just saying guys, whenever EA launched a bf game, the servers sucked like nothing else for the first few days ;)

so plz dont get too excited, id be surprised if the servers arent shut down at least twice on launch day

we can still play single player

+1 I usually don't touch the multi-player until I have a run through the campaign anyway and campaign looks epic.

Yeah well that was supposed to be the main point of the beta, to stress test their backend [Oooh Matron! :P ]. So with a bit of luck I'm kind of hoping for minimum disruptions :)

Im in the UK so testing first on the US for 3 days will also help and possibly allow an ST before UK launch :D

All good here :)

Can someone explain to me why BF3 is available at redbox on release day for PS3 only? Does it contain multiple discs on xbox?

Apparently the additional disc is for additional textures, etc as they have had to scale the release for xboxes without hard drives, etc. So if you have a hard drive you install the game with the additional disc to make it nice and pretty....Makes you wonder though, I'd imagine it would look fine with the 1 disc with a bit of luck the additional textures, etc will be almost PC like....well almost :P

Two weeks ago, DICE announced that the Xbox 360 Version of Battlefield 3 would be released with a “High Def” texture package. A lot of questions were raised, but thanks to gamerzines interview with Patrick Bach, we now know that the game, when run off the 360 disk, will not look as good as if it were installed on your HDD. What’s this mean? It means that if you do not have enough space on your hard drive (arcade version or >6gigs of space) you’ll be able to play the game, but it will not fulfill its full visual potential as if it were installed.

Developer has said basically playing it from the dvd makes it the Standard Definition version. Installing makes it HD as it stream textures from the drive.

They didn't specify if textures were installed but the screenshots show a mix of some really plain blurry textures and some really detailed ones, plus, bad LOD in places. Shouldn't look too bad if you sit all the way across the room.  :P

pc version has about 10-12 gigs depending on weather you purchase the disk version or the download title
just a reference for the xbox, it will probably be smaller though
