I'm not looking to suppress any opinions but more rather wanting to have a legitmate discussion about marketing tactics like a "bait and switch" and on the process of manipulating review outlets.
My observations so far:
- The version on the consoles is inferior in most respects to the pc version. i'm not trolling here. The pc version has a better visuals and holds more true to the true nature of battlefield games.
- The marketing tactics of this game are blatantly designed to trick us. They show you the game running on a super charged pc and then lead you to believe the console is capable of replicating that. Mind you the console tries and does a decent job, but it's still a shitty practice.
- Finally, WTF is with only certain review outlets getting the game prior to release and nobody seemingly getting a console copy until release eve/day. For the company having the attitude that the game is superior to other similar products, that doesn't seem like confidence, it seems like you're trying to manipulate review scores that aid consumers in making a decision to buy by taking away what would be available info.
From what i've seen of the console version, it looks ok but with other big games waiting in the wings, i don't feel compelled yet to devote my money to.
