Stress test with devs. Not bad though. At least while playing, you can complain almost anything about the bugs. So they can fix it

Pfft, what's the point. Most of the game developers don't even play games. I'd rather play against the QA people. Testers that have spent weeks playing it non-stop. Now that would be a challenge.

Why the #&$% on such an inferior platform, like the Xbox 360?! Horrible graphics, horrible controls and low 24 player limit make it the worst choice! PC or even a next gen console would have been much better.

I hope their consoles freeze up like the rest of ours do playing it.

I wonder if this is really a stress test for the XB1.  Servers were down yesterday for a while. hymmm makes me wonder.

If Microsoft were smart, we all know that they're not, they would have had this even on the Xbox One. It was an obvious choice when launching a new console with one of it's biggest titles... However, they could also have been worried that Xbox Live will crash and burn when the handful of consoles they sold at launch will try to get connected for the first time and the internet will go down because of the massive amounts of data needed to do the day one update.

DICE should spend less time playing fans and spend more time fixing their buggy fucking game!

Yay, sub hd and crap graphics followed with neutered maps.

@gamedragonshi I blame the hardware not the game. I had to change my PC processor and upgrade my RAM simply for this game when all my other games run on high/ultra without FPS issues.

@wookiegr very true. however as you say IF MS were smart, the XOne won't support 64 players like the PS4 will.

@virtualskill No reason to buy a new console. There isnt anything to play on the xbox one or ps4 at the moment and theres also a chance of a good amount of hardware failures to come. I dont blame people for not getting a new console,  especially since the best games of 2014 will still be on 360 and ps3

@gameroutlawzz Probably want less FPS dips and better online gaming. I know I would want that if I played a BFIV.

@Pre_ordered_PS4 Agreed, but they're the devs right? They should play AND monitoring the game since many people said it has so many bugs. This is the chance to report anything you know about the bugs

@gameroutlawzz 

same here, had to get 12GB Ram, 6GB was barely enough for small maps without hiccups.

@JLCrogue @JordanizPro @gameroutlawzz @gamedragonshi yeah that extra RAM makes a hell of a difference when you're trolling console articles on Gamespot.

We're all aware that PC has better graphics, but some people prefer the convenience and better social service with console gaming and don't wanna sit at a desk like an office fairy with keyboard and mouse. Yes, I have a controller for my PC too, before you get started on all the stuff you can plug into your secretary machines. I wish PC was the standard, it makes more sense to have an upgradeable system of course, but it just feels scrappy to me.

Anyway, if you weren't so insecure, you'd find commenting on this section about as relevant as a mobile game article. Seems the 'master race' is vastly intellectually inferior and feel the need to compensate with their big machines what lacks in their pants.
