    and before you grimy little maggots come in here saying it'll be laggy.... They did a live presentation at E3 with 256 players from all over the world with zero lag. Resistance 2 also had 50+ players on PSN with zero lag.

    Am I the only one not excited for this? I tend to join the medium sized games whenever I play anything online... Seems to provide a much less chaotic experience. 256 players sounds like a bad time, I'll be honest.

    They break it down into small 8v8 battles that are all happening at the same time in a much larger battle. So when you play the game it will feel like a 8v8 game with consequences that affect the larger scale battle.

    Not on my must have list, but if I'm bored of MW2 by the time this drops I'll consider it... pending OT reviews

    People are going to be disappointed because the biggest bullet point is 256 players but it will never feel like you are playing with that many people.

    The HUD looks like it has way too much information on it. Looks like a bunch of clutter, but we'll see how it turns out.

    That's just it, it's a bullet point. I feel like battlefield gets it just about right for the consoles.

    It's like a persistent battlefield so it most likely populate groups of 16 at a time. You don't go into some 128v128 battle :rofl:

    the point of this is to have an ongoing war so there are no lobbys so to speak you just join an existing war thus keeping the numbers of players up
