    This could either be a massive commercial failure for the Battlefield series, or they will stand up well on their own, since hopefully they won't be "up against" COD.

    It's all down to which game they decide to make and release...will they make it Battlefield 3? Or will they continue to rip out all the features and feel of the Battlefield series, and release "Battlefield 3: Bad Company". If the latter then they may as well give up now..I won't be buying it and nor will anyone else who's been looking forward to it. Bad enough that commander mode has been removed, using the Frostbite engine is risky..but we'll have to wait and see when the beta is out later this year.

    So in short, if it's true battlefield, it will sell bucketloads on the PC and will definitely top the charts there. If they release BC3 instead (with the BF name) then it will be a flop.

    It wont be a flop,

    I was a big BF vietnam, BF2, 2142 player with over 2000 hours clocked up between them, since then I've got married and had 3 kids, I cant afford to upgrade my pc to play BF3 and that's why I mainly play the console these days, BFBC2 with me mates has been shedloads of fun and so will BF3,
    I will be getting it on the ps3 and will be playing with me mates, There are a handful of friends who own top notch pc's but I just cant afford an upgrade.

    So for the likes of me, BF3 on the console is going to work and work very well, any improvment on BFBC2 will be great as I love that game.

    I cant see myself playing a game like BF2 on the console, 128 players with jets.. I'm content with that, It would be nice to have BF3 just like BF2 in scale (pc version) but I wouldnt ever get to enjoy those fruits so I'm happy with 24 player BFBC2 and I'll be happy with 24 player BF3.

    As for COD I stopped playing once I got to 70 on MW2.. The only cod action I see is nazi zombies when I round a friends house and thats on WAW lol.

    Yes, same here - my poor ole single core Athlon just wasn't up to the job, so I thought "sod it" and went console gamer instead. Okay, now I've got a hex-core rig maybe it's a good time to head back to PC instead.

    Funny you should say that - because W@W is another Treyarch production - maybe they aren't as "lame" as some of the CoD-crew keep saying?

    Yep, sorry - I'm on Xbox
    I'm going to disagree a bit here - BO isn't a sandbox game, but neither is it CoD3 "running on rails" either. That said, I'm going to agree with gtech - BC2 probably wasn't sandbox either, but it's SP was more free roaming than BO or MW2.

    I wouldn't worry about the SP modes though - the way things are going I can foresee that these'll disappear and we'll end up with "online MP only" games, perhaps with a dedicated "training" mode. This is great news for folks who are all clanned up, or those who like PvP deathmatch, but for folks like me who like that story-driven "you v's the machine" experience it'll be a sad day. :'(

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I'm talking in terms of the PC here - clearly battlefield doesn't work on a console (and I wouldn't want to play it on one!)..and I say a flop as if they go down the bad company route, they are effectively making it compete with Call of Duty directly, but without the advantage of a reasonable single player mode.
    The bad company series has nothing to do with the battlefield series, so in that sense it would be an instant flop as "battlefield 3" would never exist, it would be "Battlefield: bad company 3".

    I and many many others would be very dissapointed, but it wouldn't be a big shock for EA to sell us out yet again!

    Why is using the Frostbite engine risky? It's a mightily impressive game engine.
    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.

    i would say using frostbite is a lot less risky than trying to develop a new engine, trying to get their older engine up to scratch or redesigning a different engine to fit the purpose. I think frostbite is excellent!

    May lose the "feel" of the previous BF games and feel too much like BC. If it's not already clear by now thats my biggest worry about it..and the engine can have a huge impact on how a game plays/feels.
