    This guys credibility went out the window when he refered to Battlefield's controlls being sluggish....sluggish on the crappy 360/Ps3 port maybee... Ugh console shooters annoy me.

    I am pretty sure Battlefield Bad Company 2 was designed on the PS3 from the ground up.

    Not for the PC it wasn't. DICE repeatedly went on about how the PC version was the jewel in the crown and that they did it first and then the console ports.

    In regards to Crysis 2 - nice GFX = meh. It'll still be a lacklustre game like the first 2.

    Bad Company 2 (PC) is a console port. everybody knows that. even the news headline agrees.

    Bad Company 2 For PC 'Not Just A Port,' DICE Says

    most of the development cycle is spent on developing the console versions because of the technical challenges.

    The crysis series had been a favorite of mine for multiplayer! It's like halo without the toy guns and lack luster power suit. People who could control the suit won the game. Not just the folks who could shoot. Mix the two together and those players were demons.

    I'm just not into 6 vs 6 online game play. It's too cramped for my taste. According to the developers these maps were designed for 6 vs 6 only. If a demo does come out I may try it just to see what's what but that's about all. And that's only if there is some anti cheating program used this time. We will see...

    Hrmm... this definitely won't take any crowns away from the CoD series, especially on Xbox. This game will flop on 360 :\

    Any of you guys with a 360 play it yet? The map in the demo looks terrible. I'm sure on PC it will look fantastic on a capable rig, such a shame it even came to consoles.. it looks so shitty.

    There was a big backlash towards EA/etc so now they are including a demo for the PC from what I've read.
    jellyrole, Frick and grunt_408 say thanks.

    Thank god..I loved the demo, but the fact that Xbox 360 was what they targeted makes me sad. It shows where they put there priorities...:(

    take a guess what platforms microsoft has under it's control.

    If you say the maps are designed for 6 people that's sugar icing crap. Make it a 12x12 damnit, even more

    That tidbit of information can be seen in the video. It starts around 3:14. Oh, and he implies (to me) that this will be P2P.

    During the steam holiday offers I bought Crysis Wars, and the MP is not what I would call fun or interesting at all... SP has been pretty much the same since FC1, so if MP is also a boring cliché, I will pass this one.
