    There are a billion ways to cut corners to make something work. Dumb the graphics down a little - I don't care.

    Oh well...

    A shame. How different can it feel with 24 players still?

    I hope Rush is still the main game mode...

    Well, it's EA - and with them I've come to expect disappointment in one way or another.

    In what way? Their games are better than ever.

    Are they? MoH is better than ever? The Sims is better than ever? Mass Effect, Madden, NBA, NHL, etc., etc., etc. - are all better than ever? I scoff at the notion!

    When an EA game was released in the 90s, it was like THE BEST of the best. These days, you cross your fingers and hope everything works like it's supposed to.

    They're more mediocre than they are bad these days, which is better than they've been, but the best mark I can give them at this time.

    If that's the case they might as well just call it Bad Company 3.

    They'll probably stil have Rush and Conquest, methinks.

    I'm still thinking a jet with 12 on 12 will be completly pointless. Normally you send a jet in to do a big job - aka, take out an important building, destroy a semblance of tanks, etc. You don't kill a guy or two with a jet. How much money would that waste in rocket fuel, for starters? And a single missile can cost over a million dollars easy. Is a million-dollar investment to kill one guy worth it? They haven't put any thought into this!

    You're talking about a game where players routinely crash a $16 million helicopter into each other.

    Interesting to see how this differs from Bad Company.

    Amazon.de have a Limited Edition listed, my German isn't great so I have no idea what's different about it.

    Portable view - Never forget.

    Hope they don't compromise the game by trying to be all things to all men with these daft controllers and 3D..

    Yes I hope it can be all things to all men with daft controllers and 3D and not be compromised too.

    What's the betting that there will be some terrible pr-order bonus map or weapons, ruining the fun for everyone.

    Whenever you see an option to get a webpage "Google Translated" -TAKE IT!!!!

    The award-winning online vehicle combat experience gets even better: Jets let the heavens tremble, when the sound barrier is broken and, water and aircraft to disappear in the haze of the battlefield land.

    There's no details on Limited Edition extras but you should be content with the fact that jets let the heavens tremble in this Battlefield:Bermuda Triangle

    Ok, but I when I didn't use google to find it, it doesn't give me that option.

    It seems logical to assume that the games will be content-wise identical on all platforms and only have technical differences.

    PC players would LOVE if the consoles were missing out on something. I don't think so, you bastards! :D

    The main issue if jets are in or not is simply the size of the maps, you need big maps for them to be viable and I mean big, your looking at at least 1-2km in either direction. Most 32 players maps were simply not that big in BF2 and I can't see any reason why they would change that in BF3.

    There will probably be a couple of them that will have jets but most won't on the console.

    Well, I can see having jets in a game of Rush being difficult - given the map is cut down into small-ish sections.

    Battlefield 1943 had planes, though. They weren't Jets, but c'mon.... same thing. If they're REALLY planning on jets flying at the speed of sound in the game, no map will be large enough unless it's the size of every map from every BF ever made combined. You'll have passed the entire map in a millisecond otherwise.

    Unless they implement the lawnmower jets that the badguys fly in Team America.

    LOL - yeah, but they're talking about flying at the speed of sound. I wonder how fast that'll translate into when you're playing.

    I imagine jets will feature prominently on maps with coasts, what with the sea being relatively easy to have a lot of for not much resource hit.

    Sigh I get the feeling this isn't going to be the game I want it to be. I think the golden days of massive battlefield battles with jets and helicopters being challenging to pilot. Bad Company was the worst step the franchise ever took imo.

    Right, because it's taken so many other steps.
