sounds good

That picture is dumb. They try to trick you with the DLC... BF is ALL the PAID DLC, while CoD had some free map packs, but they are included.

Another great move by EA? Only server browser in game in console versions. Yup. This was built FOR PC USERS ALL THE WAY! DIE MW3!

Give me a break. You can build a server browser from the ground up on consoles, and it will work perfectly 100% of the time. If you try and do the same thing on PC, you're lucky if it works well on 80% of user computers. Sometimes, early builds don't even work on 80% of computers.

EA/Dice has made the right choice here. A browser-based server browser sounds like a very smart move. It means that any issues will always be server side, not client side. As luck would have it, server side issues are far easier to fix than client side ones.

Let me clarify:

Consoles = all are the same
PCs = most are different.


same = easy
different = issues



If they're all the same, there are less issues with development.
If they're all different, you have to design the product to work with EVERY configuration.


Do you see where an in-game server browser for PC games might cause some issues? It caused a TON of issues for the first 6 months after BC2 was released. I really don't want another rehash of that **** again. However, a web-based browser means that the net-code is the same on all systems, regardless of hardware configuration. Therefore, there will be less issues for PC gamers.

Wow. Nice defense. Maybe the game should be DirectX 8 and have really low res textures. I mean, that way more systems can run it.

Oh, and why is it EA/DICE are the only ones having this issue? Pretty sure Valve has done pretty alright with their "inferior" ingame browser.

Bc2 server browser sucks so much. It's extremely slow.

Bf3 one is actually nice. Browse servers from your desktop, click one, it puts you right into the game, no bs into videos, no extra loading.
