    I never saw the benefit of joysticks for choppers. flew just fine without one. jets are different though.

    Good point.

    thats kinda retarded in a sense. The games been out for so long yet they havent fixed joystick support???

    Ive never flown a chopper in BC2. they just go down too easily and i cant be arsed to waste my time sitting in the pilot seat to get shot down 5mins later.

    ----------------------

    Ducky, Force feedback is similar to a rumble pad for consoles. it should add a level of realisticity of any game. but im not too sure if the game itself needs to support that feature before the joysticks driver can make your stick shake and rumble everytime you fire your weapon or take damage.

    I didnt really use my Saitek Evo Force for long so i cant really comment if game support has improved. Howver, the stick should still rumble when you press the fire trigger.

    what is so amazing about the X52? I hope it is nothing like the Cyborg X.

    It looks ok, best looking thing is the LCD on it, I like the way that Cyborg looks better, Saitek makes such mechanical looking things, I love it (but this is biased I own a Cyborg Keyboard and a RAT 7 :p ). But thats just my opinion on looks, not on how they perform as I haven't ever owned a joystick.

    Saitek have had the same line up of joysticks for almost a decade. the X52 alone was released back in 2003/04.

    there have been a few new additions to the line up but the IMO the X52 is still by far their most popular. and the formula still works so why change it.

    the next next step up would be an X52 Pro or a X65F. but the X65F is $476-634 here which is a total rip off when a basic X52 can be had for $145

    Some of the features in the X65F are cool. but it just doesnt look as bling as the X52. it doesnt have the blue LEDs and LCD screen and looks insanely bland

    not the best gameplay footage ever, seemed a little laggy but then this is for a console.

    I wonder if it's the same guy that leaked those screenshots of the 360 version?

    Damn this pic looks like shit:

    Needs some AA badly thrown in there.

    The other pics look pretty average, but that's just it, average. I'm really glad they're one of the few developers that are really hauling ass on the PC side of things.

    Dear lord I cannot wait for this game. The anticipation is huge!

    I heard someone say the beta might come out today and I pre-ordered off Origin super fast.

    Of course he's probably wrong but the sheer fact each day brings us closer to the beta is just sooo overwhelming I think i'm going to explode:banghead:

    Can't wait for the beta & launch.

    Finally pre-ordered our 64 man server today.

    Massive wars on the Battlefield to ensue! :D

    So are most people getting this pre-order through Steam? Where can I pre-order and get some type of discount that everyone is talking about?

    It's currently unavailable through Steam. All the other digital services are offering it, but you will be required to download and install Origin (EA's Steam Clone) to register and play.
