Video: PowerMad Review of Battlefield 1943 for PlayStation 3

350°
207w ago - This is my latest PowerMad video review of Battlefield 1943 for Sony's PlayStation 3 entertainment system.

I know this Electronic Arts game is a bit old (hit PSN last July), but I figured it would be worth my time to do one small PS3 review on it.

Those interested can check out the video below, and view other reviews of mine via my PowerMadProductions YouTube Page.

A brief overview: Battlefield 1943 casts players as either the United States Marine Corps (USMC) or the Imperial Japanese Navy (IJN) with up to 24 players on three classic Battlefield maps: Wake Island, Guadalcanal, and Iwo Jima.

After players collectively reached 43 million kills, their respective console versions received access to an additional Coral Sea map; the PC version will have the map available on release.

According to the game's development team, accessibility and value were the main reasons the game went digital as opposed to a retail launch.

Anyway, enjoy the video review below!

219w ago - As planned, Associate Producer Gordon Van Dyke has announced that the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 multiplayer PS3 demo is available now via PlayStation Network.

To quote: Today DICE is very excited to release the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Multiplayer Demo on the PlayStation Store.

Before getting into some details about the demo the team at DICE wanted to thank SCEA for helping us get the demo out a week early for North America. So, thank you to all those at SCEA that helped make this happen, you guys seriously rock!

The PS3 community has played a special role in the pending success of BFBC2, so thanks to all the participants we had in the beta last November. From that beta, more than 130 gameplay changes were made and almost all of them made it into this demo.

As a gift for your support in the beta, all participants will be awarded another point in the BF Veteran rank that will apply to special perks in the final game.

In the demo you'll be playing the "Rush" game mode on a very snowy map set in Port Valdez of Alaska with the US defending Russian attacks. As...

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 PS3 Beta Hits Europe with Problems

250°
230w ago - Today the Battlefield: Bad Company 2 Beta hit Europe, while being delayed in the US.

However, the UK Forums are currently loaded with negative reviews of the Beta... far from lackluster is the gist of what I am reading.

There has also been a patch update v1.01 (7.7MB) released which fixes the initial server and VoIP issues, and the servers are now up and running.

Finally, those who are still seeking BFBC2 European Beta keys may wish to give THIS post by Solfegieto a look, but remember there are only 5,000 available so act fast if you plan on doing it.
