    I have found some more articles on BF3. Some of this may have already been posted, sorry if it has. But enjoy:
    Michael Pachter (whoever this is) goes on to say BF3 doesn't stand a chance against COD:

    DICE thinking about going into 3D:
    DICE Thinking About Move, 3D for Battlefield 3 - gamrFeed
    If you are using Firefox for a web browser, here is some BF3 Personas (I am using the top one, still trying to get used to it):

    DICE saying Frostbite2 can handle 256 players :eek::
    Battlefield 3 Online Can Handle 256 Players, But It's "Not Fun" - gamrFeed
    I don't know about that last one...256 players might be fun, but a bit impracticle imo.
    Anyway hope you enjoy :).

    Wow, this guy is the last of the true geniuses

    /end scarcasm

    He is saying that BF3 wont overtake the ENTIRE COD SERIES in sales when it is released!!

    So how may COD's have their been since BF2 came out?

    Maybe 5 or 6?

    I think that this guy must be paid by IW or Activision!

    I read it that it won't beat MW3. Which it won't. Simply because MW 1 and 2 have been out this whole time and BF can't compete with that level of brand loyalty. BF3 would have to be as epic as MW in both SP and MP to do well. Then maybe the brand BF may be able to push BC3 to a level that would compete against COD.

    Oh well, I suppose if they keep making COD games, then it will keep the noobs out of BF3 :)

    Games on Net have a good video interview with Karl Magnus Troedsson, General Manager of Dice. In it he talks about prone being a problem and the influence of the community etc. It's a pretty good interview. Here is the link, enjoy:

    Can anyone tell me when the next Fault Line trailer comes out. In the clip it says the 30th, will that be today or tomorrow?

    I've enjoyed playing alongside the Griffs and the Raptors over and over again more than i can stand the single-player BC2 offering.

    still - single player has no effective VOIP with the NPCs :/

    Its very frustrating playing with BC2 players who still see their multiplayer gaming in the same light as we did a decade ago.

    decent FPS games make use of VOIP technology now for teamwork - and often private VOIP is better than the ingame offering ;)
