Just think how much DLC will cost. Maps that hold up to 256 players will take some time and money.

Let's hope that there's a single-player too. Maybe three different ones for each of the factions.

@lolcupcakes: It might depend on the game mode, but I've seen gameplay demos with respawns. I can't remeber the exact name, but it was basicly an assault map. Its unlikely they will put you out for en entire round with so big battles you could wind up waiting more than 15 mins for a new game. Just a shame they aren't shippin it for PC, I simply can't enjoy an FPS on console in the same way.

this is gonna be a great game! I've played the much-underrated Frontlines: Fuel of War, and the big battles are a sight to see; so much going, feels like a realistic battle taking pplace all around!

@ skywalkerforce, I forgot where I read it but I'm pretty sure there is no splitscreen. The developers defended this by saying that it would cause lag in a game this huge

I have the beta (you can get it at gamestop for preordering) and there is no lag. And yes, this game is epic.

That looks like Battlefield 2 new and improved, for the Ps3! I might just get a Ps3 for this reason only! Love the customizability.

i hope this game will attract some of the people that still play counter strike(those guys put the "tactical" in "tactical fps"). this game could become the bar that all other online shooters are judged on, or it could become the epic failure that zipper will want to sweep under the rug untill they come out with annother quality game. At this point, what the success, of failure, of this game boils down to is lag.

...what would be cool...is if you could play offline with 255 bots and one you and be able to customized each teams AI levels...... And im saying this because it doesnt say anywhere if this is actually single player capable -_-

I hope it's good. I can't help but be skeptical but I'll give it a shot regardless.

we all know a 360 coudlnt handle this game. this game is going to be one of the best online multiplayer games ever. im glad they pushed the release date back because im too poor to buy this and mw2 in the same month.

I hope there will be local system multiplayer online. I hate that there is hardly any good games on the PS3 that allow you and a friend on the same system to play online together or against each other. I'm pretty stoked for this game, I'm glad its coming out in late Jan because that will give Modern Warfare 2's hype to die down thus being able to promote the game better.

This game should come with a headset, if players can’t talk to each other then there won’t be much teamwork going on. Saying that....... I hope you can mute Individual players because I dont want some silly little child screeching in me ear hole! The game is looking awesome tho and I cant wait to get my hands on it.

@sciarrabba i think (like many games) there should be a way to screen out kids. they are the one thing that ruins any game. was there an option to boot / ban a player? the major success fo this title will be the community. i never LOVED halo or cod 4, although i can appreciate them on their own merits, they were not great for squad / team play. am loving the level of customisation. how real were the guns? coudl you switch firing modes? fully auto vs (single shot) accuracy? love the notion of earning credits for upgrades. teamwork should reward the player with customisation. REAL modern warfare is about using what youve got and winning. so i can see how being in a well disciplined team can win over better tech. i will strongly consider buying a ps3 for this title alone. IF all the above are included

@asilaydying4- If your a bit skeptical of this game, than u should look into other games! The main reason why I have or bought a PS3 was for Uncharted! Downloaded the multiplayer demo and it is FUN! You can do team work, or u can just mess around going solo! ;)

asilaydying4

I wish I could get this game but I have a really bad feeling about the fact that you will need teamwork. Just because it isn't Halo or CoD doesn't mean you won't have to deal with 40% of your team messing around defending the wrong objectives or just rushing an objective and being cut down everytime, and judging by how popular this game is becoming, you can expect hordes of little kids that will trash talk their team mates until the game ends... I don't know about you guys, but the sound of all of that is the major deciding factor that will keep me from buying a PS3 to play this... with that said though, the game does look amazing and I know it will get amazing reviews and every one who plays it will enjoy every second of it, I'm just curious as to how long the good community will last

Is it just me, or it seems like the best multiplayer shooter game that will be available at that time ? I haven't played online shooters heavily since Counter Strike, nothing realy had me going as this title. But MAG looks very promising IF the teamplay and features will actualy work as it's intended to.

I hope this is good. I really like 32 vs 32 player on BF 2142 (On PC) which has a really good Squad/Commander system. However, getting people to work together was still really difficult. Fortunately for 2142, the objectives were just Attack/Defend Control points. It will be interesting to see how much teamwork can be achieved, and how consistently you can get on a good team.

When I saw the initial screens/videos of this game, the weapons did not appear to be real world weapons, as if the developers decided not to pay for licensing the weapons. I am glad to see that they have changed this or my impressions were wrong.

Great game I'm stoked about the fact that everyone will go Rambo on the battlefield and there will be chaos and no team play YES !!!!!

i agree, previous videos on this game had me worried that the graphics would be a little under par, and that the lag would be a big issue. i am truly sold now. i CANT wait for this game to come out. let me get in there NOW!

sup everybody. I have played the beta and for all the people who doubt this game, shame on you. Zipper has done a beautiful job on this game. Those of you that are skeptic of the lag, i have played every game type, including the 256 players. THERE IS ABSOLUTLY NO LAG. The only time the framerate goes down at all, if any, is if theres smoke and explosions, but only if someone throws 5 or more in the same spot. Everyone complains about the graphics, but lets see you(complainers) create a game with 256 players with perfect graphics(ex. final fantasy xiii). Every battlefield game I've played has had to reduce the graphics in order to accommodate the players. Also, this game will not be for the people who think they own in Halo or CoD and can solo everything, good luck. This game is realistic and you can't go Rambo by yourself. This is a tactical shooter, not an arcade one. With all the updates and expansions, this game can last awhile, and probably will be more bang for your buck. With good gameplay, teamwork, and customization of your gear, this will become the foundations for all multiplayer shooters. I am going to buy this game when it comes out, but I would suggest each person get it if you have the PS3 or buy a PS3 with this game.

I have the beta, and i will be acting retard if i don't buy it. btw some people where saying something about its menu and profile management...the whole game is perfect, and the things you can do and buy and upgrade...OMG the list is endless. If you own a PS3 then you can't not buy it, if you don't own a PS3 then get one.
