Re: Battlefield 3

It's easier when you use the arrow keys instead of the mouse to pilot. Hopefully, they don't mess with the piloting controls to much with bf3.

As for the expansion packs, they were included free in update 1.50, so no need. If you registered your game on EA.com, just logon and pull your game key.

Re: Battlefield 3

Either way, expect a BF3 server in Tokyo for PC gamers! Looks like the consoles are really showing their age at this piont. They obviously just dont have the capacity to run the latest games at decent framerate. I see it as a double edged sword. While I may be able to get better graphics on a PC, g...

Re: Battlefield 3

That would be nice. If EA/DICE do what they did in BF2 with the ranked servers though, you would have to rent a server from EA for members to rank up - in game. It's also unlikely that they'll have this for the console versions though.
