They've been pretty much dead on with all the info they gave me ( HL2 release, Far Cry patch release, etc.. )

Yay! All us non SLi owners are gonna love the low res look! DICE isn't known for the speedy engines... CES Demo was running on SLi and it even lagged abit...

What do you mean? I heard you need a pretty high end machine to run this game, but there is no way in hell i'm wasting 1000$ to run it maxed out. I can deal with jaggies and save myself 500$ :lol:

They still have time to patch it up....maybe they improved stuff over the time. BF2 is mainly a MP game, so they cant really make it the best lookin' game EVER. Also, how many people actually have SLi? Like 3 people? ( lol ) They're aiming this game @ the main market, so they better optimize this game like mad. :mad:

EA today announced financial results for the fiscal third quarter ended December 31, 2004. Net revenue was slightly down, while titles such as NFSU2, NBA Live 2005, Battle For Middle Earth, Third Age sold more than 1 million copies. EA commented that they were also in the running for the MLBPA license but did not think the economics made sense, so did not fully pursue it. The ESPN license will open the door to new franchises such as Poker, Fishing and possible X-Games based titles. In regard to Ubisoft, EA says it wants to be a good shareholder and it is keeping options open, which could mean acquiring additional shares (but it stressed it would not overpay), or simply selling the current stock. Most important it was revealed that Battlefield 2 has been delayed until Q1 2006 (which is between April & June), same with the MoH: Dogs of War. Read more for the detailed financial information..

Atleast the demo is still coming early Febuary. ;)


I really wish these companies would put off giving release dates they cant meet. Take the id route and just tell us when it's done, it's done.

"The 2006 fiscal year starts in the second quarter of 2005. The game has been delayed to Q2 2005."

The game is coming out in March 23rd, that's what the set release date was like a month or two ago. They might've delayed it to April or May, but no more than that. They didn't just announce it in March a month ago, and now realize they have another year. This game is coming in 2-3 months definetly.

We have some breaking news for you today, Battlefield 2 has been delayed. At an Electronic Arts teleconference today, they announced that Battlefield 2 will be delayed to the first fiscal quarter of 2006(April-June 2005).

They need some more time to make a deal for an exclusive license to the FPS genre before they release it. :D

Might be possible, but i doubt it. ID would probably have buyers choice, failing that an auction. I mean, ID practically invented the genre with Wolfenstein 3D. (Do not mention Duke 3D as the first 3D game. 3D realms haven't released DNF yet, so Duke 3D doesn't classify.)

So with that release date thing cleared out, we can now go back to expecting the demo in feb!

Why would Duke 3d be classified with Wolf3d?
Wolfenstien 3d = 1992
Duke Nukem 3d = 1996

Oh and just out of curiosity, I looked up the first FPS game. And here it is in all its 1977 glory :lol:

Because some people don't classify Wolf 3d as a 3d shooter. They say it's only a 2d shooter.

What gaming engine is BF2 using? I take it they made their own for BF2? The graphics look amazing and I hope that it will run good on today's high end PCs. Can't wait for the demo. I hope they put out a MP demo so everyone can play :)
