    I wonder how long it will be before studios finally realize that tying yourself to a big-name publisher is a horrible, horrible idea.

    hurr durr

    AAA titles are shit

    I'm getting most of my gaming enjoyment from indie games, mods, and games from mid-size developers.
    You're missing the real problem here. It starts with 1 big name company (activision) willingly exploiting and extorting their customer base for more money with the pretense of "specialized goodies", then other big name companies see that it's doing well and start doing the same. Now we have multiple companies doing this, and it slowly starts to become an "industry standard."

    The moment it starts to become an industry standard to have to pay an extra monthly fee to get DLC that should be given to us for free as soon as it's released, we've entered the dark age.

    This has nothing to do with AAA titles being shit, it has to do with the companies making these AAA titles now turning them into cash cows.

    And it happens....

    How EA decides to turn Battlefield into a cash cow. It starts with making the battlefield series fully multi platform or consolised and will end with EA making the game a cash cow by making numerous sequels like Bad company 3.

    There goes our beloved pc franchise (not to say there wasn't a console version of BF2)

    If I was a rich billionaire I'd buy DICE from EA and make them independent
    Buy DICE from EA and give financial aid to Respawn Entertainment, remaking the good old IW
    Put them together
    Call of Battlefare.


    I'd like to know what that would achieve...

    Oh boo fucking hoo. A game stopped being developed with one platform in mind. Fuck I might as well kill myself right now then mustn't I!

    Oh wait. It doesn't fucking matter if a game is multi-platform. This "PC mastur raeccc1EE!!!" bullshit needs to end. Battlefield can work on all platforms. It's just a case of if can DICE pull it off, and if they can, will they stop listening to the fucking retards that constitute the community for Battlefield for long enough to actually fix important bugs in the game.

    Multi-platform games work. There is nothing proving they don't anywhere. The problems arise when developers are rushed, lazy or just awful. DICE seem to be somewhere in the rushed/ lazy bit more recently. They were pushed to get the game out early. And now take years to fix problems in their games.

    Besides BF1942, BF2, BF2142 where nowhere near perfect games. They were bug ridden shitfests for years. A reoccurring trend in DICE games. It takes them ages to get the game to the point you all seem to hold BF2 at.

    As a Battlefield fan since 1942 I agree with all of this.

    As long as there aren't game-changing exclusives to the service and its a one-time payment (and the price is reasonable) then I don't really have a problem, it'll just sort of be like the Rockstar pass for RDR, LA Noire, and MP3, or the Saint's Row pass for the three main DLCs + a couple of smaller ones, or Uncharted's pass which just gives a discount on upcoming DLC.

    Yeah I'm sure the success of Elite had absolutely nothing to do with EA considering this and it's just a complete coincidence.
    They didnt form the idea completely from tge success of Elite.

    Who cares when there's Dota2, Max Payne 3, GTA V, Half-life 3..

    That's enough games for like 5 years from this point forward.

    I have a feeling GTA V is going to have me addicted to it like GTA IV did.

    I hope that next expansion pack is the rumored Dinosaur Mode.

    I wanna explore a large map killing dinosaurs with tanks and stuff. Like a less sucky Orion Dino Mayhem or whatever it was called

    Jesus. At least COD Elite is basically just a way for serious players to get all of the DLC maps and such for slightly less money and slightly sooner... This is so, so pointless.

    That would be pretty funny, and a nice break from the regular battlefield. Would extend the life of the game too.
