Would you donate $5 and petition to EA for widescreen development?

WHAT? pay them even more money. HELL NO

I'd say BF2 is a lost cause by now since they probably won't even release any more patches for it. If anything I would be petitioning to them to make sure it is in the upcoming BF3.

cnc3 is published by EA and it supports 1680x1050. Is that the only game?

Yeah, but FOV doesn't matter as much in a RTS game. EA is yet to release a FPS that has true widescreen support.

Looks like Crysis will be the first...heh

idk why it's so hard for game developers to support widescreen resolutions. Supposedly in battlefield EA dosent want it becuase it gives widescreen gamers an advantage which is bullcrap becuase even counter strike source, which is way more competitive supports widescreen and theres no advantage.

No widescreen support because it would give you an advantage is a stupid reason to not support it. Having a faster computer is an advantage. Better internet is an advantage. Better keyboard and gaming mouse is a better advantage. You pay more to play more. I would find it hard to believe at all that someone would not allow widescreen support because they would have an advantage.

^It's called a good excuse...

Nothing irritates me more than a lack of proper widescreen support, or even worse, a lack of it at all. It's especially insulting when it's a port of a console game which supported widescreen resolutions, like Rainbow Six Vegas, Just Cause or the latest Need for Speed games.

Ridiculous. Thank god for community created hacks and solutions.

Yeah, I read this advantage BS a long time ago at Widescreen Gaming Forums. Those EA guys are really stupid. What about the 360 version of Battlefield 2 Modern Combat?. If this game supports widescreen, what happens with users that have a 4:3 tv?. OMG teh cheetah only buy widescreen. BS. However, congratulations must go to EA for CnC3, this game is a great example of good widescreen support.

And the guy with the $5 idea, I would never pay it, because all games will be widescreen sooner than later. How many MAJOR games have been released this year?. And how many did not support widescreen?. Very few, if any.

It's funny because Red Alert supported Widescreen. That's right, the original C&C Red Alert. You could pretty much change the res any way you wanted. :D

But yeah, BF2, all EA Sports games, etc. Terrible/no widescreen support.

UEFA Champions League™ 2006 - 2007 is the first Football (aka Soccer) game from EA with WS support.

Shadowrun is a great game. Halo 2 would be better if it were a bargain priced game. The multiplayer in Halo 2 is terrible.

Why? What do you see wrong with it? It reminds me of Counter Strike but with magic and better graphics.
