Will the Xbox 360 and PS3 ports even be necessary by then?
Jeez. Just how much can they milk this game? This is the fourth iteration, I believe. And why such a far away release date? Might be a good time to do a next-gen port.
I didn’t have much faith in DICE/EA with BF3. BF3 was plagued for problems for about the first 3-6 months after release and even required a gigantic 1+ GB patch. People seem to forget how horrible the beta for BF3 was when they were due to the release the game in 3 weeks. To their credit, the BF4 beta wasn’t nearly as incomplete or buggy, but DICE/EA has already proved that they have a poor development cycle.
Uh, what? Bethesda, you do hire normal, paid testers. Kind of ripping off testers this way…
I can only guess this is related to a big game like the Elder Scrolls MMO. I’m not sure why else they would need so many testers and looking to get them for free.
Love Double Fine’s quotes.
Pretty much my strategy this generation. Seeing how things went last generation, I think if I wait long enough, I’ll be able to buy a bundle or special edition console with a blockbuster game for a better price.
Okami HD was $10 on PSN a few weeks back during a sale if any of you want to try to hold out for a better deal.
I hope this whole doing Black Friday early backfires. It’s obnoxious with stores opening right at dinner time on Thanksgiving day. If I was crazy enough to go out, it’d be way later in the day, not friggin’ 6 PM. Trying to stick to online shopping as best I can this year.
A 3DS and/or Wii U sequel would be welcome. I’d like a larger scale Super Mario game on either console. 3D World and 3D Land haven’t felt as grand.
I seem to recall that being only a rumor, but I initially had the same question as you.
