Happy New Year!



It's safe to say that 2010 ended with a bang for the whole Battlefield community. December has been a month in which Battlefield: Bad Company 2 really proved it's weight as a first class FPS game with 4 additional new maps in Map Pack 7 and with the release of Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Vietnam, players received a total of 9 brand new maps to play on. 

The Community Challenge was won by the PC players who managed to reach the 69 million mark first of all three platforms. 

But, since we want to start this new year with a big of a bang as we ended it, we are enabling Operation Hastings for the PS3 and Xbox 360 as of today!

So cancel all your plans, turn on your tv's, fire up your consoles and let the Battle For Hastings begin!

    Why should the consoles benefit from the PC's dedication to this challenge? They should be made to wait until THEY pass the same trigger point!!!! Oh, I forgot, can't have the consoles NOT getting anything before the PC! That just wouldn't fly would it or is that me just being cinical???

    Should've made them stick it out for an extra week and unlock it legit.

    Also, if you want to give the PC players a gift, like say, BF 1943 for $5 or less, or Onslaught, that'd be nice too.

    You PC gamers annoy me. DICE do a nice gesture to the console gamers which if you combined the two are still a smaller community than the PC. But PC gamers like spiolt brats want to DICE to reverse the gesture. Time for you guy to get off your high horse. There is on average 3x the users active on PC compared to Xbox but your Hastings progress was not even 3x the Xbox. PC users get lip service a year round so only fair that the first day of the year be awarded to console gamers.

    Why consoles take gifts when we had to EARN this? PC USERS MADE BF AS SUCCESFUL AS  IT IS NOT CONSOLES REMEMBER THAT.

    Son, I am disappoint.

    @Child of Peace:


    According to the numbers of hours played on each platform (360 and PS3 are both double that of the PC), I would find it safe to assume that there are MORE players, either that or they just play more. Either way one can conclude the teamwork point/minute ratio is much lower than that of the PC. I am not sure where you got your statistic.

    It not that we feel more entitled than you console gamers, it simply that we EARNED the map. It was presented by DICE as a "race" to reach 69 million teamwork points where once the finish line was crossed, the participant (or platform) would receive the map. It was not stated that EVERYONE would receive the map. We simply feel cheated in that we had to work for our prize while you console gamers did not. It is that simple. Don't turn it into something more than it is. Now had they combined the point total for all 3 platforms and then given it to everyone when the points were reached, I am sure no one would be complaining.

    I still feel that this picture applies however: resource.mmgn.com/.../7PLLYLB8.jpg

    Well that's another gift for PS3 and Xbox, when does PC get something? When for instance does Onslaught come for PC?

    I again think that PC is being relegated to third row for having to work for somthing that the other platforms get for doing nothing....

    How fast the PC players forget. They got early access to Vietnam. Grow up little boys. Thanks DICE!
