    For the first time in the series, players will have the ability to go prone
    Huh am i missing something but i seem to remember that you could go prone before in earlier games.

    Yup you can/could..and you can also spot people too who then appear on the mini map (sort of anyway).

    I guess that the poor mans versions "Bad Company" etc didn't have those features, but this is Battlefield 3, which has absolutely nothing to do with the Bad Company series, if we're lucky anyway..

    Re: News - Battlefield 3 teaser and new details

    Agreed, it's all a bit ridiculous.

    BF2 had prone, knives and spotting, BF2142 had dogtags. Nothing really new there at all. And BC2 is completely irrelevant - perfectly good game, but nothing to do with Battlefield.

    -Frosbite 2.0 is the culmination of this tech, entirely re-written
    -Lighting sounds neat, one "probe" contains more lighting information than an entire BFBC2 level.
    -Level destruction is going to be "believable" but basically everything is destructible.
    -Character animations powered by ANT, what EA Sports uses.
    -AI characters and multiplayer characters have different animation sets
    -No more "gliding" animations that look off, animation realism is a focus
    -Captured their own war audios (bullets, tanks, helicopters, etc) at different distances to ensure realism
    -Better audio cues for certain actions, more easily able to listen for threats
    -Plan on better, more immediate post release content
    -More unlocks than BFBC2
    -Dice trying to find a good balance between customization of your character and not having "pink rabbit hat(s)"
    -4 classes
    -Will talk about squads "later"
    -Looking into a theater mode but can't talk about it
    -Will have co-op
    -There will be a kill-cam but it can be turned off
    -BF3's team is almost twice as big as the team for BFBC2
    -They want the pacing of the single player mode to be balanced, with highs and lows. Makes the comparison to a song vs a guitar solo.
    -Part of the single player mode takes place in Sulaymaniyah - Iraqi Kurdistan.
    -"****" will be used often, so M rated for sure
    -Significant narrative that goes with the SP mode
    -More than one setting, you're not in the middle east for the whole game
    -PC version is lead version
    -Why 64 players for PC only? No complains from the console crowd.
    -No mod tools at release. Maybe none down the line either. Frosbite 2.0 is complex and mods tools would have to be dumbed down, so does Dice really want to put their time to that or would it be better spent elsewhere?
    -Original story, not based on Bad Company at all.
    Kalniel: "Nice review Tarinder - would it be possible to get a picture of the case when the components are installed (with the side off obviously)?"
    CAT-THE-FIFTH: "The Antec 300 is a case which has an understated and clean appearance which many people like. Not everyone is into e-peen looking computers which look like a cross between the imagination of a hyperactive 10 year old and a Frog."
    TKPeters: "Off to AVForum better Deal - £20+Vat for Free Shipping @ Scan"
    for all intents it seems to be the same card minus some gays name on it and a shielded cover ? with OEM added to it - GoNz0.

    AFAIK, prone was removed from BC2 to stop people porpoising under fire.
    Society's to blame,
    Or possibly Atari.
