What's the big deal? I already played this when it was an XBL exclusive 2 years ago.

I dont' even play the BF3 game itself. Meh, might just download it and give it a go since my Xbox360 was banned :D

EA was incredibly stupid for backing out in the first place.
Glad they got nailed for reneging on a promise even if it wasn't "in writing"

1943 > battlefield 3

1943 has bigger 5 flag conquest maps

wake island on 1943 vs battlefield 3 - battlefield 3 has only 3 flags and cuts off the island tips with invisible walls restricting where you can go, 1943 gives free movement around the entire island

1943 has been a top 20 PSN seller ever since they released top 20 list for psn

5 flags isnt better than 3. You can add 10 flags and it wouldn't make the game more fun, it would just be annoying.

I hope your joking when you say that those island tips were the deciding factor that made 1943 better than battlefield 3... What are you going to do on those tips besides stare at the sea?

I enjoy all the battlefield games including 3 but its my least favorite battlefield game on consoles.

Battlefield 3 has the lowest flag count per map on conquest compared to previous battlefield games on consoles, earlier battlefield games with more flags were fun, many people played the hell out of them and still play them.

The original wake island on 1942 pc had 5 flags, battlefield 2 wake island had 5 flags, 1943 console wake island has 5 flags... http://battlefield.wikia.com/wiki/Wake_Island

Battlefield 3 maps are smaller and confine the action with the flag count and map layouts, Karkland is more fun with 5 flags vs 3, Sharqi Peninsula is more fun with 5 flags vs 3.

last complaint, battlefield 3 for ps3 has input lag similar to killzone 2 which is not present on xbox 360

Came out on both consoles at the same time, July 2009. Not exclusive.
