Incoming Bad Company update brings Maps, Bug Fixes, Trophies

100°
312w ago - Remember BattleField: Bad Company? Of course you do. Some of you are probably still playing it. If you aren't, then you soon might be because the game is due to get a shot in the arm before too long.

After running a contest through which players could decide on which map pack DICE should start working on first, a post has gone up on the official blog to let us know that there will be other content coming when the map pack drops.

There's no indication on when that'll be, or if it'll cost us anything, but the accompanying patch will be free, at least. With this patch DICE are looking to fix several bugs, such as server lag and VOIP issues. There will also be various gameplay tweaks.

Not only that, but three weapons, previously only obtainable through pre-ordering, playing the demo or signing up to the newsletter, will be made available to everyone for free. Check out the full list of fixes and tweaks at the official blog.

Finally (saving the best til last) the patch will add trophy support to the game. PS3 gamers are being spoilt by all these free, content patches. Not that we're complaining. We hope to find out when this'll hit soon.

I'd definitely like to thank QA, developer support, and my account manager - they were very responsive in helping us get the update out this week.
 

Take-Two Considering Grand Theft Auto on Wii?

50°
312w ago - Take-Two may be thinking about bringing Grand Theft Auto to the Nintendo Wii, reports MCV. At an earnings call, Take-Two CEO Ben Feder commented on the close relationship the company has garnered with Nintendo in the development of Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars.

"I will tell you that we've spent an enormous amount of time and effort working with Nintendo and developing that partnership," he said.

He goes on to comment that the company will "continue to build that relationship," and calls Chinatown Wars an "important step." When asked directly about a Grand Theft Auto game on the Nintendo Wii, Feder turned suspiciously evasive. "So without commenting on whether GTA specifically...is coming to the Wii or not, I will say that Nintendo and Take-Two work very well together," he said.

"We intend to continue to grow that relationship." This isn't by any means a confirmation, but refusing to give a straight no means it could be in the cards.

Note, of course, that he says GTA, not mentioning Grand Theft Auto IV by name, a game which could be difficult to port to the less powerful Wii hardware. If a title in the series is on its way to Wii -- and that's already a big "if" -- it's more likely to be a new...

"We currently have a production bottleneck with the PlayStation 3", he continued.

He also confirmed that even with hardware bottlenecking due to demand, "You also know, however, that our business model is not perfect, and that we make a loss on every console we sell. "
