don't like playing with the minimum system requirements, so I'll probably have to invest in a quad core.

Us with consoles and no super-pc get the silly diet version. There might be jets, but I bet it will be limited to one per side for the biggest maps only.

I think its unreasonable to expect the same gameplay experience on a console that has years-old hardware and can't achieve the the graphics that most DX11 games bring. If I had hundreds of dollars to blow for a new rig, I would totally get it for the PC, but I guess it's the console route for me. that said, the people that I know that are playing the alpha (on consoles) say it's amazing either way so I'm not too worried.

You're going to want a good quad-core, probably something like an Intel i5 2500K or i7 920, something along those lines, or an AMD Phenom II X4, I have the 965 Black Edition @ 3.4GHz myself. 4 to 6GB of good DDR3, and a graphics card like an NVIDIA 560, 570, 580 or ATI 6870, 6950, 6970, it all depends on your resolution. Apparently the Frostbite engine scales pretty well and it's nicely optimized (I know dick about code and game engines) so you won't need a crazy crazy rig to play on modest resolutions. The super high end gear is for those of us with massive monitors and demands for 60+ FPS/the need to brag to other people about how big their graphics card is. I think consoles have FPS caps of 30, and you don't hear people complaining about stuttery gameplay. If you're building a system from scratch, I'm sure the equivalent of $1000 could get you what you want.

I've got the AMD 965 BE, 8GB of decent DDR3, and I'll hopefully have a GTX 570 come Christmas, or possibly something better. Then, when I'm done with my school year from hell, I can let the neckbeard flow and play the .... out of this game, with awesome framerates.

This game is going to bone the .... out of anything Call of Duty, though MW3 might be decent. I'll probably give it a try, no point being a purist if a CoD game happens to be fun too.

Is anyone else sick of not having a console that can't keep up with a pc? Seriously, when are they going to put out something competent enough to handle this? I'm sick of feeling like "that guy" because I don't have tons of money to buy a super computer with.

I am seriously tempted to get an ultra high end pc rig built just for 64 player battlefield madness.


I remember the utter mayhem that was Battlefield 2 64 player servers.



24 only for consoles sucks dick.
