Battlefield 3 losing Preorders??

Forums - Sales Discussion - Battlefield 3 losing Preorders??

I would imagine the only reason this beta was released is because if they did a demo they would need pass some quality assurance or whatever, releasing a beta they can just release any old buggy shit. And have.

Most of you are forgetting what a beta is...jeez

Yeah but there is a fine line.

An open Beta is usually more for advertising and tweaking minor things. But Battlefield 3 is ridiculously buggy.

 

If they would have made it a closed beta things would have faired much better IMO.

I haven't noticed that many bugs that can't be fixed before release in the PC version...maybe this is only the console version that sucks? If so, I don't know what you all are so surprised about. They have practically come out and said the PC version will be the best version by far.



Well when you release a beta with a map thats kind of call of duty esque and and doesn't have much of the things that makes battlefield battlefield...thats understandable. The map barely has anything thats destructible, no vehicles...it's kind of small even by battlefield standards...its a piece of dogsh*t..if people play that beta and they have never played battlefield before they won't be able to tell difference between that and cod. Now for those who are playing the beta on the pc at least they get the caspian border map which has all the vehicles and destructible environments

Everyone knows the PC version will be the best, but that wasn't really the point. The console versions are inexcusably buggy even for a beta.

Because we're used to betas that aren't betas but demos. Besides, they said this was an old build.

What was their logic for using an old build?



I preordered it yesterday. Maybe I should cancel mine too.

I think it was mainly time constraints. They should have just gone the Cod way and not released a beta imo. Gamers are used to patches after release anyway lol
