    Promise to honestly tell us how crappy the console version is relatively speaking? :D

    You're probably the only person I know of who will play both extensively.

    Here, Troedsson says co-op requires two seperate machines connected over the internet. But, does not require a server.

    Keep hope alive...

    So now who thinks we get Caspian Border vs Operation Metro as the beta map?

    Would they dare run the 64 player on PC Beta, and have consoles run the 24 player version?

    Newell: We have to convince EA to come back

    Today at 4:41 pm
    by Rob Crossley

    Games disappearing from Steam is a complex issue but can be fixed, says Valve boss
    Valve has a responsibility to show Electronic Arts why it is smarter business to add games on Steam instead of remove them, studio president Gabe Newell has said.
    Recently, a number of EA-published games have suddenly dissapeared from Valve's leading online game portal. Speaking to Develop, Newell said the reason why is down to "a whole complicated set of issues".
    Last month industry sources speculated that the issue hinged on EA's desire to sell DLC directly to Steam customers, as opposed to hosting content through Valve's own portal.
    Valve takes a revenue cut from all content sold through Steam, meaning that EA's alleged strategy - if true - could allow EA to circumvent those payments.
    Certain EA-published games have been removed from Steam on days that coincide with the release of new DLC. Electronic Arts has also launched the Origin service for PC; something that is categorically a competitor to Steam.
    Newell suggested the struggle with EA is complicated, but nevertheless reconcilable.
    "I don’t think Valve can pick just one thing and think the issue would go away if we fixed that," he said.
    "We have to show EA it’s a smart decision to have EA games on Steam, and we’re going to try to show them that," he said.
    Speaking in an interview to be published soon, Newell spoke in depth about the potential for Dota 2 on a global scale, and what success outside the FPS genre will mean for Valve.
    But returning to the issue of EA, the Valve co-founder took a philosophical stance when asked if customers should expect more games to be removed from Steam.
    "Companies have to earn the right to install content on their customers' PCs on a regular basis," he began.
    "The same thing is true of Steam. We have to prove we are creating value on an ongoing basis, whether it’s to EA or Ubisoft or whoever.
    "We really want to show there’s a lot of value having EA titles on Steam. We want EA’s games on Steam and we have to show them that’s a smart thing to do," he said.
    "I think at the end of the day we’re going to prove to Electronic Arts they have happier customers, a higher quality service, and will make more money if they have their titles on Steam. It’s our duty to demonstrate that to them. We don’t have a natural right to publish their games."
    Develop's interview with Newell and its exciting new project Dota 2 will be available online soon.

    Planet Battlefield - DICE Confirms Console Server Browser in Battlefield 3

    Wednesday, 17 August, 2011 at 12:50 PST | ^Scott^ | Print News

    DICE announced today that console players will have one of the features PC players have become used to, a server browser. In previous Battlefield games, console players would have to party up with friends and you would then be put into a server automatically.

    Word has it that 2D spotting has been reinstated (IE: enemy soldiers only appear on the mini map). If this is true (as this hasn't come from Dice yet only from GamesCon) that would make 2 revisions as the result of the complaints on the EA forums.

    Not impressed. Harvest day was a tiny map by BF2 standards. With that being said I can see the scale is wrong. Look at the tractor trailers. They are tiny in the Caspian Border map. I would say they made Harvest Day to large in that overlay. Also I see an A-10 on that map yet none in the gameplay......strange.

    See how small the air strip is on the US side in Tampa? Now look at the Caspian Border strip. Small.

    Actually I disagree. The landing strip in Tampa Bay was just small. You are basing this assumption of scale on those strips being about the same length, which I am sure they are not. Harvest Day is a lot larger than you think. It just seems small because of the rather clustered flag locations and lack of flying vehicles. Think about this. The squad Deathmatch mode for Harvest Day is a 16 player man that takes place in just city area on the hillside. It has proven to be more than enough space to still hide and spread out.

    Harvest Day in full could support maybe 48 people with the inclusion of 2 more flags close to either base. Since that is my scale Caspian Border should be plenty large enough.
