Id be shocked if we even see a BF3. EA lost their asses on this game and a couple billion in stock

Was it the microtransations that pissed everyone off? Were those present in the beta? Or announced afterwards? It should be next to impossible to lose money on a Star Wars game. So many people, like myself, will buy it even if the rumblings are that it isn't that great. Granted I wouldn't pay the full $60 based on what I've heard.

Loot boxes, micro transactions, EA basically saying having to sink 40 hours of grinding just to unlock a character should make you proud, a ton of things.

They literally lost 3 billion in stock value b/c of the massive backlash.

I thought they rolled back some of that after the backlash?

Gotcha. I still might buy this because I want to experience a game on the X other than racing.

It's funny, each new console I get as the years go by, the fewer and fewer games I have. I went from having like 40 Nintendo games to having maybe four or five XBO games.

I may have to stick to campaign or AI battles. I was getting my ass kicked all over the place. Sure, it was my first time playing, but sheeeeeeeeit.

Excited to play it when I get my PS4 pro bundle.

I played the beta briefly and every time I spawned and engaged a player, I was killed in seconds.

I like how it looks and the fact that there is now a campaign.

I just picked this up the other day. Been playing single player at the moment and I really am enjoying it.

I switch on and off from multiplayer as well. Yeah, it has some flaws but I feel like I got my $25.00's worth.

I enjoyed it, but, couldn't get into multiplayer at all. Way too much going on and too many OP professionals in that game, haha.

Glad you enjoyed it.

Oddly enough, its this that is guiding me back into PC Gaming vs console gaming.

With the PC, I can just upgrade away and keep the graphics going better and better.

With the Consoles, its like a few titles and then I don't use the console any more.

I probably own 10 games max for my Xbox One. I end up using it more as a streaming video platform to watch various TV shows than anything else.

I haven't play BF2 since the week I bought it.
